Chevrolet Silverado Headed Down Under

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.
