The current generation may be quite fresh on the market but that doesn’t mean we won’t see some interesting novelties for the upcoming model years. The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 will bring a couple of interesting updates. While many experts were expecting to see a new interior design, it looks like that won’t happen. Instead, the company will offer a little bit more modest changes, in the form of three new packages. Other than that, things are about to remain the same.
This means you may count on a pickup truck that may not be the most refined from the inside, but definitely has a lot of great things to offer. You may count on a wide engine offer, class-leading towing capacity and many other great things. Just like the competition, this pickup truck is also available with a diesel engine under the hood. We expect to see 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 sometime this fall.
2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 Changes
When it comes to 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 novelties, the company has prepared a couple of nice updates. We are about to see three new packages, of editions if you want. The first one will be called Texas Edition Plus. This version will be reserved for lower-grade trim levels, such as LT and RST. It will come with several visual upgrades, including new wheels, Texas Edition badging etc. Of course, you may count on loads of additions to the list of standard equipment, such as locking differential, the whole Convenience package etc.
The All-Star Edition Plus will be also reserved for LT and RST dollars. Once again, you may count on several visual upgrades, as well as several additions to the list of standard equipment.
The third package will be called LTZ Premium Texas Edition and as the name says, it will be reserved for the LTZ trim. This version will come standard with complete Convenience II package, Safety package, power sunroof, Texas package badging etc.
2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 Redesign
While there are several interesting editions to come, the overall layout will remain the same. The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 will carry on with a familiar layout, which has been around for just a couple of years. The new model rides on a T1 platform and offers a great balance between performances and comfort. The last year’s update has brought several interesting improvements and among them, the one that comes first to mind is improved towing capacity. This truck can now tow up to 13.400 pounds, which is a class-leading rating.
Visually, the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 won’t feature any particular change. You may count on the same styling, which comes with a couple of different grille designs, depending on the version you pick.
Many experts were expecting to finally see Silverado with new interior design. The recent redesign hasn’t brought any particular change in terms of the dashboard design, which was a little bit disappointing. With the presentation of the new Tahoe, most of us expected to see 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the same dashboard design, which looks way better than the current one. However, it looks like we will have to wait for another year. The upcoming model year will carry on in the same way, with a familiar dashboard layout, which feels a little bit like a mixed bag, especially if we compare it with the new Ram 1500. Still, the cabin definitely has a lot of strong points, such as a long list of standard equipment, fine materials in higher trim levels etc. Also, crew cab models offer some of the biggest amounts of space in the class.
2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 Engines
Under the hood, the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 will certainly carry on with the same engines in the offer. Base models will come with a good-old 4.3-liter V6, which puts out around 285 horsepower. There is also a new 2.7-liter turbo-four, which features a max output of 310 horsepower.
Of course, there are also two familiar V8 units in the offer. The first one is a 5.3-liter engine that puts out around 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet torque. Also, you may count on a 6.2-liter engine that is good for about 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. With the optional Performance Package, the output goes up to 435 horsepower.
Finally, you can pick a version with a diesel engine. This model comes with a familiar 3.0-liter V6, which puts out around 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All engines come in pairs with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 this fall. Bigger changes in price are not expected, so base models should be available already 28.500 dollars.
