AMP Research is pleased to announce a new PowerStep™ application specifically for the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups equipped with GM’s Duramax diesel engine. This all-new PowerStep design has been engineered to work with the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) tank that is now standard on all GM diesel-powered pickups starting with model year 2011. Because these powerhouse trucks have been totally redefined with improved horsepower, torque and towing capacity, timing could not be better for the availability of the AMP Research PowerStep.
“In the heavy-duty pickup segment, these trucks are in high demand where buyers need and use the extreme strength, traction, durability and power, on a day-to-day basis.” says Mark Wronski, Director of Marketing for AMP Research. “The last thing truck owners want is difficulty getting in and out of the cab. That’s why the AMP Research PowerStep is the perfect solution for ease of accessibility.”
AMP’s highly popular PowerStep line of power-retractable running boards automatically extend and lower whenever a door is opened and safely retract, under the rocker panel, when the doors close. With a weight rating of 600 lb. per side, plus anti-pinch technology designed to prevent the step from moving if resistance is encountered while in motion, the PowerStep is ingeniously engineered to be remarkably convenient, durable and trouble-free. And low-profile, integrated LED lights come standard.
Each AMP Research PowerStep kit boasts die-cast, high-strength aluminum alloy linkage arms that are both anodized and Teflon® coated, plus precision, zero-maintenance stainless-steel pivot pins. It also includes everything required to ensure an easy installation, including all mounting hardware, complete wiring harnesses, an electronic control unit and vehicle-specific installation instructions.
The AMP Research PowerStep is made in the USA meeting stringent quality and craftsmanship standards and is backed by an industry-leading 5-year/60,000-mile warranty. For more information about this, or other AMP Research truck accessories, please call toll-free at
