Back in November 2019, GM announced the 2021 Chevy Silverado HD Carhartt Edition at the 2019 SEMA Show. Now, nearly a year later, the special edition, heavy duty truck is almost in production. But when it does finally go into production at the end of September, the Silverado Carhartt Edition will not be available for purchase in one state.
Specifically, the Chevy Silverado HD Carhartt will not be sold in California, GM Authority has learned. In fact, CA will be the only U.S. state where the special edition model is not made available, due to a peculiar reason associated with the amber roof marker lamps.
The 2021 Chevy Silverado HD Carhartt Edition is based on Silverado 2500HD LTZ Crew Cab model and includes the optional Z71 Off-Road Package, LTZ Plus Package, LTZ Convenience Package and Safety Package II.
The special edition pickup is only offered in Mosaic Black Metallic paint, which is offset by unique Carhartt gold pinstripes throughout.
Up front resides the prominent bold grille with “CHEVROLET” script. The grille is finished in Mosaic Black Metallic, and features chrome grille inserts and the Z71 badge. The truck also features a black hood vent surround, body-color front and rear bumpers, a black skid plate, black Z71 badges, black beltline moldings (DLO surround), painted mirror caps, painted door handles, and Carhartt badging on doors and tailgate.
The Chevy Silverado HD Carhartt Edition also features roof marker lamps, 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with Grazen metallic painted accents, all-terrain tires, and 4-inch Black assist steps.
The bed features Chevytec spray-on bedliner and a soft roll-up tonneau cover, also adorned with the Carhartt logo.
Inside, the 2021 Chevy Silverado HD Carhartt Edition features Carhartt two-tone interior trim, including stitching and seat panels. The headrests feature an embroidered Carhartt logo, while the all-weather floor liners also get the Carhartt logo. A Black bowtie on the horn pad and GM’s Safety Alert Seat round out the package inside the truck.
Interestingly, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Edition almost featured Carhartt’s signature Duck Fabric technology for the seat upholstery. However, as we covered previously, the material didn’t really make sense for a truck interior, so instead, Chevrolet matched the signature Carhartt material color with its own leather treatment, creating the unique two-tone seats seen in the special edition pickup.
