GM to Debut All-New Off-Road Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Chevy Silverado ZR2

General Motors (GM) is getting ready to show off its latest pickup, the all-new off-road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2. This release comes in the midst of a global transition to electric vehicles. Most automakers have been aiming to produce their own version of an electric vehicle. GM has been teasing the all-electric Chevy Silverado and rumors have been spreading about a potential electric Camaro. With the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, GM is hoping to ramp up excitement and anticipation for its future lineup. The debut of a fully electric pickup has garnered the most interest, but GM has been sure to keep any information under wraps. For now, the automaker is providing updates and adding new features to its current lineup. Until more information is released about other vehicles, we’ll have to stick to pure speculation. The automaker has released details about the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 however, so we’ll dive into the new updates.

All-New Off-Road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

GM unveiled the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 ahead of the NFL’S first game of the season between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. GM has enjoyed a lot of interest recently for its Silverado lineup, but this move to reach the greatest number of eyes was solid. According to the director of Chevrolet marketing Kelly MacDonald, about 60% of Silverado sales have been off-road-focused pickups. With so much interest in off-road capable pickups, it’s no wonder GM is updating its lineup. 

The all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be getting a new exterior design and several new features and technologies. GM will update the pickup’s exterior with slimmer headlights and a refreshed grille. These will help display the brand’s logo more prominently. The new designs are similar to those of the updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, both of which share the same platform as the Silverado. Inside the Chevy Silverado ZR2, consumers will note more technologies such as an e-shifter. A larger infotainment screen and heads-up display will also accompany the new pickup.

The last addition to the all-new Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be safety and driver-assist features. These will consist of lane-keep assist, lane departure alerts, forward collision alerts, and automatic emergency braking. GM will also be including its new Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system. This new system will use sensors, radars, and cameras to help drivers better navigate the road. Pricing for the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 has not been determined yet, however, the starting price for the Silverado lineup ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new pickup will most likely fall between these prices. Off-road pickups offer the function of a pickup with the versatility of an off-roader. GM is providing consumers with the best of both worlds. Consumers will be happy to see GM expanding and updating its lineup.

All-New All-Electric Chevy Silverado to Feature Rear-Axle Steering

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

Chevrolet has been making headlines with its plans to compete with automakers like Ford and Tesla. The automaker has released some pretty tough vehicles like the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, for example. Now, the automaker is aiming its sights on a new electric pickup, the all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado. Chevrolet has said the new electric pickup is set to enter production in early 2023. That doesn’t mean the automaker can’t tease consumers with hints and rumors about its specifications. The latest of these come directly from Chevrolet as it announced that the fully electric Chevy Silverado will feature optional rear-axle steering. Additionally, Chevrolet stated that the new electric pickup will have up to 400 miles of range. We’ll have to wait for more information about the pickup, but from what Chevrolet stated, we can speculate about the electric Silverado and what Chevy plans to do with it.

Rear-Axle Steering for the Chevy Silverado

The all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado will come available with optional rear-axle steering. This inclusion will tighten the pickup’s turning radius by allowing the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels. This feature is similar to the one seen with the electric GMC Hummer, however, it isn’t likely that the new electric Silverado will have the same functionality. The GMC Hummer EV features a crab walk of sorts where it uses all four wheels to move freely, even diagonally. The electric Chevy Silverado will utilize the rear-axle steering to increase its maneuverability, but consumers shouldn’t expect such function and mobility as shown with the EV Hummer.  

The fully electric Chevy Silverado will utilize General Motors’ Ultium battery platform. GM plans to use this platform for its future electric vehicles. For the electric Silverado, multiple powertrain configurations and battery pack sizes will be available. Chevrolet stated that the new electric pickup will have up to 400 miles of range. This battery platform will help ensure that. Chevrolet has also stated that the new pickup will come available in several work-oriented trims. More highly equipped trims will also be available. The last note Chevyrolet shared is that the Chevy Silverado will feature optional 24-inch wheels. Production of the all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado is set for 2023. We will have to wait for more teasers and information, but from what we’ve seen, the electric pickup is looking to cause an upset among the competition.

Revamped 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Debut Soon

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is getting a new look. The newly revamped full-size pickup will be unveiled on September 9th, 2021. Production of the pickup will begin later in 2021 on September 20th and September 27th. For now, Chevy fans can get a closer look at some of the new features being offered.

What’s New for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500?

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be getting several improvements to its interior and exterior. The full-sized pickup will also be getting a new architecture platform that will provide new technology features. Inside the refreshed 2022 Silverado, drivers will find an overhauled cabin with a new dash, center stack, and center console. A large infotainment screen and a digital gauge cluster also come equipped inside the pickup. Another change being made will be to the traditional column gear shifter. It will be getting replaced with a new electronic gear select system.

Looking at the exterior of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, several minor changes can be seen. One change is a revision to the front fascia. Additional changes to the full-sized pickup include new headlamps, a redesigned tailgate, and different taillights. These will give the new pickup a distinct look that sets it apart from previous iterations.

New Global B Architecture System

One of the most drastic changes to the new 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is that it will be migrating to GM’s new Global B electrical architecture system. This new architecture will enable over-the-air updates, a feature many automakers are introducing. This new over-the-air update system will allow GM to offer consumers the latest technology features. One of these features is GM’s hands-free Super Cruise drive system which provides drivers with a level 2 autonomous system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, levels of autonomous technology range from 1-5. Since GM’s driver-assist system is a level 2, this means that it will offer semi-autonomous driver assistance. Drivers will be able to remove their hands from the steering wheel during extended periods of driving, but they should still remain alert and engaged to the road. 

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also come alongside a new trim, the Silverado ZR2. This trim will feature an upgraded suspension, knobby tires, and underbody skid plates for better off-road performance. The full-sized pickup will debut on September 9th, 2021, but reservations have been made available already. Production of the pickup will begin on September 20th, 2021 at the GM Silao plant in Mexico as well as at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana on September 27th, 2021. A price hasn’t yet been determined for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, but estimates put the pickup between a range of $29,000-$35,000 MSRP (plus destination fee).

The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 May Get Off-Roading Features

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a mean and aggressive pickup that earns its props for its off-road capabilities. The midsize pickup’s spool valve shocks are serious executors of their job, while the underside is geared up to be able to tackle more difficult situations and increase function. The high-quality Colorado model is just what the doctor ordered on a nice off-roading day, and the optional turbodiesel engine isn’t too shabby either. Now it appears that the automaker wants to implement this work of genius on its full-size 2022 Silverado, which would move a step above the Trail Boss trim in the lineup.

It’s questionable whether this upcoming Silverado ZR2 will increase in its strength, but decrease in its speed, or perhaps get the best of both worlds. For the moment, we’ll have to wait until the automaker releases the engine specs, especially because it’s certain that it will have particular features that will be unlike many pick-ups on the market, if not all of them.

One thing that should be expected is that the shock absorbers of the Colorado’s Multimatic-acquired Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve play a key role, as they make way for highly accurate damping control, better cooling, and increased travel. In the Colorado, there is an extra spool valve that is only involved during very large suspension movements. Altogether, the dampers perform better over a vast range of conditions rather than a conventional shock, and that’s whether it’s on or off-road.

Elements that make the Colorado ZR2 stand out are the elevated lift, augmented armor, rock sliders, and re-shaped bumpers to boost angles for approach and departure. There is also a toughened fully-boxed frame, along with its standard front and rear locking differentials. It’s certain that the Silverado ZR2 will have a better lift in contrast to the Trail Boss, brawnier skid plates, and similar number treatment as its miniature family member. The extra frame support may or may not be needed. Judging from Chevrolet’s teaser video, it seems that Silverado ZR2 will keep its rear leaf spring setup, like the Colorado, opposed to employing the arrangement of the F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX.

As for the engine components of the Silverado ZR2, more than likely the regular L87 6.2-liter V-8 that produces a healthy 420 hp and 460 lb-ft will be used, and will still be a worthy competitor against the Ram Rebel’s 5.7-liter.

One should know that the Colorado ZR2 also offers a Duramax turbo diesel option, and if the automaker wants, it can also offer the Silverado ZR2 with that powertrain’s larger sibling: the highly effective Duramax I-6 turbodiesel. Though it only produces 277 horsepower it makes up for it with 460 lb-ft of torque, and also has excellent fuel economy figures.

We should know more about what Chevrolet has in store for its truck enthusiasts by this fall but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall is selling vehicles in various shapes and sizes from the automaker such as the Silverado and the Colorado trucks. Those who are interested in any of our vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

GM’s CEO Raves About The Upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV

Monday, May 10th, 2021

 

GM’s CEO Comments On The Upcoming EV Silverado

General Motors recently conducted a Q1 financial report with investors, during which a Deutsche Bank analyst had specific questions regarding the brand’s Silverado EV. This prompted CEO Mary Barra to briefly give some insights about its highly anticipated truck.

“And again, we have incredible know-how in this company and how to do full-sized trucks and we’re taking that into an EV-propelled vehicle, and that I think is going to give us a winning formula. I’m excited to share that vehicle with everyone because it’s just stunning,” Barra commented.

Barra also added that GM expects to have a strong demand for its upcoming electric Silverado. She thinks that the Utilium platform could aid the company in obtaining leadership in the market.

Last month, Chevrolet confirmed rumors regarding the Silverado EV, as they plan on constructing the model apace with the GMC Hummer EV at the company’s Detroit-Hamtramck Factory Zero facility. Both trucks will reside on the Ultium platform, and the aim is for the green Silverado to have a range of about 400 miles or 644 kilometers.

“The vehicles coming from Factory Zero will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles,” said GM President Mark Reuss when announcing the Silverado EV. “The GMC Hummer EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”

At the current moment, there is no word as to the arrival date of the electrified Silverado. However, seeing how it proceeds on a different platform than the gasoline model, it leaves room for significant styling changes between the two trucks.

Furthermore, GM is investing $2.2 billion into the Detroit-Hamtramck facility to develop the site into a major center for the company’s electric vehicle production.

More Fun Facts

  • Chevrolet’s first full-size electric truck won’t just be for public consumption, as both retail and fleet versions will be made available.
  • GM claims that you won’t have to worry about spending so much time charging and for only a few miles, as it’s expected for the upcoming Silverado to deliver 400 miles on a full charge.
  • As previously stated, America’s powerhouse automaker is embracing the “Made In The U.S.A” slogan by building the EV truck at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant, previously known as the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. This is the company’s first EV-only assembly plant, and not only will it produce the Silverado and the Hummer, but also the Cruise Origin, which is an upcoming self-driving vehicle.

Chevrolet Proves That Its Design For Its Silverado 1500 Has True Buying Power

Wednesday, May 5th, 2021

The fourth-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has reached its third year of stealing the hearts of pickup lovers everywhere. When this light-duty truck made its debut in 2019, it was praised by many for its design, which significantly contrasts with that of its third-generation model. Even though there have been some critics pointing out what they see as flaws in the styling, with some even using the term “sideburns” to describe the reason for their disdain. However, these sideburns have actually helped to increase sales rather than thwart them.

In a recent interview with car site, GM Authority, Bob Krapes, Director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing said “Research has shown that the number one reason to buy [the Silverado 1500] is design.” 

In actuality, the design of the Silverado is the main reason why the pickup is presently the best-selling vehicle in its segment amid buyers with ages ranging from 18 to 34 in North America, as reported in January by GM Authority. While the styling may not be everyone’s preferred taste, it’s doing what it needs to in order to entice customers.

Krapes continued to say that the design has also allowed the Silverado to become the best-selling pickup truck amid Hispanic buyers in the States.

Also encompassing variants like Heavy Duty and Medium Duty pickups, the Silverado is the automaker’s top-selling model by a sizable margin. To put into perspective, 594,094 units of the Chevy truck were purchased in the States during the 2020 calendar year. That signifies 34 percent of the Chevrolet sales and 23 percent of total sales of GM. In truth, the Silverado and its corporate counterpart, the GMC Sierra, together outsold the highly-favored Ford F-Series by almost 60,000 units during that year. While one could argue that this achievement could be due to the F-Series making its way into its 14th generation during the very end of 2020, it still doesn’t take away from its win.

Unfortunately, Q1 of 2021 saw a dip in Silverado sales, surely due to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the worldwide semiconductor shortage. Yet and still, at 126,591 units for the first three months of the year, the pickup still made up for 30 percent of Chevrolet sales and 20 percent of GM sales in North America during that period. These numbers also indicate that if Silverado styling was largely unfavorable, it would have not seen much success.

At this current moment, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is available with the option of four body configurations, thusly:

  • Regular Cab, Long Bed
  • Double Cab, Standard Bed
  • Crew Cab, Short Bed
  • Crew Cab, Standard Bed

A Regular Cab, Short Regular Bed Silverado is constructed in the States but is only sold in the Middle East. However, GM Authority recently reported that there is still a possibility for these configurations making their way to the U.S. and Canada.

The automaker has also announced in early April that an electric Chevrolet Silverado will be constructed at the GM Factory Zero plant (previously known as GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant) along with the nearing GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV.

The 2021 Chevrolet SUV Lineup: Everything To Expect For The New Year

Monday, December 21st, 2020

 

Chevrolet is offering a package deal when it comes to its compact crossover, full-size SUVs, and utility vehicles for its 2021 model year. New features to expect are pretty minor but also significant, like with special editions and fresh colors, including updates to the engine and trim levels. At the same time, the Tahoe and Suburban will get a complete makeover. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 Chevrolet SUV lineup!

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Now more than ever, subcompact crossovers are becoming all the rage for SUV lovers, and Chevrolet doesn’t disappoint the growing demand for one. The new 2021 Trailblazer is the brand’s entry-level SUV and has a front face that resembles a bit like its sporty cousin, the Camaro. The price seems pretty reasonable at just under $20,000, (plus the destination fee). Two engine choices that are offered include a 1.2-liter engine with 137 horsepower or a 1.3-liter engine with 155 horsepower.

2021 Chevrolet Trax

Chevrolet has another subcompact crossover that’s even smaller than the Trailblazer, which is the 2021 Trax. This model may a bit short but not in its features. The car comes with two new special editions available on the LT trim. The Sport Edition is decked out in black exterior accents, whilst the Midnight Edition fuses black accents with a Mosaic Black Metallic paint color. This car will be a breeze to park and will allow its passengers to take advantage of its storage space by its generous amount of cubbies.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is a compact sports utility model with a refreshed design for 2021. However, the company revealed that the SUV will really be a 2022 model since the plans for their changes have been pushed back. What you need to know is that the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine has been removed, and for now it’s being replaced by the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. One shouldn’t fret too much about this, as the 1.5-liter is expected to make a comeback when the new Equinox comes out.

This almost-2021 vehicle will now have an available leather package on the LT trim, which includes black perforated leather-appointed seats, memory settings, an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, and outside heated power-adjustable mirrors with auto-dimming.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer

The color palette on the 2021 Blazer is getting a bit of a switch-up, as colors like Pewter Metallic, Iron Gray Metallic, Cayenne Orange Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat are tagging along.

The brand’s Safety Assist package gift wraps automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and auto high-beams. These goodies come standard on the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trims.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse

The full-size Chevrolet Traverse is also getting a facelift for 2022 and only minute changes for 2021. Chevrolet’s Safety Assist will outplace the Driver Conference II package and will be standard on the RS, Premier, and High Country. It will also be available on LT.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

The restyled Tahoe not only joins a new platform but is also winning with an independent rear suspension and a better ride quality. This SUV is 6.7 inches longer than before and also has increased in its wheelbase.  Third-row passengers now have 40 percent more legroom and 66 percent more cargo volume. Front-seat passengers will also enjoy the 10.2-inch touchscreen.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban

The big and bad Suburban will share the same features as the Tahoe, as well as technologies, but one thing that makes it stand out is that the improvement in the interior space. The Suburban provides more legroom and cargo volume than its predecessor, specifically in the second-and third-row.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

At long last, Chevrolet is bringing on an electric crossover to their lineup. The production of the Bolt EUV will start in 2021, and based on the photos we’ve seen so far, it’s even more impressive than the current Bolt hatchback, with its increase in size and posher design. This car will also have a dashboard design that is more user-friend, as well as a new touchscreen and enhanced interior materials. The brand’s Super Cruise will also prove to be an asset to drivers once they get on the highway.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time finally comes to purchase any one of these Chevrolet SUVs, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall! We sell a wide range of crossovers, subcompacts, and full-sized trucks from the brand and at various prices. Those who are interested in any of these vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

The 2021 Ford Ranger and 2021 Chevrolet Colorado Have An Off-Roading Face-Off

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020

 

The 2021 Ford Ranger and the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado are two rivals that just can’t quit each other in their mid-sized truck segment, but that’s what makes it so much fun! This time around, it’s a very tight race against the top-spot as they are both very efficient with their towing abilities and customizations. However, one of these brands has a little extra something that the other just can’t compete with, keep reading to find out!

2021 Ford Ranger

The 2021 Ford Ranger is re-introduced for the midsize truck segment with moves that are quite versatile and adaptable in a way that can quickly erase the memory of the previous model. It’s energized by a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that makes up to 270 horsepower with 310 lb-ft of torque and is paired to a 10-speed automatic transition. This powertrain is the only one that is offered by the two available cabbies, but this doesn’t mean that the powertrain isn’t adept in its abilities. For those who are more focused on carting passengers than actual gear, it’s recommended to opt for the SuperCrew rather than the two close for comfort SuperCab.  The inventive Blind Spot Monitoring has been augmented for towing, and it does this by having the system pay special attention to whatever the truck is hauling. Another exciting option is the Bang & Olufsen 10-speaker Audio System. Available on all models is the brand’s Co-Pilot360 safety suite, though standard on the XLT and Lariat trucks.

2021 Chevrolet Colorado

From the outside looking in, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is obviously a truck, but once the driver and their passengers step inside of the vehicle, it will be easy to mistake it for a comfort-focused SUV. The reason for this is because this Chevy truck doesn’t have that overly-energetic bounce that many vehicles in this segment have and it’s also great with steering. Though Colorado provides comfort in its cabin, it certainly doesn’t get too comfortable in pushing out high-ranking performance. Buyers of mid-sized pickups have the unique ability to opt for a diesel powertrain, with the automaker’s 2.8-liter Duramax incredibly skilled with towing and excellent with its mileage. It’s 2.0-liter inline-4 and a 3.6-liter V6 also has 2- and 4-wheel-drive drive systems. Off-road enthusiasts can make use of the Z71 and ZR2 trim levels owing to their rough and tough terrain capabilities. Additionally, the truck has off-roading accessories like a raised suspension, wider track, revamped bumpers, and a serviceable skid plate, that allows for an incredible adventure of a lifetime.

Similarities and Differences

The Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado are comparable with their tough body-frame, varied selection of cabbies and beds, and near-identical towing capacities. With this in mind, one really has to squint to really differentiate one truck from the other, but the 2021 Ranger outranks its rival with its advanced features, fuel economy, as well as the New Tremor package which enhances the truck’s off-road abilities. On the other hand, the 2021 Colorado has the unique advantage of having a diesel option, top-ranking towing, and a noteworthy amount of possible customizations. With the Ranger unable to compete well enough against the Colorado’s diesel, it’s for this reason why it takes the modest but respectable second place trophy in our rankings.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Now that you know which off-roader truly takes the cake, why not make the final purchase at Miami Lakes Automall? Our dealership carries a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles, including the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. Those who are interested in this model or any of our vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

Chevrolet Silverado Introduces New Technology For 2021 Model Year

Friday, September 25th, 2020
Chevy Miami Lakes Automall

Owners will have more versatility than ever before using the configurable tailgate can be lowered down in three different places. With the quick hit on the key fob or on the tailgate buttons, the truck bed drops down like a regular tailgate, with another push the bed can have a cutout in the middle, or retract, as well as expand the bed length to serve as a bed stop. The configuration allows for the entire midsection to be lowered down. There’s a setup that allows two-step access over the bed. 

A new crop of pickups has added some functionality to the truck bed, but not quite like the Chevrolet Silverado provides. For instance, the 2021 Ram 1500 will offer a split tailgate, however, there are half as many customizable options. The 2021 Ford F-150 will provide an available tailgate (that costs extra) and it also doesn’t have as many configurations as well.  

Enjoy the 2021 Silverado Pickup 

The 2021 Silverado has received some strength in its towing capacity even with the smaller engines. The 2.7-Liter turbo-4 in rear-wheel drive raises its tow rating 2,500 pounds to 9,300 pounds with the crew cab and the short 5-foot-8 bed. A regular cab with a long bed has a towing capacity of 9,600 pounds. The cooling performance surpassed expectations, allowing it to tow more, Chevy has claimed. The 3.0-Liter turbodiesel inline-6 now has gained a boost in towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds in rear-wheel-drive models. The towing increase comes from a rear axle that was more durable than expected, Chevy explained. 

Like the 3.0-Liter turbodiesel in the 2021 Sierra, the 2021 Silverado turbo diesel is going to see a lower price of about $1,500 less than the previous year. Chevrolet touts its diesel engine as the most fuel-efficient engine with an estimated maximum highway range of 668 miles with best-in-class 23 city mpg and 33 highway mpg for all 2WD models. The 3.0-Liter inline-six powertrain gives owners 460 lb-ft of torque with 277 horsepower. 

Upgraded Technology Is Very Apparent 

To make life easier on those owners who will use the advanced trailering technology, an available feature provides a camera system that can display vehicles in the blind spots of the trailer. Owners can trigger a jack-knife alert as well. The camera system has an option that displays guidelines and open visibility when reversing a trailer into place. A cargo bed zoom helps owners ease onto a gooseneck hitch or fifth-wheel hitch. Driver assistance features can be added to base trims, and other features are available. 

The standard perks of the 2021 Silverado 1500 include wireless smartphone connectivity come for all mid-grade trims and above. The 2021 Silverado goes on sale this fall. There are also features that are offered for midrange trims that extend the luxurious features that come standard for the higher trims. Some of those features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The future of Silverado will gain more features for the 2022 model year, but there are many days ahead before that one comes.
