Although the Z71 package is designed to improve a truck’s off-road performance, the Silverado 2500HD Z71 show truck isn’t exactly the off-road plaything that Ford’s F-150 SVT Raptor is. Instead, Chevrolet suggests this concept “demonstrates the personalization possibilities of the new HD lineup.” To that extent, the truck wears a satin Switchblade Silver paint, along with massive Z71 body-side graphics inspired in part by those used on C/K pickups from the late 1980s.

Obama himself probably designed that graphics package.

These were the comments I was replying to:

Chevy would never put that obnoxious shite on the side of one of their vehicles.

You can see a lot of crazy shite by looking at stills from the Detroit Auto Show, but until I see a Chevy/GM going down the road with that shite on it, I'll continue to look down my nose at that garbage on the side of a Raptor.

I agree it looks stupid. I like the truck itself, just would get it without the decals. Not hard to get it without.

Oh and for the record, Chevy made this...



I know you remember the Xtreme.

I'm not trying to be difficult or argumentative. I maintain my stance that until it's put into production you can't compare the two. BTW, I like the looks of the Raptor (sans graphics, obviously).

Nice looking truck without the graphics. Not sure I'd take it over a KR or Platinum.

I did not. I wanted the 6.2 but did not want the 13" wider fenders that came with the Raptor. Nor the extra low gears and 35"s.

In all fairness, I'm pretty sure all the big 3 make or have made vehicles with the racing stripes option. As obnoxious as it may be.
