It is undeniable that the United States loves pickup trucks. There’s no arguing about that. Proof of that is the Ford F-150 has the highest sales in the US market. Its lead over other car models and makes are pretty significant.
Of course, GM will not stand idly by and watch its competitors seize the market. It has re-innovated the Chevrolet Silverado HD 2021, but that does come with an increased cost. Luckily, the increase is not that steep. Furthermore, the extra dough you are going to pay will be a worthy one. After all, this monster has a tow rating of 36,000 pounds, which cements its rapport as a total workhorse.
The base trim, the Silverado HD WT (Worker Truck), got a $300 increase. The base MSRP for the 6.6-liter V8 4×2 Regular Cab starts at $34,900. This amount doesn’t include the destination charge. Meanwhile, the LT and Custom trims are now $500 more; its starting price is $39,000 and $39,7000 for the 4×2 Regular Cab and 4×2 Double Cab, respectively.
Meanwhile, the LTZ has a moderate increase. Its price went up by $200 for the 2021 model year (now $49,000). Keep in mind that the LTZ is not compatible with the Regular Cab body. It only suits the 2WD Double Cab guise.
Going higher on the ladder, we see the High Country trim has a substantial increase of $800. This trim only comes with the Crew Cab configuration and 4×4 Silverado HD models. Its starting price is at $62,400, and that comes with the 6.6-liter V8 engine and a standard bed.
Aside from the price increases of Silverado HD models, the destination charge has increased by $100. It now sits at $1,695. Keep in mind that these prices are just for the base gasoline V8 engine. If you are looking for the 6.6-liter Duramax V8, it will cost you an additional $10,165.
Fortunately, the power performance and technology of the Silverado makes all these price hikes worth it!
