The year 2018 will be dedicated to Chevrolet trucks’ centennial, but things will come to a crescendo when the brand reveals the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado sometime next year. While many details are still unknown, the 2019 Silverado was spied with less camouflage and we can see it’s sporting very different headlights.
The LED accents, particularly, shine through the skimpier camouflage. They lighting portrays an angular and very different headlight design from the current stacked units on the 2018 Silverado. It also appears the front grille doesn’t split the headlights, either—a Silverado design trend for many years.
At the rear, it’s harder to see what’s going on, but once again, the LED lighting shines through the camo. The lights look potentially thinner, though still vertical. However, we think the camo is doing a good job at distorting their overall size. One thing that is clear from the photos, however: the squared-off wheel arches are gone.
On the powertrain side of things, the next-generation Silverado may retain the current V8 engines, after an anonymous dealer source said the 2019 Sierra Denali was shown with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, potentially identical to the current truck’s. GM’s co-developed 10-speed automatic will likely make an appearance, and we know the 2019 Silverado 1500 will eventually feature a diesel engine, too.
With the prototypes ditching more camo, the final package is clearly coming into focus. Though, it’s unclear where and when Chevrolet will debut the 2019 Silverado.
