Depending on the configuration, the Silverado 1500 can be longer or shorter.

2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 offers three types of cabs: Regular, Double, and Crew. The Regular cab is 131.4 inches long, while the Double and the Crew cabins have 152.3 and 161.8 inches, respectively.

The longest cargo bed option has 98.1 inches. Although the height (22.4 inches) and width (71.4 inches) of every cargo box are the same, the bed volumes differ and equal to 62.9 cubic feet, 71.1cubic feet, and 89.1 cubic feet for the short, standard, and long bed, respectively.   

Total Length

The total length of your 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will depend on its configuration - its cab and bed combination. There are four available Silverados in 2021, and here they are; however, not every cab can be coupled with each bed:

the Regular cab plus long bed, totaling 229.5 inches;

the Double cab plus standard bed that have 231.7 inches between the bumpers;

the Crew cab plus short bed equaling together 231.7 inches;

the Crew cab plus the standard bed option that is 241.2 inches long.

Trail Boss Configuration

The Trail Boss is a trim level of Silverado LT (LT Trail Boss) and Custom (Silverado Custom Trail Boss). The Trail Boss configuration has additional equipment that makes Silverado off-road performance even greater. You would find a suspension lift, air filter, rear-locking differential, and other features in these two trims. In terms of dimensions, Trail Boss models are higher and have a bit longer wheelbase.


A wheelbase is a distance between the front and rear wheels of a vehicle (wheel centers are taken as start and endpoints of measurement). The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular cab with the long box attached has a wheelbase of 139.5 inches. The Double cab and the standard cargo box model has 147.4 inches between the wheels, while the Trail Boss configuration is only  0.01 inches longer, equaling 147.5 inches.

The Crew cab and the short box combination’s wheelbase is 147.5 inches, and the Trail Boss trim is, again, 0.01 inches longer, totaling 147.6 inches. The standard cargo bed and the Crew cabin have a wheelbase of 157 inches long when the Trail Boss boats 157.1 inches of the distance between the wheels.



A good rule of thumb for how much distance you should keep in front of your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is at least 1 second for each 10 feet of vehicle length at speeds below 40 mph.
