2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Release date, Specs – The last Silverado continues to be spied upon evaluating several times and it seems that the changes are more than beauties. The truth is that this update will provide the market with a completely new version plus a completely new interior. Although so far, GM has not released much in terms of the potential van, it was actually an espionage control on open highways and, in addition, it had noticed its interior without using the skin. It looks like the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado within the upgrade It will carry a good number of updates.
The 2019 Silverado 1500 is brand new and shares almost zero part of the outgoing truck. The truck’s all-box chassis is now 88 pounds lighter but has a 10% torsional rigidity and the truck’s total weight dropped 450 pounds when comparing the V8 models of 2018 and 2019. The rest is in stainless. This includes the floor of the bed, which, according to Chevy, is made of higher strength steel than before.

Chevrolet has also improved the functionality by making the loading platform larger. The popular short box, standard on Crew Cab models, measures 63 cubic feet in volume, which Chevy estimates at 20 percent. 100 more than the 2018 short-haul trucks of its competitors. The wheel arches have been spaced almost seven inches apart, making it even easier to install sheets of plywood or 4×8 plasterboard on the bed. Each 2019 Chevrolet Silverado comes with stronger and stronger fasteners.
Chevy now has storage boxes installed by the dealer that sit in the wheel wells and against the inside wall of the bed. They offer almost seven cubic feet of lockable storage. Other new features include lighting tasks in the bed and a 120-volt household outlet near the tailgate. The Chevy CornerStep Super Convenient bumper is now larger to better fit steel-tipped boots. The base of the Work Truck is engraved with “CHEVROLET” on its black grid and along the tailgate. The modest 17-inch wheels and black trim complete the look.
The customized version also comes back, offering a more exclusive aspect of the basic category of Work Truck. Includes body-color trim, 20-inch aluminum wheels, LED taillights and the availability of the new dual exhaust integrated with the rear bumper. The custom setting can also be equipped with the new Trailboss setting. Take the habit and turn her into a, well, boss on the track. The LT molding adds chrome to the bumpers, to the grille and to the covers of the mirrors, and a Chevrolet bow tie on the front grille. Improved LED headlamps and daytime running lights are also added.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Interior
The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is completely new, although it is not a drastically radical change of the old Chevy Silverado. The board features a two-tone design in the higher versions, as well as bucket seats and a full-body center console. The lower accessories come with a black or gray board and a 40/20/40 split bench. Impressively, Chevrolet manufactured the 7.0-inch MyLink infotainment system, even in the basic category of Work Truck.
The redesigned steering wheel looks more exclusive but comes with familiar controls. The gear lever is practically the only piece of drag in the truck. It still has a rocker switch for manual gear change and a button at the end of the tow/pull mode. A revised indicator package provides statistics on digital meters, as does the outgoing Sierra GMC.
The redesign of the central console organizes in a simplified way MyLink controls, HVAC knobs and a row of rocker switches for auxiliary equipment, such as parking sensors, automatic start/stop, traction control, descent and the electric tailgate button for up and down. Built-in trailer brakes, a USB and USB-C connection, a 12-volt power port, and a 110-volt household outlet occupy the lowest step.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Engine
Chevy is shy with the details of the powertrain. The “official” news is that the 5.3-liter V-8 and 6.2-liter are “new” and a line of six-cylinder 3.0-liter line arrives. The 10-speed automatic transmission will be the premium transmission, which will likely make the current eight-speed automatic transmission the standard gearbox.
The details of the V-8 include Chevy’s new dynamic fuel management system that actively shuts off any number of cylinders, not just four, to save fuel when full power is not needed. For example, the V-8 can work with six, four or even two cylinders. We knew that General Motors was developing this technology in early 2015. At that time, it was called Dynamic Skip Fire. As for the exhaust note, Chevy says it has equipped the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 cab with a very thick acoustic insulation to combat unpleasant noises when not in the V-8 model. In addition to dynamic fuel management, V-8s continue to use direct fuel injection and variable valve timing. the new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel from the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. The only information that Chevy has announced about the new engine is that it will be paired exclusively with the new 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will come standard with rear-wheel drive, but the part-time four-wheel drive will be offered on each seat.
The fuel economy ratings have not been announced, but we expect to see a jump in efficiency. Currently, the 2018 Silverado with 5.3-liter V-8 and propulsion can reach 16 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in combination.
Price and release date
Chevy has not announced a price for the 2019 Silverado 1500. This news will probably only be available a few weeks before the truck arrives at dealerships. Chevy says this will happen by the end of 2018. We expect a slight increase in prices, of course. Currently, the 2018 Silverado 1500 WT starts at $ 28,285 and goes down to $ 60,000 with each option box checked. It is likely that Chevy will increase the base price of each platform from $ 500 to $ 1,500, depending on the amount of content and the improvements to the generational change.
