2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 driving
If you’re in the market for a powerful new pickup in Lakeland, then the 2021 Chevy Silverado is surely on your shortlist. But don’t take it from us—respected reviewers like US News and World Report praise the 2021 Silverado for its “potent engines,” noting that it can “tow and haul as much as or more than most rivals,” offers a “spacious interior with easy-to-use tech features,” and even “earns the highest predicted reliability rating in the class.” Join Chevrolet Center Inc for a look at what auto experts are saying in their 2021 Chevrolet Silverado reviews, below.


2021 Chevy Silverado vs. the Competition

Competition is tough as ever in the mid-size and heavy-duty pickup truck segments, with rivals like the Ford- F-150, the RAM 1500, and the Silverado all battling for the top spot. That’s especially true when it comes to towing capability, a key spec for this class. Here, the Silverado 1500 tops the F-150’s 7,730-pound maximum with a mighty 9,700 pounds of towing power.

  • Edmunds: “For the second year in a row, Chevrolet’s full-size light-duty pickup truck gets a round of updates designed to add value and make it more appealing in comparison to primary rivals from Ford and Ram. Highlights include a new configurable tailgate (the Multi-Flex) that opens a variety of ways plus upgraded infotainment and trailer-towing technology. There’s also an adaptive suspension option for the top trim level that should smooth out the ride quality.”

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Reviews: Capability

The top Silverado 1500 engine is a 420 hp 6.2L V8 that’s impressively quick on the highway, and far more fuel efficient than you’d expect for that kind of power. The specs look just as good across the trim lineup, and reviewers at US News are impressed that “the vast majority of Silverado models can haul upward of 2,000 pounds and tow at least 9,000 pounds.”

On that note, auto experts at Motor Trend note that “models with the diesel six-cylinder or turbocharged four-cylinder receive improved max-tow ratings” for 2021, and offer plenty of praise for the Silverado’s performance in general:

  • Motor Trend: “Most of the Silverado’s available five engines feel well-tuned and capable. That’s true even of the 2.7-liter turbo-four, which tows and accelerates adeptly given its relatively small size. Perhaps making the 2.7 more appealing for 2021, Chevy has upped its towing capacity by a couple thousand pounds in every configuration. Both V-8s are expectedly powerful, but the 5.3-liter mill is saddled with slow low-speed throttle responses and a recalcitrant eight-speed transmission. Handling is responsive although unladen ride quality can be jittery. Its brakes require a firm press, but the truck stops well.”

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Reviews: Technology

Many truck-buyers tend to focus on the Silverado’s otherworldly towing talents, but there’s a lot to love inside the cabin, too. From advanced driver-assist safety systems to an intuitive infotainment interface, the Silverado is packed with the technology features that today’s Davenport drivers desire:

  • Motortrend: “For 2021, the cameras in the 360 degree-view system are enhanced to enable a better view of the bed, and the rear or sides of a trailer. Entry-level Silverado models have just two speakers, but most are fitted with a six-speaker system or optional seven-speaker Bose premium setup.”
  • Car and Driver: “The Silverado can also be equipped with an array of trailer-assist technologies and several handy features, such as a multi-function tailgate and a camera display in the rearview mirror that gives an unobstructed view of what’s behind you.”
