This widely respected full-size truck boasts excellent towing capabilities and a variety of fantastic powertrain options. The Silverado 1500 is also available with several trailer-assist technologies and other handy features.
Safety and Driver Assist Features
The 2021 Silverado 1500 was given a four-star crash-test rating from testing performed by the National Highway Traffic Administration. To further boost safety, the Silverado can be equipped with driver-assist technologies such as towing assists that make hooking up and pulling the trailer easier than ever before. The best safety features include:
• Automated emergency braking and forward-collision warning.
• Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
• Lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The 2021 Silverado 1500 is available in a range of engines including a turbocharged four-cylinder, V-6, two V-8’s, and a 3.0-liter inline-six Duramax diesel engine. One of the two eight-cylinder engines has a 420-hp 6.2-liter engine that propels the 1500 to 60mph in only 5.4 seconds. The smaller 355-hp 5.3-liter version took 6.1 seconds to reach 60mph. The diesel engine was the slowest of the group but had a much quieter and smoother operation. The truck’s handling is rather agile, and the brake pedal provides reassuring feedback.
On the inside of the truck, there is a range of options from the work truck model to the decked-out, luxury, High Country model. Base models deliver the very basics such as manually adjustable front seats, vinyl material, and manual windows and locks. Moving up a level adds a head-up display, wireless charging, and ventilated front seats. The crew cab has a giant rear seat with ample headroom. Additionally, Chevy is giving consumers the option of different bed lengths to satisfy the traditionalists.
Do not expect to save money at the pump with the Silverado 1500 but there are powertrain options that are more fuel-efficient than others. The diesel is the most economical with estimates of 23mpg city and 33mpg highway based on the rear-wheel-drive model. Adding all-wheel drive decreases the highway rating to 26mpg. The gas-eating all-wheel-drive turbocharged four-cylinder has 20mpg city and 22mpg highway. The all-wheel-drive 5.3-liter V-8 collects 16mpg city and 22mpg highway. The 6.2-liter version is similar with estimates of 15/21mpg.
