Chevy Silverado Durabed Features Slick Trick Lighting, 120V Power
Silverado bed is terrific for anyone who uses their truck bed for work or entertainment at night.
The video above is one of the newest commercials for the all-new Silverado 1500 pickup, shared by the official Chevrolet YouTube channel. In this clip titled “Spotlight”, we get a look at a handful of the cool features that help make the cargo area of the new half-ton Chevy pickup more useful for just about every owner, with the lighting and power point system being particularly helpful for anyone who uses their truck for work at night.
Real People Enter
Like many modern Chevy commercials, this one includes a group of “real people” who are brought in to be part of the filming, as they are introduced to the all-new Silverado. They walk up to the host of the program, who is standing in the dark with a new 1500. The group moves around to the rear of the truck, where they are shown the optional LED cargo lamps that do a great job of lighting up every corner of the bed.
The host then points out the available 120-volt outlet, which happens to have an orange extension cord laying next to it. One of the real people plugs in the cord and a pair of large parking garage-style lights come on overhead, showing how much power the bed of the new Silverado can provide.
The commercial ends with the host boasting that the Silverado has the greatest number of trim levels, with more of the same lights popping on in the background, showing a total of eight half-ton pickups. The real people are obviously very impressed, with one proclaiming that “there’s something for all of us”.
Great, Simple Features
In the grand scheme of things, a bright LED bed lighting system and a 120-volt output in the bed don’t seem like revolutionary additions, but anyone who works with their truck knows how useful these new features can be. If you use your truck at night, or if you have a tonneau cover, it can be very hard to see what it is in the corners of the bed, and the cargo light on the cab doesn’t always help. This lighting system provides a clear look at every inch of the bed, so whether the Silverado is your work truck or your family hauler, these lights are sure to come in handy.
As for the 120-volt power point, this is a feature that will be more helpful to someone who uses their truck for work, but it doesn’t need to working a day job. If you are hauling wood for a backyard project, you can use this outlet to power a saw to trim the wood to the proper length. On the other hand, say that you are having a tailgate party before your favorite college’s football team takes the field; the new Silverado can power a television, a Crock Pot or a blender, among other things.
Again, these are basic upgrades in the modern world, but these small changes show how Chevrolet is always working to make the Silverado a better truck.
