Chevy Alaskan bows at recent show in Las Vegas

Chevrolet used the recent Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas to unwrap a Silverado pickup designed to move a lot of snow.

The Silverado 2500HD Alaskan Edition concept truck features a serious custom snow plow and a striking blue paint job. A chrome grille and chrome bumpers, emblems and trailering mirrors accent the Alaskan concept’s blue exterior along with silver accents on the rear fender and a very angry grizzly bear graphic.

While this is a concept truck, Chevy says it’s built atop a 2017 production package that will incorporate a factory snowplow prep package.

The Alaskan sits at 20-inch chrome wheels and features a leveling kit that ensures an even stance when the plow is attached. Chevy added a rubberized floor coating makes brushing out snow and ice easier.

The Alaskan is powered by the new 6.6-liter Duramax V8 diesel with its 445 horsepower and 910 lb.-ft. of torque.

The production Alaskan Edition package will be offered on 2017 Silverado HD Work Truck and LT models and will include the snowplow prep package, 18-inch wheels with DuraTrac tires, smoked amber roof marker lights, a spray-on bedliner and Alaskan graphics.
