New Silervado 1500 Dubbed "The Durabed" For Insane Truck Bed Improvements
Chevy dealerships across the country are buzzing with excitement over the latest news out of Chevrolet headquarters: The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is getting more pickup bed space and flexibility than ever before. The new truck has been dubbed “The Durabed” and is already gaining a reputation for–you guessed it–its exceptional durability.
The new Silverado 1500’s bed will have the highest cargo volume, box complexity and box length at its floor that we’ve seen in any Silverado pickup. The bed will also feature 12 fixed tie-downs and an exclusive power tailgate.
“The bed is the heart and soul of any pickup, so we made several improvements to the bed of the all-new Silverado to give our customers an even better hauling experience,” Tim Herrick, GM executive chief engineer, said in a recent statement.
“Truck customers value capability and functionality above all else. Every truck–including the luxurious High Country–is a work truck with a job to do. As such, we set out to create the best tool for the job at hand, one that makes work more productive and enjoyable, no matter what they call ‘work,’” he explained.
“We’ve added so many features and benefits that it deserves its own name–Durabed,” Herrick continued.
The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 “Durabed” truck is basically every truck lover’s dream: the truck’s short and standard box options are an astonishing 10-cubic feet bigger than the 2018 model’s cargo box space. The Silverado Short Box clocks in at 63-cubic feet, while the Standard Box is 73-cubic feet.
Still not enough? The Silverado Large Box is the one for you, with a monster-sized cargo space which comes in at 89-cubic feet.
But the new Silverado doesn’t just excel when it comes to size. The truck’s bed also boasts insane volume upgrades unlike any you’ll find at a car dealership near you.
The Short Box’s volume is 20 percent larger than the previous model. Plus, the Durabed is composed of higher-grade steel than you’ve seen before at your local Chevy dealer. The higher-quality steel means the Durabed will be super strong and super capable of handling whatever you throw at it (or in it).
And if tie-downs are a major concern to you, the new Silverado also has you covered. The truck’s tie-downs have been improved and will now be positioned at varying heights. Nine moveable tie points are available inside the truck’s bed for added cargo flexibility and each tie-down is capable of handling 500 pounds of force before bending.
