The Chevy Silverado has always been known around Detroit for its rugged performance and exceptional utility, and the 2019 Silverado 1500 Durabed brings this popular pickup to an entirely new level. With its best-in-class cargo volume, the Durabed is the largest pickup truck bed on the market. That means that whether you need your new Silverado for work or for play, the latest model can handle all of your equipment and gear with ease. Take a look at the Silverado 1500 specs with Bowman Chevy!

Durabed Truck Bed

For the 2019 model year, Chevy’s team of engineers sought to maximize the utility of the pickup truck bed. The result was the new standard Durabed, constructed with high-strength steel that clocks in at 500 megapascals. Standard features include enlarged cutouts and CornerStep bumpers for better functionality, but this pickup truck bed can also be outfitted with tons of optional features to make your trip a little easier. Add technology like in-bed LED lighting and a 110/120-volt power outlet, or take a look at the Chevy Silverado accessories at the shop for additional customization.

Are You and Your Off-Road Truck Ready for Action?

Colorado with Bikes in back

Owning an off-road truck is adventurous and exciting, but a few key tips will get you ready to roll safely and without damaging your truck.

Off-Road Driving

Know Your Vehicle’s Capabilities

Study up on your traction control, 4WD high and low systems, and locking differential. You need to understand when you need more torque, more speed, and your wheels spinning at the same rate.

Check Your Tires

Are you going to be driving in muddy, sandy, or rocky terrain? Double check with the experts to make sure your tires will give you the right traction and when you’ll need to adjust your traction control setting. And if you plan on water fording, assess the situation first. Know how deep it is and what’s underneath the surface.

Be Prepared

Carry some basics, like water, food, a fire extinguisher, snatch straps, tow strap, winch, snorkel, and a first aid kit. Think your game plan through, and stock up on what you might need if you need to recover from a tough situation.
