The 2021 Silverado HD by Chevy will not begin sales until the fall of 2020, yet the manufacturer has already planned special editions for its lineup. The pickup has been the pride and joy of the US truck market, although its declining sales have lowered its place. Right now, it is the third best-selling pickup in the US behind the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150. The move to introduce a special edition seems like a step in the right direction. And it is not the first time that Carhartt, a renowned workwear brand, has stepped in with Chevrolet to produce a limited-edition run. In 2016, the duo gave us the awesome Silverado HD Concept as well.
SEMA gave us a glimpse of what the 2021 Silverado HD would look like. The truck boasts a Mosaic Black color scheme, now hosting golden pinstripes running throughout the body of the car. Carhartt logos are present on the doors and tailgate to let you know this is no ordinary Silverado. It also gets a flashy chrome front grille and body-colored front and rear bumpers.
Coming to the inside of the truck, the seats are covered with two-tone black-and-brown leather upholstery. The unique stitching and Carhartt insignia really spell it out for you. Complete with all-weather floor liners, it may very well be the most luxurious cabin in a Silverado, ever.
From a performance standpoint, the 2021 Silverado HD is all ready to go off-road. Packing in the Z71 package, the truck has Rancho twin-tube shocks and a quarter-inch skid plate. The 20-inch wheels are wrapped in all-terrain rubber, able to face the toughest the Rockies have to offer. We’re still not sure if the powertrain will be the standard 6.6L gas V8 or the Duramax Diesel V8. Rest assured, the truck will pack in plenty of power.
The best thing about the Carhartt Special Edition is that it is not just a prototype. It will be a part of Chevy’s 2021 Silverado lineup next fall. Although the official figures are not yet revealed, we are pretty sure it will be the most expensive of the lot. Regardless of its price tag, it will surely attract a lot of prospective shoppers and help Chevrolet get back in the game with a rather mean machine.
