S, here’s our “Chevrolet Colorado vs. Silverado” comparison. Now, there are obviously a ton of dissimilarities between both vehicles. For instance, you have the trim levels and the associated differences that come with that. Unfortunately, there are too many. So we’re going to cut that out and focus on the most important points – configuration and capability.

Configuration The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado comes in crew can and extended cab forms. The bed can be chosen in both standard and short lengths. The short bed is about 6-feet long while the standard bed is about 6.7 feet. The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado is also offered as a crew cab or extended cab. The latter comes with 1.5 doors on either side. But the crew cab offers four standard doors. There is no single cab configuration. The bed on the extended can configuration measures 6.2-feet.
