Earlier this year, Chevy unveiled the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500—and at the most perfect time. Chevy pulled back the covers of the new pickup, which will soon be available at Stalker Chevrolet, on the very day that Chevrolet uncovered its first truck, back in 1918.
The new 2019 Silverado 1500 will increase in size (1.6 inches longer than the current Silverado), yet it will shed some serious poundage (450 lbs) as Chevy continues to improve fuel economy. One of the biggest improvements is to interior cargo volume: Chevy promises a class-leading 63 cubic feet in the short box model.
Another key feature that will set the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 apart from the competition is the available power up/down feature for the tailgate—a class-exclusive feature.
The Silverado 1500 will be available with different engine/transmission configurations, but the big news for the 2019 model is the addition of a Duramax inline six-cylinder diesel engine. Gas engines will include the 6.2-liter V8 and a new 5.3-liter V8. Both will boast Dynamic Fuel Management for improved fuel economy.
The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will be offered in eight trims: Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country.
See it in person when it arrives at Stalker Chevrolet later this year.
