General Motors pulled the sheets on the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Edition just last month, introducing the pickup with exclusive content via a collaborative effort with outdoor lifestyle retailer Realtree. Now, we’re getting up close and personal in the following GM Authority walkaround video.
Shot on the floor of the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, the video provides a complete look at the truck and its upgrades over the standard Chevrolet Silverado. Hosted by GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft, the video provides a ton of info on the truck, as well as close-up footage of its various features.
Based on the Custom Trail Boss trim level, the Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Edition sets itself apart with a number of Realtree camouflage exterior graphics, which were added to the hood, the sides of the bed, and the embossed Chevrolet logo on the tailgate.
What’s more, the Realtree edition gets black badging, including a black Z71 badge, which was introduced on another special edition truck, namely the Carhartt Silverado HD. We also find the Realtree logo inside the bed on the liner, while the interior sports additional camouflage graphics for the door handles.
The rear end is punctuated by black rectangular exhaust tips, while four-inch black round assist steps ease ingress and egress.
What’s more, the Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Edition comes with all the same equipment as the standard Silverado Custom Trail Boss, including a two-inch suspension lift, Goodyear Wrangler tires, an automatic locking rear differential, AutoTrac two-speed transfer case, underbody protective skid plates, and monotube Rancho shocks. There’s also a set of black 20-inch wheels.
As for the mechanical specs, customers have two engines to choose from, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L L82 V8, and the naturally aspirated 6.2L L87 V8. The L82 mates to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the L87 mates to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
