MLB All-Star MVP Mike Trout Chooses Silverado Over Camaro Convertible

After winning the 2015 MLB All-Star Game Most Valuable Player award, Angels Center Fielder Mike Trout was given a choice between a Silverado Midnight Edition and a 6th generation Camaro Convertible.

What can we say, the man went with utility over style, but considering the fact that Trout also won All-Star MVP honors last year (where he received a Corvette Stingray), perhaps he didn’t really need the Camaro.

Even so, winning the award in two consecutive years is a great accomplishment for Trout, who currently plays for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

As for Chevrolet, they’ve been the official vehicle of Major League Baseball since 2005, and company VP Brian Sweeney said that “Mike’s on-field performance was All-Star caliber and worthy of one of Chevrolet’s All-Stars.”

The Silverado Midnight Edition that Trout decided he had to have, starts life as a black Z71 that goes on to have an all-black front end (including the grille, bumper, headlamp bezels, tow hooks and fog lights), black side moldings, 18″ black painted alloys, Z71 badges and black Chevy logos both front and rear.

It’s a good looking truck, no doubt about it. And with as much as 420 HP under its hood – if powered by the 6.2 liter EcoTec3 V8 engine, the Silverado should provide sufficient performance, regardless of its environment.

Even so, we’re pretty sure that if most of us would have been given the same choice, we would have went with the Camaro.
