2019 Chevrolet Silverado makes unexpected debut
The next-generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado was unexpectedly unveiled at an event celebrating the first 100 years of Chevy Trucks.
The 2019 Silverado 1500 is all new from the ground up, but details are still scarce. The only information released says that it will deliver better performance and capability, with significantly reduced weight. They seem to be hinting that the truck hasn’t gone all-aluminium like the Ford F-150, but some parts may indeed be aluminium as they made use of “mixed materials,” including a higher-grade alloy in the roll-formed, high-strength-steel bed floor, contributing to lighter weight.
The next-gen Silverado will also offer an expanded range of models, more engine/transmission combinations, and more technology and convenience features.
The model seen here is the new Silverado LT Trailboss, one of eight 2019 Silverado models. It integrates the off-road equipment of the Z71 package as well as a two-inch suspension lift.
The 2019 Silverado will make its public debut in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, exactly 100 years after the first Chevrolet trucks were delivered to customers.
