The General Motors will be launching a new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in the near future. The Chevy is known when it comes to the world of domestic pickup trucks but not as popular as the Ford F-Series which has been topping the sales chart over the last decades. However, if you combine GMC and Fords sales, the pickup sales from General Motors is more than those sold by Ford over the last years.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 – New Generation:
The Chevrolet Silverado was introduced alongside GMC Sierra in 2013 as 2014 model year. The GMC is usually known to introduce new generation models after a period of about seven to ten years. However, due to the stiff competition in the segment, the auto designer has shortened the cycle to just five years. You should, therefore, prepare yourself for brand-new Chevy Silverado 1500 in 2019. The pick-up truck has been spied being off-loaded for testing. At first sight, you might think that the highly camouflaged Chevy Silverado 1500 is an F-150 due to the front-window cut-down, which has been Ford’s trademark for decades.
It seems Chevrolet has resorted to the use of lightweight aluminum materials for their pickup truck bodies, and the forthcoming 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is not going to be an exception. The lightweight body designing will help in cutting the overall pickup’s weight hence improving aerodynamic power as well as fuel efficiency. The vehicle will be offered in various door configurations including two-door, dual (four-door) and taxicab. The consumers can choose to form up to six trims levels; WT (Job Tuck), Personalized, High Country, LS, LT, and LTZ. Every model comes with a standard a thin, projector-beam headlights while upper trim levels will get LED jewelry headlights. The bumpers have also been redefined and the new grille has elegant black and silver lining.
When it comes to the interior cabin, expect a comprehensive upgrade including a more comfortable seat arrangement. The dashboard will be upgraded with a redefined infotainment system featuring 7.0- and 8.0-inch MyLink touch screens. Fine leather upholstery will be used for the seats as well as dashboard and steering wheel trimming. Among the standard interior features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto integration, automatic climate control, premium air conditioner, satellite navigation and others. The quality sound system will also be provided with satellite radio, USB ports, CD/MPE/MP4 player and Bluetooth audio connectivity.
