Peugeot Silverado

This was featured as pickuptruck.com’s April Fool’s prank a month ago. “Many of us aren’t happy about this change. They may as well badge the beast as the Silveradeaux,” one long-time engineer was overheard saying, but also requested not to be named. Funny.

The rendering, well, i mean the logo of peugeot is a bit high. In normal cars, its also high, but with more height and ground clearance it should have the logo further down. I thought VW was crazy with the Amarok, so…

This is even more implausible than your rendering of a Saab-branded Chevy Trailblazer!

Oh wait, that was one they actually built…

But seriously, 3500-series diesel duallys like this offer HUGE towing capacity, upwards of six tons. Much more than shown here. What DO they use to tow those loads in Europe? And if it’s successful, will there be an Iveco Ram 3500 and a Ford…well, it’d probably still be Ford Super Duty.

That was actually a Chevrolet. Now that Chevy “Find New Roads” for the ’14 Silverado (engine is now the Ecotec3 V6 and V8) there’s no way Peugeot can badge engineer that. Peugeot badge engineered the Mitsubishi Outlander for the 4007; Cadillac badge engineered the Saab 9-3 for the BLS; Shanghai GM Buick badge engineered the Chevrolet/Holden Caprice (WM) for the Park Avenue, only for the Chinese.
