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.
