At the State Fair of Texas, Chevrolet brought out two concept trucks for the Specialty Equipment Market Association show coming up in just a few weeks in Las Vegas.

The Black Ops Silverado is the truck you’d want, Chevy says, “if you had to take a truck to the edge of the Earth and back after the meltdown of civilization.” Based on an all-new 2014 Silverado, it comes with equipment meant to help you survive in the harshest of circumstances: zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, you name it.

Speaking of zombie apocalypse, one great nod was made to “Zombieland,” the Woody Harrelson flick, with a big stash of Twinkies tied down in the bed.

What makes the Black Ops roll? It has:


• An EcoTec3 V-8 engine

• Six-speed automatic (who’d have time to shift?)

• Lifted suspension

• Truck vault with survival supplies

• Solar-charging panel

• Rollbar with spotlights

• Black 22-inch Chevrolet Accessory wheels

• Spray-in bedliner


Among the items you’d want with you, Chevy has thrown in:


• Water

•Gas cans

• Shovels

• Generator

• Climbing equipment

• Ham radio

• Antenna

• Satellite radio


Just remember, when the black helicopters come, you’ll want to skedaddle.
