In order to accommodate the needs of their customers, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado was redesigned to offer the most cargo volume in every bed length. Even the short-box offers up to 20 percent more cargo volume than its competition with 63 cubic feet of volume. The added volume was made possible thanks to the increase in overall bed width. The new and improved bed is now almost seven inches wider than the previous model. With the additional space also comes an increase in strength. While the Silverado has been known for its impressively strong steel bed, the 2019 Silverado sets a new standard with even higher-grade steel. The new yield strength for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has increased to 500 megapascals from its previous 340. The strength of the Silverado’s 12 fixed tie-downs has also doubled to 500 lbs. before bending, increasing the functionality and security of the bed.
