  2019 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup Spied Showing Some Curves It's reportedly getting a new diesel and an aluminum chassis.We are still not allowed to see much of its design, but at least this time we can catch a glimpse of the more prominent radiator grille of the new model compared to today’s one. It features a vertical divider in the middle, which is home to a massive Chevrolet emblem. Further down, the bumper accommodates new fog lamps and what appears to be an additional air intake at the bottom.

Steel and More Steel

The new body still includes a steel bed, and the fully separate chassis uses higher-grade steel that reduces weight by 40 kg (88 lbs.) while increasing torsional rigidity by 10%. Unlike some rumours, only the door panels, hood and rear panel are made of aluminum. Despite all that steel, the result is impressive.The new Silverado is 41 mm longer, but weighs 204 kg (450 lbs.) less than the old one (when comparing the Crew Cab versions with V8 engines).

Finally, a Diesel Engine

Six combinations of gas-powered V6 and V8 engines and an in-line six-cylinder diesel engine should make this vehicle’s customers very happy. For those who prefer the inimitable sound and power of a good old V8, Chevrolet is offering a new management system that can deactivate up to seven cylinders.For more details on this system, known as Dynamic Fuel Management, refer to the article about technical innovations from the 2018 Detroit Motor Show.

GM teases new Chevrolet Silverado at owner event

  GM teases new Chevrolet Silverado at owner event New from ground up pickup will be unveiled at Detroit auto show“For the Chevy Truck Centennial, we wanted to recognize the customers who have made Chevrolet part of their lives, and have them help kick off the next 100 years of Chevy Trucks. Our owners’ passion is truly humbling,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America, and global head of Chevrolet. “Many of our owners depend on their trucks for work and play, personalize their trucks in astonishing ways, and pass their loyalty for Chevy Trucks down from generation to generation.

The basic gearbox is a six-speed automatic, while the 10-speed is reserved for the 6.2-litre V8 and the new 3.0-litre turbo-diesel six. The official numbers aren’t available yet, but Chevrolet is predicting substantial fuel savings.

Aerodynamic

According to Chevrolet, the new pickup boasts 7% less aerodynamic drag thanks in part to the spoiler at the back of the cabin and air curtains on either side of the grille. These openings route airflow around the front wheel wells and along the vehicle sides.

With more rounded and fluid lines, the new Silverado sets itself apart from the boxier old generation. But if you want that tough warrior look, go for the Trailboss versions, which are two inches higher off the ground and feature 275/65R18 all-terrain tires and a black grille.

The Chevrolet name is stamped onto the liftgate, which can be opened remotely on some versions. You’ll also spot wider and deeper cutouts on the edges of the bumper. The integrated dual exhausts add a touch of hot rod to its overall look.

Functional and Connected Cabin

The new passenger compartment of the Crew Cab versions offer 75 mm more legroom in the back. The optional bench seatback incorporates clever storage compartments, including one under the removable seat cushion.

The more modern dashboard has all the connectivity features you could ever want, such as 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging and OnStar.

Ready for 2019

If the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is as good on the road as it is on paper, it is going to trigger some serious head-scratching for its competitors. Eight versions will be available by the end of 2018, including the Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trailboss, LT, RST, LT Trailboss, LTZ and High Country.

The new heavy-duty pickup will be built in Flint, Michigan, starting in the third quarter of 2019. Unfortunately, that's all we know for the moment.It's safe to assume the new Silverado HD will use a few different powertrains, with gasoline and diesel V8 engines likely in the mix. Single- and dual-rear wheel options will likely be available, and we fully expect the heavy-duty pickup to include all of the new features found on the half-ton 2019 Silverado, including that trick power tailgate.Chevy says the 2020 HD will mark the reveal of "three all-new Silveraos in 18 months.
