The Engine You Didnt Know You Wanted – 2021 Chevrolet Silverado RST Crew Cab 4WD Review

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado RST Crew Cab 4WD is a great truck, but possibly for a feature you didn’t expect. M.S.R.P. – $55,490.

Large pickups are wonderful for hauling and towing stuff and in general imposing their size on everyone and everything around them but if you want to average well over 20 miles per gallon forget about it well unless it’s one of these i’m chris from auto academics and today we’re going to take a look at a 2021 chevrolet silverado rst crew cab with four wheel drive

Filling literally every inch of the garage this week is this 2021 north sky blue metallic chevrolet silverado rst crew cab with four wheel drive standard features include led reflector headlamps led fog lamps led signature daytime running lights and led signature tail lamps body color styling theme corner step rear bumper cargo bed rail protectors tie downs and

The bed protection package provides the chevy tech spray-on bed liner with rear wheel house liners finish things off with a convenience package with bucket seats and trailer brake controller and you get a total msrp of 55 490 in my opinion this rst trim offers just enough equipment and flare without going overboard we see those comments about these trucks being

Too fancy maybe this is better the crew cab is available in both short and standard bed sizes and our tester has a shorter 5 foot 7 inch length a new multiflex tailgate is available but this truck has the lockable standard one with only the corner steps and no handrail climbing in and out can be a bit challenging but its operation is smooth and the tailgate is

Surprisingly balanced and easy to close providing power is the duramax 3 liter turbo diesel inline 6 that makes 277 horsepower and an impressive 460 pound-feet of torque which is the same torque rating as the 6.2 liter v8 a high dramatic 10-speed automatic transmission handles the gears and there’s an auto locking rear differential this particular truck has

A single speed transfer case and you can choose between two wheel drive auto four high and then there’s a terrain mode that replaces the more hardcore four low maximum payload is between pounds and 2 170 pounds depending upon where you look and the max tow rating is 9 000 pounds epa estimated fuel economy is rated at 22 miles per gallon city 26 miles per gallon

Highway with a combined rating of 24 miles per gallon auto academics saw an average of 23.9 miles per gallon during testing on diesel fuel the back seat is status quo for a full-size pickup with ac vents usb ports and of course plenty of room there’s also storage in the seat backs the floor is flat and the seats fold up for bulkier items that need to stay dry

Up front while looking very utilitarian the cockpit is very functional too the inserts help to break up the dark and expansive hard plastic and i like the rubbery feel of the knobs these seats feel nice there’s plenty of storage and the layout of all the controls works so now that we’ve addressed all of that it’s time to take it out and see how it drives i’ve

Got to say i’m rather impressed by this six-cylinder diesel it drives really well there’s plenty of torque down low yet it doesn’t make a lot of noise while doing it no it doesn’t tow quite as much as the big gas engines but fuel economy is great for something of this size i’m averaging 24 miles to the gallon my wife’s q7 doesn’t do this well to put things in

Perspective that 2500 sierra i reviewed only got 14. yeah it could tow a house but how often do you do that plus the couple of family members who rode in this didn’t even realize it’s a diesel it’s quiet there’s no smoke and only the occasional diesel smell yet decent power can be had with just the press of the accelerator the suspension is slightly softer than

That 2500 i reviewed so you get a little more squish from your inputs the brakes feel good and i have no issue with the 10-speed auto either overall this package is a nice blend of what you need and what you don’t and this little diesel engine well that might go in your wants category so there you have it guys the 2021 chevrolet silverado rst crew cab with
