Tame the Wild In the 2021 Chevy Silverado

By: Aaron B. Cohen | August 20, 2021

If you’re looking to get away this summer, there’s nothing like a weekend in the woods. Michigan offers ample opportunity to escape city life and reconnect with the outdoors. But if you want to do it right, you’ll need a vehicle suited to handle the state’s unruly forests and unpredictable terrain. In the 2021 Chevy Silverado, car camping has never looked so good.

Elevate your experience

The days of flooded tents and stinging pests are over. The 2021 Chevy Silverado’s massive truck bed — 20% larger than other pickups — provides more than enough space to throw down a mattress for a night under the stars. Of course, with Michigan’s unpredictable weather, you may want to consider a covered sleeping set-up. Official GM accessories like the Box Sportz Camping Tent by Napier seamlessly attach directly to the bed of your truck. With Chevy’s Durabed technology, you can rest assured that your sleep is secure from below as your tent repels rain and bugs from above. 

Hitch up the old camper

If you’re planning on bringing the family along, or just prefer additional space, take advantage of the Silverado’s best-in-class towing, with the segment-first Advanced Trailering System that displays beautifully right on your Infotainment screen. It has never been so easy to hitch up the family camper to your vehicle and with additional features like Trailer Sway Control and Hill Start Assist, you can attack the wild knowing that your most precious cargo is safe and secure.

These wheels were meant for driving

Don’t let the dirt roads and muddy crossings deter you from your dream campsite. The 2021 Chevy Silverado is built to tame the wild. With available specialized Drive Modes including Off-Road, Terrain and Snow/Ice, you are already prepared to tackle whatever the wilderness may throw at you. Take the unbeaten path knowing your truck can handle it all. Car wash not included.

An off-roading beast

For those who can’t resist the allure of the unknown, the 2021 Chevy Silverado offers additional features that will transform your daily ride into a multi-terrain juggernaut. Off-road suspension? You’re covered with Rancho shocks. Extra traction? You’re hooked up with Chevy’s toughest, all-terrain tires. And forget about that “soft underbelly” problem. The all-metal underbody shield will protect your truck from snags that would take most vehicles out of commission.

In Michigan, camping is what we do. In the 2021 Chevy Silverado, you can take the experience to a whole new level. You already know that Chevy drives the Motor City. Now see how it drives when you escape the city altogether.
