As Chevrolet celebrates the 100th anniversary of producing its first truck, the company has released images of the 2019 Silverado.
The 2019 Silverado 1500 is all new from the ground up, according to Chevrolet. The truck features a “strong, modern design,” the company stated in a news release.
The new Silverado also will deliver improved capability and performance, according to Chevrolet. For example, a higher-grade alloy is used in the roll-formed, high-strength-steel bed floor, contributing to a bed that is more functional and lighter weight. This use of mixed materials and advanced manufacturing is evident throughout the Silverado, resulting in a significant reduction in total vehicle weight and improved performance in many measures.
The next-gen Silverado will offer an expanded range of models, more engine/transmission combinations and more technology and convenience features to help customers find their ideal truck.
The new Silverado LT Trailboss is 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.
