2021 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra get Tahoe interior components

It looks like the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 and its sibling, the GMC Sierra 1500 may get new interior components. These upgrades are based on what we have seen inside the 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe and consist mainly of the fixed center console. This information comes to us from our friends at GM Authority. This is not yet officially confirmed by General Motors.

Many have speculated that this would happen sooner or later. One aspect of the new Silverado and Sierra that has dogged GM is their evolutionary and mild interior updates. This is especially true when their vehicle’s interiors are compared to many competitors.

This is the current Chevy Silverado’s interior. The GMC sibling is very similar.
… and this is the 2021 Suburban’s interior. The center console is what’s being added to the truck. This is what many GM fans have waited for: a nicer interior.

There will be a few alterations. The 2021 Suburban and Tahoe will likely donate many parts. They will receive some alterations, but even the part numbers are the same (RPO Code of D07). Changes should be made for GM trucks with bench seats, and they may be some additional touches that help differentiate the center console from the SUVs.

There’s more:

A power-operated tailgate will now be available on the LT, RST, and LT Trail Boss trucks. It appears that other changes to both GM trucks include higher level switchgear to the lower and mid-model trim models as well.

Silverado HD and Sierra HD may get the same updates for the 2022 models

It looks like the HD version of both trucks will wait a year before they receive the same interior upgrades. It’s unknown if these larger trucks will have additional upgrades on top of the interior enhancemences.

What do you think? Will this upgrade help push GM back in the (interior) game against FCA and others? Is this enough?
