2009 model year changes

Following a complete redesign in 2007 and few changes last year, the Chevy Silverado enters 2009 with only superficial updates, mainly in the realm of package updates. Interior Plus and Exterior Plus packages add conveniences such as steering wheel-mounted audio controls, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, remote start, an EZ-Lift tailgate, fog lamps, and, in Extended and Crew Cab models, dual-zone climate control. GM's StabiliTrak stability control system is now standard on standard-box Extended and Crew Cab trucks, while XM NavTraffic, a rearview camera and a new version of OnStar also enter the mix. Imperial Blue Metallic and Black Granite Metallic replace Dark Blue Metallic and Desert Brown Metallic on the exterior color palette.
