Chevy Silverado Models Lined Up for 2019, New Custom Trailboss Planned

Chevy Silverado Models Lined Up for 2019, New Custom Trailboss Planned

The RST is new and could be considered the sport truck trim.

Chevrolet has whipped the covers off the new 2019 Silverado 1500, the company's latest pickup and arguably the most important truck in the American automaker's line-up.

What remains to be seen is how much power the new 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine can actually deliver against Ford's Power Stroke. The 3.0L diesel and 6.2L V8 get a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 gas engines are getting revamped for more performance and economy, like the dynamic fuel management which can deactivate between one and seven of the cylinders depending on the load on the truck at any time.

The weight savings comes from extensive use of mixed materials and new manufacturing processes. The 80 percent high-strength steel frame is also lighter. The two major changes to next year's models are the 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine and the prolific use of aluminium for hinged components that brings down the weight by nearly 450 pounds. Small spoilers on the roof and tailgate optimize airflow. Wheelbase is up to 3.9 inches longer and the overall length by 1.6 inches. The bed floor is also seven-inches wider than the old one, which Reuss said delivers best in class cargo volume, and it can be accessed by an optional power tailgate with remote opening and closing functions.

In that bed, customers can opt for a series of storage compartments over the wheel arches that, when installed, will still accommodate a full four-by-eight-foot sheet of plywood. Twelve of them are fixed and can handle 500 pounds each - twice the maximum capacity of the tie-downs in the outgoing Silverado.


The 2019 Silverado will be available with a power operating rear tailgate that can open and close with the push of a button on the vehicle's key fob. The knobs and controls have been enlarged and textures, to give more grip when you're wearing gloves, and there are hidden storage cubbies around the cabin, including a tray under the rear seat. Technology-savvy customers are further offered 4G LTE with Wi-Fi connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, as well as wireless phone charging. For the 2019 model year, there'll be eight Silverado models, in fact.

The Silverado is critical to Chevrolet's business.

Finally, in an effort to capitalize on the burgeoning luxury pickup segment, Chevy's two "High Feature" variants are the Silverado 1500 LTZ and Silverado 1500 High Country, which up the ante in terms of chrome accents.

The 2019 Silverado made its official debut at the Detroit auto show after an early introduction at an event celebrating Chevy Truck's 100th anniversary in November 2017 in Texas.

"Chrome has become more polarizing, and more personal, than any other aspect of truck design", said Rich Scheer, director, Exterior Design, Chevrolet Trucks.
