   The Chevrolet Silverado is a pickup truck, produced by General Motors. Despite being a commercial design, its militarized version also available. This light utility vehicle, known as MILCOTS (Militarizes Commercial Off-The-Shelf) is in service with Canada. It is a militarized version of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, also locally known as the Milverado. A total of 1 061 vehicles were ordered by Canadian armed forces. These vehicles are intended mainly for military police and reserve units, where high off-road mobility is not that important. It replaces the ageing and less capable Bombardier Iltis. Production of the Milverado commenced in 2001.

   This light utility vehicle is available with various wheelbase lengths. It provides seating for the driver, plus three passengers. Vehicle also has a large covered loading area at the rear.

   The Milverado is powered by 6.6-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 365 hp. This militarized light utility vehicle is comes with 6-speed automatic transmission. When off-road this vehicle is significantly less capable, than the HMMWV, which is also in service with Canadian armed forces.
