2021 Silverado 1500 Highlights Blog

February 19th, 2021 by


When it comes to the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, there’s much more than what meets the eye. Yes, it’s a muscle-bound workhorse that posts gaudy numbers like a 13,300-lb max towing ability, 2,280 lb max available payload, and up to 33 MPG on the highway. However, there is a lot of brain to go with this brawn.

In fact, the Silverado ranks among the smartest, most innovative trucks on the road. Let’s take a closer look at some top technological highlights of the new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. And if you’re looking to get more up close and personal, don’t hesitate to reach out to the team at Preston Hood Chevrolet. Read on for more tech highlights.

Towing Just Got Easier

With great power comes even greater responsibility, and the Silverado eases the burden on you by offering a host of smart towing technology.

Up to 15 Available Camera Views

You’ll enjoy a dynamic 15 different available camera views on 8 available cameras to make towing easier from start to finish. From getting hitched up to driving to parking, you’ll have a unique perspective that will give you more confidence to go the distance. For example, you can use:

  1. Four available hitch views that help you precisely get aligned and connected to your trailer.
  2. Six available driving views to support vehicle and object views around your trailer and truck.
  3. Five available parking views to help you ease along curbs while making light work of tight parking lots and spaces.

The Advanced Trailering System

The Silverado’s advanced in-vehicle trailering system is a segment first. This innovative solution lets you keep tabs on your trailer’s information and status directly on your infotainment system. You can easily create tailored profiles for your trailer through the myChevrolet Mobile App.

Additional features include the ability to:

  • Make checklists for pre-departure,
  • Check trailer temperature/tire pressure,
  • Run diagnostics on trailer lighting, and
  • More.

And new for 2021, the Silverado now offers cutting-edge trailering solutions, such as:

  • Jack-Knife Alert,
  • Trailer Length Indicator
  • Trailer Angle Indicator

All of these systems instinctively work together to help you tow and trailer with more confidence.

myChevrolet Mobile App

When it comes to managing your Chevrolet Silverado 1500, there’s an app for that. The myChevrolet mobile app helps you connect to your truck like never before. It features a unique trailering component that allows you to look up different trailering terms, read off a pre-departure checklist, and even watch informative how-to videos.

You can use it as a remote key fob, locate your truck, get readings on oil life, fuel range, and much more. Most importantly, you can use the myChevrolet app to remotely start your vehicle. This way, you can remotely start it and allow it to cool off well before you ever enter.

Drive Mode Selector

To ensure you’re always equipped for what’s next, the Silverado features an innovative Drive Mode Selector. This cutting-edge solution lets you quickly adjust your truck’s performance features on the fly. You can choose from six different modes, including:

  1. Sport
  2. Normal
  3. Tow/haul
  4. Terrain
  5. Off-Road
  6. Snow/Ice

Within a moment’s notice, you can adapt how your truck feels and responds to the terrain, so you can stay confidently in control.

Head-Up Display

Today, drivers have more distractions than ever! Even so, you must keep your focus where it belongs — on the road. And to help you do just that, the Silverado offers an available 15-inch diagonal head-up display.

This vivid head-up display presents the key information you need directly onto your windshield, so you never have to take your eyes off the road. You can access key information like navigational directions, active safety alerts, speed, and more. This way, you can stay informed while staying focused on the road.

Integrated Alexa

Your Silverado just got smarter with a fully-integrated Alexa experience. It allows you to use common voice commands to access your Amazon account, stream your favorite tunes, and even connect to your smart home while you’re on the road.

For example, you can easily tell Alexa to turn on your house lights, set the thermostat to a specific temperature, or open your garage. Do you need to remind your spouse to pick up a particular item? Simply ask Alexa to add it to your shared list. With Alexa integrated into your Silverado, the possibilities are endless.

The Chevrolet Infotainment System

From navigation to entertainment to communication, the Chevrolet Infotainment System is your one-stop source for doing it all. This world-class solution integrates with your mobile device and can be personalized to ensure everything is just where you need it.

The Chevrolet Infotainment System simplifies connecting your smartphone to the truck via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, so you can access your Maps, Music, Phone, Messages, and apps directly from your touchscreen, such as:

  • The Weather Channel
  • Spotify
  • Marketplace
  • Fox Sports
  • USA Today
  • Pandora
  • And more
