More and more information is being delivered about the highly anticipated 2019 Chevy Silverado, and the latest one is related to the LED accents that are visible through camouflage of the test vehicle. No matter what you think about Silverado or any other truck in the U.S., it is clear that these pickups rule the market. Sale figures of models like Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Silverado, are usually in the region of total sales for some companies.
This week brought us an image of the new Infiniti Pickup Truck, and now we have the best look at the new Silverado. Big changes are being prepared here as the grille will offer two bars, and just as always, a large bowtie in the center. These upgrades also include LED tech for Z shaped lights and the turn signals that are located below.
At the back, we are getting something Ram has already introduced, bumper cutouts for dual exhaust. The reaction of the fans will show if this was the right move by the carmaker or not.
2019 Chevy Silverado – Appearance and Features
With 2019 Chevy Silverado you will be getting a powerful truck that with its appearance promises to get any job done. A great number of possibilities to choose from bed lengths, cab configurations, and interior trims allow you to make a perfect combination for yourself.
It is clear what is the goal of every pickup, to offer top of the line work capabilities, but lately, we are getting models that have the premium features in the cabin. If you opt for the base version, you can expect to get many storage compartments and well-organized controls. Quality of the plastic is another thing that needs to be mentioned as it promises decent durability.
2019 Chevy Silverado – Powertrain Options
Engine lineup is the segment in which we could see few changes. The base unit is the 4.3-liter V6 that is capable of producing 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. Second in the lineup is the 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 pound-feet of torque while the top offer is the 6.2-liter V8 that pumps out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
If you opt for the smallest unit, you can also get it with six-speed automatic transmission. If you go for a slightly larger engine, you will have a choice between six-speed or the eight-speed auto. On top of that, there is the eAssist system that brings the small electric motor to the mix slightly improving fuel economy. The only transmission that comes with the biggest powerplant is the eight-speed auto.
When we mentioned changes in the engine lineup, we were talking about the possibility of the introduction of turbocharged units. With this move, the 2019 Chevy Silverado could offer better fuel economy and improved tow rating.
Starting Price and Debut Date of the 2019 Chevy Silverado
Starting price is not expected to change a lot, and the 2019 Chevy Silverado should go from $28,000. However, with many options that can be added, different bed lengths, cab setups and similar, you can easily reach and go over $50,000.
If you decide to go for the new truck, you will have to wait a little bit longer as the sales are scheduled to start during the first few months of the next year.
