Chevrolet's new sinister appearance package is available for the Silverado Custom and RST trims.
There is no shortage of special edition packages available for the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado to help your truck stand out, including the stylish Midnight Edition and Rally Edition. And now a new Blackout Package is available to order for the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 that gives the popular full-size truck a sinister new look.
Available for the Custom and RST trims, the appearance package adds black Silverado nameplates, black RST, 6.2L, and Duramax badges, and a black bow tie emblem. The Chevrolet lettering on the tailgate also gets the black treatment. Unique 20-inch five-split spoke high gloss black wheels with black caps and a black bow tie with a silver outline are available for the Custom trim, while the RST trim gets 20-inch painted aluminum wheels.
Chevrolet also offers a similar Dark Essentials Package that includes the same styling enhancements as the Blackout appearance package. The only difference is that the Blackout adds 20-inch split five-spoke high gloss black wheels or 20-inch painted aluminum wheels depending on the trim level.
No pricing details have been revealed for the Blackout Package yet, but it will likely cost more than the Dark Essentials Package (which costs $305) since it includes optional wheels. The 20-inch painted aluminum wheels for the RST cost $800, so we're expecting the Blackout Package to cost over $1,000.
However, you won't be able to add the Blackout Package to the special-edition Rally Edition available for the Custom trim or the Rallye Edition or Redline Edition available for the RST.
While the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado doesn't offer any major changes over last year's model, the full-size truck will get a comprehensive update for the 2022 model year, with refreshed front and rear fasciae, new exterior colors, and a redesigned interior with a new dashboard and an optional digital instrument cluster. Production of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado is expected to start in September, so the official reveal can't be too far away.
