Special Edition Silverado Pickups

The Chevy Silverado pickup that so many truck enthusiasts have come to depend on, has been gracing the streets of America since 1987. It wasn’t until 2004 that Chevy introduced its very first special edition Silverado pickup, which was designed with plenty of upgrades not yet available on Silverado 1500 models.

The second special edition Silverado was released in 2004 and was known as the Intimidator SS. The Dale Earnhardt Inc. licensed pickup was designed in honor of the late racecar legend, and featured various aesthetic upgrades including custom badging. Once the Intimidator SS hit the market, Chevrolet began a tradition of engineering and designing special editions of the Silverado pickup that would become incredibly popular over the years.

Fast forward to 2016, and the bowtie brand has a slew of worthy pickup truck contenders on its roster, including three that we can’t help but be overly impressed with. Whether you need a truck to conquer your outdoor excursions, deliver you in style for a night out on the town, or take to the track this racing season in Indy, there is a Silverado that is perfectly suited to match your needs, and exceed your expectations.
