Only the longest bed can allow an 8-foot sheet of drywall to lay flat, but the new MultiFlex tailgate makes it easy to accommodate unwieldy cargo in any configuration!

Chevy Silverado Truck Bed Features

The Silverado 1500 truck bed sizes give it an edge against other light-duty pickup trucks, but size isn’t the only factor that makes the Silverado 1500 such an appealing option. Here’s what else you should keep in mind:

  • The Chevy Durabed is built with high-strength steel and it comes equipped with 12 standard tie-downs. An EZ Lift power lock and release tailgate is optional.
  • The Silverado 1500 now features a MultiFlex tailgate that can be configured to meet the needs of the moment. This tailgate with multiple hinges allows you to transport longer items safely or create a step-up into your truck bed.
