The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is expected to be presented sometime next year. This new and improved version of the Silverado reportedly will have a much better and more modern technology compared to the previous truck models from GM. The Silverado takes the second place on the most sold tracks list in America. So the improved 2019 Silverado will also be one of the most popular trucks. Since the sales for GM have dropped lately because of the outdated technology of the Silverado, the new model will bring significant changes in that area. There will also be changes in the engine, making it more powerful and with a better fuel efficiency.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 – Exterior and Interior Redesign
The photos captured from the camouflaged test mule of the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 did not show a lot. The new model will probably have six-lug 17-inch steel wheels and wider wheel arches. The Silverado will have a lot of aluminium body with a weight for the truck of around half a tonne.
The aluminium body will enable the truck to be safer, rust-resistant, lighter and stronger than before. The bed is probably going to be made of steel. There will also be an option to choose from an all-wheel drive and a standard wheel drive. There will be more frontal LED daytime lights and xenon headlights. Other things that have been noticed are the dual-exit exhaust tips and more noticeable handles located on the A-pillar.
When it comes to the interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 a lot of it is unclear. It is expected that the new model will borrow a lot from the looks of the previous Silverado. It will offer much more technology than the one before including a 360-degree camera and an automatic trailer steering system, low-speed emergency braking, forward collision warning, improved touch screen and more. The leg space for the driver and front seat passenger will probably be improved.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 – Engine and Performance
Most of the changes will be implemented under the hood. The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is expected to have a more powerful engine with a better fuel efficiency provided by the two base engines. One of them will be a turbocharged four-cylinder and the other one a better version of the 4.3-liter V6 engine with 285 hp.
The 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp is the next engine. And a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp will probably be present again. When it comes to gear changing an 8-speed or 10-speed automatic gearbox will be available, and also a choice between rear or four-wheel drive.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 – Price and Release Date
When it comes to the price, it is still too early to speculate. The price range will probably vary from 28,000 for the base model up to 60,000 for the most equipped models. Although there is not a precise date for the release of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, it is expected that it will be presented at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2018 and that the sales would probably start sometime in the summer next year.
