Every year, the people behind the scenes at SEMA Show in Las Vegas award manufacturers with the SEMA Award for the Hottest Car, Hottest 4x4/SUV and Hottest Pickup. SEMA chooses to recognize entire models and hand down awards based on their entire presence at the show.

Some of the modified Silverados from SEMA included Chevrolet’s own Silverado High Desert and Silverado Polaris ACE+ concepts. The Silverado High Desert has a distinct Deepwood Green exterior color with Oxide gold and Russet accents, all on 22-inch wheels. The Polaris ACE+ included 33-inch off-road tires, an vinyl decal kit, plus much more.

Chevy Silverado 2500HD Crushes Competition in Twist Test

Here at Jim Butler Chevrolet, we're twisting and shouting over the results from a frame twist test that shows the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD outperforms its competitors on uneven terrain.

AMCI Testing, a third-party research firm, pitted the Silverado against the Ford F-250 Super Duty in a test that runs the vehicles over staggered ramps and measures the distance between the cab body and bed to determine how much twist the frame of each pickup truck endured. AMCI found that the Silverado HD took 0.26 inches of twist, while F-250's endured 0.94 inches of twist. The Chevy Silverado was the clear winner, thanks to its use of roll-formed steel -- a higher-grade steel that is stronger, lighter and provides increased rigidity -- in the bed.

Feel how stable the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is for yourself when you visit us for a test drive. As the number one Chevy dealer in St. Louis, we're ready to shake it up, baby.
