The Chevrolet Silverado HD could be headed to Australia. Thanks to a new agreement between GM's Holden brand and specialty vehicle-maker HSV, the Silverado could get converted for the Australian market.*

According to a report from Australian publication*CarAdvice, HSV is working with Holden to import the Silverado HD to Australia. HSV would then convert the trucks to right-hand drive and make other modifications to sell them.*

Right now it appears HSV is only looking at Silverado HD equipped with the 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V-8.*

The Silverado would not be the first American HD truck to arrive in Australia. The Ram Heavy Duty is already imported to Australia and converted by HSV's parent company*Walkinshaw Group. The Ford F-150 and Nissan Titan pickups are also converted by specialty makers for the Australian market.*

HSV is also expected to be the company that will make it possible for Holden to sell the Chevrolet Camaro on the Australian market.*
