Chevrolet Unveils Texas Edition Silverado (in Texas Naturally)

May 9 2013, 12:19pm CDT | by

Same package will be offered in other states minus the Texas Edition emblem

Trucks are very popular in many parts of the country, but no state favors trucks more than Texas. This fact is undeniable when you consider that many of the new pickup trucks unveiled that go on sale all around the country are first seen in Texas. Such is the case with a new special edition Silverado that Chevrolet has unveiled.

The new special edition Silverado is called the Texas Edition and it was unveiled this week in San Antonio. The Texas Edition features custom badges and 20-inch wheels as well as a trailering package. The special edition truck is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine producing 355 hp and capable of getting up to 23 mpg on highway.

Texas is a huge and very important market for all automotive manufacturers who produce full-size trucks. Chevrolet says that one out of every six full-size pickups sold in the country are sold in Texas. The Texas Edition gets all of the other improvements, of the 2014 Silverado 1500 models including a new wider, refined interior and exterior, and more. The same package will be offered in other states, but will be called the Custom Sport package and won't feature the Texas Edition badges.

Zounds! A coupe built on a family sedan platform with a mere two access portals? What is this? 1986? Not quite, but in 2016, according to a report in Auto Express, we could see a two-door coupe version of the Mazda 6 sedan. The fact that we have to specify that this potential 6 would be a two-door would undoubtedly confound our forefathers, but thanks to the efforts of Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and the Volkswagen Group, a coupe taking the form of a four-door with a swoopy roof, built ...

Filed under: Classics, Performance, Truck, Videos, Chevrolet It usually takes several years to figure out if a car's design is standing the test of time to become a future classic. When new, the Chevrolet SSR was derided at practically every turn, largely for its retrofuturistic styling and Trailblazer-based underpinnings, but now some time has passed. Maybe it's time for a revaluation. This week Generati ...
