The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 light-duty pickup truck will sport an assortment of updates which will enhance its functionality, trailering, and performance. The inclusion of the new Multi-Flex tailgate and impressive towing enhancements help make the 2021 Silverado a highly-anticipated addition to the respected Silverado lineup.
The Multi-Flex tailgate will offer its owners six functions that will serve to simplify loading, unloading, and configuring your Silverado truck bed. The tailgate itself can hold 375 lbs and you can configure the bed to your liking via a key fob or two buttons mounted on the Multi-Flex tailgate.
The Multi-Flex combines with the large volume, LED lighting, 120-volt outlet, and 12 standard tie-downs of the Silverado Durabed to make for the strongest and most convenient truck bed available.
The 2.7-liter Turbo engine is adding thousands of pounds of towing capacity to its already impressive numbers. You will be able to tow up to 9,600 pounds with that powertrain, and the 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel is adding 1,900 pounds of towing strength to nearly every configuration, giving you a maximum capacity of 9,500 pounds for 2WD models.
On top of all that, new trailering technology will make towing safer than ever. Features new for 2021 include Trailer Length Indicator, Jack-Knife Alert, and Cargo Bed View enhancement.
When the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado arrives, you’ll be able to find it at Suski Chevrolet Buick in Birch Run, Michigan.
