Chevrolet unwrapped its latest concept pickup this week at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

A tribute to the NHRA Safety Safari – a group dedicated to educating amateur racers on how to set up a safe drag race – the 6.6-liter Duramax-powered 2018 Silverado HD features 910 lb.-ft. of torque and 445 horsepower and is equipped with a nitrogen cylinder fire suppression system with 80-gallon tank and other race-supporting equipment, including an AMKUS Rescue Equipment System.

The truck also features a bed-mounted aluminum frame with extendable mast, Whelen red and green LED strobes, additional lighting and incident support equipment including shovels, brooms, fire extinguishers, jacks, car dolly and oil absorbent material.

The truck also carries Silverado Midnight Edition elements like a black exterior, black bumpers, power-adjustable and heated trailering mirrors and a black mesh grille with chrome bars and 22-inch black wheels with 305/45LT22 tires.

The exterior also gets black bowtie emblems and door handles, a gooseneck completion package.
