With a name like Carmichael, you'd figure Ricky over here would be into cars. The championship motocross rider is actually more into two-wheeled vehicles than four, but that doesn't mean he can't show some enthusiasm for the automobile. Last year he worked with Chevy on a special Sonic concept for the SEMA show in Las Vegas, and now they've rekindled the partnership for the special truck you see here.

Called the Colorado Performance Concept, the show truck was made to demonstrate "the lifestyle-supporting capability of Chevy's new midsize pickup truck," jam-packed as it is with class-leading technology and stuff. It's based on the Colorado crew cab with six-foot, two-inch cargo bed, with a tailgate extender and GearOn system that help the ten-time AMA Motocross Champion secure his bikes and a CornerStep bumper to help get at 'em.

The truck has been decked out in matte grey with silver and yellow accents, 17-inch wheels wearing Goodyear Duratec rubber, a sport bar over the bed and a complementing yellow-trimmed interior and a performance exhaust system to enhance the available 3.6-liter V6 engine.
