2019 Silverado Makes Best Truck Even Better

Exactly 100 years after Chevy delivered its first truck to customers, the company unveiled the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado. The new Silverado is light years away from that first delivery, offering a lighter weight and more power than ever before. That adds up to better performance and fuel efficiency, something all truck lovers seek whether they use their vehicle for a daily commute, on the job or for weekend recreation. “With the all-new Silverado, we’ve taken the best truck on the road and made it even better,” according to GM VP Mark Reuss. “It has a longer wheelbase, more passenger and cargo volume, and yet, thanks to our mixed materials strategy and mass reduction expertise, the new truck is 450 pounds lighter than the current model.” You’ll be able to see all eight models of the new Silverado at Freeway Chevrolet this fall.

Job is to Make Best Truck Available

“Truck customers value capability and functionality above all else,” according to Chief Engineer Tim Herrick. “Every truck – including the luxurious High Country – is a work truck with a job to do. As such we set out to create the best tool for the job at hand, one that makes work more productive and more enjoyable, no matter what they call work.” The 2019 Chevy Silverado will offer the best cargo room in its class, no matter the bed length. Despite the massive loss in weight, Chevy differentiates itself from its main competitor by retaining its high-strength steel floor in the bed. The weight loss comes from using mixed materials throughout the truck, opting for aluminum and composite materials where it makes sense and retaining steel in high impact points.

Six Different Engine/Transmission Options

Optimizing fuel economy without sacrificing power was the goal of Chevy engineers for the 2019 Silverado. With a new 3.0L inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel along with the existing 6.2L diesel and new 5.3L and 6.2L gas engines, Chevy has given its customers more choices than any other truck maker when it comes to combining, value, efficiency and performance. The gas engines offer Dynamic Fuel Management to shut off a varying number of cylinders, depending on load, to increase efficiency. Start/stop technology also helps increase fuel mileage numbers.

Comfortable Interiors a Top Priority

Chevy Silverado customers have told the company in no uncertain terms that comfortable seating is a top priority, and designers met the challenge with the new Silverado. The cab has been stretched, offering 3 more inches of legroom in the crew cab model. Every nook and cranny has been utilized for both ergonomics and function. Whether you choose the basic Work Truck or the fully-loaded High Country model, the new Chevy Silverado offers everything you need for both work and play. See it and take a test drive this fall at Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler.
