Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Interior & Cargo Rating

2019 Silverado 2500HD Interior

The interior of the Silverado was designed predominantly for functionality and liveability, and so it's not particularly luxurious or plush. Although the general cabin design is incredibly dated - some may even say bland - it's well put together and offers good material quality throughout. It's very spacious too, so even the tallest of Cowboys and most muscular Linebackers will feel more than comfortable inside. However, due to the sheer size of the thing, visibility is somewhat hampered by not really knowing where the extremities of the vehicle are, as well as having broad and bulky pillars obstructing your view. Despite this, the Silverado will do well on long road trips with comfortable seats that offer good support, and an effective air conditioning system to keep you cool.

Seating and Interior Space

A heavy-duty truck such as this is highly versatile, and so the Silverado 2500HD offers seating options for either just two or three up front or up to six passengers in total. The front seats are comprised of a three-seater bench with outboard head restraints, with a fold-down armrest in the center position if you don't want to slide a third occupant in. The rear seats in Double Cab and Crew Cab variants, also seat three, with all seating positions offering comfort, support, and ample space. On WT and LT trims, seating is cloth-appointed, with manual adjustments available, including lumbar support. On the LTZ trims and upwards, heated leather seating is standard, which also has a nifty split-usage function - meaning you can direct heat to your aching back without having a roasted rump at the same time. High Country editions have heating and ventilation on perforated leather bucket seats, which are also optionally available on some of the lower models.

You could host a full-on picnic in the cabin of this truck with the amount of space available on the Crew Cab models - there is headroom and legroom for ages, with all seating positions having more than enough room to stretch out, making even extended road trips a breeze. The Double Cab variant is slightly tighter, but only in the back due to the shorter cab. Still, 38.6 inches of headroom and 34.6 inches for leg space is sufficient for shorter trips with adult passengers. The Regular Cab's front-row-only seating remains spacious.

Interior Colors and Materials

Basic upholstery in entry-level models is comprised of Dark Ash vinyl with Jet Black accents, with an optional upgrade to the same color scheme in cloth. The same applies to the LT trim but with added color options in Jet Black or Dune cloth with Cocoa accents. For the LTZ, all the available cloth options apply, but Jet black leather with corresponding accents can be had as well as Dune leather with Cocoa trims and Dark Ash-themed leather. At the top of the range, the High Country edition goes all-in with perforated leather seats in Jet Black with Ash Gray accents or a Saddle brown theme that takes the High Country theme quite literally.

2019 Silverado 2500HD Trunk and Cargo Space

As with most rivals in this segment, varying bed lengths mean the cargo space is not only practical, but versatile too. The Silverado 2500HD can be had as a standard six-foot six-inches length (SB) or an eight-foot Long Box (LB). SB models have 61 cubic feet available for loading cargo, and the LB variants provide 15.3 cubes more.

The Double Cab Silverado has a payload capacity ranging from 2,987 lbs to 3,276 lbs depending on which bed is equipped and which drivetrain is configured. Crew Cab editions have payloads starting at 2,356 lbs and max out at 3,233 lbs, depending on any combination of box length, drivetrain and engine equipped.

In the cabin, there are numerous storage options; rear-seat-equipped versions have back seats that do fold up if you want to load mid-size suitcases, boxes or equipment. For personal items, the Silverado more than delivers. Huge pockets and bins abound, a large center console is available, and dual gloveboxes can hold notebooks, phones, and even slim laptops. Numerous cup holders are found in the front console and in every door. A floor console and under-seat storage can be optioned on additionally.

2019 Silverado 2500HD Infotainment and Features


Not that you would necessarily want your adolescent behind the wheel of this mammoth truck, but just in case you do, Chevrolet equips the Silverado with teen driver technology to help keep them responsible. A rearview camera and cruise control are equipped from the base model, with forward collision alert, lane departure warning, park assist, and safety alert driver's seat available on top-end models (standard on High Country). All trim levels, barring the entry-level WT, also get remote keyless entry and a remote locking tailgate. Notable convenience features include a heated steering wheel on the top trim, heating and ventilation for front seats as options from mid-range, as well as a universal home remote, 110-volt power outlet, power sliding rear window, and passenger assist handles on the A-pillars.


The entry-level infotainment system is comprised of a seven-inch color touchscreen display with an AM/FM stereo and Bluetooth audio streaming for select smartphones only - six speakers are standard. This is upgraded to an eight-inch unit on the LT and LTZ specs, and adds USB ports, an auxiliary jack, and voice-activated technology. The High Country trim adds navigation and a premium Bose seven-speaker setup with subwoofer, but only if you choose front bucket seats for your ride. A single-slot CD player and HD radio is available for all but the entry-level trim. Using the Chevy MyLink system is not complicated; the system is user-friendly but doesn't run as smoothly as competing systems do. Slow inputs and fussy smartphone connectivity can be frustrating, but at least both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard inclusions. A rear-seat entertainment system can be optioned on to the top two trims and includes a DVD/Blu-Ray system with a 9.2-inch LCD display.
