The heavy-duty pickup truck has been redesigned last year so normally, we wouldn’t expect to see any particular novelty. However, that won’t be the case with the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, which is about to come with a couple of interesting novelties. While the overall design is definitely about to remain the same, we are about to see updates in terms of technology, particularly on the trailering system. Also, we are about to see a new, special version called Silverado Carhartt, which is designed along with the famous workwear manufacturer.
On the other side, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD probably won’t come with a new interior, as some reports were suggesting. This will be left for the year after, as the company is currently busy with finalizing the cabin of light-duty 1500 model. Also, the engine lineup will remain the same, as well as the price. We expect to see this model on sale in the second half of the year.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Changes
The next year will bring a couple of interesting novelties, but most of the things will definitely remain untouched. The first thing that comes to mind is an update of the company’s excellent trailering system. This system is already pretty amazing, as it comes with 15 cameras which give you a perfect vision of everything that’s happening around the truck and trailer. However, it looks like the company is about to update the software and provide an even better user experience. At this point, it is still unknown whether the new version will add more cameras or not.
Another big novelty for the next year will be the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Carhartt Special Edition. This will be a special edition, offered in all HD models. It is mostly a visual package, which includes a variety of new styling details, inspired by the famous workwear brand. These aesthetical upgrades can be seen both outsides and inside the truck.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Redesign
On the other side, the overall design is definitely about to remain the same. The new generation came with loads of updates and upgrades, starting from a completely new platform, which saved around 300 pounds. Moreover, the new model rides better and feels more comfortable. Of course, there is a new styling, which includes a couple of different grille designs, depending on the trim level you choose. Of course, there is a variety of configurations you can mind, depending on the cab style and bed length you make, as well as on the trim level you choose. Speaking of trim levels, the organization will remain the same, which means you may count on a full load of different versions, which offer varying amounts of standard equipment. There are five main trim levels, Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country, as well as numerous optional packages.
The recent redesign has brought a lot of new things but the cabin has remained the same. Once the new interior design for the light-duty model was confirmed, rumors about the same changes for HD models started. This makes perfect sense and such an update will definitely come. However, it probably won’t be ready for the next year. The company is currently busy with the cabin update of the 1500 model, so the HD lineup will probably get the new layout a year later. Meanwhile, you may count on the same dashboard design, which hasn’t changed to much compared to the previous generation, although there are some pretty nice updates in terms of tech goodies and similar things. Of course, you may count on three different cab configurations.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Engine
The engine lineup will definitely remain the same for the next year. This means you may count on two engine options. First of all, there is a new 6.6-liter V8 gasoline engine, which was introduced last year with the new generation of HD trucks. It is good for about 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque and it is standard in all trim levels. Also, it comes in pair with a good old 6-speed automatic gearbox.
While the standard gasoline engine offers a refined ride and decent performances, the optional turbodiesel will remain the first choice of those drivers who prefect something a little bit more capable. This engine has remained the same, so you may count on a 6.6-liter V8 diesel, which features a max output of 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. A big novelty is that it now comes with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD sometime in the second half of the year, though the exact date is still to come. Also, the price should remain pretty much the same, which means that base models should go around 34.500 dollars. Of course, key competitors are Ford F-250 and Ram 2500HD.
