Despite its new association with the world’s leading camouflage brand, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Edition promises to be anything but invisible in an off-road capability.
The limited-run pickup combines the capabilities of the Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss with exclusive exterior graphics from Realtree, providing a stylishi means to get out into the wilderness. Power is supplied by either the 5.3-litre V-8 engine, with a 6-speed automatic transmission, or the 6.2-litre V-8 with a 10-speed automatic.
“Silverado continues to offer customers more choice and capability where it counts,” said Bob Krapes, director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing. “Building on the popular Custom Trail Boss model, the new Realtree Edition offers hunting and fishing enthusiasts a truck perfectly matched to their passions.”
The exterior treatment includes black Silverado and Z71 badges, black dual exhaust tips, black tubular side steps, and all-weather floor liners.
“Having worked closely with Chevrolet all these years, it’s great to see the team come out with the new 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition using our latest Timber pattern,” said Realtree designer and president, Bill Jordan. “You don’t realize how much goes into building a true performance truck until you look behind the scenes, and this new truck will mean so much to all outdoor enthusiasts.”
As with other Trail Boss models, the Realtree Edition will come with the 2-inch suspension lift, 20-inch black wheels shod with Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT On-Off Road Tires, and the Z71 Off-Road Package, which includes monotube Rancho shocks, Hill Descent Control, automatic locking rear differential, AutoTrac 2-speed transfer case and skid plates to keep everything protected.
Realtree also has a hand in the interior door trim, and the package-included bedliner, over the Durabed, with its high-strength, roll formed steel bed floor and 12 tie-downs.
This is the second collaboration between Chevrolet and Realtree, with the two collaborating on the 2016 Silverado Realtree Edition.
The 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition will be available in limited quantities starting in summer 2020, with pricing announced closer to launch date.
