As a customizable chassis cab model, the 2021 Chevy Silverado 5500 interior can be hard to describe. Available in two trims, you can pick between the Work Truck or the LT trims. Let's take a look at what you can expect to find inside both versions of this powerful truck.
The standard infotainment system on the base model is displayed on a 4.2-inch color screen and comes with a USB and an auxiliary jack. It operates with AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 4-speaker stereo. This system can be upgraded to include a 7-inch touchscreen with a 6-speaker sound system and a CD player.
The standard vinyl upholstery makes it very easy to clean up any spills, and the option of remote keyless entry is a convenience that you'll love on days when you're running behind. As for safety, the base model comes with cruise control and a rearview camera.
On the other hand, the LT trim adds a lot of nice features that will make your life a lot easier. This is the trim that we also recommend to our shoppers due to so many enhancements. First, the infotainment interface is displayed on a standard 8-inch touchscreen, and you can add navigation into the mix as well. Satellite radio is standard on this trim, as well as a 6-speaker sound system. This multimedia center even comes with OnStar telematics and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot to keep you safe and connected everywhere your job takes you.
The vinyl upholstery has been removed and replaced with a more comfortable cloth, while the standard leather-wrapped steering wheel adds a touch of sophistication to the cabin and even includes control buttons for added convenience. Illuminated vanity mirrors have been added to the otherwise blank sun visors, and power-adjustable windows and side mirrors are also standard.
As for available features, both trim levels can get a few additional systems installed. A rear window defogger is optional, as well as a 110-volt power outlet. If you don't like the standard black seatbelts, you can opt for either orange or red. An emergency roadside tool kit is another available option that you can take advantage of, and a wireless charging pad is optional for LT models only.
