Look to the Future in the 2019 Silverado

Full-size truck fans in Calumet City can expect a tougher, more capable Silverado to hit the market later in 2018. Chevrolet engineers have combined the benefits of aluminum and high-strength steel to better balance toughness and efficiency than the competition. When compared to previous Silverado models, you’ll gain the following advantages:

  • The floor in the bed of the pickup is made from a tougher grade of steel than before.
  • 12 tie-downs can handle up to 500 pounds of force each, and they’re equipped throughout the bed to better secure oddly shaped cargo.
  • Improved efficiency thanks to systems like start/stop technology, Dynamic Fuel Management, and retooled aerodynamic design.

In addition, a new power tailgate can be added which opens or closes with the push of a button.

New Diesel Engine in 2019

One of the biggest additions to the 2019 Silverado is a brand new diesel engine. Find out more about this tough powerplant:

  • The all-new Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel inline V6 engine is paired with a 10-speed transmission.
  • It will be constructed in Flint, Michigan at the GM Propulsion plant.
  • For customers who prefer gas power, a new 6.2L V8 will be available.

Expect more details including horsepower and torque measurements to be unveiled soon.
