Silverado Texas Edition Available for 2012. First Silverado HD to wear a Texas Edition badge




2011-09-29
  • Award-winning capability with Texas attitude
  • 2500HD and 3500HD models offered
  • Available Duramax diesel and Allison Transmission
DALLAS – Chevrolet today announced its first-ever Silverado HD Texas Edition, which takes the award-winning Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD pickups and adds a strong shot of Texas attitude.
The announcement was made today during the press days for the State Fair of Texas, which opens to the public on Sept. 30.

“We think the Silverado HD and Texas are a winning combination,” said Dave Nottoli, Chevrolet regional director for sales and marketing.  “We started with the Chevrolet Silverado HD, which was 2011 Motor Trend Truck of the Year, and gave it some Texas attitude, with enhanced exterior style and more interior amenities.”

The Silverado HD Texas Edition is available in 2500HD or 3500 HD extended cab or crew cab models with the LT trim level.  In addition to the unique Texas Edition badge, 2500HD models include:
  • 20-inch polished forged aluminum wheels
  • Trailering package and automatic-locking differential
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Six-way power driver seat
  • CD player with USB port, steering-wheel controls and Bluetooth for phones
  • Power camper mirrors with integrated turn signals, fog lamps, and an EZ-Lift tailgate
  • Chrome door handles, body side molding accents, and six-inch oval assist steps
The 3500HD models are similarly equipped, except the wheels are either 18-inch on single-rear-wheel models, or 17-inch on duallys.

All are available with the Duramax diesel engine, with 397 horsepower and 765 lb.-ft. of torque, and an Allison transmission.

The Silverado HD Texas Edition is backed by the best coverage of all full-size pickups, including a five-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty along with roadside assistance and a courtesy transportation program.

“Texans currently buy about one out of every six heavy-duty pickups sold in the United States,” said Nottoli.  “When you take the capability of the Silverado HD, then add the features and amenities of the Texas Edition, we think it will be a hit here in the Lone Star State.”
