2016 Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition revealed

The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition was unveiled over the weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway, and for the most part, it’s a neat cosmetic overhaul for Chevrolet’s flagship pickup truck.

Like Chevy did with the 2015 version, this year’s Rally Edition models will be offered in Rally 1 and Rally 2 variants. Both versions come with a monochromatic grille and a black Chevrolet bowtie logo in the center of the grille. The Rally 1 comes in white with black stripes on the hood and sides, and is available on the Silverado Double Cab’s Custom trim. This variant rides on 20-inch black five-spoke wheels. The Rally 2, on the other hand, is a red truck with black stripes, and can be opted for on the LT Z71 trim for both Double Cab and Crew Cab. Special features include side steps and a larger set of wheels – 22-inch black wheels with six spokes.

Interestingly, Chevrolet chose to do away with the chrome bumper found on the 2015 Rally Edition, though that model-year version didn’t come with black stripes on the side. That makes the 2016 model look more consistent, even if the add-ons are mostly cosmetic; there are some special features on top of the ones mentioned above. In addition to the aforementioned features, the Rally 1 comes with a locking rear differential and trailering package, while the Rally 2 features dual-zone climate control, remote engine starting, and a power driver’s seat.

The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition was unveiled ahead of the Duck Commander 500 NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway. Other special editions – the Realtree Edition, the 1500 Midnight Edition, and the 2500 Midnight Edition, were also debuted at the event.

Pricing details have yet to be confirmed, but should be available closer to the release date.
