Chevrolet is expanding the range of the current Silverado with a new version, scheduled to arrive in dealerships starting this fall. Clled the Silverado High Dessert, the package is based on the concept vehicle revealed at the 2014 SEMA show.

Available on LT, LTZ, and High Country trim levels, the High Desert package combines new styling, an all-new cargo system that is lockable and water resistant and available Magnetic Ride Control suspension on High Country.

An all-new flexible, lockable storage system in the cargo bed locks cargo away safely and protects it from the elements. The system installs over the roll-formed, high-strength steel bed to add dual side storage bins and a three-piece hard tonneau cover. Inside, a cargo divider can be raised to secure smaller items, or lowered to access the full length of the bed floor. 

As with all Silverado LT, LTZ, and High Country models, the tailgate locks with the keyfob, enabling users to secure their cargo with the push of a button. The High Desert package on the LT trim level features 20-inch wheels with all-season tires, while 22-inch wheels and all-terrain tires are available on LTZ and High Country trim levels.

The High Desert is also the first Silverado offered with Magnetic Ride Control suspension. Changes in the magnetic charge alter the damping rate of the shocks, with changes occurring almost instantly. All this to help ensure a good road handling for Silverado’s EcoTec3 6.2L V-8, that is available on LTZ and High Country models and is backed by the new Hydra-Matic eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine has 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful engine offered in a light-duty truck.
