Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Technology/Features

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 comes in three different door and bed configurations to match your needs for your individual lifestyle in Goshen. There is a crew cab, a double cab, and a regular cab. As one would expect, the regular cab is simply a two-door cab that is not extended. The regular cab comes with a standard or long bed. The crew cab has four full-sized doors and passenger space and has a short or standard bed length. The double cab also has four doors, but the rear doors and cab area are slightly shorter. The double cab's bed comes in a standard or long size.

Standard for the bed of the Silverado 1500 is that it has 12 tie-downs. An available feature of the tailgate of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is that it can conveniently move and fold into six different configurations. One configuration allows the gate to become a step to allow you to reach further inside the bed. Another configuration has the inner portion of the tailgate turn into a work surface. Also available is a power tailgate feature.

Available with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's High Country model is a semi-autonomous driving mode. It allows you to drive hands-free on designated divided highways. This feature is available even when towing a trailer. There is either a 12- or 13-inch multimedia screen that is a part of the dashboard to help cut down on distractions. The multimedia screen has available compatibility with Google built in. That helps you get up to speed with your new multimedia system's features quickly.

Trailering technology features include:

  • Eight available cameras to see every angle around your Silverado
