CHEVY SILVERADO E85 HANDYMAN

The Chevy Silverado E85 Handyman is a versatile truck, delivering both comfort and capability to owners who use it as their rolling office or to transport loads of mulch on the weekend. Equipped with a StarGate Mobile dockable personal notebook computer with internet access, no information is far away. From ordering materials to finding that out-of-the-way restaurant, the Silverado E85 Handyman 4WD concept vehicle was designed as a dream truck for the real world of hard work. The bed has been modified to accommodate the Stealth Dump box mechanism, which has a tailgate that hinges from the bottom and top to accommodate easy dumping. The interior features durable, easy-to-clean materials such as breathable vinyl that looks and feels like leather. It's a truck that can work hard all day and still look great for evening outings. It's an efficient truck, too, powered by an E85-capable 5.3L V-8 with fuel-saving Active Fuel Management, allowing owners to "Live Green Go Yellow" while working hard.

Prior to show:

During SEMA Show set-up Oct. 30 by Autospies.com:

Bed is about halfway up in below picture.

The GMC Silverado E-85 Handyman showed off its corn power with a huge graphic running the length of the vehicle. Only thing that could have made this better would have been cob holders as winch and hitch covers. The dumping bed was pretty cool.
