Is the Redesigned 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Different Enough?

NextGenSilverado001 copy II

By Richard Truesdell

Nothing in the automotive universe is more quintessentially American than a full-size pickup truck. The market is a hyper-competitive battlefield between Ford, Chevrolet, GMC and Ram (Toyota and Nissan are smaller niche players). This puts additional pressure on designers and engineers at each brand when introducing an all-new pickup, which is what the Chevrolet team faced when it introduced the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500.

One of the criticisms leveled at the last-generation Chevy half ton was that it wasn't sufficiently different from the truck it replaced. And that's a dilemma when redesigning an iconic truck: It needs to be all-new while still showing a clear lineage to the previous generation.

So, when I had the opportunity to get up close with the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, I jumped at it. The drive day started at the historic Barker Hanger at California's Santa Monica Airport. The former hangar now serves as an event venue. Seven new 2019 Silverados in various trim levels were lined up ala a Chevrolet "Real People" commercial. Our test 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country was equipped with the Z71 Off-Road Equipment Package that includes Rancho twin-tube shocks, electronic hill descent control, two-speed transfer case, skid plates, heavy-duty air filter, 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, dual exhausts on V-8-equipped models.

Here are the key takeaways from my drive.

Exterior

The visual changes to the exterior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are evolutionary rather than revolutionary, dominated by the all-new front grille with functional air curtains. The bodywork is more sculpted than before, giving the truck a more refined look. The bed is 7 inches wider increasing payload capacity and giving the popular crew cab a welcome 3 inches of additional rear-seat legroom. The 2019 trucks weigh up to 450 pounds less than the previous versions due to increased use of lightweight, high-strength materials; that provides a small improvement in fuel economy over the 2018 models.

The 2019 Silverado 1500 can be had in eight trim levels: Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country. Six engines provide an array of permutations. I thought the High Country was well-trimmed, but it falls a bit short of the top trim levels offered by Ford and especially Ram. That might be due in part to sister division GMC offering an even more luxurious truck in the form of its Sierra Denali models.

IMG_20180919_141914822 RT photo copy II

Improvements in fuel economy come from new engines and new technology that improves efficiency across the board. A new turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four-cylinder with stop-start technology becomes the new standard engine for LT and RST trims with an all-new light-duty 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder coming later in 2019. Most noteworthy is Dynamic Fuel Management for the popular 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s. DFM allows the truck to run on one to eight cylinders; it's the next step up from Active Fuel Management, which employs operation of four or eight cylinders. DFM uses 17 different cylinder deactivation modes to maximize efficiency and mileage, making determinations up to 80 times per second. The biggest 6.2-liter V-8 is being offered with a new 10-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Ford.

So how does that affect fuel economy? The two-wheel-drive 2019 Silverado 1500 with the 5.3-liter V-8 and eight-speed transmission gets an EPA-estimated 17/23/19 mpg city/highway/combined; that's a 1 mpg improvement across the board over the 2018. The four-wheel-drive 2019 equipped with 6.2-liter V-8 and 10-speed transmission sees a 1 mpg city improvement over the 2018 equipped with the same engine and the eight-speed transmission. Opting for a turbocharged four-cylinder Silverado 1500 — the first half-ton truck to offer a turbo four — nets 20/23/21 for 2WD and 19/22/20 for 4WD, according to the EPA.

Updated Interior

The interiors of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 have been extensively updated. For those whose priority is towing capability, the new Silverado offers improved tech that simplifies hooking up a trailer. The available Advanced Trailering Package includes the Hitch Guidance with Hitch View that uses up to four cameras and the myChevrolet Trailering App (displayed on your smartphone or the Silverado's multimedia screen) and turns a two-person operation into a one-person job. The app also provides a comprehensive step-by-step checklist.

Maximum towing capacity for the 6.2-liter V-8 with DFM High Country I drove was 12,000 pounds (up 5 percent over 2018), while the max payload capacity for a 4x2 regular cab with the turbo four is 2,500 pounds (an 11 percent improvement over 2018).

Improved safety played a big part of the 2019 redesign, with Chevrolet adding several active safety features including a standard rear camera mirror and available head-up display, surround-vision view, safety alert driver's seat, lane change alert and lane keep assist with lane departure warning, low-speed forward automatic braking, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, lane change alert with blind side alert and rear cross-traffic alert.

Towing Ability

During the drive event, each Silverado was hooked up to a trailer bearing a Polaris all-terrain vehicle, a combination that weighed 6,000 pounds. Leaving Barker Hanger, we negotiated tight Santa Monica streets on our way to the more traffic-friendly lanes of the Pacific Coast Highway on our way to Calamigos Ranch in the Malibu foothills overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

NextGenSilverado019 copy II

The real test was running up Kanan Dunes Road from the PCH and guess what? My driving companion and I could hardly tell the 6,000-pound trailer was behind us. Going downhill, we did feel a small sense of push, but the brakes were more than up to the task. Chevrolet representatives told us the brakes are identical to those on a Chevrolet Silverado 2500. So, despite the larger size of the 2019 Silverado 1500, it has that elusive quality of driving "small," even when towing a trailer. Another nice touch: Chevrolet now puts a truck-specific label on the driver's door that provides that particular truck's maximum towing capacity, maximum payload, gross vehicle weight rating, gross combined weight rating, gross rear axle weight rating, maximum tongue weight and curb weight. That's everything you need to know to tow and haul safely.

Final Thoughts

In my all-too-short test drive to Malibu and back, I came away favorably impressed. It seems that Chevrolet stuck with refining the basics, responding to feedback from its customers, especially with regard to the half ton's trailer-towing abilities. The combination of the auto parking brake assist, stored trailer profiles, an industry-exclusive trailer theft alarm, trailer-tire temperature and pressure sensors, the towing label and a trailer light test accessed through the myChevrolet Trailering App are class-leading.

NextGenSilverado119 copy II

The 2019 Silverado 1500 looks clean and modern, and is instantly identifiable as a Chevrolet. Its improved interior approaches the class-leading Ram 1500 in many ways, while the variety of trim levels and cab configuration approaches those offered by the Ford F-Series.

Bottom line? The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 looks and feels new and fresh. In the hyper-competitive full-size pickup category, this is critical, but I wish they would have gone further. Most people understand brand loyalty is big among pickup owners, even to the degree that Nissan and Toyota have found it difficult to attract Ford, Ram, Chevrolet and GMC owners away from their favorites. So, Chevrolet may have trouble attracting owners of other brands because many of the changes to the 2019 model are simply evolutionary and that may not be enough for a large number of buyers to jump ship. That said, we like the focus on making towing easier and safer and that could attract a few Ford and Ram buyers if towing is their biggest purchase consideration. We'll see.

show a picture of the dark interior of the High Country, looks a lot better than poo brown

@water - speaking about looking poo brown, there are some remarkably dumb people in this world. Thanks for helping me understand that.

@papajim

I'm not sure if I'm 'up to a minute now', but I was wondering what you think of the new GM 2.7 4-cylinder. It seems to me it was a big investment, that doesn't seem on the surface to compete as well as I was thinking it would.

I am kind of hurting though as you mentioned, as I am being forced to go look at some model homes near us (not too excited about that).

@ imposter

Man you seriously have issues.

The 3.5L HO has 2 turbos you dip💩, thats what helps it compete with the 6.2L. Put a blower on that 6.2L and you see what happens. Zl1 vette beats your 3.5L HO GT. So GFY!!

I was comparing GM's 2.7L turbo to Ford's 2.7L turbo bc they're both turbo trucks. Man u seriously are a spineless, gutless, and a coward.

And you don't even drive a truck since you haven't answered my question......so you are a coward! Thanks for proving me right yet again!!

I would like to see Pickup Trucks.com do a comparison between the Ford 2.7 Ecoboost V-6 and the Chevy 2.7 turbo I-4. That would be a better comparison especially if someone is looking for a smaller turbo engine.

The 2019 Silverado. It's a little bit English and a little bit Espanol.

@papajim--Looks like someone is posting with your name continually on this site. They need to monitor this site better.

@TNTGMC - thanks for standing up for me. You’re probably going to click the link to the article as I share it on my Facebook page and think, “Oh God, a mushy letter addressing the thoughts my boyfriend has for me.” Yes, some parts of this letter to you may be sappy and lovey-dovey, but I have just had so much on my mind that I’ve wanted to tell you, and I think now is the time to do it. Some of it may embarrass you, but you deserve to know how lovely you really are.

You have honestly really changed my life in so many positive ways that you possibly couldn’t imagine. TNTGMC came into my life at just the right moment. I don’t know how you did it, but you somehow managed to be truly amazing to me even then. My life wasn’t the best when you first met me. I felt very lost and very alone. Yes, I had my best friend, but they were someone who I constantly feared of upsetting and couldn’t be my full self around. Yes, I had other people in my life, other support systems, and people to talk to. I still did a lot of the same things I do now. Even with all of that stuff, I still felt really empty. I didn’t feel like I had someone who understood me or saw my perspective of life. I felt like I was always looking for someone who would love me for who I truly am, and for a deep connection that I hoped would exist. After a long time of trying and settling, I just stopped looking. I figured that the type of connection I longed for was something non-existent, and that the bonds I had with people were all I was going to get.

I constantly felt like I was living in repetition. I didn’t see things in long term goals, but rather in a day-by-day mindset. I only worried about the here and now, and did not set as many life goals as I have now that I have you TNTGMC. You took my black and white boring world and made it colourful and full of life.

From the first moment I talked to you, I truly felt something. I’m not just saying that to make this sound like some sort of fairytale, but I did feel something TNTGMC. You were the only one who was listening to what I was saying, the only one who could catch my socially awkward phrases and cues, and the only one who got my sense of humour. Thank you TNTGMC!

XXXXOOOOXXXX

@ jeff s

Yes, its a complete @$$ clown named JTT who drives an escort and lives with his parents. He is pathetic. It's quite disrespectful

Wish they would boot him out and make him go to an escort/topaz forum.

Guy is a fuq'n loser

Here they go again papajim. Why don't you leave papajim alone! This is all being done TNTGMC. Children like papajim are acutely aware of the negative language we use, and when we say anti-bullying, what it actually sounds like is anti-bully. It sounds all too reminiscent of the zero-tolerance policies that abound – they sound alright in theory as they appear to mean “we don’t tolerate this behaviour” but they are less appealing when implemented as their reality is: we don’t tolerate this person. When speaking to teachers, parents, and administration, my former PhD supervisor, Dr. Tina Papajim , says: “War not determine who is right, war determine who is left..” Bullying is a serious issue and a man who walks through an airport turnstile sideways is going to Bangkok.

But it’s always important to remember that these behaviours: 1) Man who eats photo of his father, will soon be spitting-image of his father. 2) A woman who wears a jockstrap will have make believe ballroom.

Another apple and orange comparison - If you make the 6.2 force induction in the Silverado, then you cut 2 cylinders off it to make the appropriate size in cc’s.

Otherwise suck it up, the fastest pickup is the 3.5L HO Limited

There is no such car as a ZL1 Corvette you stupid fuq. Time and time again, you prove yourself to have the debate skills of a muslim.

@ fake papajim

Funny you say apples to oranges comparison

What is the 3.5L turbo to the 6.2L NA. Its the same thing you flipping leech

The real comparison is a 5.0L to the 6.2L. Both NA. And when both are configured the same the 5.0L runs 5.9 secs. The 6.2L runs 5.4L secs.

Yet, I ask you, leech, do you have a $75K limited? Ya, I figured you didn't....

All talk and no go

My $42k truck with $2k in upgrades will beat that over priced truck.

And I saved $31k! What a waste of money.....now that's funny

Excuse me. ZR1 corvette u goon

lol. You have to modify your truck to be able to beat a factory showroom stock Ford

Pathetic. Like I said, you have the debate skills of the low IQ muslim

Actually its all stock and I got it from GM's website that's available from GM


So jokes on you imposter!

I ask you again, do u own a limited 3.5L HO?

Your pathetic talking $h!t when you don't even own one. Who's the loser? Mirror, insert foot!

TNTGMC your mama so poor when I saw her kicking a can down the street, I asked her what she was doing, she said "Moving." Your mama so poor she can't afford to pay attention. Your mama so poor when I ring the doorbell I hear the toilet flush. Your mama so poor when she goes to KFC, she has to lick other people's fingers. TNTGMC your mama so poor she went to McDonald's and put a milkshake on layaway.

TNTGMC your mama so poor your family ate cereal with a fork to save milk. Your mama so poor her face is on the front of a foodstamp. Your mama so poor she was in K-Mart with a box of garbage bags. I said, "What ya doin'?" She said, "Buying luggage." Your mama so poor she waves around a popsicle stick and calls it air conditioning.

TNTGMC your mama so poor she has the ducks throw bread at her.

@TNTGMC

I too would very much like to see the comparison of the GM 2.7 to the Ford 2.7, and also with the Ram 3.6. My thinking is that Ford will run away with the 0-60 testing, GM second and Ram third. Even though GM is in last place on the mpg ratings, I am thinking they could possibly win in the real-world. GM has said "don't pay attention to the EPA numbers", implying that they could win in real-world mpg. I currently have a 5.3 V8, and am generally satisfied with the combination of power/mpg. If I were buying a GM half-ton today, I would definitely want the 6.2.

@TNTGAY

“ Actually its all stock and I got it from GM's website that's available from GM “

Liar

“ Actually its all stock and I got it from GM's website that's available from GM “

You didn’t buy it with these so called upgrades you speak of. And post this link for these $2000 upgrades you went back for to have a dealer add and install to your truck.


The Off Road Performance Package is available on 2019 Sierra AT4...

And it’s $5k

Keep up the lies. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel exposing the liar you are

@ imposter

They are all dealer installed factory warranty included! Currently 11,539 miles on truck. When warranty is up, I will tune it, plus possibly supercharge it. Friend just bought 15 corvette with a Pro charger, exhaust, CAI, and long tube headers and its an amazing machine.

Borla-gm exhaust...
GM cold air intake..

Borla claims 17 HP...I talked to them personally. Was debating them or corsa...borla has partnered with GM. So went with them

Cold Air....IDK exact HP?? If you read about them, it's anywhere from 5 to 10HP, but sounds so much better and it looks cleaner too. Gets rid of that factory restricted "bat-wing" looking plastic intake tube.

Yes, I have raced a 17 Raptor and it did not win. It was a 50 mph dig to around 80.
I have raced a plethora of other EcoBoosts trucks and they haven't been close.

Now answer my question leech.

Do you own a limited 3.5L HO?
If not, what do you own?

@ imposter

First off that's a 2019 package

You have to know where to shop and habe dealership match prices

https://www.shopchevyparts.com

In all factory installed with labor. $2k

Now answer my questions.

Thanks for admitting your truck isn’t factory stock and and supposedly has dealer installed modifications.

You are as stupid as they come.

I'm currently own a 2011 F150, and my last truck was a Silverado diesel. My next truck will be a Ram Limited 4x4 Crew Cab. Best interior by far, least amount of aluminum, great V-8 sound!

Yes sir it is considered factory stock bc all of those are GM performance parts that are add on and doesn't hurt the warranty. Thats why I had dealer install them...they can come from factory with those parts. Same thing.

So please know what your talking about

So is your true username "nlp" ??

Now have a great day.

Those are dealer installed modifications. Not factory stock. Factory stock is the way a vehicle rolls of the factory floor. GM Shills are the stupidest

Learn the difference

Listen u imposter/spineless clown

If I had ordered it from factory off assembly line or the way I did it. It's the same d@mn thing you moron. Call my dealership....they view it same way. Woodhouse GMC!!

GM views it the same and doesn't mess with factory warranty.

Now, Please move along and get your own name.

And the fact still remains, you don't own a limited truck and never will.....so please stop talking trash.

You call me a liar, yet, I answer all your questions. U answer none of mine and you are still so cowardly that you continue to use papajim's username
That's pathetic!

I think this is a good example of the Chevy and G.M.C. The Box G.M. trucks were the most rugged looking in my opinion. It's boxy with some curves.

That trail Boss looks trick. 6.2L V8 rumbling under the hood.

Borla exhaust and CIA aren’t/weren’t factory options on a 2018 Sierra

And the factory doesn’t do one off’s on an assembly line you bone head.

You should know that. Mind you, you’re the clown that thinks there’s a ZL1 Corvette

To all,

I owe most of you a sinceere apology for always treating you so badly. Pickuptrucks.com is a really great site, but I just have trouble not calling people idiots, jerks, morons and any other demaning names that come to mind. I made a new years resolution to myself to start treating you, my friends in the online community a little better this year. Can't we all just get along? If I ever mistreat any of you going forward, please don't hesitate to let me know as that will help me behave better in the future. We are all in this together.

Yours in brothelry love,

papajim

The 2019 looks bad.
I thought the 2003 front end refresh, Japanimation style, was bad, this thing looks like the Tundra designers were stolen away.

Gadgets, gizmos, that’s neat.

But, it is lower, GM even made their own leveling kit because so many dealers were installing them before they left the lots.
6.2 only available in upper trims, and a Turbo 4.

Yeah, millions of hours/miles, that’s true.
Per the old DPG truck Engineering manager, the Gov-Loc has a near 100% failure rate off road, but GM still uses it.
I guess that’s why they towed an Off-Road machine rather than building a truck that is worth a warm bucket of spit off road.

Small turbo engines have outrageously high BSFC under load, especially towing. The advantage is empty commuting.

The ground clearance of the 2014-18 GM trucks wasn't much different than a 2015-19 F-150. The perception that the 2019 GM trucks are appreciably lower is simply because most of the trucks reviewed have low hanging steps attached. The 2019 Trailboss has the exact same ground clearance as a 2018 Silverado with a leveling kit. In other words, a stock 2019 Silverado has the same ground clearance as a stock 2018 Silverado. The 2015-19 F-150 is at a disadvantage compared to the Trailboss since Ford thinks a guy that wants a little more ground clearance for their F-150 can just buy a $60k Raptor instead.

That would depend on which "Gov-Loc" youre talking about. Most of the negative perception with the G80 was started back when GM was putting the G80 in a 10-bolt rear axle and using them on trucks. When GM reworked the 14-bolt SF rear axle from the 3/4-ton gas trucks into a 12-bolt version, that gave the G80 a lot more room for strengthening the design. Failures with the current 12-bolt G80 are no more common than are failures with the E-locker that Ford finally started to offer in the F-150. The E-locker doesn't exactly have a real good reputation in off-roading circles.

The G80 works fine. They generally fail when guys start screwing around and doing burnouts and whipping donuts in parking lots.

10-4

The G80 is a terrific differential. It was not designed for the Baja 1000. It intended for light truck use.

Which it is perfect for.

People who want a bomb-proof diff have a whole host of choices for off-road competition or drag racing, but the basic Eaton mechanical locker is an excellent choice for most applications. If you want to do burn outs and wreck your hardware that's your business.

@ fake papajim

Again, your an absolute leech. If you went to GM in 2014 to 2018 and ordered your truck with GM's performance exhaust (borla) and CIA from assembly line you could do it. I did it at the dealership. It's a perfomance upgrade from factory that does nothing to your warranty. It's no different than the new outrageously overpriced $5k package for AT4. Where do you think they got it from bonehead.....many where doing it in 2014 to 2018.

You know absolutely nothing about it bc your a parasite that destroys this site. You probably don't even own a truck.

You still can't answer the questions I asked you. Your a millenial loser who can't find a job or a home so sit on your computer wanting to be somebody, you'll actually never be.

Why must there be soooooooo much character assignation to the posted comments on almost every article every day? Those comments add absolutely no value to any topic. The idea that people feel the need to teardown complete strangers for their own enjoyment or to make them feel better about themselves is a sad thing indeed.

"Social Media" should be referred to for what it truly is: "Anti-Social Media"

@TNTGAY

“ Again, your an absolute leech. If you went to GM in 2014 to 2018 and ordered your truck with GM's performance exhaust (borla) and CIA from assembly line you could do it. “

Wrong. It’s was only a dealer installed option. Not factory, not assembly line.

I know it’s hard for you to comprehend...after all, you think there’s a ZL1 Corvette

Moron

There is absolutely no way that load was 6000 lbs. Trailers like that run about 2500 lbs and that rzr is probably 1500. So you are around 4000 lbs. Nowhere near 6000.

From what I've seen, the bigger MLocker (aka G80) are a solid locker. They don't have the push button convenience of the E-locker but they have similar durability. The big thing that can damage them is hammering on them with one tire on dry pavement and the other in the air or loose terrain. It's a mechanical device and will lock when the difference in tire speed is big enough. If you gun it all of the sudden, it'll lock up HARD. If you ease into the gas to lock it, it's plenty tough once locked. I think Bob is right here. The tiny little 10-bolt was the real problem with the G80. The tiny ring gear meant there was barely any room for a locker. That was one of the big things I used to dislike about GM half-tons. The 9.75" and 9.5" 12-bolt is a pretty stout axle that is indeed based on the 14-bolt SF used on the HD gasser trucks. Plenty of beef there. The E-locker is convenient but I would rate its strength as being similar to the MLocker. The E-locker design is simpler mechanically but there are moving parts that can and will fail. Personally, I prefer the TrueTrac. I think OEM's would use it if it wasn't for the cost of all the planetary helical gears it requires.

@ fake @$$ papajim

Again, its like talking to a downs syndrome kid about algebra. Your an embarassment to society.

Please just stop. And I missed typed a zl1 for a zr1. I know difference. The camaro smokes any rustang and the corvette beats a gt that cost 3 times more than it does. That's pathetic

Again, answer my question. What do you drive?

You do a fantastic job of deflecting and insulting, yet, u can't man up and use your own name! Hmmmm....who's the cowardly moron?

@TNTGAY

You stop with your lies. You claim a typo. But the educated see that it is another error in a long line of your mistakes and misinformation.

You’ve ruined this site with your lies, falsehoods, deceit and misinformation.

@TNTGAY (TNTGMC)

I have been doing some thinkin about my last post. Maybe I have been a little harsh on you. It all of the sudden came to me that here I am judging you by the speck in your eye, while I have a plank in my own. Please accept my apology, I will try in the future not to judge you so harshley.

@ fake papajim

U have split personalities?

Why don't you answer my question?

Why don't you use your own username?

Grow a pair of b@lls already.

It is amazing
and entertaining how far the discussion has strayed from the actual topic. To hopefully get back on track I offer an opinion. I think Chevrolet took a very ,very conservative approach, mostly to not alienate the current base of buyers, which they could ill afford to do at this time . RAM is now on the verge of moving up to number two and Chevrolet falling to third. The down play of the use of aluminum is also in keeping with not upsetting the base. The unfortunate path that GM chose, of negative advertising against Ford in their use of aluminum has now come back to cause the need to de emphasis GM's use of aluminum .

Out side the fact that 4 wheels and a steering wheel is implemented, as in the previous Silverado, the new Silverado is radically different looking. Remember the square wheel openings you continually harped about, those, are gone. Several new engines offered now. Please explain the items you feel are conservative.
