2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Spied: Design Curves

I-chnSKkc-XL II

This is probably our best look at the new design language on the next-generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500; it reminds us of some of the exterior lines on the current mid-size Chevrolet Colorado. And maybe that makes sense. By all accounts the Colorado has been a solid hit for GM and is likely to sell close to 115,000 units by year end. Not bad for something that didn't exist just 2.5 years ago. The Colorado has helped GM separate itself from other pickup truck makers, all of which have just two pickup classes to offer their customers. GM has three.

Judging from these photos recently sent to us by our spy shooters, the exterior of the new Silverado looks to be more of an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary change. We're assuming the more significant changes will be in the suspension, interior and powertrain technology. We've heard rumors about both a new twin-turbo four-cylinder as well as a small diesel choice. Additionally, we can see here that it looks like GM has come up with a new mirror design, which we can only assume will have some kind of new technology inside to justify the growth. Whether they will be extendable for towing purposes or not remains to be seen. 

We still don't know exactly when or where GM will make its new half-ton pickups public, but we'll pass that news along when we get confirmation. More to come.

I don't like the round wheel wells...

That's a start!

@ Grnzel1..., Nice..., labor of love, I bet.

I am a Chevy truck person the truck looks like a cross of lite an heavy duty truck it looks strong.But I had rather drive that not so pretty Chevy tough truck. Than drive a Ford or Dodge. I will take it out for a Chevy tough truck contest. Out of the three. I would say that the Chevy would end up being #1 over Ford or Dodge. David

I would have to see the truck without it camo to make a judgement. Honestly I could care less if the wheel wells are round or square as long as I like the truck. Much more concerned about the size, function, and mechanics of the truck than wheel wells. I would also choose a manual transmission over wheel wells which is harder to get a manual as an option.

Just imagine, if GM made a compact pickup that would give it four truck size lines: compact, midsize, full-size and heavy duty.

So right! GM has the resources to put a competitive true-compact truck in the US showrooms.

I imagine they'd partner with one of the lesser Asian makers to do this, or maybe even a first-tier Asian maker like Hyundai. Picture a truck the size of a Chevy Luv that offered a base 1.6 liter engine, with the option of a turbo 1.6

Most importantly, the truck would need to be built in the US to avoid import taxes. It is not my personal cup of tea but from what I read on this website there's still interest in a micro pickup that slots below the Colorado.

Looks gay and cheap!

I have always been a Chevy fan but every since I'm went to the 2000 body style myself I don't like the looks nor the life of the transmission in my experience the 4l60e was a boat anchor. Power and durability is what us truck lover's need man now let's c if they can give us power that isn't backed by a weak link like the transmissions that's my dream truck lots of power when u need and not burning ur tranny up

don't like the look at all.... side view looks like a dodge pick up and personally I'll stick to the square bodies myself and the earlier 2000s style bodies

I love how people comment on something looking "Gay", "Cheap",
when they can't even see what it actually looks like!!

Just wait for the reveal!! Unreal!

My favorite feature is the mirrors they borrowed from the Malibu. Game changer!!

Finally round wheel wheels? GM finally reliazed that a round peg does not look good in a square hole.

The 4L60e has been gone for nearly 10 years. The 6L80 is a great transmission and handles a ton of power. Not to mention I'll take the Chevy's 4WD system over the weak plastic garbage Ford uses in their 4WD setup any day.

I could see how a GMSRGREAT wannabe would consider that feature as game changing. Wannabes are easily amused much like a child.

I like the look of the flat topped wheel wells that GM has been known for, same as a lot of older Fords and Dodge had in the good old days. I hope the camo is hiding some of the flat top wheel wells, the round ones look to soft and car like. The rest of the truck will look good, not many ways to shape a pick up to begib with so those that say it looks like xxx brand, i would challenge them to build a truck that doesn't look like other trucks in some regard.

take the 4.3 V6 Silverado for a test ride
you''ll be surpized

The design Looks like a afterthought! to ugly and feminine looking for me......I'll pass and buy a real mans truck.

Tundra looks like a combination of every truck on the market. Tundra added Chevy styling to their truck, it didn't go the other way.

@Joseph

sorry about your bad luck but millions of people had great service from the GM 4 speed auto trans.

I had two of them (one was electronic) and they were both trouble free and never even hiccuped. Since 1990 I've had several Fords with auto trans and only one was really trouble free.

Design cues look to be taken from the GM Trucks of the 1950's and 1960's especially with the mirrors. There's also some influence from the current Colorado, overall...can't wait for the reveal at the NAIAS.
