Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Towing Capacity

How many passengers does a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 hold?

Determining Chevrolet Silverado 1500 maximum seating capacity

When you need a truck that can carry a family of six, the primary condition is the front bench seat. Without it, you'll be able to take only five passengers. We want to say that there is no midsize pickup truck that can carry six passengers, but a pickup truck of light or heavy-duty can do it. Is the Chevrolet Silverado a vehicle that can take six passengers? Our answer is yes.

Let's imagine that you have to take six passengers in the truck. In this case, you can opt for the Double or Crew Cab Silverado configurations, since the Regular fits up to three people in its single row. You'll find a standard split-bench seat in Silverado with three-seating capacity, and front bucket seats, which decreases the seating capacity by one.

For the Silverado, the synthetic leather seats are standard, and you also choose the upholstery of fabric, vinyl, and real leather. In the Chevy pickup, the front seats can also be power-adjustable and can have heating function and ventilation.

The Chevrolet Silverado's front seats are commodious for the all-size passengers, and while they aren't as sumptuous as some competitors' seats, they're relatively comfortable. When they are fully upgraded, the front seats also feel very luxurious. The rear seats are pleasantly commodious, (exceptionally for the Crew Cab configuration) and both rows are very supportive. The Double Cab is not so roomy for passengers seating in the back, getting access to the rear seat is easy due to the short, forward-hinged doors. The Regular Cab seats are well-bolstered and very supportive, and there is one con: you can't heat or ventilate them even as an option.

Whether you need to install safety seats for children, the Double and Crew Cab configurations contain two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the back outboard seats and an upper tether for the rear middle seat. You can confuse the tether anchors with other hardware, and lower anchors are set too deeply in the seats.

Chevrolet also equipped some of its vehicles with a driver's seat memory function. The Silverado 1500 is not an exception. This feature allows you to regulate a position of custom seating that you can switch on by using a button. It's very convenient, especially if you are not the only driver of the car, and if the drivers' heights differ. With the driver's seat memory feature, up to two drivers can program a position of custom seating.

The Chevrolet Silverado seats have earned excellent ratings among its competitors. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given the Silverado Crew Cab configuration a Marginal rating for front passenger protection in the small overlap frontal-impact test, a Marginal rating for the child safety seat LATCH anchors.

That's all. We have given you everything we've ever known about the Chevrolet Silverado's seats. So if you decide to take rides on this pickup truck, always consider how many passengers you're going to carry and how comfortable they will feel while seating, especially during long rides.
