Coming off a fresh redesign for the 2020 model year, the Chevrolet Silverado HD will have a few more updates for the coming year, but at the cost of a price hike of $100 across the board. The starting price of the truck will now range between $36,295 and $37,495.
A standout in the list of new additions for the model is the improved maximum towing capacity. The heavy-duty truck will now be capable of towing as much as 36,000 pounds, a 500-pound increase from last year’s model.
The truck will also feature new technology such as a trailer length indicator to assist drivers when changing lanes as well as a jackknife alert that notifies if a trailer could jackknife into it. A cargo-bed view enhancement will also be added, making it easier to align and hook up a fifth-wheel trailer onto the truck.
Chevrolet will be offering the new Silverado HD in various trims, several of which are special editions such as the Carhartt Edition that comes with all-weather floor liners, a Carhartt badge, Carhartt pinstripes on the Mosaic Black Metallic exterior finish, black and Carhartt Brown interior leather seating, plus Carhartt badging on the doors and tailgate. Other special edition trims are the Midnight Edition, the Z71 Sport Edition, and the Z71 Chrome Sport Edition.
Chevrolet has already started production of the 2021 Silverado HD in September with the first batch of units expected to arrive at dealerships in the United States this fall.
