Despite that GM still uses this nameplate in Mexico, most drivers probably thing of the old truck from the 70s when someone mentions Cheyenne’s name. According to rumors, this nameplate won’t be reserved for the Mexican market only anymore, as it is expected to see it in North America as well. Those reports suggest a completely new model. There are also some sources that speculate about the possible special version of the current Silverado, some kind of a luxury trim. In any case, the feel too excited about the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS, as the actual chances to see it aren’t that big.
Therefore, take the following paragraphs with a reserve, despite that rumors suggest its arrival already for the next year.
2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS Design
When it comes to what to expect from 2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS, it’s very hard to talk about anything more precise at this point. As we’ve just mentioned, the company still uses this nameplate in Mexico. Practically, it is nothing more than a rebadged version of Silverado. More precisely, base models use Silverado name, while the Cheyenne nameplate is for higher trim levels. Considering that we are talking about a pretty fresh model, it’s not hard to presume that the Mexican version will remain pretty much the same. Still, keep in mind that Silverado is coming with a completely new interior design for the next year. So, we may see the same layout in the Cheyenne as well.
2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS and U.S. Market
The real question about the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne is will it come to the U.S. market. According to rumors, the company works on a completely new model. In the past, this nameplate was used for a special version of the legendary C/K pickup, characterized by unique color combinations and a couple of more exclusive details. However, the rumors suggest we are about to see something different this time, a vehicle that will be based on the current-generation Silverado but characterized by exclusive styling, more luxury etc. Of course, the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne SS would be a hi-performance version, equipped with all kinds of upgrades, powerful engine etc.
Also, there are reports that suggest that GM could completely change the naming policy. According to them, we would see the same thing as in Mexico. Base models would retain the current name, while the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne name would be reserved for range-topping models. Still, this scenario doesn’t sound too likely to us, especially if we consider that Silverado is pretty stable in terms of sales numbers for years.
2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS Under the Hood
No matter what happens with the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS, we are pretty sure about the things under the hood. Therefore, count on a familiar 4.3-liter V6, which will power base models, while the new 2.7-liter turbo-four will be in the offer as well. Furthermore, there are two well-known V8 engines, with 355 and 420 horsepower. Finally, there is a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
When it comes to the SS model, we could easily see an upgraded version of the 6.2-liter V8, though it’s still early to talk about details.
Release Date and Price
If we can rely on rumors, the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS models could come to the U.S. market already in the next year. However, the chances to see this happen are actually pretty small. On the other side, the Mexican model will carry on in the same way, with the base price around 912.000 pesos, which would be around 47.500 U.S. Dollars.
