The days can be long, and the work can be dirty, so when it comes to the ideal work companion to tackle even the toughest jobs, you need a pickup truck that can deliver. Power, performance, and all the things you need to make the workday more efficient must be included in your ultimate work truck. For those reasons, you will want to pay a visit to your local Chevy dealer to check out the new 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500. Known for its extreme capabilities and legendary toughness, the Silverado is built to do more. Let the team at Richard Lucas Chevrolet help you explore why you may have just found your next work truck.
What Makes the Silverado Exceptional?
Any truck lover will tell you that the Silverado is pretty impressive – especially if you plan to put it to work. The Silverado not only harnesses some major power through multiple engine options, but it’s also loaded up with features to make your ride, whether it’s work-related or recreational, an elevated experience. A variety of bed options, tough exterior features, and smooth handling define the Silverado. If you’re on the hunt for a full-size pickup truck that’s not going to let you down, the 2021 Silverado 1500 is the ultimate choice. What makes the Silverado so exceptional? We’ll start with its power.
Engines Built for Hard Work
The 2021 Silverado is available in an extraordinary selection of engine offerings that cater to the task at hand. Its 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 boasts some incredible power, offering 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. That’s more power than the base engine in the Silverado HD. With a dedicated fuel management system, this engine performs optimally, allowing it to tow a maximum of 13,300 lbs.
Alternatively, the Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel provides the same 460 lb-ft of torque while also making the Silverado the most fuel-efficient pickup truck in America, getting an EPA-estimated 23 MPG (city) and 33 MPG (highway). Other engines available in the Silverado include a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8, 4.3L EcoTec3 V6, and a turbocharged 2.7L. With a selection like this, you’re able to build a pickup truck with the perfect balance of capability and efficiency to get you through your daily tasks.
Towing Made Easy
If the Silverado is known for one thing that it can accomplish with maximum efficiency, it’s towing. Trailering is made easier with an abundance of tech features, allowing you to haul with confidence, whether you’re on the worksite or heading to the trails. A series of cameras allows for up to 15 unique views, providing best in class awareness of what is going on around (and even inside) your trailer.
Keep a close eye on your trailer with the new Advanced Trailering System, designed to keep you informed on everything happening with your trailer from tire pressure and temperature to lighting and more. Pair this with the myChevrolet Mobile App to sync up your trailer and be able to monitor it effortlessly. Other trailering goodies found in the 2021 Silverado include Trailer Sway Control, which helps you stay more in control of your haul, and Hill Start Assist and Auto Grade Braking to help you maintain your ride on tough terrain or harsh road conditions.
A Robust Selection
You shouldn’t have to limit yourself when it comes to your work truck. Not all jobs are the same, and no two days are alike. The locked and loaded High Country trim features a power tailgate and an upgraded tech package that includes HD Surround Vision, bed cameras, and more ways to increase your vantage points behind the wheel. If you’re looking for a Silverado designed for the mud, the LT Trail Boss features a 2-inch lift, specialized mud-terrain tires, and loads of options to take your ride off-road. The LTZ and Z71 Plus offer a luxury experience with heated seats, an upgraded safety package, and an optional premium infotainment system with navigation to make your journey as comfortable as ever.
But these are just some of the many trims available for the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500. You can even opt to level up with one of Chevy’s special editions. For instance, the Rally Edition includes stylish black elements, upgraded high-gloss wheels, and a powerful choice of engines for a truck that stands out in the crowd.
Strong Exterior Features
It’s true, the Silverado is built to do more, and perhaps most intriguing is the Silverado’s rugged exterior, which is designed for any type of work. Its reinforced steel frame provides it with a high level of safety, not to mention the capability to do more. Included as an industry first, the Silverado 1500 features a power-operated tailgate to help increase this truck’s flexibility to handle virtually anything. A best-in-class cargo bed volume of 89.1 cu.ft. allows you to tackle the biggest jobs with ease and ample lighting features help you to press on, whether you’re up before the sun or burning the midnight oil. Be able to do more during your workday with the brand-new 2021 Multi-Flex Tailgate, which folds six unique ways to accommodate your workload, because sometimes a standard tailgate just isn’t going to cut it.
Connected & Protected
Don’t miss out on updates at the job site. Stay connected with features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the available myChevrolet Mobile App, which allows you to stay in contact via your smartphone, tablet, or any other internet-ready device. Built-in Alexa technology, now available in the Silverado, allows for seamless streaming, car-to-home capabilities, and even online shopping for when you need to order more materials without missing a beat right from the worksite. Make your way to new clients with just a simple tap on your navigation screen, or order lunch for the team and more with the Marketplace in-vehicle app.
Ensure that your safety remains a top priority with the Silverado’s lineup of standard and advanced safety features. Options range from automatic emergency braking to help you to stop faster in order to prevent accidents to lane keep assist with lane departure warning to help you stay safely in your lane. Upgraded camera technology assists you with all your tasks behind the wheel, from parking and hitching up your trailer to everything in between. With Chevy standing behind you, you can ensure that you and all your passengers and cargo stay protected with some of the best features in the industry.
The Chevy Silverado is the Ultimate Workhorse
