Read on, with your source for all things Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC in Alberta: Jack Carter Chev!

Design

While plenty of pickups out there hang their hat on their looks, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 places looks behind utility; with that being said, it’s still a damn good looking truck. Form and function collide in this rugged pickup, all 8 trims carrying a wide and imposing body while altering the fine details ever so slightly—like the 2-tone bronze and chrome grille exclusive to the Silverado High Country, with 8 distinct grilles, front fascias, and wheel designs in all. The Silverado 1500’s box provides the first glimpse at the exceptional utility of this Chevy pickup, with a smart design offering up to 20% more cargo volume than the “competition” (we use the term lightly), along with the all-new available Multi-Flex tailgate. Best-in-class bed width and length continue the Silverado’s proud tradition of outdoing the competition, while a spacious and comfortable interior also offers class-leading shoulder room, passenger space, and storage—from the unique design of the centre console to the available rear-seatback and rear under-seat storage compartments.

Performance

All that utility doesn’t mean much without the muscle to back it up; luckily, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado is more than up to the task. Six powertrain options from a 2.7L Turbo engine to a brawny 6.2L EcoTec3 V8—both with Active Fuel Management—give the 2021 Silverado 1500 up to 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. For regular heavy-duty hauling, smart money is on the Duramax® 3.0L Turbo-diesel engine with its great fuel efficiency and 460 lb-ft of torque found lower in the powerband. A choice of  6-, 8-, or 10-speed automatic transmission further lets you match your Silverado to your needs, with the combination of the advanced 10-speed automatic and Auto Stop/Start technology providing the type of efficiency you didn’t know a truck could offer.

Safety & Technology

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado offers plenty of brains to go along with all that brawn, with advanced trailering technology like the segment-first Advanced Trailering system with available in-vehicle app providing next level towing assistance. Other segment-firsts like the available Trailer Theft Alert, Electric Parking Brake Hookup Assist, and Brake Gain Memory make towing so simple you’d swear you could do it with your eyes shut—though that’s not recommended. Regular driver assistance features like Trailer Sway Control and Hill Start Assist are still in the mix, while the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system (with built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot) provides added connectivity to your commute.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Model Changes

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 didn’t see a great deal of changes, due to the complete revamp the truck underwent in 2019. For 2021, there’s definitely a greater range of updates and new features, like the available Multi-Flex tailgate, improved max-tow ratings, and even more trailer-assistance features.
