You can get up to $1,750 off.
The current discount depends on trim level, body style, and engine selection. The largest discount is limited to the 2021 6.6-liter Duramax turbocharged diesel Custom models, which receive a $750 discount. This includes a $250 package discount for certain qualifying models. If you want the power but can't quite reach Custom prices, fear not. At the beginning of the year, Chevrolet announced that the 6.6-liter turbocharged diesel and its maximum towing capacity of 18,500 pounds would be available on every trim.
The rest of the 2021 range gets a $500 cash allowance, which buyers can subtract from the MSRP or spend on accessories. In addition, a $1,000 accessory subsidy can be spent on accessories equal to or more than $1,000.
This is quite a nifty marketing strategy because you can get many Chevy accessories for a grand. You can either go for a hard folding and lockable tonneau cover or a selection of items ranging from $50.
All 2022 models get a $500 cash allowance. You can use it as you please or do what most people do and invest that money right back into the downpayment.
In summary, the 2021 Silverado HD now comes with a $500 cash allowance and a $1,000 accessory allowance. Custom models get a $250 package discount. This is also helpful, as you can either opt for the $295 Gooseneck Hitch Package and only pay $45 or add the Safety Convenience Package at a reduced price of $140. The latter includes forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, steering wheel audio controls, a 4.2-inch color display in the instrument cluster, and cruise control.
The above deals are only valid until September 30 2021, and you have to take delivery of the truck before then.
For reference, the 2021 2500 HD range starts at $36,995 for the WT, increasing to $64,795 for the High Country. The 2022 models cost the same as it's essentially the same car. The only major upgrade for the 2022 MY was the Multi-Flex tailgate added as an optional extra across the entire range.
The 2021 and 2022 3500 HD models start at $38,195 for the WT, all the way up to $65,995 for the High Country.
From our side, we're fans of the Silverado HD. It gives the Ford F-250 Super Duty a run for its money, and we like the powerful base engine, high cargo and payload capacities, and the impressive tow ratings. The F-250 received some minor upgrades in 2021, which are worth checking out.
