With a century of building trucks under their belt, Chevrolet has released the 2019 Silverado. In a press release over the weekend, we see a recap of a historic party that was held in Dallas. The event was held at Texas Motor Speedway, with the new truck arriving via a big Sikorsky helicopter.
Instead of starting with engine or efficiency improvements, Chevy hit the competition right in the bed. Making light of the aluminum used by the blue oval team, the new Silverado has a bed of high strength steel. Eight models will be available at launch, being led by the LT Trailboss. It combines the heavy-duty Z71 suspension with a 2″ lift, making it the only lifted pickup backed by a factory warranty.
Over 7,000 Silverado owners provided feedback in the design phase, which is a drop in the bucket when considering the 85 Million trucks that Chevy has built. Hopefully, a few of the focus groups advocated for the Corvette ZR1 engine in a regular cab short bed, so stay with us for all of your Chevrolet news.
