The overall look of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Truck is rugged and attractive, with an aerodynamic design that adds to fuel efficiency, not to mention keeping things quiet for passengers in the cab. Color options include black, black granite metallic, victory red, mocha steel metallic, graystone metallic, silver ice metallic, imperial blue metallic, white diamond tricoat, blue granite metallic, and summit white.
At the entry level WT version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Truck, the front seat is covered in dark titanium colored vinyl, and is a 40/20/40 split bench fitting three passengers. The driver information center offers excellent systems monitoring, and the factory sound system is an AM/FM/XM stereo. Upgrading to the LT makes a big difference, as the front seat is cloth in several color options, such as ebony, light titanium, and light cashmere. In addition, the LT stereo gains MP3 compatibility and a CD player.
Other conveniences in the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Truck include power door locks, and windows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with outside temperature readings and a compass, as well as remote keyless entry. Power mirrors that fold and heat are a nice touch in the winter. The interior has large controls for easier manipulation, even when wearing work gloves. Bear in mind that the headlight knob is similar in size and location to the switch that moves the vehicle from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive, making it quite simple to make an error.
All crew and extended cab models include additional seating behind the front row. The crew version offers four front-hinged doors for easy entry and exit, while the extended cab has rear hinges on the back doors. For hauling loads in the regular and extended cab models, the pickup bed can be purchased in short (5' 8"), standard (6' 6") or long (8'). For the crew style cab, only the short bed is available. Those looking to tow must purchase a towing package that provides factory installed equipment to ensure safe hauling.
