If you’ve been thinking about buying a Chevy Silverado truck, you have probably asked yourself how long the Silverado is, and you have been thinking with both the cab and the bed in that calculation. We want to help you with that.

A white Chevy Silverado on display, How Long Is a Chevy Silverado?The Chevy Silverado’s overall length ranges from 229.5 inches to 241.2 inches, depending on the configuration of the truck. This means the trim, the type of cab you choose, and the length of the bed.

We will break down what the main differences in the cab size are, and why that might be important in making a decision as to which Silverado model is going to be best for you. You want to make sure you get the right truck for your needs. So be sure to keep reading. 

What Are The Main Differences In Cab Size?

There are three main sizes of the cab when it comes to your truck choices, and it pays to know something about them: they are regular, double, and crew, but what does that mean?

Regular comes with 2 doors and a single row of seats, with little or no space behind the seat, and they come in a bench or bucket configuration. Double cab means that you have a 4 door cab with 4 front-hinged doors, and a back seat for an adult with limited legroom. A crew cab is designed, as you might have guessed, to carry the crew. It has 4 full-size forward-hinged doors and a full rear seat.

You are going to have to first know what the main purpose of having the truck is – work or leisure. Then you have to decide if it is primarily for transporting people, equipment, or both.

Regular Cab Option 1500

If you opt for this cab size, the Silverado’s overall length is 229.5 inches.

Double Cab Option 1500

This option will get you an overall length of 231.7 inches.

Crew Cab Option 1500

The crew cab configuration with the 1500 gets you either a 231.7-inch overall length or a 241.2-inch overall length.

Crew Cab Option 2500

The overall length of the crew cab option for the 2500 clocks in at 249.95 inches to 266 inches. 

Crew Cab Option 3500

If you go for the crew cab option within the 3500 line, you are also looking at an overall length of 249.95 inches to 266 inches.

What Are The Different Bed Options Available?

Depending on what it is that you are going to be using your truck for, you are going to need to consider the length of the bed that you pick. There is only one of the cab options that Chevy provides you within the 1500 series that comes with a singular option in regards to the bed. It is the regular cab, which comes with the long bed (or long box).

Move up to the 2500 range, and the different models are pretty versatile, but some trims and cab sizes are only going to come with certain options on the bed size. The same applies to the 3500 range, where the customizations of the cab and the trim have an effect on what bed size you can choose.

If you are moving a lot around, you are going to want the long box, so that may affect which truck is going to work best for you.

If you need slightly less room, a standard box might be for you. Again, you have to balance the needs of transporting people versus whatever it is that you are hauling in the back, and also what look you want for the truck, because trim, as mentioned, also affects the choice of bed available.

The short box may be best for people who don’t need to move so much around. It is more for personal use, or perhaps primarily just for moving your equipment around, and not that of the others you’re with.

In Closing

The overall length that you are looking for in your Silverado is going to break down into two very important lengths – the cab size and the bed size. A lot of this is going to be determined by what you are using the truck for. Do you need to transport a lot of crew in one truck, or are you looking to transport mainly equipment and materials?

If your truck isn’t for work, are you going to need as big of a bed, and might you not be better opting for one of the more comfortable cabs? Do you need 4 wheel drive? If so, that drops the options on what size bed you can have.

Working out what you want to carry is also going to be important here. What are the dimensions of your equipment? There is no point in getting a truck that is too small. Hopefully, the data we have given you will help you answer the questions you had and find the best Silverado for you.

Chevrolet Silverado

Motor vehicle

The Chevrolet Silverado is a range of trucks manufactured by General Motors under the Chevrolet brand. Introduced for the 1999 model year, the Silverado is the successor to the long-running Chevrolet C/K model line. Taking its name from the top trim level from the Chevrolet C/K series, the Silverado is offered as a series of full-size pickup trucks, chassis cab trucks, and medium-duty trucks. The fourth generation of the model line was introduced for the 2019 model year.

The Chevrolet Silverado shares mechanical commonality with the GMC Sierra; GMC ended the use of the C/K nomenclature a model generation prior to Chevrolet. In Mexico, heavy-duty versions of the Silverado use the Chevrolet Cheyenne name. Competing against the Ford F-Series, Dodge Ram, Nissan Titan, and Toyota Tundra, the Silverado is among the best-selling vehicles in the United States, selling almost 12 million examples since its introduction.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The Silverado nameplate made its debut for the 1975 model year, becoming the top trim level on all Chevrolet C/K trucks,[1] slotted above Custom Deluxe, Scottsdale, and Cheyenne. At the same time, GMC C/K trucks used variations of the Sierra name (Sierra, Sierra Classic, Sierra Grande, and High Sierra). Today, Chevrolet still uses the CK and the CC in their current model codes.[citation needed]

For the 1988 GMT400 model architecture, Chevrolet retained the C/K model nomenclature, with GMC branding its full-size line as Sierras. While sharing chassis and bodies, the model chronology of the Silverado and Sierra are different, with five generations of the Sierra and four of the Silverado.

In 2018, at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, IN, Chevrolet unveiled the first medium-duty Silverado, expanding the model line to a 4500, 5500, and 6500 chassis cab. Largely the successor to the 2003-2010 GMT560 chassis, the medium-duty Silverado is exclusive to Chevrolet, with no plans for an equivalent GMC version.

The GMT800 Silverado/Sierra 1500 and 2500 pickup trucks were released in August 1998 as 1999 models. The "classic" light-duty GMT400 C/K trucks were continued in production for that first year alongside the new models, and the Heavy-Duty GMT400 pickups (alongside the GMT400 SUVs) were continued until 2000, with the new GMT800 Silverado/Sierra HD (Heavy Duty) released a year later. A small refresh for 2003 models was introduced in 2002, bringing slight design changes and an upgrade to the audio and HVAC controls. The later 2007.5 GMT800 production unit used the name Classic to denote the difference between the first and second generation trucks.

Development[edit]

In January 1993, GM began development on the GMT800 pickup program with numerous teams coming together. By the end of 1994, a final design was chosen and finalized for production in June 1995 at 36 months ahead of scheduled start in June 1998. Development sign-off was issued in late 1997, with pre-production and series production commencement in June 1998.[3][4]

Light duty[edit]

There are a number of models of light-duty Silverados and Sierras, including the half-ton, SS, and Hybrid.

The light-duty trucks use the 1500 name. They are available in three cab lengths, 2-door standard/regular cab, 3 or 4-door extended cab, and front-hinged 4-door crew cab. Three cargo beds are available: a 69.2 in (1,758 mm) short box, 78.7 in (1,999 mm) standard box, and a 97.6 in (2,479 mm) long box. The short box is only available with the crew cab and extended cab.

For the first year, only the regular cab and a 3-door extended cab were available, along with the Vortec 4300V6, Vortec 4800V8, and the Vortec 5300 V8. In 2000, a driver's side door option became available for the extended cab, giving it four doors, and the crew-cab body was added to the lineup in 2004. Output on the 5.3 L engine also increased to 285 hp (213 kW) and 325 lb⋅ft (441 N⋅m).

The 6.0 L Vortec 6000 V8 was standard on the 2500 and was added for the 2001 Heavy Duty models, rated at 300 hp (224 kW), with the GMC Sierra 1500 C3 getting an uprated 325 hp (242 kW) version of this engine. The Silverado Z71 got an optional lighter composite box, with a suspension package for towing, but lacked the high-output engine. The C3 became the Denali for 2002, and Quadrasteer was added.

GM introduced a reworked version of the Silverado and Sierra in 2003, with a new front end and a slightly updated rear end. In 2006 the Silverado received another facelift, similar to the HD version introduced in 2005 HD models. In addition to that, Chevrolet has deleted the "Chevrolet" badge off the tailgate that was used from 1998 to 2005. Its SUV counterparts retained the use of the pre-facelift sheetmetal. During the 2005 model year, all light-duty GMT800 pickups reverted to front disc/rear drum brakes as a cost-cutting measure; heavy duty trucks and the SUVs retained their 4-wheel disc brakes.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Silverado an overall "marginal" score on the frontal offset crash test for poor structural integrity and poor dummy control, although no injuries were recorded on the dummy's body regions.[5]

2001 GMC Sierra C3/Denali[edit]

Sierra Denali with Quadrasteer

GMC created an upscale version of its Sierra 1500 in 2001 called the Sierra C3. It used all-wheel drive with a 3.73 final drive gear ratio and included the 6.0 L Vortec 6000 LQ4 V8 rated at 325 hp (242 kW) at 5000 rpm and 370 lb•ft (502 N·m) of torque at 4000 rpm coupled to a 4L60E-HD four-speed automatic transmission along with other upscale equipment. For 2002, the name was changed to Sierra Denali, but the specifications remained essentially the same except for the addition of Quadrasteer and GM changed from the 4L60E-HD to the 4L65E in conjunction with a 4.10 final drive gear ratio.

The Denali is rated for towing 9,100 pounds (4,100 kg) and hauling 1,595 pounds (723 kg) in the cargo box.

The Sierra Denali was initially equipped with Delphi's Quadrasteer system as standard equipment. It was a 4-wheel steering system that greatly reduced the truck's turning radius and improved lane changing while towing. General Motors dropped Quadrasteer from the Sierra Denali after the 2004 model year and its entire lineup after 2005 due to poor sales of this expensive option.[6]

Chevrolet Silverado SS[edit]

Launched in early 2003, the Silverado SS is a high-performance pickup truck built by Chevrolet. It is based on the 1500 Silverado Extended Cab with Fleetside Box and features upgrades in the drive train and both exterior and interior appearance. It was equipped standard with the 6.0 liter Vortec High-OutputV8 rated at 345 hp (257 kW) at 5200 rpm and 380 lb⋅ft (515 N⋅m) of torque at 4000 rpm coupled to a 4L65E four-speed automatic transmission. This was the same engine used for the second generation Cadillac Escalade. Chevrolet and GMC advertised this engine as the Vortec High Output and later as the "VortecMAX", while Cadillac calls it the "HO 6000". The SS debuted in 2003 with a standard All Wheel Drive setup with a 4.10 final drive gear ratio and 4 wheel disc brakes. In 2005, in an attempt to increase sales, a 2-wheel drive version became available (the 2WD SS also lost its rear disc brakes in favor of drums, as did the rest of the 1/2-ton GMT800s). 2005 was also the first year the sunroof was available in the SS line up. In 2006, the AWD variant was dropped and the rear wheel drive was the only driveline layout available. In a further effort to reduce cost, buyers could also choose cloth interior and/or a bench seat. The Silverado SS also comes with the Z60 performance suspension and 20 inch aluminum wheels. All the SS trucks in both 2 wheel drive and AWD used the torsion bar style front suspension for better handling. SS themed trucks were only available from the factory in Black Onyx, Victory Red, and Arrival Blue Metallic from 2003 to 2004. In 2005, Arrival Blue Metallic was dropped from the color choices and replaced with Silver Birch Metallic.

Intimidator SS[edit]

In 2006, Chevrolet released a special edition Silverado SS under the name "Intimidator SS" (licensed by Dale Earnhardt, Inc.) to honor the late Dale Earnhardt. The truck came with several minor appearance upgrades (rear spoiler, embroidered headrests, Intimidator custom badging), but was essentially a standard Silverado SS. Of the 1,033 scheduled trucks, only 933 were made (the remaining 100 were sold as 2007 Silverado SS "classic" body style trucks before the 2007.5 MY changeover. These trucks were only available in Black Onyx exterior but could be ordered with cloth or leather interior. Also features[7]-

Vortec High Output/Vortec Max[edit]

2004 GMC Sierra with VHO package

The Vortec High Output option was first introduced in 2004 to a limited market (mainly consisting of Texas and several surrounding areas); it was available nationwide for MY 2005. It was available for both the Chevy and GMC 1500 series trucks. This special edition package (under option code B4V) included several options previously not found on the standard 1500 model, most notably the LQ9 6.0 L V-8 engine (the same used for the Silverado SS, the 2005–2006 GMC Denalis and the Cadillac Escalade). The LQ9 motor was rated at 345 hp (257 kW) at 5200 rpm and 380 lb⋅ft (515 N⋅m) of torque at 4000 rpm, which was the same specifications shared in the SS models. The B4V package could only be ordered on extended cab standard box 2WD trucks. They were all built at the Canadian assembly plant and were equipped with the Z60 High Performance suspension package, in addition to the M32 = 4L65E transmission, GT4 = 3.73 rear gear, and G80 Gov Lock as standard equipment. The 2004 models were equipped with the standard 10 bolt 8.625 rear end. The 2005 models were upgraded with the larger 14 bolt 9.5 rear end under RPO option AXN. The package also included one style of the newly introduced GM 20 inch wheels installed from the factory. This marked the first time the LQ9 engine was available for a two-wheel drive application. Unlike the previous years with the SS Package, interior choices ranged from basic cloth to fully loaded. There were also more exterior color options available with this package.

In 2006, the Vortec Max trailering package became available. The Vortec Max package was added to the option list with an array of similar features and new badges, and at its core retained the LQ9/4L65-E powertrain. However, the Vortec Max package differed from the Performance edition in that it also came with a variant of the Z85 Handling/Trailering suspension, as well as 17-inch wheels and tires under the option code NHT (and was available on 4x4 models in addition to 4x2 trucks) versus the Z60 High Performance Suspension and 20-inch wheel and tire package of the regular B4V (which was limited to 2 wheel drive trucks). This was because the Vortec Max package was intended for max trailer towing, while the Performance Edition was intended more for customers who wanted the Silverado SS mechanicals without the visuals of the SS. It was also made available (in addition to the extended cab) in the light-duty 4-door crew cab models. Towing capacity with the VortecMax Trailing package was 10,800 pounds.[8]

Hybrid[edit]

The engine compartment of a 2006 GMC Sierra Hybrid

GM launched a hybrid version of the Silverado/Sierra in 2004, becoming the first ever GM hybrid passenger vehicle. Known within GM as the Parallel Hybrid Truck or PHT, it is not actually a parallel hybrid by the current definition, but a type of micro hybrid design. The electric motor housed within the transmission flywheel housing, serves only to provide engine cranking/starting, battery charging, and powering accessories. The engine automatically shuts down as the truck comes to a stop and uses 42 Volt electric power to the starter/generator unit to restart the engine as the brake pedal is released. Besides the typical 12 V automotive battery the PHT uses three additional 14 V valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries mounted under the rear seat to store and provide power. The truck uses a 5.3 L Vortec 5300V8 for primary propulsion power. These trucks were also purchased back from customers for more than what they were worth in the late 2000s.

The PHT features four 120 volt 20 amp AC outlets, two in the bed and two inside the cab under the rear seat. These are particularly interesting to the building/construction contractor market, since they often require AC power when on the job. Additionally, the extra reserves of power for the accessories make this truck well-suited to that market, where trucks often sit at idle for hours at a time.

Availability was extremely limited at first, with commercial buyers getting the first allotment. Later in 2005, the truck was offered at retail in Alaska, California, Florida, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Canada. For 2006–07 the truck was generally available to retail buyers throughout North America. The Parallel Hybrid Truck was discontinued for the 2008 model year with the release of the GMT900 truck line. Starting in 2009, General Motors offers a second generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra equipped with a Two-Mode Hybrid powertrain and CVT.[9]

The HD variant was a heavy-duty light truck. It was a strengthened version of the Silverado/Sierra light-duty, and was available in the 1500HD, 2500HD, and 3500HD models. The 1500HD, introduced in 2000, offered a Vortec 6000V8 with 300 hp (224 kW) at 5200 rpm and 360 lb⋅ft (488 N⋅m) of torque at 4000 rpm with a Hydra-Matic 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission. The 2500HD also offered the LB7 Duramax V8 with 300 hp (224 kW) at 3100 rpm and 520 lb⋅ft (705 N⋅m) of torque at 1800 rpm, the LLY Duramax V8 with 310 hp (231 kW) at 3000 rpm and 605 lb·ft (820 N·m) at 1600 rpm, and the LBZ Duramax V8 with 360 hp (268 kW) at 3200 rpm and 650 lb·ft (881 N·m) at 1600 rpm. Also available was the Vortec 8100 V8 with 340 hp (254 kW) at 4200 rpm and 455 lb⋅ft (617 N⋅m) of torque at 3200 rpm.

The 2500HD had an available five-speed (six-speed for 2006–2007 models) Allison 1000 transmission with the Vortec 8100 and Duramax 6.6. The Silverado 3500 offered the same engine/transmission features that the 2500HD, however it was usually equipped with "dually" twin wheels at the rear and had a stronger suspension. The HD models were primarily used for towing and high-weight cargo. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD came in at #2 in a 2016 study by iSeeCars.com ranking the top 10 longest-lasting vehicles. The Silverado 2500HD had 5.7% of vehicles over 200,000 miles, according to the iSeeCars study.:[10])

For 2002, GMC introduced a new limited edition Sierra Professional. Built as either a 1500 or 2500HD Extended Cab Standard Box model with two and four-wheel-drive, the Professional was the ultimate contractors truck. The center console area provided an area to store PDAs, cell phones and laptop computers as well as extra charging points for them and an area to hang file folders. There were also extra storage trays and larger cupholders throughout the cab, including one temperature controlled cupholder. The exterior featured lower body cladding, Professional badging, and a full-chrome grille. These trucks also featured a standard bedliner, box-rail protectors, in-bed power outlet, and many optional accessories suited to tradesmen (ladder racks, toolboxes, etc.). The 1500 series came standard with the 5.3L Vortec 5300 V8, but the 4.8L V8 could be ordered with an option credit if so desired. 2500HD models came with the 6.0L Vortec 6000 V8 only. All trucks had the four-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode. Customers could choose from either SLE or SLT decor. The base price for a 2002 1500 2WD with SLE decor was $29,591. 2003 was the final year the Professional was offered.[11]

Towing capacity for the 1500HD is rated at 10,300 pounds (4,700 kg) and can haul 3,129 pounds (1,419 kg) in the bed depending on options. Towing capacity for the 2500HD is rated at 16,100 pounds (7,300 kg) with the gasoline 8.1L V8 with 3.73:1 rear and can haul 3,964 pounds (1,798 kg) in the bed depending on options. Towing capacity for the 3500HD is rated at 16,700 pounds (7,600 kg) and can haul 5,753 pounds (2,610 kg) in the bed depending on options. The addition of 4 wheel drive tends to reduce the towing and carrying capacity by 200 to 400 lb (181 kg), depending upon year and model. Other factors, such as options, can also affect these numbers.

The all-new GMT900 generation of the Silverado/Sierra arrived in the last quarter of 2006 as a 2007 model. It features a redesigned exterior, interior, frame, and suspension as well as power increases on certain engines. It takes styling cues from the 2007 GMT900 SUVs and the Chevrolet Colorado pickups. Like the GMT900 SUVs, these pickups also have greatly improved aerodynamics over their predecessors like steeply raked windshields and tighter panel gaps which improve fuel economy. The GMT800 models were continued through 2007 badged as "Classic", just as the GMT400 models continued for two years after the GMT800's introduction.

The new Silverado earned the North American Truck of the Year award for 2007 and was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year for 2007. Like its predecessors, the new Silverado offers buyers a choice of two-door regular cabs, four-door extended cabs (with front-opening rear doors that now open 170 degrees similar to the Nissan Titan) and four-door crew cabs. GM also offers the trucks in the traditional two- and four-wheel-drive configurations.

For the 2007 model year, the Sierra Denali shares the same billet grille from the other Denali models, and also has the same dash as the 2007 SUV's. The 2007 Sierra Denali was initially the only half-ton pickup that had a 6.2L engine with 403 hp (301 kW) and 417 lb⋅ft (565 N⋅m) of torque coupled to a six-speed transmission. This truck is also an optional all-wheel-drive vehicle and goes 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 6.3 seconds.

The Generation III small block V8 engines offered in the GMT800 trucks were replaced in the GMT900 series by the Generation IV small block V8 engine family, featuring upgrades such as increased power and Active Fuel Management on the 5.3 L and 6.0 L V8s. A new high performance 6.2 liter V8 (with 403 hp (301 kW) and 417 lb⋅ft (565 N⋅m) of torque) was introduced with the 2007 Cadillac Escalade and 2007 GMC Denali line, and was made available in the Silverado 1500 for MY 2009.

After skipping the 2008 model year, with 2007 being the last for the GMT800 hybrid line, a two-mode hybrid model was introduced in late 2008 as a 2009 model. General Motors discontinued the Silverado Hybrid due to poor sales along with the GMC Sierra Hybrid, Chevy Avalanche, Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, GMC Yukon Hybrid, Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, and Cadillac Escalade EXT after the 2013 model year even though it was the one of the two first hybrid pickup trucks ever manufactured.[17] Available in either two- or four-wheel-drive, the Sierra 1500 Hybrid is powered by a 6.0-liter V8. It's joined by two 60-kilowatt electric motors supplied by a nickel–metal hydride battery pack under the rear seat. On its own, the V8 is rated at 332 horsepower and 367 pound-feet of torque. GM engineers say that combined output with the electric motors is 379 hp. The unique transmission houses the electric motors along with three different planetary gear sets and four traditional clutches.[18]

There were two dash options offered in this model Silverado and Sierra: a luxury-inspired dash that closely mimics the dash in their GMT900 SUVs, and a more traditional upright dash to make room for a passenger seat in place of a center console.

As of 2008, GM full-size trucks were no longer sold in United States and Canada with manual transmissions; they were only offered in Mexico in the Silverado 1500 V6 engine and Silverado 3500.[19]

All Silverado & Sierra 1/2-ton models received a revised bumper and shortened front fascia for the 2009 model year, and extended and crew cab models equipped with the Vortec 5300 V8 received a new six-speed 6L80 automatic transmission. The Vortec 6200 V8 was made available for LTZ and SLT models. Bluetooth was added to the equipment list, becoming standard on Denali, SLT, and LTZ and optional on SLE and LT, as was an optional rear vision camera. An integrated trailer brake controller, first available on the Silverado and Sierra HD for 2007, is now an option on 1500 series trucks. The XFE package was new for 2009, available only on Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LT 2 wheel drive models, it included the 5.3L Vortec V8, soft tonneau cover, aluminum wheels, and low rolling resistance tires.

A refresh followed with all 2010 models, including new interior door panels (which moved the handle forward and added an additional cup holder) and a six-speed automatic transmission on regular cab models with the 5.3L V8 was also made standard. The Vortec 6200 V8 was given wider availability, now being optional on LT and SLE extended and crew cabs, completely supplanting the light-duty Vortec 6000 V8 in the process. The new Z71 Appearance Package was optional on LT and LTZ, it included: body-color grille and front fascia, body color door handles and mirror caps, unique Z71 box side decals, chrome sill plates, and a unique Z71 gauge cluster. Two new exterior colors were added: Taupe Gray Metallic and Sheer Silver Metallic.

For 2012, the Sierra and Silverado 1500 received another refresh. This time the Silverado was given new grille and front fascia treatments for both LT and LTZ models. A newly redesigned touch-screen navigation radio was optional on LTZ, SLT, and Denali. Trailer sway control and hill start assist are now standard on all models. Cooled seats were made optional on LTZ and SLT and the woodgrain trim was replaced with brushed aluminum.

The 8.1 L big-block V8 is no longer offered on the Heavy Duty models, and no replacement has been announced. The 6L90 6-speed automatic transmission is standard in all Heavy Duty models. The Allison 1000 transmission is paired with the optional Duramax V8 diesel.

As of 2011 the GMC and Chevrolet Heavy Duty models have being upgraded with a new fully boxed high strength steel frame from front to rear improving stiffness by 92% with bigger rear springs, larger engine and transmission mounts and new hydraulic body mounts to improve the ride. The front suspension incorporates new upper and lower control arms and new torsion bars tailored to one of five different gross axle weight ratings. Upper control arms are constructed from forged steel that is both stronger and lighter than the previous arms, while the new lower arms are cast iron to maximize load capacity. Using a unique torsion bar for each gross weight rating allows for better control over vehicle height, resulting in improved handling and better alignment for reduced tire wear. These improvements allow for up to a 6,000 pound front axle weight rating, allowing all 4wd trucks to accommodate a snow plow.

Additional front suspension enhancements come from new urethane bump stops, two per side. The upper shock mount has been changed from a single stem mount to a two-bolt design to eliminate the possibility of squeaks and thumps.

The rear suspension design uses asymmetrical leaf springs that are wider and capable of greater load handling. The design features 3-inch wide leaves, with front and rear spring sections of different lengths to reduce the twisting that can result in axle hop and loss of traction. The 2500HD uses a two-stage design with a rating of 6,200 lb (2,812 kg), and 3500HD models have a three-stage design with 7,050 lb (3,198 kg) and 9,375 lb (4,252 kg) ratings on single and dual-wheel models, respectively.

Production location switch[edit]

For the 2011 model year of the Silverado/Sierra, the production of 1500 crew cab models partially moved from Silao, Mexico to Flint, Michigan.[20]

Safety[edit]

The Silverado comes standard with four-wheel ABS. StabiliTrak and side curtain airbags are optional on certain trim levels.

2007 NHTSA crash test:[21]

The IIHS gave the Silverado a "Good" score in their frontal crash test, however 2007-09 models equipped with or without optional side curtain airbags received a "Poor" rating in the side impact test.[5] For 2010 models the side structure was strengthened, side torso air bags were added, and side airbags became standard, with the upgrades the IIHS side impact overall rating improved to "Acceptable", while the overall side structure rating is improved from "Poor" to "Acceptable".[22] The crew cab variant of the 2011-13 Silverado is also rated "Marginal" in the IIHS roof strength test.[23]

Electric version[edit]

In 2011 developer of the Chevrolet Volt and former vice chairman Bob Lutz joined VIA Motors in developing electric versions of the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra called VIA VTrux.

2014 Silverado LTZ Crew Cab 4x4

On December 13, 2012, the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, along with the related 2014 GMC Sierra were introduced in Detroit, Michigan, later making their public debut at the North American International Auto Show. GM dropped the 900 platform and changed to K2XX. The third generation Silverado 1500 has three gas engine options: 4.3 L EcoTec3 V6, 5.3 L EcoTec3 V8, or 6.2 L EcoTec3 V8. Chevrolet's MyLink touch-screen multimedia interface system will be available on most models. It will have A2DP stereo streaming technologies, Bluetooth hands-free telephone, USB hookups, and an input for an AppleiPod or iPhone. When connected via the USB port, an iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, or iPhone 6 Plus will be able to stream music from Pandora Radio. A Bose premium audio system, as well as a Bose surround sound audio system will be available on most models. OnStar will be standard on all models.

Underneath, the Silverado rides on a fully boxed high-strength steel frame with hydroforming technology; truck cab's frame is built with high strength steel as well. The third generation Silverado uses aluminum on the hood, for the engine block and for the control arms in order to save mass. The truck's bed is made of roll-formed steel instead of stamped steel used by other manufacturers in order to save weight and gain strength. The third generation Silverado introduced the upmarket High Country edition which includes saddle brown leather interior, which is Chevrolet's first entry into the luxury market. A revised front end features styling cues from the 1980s-era Chevrolet C-Series Trucks, and, on Z-71 models, a Z-71 badge was added to the front grille. The first production Silverado completed assembly on April 29, 2013. The Silverado 1500 went on sale in May 2013 as a 2014 model, with the Silverado HD Series being available in early 2014 for the 2015 model year. On January 10, 2014, a recall was issued for 370,000 Silverado and Sierra pickups due to a fire risk.[29]

The American model version of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500/2500HD/3500HD and the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado High Country was introduced to the Philippines market by Chevrolet Motorama Show late November 2014 as a MY2015, along with the MY2015 Chevrolet Suburban, 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2015 Chevrolet Impala, 2015 Chevrolet Express Van, 2015 Chevrolet Trax and 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.

On January 14, 2014, The Silverado, along with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, received the 2014 North American International Auto Show's Car and Truck of the Year awards.[30]

For 2018, this generation of Silverado was officially exported to Australia and converted to the right-hand-drive and Australian Design Rules (ADR) by General Motors Australian subsidiary, Holden Special Vehicles (HSV). In the past, several independent specialists imported and converted Silverado and GMC Sierra for Australian and right-hand-drive markets. The 2500HD and 3500HD were fitted with 6.6-litre Duramax diesel V8, the sole engine choice for Australia. No 1500 version was offered.[31][32]

2015[edit]

For the 2015 model year, the 6.2L Ecotec3 was paired with the new 8-speed 8L90 transmission, offering a wider ratio spread with more closely spaced gears, quicker shifts, and improved acceleration and fuel economy.[33] The Silverado 2500/3500 HD models continue to use the 6.0L L96 flex fuel capable Vortec engine combined with the 6l90e transmission, installed with engine oil and transmission fluid coolers for hauling/towing applications. The 6.6L Duramax continued to be backed by the 6-speed Allison 1000 automatic.[27][34]

The GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD were the first "heavy-duty" trucks to offer an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), a Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS), and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) available together as part of the available Driver Assist Package. The Driver Assist Package was standard equipment on the GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Denali, and optional on most other Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/3500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD models. Other new options for the Silverado and Sierra 2500HD/3500HD models included an eight-inch, full-color, reconfigurable LCD Driver Information Center (DIC) screen (for Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Denali models only), a 110-Volt AC household-style power outlet, up to six available USB ports, an available eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a power-sliding rear window with integrated defroster

In midyear 2015, Chevrolet and GMC made enhancements to the all-new Silverado 2500HD/3500HD and Sierra 2500HD/3500HD. Some of these enhancements included a new OnStartelematics system with 4GLTE Wi-Fi capabilities, new wheel designs, new exterior paint color options, new exterior tow mirror designs, a USB port added the glove compartment of trucks equipped with a front bench seat, DURALIFE brake rotors, the availability of dual 150 and 220 amp alternators for models equipped with the 6.6L Duramax Turbodiesel V8 engine, an off-road information screen added to the instrument cluster of 4X4 models equipped with the Z/71 or All-Terrain Packages (the latter is a GMC-only option), a Bi-Fi Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) option for models equipped with the 6.0L Vortec gasoline V8 engine, a new All-Terrain Package available on SLE and SLT Double Cab and Crew Cab models (for GMC models only), a standard heavy-duty locking rear axle for all models, and the removal of HD Radio from the "up-level" IO5 and IO6 infotainment systems. A Regular Production Option (RPO) Code of "AVF" in the upper glove compartment distinguishes early-build 2015 models from their 2015.5 successors.[35]

Special Editions[edit]

For 2015, Chevrolet introduced Special Edition for the Silverado truck series. They are in the following series of Rally Edition 1 and 2, Midnight Edition, Custom Sport Edition, Custom Sport Plus Edition, Black Out Edition, and Texas Edition.[36]

2016 facelift[edit]

2016 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Z71
2017 Chevrolet Silverado LT rear

For 2016, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 received its first mid-cycle refresh. The refreshed Silverado and Sierra received a new grille, new headlights and new front fascia, with design influences from the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, as well as all-new LED tail lights on the 2016 Silverado LTZ and High Country, 2016 GMC Sierra SLT and Denali trim levels while the 2016 Chevy Silverado LT trim levels and below still have the pre-facelifted incandescent taillights along with the 2016 GMC Sierra SLE trim levels and below. Silverado 1500 LTZ and High Country, as well as Sierra 1500 SLT and Denali models equipped with LED headlights, can be optioned with the Intellibeam high-beam assist system. On October 1, 2015, HD Radio was added to the Silverado, Sierra, and their HD level models. The Silverado/Silverado HD will add HD Radio to their 8-inch MyLink system as a standard on the LT and LTZ trims, while the Sierra/Sierra HD will include the feature in its IntelliLink system as a standard on all its trims. 2016 Silverado and Sierra models optioned with the 8-inch touch screen feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Trucks ordered with bucket seats and center console now feature a wireless charging pad on the console lid.[37] New color options for the Silverado include: Iridescent Pearl Tricoat (1500 only), Autumn Bronze Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat and Red Hot. Sierra's new colors include: White Frost Tricoat (1500 only), Mahogany Metallic, Crimson Red Tintcoat and Cardinal Red.

2017[edit]

For the 2017 model year, Silverado and Sierra HD models equipped with the 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 (L5P) received a new front hood with air intake vents. Gasoline-powered models now have a capless fuel fill. Sierra HD now features standard HID headlamps on all trim levels. New colors include Graphite Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic (Chevrolet) or Dark Slate Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic (GMC). Jet Black/Medium Ash Gray interior trim is added for Silverado High Country. Low-Speed Mitigation Braking is added to the Driver Alert Package for both Silverado and Sierra.[38]

All Silverado and Sierra models receive slight changes to their MyLink (Chevrolet) and IntelliLink (GMC) infotainment systems. The interior backlighting on GMC Sierras changes from red to blue. 2017 Silverado and Sierra Double and Crew Cabs also get a few new safety features, including GM's Rear Seat Reminder,[39] and Teen Driver Mode.[40]

eAssist Mild Hybrid[edit]

Starting in 2016, GM offered an eAssistmild hybrid version of the 5.3L V8 engine in the Silverado LT and Sierra SLT, but only in the state of California. The engine came with an 8-speed automatic transmission and has the same horsepower and torque as the regular 5.3 V8.[41] For 2017, it was also available in Hawaii, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. For 2018, it became available nationwide and was also offered in the Silverado LTZ.[42]

Silverado SSV[edit]

In late 2014, Chevrolet released the 2015 Silverado SSV (Special Service Vehicle) to complement its lineup of law enforcement vehicles. The SSV Silverado is available in 1500 Crew Cab form with either the short (5.5') or standard (6.5') cargo box. The 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 is the only engine option, and the truck is based on WT trim. It features beefier brake rotors, upgraded oil coolers, high output alternator, auxiliary battery and an upfitter friendly interior.[43]

Special editions[edit]

GMC[edit]

In 2016, GMC introduced the Sierra All Terrain X, which is equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine with performance exhaust, bumping output up from 355 to 365 horsepower. On the exterior, the Sierra All Terrain X features black 18 inch rims fitted with larger 265/65R18SL Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires, black bed-mounted sport bar, LED off-road lights, and blacked-out accents.[44]

After introducing the Sierra 1500 All Terrain X full-size pickup and the Canyon All Terrain X small pickup, in 2017 GMC extended the same formula to its heavy-duty pickup family with the Sierra HD All Terrain X.

Available on four-wheel drive Sierra 2500 HD crew cab models in either Black Onyx or Summit White exterior colors, the Sierra HD All Terrain X package provides a unique, premium mix of specialized exterior trim and off-road special equipment, uniquely paired with GMC's high-level of refinement and technologies.

All Terrain X's customized appearance starts with a unique body-color grille surround, which flanks a distinctive grille insert that's unique to All Terrain. Body color door handles, front and rear bumpers, and bodyside moldings provide a distinctive monochromatic appearance, while black accents, including belt moldings, front bumper skid plate, and B-pillar accents, enhance its bold attitude.

Sierra HD All Terrain X models also include unique eighteen-inch black-painted aluminum wheels – fitted with rugged LT275/65R18 Goodyear Duratrac MT-rated tires – along with four-inch black sport side steps, black heated and power-folding trailering mirrors with integrated turn signals and LED guidance lamps, a spray-on bedliner, and a distinctive black bed-mounted sport bar, which is designed to support available GMC Accessories LED off-road driving lamps.

Inside, the 2017 Sierra 2500 HD All Terrain X also features GMC IntelliLink with an 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, Teen Driver, remote-locking tailgate, remote starting system, Rear Vision Camera, adjustable pedals, leather-appointed seats, heated front seats and wireless mobile device charging.

Sierra HD All Terrain X's strong, bold appearance is matched by equally strong engineering underneath its surface. A 6.0-liter gasoline engine is standard, but the all-new, next-generation 6.6-liter Duramax Diesel turbo-diesel V-8 is also available. More powerful and refined than ever before, this latest Duramax Diesel delivers 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque – providing plenty of power to trailer with confidence.

For added confidence off-road, the Sierra HD All Terrain X also includes the Z71 off-road suspension package, which adds front underbody and transfer case skid plates, twin-tube Rancho shocks, hill descent control, and off-road information graphics in the Driver Information Center. An Eaton automatically locking rear differential (4.10:1) is also standard equipment.[45]

The system includes a three-piece hard tonneau cover, dual lockable storage bins on each side of the truck bed, and a removable bed divider to keep items separate and from moving around the truck bed while the vehicle is in motion. Avalanche-like plastic fairings were also added to the rear of the cab. The High Desert package was available on both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive LT, LTZ, and High country trim levels. It was not available on LTZ models with the Z71 off-road package. LT models with the High Desert package receive the same LED taillamps as the LTZ, and High Country trims. Magnetic Ride Control is optional on High Country High Desert.

Available only on Crew Cab Short Box LTZ Z71 configuration, the Centennial Edition added Centennial Blue Metallic paint, 22-inch painted-aluminum wheels with chrome inserts and special 100-years Chevrolet Bowtie emblems.[47] In addition to the Centennial Edition, the remaining Silverado Special Editions were virtually unchanged from the last year model.[48][49]

2019 Silverado LD[edit]

Chevrolet continued production of the third-generation Silverado 1500 for 2019, which was sold alongside the all-new, fourth-generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Renamed the Chevrolet Silverado LD ("LD" for Light Duty), production of the previous-generation truck moved from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Oshawa Car Assembly, Ontario, Canada.

GMC also offered versions of their Sierra trucks as the Sierra Classic for 2007 as well, and will do the same for 2019, offering the predecessor generation model as the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited.[51]

On December 16, 2017, Chevrolet unveiled the all-new, fourth-generation 2019 Silverado 1500 at its Chevy Truck Centennial Celebration Weekend at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. The reveal of the all-new Silverado was not expected until early 2018. For its debut, the Silverado 1500 was airlifted via helicopter onto a stage, where it was introduced to a crowd of Chevrolet truck owners and enthusiasts, as well as to the automotive press. Chevrolet NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr also spoke at the event. In addition to the reveal of the 2019 Silverado 1500, multiple Chevrolet trucks of different generations were on display as well.[54]

The model shown at the reveal was the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, which is a factory-modified version of the Silverado 1500 LT Z71. Distinguishing features of the Trail Boss from other Silverado 1500 trim levels are its gloss black front fascia, black rear step bumper, black Chevrolet "bow-tie" emblems on the front grille and rear tailgate, gloss black-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, large off-road tires, altered suspension, "Trail Boss" decals on the sides of the pickup box, front bumper-mounted center fog lamps, "Z71" emblems on each front fender, and red-painted front tow hooks.

The formal unveiling of the Silverado 1500 took place at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan on January 13, 2018, exactly 100 years after Chevrolet delivered its first trucks to customers on January 13, 1918. The model was unveiled as a Silverado LT Trail Boss 4X4 model.

Sales to customers began in August 2018 as an early 2019 model year vehicle with a base price of $32,200 MSRP.[55][56]

The Silverado 1500 features a more sculpted exterior design, with front headlamps that integrate into the front grille, which also incorporate LED Daytime Running Accent Lamps (DRL's).[54]

Silverado 1500 has been launched in Australia for the first time for 2020 model year. Holden Special Vehicles (to be renamed as General Motors Specialty Vehicles for 2021) has started the conversion to right-hand-drive and Australian Design Rules. The 6.2-L V8 engine is the sole engine choice at the launch.[57][58]

Trims[edit]

The Silverado 1500 will be available in eight distinct trim levels: WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country.[59] Two more Silverado trims were exhibited at SEMA 2018[60] with the High Country and LTZ. They include the RST Off Road and RSTStreet which will be added into the Silverado trim lineup.

All trim levels include a next-generation touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth for hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming via A2DP, power windows and door locks (on Double and Crew Cab models), air conditioning, and a rearview backup camera system. Additional features available on select trim levels include GPS navigation, SiriusXMSatellite Radio and Travel Link, OnStar with 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi, a Bose premium audio system with seven speakers, keyless access and push-button start, a remote starter system, heated and ventilated luxury leather-trimmed seating surfaces, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver-assist technologies, a multi-angle camera system, and heated rear seats.

Special Editions[edit]

For 2020, the Rally and Midnight Special Editions return after being absent for the 2019 model year. Rally Edition is available on Silverado Custom and RST trims. The package features black Rally Stripes on the hood and tailgate, black CHEVROLET tailgate lettering, and black assist steps. The Midnight Edition features Bucket Seats with Console, special headlamp bezels, black dual exhaust tips, and black assist steps. The Midnight Edition is only available on the LT Trail Boss trim level.[61]

In January 2020, Chevrolet and Realtree announced the 2021 Silverado 1500 Realtree Edition. This is the second-time Chevrolet and Realtree have teamed up to produce a special edition Silverado truck, having done so for 2016. The 2021 model is based on a Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Custom Trail Boss, adding 20-inch black wheels and Realtree camouflage graphics inside and out.[62]

Engines[edit]

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (and its twin, the GMC Sierra 1500) offers a choice of six different engine options, dependent upon trim level. The base engine on lower trim levels is the 285-horsepower, 4.3L EcoTec3 FlexFuel-Capable V6 gasoline engine. Standard on mid-level trims is an all-new, 310-horsepower, 2.7L Turbocharged Inline Four Cylinder (I4) gasoline engine that is the smallest engine available on a half-ton pickup, and features cylinder deactivation for improved fuel economy. Optional on most trim levels is the 355-horsepower, 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 gasoline engine, which is optionally FlexFuel-Capable, and features either a carryover Active Fuel Management (AFM) system, or a brand new Dynamic Fuel Management system (DFM), which now can shut off up to 6 of 8 cylinders. The availability of either AFM or DFM is dependent on trim level, with WT and Custom trucks available with AFM, and LT and above trucks standard with DFM. Optional on upper-level trims is a 420-horsepower, 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 gasoline engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM). An all-new, 277-horsepower 3.0L Turbocharged I6 Diesel engine is also slated to become available in mid-2019, although availability of this engine has been delayed due to EPA certification. All engines are paired to either a 6-speed, 8-speed, or 10-speed automatic transmission, with a choice of either two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive (4X4 is standard equipment on Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss trims, and optional on all other Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500 models). For 2020, availability of both the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 gasoline engine and the 10-speed automatic transmission will expand to most Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500 trim levels.

According to EPA ratings, rear drive 2019 Silverado models with the 2.7-liter turbo-four engine can achieve 20/23 mpg city/highway.[63]
