The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 lineup can be ordered online in as early as June (2020) of last year. However, if you’re the kind of buyer who would personalize your trucks and choose a particular package, the upgrades could take an additional waiting time of 10-14 weeks before they’re fully complete.

The 2021 Chevy Silverado generally has a max towing capacity of 13,300lbs. as long as it’s properly loaded with the items needed. Just to make it clear, towing capacity is different from payload capacity because:

  • Towing capacity – is the amount of weight that a vehicle can carry while moving with a trailer.
  • Payload capacity – is the amount of weight that a vehicle can carry under stationary position. In the 2021 Silverado’s case, it has a max payload of 2,280lbs.

Not much is going on with the latest Silverado lineup in terms of the interiors. For starters, it still has a minimalist look because of the usual grey or black (neutral) colors. Honestly, a little accent would have made it appear more playful but it’s really a matter of preference.

On the contrary, they did some updates on the center console more specifically, on the side of their infotainment feature. This time, they made the SiriusXM available on all the eight Silverado 1500 models which means you get to enjoy more sporting events while on the go. Then, there’s the Trailer Length Indicator that appears on your center console to prevent you from accidentally bumping into nearby vehicles.

CONCLUSION

The changes between 2020 and 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 models are not really as huge as expected. However, big or small, what matters is it’s pretty obvious that Chevy’s still making some updates to their classic rig, to make it more accessible to both loyal customers and their next generation.
