Sneak Peek at 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Reveals Updated, Upgraded Truck
During a centennial celebration of Chevy truck production at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Chevrolet gave its most ardent fans a sneak peek at the redesigned 2019 Silverado. The company brought the red crew cab in on a helicopter, and then the new Silverado raced onto a platform before an admiring crowd.
Few details about the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado were revealed. Given its advertising comparing the current Silverado’s steel bed floor to the aluminum used in the Ford F-150, the company made a point of detailing the new Silverado’s bed floor construction, which is roll-formed, high-strength steel designed to make the truck lighter while preserving durability. Chevrolet further touted the use of mixed materials throughout the new Silverado in order to reduce weight and, theoretically, improve performance and efficiency.
Additionally, the company says the next-generation Silverado will offer more models from which to choose, a greater variety of powertrain choices, and added technology and convenience features. Expect new safety, towing, and infotainment offerings that can match or improve upon what Ford offers in the F-150, and what Ram is expected to deliver in the redesigned 2019 Ram 1500.
In Texas, the Silverado was shown in LT trim with the Z71 option package and new Trailboss specification, which includes a 2-in. lift kit that has been tested, validated, and warrantied by Chevrolet.
Chevrolet will divulge full details about the new Silverado in conjunction with the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. We’ll have them for you in mid-January.
