For the 2021 model year, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is back — and it’s better than ever before. Not only does this model come with a new Multi-Flex Tailgate and a revamped design, but it also has enhanced trailering features and capabilities. The 2021 Silverado 1500 is a truly versatile truck that more safely and easily tows heavier loads than the outgoing model year.
Features include a new jack-knife alert system, which ensures that the truck and trailer are safely aligned, as well as an upgraded cargo bed view so you can easily monitor the payload behind you. Another new alert system provides you with a view beside and behind your trailer whenever the turn signal is on, which allows you to monitor potential obstacles or vehicles more easily before you change lanes.
The Silverado 1500 also comes with improved towing capabilities. For examples, the 2.7-liter turbocharged engine option has up to 9,600 pounds of maximum towing capacity when you opt for the regular cab/long box version. The 3.0-liter Duramax® turbodiesel engine also upgrades its towing capacity, letting you trailer an impressive 9,500 pounds.
What else is new on the 2021 Silverado 1500? This model year has new assist guidelines to make parking easier, while a trailer-angle indicator pairs with the rear trailer view to simplify reversing.
