Chevy Silverado 1500 Exterior Dimensions

Walk up to the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 and you’ll find an exterior that’s as pleasing to the eye as it is functional.

With three different cabs to choose from, there’s a lot to consider when it comes to the Silverado’s exterior dimensions. Let’s look closer at the cabs and their important exterior dimensions.

Silverado Regular Cab
Silverado Double Cab
Silverado CrewCab

Regular Cab:

  • Length: 229.5 inches
  • Wheelbase: 139.56 inches
  • Height: 75.63 inches
  • Width: 81.14 inches

Double Cab:

  • Length: 231.7 inches
  • Wheelbase: 147.45 to 147.50 inches
  • Height: 75.63 to 78.45 inches
  • Width: 81.24 inches

Crew Cab:

  • Length: 231.70 to 241.21 inches
  • Wheelbase: 147.43 to 156.95 inches
  • Height: 75.35 to 75.49 inches
  • Width: 81.24 inches

While the exterior dimensions are something you’ll need to consider, you’ll also need to pick the right exterior color. From Summit White to Shadow Gray Metallic to Red Hot, there are many options for your Silverado adventures.

With the ability to be long and tall, that means the Silverado 1500 is more adept at handling a lot of extra weight at one time. When properly equipped, the Silverado 1500 has a maximum towing capacity of 13,300 pounds and a maximum payload of 2,280 pounds.

One of the more underrated things about a pickup truck like the Chevy Silverado 1500 is the ability to be higher off the ground than you would be in a sedan or SUV. The front and rear of the Silverado 1500 have a ground clearance of up to 10.88 inches so you can clear smaller objects easier and get the thrill of being high up when you conquer your adventures.


Chevy Silverado 1500 Tire Dimensions

The tires on your Chevy Silverado 1500 are essential to your daily adventures and commutes. The type of tires your vehicle is outfitted with can determine how far you can push the limits of the Silverado 1500, and with lots of different options, you’ll feel like a kid in a candy store. The most common tire size you’ll find on the Silverado is 17 inches.

Some of the specs of these tires include:

  • 255/70R17 all-season blackwall tires
  • 265/70R17 all-terrain blackwall tires

Like most things on the Silverado 1500, you can choose the color of wheels you want. These include Bright Silver, Ultra Silver, and high gloss Black.

The 18-inch tires give you a little more freedom in terms of ability. Like the 17-inch tires, you’ll have all-season blackwall or all-terrain blackwall tires. However, you’ll also have the option to equip the Silverado with all-terrain white outlined-letter tires for a more stylish look.

If you plan on going on muddy roads often, you’ll want to consider the specialty 18-inch LT275/65R18C Mud-Terrain Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTrac® blackwall tires. But, because the treads on these tires are a bit more aggressive, you may experience a higher level of noise while you drive.

Moving up to 20-inch tires will afford you many of the same tires as the 17-inch and 18-inch ones, including the Mud-Terrain Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTrac® tires. The specs are a bit different, though:

  • 275/60R20 all-season blackwall tires
  • LT265/60R20 Mud-Terrain Goodyear® Wrangler Territory® blackwall tires

With the 20-inch wheels, you can have them painted high gloss Black and even choose aluminum-painted machined face wheels with Light Argent pockets or Argent Metallic pockets. Upgrading to 22-inch tires only gives you the 275/50R22SL all-season blackwall tires, but there are lots of ways you can have the wheels painted to give your truck the perfect look.

  • 5-spoke Dark Silver aluminum wheels with Chrome inserts
  • 6-split-spoke Chrome wheels
  • 6-spoke Low Gloss Black wheels with machined accents
  • Carbon Flash Metallic wheels
  • High Gloss Black wheels

Silverado Truck Bed Dimensions

2021 Silverado Bed DimensionsBringing a bunch of mulch home for that weekend project? Need to haul some cargo to the worksite? You need to have the right Silverado truck bed for the ride ahead.

Like the cab choices, you have options when it comes to cargo volume, too. The Long Bed offers 89.1 cubic feet, while the Standard Bed has 71.7 cubic feet and the Short Bed provides 62.9 cubic feet.

Additionally, the cargo box in the truck bed can hold all the equipment you need it to or it can act as an extra storage space for luggage. The standard cargo box length is 69.92 inches, its width is 71.4 inches, and it has height of 22.4 inches. Its width at the wheelhousings is 50.63 inches.

The Silverado Durabed comes with a roll-formed, high-strength steel floor that’s stronger than a traditional stamped steel floor. Simply put, it knows how to handle the rough-and-tumble nature of hauling.

The 12 standard fixed tie-downs, with nine more available removable tie-downs, keep all your cargo safe. With the available bed-mounted 120-volt outlet, you can power a laptop, power tools, and more. It’s all possible from your truck’s bed.
