While the numerous custom Camaros and wild modified Corvettes might be stealing the spotlight over at Chevy‘s SEMA booth, let’s not forget about the working man’s Silverado HD.

For 2011 Chevy revamped the trucks with an all new frame and a new Duramax engine. Now the team at Chevrolet is looking to offer even more to Silverado HD customers with a long list of accessories. On display at SEMA is a Silverado 2500 HD Z71 with a Switchblade Silver paint job and custom Z71 graphics. It’s also got custom Corvette Competition Gray-painted 20-inch wheels, as well as a body color grille, tonneau cover, a hitch-mounted winch, and side steps in a matching Corvette Gray. Inside, the truck gets two DVD players mounted int he headrests, and the truck is equipped with wi-fi.

Parked next to the 2500 is an even more massive 3500 model, equipped to pull a race car – which should be a joke for the big Chevy truck with its tow rating maxing out at 21,700 lbs. It gets custom racing graphics, 17-inch wheels, chrome hood louvers, a custom grille insert, chrome fuel door and trailering mirrors.

Chevy SEMA.jpg

Chevrolet has revealed on its Facebook page a selection of vehicles that will be on display at the SEMA Show in just a few weeks time. These aren’t the “official” Chevy SEMA Show cars (those ones tend to be much more tame, with a near-production look), but we have to think Chevy will again be putting the focus on these two models – although we’d really like to see some custom Cruzes.

Three Silverado HD models are being built, one as a “Utility Hauler” by Impulse Marketing, while the other two will be off-road themed trucks built by Ldrship Designs and Skyjacker Suspensions. All three will be based off the new 2011 Silverado HD.

Those three may, however, be overshadowed by what it shaping up to be another year-of-the-Camaro at SEMA. Chevy’s partners are planning a total of eight custom Camaros – which may be joined by more official Camaros, plus what will no doubt be dozens of other ones at different booths throughout the show. Five of the Camaros will be SS models, built by Delta Tech Industries (white and blue), Mummbles Marketing (chocolate), Raging Bull Marketing (red), Revolution Styling (gold), Street Concepts (purple) and All Star Performance (blue). These will be joined by two V6 models including one by GM Addition (silver) and a turbocharged V6 model from Unrestricted Motorsports (white).

We’ll await word from Chevy on just what their official cars will be, but in the mean time head over to their Facebook page and vote for your favorite. And be sure to check out AutoGuide’s SEMA Preview page, with live coverage of the 2010 SEMA Show starting November 2nd.
