Odd that having another vehicle turn to the Z/28 to enchance its own looks would put "some of the fire out". I believe quite the opposite.

What ever happened to: "The best form of flattery is imitation."?

I think the Silverado SS concept looked like a van that someone hacked with a sawzall to make a pickup truck shape...and the actual SS looked alright...I just hated that it never came as a regular cab short bed.

I've been eyeing the new SS sedan a lot, with plans to buy one in a year or to, but if they build this truck, as a regular cab short bed, with the option of all wheel drive...I'll buy it in a heartbeat. I think the Z28 wheels look awesome on it.

Maybe its just me, but i think the concept version of the ss silverado looks incredibly stupid. Looks like someone just riced out a truck. I really like the production version though. It doesnt look like someone threw up on a truck, like the concept does. Then again, i like trucks that are actually trucks.

Anyways, i kinda like the new concept. Looks decent, but i doubt that it will end up looking much like that. It usually doesnt. Hopefully theyll bring the silverado SS back, and i for one hope they bring back the big factory lifted versions (like the Rocky Ridge trucks) Those were awesome!

I think it looks great. For one, they are trying to keep weight down since it is a performance truck (and a concept, at that). For two, simply, they are bad ass wheels!

But I wouldn't worry too much. They are Z/28 wheels...on a concept truck. Doubt they will ever be put on the truck.

Although I would take it! (if I was in the market for a bad ass rocket truck!)

Why go the 6.2 liter truck motor though? Put the LS3 in it along with an option for the 6 speed manual.
The 6.2 in the new Silverado is a better engine than the LS3. Approximately the same power, but more low end & mid range torque.

The real question is which one weighs more, the new Z/28 or the Silverado Cheyenne Concept?

Actually, there is precedent for wheels of a similar style on the new trucks: Just paint these charcoal, and you're pretty close...

...and those tow hook openings make great brake duct locators...

BTW, the original SS Concept was built with an Extended Cab roof/doors/inner bed added to a shortened rear end Suburban...totally different proportions than the (necessary) production-based Extended Cab. Notice the SS's "unibody" rear 1/4s ala Suburban...but the Avalanche used a version of this, with full-sized rear doors.

Little known trivia: There was actually a Model Number designation for a 5' box/wheelbase, created...as a 2WD and 4 X 4, in extended cab and crew......
