The 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is bigger, stronger, and lighter than the previous model year, with new engine options and technology for better-than-ever fuel efficiency and performance. The Silverado 1500’s new styling and industry-first features make it one of the most advanced, work-friendly, and accessible full-size light duty pickup trucks ever made.
The 2019 Silverado 1500 updates include all-new styling, such as a new grille segmented by a bar where the bowtie emblem sits, redesigned headlight configurations, and a sleeker look to the hood and wheel wells.
The Silverado 1500 has a bigger bed with more cargo space than ever, thanks in part to a redesign that changes the size of the wheel wells, bringing the bed volume up to 63 cubic feet in the short bed — significantly more than leading competitors.
New engines and transmissions
Sporting six-speed, eight-speed, and 10-speed automatic transmission options, plus a versatile engine lineup including a new 3.0-liter turbo-diesel, the 2019 Silverado 1500 has something for every truck driver. It can also tow and haul more than ever, with several trims getting a huge boost to their max weight capacity.
The new Silverado 1500 is made entirely of high-strength steel, as opposed to the more flimsy aluminum, but it still manages to drop hundreds of pounds compared to the outgoing model. Combined with new Dynamic Fuel Management technology, the 2019 Silverado 1500 is incredibly fuel-efficient.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 boasts the GM-exclusive power up/down tailgate, an industry-first technology that lets you open and close the tailgate with the press of a button. It also delivers updates like standard power controls for the AWD system and heated front seats, among other premium features.
