New Chevrolet Silverado to debut this week at Fieldays
General Motors Speciality Vehicles (GMSV) has confirmed a new trim-level for the upcoming updated Chevrolet Silverado, called the 1500 LTZ Premium Tech Pack. And curious Kiwis will be able to see it in the metal later this week.
Being based on the standard 1500 LTZ Premium, the new trim comes fitted with a 6.2-litre V8 producing 313kW of power and 624Nm of torque paired to a 10-speed automatic, with the capability to tow up to 4.5 tonnes.
The model is a little more tech savvy than its entry level LT Trail Boss cousin. Standard, it gets trailer sway control, hill start assist, auto grade alert, trailer theft alert, a head up display, power sunroof, dual-zone climate control, four heated seats, and more.
The Tech Pack is priced from $127,990 — a generous premium over the $119,990 LT Trail Boss. The updated Silverado 2500 will soon join the line-up, creating a triple-threat of full-size American tanks.
“The Chevrolet Silverado is the perfect multi-purpose vehicle offering unwavering dependability — whether hauling equipment or towing the boat for some well-earned time off,” said general manager of GMSV New Zealand, Matthew Taylor.
“It builds on one hundred-years of Chevrolet truck-building know-how, and now the latest and greatest iteration is available for Kiwis to make their own.”
The model will make its public debut at this week’s Fieldays agriculture expo at Mystery Creek in Hamilton. It’s one of several new vehicles set to be shown off at the event, with the all-new Hyundai Tucson also in attendance.
