Hunting Skills Not Included

2021 Chevrolet Silverado

Normally, if an automaker is trying to hide or obfuscate a future product that it’s testing, that vehicle is draped in layers of black cladding, disorienting black and white tape, and is otherwise covered in special camouflage. In the case of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Edition, however, this pickup truck wears a different kind of camo.

As you can see from the official photos, the limited-run Silverado Realtree Edition once again blends together the popular Chevrolet truck with a leading sportsman apparel company aimed squarely at the hunting community. The Bowtie Brand unveiled the latest Silverado special edition at the 2020 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. It’s set to launch in summer of 2020, with pricing to be announced closer to that timeframe.

This is also the second collaboration between the two brands, following the success of the 2016 Silverado Realtree Edition.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado

Based on the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Trailboss, 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, monotube Rancho shocks, Hill Descent Control, automatic locking rear differential, skid plates and an AutoTrac 2-speed transfer case. The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Edition also includes the 5.3L V-8 engine with a 6-speed transmission and is available with the 6.2L V-8 that will provide an SAE-certified 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, which is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Realtree camouflage graphics are featured throughout the truck, while the Realtree logo is integrated on the standard bedliner. From there we see unique blacked-out Silverado and Z71 badging, black rectangular dual-exhaust tips, 4-inch black round assist steps, plus all-weather floor liners. The truck is also equipped with the most standard cargo capacity in the segment with its high-walled truck bed, 12 standard tie-downs, and a roll-formed steel bed floor.

The new Realtree Edition joins a growing family of Silverado appearance packages, which includes the upcoming Silverado HD Carhartt Edition. Which one would you rather have?

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
