does center console open or no ?

Recommended Posts

hey guys, new here and new to gm trucks. I just got a 2020 chev silverado 2500HD 4x4 WT reg cab 8 ft box truck for a company truck. Does the center console not open? or is it just there to hold my cups, seems ridiculous that it wouldn't open, or is that some sort of option? I've tried to open it approaching to point i feel i am going to break something, is there a secret button somewhere to open it,  i found the pull cord that flips the console up to make it a 3 seater 40/20/40, but no button to open.

 

let me know and apologies in advance for the noob question ! my Ford (personal truck) has the same set up, but you click the center button and voila ! storage space....

No, unfortunately since it’s a base model Silverado the console doesn’t have a lid, it’s just one solid piece of trim.

All Denalis have bucket seats and a full center console.  The Chevy Work Truck trim uses the 40/20/40 bench, and the center seat does not have console storage when down as a center armrest - that requires LT/LTZ for Chevy, SLE/SLT for GMC with the 40/20/40.

yeah its kinda sucks, seems like it would cost more money to make 2 consoles instead of 1.....but there is a million topics on this with TB....LT or up for it to open.....no way I could have a truck without a storage compartment...reason I am looking at LT currently in 2500 series

Just as weird that the center console doesn't open on certain trim levels, I saw a youtube video of a similar 2020 2500HD LT trim level crew cab where the cloth back seat didn't have the center arm rest and cup holders, nor the little cubby spaces in the 2 outside seat backs. I thought those were standard?

My lt has both the console storage and the lockable under seat storage.  My truck does the convenience package 2, however the storage was listed as part of the allstar edition package.  Guessing lt models without the allstar or texas editions do not include the storage package unless it is ordered with some other package.

When I picked up my LT, I tried to open the console and it wouldn't open. I didn't want to force it and break something. I asked the salesperson and she said it's not supposed to open. I looked at it carefully and it seemed pretty obvious it SHOULD open. She was sure it wasn't supposed to open but, to humor me, she had a tech come over from the service department to look at it. He climbed in and, after putting a lot more force on it that I was willing to do, he got it open and it has worked perfectly ever since.

 

OP, I would watch eBay and try to find an LT or above console that opens. I can't imagine not being able to utilize that space in your center console,.

i had same issue....since mine was delivered to my house i didnt find out til next morning...i was gonna take it in to service but after a week i knew how the latch worked cuz i just had a 19 RST......i used a small diameter rod and fed it through pushed lid down and pulled with rod and it opened....and same as you has worked ever since.....was so stoked as i hate going to dealer for anything....even to buy the damn truck!

 

however in my 19 RST i had both storage compartments and only had conv 1 in that truck.....my 2500 has conv 2 and its identical to my RST
