New 2019 Chevy Silverado Has A Bed Fit For Texas


Everything is bigger in the new Silverado.

The Chevy Silverado is the second-best-selling vehicle in the US behind the Ford F-150, so GM knew it had to get it right with the new 2019 model. The 2019 Silverado boasts a number of impressive engines, including more efficient V8s, a turbodiesel inline-six, and a surprise four-cylinder turbo. One of the most important changes is a size increase over the previous model. The new Silverado is bigger in almost every dimension, which is extremely important in the pickup truck segment.

Dethroning the F-150 is no easy task, but the new Silverado has a huge advantage - best-in-class cargo volume, box depth, and box length at the floor. Put simply, the Silverado now has the largest bed of any full-size pickup truck. The 2018 Silverado's bed measured 53, 62, and 75 cubic feet in short, standard, and long box configurations respectively. The 2019 model ups these measurements to 63, 72, and 89 cubic feet. Compare this to the amount of space in the F-150 and Ram 1500 and the Silverado comes away with about a 10-cubic-foot advantage in almost every configuration.

In addition to all of the added space, Chevy has given the Silverado smart touches such as 12 fixed tie-downs, an additional nine moving tie-downs, larger corner steps in the bumpers, in-bed LED lighting, and a 110/120-volt power outlet. There will also be an industry exclusive power up/down tailgate optional on LTZ trim and standard on High Country models. If bed size is the most important attribute on your shopping list, the Silverado is the truck to buy.
