2018 Chevrolet Silverado Release, Specs and Review

Sponsored Links

Modern pickups are amenity-packed multitasking machines, and the Silverado is no exception. The ride is smooth and the cabin quiet, but handling and braking are only average. A 4.3-liter V-6 with 305 lb-ft of torque and a six-speed automatic is standard; optional V-8s are a 5.3-liter with 383 lb-ft and a 6.2-liter with 460 lb-ft. An eight-speed automatic is standard with the 6.2-liter and optional with the 5.3-liter. Maximum towing capacity is 12,500 pounds.

Chevrolet has rolled out the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which wears buff new bodywork and sits on a completely redesigned frame. The latest Silverado promises to be lighter and more capable than its predecessor, but unlike the Ford F-150, which uses aluminum bodywork for both the cab and the bed to trim pounds, the 2019 Silverado reserves the lighter material for its hood, doors, and tailgate. The Chevy’s roof, fenders, and bed are once again made of steel. Chevy claims to have trimmed as much as 450 pounds from the crew-cab V-8 2019 Silverado relative to its predecessor, including 88 pounds from the body and another 88 pounds taken out of the frame.

Bigger Is Better

The 2019 Silverado 1500 isn’t just lighter than its predecessor, it’s also bigger, with a wheelbase that’s as much as 3.9 inches longer than the current truck’s. Overall length is up as well, with the new truck casting a shadow 1.6 inches longer than before.

The larger footprint improves rear-seat comfort in the four-door crew cab, as legroom grows from 40.9 inches to 43.8 inches. Along with the additional stretch-out space, Chevy managed to squeeze in two large storage bins in the rear seatbacks, as well as storage space under the rear seat bottoms.

No matter the cab configuration, every 2019 Silverado gets a larger bed that offers almost seven inches of extra floor width. An available power-operated tailgate is new and allows consumers to open and close the tailgate via the key fob or a cabin-mounted button.

Sufficiently Efficient

Chevrolet is offering a total of six different powertrain combinations. Two new gasoline V-8 engines—a 5.3-liter unit and a 6.2-liter—promise improved efficiency by way of General Motors’ new Dynamic Fuel Management system, which can cut fuel flow to between one and seven cylinders as conditions permit.
