Improving upon a model like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can sometimes seem like a near-impossible task. Yet Chevrolet keeps finding new ways to make the Silverado even better with each passing model year.
For the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, its most notable improvements are the introduction of the Multi-Flex tailgate and several trailering and towing enhancements.
The Multi-Flex will seem similar to anyone familiar with the GMC vehicle brand, as it is inspired by the MultiPro tailgate, available for the GMC Sierra 1500. Like the MultiPro tailgate before it, the Multi-Flex tailgate model supplies drivers with six different custom configurations. With this tool at the ready, loading any sort of cargo to your truck’s bed is a far simpler and less stress-inducing task.
The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also sees the addition of several trailering enhancements. A new Jack-Knife Alert system is a must-have feature for making sure that every towing job is as safe as possible.
Several of the engines available for the Chevy Silverado will receive a power boost for the 2021 model year that will increase their towing and hauling capabilities. The 2.7-liter Turbo engine, for example, increases its tow rating by 2,500 pounds for a max rating listed at 9,300 pounds.
