The New 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Features
The new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is exactly that, new from headlights to hitch. It shares almost zero parts with the outgoing truck. You’ll find more technology, less weight, and a new turbodiesel.
Even the engines have been revised for increased efficiency. Chevy has finally revealed its new Dynamic Fuel Management system that can actively shut off any number of cylinders – not just four. That means you can run the V-8 on six cylinders, four, or even two for incredible fuel savings. Or opt for Chevy’s 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel paired exclusively with the new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Storage is everywhere in the 2019 Silverado. The double glove box remains, but now there are pockets on the side of the center console, the under-armrest console is larger, and there are even 2 storage boxes hidden under the cushions in the rear seat offering 10-liter bins designed to hold smaller items like tie-down straps or jumper cables. Another awesome storage spot is found under the folding seat bottoms in the second row. It holds 24 liters of stuff and is wide enough for a gallon of milk and long enough for fishing rods. Also, the rear floor is finally flat making the storage of cargo easier than ever.
And speaking of cargo, Chevy has increased the size of the cargo bed. The wheel wells have been pushed out by almost seven inches making it even easier to fit 4x8 sheets of plywood or whatever else you need to haul. They’ve also added 12 fixed tie-down loops and increased the capacity of each to hold 500 pounds. Additionally, there are nine movable tie-downs for flexible cargo management.
To compete with the Ram’s clever RamBox system, Chevy now has dealer-installed storage boxes that install over the wheel wells and against the inner bed wall. They offer almost seven cubic feet of lockable storage. Other new features include task lighting in the bed and a 120-volt household power outlet near the tailgate.
Chevy’s new RST and Trailboss trim levels should prove popular among retail customers wanting a more stylish – and with the Trailboss, more capable – truck.
The Trailboss trim includes a 2.0-inch suspension lift, red tow hooks, and Goodyear Duratrac tires on 18-inch, double five-spoke black wheels in addition to the Z71 Off Road package, which adds the G80 locking rear differential, skid plates, and Rancho shock absorbers.
The RST package takes the LT and transforms it into a more menacing street truck. It includes body-color trim; full LED headlights, taillights, and fog lights; and optional wheels up to 22-inches in size.Let us know when you’re ready to schedule your test drive!
