2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Photo Gallery: Trim Level Lineup

Ccl_6566jpg_38787739705_o

Although it may not look like it at first glance, there's plenty of change inside, underneath and outside the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Our only gripe is that Chevy didn't release all the information truck buyers need during the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Instead, the truckmaker will parcel it out over the next few months. Nonetheless, our photographers got up close to the new pickup to create the gallery you see below. Here are some of the highlights of the Silverado's new trim level lineup.

It's called watching your step!!! Put your entire foot into bumper step and you will be fine. Have done it many times while docking boat quickly because of rain. If your cautious, you will be fine.

If that the case, they should recall it for a sticker that reads "Watch your step."

I am friggin kidding, have a good weekend Dude!

The exterior design is okay it will sell, Its definitely a lot better/improvement over the current truck, The only negatives I can personally see outside is the short hood/front end, If it was another 2-3 inches longer it look better. I do wish they done some type of hood scoop or vents in the trail boss's hood!

Inside this is where it starts! The new 4wd/lighting controls is a awesome update and also the new steering wheel. The overall design of the front and rear seats, doors panels, rear HVAC vents and the flat floor it looks nice! great job! Only thing I wished they added was a twin panel moon roof. But that dash design and center console looks awful, Sorry.... I liked the current trucks a lot better.

The Ram definitely got a nicer dash/center console design, But its not a huge lot of a nicer interior. The exterior is also but I am not liking the front bumper with those tiny fog lights.

Way too much packed into a small space. Too busy. A glorified Lego. A look that will wear out overnight.

@ Frank

Can u ever have a normal conversation!! I was stating a point. I own a 17 Sierra..i use the step all the time. You dont!! All you want to do is bash, bash, bash...and then argue, argue, argue.

It's a complete and epic success compared to Ford's failure that u can only use while not towing, plus Ford's is mechanical Nd parts do go out so you'll have to fix them....you won't have to with the GM steps.

Have a great weekend and cheer up fella!!!

After watching this video it's amazing how fast the F150 went from being the new kid to looking dated. Not sure what the white chevy work truck is doing there in the end since they never showed the Ford equivalent lol. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pd80vkzkROw

@Oilfield

One you forgot: Try making any kind of steel without coal. Just sayin'


Posted by: papajim | Jan 19, 2018 3:49:03 PM


Electric induction furnace. We had electric furnaces that could melt 30 tons of iron a load.

No coal necessary and very old tech.

GM bashed Ford for using alumninum and then built a truck that is half aluminum. You can't make this up.

Posted by: Admin | Jan 19, 2018 10:33:15 AM

It's not half aluminum, Frank! Only the hood, front and rear doors, tailgate and upper control arms are aluminum!!!

@TNTGMC,

Of course I don't own a '17 GMC, I'm not stupid. Enjoy your Truck.

Your responses say otherwise.

And thanks I will enjoy it!

Left and right side and front body panels are aluminum. That's 3 out of 4 or 75% aluminum around the passengers. Thanks for playing..

Again it doesn't matter that it's 75% aluminum. They only bashed ford bc of the bed. Nothing else. GM had aluminum hoods back in 2014...idk if sooner than that.

I believe that Honda, Nissan and Toyota have better trucks. I'm quite serious.

Really? That satirical bit on “Aluminum Man” is not a dig on the material itself? And then there’s the one with the bears, and if that’s not a criticism of aluminum, I do not know what is.

https://youtu.be/_HnCKV8cwSs

@ Alex

That's funny....i never saw that before!!!

Gotta admit...u got me there!!! Lol

Atleast bed is still steel! Otherwise it would look horrible for GM.

Where is the RST? Thats the one I would buy.

As explained on the previous page only the hinged panels are aluminum. This in no way adds up to 75%. The bears commercial was in reference to a steel cage. The 19 Silverado uses a steel cage. They also use a full steel bed. Chevy knows there is a place for aluminum but also firmly believes that it should not replace steel in certain key areas of the truck. This is why they made light of an all aluminum truck. Not that hard to understand guys. http://www.repairerdrivennews.com/2018/01/16/2019-chevy-silverado-cuts-up-to-450-lbs-with-aluminum-closures-higher-strength-steel/

Well i sure do like this new GM truck. The diesel is icing on the cake.Interior is nice and functional.

I have to laugh at all of those (and you know who you are) who were saying that GM would be going all aluminum and bringing a man step and turbo V6. Here is a update, you were wrong as usual. Maybe this is why I have notice all those new commenting names. LOL!

GM fanboys do a lot of forgetting. They forgot they were supposed to hate aluminum but now front of the a pillar is all aluminum and pkastic and the rear end is aluminum. Lol.

@ Alex

Do yourself a favor and get educated before you speak. Only the hood is aluminum forward of the a pillar. (cage, front fenders, frame and bumper are steel.) Also the only aluminum panel on the rear is the tailgate. If you look at the link it shows exactly whats steel and aluminum. http://www.repairerdrivennews.com/2018/01/16/2019-chevy-silverado-cuts-up-to-450-lbs-with-aluminum-closures-higher-strength-steel/

I live in a mountain state wouldn't think of taking this or any new truck for that matter off road out here it would not make it

The current Silverado is built cheap and generic.
No sound installation , loud road-tire noise
The dashboard shakes up and down when you hit a bump
The door glass is thin and tempered where it fogs up too easy
Lock up torque converter noise
Transmission constantly shifts up and down for the right gear
Plastic and foam front bumpers
always electrical problems with any Chevy
driveline vibration between 45-60 mph

The price of diesel was about 40cents higher than gas in Fremont as I jogged by a station tonight. Sure some here love the I6 promised in 2019, but boy with the price premium they all charge for those engines, breakeven will be a ways out for many. It seems that the turning point all occured at time of the VW dieselgate fiasco. And with talk of Gasoline CompressionIgnition perhaps that has helped take the sails out of diesel refinery investment. 5 years ago I thought diesel would of made its comeback by now, but it just seems like it isn't so for the masses, ie same ol story in USA.
GMs done a lot of nice work on this truck, but it still is a brick front end anyway one looks at it. What's the CD on it by gosh, but obviously some here love the Mack truck look. I hope the double cab grew too so I don't think about fitting crew cab 6.5' bed in garage anymore! So here you have it, the full size has grown more so the midsize will look smaller. Then people can't say the mid size is 90% of a full size. The bed looks to have grown width wise. Could make it more interesting. Toolbox that opens inward: that's like the Ridgeline with a spare that can't be accessed when bed loaded. Corner steps look helpful. Not sure why the bashing. If your excuse is you might slip when it's wet, well maybe a nice orange safety sticker that says SLIPPERY WHEN WET will help. My God, how about some grip tape. My God.

I'm just not a fan of the styling.

The current F-series is built cheap and generic.

Any pics w tow mirrors?

Is steering wheel center now?

Will GM still offer HD tow pkg?

Good to see more back seat room. Finally!

Impressed GM finally moved trailer brake controller to right-side. That was a deal breaker for me. Kinda like Ram rotary shifter.

Not a Chevy guy (if anything prefer Sierra last 20 years) but I don't mind it at all. Looks like GM is trying here. Unlike new Ram which looks half azzed.

Overall between new Ram and Silverado I'd much sooner take a Chevy crew with 6.2L. All black please.

Do they offer a bigger gas tank, 3.73 gears, or 8 speed trans on lower trim levels with the 5.3? This is why I switched to Ram awhile back. 32 gallon tank, 3.92 gears, and 8 speed trans on any model. Chevy restricts these options unless you buy a expensive crew cab model.

The 5.3 V8 in the Silverado is a dog.
You'll be better off to go with the 4.3 V6 if your heart is set on owning one
The 6.2 V8 is a pricey option but will give you some added performance to maybe keep up with the F-150 Eco-Boost.

The F-150 offers center console floor shift with bucket seats that Silverado does NOT have

As much as I detest Ram you'll be better off with a Ram than a Silverado

I know u can get it but they are rare with 3.73 rear end. I have 3.42 rear end , 8 spd and 5.3L. They make you upgrade to higher trims for that gear and a 6.2L.....thats one thing GM needs to correct. Lower trims get bigger engines or lower gears.

Just watching Barrett Jackson auction live and there are beautiful restored and modified GM's with GM drivetrains and there are beautiful restored and modified Fords with GM engines. LOL!

All the new GM trucks I have test drive lately have been really quiet inside, and drove and handled great. Never felt any weird shifting with the transmissions. The GM trucks seem more refined and quiet compared to the Ford and Ram. My ecoboost is not even 2 years old and feels loose and a bunch of interior rattles already. I wish Ford would have had a new F150 coming in 2019 to compete with Ram and GM's new designs. So far the GM is on the top of my list of 1/2 tons, especially because of an Inline Diesel engine.
If you like your ecoboost then good, but bashing other brands has me thinking you have never driven them much, especially bashing a truck that no one has had the opportunity to test drive. Also makes me wonder if you are bashing other brands just to make your ecoboost look better. I am not too happy with my ecoboost, it uses way too much fuel when towing, and as a daily driver, and the F150 is just to plain looking now with the new competition looking so sharp and aggressive.

My brother's 2015 Sierra is quieter than my 2016 F-150. Mine has a little wind noise. The seats in mine aren't as good. Never noticed either truck having thinner or thicker glass than the other lol. We both have hard downshifts every once in a while. It's something I see posts about on both GM and Ford transmissions. They seem hold up just fine despite it. His Sierra has a steel bumper so not sure whhere you.'re getting plastic and foam bumpers from. Between our trucks, Ilm the only one that has had an electrical problem. The 2015+ F-150's have plenty of complaints for transmission TC shudder and dash rattles too BTW. You might want to do some research before you start throwing stones in your glass house bro. I like my Ecoboost but I would be just as happy with a GM truck. They're way nicer than they were 10 years ago and the trucks are solid and reliable.

I will have to admit, the new Chevy is a good looking truck, very bold, aggressive, and stylish. Even though I currently own a Ram, the new 1/2 ton Ram is not nearly as nice ad the Chevy release.

3.5 Ford, Yamaha R1
How Dare You! I work for a company that has a fleet of different pickups and vans that I drive!
The most comfortable truck is the Ram
If I had to choose a truck for an all day long distance drive I would choose the Ram
The Silverado feels like it's falling apart, every small pebble I run over I can feel it, the truck shakes, vibrates , I can see the whole dashboard move up and down when I hit a bump, in cold weather I can't stop the door glass from fogging up, my feet are freezing due to no cab insulation, and the 5.3 engine is so s-l-o-w i'm afraid to pass anybody up knowing it doesn't have the power to do it.

Ok, I was wrong; I didn't think anybody could make a truck any uglier. Yeesh!

First off, why did they 'borrow' the Ford headlights? Oh, sure, they went low profile on them compared to Ford's more prominent style, but that same center notch that really serves no purpose?

And come on, now! That nose is even more of a brick than the previous one! That is one flat slab of plastic the engine has to shove through the wind. Textured, perhaps, but by no means aerodynamic in the least. And if anything, even taller than those fake Big Rig grills by raising the fenders to the height of the hood. It looks like a child's cardboard box concept with painted grillwork... or maybe one of those very early Soapbox Derby beasts with a wood-work copy of a '50s grill design made out of plywood. I sure as heck don't see any Coefficient of Drag improvement out of that. It may be there, but it shore don't look like it.

I can't say they're going backwards; at least those old '50s trucks had SOME curves to them. This thing is clearly a three-box truck that they didn't even bother to TRY and round any corners!

Nice looking truck.

@ GM thinks their great ... Just watching Barrett Jackson auction live and there are beautiful restored and modified GM's with GM drivetrains and there are beautiful restored and modified Fords with GM engines. LOL!

Hmmmm I heard dozens of times over the last several days about how MOST hot rodders use the Famous FORD 9" rear ends in almost all the modified cars/trucks, including GM.
Don't believe me, gone listen!!!

" Chevy's always have electrical problems."

Huh? When did that happen? I've never had any problems with my 7 yr. old Sierra, electrical or mechanical. Routine maintenance only.

The bumper step wasn't introduced in '14. They had them on the Avalanche in '02. Promptly abandoned a year later.

I read in a SCCA Super Car Club of America magazine yesterday that steel is up to 16 times stronger than that produced in the 70s.
Roadwhale agrees with me on the presumably bad CoeffDrag. Obviously many love it. I'll admit it is hard to not look at a vehicle on the road when it is that big and shiny, but definitely never plays into the hand of efficiency. Obviously some could care less about an extra 2 mi per gallon. How quickly we forget about the pain of $5 gallon gas prices. I love peddling to work when not raining, but admit I'm not the most rule abiding.. It's freeing and refreshing airwise, and in cars its such a waste of time at stop lights that are programmed all wrong. I watch lots of cars stay behind a light, when nothing is even close to going through intersection at the cross direction, at which point I double check for police and go through. Monthly I probably have another $20-$40 in my pocket from not having to fill up.

Sports car not Super

@ RoadWhale

If anything the headlights are similar to the Tahoe with the headlight up top, notch that flows into the fender and parklamp below. The F150 notch is on the opposite side and runs into the grill. Everyone tries to say Chevy copied Ford but I don't see it. The updated 18 F150 grill however with its slim stacked headlights and split bar grill certainly borrows some chevy design cues. The only F150 cue I can even see in the new Silverado is possibly the side window profile but even then it is far closer to the Colorado than the F150 with its window dip. As far as drag coefficient one of the engineers said the new truck improved substantially over the previous model. Part of the reason is the front fender air inlets and roof spoiler on the rear of the cab.

@ Budsy47 --Interesting observations. There will be some rapid changes in technology over the next 5, 10, and 20 years which seem like science fiction now but will be reality. Eventually most of us will not own cars or trucks but that is a ways off. Eventually we will not be using coal and our oil consumption will drastically go down. Energy wise we as a country have barely scratched the surface of alternative sources available to us. Nuclear energy that is safer and methane gas generated from our landfills and sewer plants could meet most of our electrical generation. This will all take some time but it is doable and along with wind, solar, geothermal, and hydro could well give us an abundance of energy. American has an abundance of resources and the sources that I have mentioned just scratch the surface of what resources we have available. There are some exciting but challenging times ahead.

Makes the other two trucks look dated. Will be best seller in calendar year 2019.

Posted by: RoadWhale™ | Jan 21, 2018 6:55:59 AM

Those of you that see F-150 headlights here are delusional. If anytning, Ford ripped off the Chevy stacked headlight look. The designers of this truck said that the center notch combined with the air curtain intakes,combine to give the truck a Spartan helmet look. The Spartan look is most obvious on the Trail Boss.

Even GM's designers know nobody wants a bubbly round truck. The 97-03 F-150 is the Pontiac Aztec of the truck world for a reason. You may love that hideous monstronsity that is the 2nd gen Ridgeline, but the vast majority of truck buyers prefer squarebody trucks. And rounded does not equate to aerodynamic. Look at how blocky the 2015-17 F-150's are and they have a pretty good drag coefficient.The 2019 Silverado's air curtain intakes and the short spoiler on the back of the cab must be pretty effective because GM engineers claimed this truck has a better drag coefficient than many midsize SUV's. I believe they even claimed that it would have class leading coefficient of drag, although that might not be counting the 2019 Ram with its active air dam aka active snow scoop.

XXXXXXXXXXXX

I sure as heck don't see any Coefficient of Drag improvement out of that. It may be there, but it shore don't look like it.

Posted by: RoadWhale™ | Jan 21, 2018 6:55:59 AM

That's not what GM engineers are saying so far. We'll find out in the months to come.

Active aerodynamics: grille shutters, air dam and air suspension.
Great technology to improve mpg, but all because Chevy's gotta keep the tough guy persona of a Mack truck block front end. Self defeating. Air suspension is good for dropping height, but friend had to replace all four pumps on his Land Rover because one went bad. And of course some prescribe to the philosophy of replace the other three too because they'll go bad too, which is not a 100% accurate philosophy either. It's a philosophy. At least Ram has more of a dipping hood and side fenders. My other friend has a Lamborghini who's air dam goes up about 2in for those parking lot speed bumps. He knows ZERO about cars so he's been paying plenty for repairs. He wants me to buy it but he's made way too many mods for me to want to touch anymore. So I see an electric motor for the grill and one for air dam. Electric motors burn out. I had to replace the door lock one in my M3, and when I took it apart, I saw one of the two internal motors, burned out. One for pushing the lock up, one for pulling it down. Yah, I've saved a bundle doing repairs myself, but don't care to spend my weekends that way. All this tech needed because battery cars are knocking on the profit door of oil and big 3 industry.

Today saw $3.29 diesel, $2.82 unleaded. San jose, Ca. Clearly less than $5 gas of ~2010.
In jet and turboprop engines, they use a form of diesel that is usually 50-99cents less than this country's abundant use of 100octane low lead general aviation fuel.

Airport I fly out of.
http://airnav.com/airport/krhv
$4.19 jet A, $4.85 100LL
No Mack truck front ends in airplanes because it KILLS aerodynamics at those high speeds.

Scroll all way down airport link to see gas prices.

First time I heard of coefficient of drag was when I bought my '89 M3. I still have the car and brochure. Brochure says CD = 0.33. I think Chevy said their truck was 0.345? Which I know is quite good for a truck. Clearly they'll eventually improve that in yet the next gen. I've had my M3 up to 150mph once but took forever to get there with it's 2.3liter 16valve, FI, NA, 195hp, 10.5:1 compression engine. Car seemed to squat a little, at that speed, with it's unactive airdam and trunk inverted wing. 2733lbs helped too. So yes weight and aerodynamics all makes a difference.

Electric induction furnace. We had electric furnaces that could melt 30 tons of iron a load. No coal necessary and very old tech....Posted by: andrwken

@andrwken

You can make all the cast iron you want with the furnace you just described. To make steel you'll need an additional ingredient.

Iron ore + Carbon = Steel

Where will you get the enormous amount of carbon needed to make steel on any kind of industrial scale without coal?
