We are still eagerly waiting for the comeback of the famous 2021 Chevy Kodiak. According to the recently leaked documents, the upcoming truck would make its comeback later this year. Alongside Kodiak, the manufacturer will also introduce a refreshed version of Silverado 4500. Many changes can be expected and we cannot wait to see what’s new Chevy has to offer.
If you didn’t know, this model has been produced by General Motors from 1980 to 2009. Moreover, after almost ten years it has been replaced with Silverado 4500. However, according to leaked information, the manufacturer might keep Silverado 4500 and introduce the all-new Kodiak.
2021 Chevy Kodiak Exterior Design
There is no much information regarding the design of 2021 Chevy Kodiak. Obviously, Kodiak will use many elements from its successor Silverado 4500.
If you remember, Chevrolet introduced the all-new Silverado 1500 in January 2018, then followed it up with the unveiling of the 2019 Silverado 4500 in March. As you can see, this model is still fresh and it will receive mild updates for the coming year. We must add that this model is the best choice if you need a hauling machine. Kodiak will be based on Silverado HD models for sure. So, we can expect bold and aggressive styling.
The interior of upcoming 2021 Chevy Kodiak truck will definitively use many cues from the rest of Silverado truck models. Thanks to that, we can assume great comfort for most demanding drivers. From the leaked information, the upcoming Kodiak might use the same infotainment system as the famous Silverado 1500.
Moreover, Chevrolet’s package of standard equipment on many models includes a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, plus a 6-speaker audio system, one USB port and a 12-volt outlet. Also, expect an excellent safety system like includes blind-spot monitoring system, 360-degree camera, towing and trailering assist and more.
There is no much information about engine specs of the forthcoming 2021 Chevy Kodiak. The engine department is the most challenging part of all companies. Moreover, developing a new engine is too expensive and we believe that the new 2021 Chevy Kodiak will use existing engines. Most probably, this pickup truck will use a 6.6-litre V8 Duramax engine. This turbodiesel powertrain is very reliable. As many of you probably know, the same engine is under the hood of Silverado pickup and it delivers 350 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque.
We heard many speculations over other websites. Most recent is that we can expect more economical Duramax diesel engine. That means that fuel economy could be better than before. Also, we can expect even more outputs. Without a doubt, this pickup will definitely deliver a fantastic performance. The only con is that it might use the ageing 6-speed automatic transmission as the only gearbox option.
2021 Chevy Kodiak Price and Release Date
The new-gen 2021 Chevy Kodiak will shake all markets with its comeback, for sure. However, we cannot declare its price at this time. General Motors will release more details in the coming mounts. Obviously, Kodiak truck will go on sale later this year, or in the first quarter of 2021.
