The new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector comes loaded with Chevy accessories, impressive brake upgrades, and a styling exterior design. Leveraging on the versatility, personalization, and strength possibilities of Chevy’s own Silverado 1500, the new truck comes with a unique personality that traverses many aspects. Its release date should be expected this Spring.
This is what Sandor Piszar – director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing, had to say about Chevy trucks, “They demonstrate what’s possible through assurance, inspiration, and personalization of the industry’s longest-lasting, and most dependable full-size trucks. They have made it possible for consumers to go where they want and this has been as a result of the inspiration that our vehicles give them.”
There are plenty of technologies such as the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities along with front-end design styling. The Collector Concept is based on the Silverado 1500 High Country crew cab. It wears a new off-road package (a front push bar, sport bar, assist steps), larger, aggressive off-road tires, and 22” black aluminum wheels.
Also in the cargo bed is a unique drawer system, a cooler mounted just behind the cab, and secure stowage of outdoor gear. Additionally, the Chevrolet Accessories also bundles an LED off-road light bar mounted on the sport bar to aid it illuminate at night.
The Realtree Bone Collector green graphics are complemented by the eye-catching camo theme, which incorporates Michael Waddell’s signature. The theme extends further to the bungee cords and tie-down rings in the bed, used to secure camping gear. The green color also extends to the six-piston disc brake calipers.
Interior wise, there are plenty of likable features and technologies as well. These features include the green-tinted lens on the unique instrument cluster display, custom embroidered front-seat headrests, leather-trimmed bucket seats, matching stitching accents, and floor liners.
Others include Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, tri-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, full power accessories, exterior heated mirrors, adaptive xenon headlights, and adaptive cruise control.
Exterior Changes & 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector Interior Review
One of the most prevalent changes in the Silverado would be the paint scheme. As already mentioned above, the doors come with Michael Walden’s signature touch. Also, as can be found on Chevy’s accessory guide, there are host of exterior upgrades to consider.
The Realtree Bone Collector rides on Chevy’s optional 22” mud-terrain-wrapped-tires aluminum wheels. Weatherproof and lockable storage for guns, tools and any other gear. Rear-facing LED off-road tires, tubular step bars, and a more-menacing push bar.
Even with no photos provided for the truck’s interior, the camo theme continues deep into the cabin. The gauge cluster gets line green-tented lenses, while the dashboard has the Realtree camo pattern. The steering wheel and leather seats have a lime green-matching stitching as well.
Additionally, an ambient lighting package, under-seat storage system, and doorsill plates with Silverado logos are offered on the Chevy Accessories items.
Although no one knows its exterior colors, standalone options and packages, and interior trimmings – one things is for sure – Chevy will certainly provide additional clues before its release date. So, keep checking the post for more updates.

The system is tasked with the responsibility of forwarding the power generated – 420 hp and 460 lbs. ft. of torque to either the RWD or the AWD, based on the driver’s setting.

While eliminating brake fade, the massive six-piston calipers aid in slowing the truck in a much shorter distance. The brake package is also offered as an accessory package that will cost you extra money.
