Silverado 2500 HD – Number 10,000

The vehicle, a MY24 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD in Slate Grey, was presented to its new owner Joseph Vrapcenjak as remanufacture was completed at the stand-alone GMSV facility in Dandenong, Victoria. This is the second Silverado for Joseph, who also owns a Silverado 1500 LTZ Premium. 

Jess Bala, Managing Director of GM Australia and New Zealand, said: “As we celebrate this milestone for GMSV, I would like to thank our remanufacture partner, Premoso, our dealer partners and our customers for their support across Australia and New Zealand.”

“We are delighted that Joseph could join the team to celebrate this milestone and see his vehicle roll off the line at the GMSV facility.”

Joseph said: “I am just so excited to be getting my new Silverado! The fact that it is the ten thousandth vehicle is an awesome bonus.

“My family and I cannot wait to hit the road with our BMX bikes, boat, and caravan to do all the ‘live big’ activities that we love to do together. This truck makes it possible for us to bring all the accessories we need to spend our time outside together.”

General Motors Specialty Vehicles has been proudly remanufacturing the Silverado range for four years in partnership with Premoso. The stand-alone GMSV facility is in Dandenong South and remanufactures 20 vehicles per day.
