As the reveal approaches, here’s everything we know about the 2019 Silverado:

  • The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will be available in Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab configurations.
  • Eight different variants will launch for 2019. One of them is the off-road capable LT Trailboss shown at Texas Motor Speedway.
  • The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will feature a striking design, including the projector headlamps and curved LED accents caught previously in spy shots. It has a muscular hood and body with bold fenders and curved wheel wells. The rear tailgate features “Chevrolet” stamped from end-to-end.
  • There will be more engine and transmission combinations than ever before.
  • Powertrains could include new turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 engines. Updated versions of the V6 and V8 engines in current models are also expected.
  • The light-duty Silverado 1500 will be available with a diesel engine.
  • A mild hybrid or plug-in hybrid version is possible.
  • The 2019 Silverado is expected to use the 10-speed automatic transmission developed in tandem with Ford. It is already in use on some GMC models and comes standard on the Cadillac Escalade and Ford F-150 pickups.
  • The bed of the truck is made of a high-grade steel alloy to reduce weight and increase fuel economy and towing capacity. The Silverado will not follow the aluminum beds found in current Ford F-Series trucks.
  • Chevrolet could introduce the industry’s first carbon fiber bed in the future, according to the Wall Street Journal.
  • Many parts of the 2019 Silverado cabin are expected to be made from aluminum, including the doors.
  • The powertrains and construction of the 2019 Silverado will likely be similar in its GMC Sierra luxury sibling.
  • The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2018.

They sent me an e-mail about it this morning. Can't say I'm excited about it yet. I was considering a 2018 before the body style changes (I like that one) but my accountant talked me out of it. Besides, my 10-year-old is still like new. I'll save the money and see what that upcoming Buick CUV thing is about. My accountant may be overruled.

I'm interested in the Buick CUV-EV thing as well. I don't really need a pickup since there are like 10 of them in my family and their businesses.

I'll stick with ELR until Buick or Cadillac (or someone else) comes up with something bigger and better.

"A mild hybrid or plug-in hybrid version is possible"

Could be a variant of the Cadi CT6 PHEV RWD Voltec transmission.

A Voltec Silverado would be awesome...basically adding Voltec to every vehicle in the lineup would be awesome.
