Weight Loss: The Chevy Silverado Cheyenne Concept

The Chevy Silverado could get a whole lot lighter in the future.

Chevrolet’s well-known pickup truck is shredding some pounds with the reveal of the Chevy Silverado Cheyenne concept at SEMA this week.

The Las Vegas auto show is showcasing a lighter, performance-based model of the Silverado that trades in the regular cab’s 5.3-liter V8 engine for a 6.2-liter V8 engine that runs on 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. of torque.

GM claims that this concept cuts 200 pounds off the Silverado’s 4,503-pound figure.

In meeting this number, Chevy engineers added a carbon fiber tailgate, bumpers and inner cargo box and removed the trailer hitch, spare tire, the center console inside and some insulation as well.

Also, the Cheyenne concept got carbon ceramic Brembo brakes from the Camaro Z/28 as well as other things, including 19-inch aluminum wheels, Recaro seats and steering wheel.

Thanks to its engine and a high performance exhaust system, this truck will jump from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds.

While this truck is only a concept and may not head to production, you can check out the Chevy Silverado inventory at Nehls Chevrolet!
