Detroit-based Chevrolet and outdoor retailer Realtree have unveiled their latest collaboration: the 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition, featuring exclusive camouflage graphics. It will be available at dealerships this summer. A price has not yet been determined.
This is the second collaboration between the two brands, following the 2016 Silverado Realtree Edition. Like that version, the 2021 model is based on the Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss.
“Silverado continues to offer customers more choice and capability where it counts,” says Bob Krapes, director of truck marketing for Chevrolet. “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. That off-road gear includes monotube Rancho shocks, hill descent control, automatic locking rear differential, skid plates, and an AutoTrac two-speed transfer case.
The Realtree Silverado also includes the 5.3-liter V-8 engine with a six-speed transmission and is available with the 6.2-liter V-8 that will provide an SAE-certified 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Realtree camouflage graphics are featured on the exterior, as well as the interior door trim. The Realtree logo is integrated on the standard bedliner, 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 also is equipped with Silverado’s Durabed (which Chevrolet says 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,” says Bill Jordan, designer and president of Realtree. “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.”
