Chevrolet Silverado Special Ops Concept Would Be Difficult to See if It Were a Century-Old Boat

-

The defining feature of the Silverado Special Ops concept, which is based on the Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 pickup, is its naval-inspired camo exterior finish. Developed more than 100 years ago, the tri-tone blue “Razzle Dazzle” finish uses a distinctive array of varying color lines and shapes that are intended to help disguise a ship’s speed, direction, and profile to enemy eyes. While no mention is made of how the Razzle Dazzle cloaking counteracts modern sonar, radar, and optics, it still looks pretty stealthy in the chrome-infested environs of the 2015 SEMA show.

Built as a tribute to the “go-anywhere, do-anything commitment of special-forces teams,” the concept utilizes parts from the Chevrolet accessories catalog as well as unique components. Fender flares shroud 20-inch aluminum wheels with off-road tires, and a bed-mounted sport bar carries an array of LED lights and imparts an Avalanche-ish profile. An underbody shield and custom rocker guards take a protective stance against off-road damage, and storage solutions from GearOn fill out the bed, which has an optional factory spray-in bedliner.

The exterior Razzle Dazzle camo paint scheme makes an inside appearance on the instrument panel and armrests, while bright Ejector Orange is used for the door pulls and glove-box handle. The seats are trimmed with waterproof covers with embroidered Special Ops logos in the headrests, and the floors get waterproof liners. Unspecified new brake, air-intake, and exhaust kits arrive courtesy of the Chevrolet Performance parts catalog.
