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.
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.
