10 Things You Should Know About the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado
#8. Regular, Extended and Crew Cab Models
It's a lot easier to use a pickup truck as a daily driver if you can count being able to haul around more than just one or two passengers. In addition to the Regular Cab entry-level models, the Chevrolet Silverado also comes with the option of either an Extended Cab or Crew Cab body style. Both of these can seat an additional three passengers across a rear bench that folds up to provide additional interior storage space.
The primary difference between the Extended and Crew Cab editions of the Silverado has to do with access to the back seat. Extended Cabs feature a rear-hinged door that opens up the entire side of the truck to allow for entry and exit to the passenger compartment, while the Crew Cab offers an extra set of full-size rear doors on both sides of the pickup.
