Spied: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Interior

2019Silverado.int01.KGP.ed II

We're getting more clues about the changes to the coming 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 half-ton pickup trucks, and those changes look more evolutionary than revolutionary. Our latest spy shots focus on styling choices GM is making, which could point to significant powertrain changes. Beyond that, the interior looks like it is getting a long overdue revamp but we're not sure how a "flat-face" dash (a la Jeep Wrangler?) will go over.

"We just got our first look inside the 2019 Chevy Silverado, along with our first look at its uncovered headlights.

"While it's clearly an all-new design, the styling of next-generation Silverado's center control panel doesn't stray too far from the layout of the current truck. It appears that a larger multimedia is employed, with audio controls placed beneath it. Climate controls are next in line. All in all, the general button array is similar to the current Silverado.

"We also caught a Silverado prototype without the white mesh that has covered the headlights of every prior prototype, so we got our first unobstructed look at the new truck's headlights and frontal LED strip. The design looks very angular, with a thin headlight strip on top consisting of three individual lighting elements. The Silverado's LED signature resides below, once again similar to the current truck. The prototype also yields a better look at the truck's new, more expressive front bumper shape. We now have our best look at the face of the 2019 Silverado.

"The prototype also is without its black-and-white graphic camo beneath the vinyl camouflage, giving us a better look at the lower body, the door cut lines, and the interplay between the body and the mud guards. We also see that this prototype — and another caught on the road — has a side-exit exhaust, the first such sightings on 2019 Silverado prototypes. All prior test trucks have had twin pipes exiting straight out from the rear bumper. The selection of engines on test for the next-gen Silverado is clearly expanding."

The dual exhaust looks good but trucks have to pratical as well. I am much more comfortable with side exhaust when pulling a horse trailer or camper.

Is GM getting so desperate to hide their new aluminum body where they're going to the extent of putting a blue oval on the grilles of their test mules? Look closely on the front end shots

Side view is UGLY!

Ummmmm interior looks the same as the current truck. You sure this is an "all new" truck?haha

Doesnt stray too far fro the current version...what we come to expect from GM, lackluster far behind the rest interiors and components.

"the interior looks like it is getting a long overdue revamp"

Its only been 3 model years. Thats not long overdue.

What does rear exit exhaust have to do with horse trailer or camper? It used to be because older trucks were fumes. These days they burn so clean it doesn't make a difference. I have a 2 year old white aluminum horse trailer I pull 2-3 times a week with a ram rear exit exhaust. No soot or anything anywhere.

can't wait to see it with the wrap off, looks ugly cause the rear tail lights are made to look ford like, front door windows to look ford like (ugly) , dash is still too covered up to see the new one, the headlights that can been seen look sweet

Guys calm down with the critism Its a PROTOTYPE it even says it in the article, they will work out the kinks and make it perfect, I garentee it, the engineers know what theyre doing. Anyway I think it looks great hopefully we'll see a new powertrain that blows out the competition like the DURAMAX does.

It's a small change but a welcome step forward from the awkward crater in the middle of the dash on the current trucks. Still looks like it is being birthed out of the center of the dash though *vomit*

Still looks took similar to the 14s with the ugly 70s wraparound dash padding and flat ugly wasteland interior trim with no character designed by the Aztec designer. It looks like Ford oval and dip down windows are a go. If you can't beat them, join them. GM comes up short once again.

That's what guys said in 2013 and production truck came out the same. Calm down we will not.

I've never been a fan of "out the back" exhaust. Trucks have poor departure angles to begin with so this is a recipe for disaster if you actually use a truck as a truck.

Are you sure this isn't an update from 2009?

That hideous interior already needs an update.

Darn GM, you really suck man.

I will venture a guess that GM will continue the offset steering wheel.

I still dislike the LED DRLs. I really think that dot-matrix look is very 2009. Over the past 3-5 years everyone is moving to the "light tubes" where it is a solid line of light and no individual LEDs can be see. Looks more modern and clean this way.

The interior looks glove friendly and fine overall. Hopefully the infotainment system is updated as GM isn't known for the quality of their system (Ram wins here).

Maybe some rounding of the square wheel wells?! Hard to tell but it could help the look overall. Seems overly tall but it might just be the camo.

Sweet looking truck!

I really hope they get rid off the offset steering wheel, you get used to it after a while but it is nothing but an engineering oversight, almost like they got the whole truck together and some said "DANG!". On the plus side, it looks like the frame no longer hangs below the body, again just looked tacky and unfinished. Also, the headlights look nice, I do not care for the current Ford headlights.

Am I the only one who thinks the mirrors look horrible? They look like they belong on a Honda Civic...

The interior reminds me of a Ford Econoline.

@ Trucky048, that is true for all. All the GM guys think the current line-up is the greatest thing ever even thought sales a falling and Chevrolet is loosing the #2 spot.

When I'm on my knees hitching up and tying up the chains and lining things up and so on, I love dual exhausts blowing in my face.

Looks pretty good to me. If you have ever drove a dodge or ford you know the comfort in chevy way surpasses the comfort on those stone age trucks. I imagine this site is full of chevy haters tho

There is nothing sweet about the truck is just pure junk like sierra.

The only reason the ford clowns don't like dual exhaust is due to there own experience. When you own a ford they never run right and lots of nasty stuff comes out there tailpipes. It's also hard on the lungs breathing in the soot when your constantly pushing them into your driveway. Ugly ford junk never runs right.

GM has an uphill battle in regards to their interior... the interior on their late model trucks leaves a lot to be desired (quality and worksmanship is lacking).

Really !!! Try turning the truck off once you are hooked up. I never have that issue.
I gotta ask! Why are you on your knees when doing this???

GM Engineers went over the best selling Ford F-150 with a fine tooth comb. They liked the Aluminum so much they copied it. They liked V-6 turbo engines so much they copied them, they liked the girly man step so much they copied it, but, they will not be swayed by a steering wheel that is centered with the truck! Nor will they make wheel wells that are round!! What does Ford think? Tires aren't square? Geez.....

Rear axle looks different, is this the same axle being used currently?

I agree with Alberta _Oil , give it up Mark. Go check out a High Country or Sierra Denali. Those interiors are tops in the industry.

You're on your knees because you left the truck running. Geezz.

Still not sure why this cannot be a 2018, still 4-6 months away from them coming out....

GM use AL body panels in the 1970s even talked bout a AL truck in 2009, GM had a turbo 6 engine in trucks as early as the 1960s, and GM had a bumper step like the current trucks have on 2003 Avalanches. When will you Ford nutswingers learn some automotive history HAHAHA!

Guess when your a Ford fan and lose so much you just have to start making things up to feel like you did it first XD !!

An over grown Colorado coming right up.....

Poor shaky GM trucks - still 1.5 yrs from release & already looks out dated LOL😅 other than Ford copy ques - still the same piece shaky junk....

Putting the Blue Oval in the girll at least catches them up on the badging. Still so far to go.

What has Ford lost? Not the truck sales lead that's for sure. I didn't say anything about a step bumper, I was referring to the tailgate step GM made fun of and is now copying. I'm not sure of the 1960's GM 6 cylinder turbo truck engine. If it did exist, they clearly didn't hit it out of the park like Ford has. Glad to know GM "talked" about an AL truck in 2009. To bad they didn't have those nutswingers you are referring to like Ford does. If so, who knows? Maybe GM sales wouldn't be sliding off the cliff so fast. HAHAHAHAHA! ( Like Ford beating GM, I even had more HA than you!!)

Maybe Chevy will give Ram their fog lights back too. Seeing how that didn't stop the sales slide. Oh wait, johhny will probably say GM "thought" about putting vertical fog lights in back before RAM. It's like Christmas with johhny/GMSRGRETTA, the thought is apparently what counts!

I for one do not care for the exhaust treatment as it is here. I think Ram's looks better than this, so I'm hoping this isn't what they intend to stick with.

Finally, no Column Shifter next to the Steering Wheel, overall, from what we can see, everything looks carefully done over from the current model and not too dramatically different, though we can expect it to gain a lot of attention when it hits the streets, just like the 2016 Silverado did from the 2014 model.

Okay so to me, the truck needs a few things
1.) a street performance package option with the red outline bowtie emblems, the 6.2L V8 455hp 6.2L LT1 with 470lb-ft torque, w/10-speed auto, magnetic ride with adjustable settings, gargantuan Brembo brakes, fatter sway bars, lowered stance, 22" rally style wheels with red outline bowtie center caps, wider tires, factory Borla dual mode exhaust system, Tri-Y exhaust manifolds, short bed, blacked out headlamps w/ LED & HID technology, black housing LED tail lamps, quad cab, cowl induction style hood, blacked out grille with chrome trim, 4x4, Dana Spicer axles front and rear, Alcantara & leather trimmed steering wheel and interior, Recaro seating, Navigation, Kicker stereo system with sub woofers and amplifiers with the red outline bowtie emblem in the steering wheel.
2.) an Off-Road package with the 6.2L 10-speed combo but also with the Duramax V8 diesel option with Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain tires on 18" black and machined wheels, 4x4 Off road graphics on the sides of the bed, lifted suspension, freer flowing exhaust systems on both the gasoline and diesel options that angle out the sides behind the rear axles, Dana axles, etc. This is not a Raptor fighter as this will compete with the Ram 1500 Rebel and a trail beast and this will have a legitimate V8, not some twin turbo V6 crap. The truck needs to be rugged and tough looking so no chrome, also the truck will need to have a wash and go interior so if people do more than "get a little mud on the tires", they can clean it out.
