2022 Chevrolet Colorado truck bed dimensions

The 2022 Colorado keeps things relatively simple with just two available bed length options. The Extended Cab comes with a long box (6-foot-2-inch bed), while the Crew Cab can be equipped with either the long box or a short box (5-foot-2-inch bed)
But how much do the long box and short box actually differ? Let’s take a closer look at the dimensions for the long box first: 
  • Bed length: 74 inches
  • Bed width: 57.8 inches
  • Total cargo volume: 49.9 cubic feet
And here’s the dimension for a Crew Cab with a short box:
  • Bed length: 61.7 inches
  • Bed width: 57.8 inches
  • Total cargo volume: 41.3 cubic feet
Please note that since the Colorado doesn’t have a traditional trunk, cargo volume is based on the truck’s bed length. 
Additionally, the Colorado’s cargo bed has a payload capacity of 1,569 pounds. While not as stout as a full-size truck, the midsize truck is still capable of hauling some bulky items, like a few dirt bikes. By comparison, the Chevrolet Colorado’s top competitor—the
Ford Maverick
—has a 4.5-foot bed that offers just 33.3 cubic feet of cargo space.

The Colorado’s bed length provides more than just generous space. It also comes with helpful features such as built-in steps in the corners of the rear bumper and handrails in the bed rails. 
Furthermore, the Chevrolet Colorado comes available with an optional EZ Lift and a Lower tailgate as well. While the midsize truck lacks a built-in bed liner and in-bed power outlet like most of its rivals, the 2022 Colorado does offer several tie-down points in the bed.
