2021 Chevy Silverado Interior

The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is known for its towing capability, making it the perfect heavy-duty pickup to own in Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township, PA. The Baierl Chevrolet sales team goes inside the Silverado to take a closer look at the seats, the tech features, and the other cabin comforts you’ll have access to.

See how this truck can be the perfect fit for your lifestyle, whether it’s being used for work or leisure.


Chevy Silverado SeatingThere’s space for up to three people inside the Regular Cab models, while the Double Cab and the Crew Cab models seat up to six. Upgrading to the front bucket seats is an option, although it will drop the seating capacity by one passenger. The front seats have been raised over an inch from previous Silverado models for a clearer view of the road.

You can customize your truck’s interior, depending on which Silverado trim level you choose. Whether you’re sitting on the cloth of the LT trim or the perforated leather of the LTZ trim, the attention to detail makes the Silverado 1500 a comfortable and quality truck.

Riders seated in the back seats will stay comfortable in the Double Cab and the Crew Cab models, with rear air vents keeping things warm or cool. The available front outboard heated seats keep things toasty even on those bone-chilling winter days. When everyone wants to keep the temperature at their preferred level, you can use the standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control feature.

A 10-way power driver seat with power lumbar control is an available feature on the Silverado, providing you with numerous ways to customize your drive and how you’ll feel. The front passenger isn’t forgotten, either, with an available 10-way power seat there too.

Another available feature you’ll love is the driver memory, which can remember two different preset driver seat configurations. With the press of a button, it can adjust to a setting without you having to do anything else. This also applies to the outside mirrors, which is especially helpful when you’re towing something.


One of the main reasons people buy or lease a Chevy Silverado is to use it for towing. That makes sense, with the Silverado’s maximum towing capability of 13,300 pounds when properly equipped. If that sounds right up your alley, you might want to know about some of the trailering technology found inside the Chevy Silverado.

Choose Hitch Guidance on the Rear Vision Camera screen and the Hitch View will help you zoom in on the hitch for a view from the top, making it easier to hook up the trailer. The available trailer theft-deterrence technology is nice to have too. If the harness is disconnected on the trailer, the lights will flash and the horn will sound.

Out on the road with a trailer in tow? You usually will check the mirrors before making that next maneuver. Now, you can do it more confidently. The available Trailering Camera Package integrates cameras into the side-view mirrors to help eliminate blind spots, so you’re able to change lanes with confidence.

Speaking of cameras, one of the things that makes the Silverado 1500 so unique is its ability to have up to 15 cameras placed all over the vehicle. Combined with the Advanced Trailering System, you can see your trailer at all times and keep up with its diagnostics and tire pressure.

Other trailering technology features you’ll want to use at different points include:

  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Auto Grade Braking
  • Trailer theft alert
  • Brake gain memory


Technology inside the 2021 SilveradoOutside of the trailering tech found in the Silverado, there’s plenty of other tech you’ll use on every drive. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration allows you to connect with some of your top phone features on the standard 7-inch touchscreen. Whether you’re reading a text message or selecting a new song from a saved playlist, it will take just a few taps on the touchscreen to do it.

In older vehicles, if you were to stream your music or your podcasts, you’d have to use your phone’s data. However, when you opt for the Chevy Silverado 1500, you’ll find that those days are a thing of the past. There is a 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot built into the truck, which can connect multiple devices at one time.

See all essential vehicle information, including warning messages, with a 3.5-inch diagonal monochromatic Driver Information Center. There’s also available 4.2-inch and 8-inch displays. These systems are fully customizable to show only the information you want at any time.

For those about to rock, the Chevy Silverado 1500 salutes you, with multiple intuitive speaker systems. There is the powerful 2-speaker system in the Silverado trims that fit three people, which has the speakers placed in the front of the vehicle. There’s also the 6-speaker system, which has speakers placed all over the vehicle for more of a surround sound.

To really give your music that umph it deserves, the available Bose® 7-speaker Premium Sound System comes with a Richbass® woofer that enhances the quality of the entire setup. Meanwhile, the acoustic panels in the seatbacks dampen noise to create a quiet, welcoming cabin.

The available Head-Up Display is another helpful feature, keeping you up to date on important vehicle information without having to look away from the road. The 15-inch diagonal display projects vehicle speed and other information onto the windshield, so you’re able to focus on the road ahead.

HD Surround Vision, an available Silverado feature, expands on the standard rearview camera. With this camera technology, you’ll benefit from having an overhead bird’s-eye view of what’s happening around the truck, right on the infotainment screen. This helps you pull into a parking space and avoid objects when traveling at low speeds.


As you’re considering a truck for both work and play, you’ll want to make sure you’ve selected the right one. In fact, your comfort—and therefore, your happiness—may depend on the Silverado 1500 dimensions.

Here are the key dimensions you’ll need to know for the Silverado 1500 Double Cab:

  • Headroom (front/rear): 43.03 inches/39.88 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 44.53 inches/35.24 inches
  • Shoulder room (front/rear): 66.02 inches/64.88 inches
  • Hip room (front/rear): 61.18 inches/60.24 inches

Here are the dimensions for the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab:

  • Headroom (front/rear): 43.03 inches/40.12 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 44.53 inches/43.4 inches
  • Shoulder room (front/rear): 66.02 inches/65.16 inches
  • Hip room (front/rear): 61.18 inches/60.24 inches

Cargo volume? That’s something you’ll have to consider, too, as you’ll want to have enough room for all your important cargo. Whether you’re carrying work tools from Monday to Friday or you’re throwing in hiking gear for a weekend getaway, the long bed gives you 89.1 cubic feet of space, the standard bed 71.7 cubic feet, and the short bed 62.9 cubic feet.


If you’re driving a truck, you’ll want to have as much room to store items as possible. Whether it’s work equipment, stuff for the kids, or something else, the Silverado 1500 has plenty of interior storage space. The rear seats can open up to reveal available storage compartments. You’ll also have access to rear under-seat storage.

There is extra storage available in the upgraded center console, if you need it. For even more space, the front bench seats have 40/20/40 splits, which also have armrest storage and under-seat storage. This can create more cargo room, if you have luggage you need to store or items for a job. The rear bench seats have a 60/40 split as well.

The cargo box is another method of storage you can use to keep work equipment or other items organized. In the Crew Cab models, the cargo box has a length of 69.92 inches, a width of 71.4 inches, and a height of 22.4 inches.

The Regular Cab models have the same width and height as the Crew Cabs but the cargo box is 98.18 inches in length. The Double Cab models have a cargo box length of 79.44 inches.


When you think of the phrase “interior design,” the first thing that may come to mind is your home—or perhaps a reality show on your favorite TV channel. However, Chevrolet engineers have taken great care to focus on the Silverado interior design experience.

For the latest Silverado, front seating has been raised by a little over an inch for a better view of the road ahead. In the Double Cab and the Crew Cab models, rear-seat heating and cooling vents come standard, so passengers in the second row are just as comfortable as you are in the front seat.
