Chevrolet has finally disclosed the pricing information for 2019 Silverado pickup. The new price tag shows a price decrease for some trim levels, while higher-end versions are going to see a price hike.
Perhaps strategically, Chevrolet is lowering the price tag on its highest volume Silverado, the Crew Cab LT, by about $700. The reduction comes despite Chevy’s claim the 2019 model offers more standard features and the company’s new 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Start-stop technology will also come standard on this truck.
“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability and value,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “The next-gen Silverado continues that tradition — offering more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities and a lower starting at MSRP on our highest volume model.”
Not all Silverado’s are seeing a price reduction, though. The 2019 Silverado High Country is seeing a price increase of $1,000, but Chevy notes the truck offers far more standard features for that $1,000 hike.
In addition to pricing information, Chevrolet is also announcing the official capability and EPA fuel economy ratings for most variants of the 2019 Silverado:
- Crew cab Silverado models increase in payload up to 14 percent, or 340 pounds.
- The 4.3L V-6 now offer a maximum of 8,000 pounds towing, up 400 pounds (regular cab, rear-wheel-drive models).
- The 5.3L V-8 with Max Towing Package now offers a maximum of 11,600 pounds towing, up 400 pounds (double-cab, rear-wheel-drive models).
- For 2019, the 6.2L V-8 is now exclusively offered with four-wheel drive. Equipped with the Max Towing Package, it now delivers a maximum of 12,200 pounds towing, up 500 pounds from a similarly equipped 2018 model (double-cab, four-wheel-drive models).
The first engines to be produced will be the 5.3L V-8 equipped with an eight-speed automatic, and the 6.2L V-8 equipped with a 10-speed automatic. Both offer more than 5 percent improvement in city fuel economy, for an improvement of 1 mile per gallon based on EPA estimates.
Models equipped with the 5.3L V-8 and rear-wheel drive offer an EPA-estimated 17 miles per gallon city, 23 highway and 19 combined. Models equipped with four-wheel drive and the 6.2L V-8 offer an EPA-estimated 16 miles per gallon city, 20 highway and 17 combined.
Chevrolet says EPA ratings for the new 2.7-liter turbo and 2.0-liter Duramax diesel engines are still pending.
