2021 Chevrolet Silverado

What's New For the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado?

In 2021, the Chevrolet Silverado mostly gets changes to its interior. Now, there are more standard features found on just about every trim level of the Silverado. The Silverado also adds additional technology this year with standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Silverado also gets more safety equipment with trailering technology that includes a high-definition backup camera for the standard or offered trailer on most trims. The Silverado carries over with the same trim lineup and the same mechanical features this year that it had in 2020.

2021 Silverado Has Abundant Features

The 2021 Silverado lineup includes eight trims. Each trim builds upon its predecessor's list of features and then adds more amenities. Additional features are available through packages or as standalone upgrades. The first trim is the Work Truck or WT for short. The Work Truck has comfortable cloth-covered seats and spacious seats to get you through the workday and beyond. Its technology, generous for an entry-level truck, is a user-friendly infotainment system with Bluetooth and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. On the outside, this trim has steel wheels and LED lights. Alloy wheels are an upgrade on the second trim level, called the Custom, which has tow hooks and a power liftgate. The Custom has heated mirrors and more safety amenities.

The Custom Trail Boss comes exclusively in four-wheel drive and features an off-road suspension and trailering package. The LT follows with a larger eight-inch display screen and a tailgate damper. Remote start, a power-locking liftgate, and in-bed lights are standard for the RST. The LT Trail Boss has a more powerful engine, a 10-speed transmission, and enhanced suspension. Leather seats, navigation, and dual-zone climate control are added to the LTZ. This trim also adds 120V power outlets. The High Country tops the list with heated and ventilated seats, a wireless charging device, more safety amenities, and parking sensors.

Silverado has heavy-duty 2500 HD and 3500 HD variants, that offers more power and torque if needed for higher payload and trailering tasks.
