Chevy Silverado Realtree Edition Debuts At Shot Show
Chevrolet and Realtree recently uncovered their newest outdoor truck collaboration: the 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition. The truck made its appearance at the Shot Show in Las Vegas, the annual hunting and shooting industry mega show.
Realtree and Chevrolet, through the John Megel Chevrolet dealership in Georgia, have been 30-year sponsors of GON’s Truck-Buck Shoot-Out, allowing Georgia deer hunters to take part in a one-of-kind big-buck contest with more than $70,000 in annual prizes.
The limited-run 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition truck brings together the rugged capability of Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss with exclusive graphics from Realtree, the world’s leading camouflage brand. This is the second collaboration between the two brands, following the success of the 2016 Silverado Realtree Edition.
“Silverado continues to offer customers more choice and capability where it counts,” said Bob Krapes, director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing. “Building on the popular Custom Trail Boss model, the new Realtree Edition offers hunting and fishing enthusiasts a truck perfectly matched to their passions.”
Like all Trail Boss models, 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 and the Silverado’s Z71 Off-Road Package, which includes monotube Rancho® shocks, Hill Descent Control, automatic locking rear differential, skid plates and an AutoTrac® 2-speed transfer case. The Realtree Edition also includes the 5.3L V8 engine with a 6-speed transmission and is available with the 6.2L V8 that will provide an SAE-certified 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Realtree camouflage graphics are featured on the exclusive exterior, as well as the interior door trim, while the Realtree logo is integrated on the standard bedliner. These outdoor-ready touches are accompanied by black Silverado and Z71 badging, black rectangular dual-exhaust tips, 4-inch black round assist steps and all-weather floor liners. The truck is also equipped with Silverado’s Durabed, which offers the most standard cargo capacity in the segment, 12 standard tie-downs and a high-strength, roll-formed steel bed floor.
“Having worked closely with Chevrolet all these years, it’s great to see the team come out with the new 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition using our latest Timber pattern,” said Realtree designer and president, Bill Jordan. “You don’t realize how much goes into building a true performance truck until you look behind the scenes, and this new truck will mean so much to all outdoor enthusiasts.”
The 2021 Silverado Realtree Edition will be on display at the 2020 SHOT Show and available for sale at Chevrolet dealerships in summer 2020. Pricing will be announced closer to production.
