Chevy Announces UT Special Edition Silverado


Growing up in Texas means being constantly reminded of those ubiquitous Texas A&M car decals that our College Station frenemies love to tack willy-nilly on the backs—and windows, and tailgates—of their trucks. I’m still not sure what a “Century Club” is, but it sounds like an old sandwich.

Fear not, Texas diehards: Now you can fight back against gaudy Aggie stickers, thanks to the newly announced 2015 Chevrolet Silverado UT Special Edition in “Sunset Orange Metallic,” which appears to be a shinier version of burnt orange.

Featuring Longhorn decals on the bed and tailgate, the UT-edition Silverado is a $795 add-on package to any “Silverado Double Cab in LT or LTZ trim, or a Crew Cab in LTZ trim, with the Texas Edition package,” according to the press release. The package also comes with chrome side steps and the feeling of superiority that comes from driving a burnt-orange pickup truck with Longhorn decals on the sides.

“This is an exciting way for Longhorns everywhere to show their Texas pride as they cruise America’s highways and byways, and I’m glad to see that Bevo XIV will continue to ride in style,” said Athletics Director Steve Patterson in a statement. “We appreciate our great partnership with Chevrolet and their support of Texas Athletics.”

Chevrolet expects the UT Silverado to hit the market in October. We hope they’ll be rolled out in time for the Red River Showdown, since a fleet of these rolling into Fair Park would make any Sooner tremble in awe and sublime fear.
