The 2019 Silverado interior will, in fact, offer heated rear seats – answering the desires of many. We saw the feature when exploring the new Chevy truck at the reveal event yesterday evening.
From an availability standpoint, we’re sure that the heated outboard rear seats will not be a feature on all 2019 Silverado models. For instance, the LT Trailboss model that shown at the reveal didn’t have them, but the range-topping High Country did. But we wouldn’t read too much into that, since the feature could be a either an option, offered either as standalone or as part of a package on some models like the LT Trailboss.
On models so equipped, the controls/buttons to enable and disable the heating function are located on the back of the center console just above the new rear HVAC vents and various ports, including two USB ports (type C and type A) and a 120-volt household-style outlet.
In addition to adding HVAC vents, Chevrolet also improved the comfort of second-row passengers in the 2019 Silverado 1500 by stretching the truck’s cab. Specifically, Crew Cab models now offer three inches of additional rear-seat legroom in the 2019 Silverado interior, compared to the outgoing model, for an impressive 44.5 inches of front legroom and 43.8 inches of rear legroom.
