2021 Chevrolet Silverado Review

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Review

The Chevrolet Silverado has traditionally been one of the biggest and most capable pickup trucks. Its brawn has conquered heavy duty tasks on the farm and in the construction industry. Despite its brawny nature, it has always tipped the scale lighter than the average Heavy Duty (HD) pickup truck. This half-ton truck has provided drivers with speed and sharp handling. Driving requirements have changed over the years. As such, the model has been updated for modern times in the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado. Here is everything that’s been revealed about this legendary pickup truck.

Exterior design

The exterior bodywork of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado hasn’t been changed up much. As a matter of fact, it has been improved and made brawnier. From the renderings of the pick up that have been revealed online, the new pickup will most likely have a bold front fascia. It may feature a large, bold bumper with fog lights built right into the lower section. They are most likely going to be made using LED technology. As a result, their lumens will be high enough to provide high illumination and visibility.

The new pickup truck is most likely going to have grille section featuring black intersecting slats. Seeing as pickup trucks designers are consistently improving the creative appearance of their vehicles, this new pickup has its headlights split by a bar on the grille. This creates two thin slits of LED lights. Despite their minuscule appearance, we are confident that they will still provide daylight running and strong beams in low light.

From the renderings presented online, this new pickup truck could have a clamshell hood. It also has a high shoulder line running in a straight line from the front to the rear of the pickup truck. This is one of the features that have been retained from earlier versions of the Silverado.

We presume that this new pickup will have a double cabin setup. Moreover, it is expected to ride on 21-inch wheels. Hence, it will have high ground clearance. To enable easy boarding and alighting, it has an electronically-controlled sidestep. Its bed is expected to be quite large and provide ample cargo space. Moreover, the taillights are highly likely to be mounted on the tailgate. This section is also expected to be fully automated.

From the information that we have, the rear bumper is expected to be bolder and contain reflectors as well. One of the most functional options which can be added to this pickup truck is a truck bed cover. Made of hardened Polyvinylchloride (PVC) or stainless steel, it provides a way to protect the cargo.

Interior design

From what we know, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado is expected to have a bold, beefy and functional interior section. We predict that the steering wheel will have a 4-spoke setup with tactile buttons on the upper spokes. They will provide the driver with extended control over the interior systems.

One of the most consistent, new technological trends in vehicles today is a digital instrument panel. The new Silverado will most likely have this facility as well. Through this resource, drivers will view the speed, mileage, transmission selection and rev counts of the truck. Moreover, the upper section of the center stack is most likely going to have a 10-inch touchscreen panel. By using this feature, drivers will be able to control various systems within the vehicle such as the air conditioning system, navigation, and even the infotainment.

This new pickup is bound to implement high technology in every section of its systems including the transmission. Here, drivers will have a chance to pick from a paddle shifter system or a traditional gear shifter. One of the features that are most likely to be found in this new pickup is a differential setting facility. Here, drivers can control aspects of the truck such as the traction and the suspension differential.

We are confident that the new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado will have a double cabin setup. As such, we expect it to have room for 5 passengers. They will enjoy leather seats upholstered in leather and fabric. These will be available in colors such as black, grey and tan. We are confident that this new pickup truck will have multiple USB ports, 12-volt sockets, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for maximum connectivity.

Engine and specs

Power has always been a big part of the Chevrolet Silverado. This characteristic is expected to be maintained in the 2021 version. With this in mind, we hope that this pickup will have a 5.3-liter V8 engine under the hood. This powerplant produces 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. With this setup, it will be able to tow up to 12,200 lb.

An interesting technology that is likely to be implemented is a new Dynamic Fuel Management System. It allows the SUV to run comfortably on between 2 and 8 cylinders depending on the weight of the load that the pickup is carrying or towing. Chevrolet engineers have revealed that this system operates seamlessly.

Release Date, Price and Availability

There are enough signs that the new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado is bound for release in 2021. Its base trim is expected to retail for $45,995. This price increases to $56,590 with all the options added to the pickup truck.
