Also new are Premium Camper Mirrors with chrome cap and all-new features, including power fold, LED amber running lamps, and an LED back-up lamp. A spray-on bed liner with the Chevy bowtie logo on the front bed wall is now standard on High Country models and available on most other models and cabs. Z71 models get an Off-Road graphic in the Driver Info Center, trucks with the AZ3 bench seat get a USB jack in the glovebox, and the Silverado Rally Edition appearance package is now available.
