The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado HD benefits from one key characteristic: it’s a big, powerful, heavy-duty pickup. Factoring utility into the equation, this truck scores 7 out of 10 for quality, with points for its people and cargo potential. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
As with most of its competitors, the Silverado HD is available in three cab configurations, two powertrains, two drivetrains, and two bed sizes, not to mention 2500 and “dually” 3500 for different hauling needs.
The bottom line: The Silverado HD range boils down to a short 6-foot-6 or an 8-foot long bed; two-door regular or four-door regular or crew cab; single- or dual-rear wheel in 3500 HD models.
Regular cab trucks can accommodate two or three people, depending on the bench seat style. Double cabs have short rear bench seats that can seat adults for short trips, so long as the front passengers are willing to trade for some leg room. Crew cab models get more than 40 inches of leg room in the back, perfect for small crews headed to the work site.
Base WT (Work Truck) Silverado HDs get vinyl upholstery and basically no creature comforts besides a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system–this truck is solely meant for commercial and fleet use.
Stepping up to the LT trim adds durable cloth seats and not much else, while LTZ models get heated front leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a remote starter, an integrated trailer brake controller, 110-volt power outlet, a power-sliding rear window, and chrome trim across the exterior.
The top-tier High Country trim adds 20-inch wheels, body-color bumpers, upgraded leather, heated and ventilated front seats, a spray-in bedliner, and a Bose audio system, but is only available in short box crew cab configuration.
