Adjust Comment Print

While celebrating 100 years of building Chevy trucks, General Motors unveiled the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado to the faithful at the Texas Motor Speedway. The 2019 Silverado 1500 is all-new from the ground up and leverages Chevrolet's experience building more than 85 million dependable, long-lasting pickups. It is expected that full details will be revealed in Detroit once the Silverado makes its global debut along with the rest of the variants.

The new Silverado is highlighted by its aggressive styling, particularly the front fascia, which sees a sculpted new grille and integrated LED headlights. On top of that, the brand said that the bed now uses a higher-grade alloy for a high-strength steel floor, again increasing functionality and reducing weight.

The three pictures of the Silverado show off the LT Trailboss trim, one of eight 2019 Silverado models.

Chevy has not announced what will power the new 2019 Silverado, but we'll have all the details next month in Detroit. At the culmination of the Chevy Trucks Centennial Celebration event, which featured NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his 1988 S-10 along with 100 Chevy trucks of all ages and types spelling out a giant "100" in the infield, the sound of a heavy lift helicopter filled the speedway.

Not all of 2019 Silverados will look like this, and that's because the 1500 has gained a trim level called Trail Boss.

We built these restaurants so that our guests could have fun and indulge, but I took that too far in my own behavior. He has stepped down from his restaurant empire and was kicked off the ABC cooking show, " The Chew ".

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss features the Z71 off-road package and an approved 2-inch lift kit. "How many of you have a name for their truck?" cries Batey as several hundred hands reached for the sky.

The next-gen Silverado will also offer an expanded range of models, more engine/transmission combinations, and more technology and convenience features.

It seems like every year the truck market is getting changed with the Big 3 releasing new versions and updates.

GM's chief engineer, Eric Stanczak says some of the improvements that will go into its next-generation pick-up trucks are based on owners' recommendations and feedback.
