Chances are, when you think about dramatic pickup truck designs, Chevrolet isn't the name that's top of mind. But that might be changing. From what we're told, designers and engineers for the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 were given the green light for just about everything they suggested. And that hasn't always been the case at parent company General Motors. In fact, the last significant Silverado 1500 redesign came after the big 2008 GM "reorganization," when the automaker had to be bailed out of financial failure by the U.S. government; as a result, some have argued the 2014 redesign (started years earlier) was a cautious play for cost-saving reasons. This time, with a much more solid business plan, GM is hoping to come out on top.
We had two days of seat time in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 earlier this week. Although we can't yet discuss how the new truck drives (look for that Monday morning), we can show you some important details inside and out of the new pickup. We were able to examine in detail all eight trim levels; they are well-positioned and distinct. The 2019 Silverado is broken down into high value, high volume and high feature groups with Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country trim levels. Here are a few highlights from the new top-of-the-line High Country. Look for our driving impressions Monday.
