The Future is Near: The All-New 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500

The 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 in Lafayette, IN.

The all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado will offer eight models with six different powertrain combinations in its completely redesigned body. The trim levels include the High Country, LTZ, LT Trailboss, LT, RST, Custom Trailboss, Custom, and Work Truck to ensure they have a pickup that will fit the needs of a diverse audience. The new truck is 1.6 inches longer, and the wheelbase has been stretched 3.9 inches compared to previous models. The truck will also sit one inch higher which must mean decreased fuel economy, right? Wrong! The engineers at GM spent countless hours in the wind tunnel to drastically increase the aerodynamics, and they didn't stop there. It will also incorporate the cutting-edge Dynamic Fuel Management system, much more complex than shutting off two or four cylinders. The system can turn off one to seven cylinders at a moment's notice depending on conditions and needs of the power plant. In 2019, we will see a more fuel-efficient Chevy Silverado also offered in a turbocharged inline-four or an inline-six Duramax diesel! GM also shaved a significant amount of weight on this all-new Chevrolet Silverado.

This truck brings a whopping seven-inch extension to the width of its bed with twelve stationary tie-downs. Did we mention that the bed is 1.5 times stronger than before? Per option, the bed will also include an available 120V outlet and lighting. Drivers said our corner steps on the bed were too small, so GM responded with larger corner steps to fit work boots. On higher-end models, a push of a button could lower or shut the tailgate in the cabin. If the truck is longer, does that mean the bed is also longer? Not really, GM extended the length and wheelbase to create more space in the back seat. Engineers were able to lengthen the rear cabin three inches which means more leg room! The all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado is expected to hit floors this August!
