Chevy brings custom Tahoe, Suburban and Silverados to SEMA

Posted on

Like Ford and Mopar, Chevrolet is bringing a range of modified vehicles to SEMA this year. The most notable are the Chevy Beast off-road truck and the electrified “Project X” hot rod. But the bow tie brand is also showing some more slightly modified versions of its full-size trucks and SUVs at the show that show what’s possible when you don’t have a huge budget and a large number of automotive engineers on hand.

Tahoe Z71 Overland Concept

Chevy’s most eye-catching concept is the Tahoe Z71 you see at the top. The apple red SUV has received the full overland treatment. It has raised suspension and 33-inch tires on custom beadlock wheels to take it to remote areas. AirDesign fender flares house the large tires and off-road lights illuminate the way ahead. A rooftop tent and portable powered cooler are there for camping, and black badges and illuminated sills add a little extra style.

Chevrolet Suburban Street Concept

At the other end of the spectrum is the Suburban Street Concept. The stock air suspension is set to a lower height, and the wheels are custom 24-inch-diameter billets. The whole is black with a new grille that says ‘CHEVROLET’. The black theme continues with black badges and a matte black decal on the hood. Extra stopping power comes from a set of Brembo brakes.

  VW New Beetle pickup truck conversion is certainly unique

Chevy Silverado High Country Midnight Edition Concept

Silverado High Country Midnight Edition Concept

The mildest of the group is the Silverado High Country Midnight Edition. It’s basically the high-trim pickup, but blacked out with a modified grille and badging, plus black 22-inch wheels. It also has a ton of available accessories, such as black exhaust tips, power tonneau cover, tailgate audio, and six-piston Brembo front calipers. But if you like it, we bet Chevy will eventually offer this basic truck as a special edition in the near future.
