    Default Chevy Silverado Rival to Ford Raptor Under Consideration



    The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are getting ready for their market launch but General Motors isnít stopping to catch its breath just yet.
    The American automaker is finding it harder to ignore the market that the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has in a way created, and is mulling over the idea of building its own competitor with its new Silverado/Sierra. The enthusiast pickup market will be tough for Chevy to ignore and it could take two approaches in developing a rival: focus on off-road capability, or create a more performance-oriented variant similar to the 454 SS and GMC Syclone.
    The Raptor seems to be pretty popular with many truck enthusiasts. I can't wait to see Chevy's response.

    This is news from the year the raptor launched. Chev had a wicked truck, but never made it past a concept.
