If you want a pickup truck that prioritizes function over style, the Chevy Silverado is the perfect truck for you. It’s the segment leader in cargo volume and box depth and has 12 fixed tie-downs and a powered tailgate to sweeten the deal.

Chevy understands that the truck bed is the most important feature of any pickup truck, and they’ve spent a lot of time improving the truck bed of the Silverado. Not only do you get high-grade steel construction, great cargo box space, and 21 tie-downs, you also get integrated LED lighting and a power outlet in the bed. You also get several truck bed options, depending on the variant you choose.

Standard Bed

The total cargo volume of the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is significantly larger than previous models, up from 62 cubic feet in the 2018 Silverado to an impressive 72 cubic feet in 2019. The official 2019 Chevy Silverado truck bed dimensions are:

  • 80″ long
  • 60″ wide
  • 22″ deep

These dimensions put the Silverado firmly in the lead for the largest truck bed in 2019.

Short Bed

Short bed configurations represent a compromise between space and utility. Some drivers need more compact and maneuverable trucks, and the Chevy short bed delivers space and drive quality in spades.

The only difference between the short bed and the standard bed is the length. The standard bed is 80″ long, while the short bed comes in at 70″. It still provides an impressive 63 cubic feet of space, more than enough for most people’s needs.

Tailgate Variants

The 2019 Silverado 1500 comes in four different tailgate variants, depending on the trim level you choose. These include:

  • A standard gate that’s manually lockable with a key
  • A standard gate with lift assist, also manually lockable with a key
  • Power Lock/Release, which can be power locked and includes lift assist and automatic release
  • Power-Up and Down, which includes lift assist, automatic release, power locking, and the ability to raise or lower the tailgate via the key fob, touchpads, or from inside the cabin

Optional Tonneau Cover

Tonneau covers are a common add-on to pickup trucks. They expand your cargo space while protecting your items from adverse weather conditions. Chevy has a history of providing factory-made tonneau covers that fit their trucks perfectly.

There are two covers for the Chevy Silverado 1500: hard and soft. The hardcover offers the best protection possible and includes a window for excellent visibility. The softcover is slightly less robust but is easier to install and remove. Chevy makes their tonneau covers from long-lasting, durable materials, and your cover will last as long as your truck.
