If you'd like a little less SEMA-fication with your SEMA, then the understated Silverado Realtree Concept might suit. Developed with Realtree outdoor outfitters, with whom Chevrolet has had a seven-year relationship, the concept is based on the 2500 Crew Cab and aims to be "the ultimate hunting pickup."

Powered by a Duramax diesel with a whopping 765 pound-feet of torque churning those 35-inch tires, we're thinking this thing can drag home whatever animal the crew of sportsmen inside can bag. Speaking of inside, the cabin completes the outdoorsy theme with dark cocoa leather seats bearing camouflage piping and blaze orange stitching.

There's a teaser video and press release after the jump, and the real thing is just around the corner at SEMA.

Silverado Realtree Concept Debuts at SEMA
2500 HD tailored to be the ultimate hunting pickup

2011-10-26, LAS VEGAS – Chevrolet has teamed up with outdoor outfitter Realtree to create the ultimate hunter's truck – the Silverado Realtree Concept.

The specially equipped 2012 Silverado 2500 HD will be on display at SEMA Show 2011, November 1-4, in Las Vegas.

Based on the Silverado 2500 crew cab, the Silverado Realtree Concept features a custom Champagne Silver Metallic exterior with Realtree graphics. Inside is Dark Cocoa leather seating with camouflage piping and blaze orange stitching, as well as Realtree AP pattern accents throughout the interior.

Off-road capability of the four-wheel-drive Silverado is enhanced with aggressive 35-inch off-road tires on 18-inch wheels and a custom front bumper with an integrated winch.

A Duramax diesel engine with 397 horsepower (296 kW) and 765 lb.-ft. of torque (1,037 Nm) provides the power for towing and off-road driving, while a custom rear cap securely stores outdoor gear. Power-actuated running boards improve entry and egress.

"This truck is a celebration of the seven-year partnership between Chevrolet and Realtree. It's only natural to combine the dependable, long-lasting Silverado HD with Realtree, the best gear for the outdoors," said Tony Truelove, marketing manager for Chevrolet pickups. "Like all great outdoor gear, the Silverado Realtree Concept is designed to get the job done – and look sharp while doing it."

      Realtree should have checked out the quality of the truck before it put its name on it.

        Don't knock because you can't afford it. That's a pretty (and capable) truck......

          Whether you're a Ford, Chev, or Ram guy, overall, most of the trucks are pretty reliable. It's all a matter of preference any more....

      That motor is a monster. Pulls like a dream. All without the problems of my last F250 6.0

        Yeah, Ford really needed to get away from Navistar. I've driven the new PowerStroke and it's crazy how much power these diesels (Duramax, Cummins, PowerStroke) have now-a-days. So is the sticker price!

        Just cause you don't go anywhere but the mall and the office park doesn't mean others don't. There's a whole world out there you obviously don't know anything about...

      They need the rims from the picture, not the video. I know this might offend, but GM's HD alloys just don't look as good as Ford's. The ones in the picture above are way better. I know a few people that bought Hummer take-offs and put them on their Duramaxes and they looked really good compared to stock.
