In Lieu Of A September State Fair, Chevy Is Still Launching A Revised Version Of The Lone Star Package

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 RST Texas Edition Plus

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 won’t bring about many major updates, as previously expected. We can thank the COVID-19 disruption for that. Rest assured, the Silverado is still getting an improved interior soon, consisting of technology borrowed from the all-new 2021 Tahoe and Suburban. At any rate, there are still some small updates to report on regarding the 2021 Silverado 1500, and one of them is the new Texas Edition Plus package.

Available on the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado LT and RST models, the new Texas Edition Plus package is an ever-so-mild upgrade on the currently available standard Texas Edition. This deep south celebrating Chevy will be available exclusively at dealers located in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and of course, Texas. This package, along with other mild updates for the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, would have likely debuted at the 2020 State Fair of Texas originally scheduled in September. But as we’ve already reported, the major event has been canceled.

Per the official dealer order guide, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Texas Edition Plus consists of the Convenience Package II, 20-inch aluminum wheels with Argent metallic pockets, and unique Texas Edition badging.

Regarding the Convenience Package II, here’s what customers get (RPO codes are in parenthesis):

(UG1) Universal Home Remote
(A48) rear sliding power window
(KI4) 120-volt power outlet
(KC9) 120-volt bed mounted power outlet
(IOS) Chevrolet Infotainment System with 8″ diagonal color touch-screen
(MCR) USB ports, SiriusXM with 360L
(U2L) HD radio
(UVB) HD Rear Vision Camera

In summary, the 2021 Silverado 1500 Texas Edition Plus package consists of some par-for-course technology, some wheels, and Lone Star State badges. There are no performance or off-road improvements to be found here.

The Texas Edition Plus package on the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 replaces the Texas Edition found on the 2019 and 2020 model year Silverado. Chevrolet also configured a separate Texas Edition package for the LTZ model. While Chevrolet hasn’t announced pricing yet on the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, we expect the Texas Edition Plus package to run around $2,815 – which is the price of the current Texas Edition package on the Silverado LT.

Chevrolet will launch several special edition variants of the Silverado this year. Besides the Texas Edition, there will also be the Carhartt Edition, as well as the Silverado Realtree Edition.

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.
