Chevrolet Silverado

Not naming names, and not pointing fingers, but there’s a lot of pickup trucks on the market that offer more bells and whistles than honest-to-goodness performance. Relying on exterior appearance packages and paint colours might sell a few extra trucks, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t get the job done. While the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado is still a handsome truck, featuring a range of exceptional safety and advanced driver-assistance features, it prides itself on one thing above all else: capability. Read on with Oakville’s Budds’ Chev, your source for all things Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC in Southern Ontario, and learn about how the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado is the strongest Silverado yet—blowing the competition out of the water.


Make no mistake, Chevrolet takes the design of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado very seriously. Only form has absolutely followed function when it comes to this hard-working, rugged pickup. Filling the lane with a wide and imposing body, the design of the 2021 Silverado is bold to say the least. A choice of eight different trims ensures that there’s a Silverado for every driver—from the workhorse simply known as the Silverado Work Truck, to the 2-tone bronze and chrome finish found on the exclusive grille and centre bar of the Silverado High Country, with a range of handsome trucks in-between. A brawny hood hides an engine designed to lay it all on the line, while the striking design elements found across the lineup—eight distinct grilles, front fascias, and wheel designs—lay horizontally, somewhat ironically, since everyone of these Silverado trims are always up to the task. The Silverado’s box adds more hard-working functionality, with a unique design giving it up to 20% more cargo volume than the competition, as well as best-in-class bed width and bed length. Inside the Silverado, a comfortable and spacious cabin offers more shoulder room, more passenger space, and more storage—including available rear-seatback compartments and rear under-seat storage. So while design wasn’t the primary focus of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, it still offers more of it than the competition.

Over 100 years of truck building knowledge and experience have culminated in the strongest Chevy truck to date: the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado. Six powertrains offer a range of engine options, giving the Silverado the right combination of pulling power and efficiency to get any job done. From the 2.7L Turbo engine offering Active Fuel Management, 310 horsepower, and 348 lb-ft. of torque—shockingly powerful for a 4-cylinder—to the amazingly efficient Duramax® 3.0L Turbo-diesel I-6 with 9,300 lbs of towing capacity alongside an estimated fuel consumption rating of 7.2 L/100 km on the highway, the Silverado can do it all. With options ranging from a 6-speed automatic to 8 and 10-speed automatic transmissions, and auto stop/start technology standard on almost every trim, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado wastes not and wants not; as in, it doesn’t waste fuel and it doesn’t want for power.

Safety & Technology

Augmenting all of that muscle and towing power is a range of advanced trailering technology, helping you get from point-A to point-B while staying smooth and in-control. A segment-first Advanced Trailering system with in-vehicle app is available, giving you customizable trailer profiles, pre-departure checklists, trailer lighting diagnostics, tire pressure/temperature monitoring, and more. Add in more available segment-firsts like Trailer Theft Alert, Electric Parking Brake Hookup Assist, and Brake Gain Memory, and you’ll take all the guesswork out of trailering. Of course, tried-and-tested features like Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Auto Grade Braking are sure to add to your trailering experience. This is all in addition to what you normally expect from your Chevrolet, like Driver Confidence advanced safety features, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatible Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system with built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, myChevrolet App, and more.

Chevrolet Silverado Model Changes

2019 saw an all-new Chevrolet Silverado hit the market; so while they could’ve rested on their well-equipped laurels, they didn’t, loading up the 2021 Silverado with a range of enhancements. Starting with more features, including a range of class-first trailering options, the 2021 version of this potent pickup offers more than ever before. Perhaps the most exciting change comes with the availability of the Duramax® 3.0L turbo-diesel engine alongside the wider availability of the 6.2L V8 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission.
