Chevrolet enthusiasts have often pleaded for an answer to Ford’s Lightning, a single cab truck with a powerful engine and a great stance and wheel/tire package that makes for a great looking and performing pickup, and so far, their pleas have fallen upon deaf ears. That hans’t kept the higher ups in Detroit from teasing the idea now and then.
This concept is one such teaser, as it never made it into production despite a massive response from the market. With great a 427″ LS powerplant under the ram air-style hood, NASCAR-inspired side exit exhaust, and an aggressive stance, the truck certainly checks all of the boxes needed to go toe-to-toe with the blue oval contingent’s Lightning.
Unfortunately, the fans will have to keep asking the suits at GM HQ for an actual production version of this Silverado SS, despite a huge performance truck market and throngs of salivating fans itching to get their hands on one.
