Chevy has unveiled the 2017 Silverado High Desert package, which is based on the concept vehicle with the same name that debuted at the 2014 SEMA show. With its lockable and water resistant cargo system, Chevy says that the Silverado High Desert package blends the capability and utility of Silverado with the refinement and luxury of the Suburban.
“It’s ideal for those customers who want both the security of a lockable cargo area, as well as the flexibility of a pickup truck bed,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing.
The lockable storage system in the cargo bed installs over the steel bed to add dual side storage bins and a three-piece hard tonneau cover. Inside, a cargo divider can be raised to secure smaller items or lowered to access the full length of the bed floor.

The Silverado High desert package is powered by a 6.2L V-8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. of torque. The V8 is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
