This article will address the differences between the different trim levels offered for Chevy trucks. Every maker has different nomenclature for their vehicles, so it can get confusing when remembering all of the different setups.


The entry-level trim is geared towards work trucks, fleet operations, and those who don’t need any of the fancy frills on their new Chevy truck in Edmond


This trim is named the Work Truck trim.


In the 2021 Chevy Silverado Work Truck, you’re granted a basic suite of features and not much beyond that. It’s the lowest entry cost for a new truck, but you can still change key layouts like adding a 6.6 foot bed or opting for a 4×4 drivetrain.


While this new Silverado trim is the lowest it gets, you’re still getting the same quality, reliable truck that American have trusted for over 100 years. 


The next trim level up is called Custom.

The Custom trim for the new Chevy Silverado in Perry, Oklahoma starts at around $36,500 and comes with a slightly more powerful 310-horsepower gas engine. Despite being a more powerful setup than the Work Truck trim Silverado, it pulls in noticeably better fuel economy, to the tune of 21 (combined) miles per gallon.


While this trim level at its lowest price offers a 4×2 setup, you can very affordably step up to a 4×4 setup in the same trim level.


Despite being on the lower-end of the new Silverado price range, it comes with more creature comforts than the WT trim.


The LT w/ 1LT trim is the next step in the new Silverado trim levels.

As we crest the $40,000 price range, we start to get packages like the Convenience Package II, Texas Edition Plus, and the Safety Package.


It’s still the same truck as the Work Truck Silverado in OKC, but it’s packing some frills that cannot be had for the entry-level pricing. There’s even a bump in available colors, shifting from nine colors for lower levels up to thirteen color options for the LT w/ 1LT trim level.


For most people, this is enough truck for working and comfort.

The Custom Trail Boss is especially geared towards being proficient in all things offroad. To further drive this point home, this new Silverado trim level has standard 4×4.


The Safety Confidence Package, Midnight Edition package, Assist Step and Tonneau Value Package II, and Dark Essentials Package mostly all add to the aesthetics of your truck, but critically the safety package adds collision alerts, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian warnings, and more for your peace of mind.


This higher-end trim level Chevy starts at $42,000 and works its way up to the mid $44,000s.


Moving into luxe territory, we have the LT w/ 2FL.


This starts at a hair above $42,000, and it features all of the previously-named packages and more. 


It comes standard with 4×4, it seats six, and it has 310-horsepower, which is more than adequate for hauling, hooning, and hitching. You’ll even pull in a combined 20 miles per gallon, which makes the new Chevy Silverado in Enid, Oklahoma a fuel efficient full-sized truck.


You might not “need” all of the features and frills on this level of the Silverado, but it’s sure nice to have them, because then you have them.

RST – Ascending to the top of what a truck can be


Not only does this level come with all aforementioned packages, but it also comes with features like a 120-volt instrument panel power outlet, a power sliding rear window, 10-way power seat w/ lumbar support, and myriad other high-end furnishings.


While it starts at a heft $44,000, you’ll thank yourself for springing for the pieces that make this truck a perfect home on wheels.


Stepping up to the LTZ


While the price bump between lower trims and the LTZ is to the sum of a few thousand dollars, it’s well worth the extra money.


The Silverado LTZ trim comes with wireless charging, a 7-speaker Bose sound system, a power sunroof, distinct badging, and a bevy of other additions that take this from a truck to a lifestyle. You can still handle hard tasks with this Chevy, but it wouldn’t look out of place in any number of high-end Oklahoma City destinations.

High Country – the highest of all new Chevy trims
