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.
If you haven’t heard, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 officially debuted back in January at the North American International Auto Show, and there’s a whole lot to look forward to when it arrives here at Stalker Chevrolet. But these are the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 features we’re most excited about:
New diesel engine: Chevrolet is offering a new Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel engine. We have been expecting this for a while, since Chevy offers a diesel for other models here at Stalker Chevrolet, like the Equinox, Cruze, and Colorado, but still, we are pumped for solid and efficient performance from this new option.
Best-in-class cargo volume: Sure, most of the space you’ll want for your truck is in the bed, but who says the cabin can’t be roomy too? Chevy is promising class-leading cargo volume for the Silverado—up to 63 cubic feet of space.
A power tailgate: Another class-exclusive feature is the new available power up/down tailgate, which you can operate remotely with the key fob.
New trims: Chevrolet has added three new trims for 2019. They include Custom Trail Boss (with off-road equipment added to the Custom trim), LT Trail Boss (also adding off-road equipment, this time to the LT trim), and RST (giving the Silverado a street-performance appearance).
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will arrive at Stalker Chevrolet later this year, and we can’t wait to see it in person!
