Since “everything’s bigger in Texas,” engineers from Chevrolet really needed to put on their A-Game in order to impress the crowd at this year’s State Fair of Texas. And they did with two imposing custom pick-up trucks, including the “Black Ops” Concept seen here. Based on the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab 4×4 pick-up truck, the “Black Ops” Concept is the ultimate “bug out” vehicle. With a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engin capable of 355 horsepower, there’s more than enough power for you and three other grown adults to “get out of Dodge”. An LED light array to shine your way in the pitch-black darkness, there is also a wrench system out front just in case you ended up at the bottom of a ditch. Rugged enough to stop a bullet thanks to a custom chassis made from body armor, a bed-mounted Truck Vault will hold enough rations along with gas masks, gloves, military-spec First Aid Kit, folding shovel, rope, and a solar power pack. Though we’re not sure how that one-month supply of Twinkies and Ramen will fare during an actual zombie apocalypse.
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab 4×4 “Black Ops” Concept is on display at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas from now till October 20th, just in time for the season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead. The pick-up truck concept will make its official debut at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas later this year.
