Centenarian: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Debuts as Chevy Trucks Marks 100 Years
14 January, 2018, 14:42
Such a milestone almost demands a blockbuster product, which Chevy seems quite confident it has just that in the 2019 Silverado. More details are expected closer to the truck's launch.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is redesigned to improve aerodynamics. A spoiler on the back of the cab helps with airflow, boosting aerodynamics and efficiency. Other weight savings come from the suspension which features front forged-aluminum upper control arms and a live-axle rear suspension which uses carbon-composite second-stage springs on LT variants. Parts that swing, including doors, the hood and the tailgate, are lighter aluminum, but stationery parts such as the bed, are still steel.
Silverado's frame-rail chassis and pickup bed remain steel, but the truck's hood, doors and tailgate will be made of aluminum as Chevy undertook a comprehensive review of the big truck to save weight.
There are six powertrain choices in the 2019 Silverado although Chevrolet discussed only three on Saturday. Other changes include available task lighting, a 120-volt power outlet and larger cutouts in the class-exclusive CornerStep bumpers to better accommodate steel-toed boots. Each engine is paired to GM's new 10-speed automatic transmission. In December 2017, pickup trucks sold 285,404 units, up 5.8% from the year-ago period.
The Silverado is already available with in-vehicle wi-fi, Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
The all-new Silverado, which will be offered in eight configurations, was shown in the new LT Trailboss trim which includes a 2-inch suspension lift and aggressive Goodyear Wrangler 265/65R18 tires. There will also be a sporty RST. GM's faith in steel hasn't put much of a dent in F-150 sales, which are a couple of hundred thousand units higher than the Silverado's, but it's clearly sticking with it.
Inside there's more interior volume thanks to the increased length. Twelve of them are fixed and can handle 500 pounds each - twice the maximum capacity of the tie-downs in the outgoing Silverado.
The truck bed is nearly 7 inches wider than the previous model and the short box is 63 cubic feet.
The truck can also be ordered with lockable storage bins on either side of the bed that hold seven cubic feet of volume each. The 2019 Silverado will be available with a power up/down tailgate that can be operated from the key fob, interior button or by hand. Each one is offering a slightly unique look, albeit slightly evolutionary from today's Silverado. There are hidden compartments behind the rear seats and storage underneath the rear seats.
