Silverado Grille, Structure, Improves Wind Resistance for 2019

We’ve already talked about some of the great new features that will be coming on the 2019 Chevy Silverado, but today we’d like to focus in on something that is easy to forget but can make a significant difference in the quality of a truck: aerodynamics. New and returning 2019 Chevy Silverado aerodynamic technology will deliver a seven percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency, which can mean better fuel efficiency and reduced cabin noise.

2019 Chevy Silverado Aerodynamics Technology

Plenty of engineering goes into every vehicle, and that includes air dynamics testing. Some wind resistance and drag is always going to happen with a vehicle, but streamlining how air moves around a car or truck at high speeds is getting more and more important as a focus on fuel efficiency grows in the automotive industry.

Grille Design

Borrowing technology from the sixth-generation Camaro muscle car, the 2019 Silverado has a grille designed to deliver the least air resistance. In fact, parts of the grille serve as front air curtains that direct air around the front wheel wells in a way that minimizes drag but also gets air to the engine and looks bold and attractive.[/bscolumns][bscolumns class=”one_half_last_clear”]

Side Profile

The side profile of the 2019 Chevy Silverado also works to maximize aerodynamics. There is even an integrated rear spoiler on the edge of the truck’s cab which routes air onto the tailgate lip. In many trucks, the drag caused by the bed design is a main source of wind resistances, so streamlining that offers resistance advantages.[/bscolumns][bscolumns class=”clear”][/bscolumns]

Of course these new aerodynamic advantages will only be a small part of the quality that the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado will bring to the road. This full-size, light-duty truck will also offer several enhanced engine options, a streamlined interior, and new exterior good looks.
