Chevrolet has unveiled the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Special Service Vehicle (SSV).
The Silverado SSV, which will go on sale this summer, is designed for police use.
The SSV package is available on Silverado 1500 Crew Cab in 1WT or 1LS trims, and includes the 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, rated at 355 horsepower and delivering the highest EPA-rated fuel economy for a 2WD V-8 full-size pickup: 23 mpg highway. The engine is available with E85 capability.
Police agencies can choose 2WD or 4WD models with the standard 6’6” pickup box or a shorter 5’8” box.
The Silverado SSV is equipped with a standard 170-amp high-output alternator and 730-CCA auxiliary battery, which allows officers to operate lights, radios, computers, cameras and other equipment while parked with the engine turned off, preserving the charge of the vehicle’s primary battery.
