In the never-ending battle of one-upsmanship in the half-ton pickup segment, Chevrolet fired a return salvo at the Ram 1500 Mossy Oak in the form of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Realtree Edition. A purveyor of camouflage equipment for the hunting enthusiast, Realtree has partnered with Chevrolet to debut the new pickup package at the 2016 Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas.
Available on LTZ Z71 crew-cab 4x4s, the Realtree Edition will offer special blackout trim pieces, black bow ties on the grille and tailgate, 20-inch blackout wheels, off-road sidesteps and the Realtree logo on each of the front-seat headrests. More Realtree logos and camouflage graphics will adorn the exterior of the truck.
"Working with the team at Chevrolet on this new Realtree Edition Silverado really brought home to me just how important the right truck is for outdoor enthusiasts," said Bill Jordan, Realtree designer and president, in a statement. "You just don't realize how much goes into building a true performance vehicle until you look behind the scenes. The men and women at Chevy truly delivered on this project. This truck has the perfect combination of features, comfort and safety — whether you're driving around town, on the highway or off-road."
The Realtree Special Edition will go on sale in the spring. Check with your local dealer for ordering details. Although pricing has not been announced, we expect this package to be similarly priced to other special editions Chevy has recently released, with prices likely between $900 and $1,400 extra for the premium look and additional features.
