What’s New on the 2019 Silverado?
Drivers looking for the top performance and first-class features have, time and time again, turned to the Chevrolet Silverado for their utility and leisure performance needs. A successor to Chevy’s long-running C/K line, the Silverado prioritizes capability and job site-ready innovation.
With the current generation of Silverado trucks being one of the most successful vehicles in Chevrolet’s history, the Silverado combines a ton of value with a massive range of engine, bed, cab and trim level configurations.
Although Chevrolet announced the 2019 Silverado a month ago at their 100 years of Chevy trucks event in Dallas, it was only this past week that we got more than a controlled photoshoot’s worth of images. We have some real information on the next generation of one of America’s favorite pickup trucks. Let’s take a look:
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Design
One area where drivers will immediately notice a difference is the design of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. The gigantic front fascia and grille sweep back along stylish, squared-off contours toward the bed and tailgate. The trademark square wheel arches have evolved as well, adopting a rounded look.
Inside, the experience has been tidied up, with important controls moving to the right and left side of the driver’s large and informative meter cluster. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is on board to give drivers access to navigation, music, podcasts and more with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Additionally, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is up to 450 lbs. lighter, due to new materials being used in construction.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Engine Options
Three available engine options make the 2019 Silverado 1500 a truck for multiple applications. A 5.3L gasoline V8 and 6.2L gasoline V8 both feature cylinder deactivation to allow drivers to do more with less fuel.
A 3.0L Duramax turbo diesel engine is also available for higher output demands.
The 3.0L diesel and 6.2L gasoline engines will be mated to a unique-in-class 10-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Configurations
Knowing the passion drivers inject in their Silverado 1500 models, Chevrolet has gone above and beyond with the number of trim level configurations. By offering multiple choices, drivers are able to pick the features, build type and ride quality they want straight from the Chevrolet factory.
Going beyond simply engine options, the 2019 Silverado 1500 gives drivers eight trim level configurations with unique features and amenities to make each one distinctly perfect for an established community of Silverado drivers.
- 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck (WT)
