Chevrolet teamed up with camo hunting gear company Realtree and Michael Waddell, the star of Outdoor Channel’s ”The Bone Collector” to create a vehicles suitable for outdoor adventure. This is how the Realtree Bone Collector concept was created and then introduced at the SEMA Show.
The concept is based on the Silverado 1500 High Country crew cab with 4WD, which features a new front-end design for 2016, along with new technologies such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. It wears larger, aggressive off-road tires, mounted on black Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch black aluminum wheels, while incorporating Chevrolet Accessories’ new off-road package, which includes a front push bar, assist steps and sport bar.
Additionally, an LED off-road light bar available from Chevrolet Accessories is mounted to the sport bar to help illuminate the trail at night. There’s also a drawer system in the cargo bed for stowage of outdoor gear, and a cooler mounted just behind the cab.
Seen from the outside, Realtree Bone Collector has green graphics, which incorporates Michael Waddell’s signature. The color extends to the six-piston disc brake calipers, part of a concept upgrade package from Chevrolet Performance that also includes 16.1-inch-diameter (410mm) disc rotors.
Inside, customers will find a new instrument cluster display with a Bone Collector green-tinted lens, matching stitching accents on the leather-trimmed bucket seats, steering wheel, console – including custom-embroidered front-seat headrests. The camo pattern carries over to interior trim components across the instrument panel, while Chevrolet Accessories’ floor liners protect the carpet beneath them.
The Silverado Realtree Bone Collector concept uses a powerful V8 engine with 420 horsepower. The 6.2 liter V8 enables up to a 12,000-pound max trailering rating.
