The 2021 Chevy Silverado MD (Medium Duty) line – which consists of 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD models – features various minor changes and updates, such as the addition of new standard StabiliTrak and Neutral-at-Stop options, an open rear axle, along with five new exterior color to its color palette: Mosaic Black Metallic, Northsky Blue Metallic, Smokey Quartz Metallic, Shadow Gray Metallic, and Satin Steel Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Satin Steel hue.
Assigned color code G9K and touch-up paint code WA-464C, Satin Steel Metallic is one of three grayish exterior paint color options available for the 2021 Silverado MD, with the other two being Smokey Quartz Metallic and Shadow Gray Metallic.
The Satin Steel Metallic hue falls at the lighter end of the color scale compared to the two other grayish options. Smokey Quartz Metallic is somewhat in the middle while Shadow Gray is the darkest. It is worth noting that all five new colors are metallic paint options, bringing the total number of metallic paint colors to nine for the 2021 model year. Interestingly, no exterior paint options were deleted for the 2021 Silverado MD, bringing the total color palette to 12 exterior hues for the 2021 Silverado Medium Duty line.
The new Satin Steel Metallic color is included in the base price of the 2021 Silverado Medium Duty. It’s also available in conjunction with all trim levels and interior color combinations. The Medium Duty line only offers two trim levels and two interior color combinations.
2021 Silverado Medium Duty Trim Levels:

2021 Silverado Medium Duty Interior Color Combinations:

As of this writing, Chevrolet dealers are well-stocked with the 2021 Silverado Medium Duty. Models in the Satin Steel Color exterior color are not widely available, since most of the landed Silverado Medium Duty inventory appears to be in a white color. We recommend contacting a dealer to check for complete availability details.
