DETROIT (Friday, May 18, 2018) — With 8 trims interconnected with 6 engine/transmission combinations, even some-more business will find a 2019 Silverado 1500 ideally tailored to their needs for performance, efficiency, record and value.

“A vital concentration of a next-generation Silverado is expanding a operation of choices,” conspicuous Tim Asoklis, arch operative for a Silverado 1500. “With all-new engines and a broader indication range, there’s a Silverado for everyone, either you’re selling your initial pickup or your tenth.”

The all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 thrust lineup includes:  

  • Over half of a models will be versed with a many modernized V-8s in a brand’s history: updated versions of Chevrolet’s proven 5.3L and 6.2L engines versed with industry-first Dynamic Fuel Management featuring 17 opposite modes of cylinder deactivation.
  • An all-new, modernized 2.7L Turbo engine that replaces a 4.3L V-6 as a customary engine on a high-volume Silverado LT and new Silverado RST, approaching to offer 22 percent some-more torque, incomparable fuel potency and a stronger power-to-weight ratio than a stream model.
  • Proven 4.3L V-6 and 5.3L V-8 engines broach full-size lorry capability and opening for a many affordable trucks in a Silverado lineup.
  • An all-new, Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo diesel will be accessible in early 2019.

A Silverado — and an engine — for any need

Each engine/transmission multiple is matched with extraneous pattern and interior facilities to emanate graphic personalities for any Silverado trim, formed on 3 extended patron profiles: High Value, High Volume and High Feature.

High Value — For business seeking full-size lorry capability and a top turn of affordability, the Work Truck (WT), Custom and Custom Trail Boss trims offer dual proven engine and delivery combinations:

  • Standard: 4.3L V-6 with Active Fuel Management and a six-speed involuntary delivery (SAE-certified during 285 hp/305 lb-ft).
  • Available: 5.3L V-8 with Active Fuel Management and a six-speed involuntary delivery (SAE-certified during 355 hp/383 lb-ft).

High Volume — For business selling in a heart of a lorry market, the LT, RST and LT Trail Boss trims change technology, potency and performance:

  • Standard for LT and RST: All-new 2.7L Turbo with Active Fuel Management and stop/start technology; interconnected with an eight-speed involuntary delivery (SAE-certified during 310 hp/348 lb-ft).
  • Standard on LT Trail Boss and accessible on LT and RST: An updated 5.3L V-8 with Dynamic Fuel Management and stop/start technology, with an eight-speed involuntary delivery (SAE approved during 355 hp/383 lb-ft).

  • Available: The all-new Duramax 3.0L inline-six Turbo-Diesel with stop/start technology, interconnected with a 10-speed involuntary transmission, will be accessible in early 2019.

Improved Driving Experience

The opening of any engine/transmission multiple advantages from a lorry that is lighter and some-more aerodynamic than a prior model.

With rebate weight and rebate breeze resistance, we softened a pushing dynamics though sacrificing fuel efficiency,” conspicuous Asoklis. “The next-gen Silverado is a bigger truck, though a framework feels some-more manageable and acceleration is some-more pronounced. we would disagree it’s a best pushing lorry we have ever built.”

The 2019 Silverado is incomparable than before, including a wheelbase that is adult to 100 millimetres (3.9 inches) longer nonetheless altogether length is usually 41 millimetres (1.6 inches) longer, enabling both some-more load volume and some-more interior room for all cab lengths. Remarkably, it’s also lighter, weighing adult to 204 kilograms (450 lbs) rebate than a stream Silverado, when comparing organisation cab V-8 models, due to endless use of churned materials and modernized manufacturing.

To urge a aerodynamic potency of a next-gen Silverado, a front grille facilities organic atmosphere curtains, identical to those introduced on a sixth-generation Camaro, that revoke breeze drag by routing atmosphere around a front circle wells. The absolute side form also enhances aerodynamics, with an integrated spoiler during a back corner of a cab that leads atmosphere onto a contoured tailgate, shortening breeze drag from a bed. Most models also underline active aero shutters integrated in a front grille that tighten to revoke breeze drag and open to yield softened engine cooling when needed. Changes like these outcome in a 7 percent boost in sum aerodynamic efficiency.

The Silverado Legacy

From a code of trucks famous for continuance and dependability, Chevy set a lofty idea of improving on Silverado’s Legacy. To do so, a next-gen lorry will be subjected to some-more than 475,000 validation tests and amass a towering eleven million kilometres (seven million miles) of real-world contrast before a initial 2019 Silverado 1500 is delivered to customers.

That includes a battery of tests for a Silverado engines and transmissions that will copy a operation of patron needs:

  • Each form of engine was initial subjected to a “torture test” in a dynamometer exam dungeon – using for months nonstop to copy a lifetime of limit prohibited and cold cycles.
  • Each Silverado various is approved to a SAE J2807 customary for towing and cargo capacity. Certification requires a full battery of exhausting tests – such as a Davis Dam test, in that a lorry contingency lift a limit sum total car weight adult a 7 percent grade, in 43 degrees Celsius (110 F) heat, with no rebate in performance, including air-conditioning.
  • Chevrolet engineers infer any Silverado engine and delivery pattern for lubrication capability on lean stands, creatively grown for Corvette, that lean during an angle of adult to 53 degrees and can copy angles during a rate of adult to 40 degrees a second, equaling adult to 1.4g.

Production plans

Silverado prolongation commences with crew-cab V-8 models starting in a third quarter. In a fourth quarter, prolongation will enhance to embody regular- and double-cab models, as good as V-6 and 2.7L Turbo engines. The new Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo diesel will be accessible in early 2019.

Transport Canada fuel economy estimates and towing/payload capacities are not nonetheless accessible and will be announced closer to launch.
