Today Chevrolet revealed the all-new 2019 Silverado pickup to owners in Texas. The reveal is our first official look at the new truck and is intended as part of the company’s truck centennial celebration.
Known as the T1XX trucks, the 2019 Silverado is all-new, which is instantly noticeable from the design. The new look appears to be somewhat revolutionary versus today’s model, with influence from the Colorado along the body lines and sloping roof line.
So far Chevy is only showing us the 2019 Silverado LT Trail Boss, one of eight new trim levels according to the company. GM is expected to reveal the rest next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Aside from an official look at one trim level, Chevy isn’t saying much else about their new truck. It is expected to sport new powertrains and extensive mass-reduction efforts, including the possibility of a carbon fiber bed.
GM is spending about $3 billion on its new trucks with investments into its plants in Michigan, Indiana and Mexico. Production is expected to commence on both the 2019 Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra in mid-2018.
