The Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD will receive several minor enhancements for the 2021 model year, sources familiar with the product have told GM Authority. The updates will be focused around various in-vehicle technology features currently on offer with the heavy-duty pickup models.
One of the main areas of improvement for the 2021 model-year pickups will be the software and trailering camera systems, which recently received a major upgrade with the latest generational changeover executed for the 2020 model year.
To note, both the Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD currently offer upwards of 15 unique camera views to keep an on eye on the space around the truck. Thanks to this elaborate camera system, drivers can view angles immediately ahead of the pickup, to the sides, behind the bed, around the hitch, inside the bed, several top-down views, behind the trailer, and many, many others.
The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD and 2021 GMC Sierra HD pickups will launch in the summer of the 2020 calendar year, as per the standard model rollover sequence. The 2021 trucks will be the second model year of the current generation of HD pickups from Chevrolet and GMC.
Beyond the updated tech, the new trucks are not expected to receive significant styling changes for the 2021 model year. That may come as a surprise for those critics out there that have come out in force against the Silverado HD for its updated fascia and styling, but despite the criticism, the all-new 2020 Silverado HD is practically flying off dealer lots, representing an impressive 40-percent chunk of Chevrolet Silverado HD sales for the month of October 2019.
