Chevrolet Releases Pricing for 2019 Silverado 1500

2019-Chevrolet-Silverado-017 II

By Brian Normile

The redesigned 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is arriving in dealerships this fall, and now we know how much it will cost. The good news for frugal shoppers is that a crew-cab LT model is now $700 cheaper than the outgoing 2018 crew-cab LT; other models may see price increases depending on equipment, including the top-of-the-line 2019 High Country model. It will cost $1,000 more than the outgoing Silverado 1500 High Country.

The prices below for the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 include a $1,495 destination fee that's only $150 less than the 2019 Ram 1500's — at $1,645 it's the highest in the class. All crew-cab models will be equipped with a short bed, while extended-cab (double cab, if you speak Chevy) models have a standard-length bed. A regular cab is only available on the Work Truck; it gets a long bed. The price of adding four-wheel drive will depend on the model in question, but Chevrolet expects that the added cost won't be much different than for 2018 models, which was about $3,300, according to a Chevy spokesman.

Work Truck (4.3-liter V-6 standard)

  • Regular cab 4x2: $29,795

TrailBoss without an option for the 6.2L is disappointing.

The big 3 are getting greedy with these destination delivery fees..

I would buy this over a Ford any day.

YIKES! Looks like I'll be driving the old 2009 a little longer.

I spent the weekend with a 2018 LT Double cab which is very nice but the repairs to the old Silverado will be finished today, which means I'll be back in the 09 by dinner time.

Love that 09 with the zero car payments!

All Crew Cabs come with the mini bed only? WTF is up with that?

I wonder what design flaws'll get covered up for this generation...

GM's getting awfully stingy with their configurations. "You will get only a short bed with your crew cab and you'll like it!" Soon the Gemmers will be standing in line awaiting their "issued" truck from the "peoples" car company. But they'll take it anyway--and they'll like it I'm sure.

wow! TNTGMC paid $54K for his 6.2 V8 where he could have got a F-150 Eco-Boost for at least $10K less plus have more horsepower and torque

The ugliest truck in market

So if you look at the landscape of the near future of the full-size pickup truck segment in an unbiased manner; and especially if you're a Ford guy who actually wants to see other manufacturers step up and compete; and you're not someone scared of new engine technologies like turbo charging, cylinder deactivation, etc.; then you'd have to be impressed with what GM is finally going to bring to market in January 2019 and beyond. I am totally impressed with the engineering effort, but beyond that, that's where it all falls apart. They are not really going to step up to what Ford is and has been doing.

A 2.7L 4 cylinder, DI, gas turbo mated to an 8-speed with 310 hp and 348 ft-lb torque @ only 1500 RPM, with the current type of cylinder deactivation, which is marketed as a substitute base engine, but is it really? Not only is it not the base engine in the first three trim levels; it's not even going to be available. It should be an amazing engine for those who don't need or want a whole lot of capability; sort of like the 2.7L Ecoboost customer; but there is a big difference between how GM will market their 4 cylinder turbo versus how Ford markets their smaller twin turbo V6. This is Ford's largest share power train; GM expects only 10%. This is no accident. It's the sneaky way that they are going to make it limited; and it will not be as high a value choice as it can be for Ford customers. And this is huge! It will probably be the FE gas-powered leader when it comes out, but it will be mostly for bragging rights.

A 5.3L V8 mated to an 8-speed with the new-style cylinder deactivation which is real time; but there is a huge difference between the way GM is going to market this engine compared to the way Ford markets their upgraded engines. All of Ford's upgraded gas-powered engines come with their 10-speed and dual fuel injection (all the best treatment). GM will mate this one to their carry over 8-speed which currently returns worse mpg than the 6-speed. Moreover, not all customers who want the 5.3L will get this combination. The "high value" category customer will get the same old 5.3L with the same old 6-speed and the same old AFM cylinder deactivation.

A reworked 6.2L mated to a ten speed and the latest cylinder deactivation. Really good stuff, but only the highest category of trim levels will this be available. An F150 customer can get the latest and greatest and most capable down to XL and everything in between. This is not what GM is going to do. This combination will likely start at or near $50K. The same for the 3.0L diesel, but Ford greatly limits their diesel also, so we'll give them a pass on the diesel. The afore-mentioned 5.3L with the 8-speed and the latest DFM will be standard at this level, and it will be an option at the mid level; called "high volume", and most likely, since GM is saying that the new turbo will comprise only 10% uptake, they will really push the 5.3L in the "high volume" category.

GM is claiming lots of choice, but if you look at their own publication, two categories get exactly two choices, and one category gets three choices. Ford gives REAL choices in power trains, and so GM is not really going to step up to Ford, and it's a shame, because their engineers look to have created some really good products from 2019 and beyond. What a waste.

this is what frustrates me with GM

@DB
I agree the Trail Boss looks like a poser without the power. Not that the 5.3 is gutless, there are other options with better power for similar cost.

Good points, Ford Rules GM Drools.

Plus, GM will [still] be forcing the ancient 6.0 on gas HD customers on 2020 models. They'll be chasing away buyers that won't pay the $10k premium for a diesel, but want a heavy duty truck.

$1495 destination fee is ridiculous.

The 6.0 is a good motor. Why GM is ignoring it and not giving it a tweak here and there is beyond me. But what is more of a head scratcher is why the 6.2 is not available for the lower trims.
My case in point.
We sometimes have lighter loads to move that a 1500 will handle fine. But they are heavy still and we are in a mountain region that has steep pulls. A 2500 diesel would cure everything, right? Except they are $10,000 plus higher for a truck that is only needed some of the time. So why not get a 6.0? That is still an expensive truck for a crew cab and to justify this truck it would have to pull double duty as a grocery getter and everyday driver, an HD, no matter how refined is not much fun as a daily driver.. Employees would drive this truck, it's rare these days a man takes care of anothers truck, and I can't see paying around $60,000 for a High Country to get the drivetrain I need for those employees just to tear up.
But all of this would not be an issue if they would just make the 6.2 an option, even an expensive option, across the line.

But that would mean I am not forced to buy their Duramax! Brilliant GM! I''m in awe of you as I head to the RAM lot!

@ ecoboost rules

U don't listen or read do you! MSRP was $56K. I paid $44K for my truck with a 6.2L. Big difference! And I would never buy an ecobust. Not my cup of tea!

I really think GM is playing conservative for a year or two just like Ford did in 09 and 10 when they kept the 5.4L around. They will update the engines across the board in a year or two is my feeling. Which isnt a bad thing. Ford had great success in getting rid of the last 5.4L until the new ecoboost and 5.0L arrived. Just my opinion.

The 6.0 is a good motor. Why GM is ignoring it and not giving it a tweak here and there is beyond me.

It's supposed to be updated for the 2020 model year.

Because we live in a capitalist society, where companies are allowed to make more profit on their most popular engines if they would like. If CAFE didn't exist, I'm sure that GM would make an expensive engine upgrade option across the board, but the libs in Cali are setting the CAFE standards via CARB.

The 2018 Silverado LT I drove all weekend is way smoother and quieter than the last F150 I tried (2015).

I agree that GM got behind in the engine technology fight during the last 10 years, so did RAM, Toyota and Nissan. Nobody kept up with Ford in that particular regard. Twin turbo's, CGI, customer satisfaction.

So explain why Ford dropped their best V8 from the available F150 options list (6.2 SOHC motor). Ford's 5.0 Mustang engine is too small to be the only V8 choice for halfton pickups.

GM will have its day at the rodeo next January. Ford better hope that the Ranger is a big hit.

With a face only a mother, or GMSRGRETTA could love, these ugly trucks will be lucky to hold onto 2nd place in sales. Better push those quarterly sales reports back to annual just to keep investors off guard.

Look at that white truck up top!! LMMFAO!! Can't make a truck more hideous if they tried!! What? It's got a 4cyl? Oh yeah! Ram is licking their chops!!

GM offers the 6.2 in what? 10% of it's configurations? Maybe? The 5.0 > 5.3 which is GM's main engine. The 3.5 compares well, splitting hairs against the 6.2, but it's available in most configurations. The 2.7, 3.5 and 5.0 Ford are all better performing engines than GM's main offering 5.3 liter. With the new 2.7 4cyl, GM will offer less 6.2 and 5.3 trucks! You better keep that 09' a long time. Question: What sounds worse than a 6cyl turbocharged EcoBoost engine? Answer: A 4cyl turbocharged GM full size truck!! I hope Ford never makes as dumb of a decision as GM did on this one.

LOL!!! The gm guys are just happy to have a finally redesigned truck in 12years.

@2.7 EBR

Actually that is wrong.

One of the best sounding engines in the history of the world was the four cylinder Offenhauser --- in either N/A form or the later turbo engines. I went to the races at Indy and some of the USAC champ car circuit events back in the 1960s when the Offy's were still being used. They used them in sprint cars too.

No way any six cylinder EVER built sounds better than an Offy.

I can't wait for the comparison when the all new GM twins dominate in every performance category, and u ford guys will come up with excuse after excuse just like in the HD comparisons!!/ man I love it!!

"Ford gives REAL choices in power trains, and so GM is not really going to step up to Ford, and it's a shame, because their engineers look to have created some really good products from 2019 and beyond. What a waste."

-Ford Rules GM Drools

Ford has to do something to make up for the thin aluminum bed and unreliable IWE 4x4 system. Despite all the engine and axle options they show on their website, most of the possible configurations can't be found on the dealer lot. 3.73's are extremely rare in a 2018 F-150. More and more are coming with 3.31's and 3.15's.

GM's 2019 trucks might not have as many engine options but they come with real beds made of high-strength steel and engines that don't pull boost when it's hot out or wear out timing chains as fast as it wears out tires. It comes with a simple, solid 4x4 system that doesn't rely ancient unreliable vacuum setups.

That grille omg, looks like an old International Harvester front end. aweful

@papajim--Why would you put money into a 10 year old truck? Are you saying you can't even afford a new base model regular cab 3wd pickup anymore? Wow. I glad aI didn't take your investment advice. Looks like you aren't doing too well. It's never too last to start investing.

How bout a price scale for all the recalls

@ Chris

Recalls??? This is an article about the Silverado, not Ford!!

repairs to the old Silverado will be finished today, which means I'll be back in the 09 by dinner time.

Love that 09 with the zero car payments!

Posted by: papajim | Jul 2, 2018 1:14:32 PM

@papajim-- Zero car payments? You still have payments. You're now just making them to Manny, Moe and Jack!

No way any six cylinder EVER built sounds better than an Offy.

Where was it said by 2.7EcoBoostRoost anything about the old Offy?

“ What sounds worse than a 6cyl turbocharged EcoBoost engine? Answer: A 4cyl turbocharged GM full size truck!! “

Why move the goalposts?

@the FAKE Jeff S

Since when do Manny, Moe and Jack have loaners? I take complex stuff like fuel systems to the dealer. They replaced windshield wipers and charged zip to do a couple hours of diagnostic work on the 2009. Turned out the evap canister is probably on the back side of its run. In the meantime I'll keep driving the 09 with zero problems, zero payments and minor expenses.

Sorry about YOUR bad luck.

@TNT

Unless you're talking about a boxer design, the four cylinder ALWAYS sounds better than a six.

Every six ever built (except a 911 maybe) sounds like crap. The Offy is the essential 4 cylinder motor in history. The crankshaft in almost all 4-bangers is a 180 degree item. They just sound better.

Class dismissed.

That’s your opinion. In my opinion, a 4cyl sounds worse than a 6cyl.

A 6cyl can be tuned for an exotic sound. Can’t be done with a 4 pot.


Yeah Chris, tnt is right


Gm wont recall since they cant fix design problems.

Like all the people who didnt know they bought massage seats in the 2014 up gm trucks when going over 70mph.

Recalls, sorry FORD NOT on the list for having the most. Stop wishing.
But GM/GMC & RAM are.
I'll post again the list... facts
https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/research/10-vehicles-with-the-highest-and-lowest-recall-rates/ar-AAxErDA?li=BBnb7Kz#page=1

first off. Thats not TNTGMC. That's the gutless pretender

I only by V8 muscle...no fan of turbo 4 or 6 in a truck. Some like it l, just not for me

Stop your whining you little sissy cuckhold.

If you’re not whining, you’re shilling for GM. You make me sick.

NAME ONE six besides Porsche that does not sound like sh*t

@papajim--That was a lot of posts to get to a thud of a punch line.
Brevity is the soul of wit. You are still making payments to fix your old truck. Sounds like your truck is on the outs after only 10 years. Mine lasted twice as long. Good luck.

BMW S54 Straight 6

Jaguar XK6 Straight 6

Aston Martin DB5 Straight 6

Nissan VQ

Heck, the 3.6L Pentastar in the Chrysler 300s sounds better than a 4cyl.

There’s many more too.

Not sure why anyone is arguing about what a 4 cylinder Silverado will sound like, when no one in this comment section has heard one. My wife has a turbocharged 4 cylinder convertible with duel exhaust outlets and it sounds great. Of course the exhaust is turned so to cancel out any harshness which would otherwise be more desirable on a V8. So the moral, 4 cylinder or V8 if you want and good sounding engine. V6.........no!

@the FAKE Jeff S

Don't hide behind Jeff's ID. Come into the open and we can debate.

You don't have to be ashamed of who you are. Or is it your parents you're ashamed of?

Get an ID of your own and hang out with the guys here at PUTC. There's no reason to hide anymore. The closet must be an awfully lonely place for you. We won't make fun of you very often. And besides you'll get used to it.

Wow, are any adults on this site?

Chevy really pushing that turbo 4. Finally getting serious about small displacement modern turbo engines in the full size trucks. Wonder where they learned that from? I do think a 2.7 liter inline turbo 4cyl makes more sense than a turbo 2.7 V6.

Once again the mythical 6.2 in a half ton truck is kept mythical in volume. Only those paying an absolute premium get to see it. Keep its availability and sales volume low to limit its impact on CAFE BUT keep it in the lineup for marketing/advertising claims and to have something in the lineup that can compete with the 3.5 EB V6. Ford should just make the same "class leading" claims for all half ton trucks based on the Raptor's HO 3.5V6

More schooling for Clint:

The GM 6.2 engine is installed STANDARD in every single Escalade and every single Yukon Denali. It's also standard in every GMC halfton Sierra Denali. That's a lot of SUVs and Trucks. Not a unicorn.

The unicorn is the 3.5 Ecoboost that is trouble free.

Speaking without any brand loyalty.. while there are a few very awesome V6s (Nissan comes to mind) i’d Rather have similar displacement 4 banger. The V6 is a compromise in engine vibration/harmonics - arguably much of that had been addressed but from a purist standpoint....
If anyone is interested, check out the Engine Labs website. They computer modeled (in surprising detail) a comparasion of a hypothetical LS 5.0 vs a Coyote. As close as you can get to a pure pushrod vs DOHC smack down. Take you brand goggles off and just be a gear head ;)

Pretty tuff words considering your truck is in the shop getting fixed and Ford trucks are consumer reports top pick. Oh, RAM is in there too. No Chevy to bee seen. Then we can show that JD Powers ranks F150 as having higher drive train reliability over Chevy.

@the FAKE Elvis

I am old enough to remember Elvis, and you are NO Elvis.

Since you quote JD Power (you evidently lack conviction), please remember that JD Power is an industry-sponsored site that measures customer satisfaction during the first 90 days of ownership. It is almost entirely IRRELEVANT to a discussion of drive train reliability.

Re my Silverado. It has been the most reliable truck I ever owned. Just maintenance expenses like tires, oil changes, fluid changes. It looks spotless and runs great. You WISH you had a truck like mine. When you grow up maybe you can have one.

@grnzel

You gotta love the Engine Labs site. Great content.

"All Crew Cabs come with the mini bed only"

That alone is enough reason for me to go with an F150. I LOVE my crew cab with 6.5 foot bed!!!!!!!!!
