DALLAS — The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Volunteer Firefighter concept and the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops concept are bound for the 2013 SEMA Show.

The Black Ops concept is "designed to turn a wasteland into an oasis," said General Motors.

The term "black ops" or "black operations" refers to military or political operations that may use measures not generally authorized. The Black Ops concept pickup truck is based on the Silverado Crew Cab 4x4. It includes custom-fabricated lower body armor and a lockable, bed-mounted Truck Vault storage unit. Special equipment includes a solar power pack, a pair of gas masks, gloves, military first-aid kit, folding shovel and rope.

A photo of the truck shows it loaded with Twinkies, a sly reference to Chevy's 2012 Super Bowl commercial about the apocalypse.

"Whether it's a hurricane the likes of which only Hollywood special-effects artists could dream up or other unforeseen emergency, it's ready for anything," GM said.

The Silverado Z71 Volunteer Firefighter concept truck, which gets a red-and-silver livery, honors the service of grassroots first responders. It features rescue equipment, including fire extinguishers.

GM says the trucks, which debuted at the State Fair of Texas, were created "to explore the extreme of preparedness."

Edmunds says: These imaginative versions of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado are set to steal the spotlight at the 2013 SEMA Show.
