2021 Silverado Realtree Edition on Display at 2020 SHOT Show
Chevrolet and Realtree revealed their latest collaboration – the 2021 Silverado 1500 Realtree Edition at the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas last week.
The limited-run truck features the rugged capability of the Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss and the exclusive graphics of Realtree, the world’s leading camouflage brand. The second collaboration between the two brands, it follows the success of the 2016 Silverado Realtree Edition.
“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.”
Like all Trail Boss models, the Realtree Edition will be equipped with a 2-inch factory suspension lift, 20-inch black wheels with Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT On-Off Road Tires and the Silverado’s Z71 Off-Road Package. The Z71 package features monotube Rancho shocks, Hill Descent Control, automatic locking rear differential, skid plates and an AutoTrac 2-speed transfer case.
The Realtree Edition standard power plant is the 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 engine (355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque) mated to a 6-speed transmission. Also available will be the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 that delivers 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque – paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Realtree camouflage graphics are featured on the exclusive exterior, as well as the interior door trim, while the Realtree logo is integrated on the standard bedliner.
These outdoor-ready touches are accompanied by black Silverado and Z71 badging, black rectangular dual-exhaust tips, 4-inch black round assist steps and all-weather floor liners.
The truck is also equipped with Silverado’s Durabed, which offers the most standard cargo capacity in the segment, 12 standard tie-downs and a high-strength, roll-formed steel bed floor.
“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.”
The 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition will be available for sale at Chevrolet dealerships in summer 2020. Pricing will be announced closer to production.
