  • Long Bed: 8 feet, 2 inches
  • Standard Bed: 6 feet, 7 inches

In what follows, we’ll take a closer look at each of the truck bed sizes seen above. We’ll also discuss the availability of each option, so you can configure your pickup without worrying that you’ve missed out.

What is the bed size of a Chevy Silverado? The three Silverado bed sizes provide between 62.9 and 89.1 cubic feet of total cargo space. Height, width, and depth measurements remain consistent across the board; length is the only variable dimension.

Silverado Long Bed Dimensions

  • Cargo Volume – 89.10 cubic feet
  • Cargo Box Length (Floor) – 98.18 inches

Chevy Silverado Cab Sizes

As we noted from the outset, the availability of each truck bed size depends on your choice of cabin layout:

  • The Regular Cab, which seats three, is the only cab that can be paired with the Long Bed.
  • The Double Cab, which seats either five or six, is always paired with the Standard Bed.
  • The Crew Cab, which also seats five or six, can be paired with either the Standard Bed or the Short Bed.

Ultimately, London-area drivers who need more than three seats will need to leave the Long Bed to other buyers. On the other hand, if you only have enough room in your garage to store a truck with a shorter bed, you’ll definitely want to bring home a model with a Crew Cab.
