If you really want to take your Longhorn pride to the next level, Chevrolet has you covered.

Chevy has revealed a very big — and very orange — truck to coincide with the start of UT football season. The University of Texas Longhorns Silverado is a special edition truck with all the fixings a true Texas fan needs.

The package features Sunset Orange Metallic exterior paint, special UT graphics on the pickup bed and tailgate, and chrome side steps. All of that is available for a suggested retail price of $795 — we should note that's just the price of the package. Customers must purchase a Silverado Double Cab in LT or LTZ trim, or a Crew Cab in LTZ trim, with the Texas Edition package in order to add on the Longhorn extras, says Chevy.

"This is an exciting way for Longhorns everywhere to show their Texas pride as they cruise America's highways and byways, and I'm glad to see that Bevo XIV will continue to ride in style," says Steve Patterson, director of Men's Athletics at The University of Texas. (Silverado is also the Official Truck of Bevo, the Texas Longhorns’ mascot.)

The special edition package hits the market nationwide in October.
