WHAT’S NEW IN THE 2021 SILVERADO 1500?

September 25th, 2020 by

At Gerry Lane Chevrolet, we know that the Chevy Silverado 1500 has been a favorite amongst our Baton Rouge shoppers for years. With the release of the 2021 Silverado 1500, we’re excited to share all of the features that have been added for the new model year!

Multi-Flex Tailgate & Improved Bed Functionality

One of the most exciting updates to the 2021 Silverado 1500 is the addition of a new Multi-Flex Tailgate. The new Multi-Flex tailgate will be an available option on all 2021 Silverado 1500 trim levels and provides six different functions to suit many types of jobs. With the Multi-Flex tailgate, you’ll find that have easier access to bed cargo, enhanced loading solutions, along with a standing work station. When you combine this new feature with the standard Silverado Durabed, the 2021 Silverado 1500 is the most capable Silverado ever!

Enhanced Trailering Technology

Chevy strives to make trailering as easy as possible, and you will find proof of that in the 2021 Silverado 1500. The Silverado 1500 already offers up to 15 unique camera views – the most of any competitor. To make this even better, Chevrolet has added three additional features to the camera to provide an enhanced trailering experience: a trailer length indicator, a jack-knife alert, and a new cargo bed view. In addition, the available rear trailer view now has assisting guidelines, and the split-view camera has been added for driving in reverse.

Improvement in Trailering Capabilities

The 2021 1500 Silverado features increased trailering capacity to two of its most efficient engine – the 2.7L Turbo and the 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel. With the 2.7L Turbo, you’ll find that thousands of pounds of trailer capacity have been added to each configuration. For example, the popular Crew Cab Short Box model now has a max of 9,300 pounds in two-wheel drive, a 2,500-pound increase. With the 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel, you’ll find an additional 1,900 pounds of trailering capacity to nearly every configuration.
