Silverado HD To Get New Special Edition Models For 202115
Earlier this year, Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2020 Silverado HD, ushering in a complete overhaul for the heavy duty pickup line with a completely new platform, exterior and interior, in-vehicle technologies, plus the new 6.6L L8T V8 gasoline engine. No less than five trim levels are on offer, including Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country. But for those who want something more exclusive, we have good new: Chevy is planning additional special edition models for the 2021 Silverado HD, GM Authority has exclusively learned.
According to sources familiar with future Chevrolet product plans, buyers will have additional options when it comes to finding a special edition Silverado HD straight from the factory. Details on what these upcoming special edition models may offer are a little hazy at the moment, but Chevrolet has offered numerous Silverado HD special edition models in the past, thus giving us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the 2021 Silverado HD special editions.
Previous examples of special edition Silverados include the Midnight Edition, which featured a host of dark accents and blacked-out bits, including black wheels, black bumpers, a black grille, and black badging.
Then there’s the Custom Sport Edition, which featured 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, body-color grille and bumpers, chromed accents and bumpers, and Front and Rear Park Assist technology.
Another good example is the Silverado HD Alaskan edition, which was only offered on 2500HD models and came with either the 6.0L gas engine or 6.6L Duramax turbodiesel, as well as standard four-wheel-drive, custom graphics, smoked Amber roof marker lights, 18-inch wheels, Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, and – most importantly – the Snow Plow Prep Package.
It’ll be interesting to see what Chevy has in store for the new Silverado HD special edition models for the 2021 model year, especially as the pickup truck segment continues to shift toward personal and luxury-oriented offerings. To that end, special edition models help differentiate pickup trucks from the more standard units thanks to unique content, styling, and features.
We’ll report more about these special edition Silverado HD models in the near future, so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevrolet Silverado news, Chevrolet news and around-the-clock GM news coverage.

Hopefully its more to them than just an exterior difference hopefully the interior differs to from truck to truck to
I wouldn’t expect the special edition models to have too many changes in the cabin…
So what was confirmed was an obvious fact that special editions would be on offer. Then a summary of what was previously on offer?
Thanks. Sometimes these ‘articles’ aren’t needed until there is something of substance to say
Reading isn’t your strong suit it would seem.
They are saying that the special edition models are on their way and that’s important to me. I’m in the market for one of these and I would rather wait for a special edition than buy now. Good thing I’m flexible in when I buy and how. The midnight edition is much more my speed and the new one would look awesome in all black.
Seems like what you’re saying is that you don’t want these kinds of reports but I do. Speak for yourself on that one. This is very useful info for those of us who actually buy these product (me) and not just armchair quarterback on the internet (you).
Rick – don’t pay attention to Andrew. He’s a mid way troll who criticizes anything and everything under the sun with no leg to stand on.
Hey Andrew… to whom was this an “obvious fact”?
It wasn’t so obvious to me, especially the timing. Typically the special editions come a few model years after launch of HD Silverados, not the year after. Seems like you don’t even know what you’re taking about and don’t even get why this is newsworthy.
That makes sense. I don’t get why some people just comment to critique.
Why doesn’t GMA just block these trolls?! There is never any value to their comments anyway… this “Andrew” being a prime example.
Maybe a special edition that makes it less fugly?
Your troll game sucks.
I saw a HD today and it is very good looking in person. Much better than photo relate.
I would suggest a Trail Boss HD as the first special edition model. I would also like to see more trim levels receive the option of the traditional center mount bowtie. Pretty sure we will be waiting until 22 but I would also like to see the HDs get the updated interior for 21 like the 1500.
Have had my 2020 for 2 wks its a assume truck looks TUFF seems quieter than the 18 I had. No CD and dealer put in 5th wheel which I don’t use wished had been advised it was 1100 extraon price. 10 speed tranny seems great will see how it affects mileage but overall it’s awesome
My 2017 Alaskan was a 6.0 gasser.
Thank you for the correction, paracutin. My apologies for the error. I’ve updated the post with the correct information.
You can already do the Alaskan package for the 2020HD. That is already out and was put in the build and price from Chevrolet when they launched it. Also, Alaskan on 2017-2019 was available on 2500hd and 3500hd not just 2500hd.
From the 2020 order guide:
‘Alaskan Snow Plow Special Edition, includes (VYU) Snow Plow Prep Package, (PYV) 18″ machined aluminum wheels with Bright Silver Paint, (QF6) LT275/70R18 all-terrain, blackwall tires, (CGN) Chevytec spray-on bedliner, (U01) roof marker lamps and (DMQ) Alaskan decal (Alaskan decal replaces standard “4X4” bed mounted decal)’
When will GM bring back the Avalanche? Lots of us want it back. I have a 2014 Silverado 173,000 miles do not intend to buy a new one unless they bring out a new Avalanche.
