With a revised look, a set of six engine options, 3 body styles, and 3 different bed lengths, the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 plans to be a truck capable of filling every need. What it won’t be, however, is a class leader in either towing or hauling. Both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 can carry more in their beds and tow more on trailers. But with passionate fans and a huge level of brand loyalty, that’s likely to hardly hurt Chevy’s sales figures.
A turbocharged 4-cylinder engine replaces the base V6 in LT Silverados. The other trims (Work Truck, Custom, RST, LTZ, and High Country) will employ either the naturally aspirated V6, one of two V8 engines, or a 3.0-liter diesel 6-cylinder. 4-wheel drive is optional across all trims except for the new Trail Boss variants of the Custom and LT, where it is standard equipment—no rear-wheel-drive Trail Bosses are available.
Towing caps at 12,200 pounds, and the bed can haul up to 2,250 pounds of payload. Fuel economy in this truck isn’t spectacular, as Chris failed to break 14 mpg (even though his truck was estimated to return 17 in combined driving).
There is plenty of space inside the new Silverado 1500. Up front, drivers also enjoy the latest generation of Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, although Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard for those who prefer it.
The Silverado’s safety systems are impressive, too. A Rear Seat Reminder will make sure drivers don’t leave pets or children in the back seat. OnStar Safety & Security is also standard.
