2019 Chevrolet Silverado: More Truck, More Capability, and More Value

2019 Chevrolet Silverado: More Truck, More Capability, and More Value

BAY CITY, Mich. -- The highly-anticipated 2019 Chevrolet Silverado LT, slated for release in Fall 2018, promises to be a larger truck with more capability and fuel efficiency, all while being up to $700 less than the current model. 

“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability, and value,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “The next-gen Silverado continues that tradition — offering more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities and a lower starting at MSRP on our highest volume model.”


The 2019 Silverado starts at $37,500 MSRP, even with new standard equipment such as a 2.7L Turbo engine with 22% more torque than the current 4.3L V6, and 8-speed automatic transmission, and stop-start technology. 

On the upscale High Country trim alone, a myriad of other standard equipment is being introduced such as a 5.3L V8 engine with new Dynamic Fuel Management, push-button start, and stop-start technology - as well as advanced safety features like Lane Change Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. For a starting MSRP of just $1,000 more than the LT, the High Country will also feature Advanced Trailering System, enhanced LED exterior lighting, dual-exhaust outlets, and a class-exclusive power tailgate.

Available options on the 2019 Chevy Silverado include:

  • Z71 Off-road Equipment Package is now available on all models (and standard on Trail Boss models, which also feature a factory-installed 2-inch lifted suspension, Rancho monotube shocks, and Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac all-terrain tires). The Z71 package includes:
  • Off-road tuned Ranch twin-tube shocks.
  • Electronic hill descent control.
  • Two-speed transfer case and automatic locking rear differential
  • Skid plates for engine oil pan and transfer-case protection
  • Heavy-duty air filter.
  • 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires.
  • Dual exhaust outlets for models equipped with V-8 engines.
  • Advanced, active-safety features, including:
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Front and Rear Park Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Forward Collision Alert and Following Distance Indicator
  • Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Safety Alert Seat
  • IntelliBeam headlamps, high-beam assist.
  • Advanced technology features, including:
  • GM-exclusive, 3 x 7-inch configurable color head-up display.
  • 8-inch configurable driver information center.
  • Surround Vision
  • Rear Camera Mirror


The 2019 Silverado is largest of any in its line to date in virtually every dimension. For example, the crew cab, short box boasts 1.2 inches more total width, 1.5 inches more total height, 1.7 inches more total length, and 3.9 inches more wheelbase.

That being said, the 2019 Silverado offers an additional three inches of cab length across all configurations and up to four cubic feet more of volume. Additionally, it features the largest cargo volume of any full-size truck on the market in short, standard, and long-bed models. The short-bed of the Silverado alone offers more cargo volume than the standard bed of the Ford F-150, at 62.9 cubic feet. Despite its gargantuan size, the 2019 Silverado is actually up to 450 pounds lighter than the current model, thanks to advanced manufacturing and the use of mixed materials.

The 2019 Chevy Silverado lineup offers more configuration choices than ever, including a total of six engine/transmission combos to the meet the needs of every driver in terms of performance, efficiency, and value, in addition to increased towing and payload capabilities:

  • Crew cab Silverado models increase in payload up to 14% or 340 pounds
  • The 4.3L V-6 now offer a maximum of 8,000 pounds towing, up 400 pounds (regular cab, rear-wheel-drive models)
  • The 5.3L V-8 with Max Towing Package now offers a maximum of 11,600 pounds towing, up 400 pounds (double-cab, rear-wheel-drive models)
  • For 2019, the 6.2L V-8 is now exclusively offered with four-wheel drive. Equipped with the Max Towing Package, it now delivers a maximum of 12,200 pounds towing, up 500 pounds from a similarly equipped 2018 model (double-cab, four-wheel-drive models)
