Top 5 Truck Mounts for the 2020-2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD

I bought my first truck in 1989 when I was 16, a Black, 2-wheel drive 1987 Toyota long bed with 71k miles for $4,100.00, ever since then I have always owned a truck. I love the convenience of being able to tow, haul and store for long trips and still have plenty of room for the family. For me, a truck is the perfect family car that’s always there when you need it. I tried owning just a car but that only lasted about 6-months when I realized I was not willing to give up on the convenience and utility a truck brings. Owning a truck just fits my lifestyle and I do not think I will ever be without one again.

My current truck is a Silver with Black interior 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Z71 4x4 with the Duramax Diesel and Allison 10 Speed Transmission. With 445 HP and 910 Ft. lb. of torque the 2020-2021 Silverado HD is a luxury beast. I have owned 6 Chevrolet trucks over the last 26 years, and this is the best one yet. The new 10 speed transmission is super smooth which makes it feel “sporty” compared my previous 2015 model and the interior features are better than ever. If you have not test driven the new Silverado HD, and are a Chevy diesel truck guy like me, I highly recommend it. I like all trucks but have settled into my Chevy’s so they will be the topic of this Top 5 list of ways you can quickly and easily mount your phone with ROKFORM car mounts and a ROKFORM case in a new 2020-2021 Silverado or Silverado HD.

This was not an easy top 5 list to curate because all 5 ROKFORM car mounts work really good in the 2020-2021 Silverado HD but I will list my favorites in order and tell you why I like them. I will also show you where I have them mounted in my personal truck, counting down from 5 working to what I feel is the best phone mount for the 2020-2021 Silverado HD. If you don’t want to read the entire Top 5 list, I made a short video showing each one in action and you can view it here:

5. ROKFORM Windshield Suction Mount

 

The ROKFORM Windshield Suction Mount is a popular phone mount choice for the 2020-2021 Chevrolet Silverado, its heavy-duty construction and adjustability are a great combination. I found that the best place to mount it is to the left of the steering wheel allowing me to easily twist and lock it in place to have a clear view of GPS Maps, texts and incoming calls. Once adjusted to the view I like, I never have to mess with it again. I can easily twist and lock it in place in just a few seconds and it comes off just as easily. Another nice benefit of the ROKFORM windshield suction mount is that it can be easily removed and used in different locations like another car, in your office, on your fridge, toolbox or anywhere smooth and flat. 

Features, specs and benefits:

  • Extreme adjustability, 210 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation
  • Secure mounting, RokLock mount works with all ROKFORM twist lock cases
  • Powerful, heavy duty suction cups hold securely to windshield
  • Portable, easily remove to use in different cars, trucks or other smooth flat surfaces.
  • 2-year warranty & 60 Day money back guarantee

Highs:

  • Extreme adjustability
  • Heavy-duty all-around toughness
  • Portable, easily move from car to truck and back
  • Twist lock mounting is ultra-secure
  • 2-year warranty & 60 Day money back guarantee

Lows:

  • Twist lock is not as fast or convenient as magnetic mounting
  • Takes up more space than other ROKFORM mounts

4. ROKFORM RokLock Twist Lock Car Dash Mount

This is the original. The first phone mount we made for mounting a phone inside a car or truck. Part of the reason we invented the RokLock Twist lock system back in 2011 is because we could not find a car dash mount that was not a clumsy, ugly piece of plastic. Nobody on our team wanted to clutter their dash with a giant claw or clamp, so we scratched our own itch and came up with the Roklock Car Dash Mount. This easy to use mount is made from tough polycarbonate with a CNC machined aluminum lock and is easy to install using 3M® VHB® Its small 1.625” footprint can be mounted in a variety of places inside the 2020-2021 Chevrolet Silverado but my favorite spot is on the middle of the dash to the right of the steering wheel and there is an identical spot on the passenger side. It’s fast and easy to twist and lock my phone in portrait or landscape and ultra-secure, the combination of polycarbonate and aluminum add a nice look to the dash too. This is our lowest cost phone mount but don’t let the low-cost fool you, its ultra-durable, secure and proven for more than 10 years.

 

Features, Specs and Benefits:

  • Adheres to most flat areas of the dashboard
  • Allows for portrait and landscape mount viewing
  • RokLock twist lock provides a secure hold over even the roughest terrain
  • Compatible with all ROKFORM RokLock Twist Lock cases
  • Can be removed when your truck is sold without harming the surface below
  • 2-year warranty & 60 Day money back guarantee

Highs:

  • The Original: 10+ year proven design
  • Compact footprint looks good on the dash
  • Secure twist lock mounting provides a worry-free hold
  • Easy to use, just twist and lock
  • Low cost, our lowest cost car or truck mount

 Lows:

  • No adjustability
  • Not as easy to use as magnetic mounts
  • Can be removed without harming the dash, but you will need to replace the 3M® VHB® for the next vehicle which we offer for a nominal cost of $1.

3. ROKFORM Low Pro Mount

The ROKFORM Low Pro Magnetic Car dash mount is the 2nd mount we ever developed, and it was originally tested in my 2006 Chevy Silverado, the truck I had at the time. This phone mount was originally much smaller because back then we were just mounting iPhone 4’s, but now with the bigger heaver phones like the iPhone 12 Pro Max or Galaxy S21 Ultra its new and improved with a much larger and more powerful 1” magnet. This is our lowest profile smallest mount that almost disappears on the Silverado dash. It is super easy to install using the same 3M® VHB® as our RokLock Car Dash Mount. My favorite spot is in middle area of my dash and like the RokLock Car Dash mount there is a matching spot on the passenger side. These little mounts are small but powerful and can be used just about anywhere, not just inside your truck. I have them on my dresser to mount my phone at night, at my desk and on my wood workbench. Very handy and very secure even over big bumps. The magnet-to-magnet connection provided when using a ROKFORM magnetic case does not budge.

 

Features, Specs and Benefits:

  • Adheres to most flat surfaces on the dashboard
  • Small 1.25” footprint but powerful enough for even large phones like the iPhone 12 Pro Max or Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Easy to use, instant magnet to magnet mounting on a Rokform Magnetic case
  • Can be removed when your truck is sold without harming the surface below
  • 2-year warranty & 60 Day money back guarantee

Highs:

  • Small and compact, blends into dash
  • Convenient, can be used in more places than just your dash
  • Fast, magnetic mounting of your phone is instant
  • Proven design and a great choice for handsfree phone use

 Lows:

  • No adjustability
  • Can be removed, but you will need to replace the 3M® VHB® for the next vehicle which we offer at www.rokform.com for a nominal cost of $1.

2. Swivel Dash Mount

Now it is down to the top 2. The Swivel Dash Mount earned the #2 spot because of its ease of use, adjustability and simple design. The Swivel Dash Mount uses 3M® VHB® to secure it in place. All of our mounts that use 3M® VHB® can be removed without harming the surface below and we offer replacement 3M® VHB® for when you decide to remove it and place it in another car or truck. In my 2020 Silverado HD I like the Swivel dash mount on the top upper left portion of my dash, this allows for easy viewing in portrait or landscape and I have a variety of angles to choose from. The strong swivel adjusts to my desired angle and stays there until I want to move it. The super grip face holds my phone secure even over rough terrain.

 Features, specs and benefits.

  • Adjustable design allows for perfect angle adjustment
  • Super grip magnetic face securely holds phone in portrait or landscape
  • Easy to use, instant magnet to magnet mounting on a Rokform Magnetic case
  • All aluminum construction and low-profile design blends into dash
  • Can be removed when your truck is sold without harming the surface below
  • 2-year warranty & 60 Day money back guarantee

Highs:

  • Fast, magnetic mounting of your phone is instant
  • Versatile, and can be used on several parts of the Silverado dash
  • Adjustable, allows for fine tuning for the perfect angle
  • Reliable, super grip magnetic face provides a proven reliable hold on your phone 

Lows:

  • Not as low profile as the Low Pro mount
  • The most expensive magnetic mount option for the Silverado at $29.99
  • Can be removed, but you will need to replace the 3M® VHB® for the next vehicle which we offer at www.rokform.com for a nominal cost of $1.

1. Super Grip Vent Mount

The number 1 on my list of truck phone mounts for the 2020-2021 Chevy Silverado HD is our Super Grip Vent Mount. I use the Super Grip Vent Mount in my 2020 Silverado HD every single day. My set up includes an iPhone 12 Pro with ROKFORM Crystal Clear Case or the ROKFORM Rugged case and the ROKFORM Sport Ring. As a side note, if you have not tried the Sport Ring, I personally highly recommend it, it’s one of those products that I did not think I would use a lot but now I cannot live without it. The stand is so convenient in so many ways and we added a super strong magnet that’s handy in just about any situation. Back to the vent mount, my location of choice is on the louvers on the top right driver side vent. For me it’s the perfect viewing angle with no adjustment required. When I get in my truck, I simply slap my phone up on the vent and its always there right where I need it. I can easily access the screen and take a quick glance to read the map or notice an incoming call or text. In that location it is also in the perfect location for if I need to plug in the cable to charge the phone. My truck has a wireless charger and I have used that a few times but it’s in a place where I have to look down taking my eyes off the road if I want to see the phone. I prefer having my phone where I can see it, on the vent with my ROKFORM Super Grip Vent Mount, my top pick for he 2020-2021 Chevy Silverado HD.

Features, specs and benefits.

  • Wide gripping area holds mount secure to vent
  • Large 32mm Magnet and Super Grip face holds even large phones like the iPhone 12 Pro Max or S21 Ultra
  • Instantly mounts to any ROKFORM magnetic case
  • Black anodized machined aluminum looks great and blends in with dash
  • Can be easily removed and transferred to a different location or vehicle
  • 2-year warranty & 60 Day money back guarantee

Highs:

  • Location, perfect mounting location in 2020-2021 Chevy Silverado
  • Fast magnetic mounting of your phone is instant
  • Portable, easily remove to use in different cars, trucks
  • Reliable, super grip magnetic face provides a proven reliable hold on your phone

Lows:

  • No adjustability
  • Blocks some of the airflow from that vent when the phone is mounted but I have found that it’s not an issue when I select the face and feet airflow combo. This keeps me cool and prefer it over just straight top vent airflow.

Phone Mounts for the passenger in the Chevy Silverado and Silverado HD

The same 5 phone mounts work great on the passenger side too. I always have a Super Grip Vent mount on the passenger side or my truck to mirror the vent mount I use on the driver side so that my wife or friends with a ROKFORM case have a place to put their phone. These are the 5 phone mounts listed again that can also be used on the passenger side of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado and Silverado HD.

Super Grip Vent Mount

Swivel Dash Phone mount

Low Pro magnetic car dash mount

RokLock Car Dash Mount

Windshield Suction Mount

Don’t forget about the back seat! Phone mounts for the back seat of the Chevy Silverado and Silverado HD.

I have an 11-year-old daughter who likes to watch videos and movies when on longer road trips. She is not allowed to have a phone yet, so I let her use mine or my wife’s phone to keep her entertained in the back seat. The best option for the back seat is on the back of the center console. This option will only work if you have the bucket seats, but if you do, it’s perfect. With the Swivel Dash Mount placed in the center of the back console she can adjust it to her right or left and up and down for a great handsfree viewing angle. This area is also great for mounting the Low pro magnetic car dash mount, but it lacks the adjustability of the Swivel dash mount.

 

I hope that after reading my top 5 list and seeing exactly where each mount is placed in the 2020-2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD you can make an informed decision of what ROKFORM car mount is right for you. If you still have questions our customer service team is standing by and they can be reached by phone, toll free 855-765-3676 or by e-mail at info@rokform.com.
