Draws inspiration from the 2014 Silverado High Desert concept.

The Chevrolet Avalanche was unceremoniously dropped from the lineup in 2013 but the model hasn't been forgotten as the company has just introduced the 2017 Silverado High Desert.

While it lacks the Avalanche's innovate midgate, the Silverado High Desert provides plenty of déjà vu as it features a familiar sport bar and a cargo bed storage system that is lockable and water resistant.  The latter system has a three-piece hard tonneau cover, side storage bins, and an adjustable cargo divider.

The High Desert package will be offered on the Silverado LT, LTZ, and High Country.  Twenty-inch alloy wheels are standard, but LTZ and High Country variants can be equipped with optional 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.  The High Country variant will also become the first Silverado to be offered with a Magnetic Ride Control suspension that features electronically controlled shock absorbers.

In a statement, Chevrolet's director of truck marketing said “The High Desert package blends the capability and utility of Silverado with the refinement and luxury of Suburban." Sandor Piszar went on to say, “It’s ideal for those customers who want both the security of a lockable cargo area, as well as the flexibility of a pickup truck bed."
