For now, Chevrolet is keeping the interior, powertrain, payload, and towing specs mum for the 2019 Silverado. However, what you see before you is a new entry to the nameplate lineup: the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trailboss (pictured). The 2019 Silverado Trailboss integrates the suspension system of the traditional Z71 package, but adds a two-inch lift kit on top of it, as well as more aggressive off-road tires. And get a load of the raised, bumper-integrated exhaust tips, as well as the retro-inspired embossed tailgate.
For those wondering what materials GM will utilize in the construction of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, here’s the skinny: a higher-grade steel alloy is used in the roll-formed floor of the truck bed. Meaning that it can likely still pass the infamous tool-box-drop test. However, Chevrolet does mention that the bed is “more functional,” and of “lighter weight.” We’re assuming that there’s aluminum in there, somewhere. Chevy also hints at “improved performance” and a reduction in total vehicle weight. So far, no mention on aluminum content, let alone carbon fiber.
The 2019 Silverado will have quite the broad lineup, consisting of eight new Silverado models – one of which is the aforementioned Trailboss.
We’re on site with Chevrolet, and we hope to share with you much more details to come shortly. We’re also anticipating more information as the 2018 North American International Auto Show creeps closer. For now, enjoy the surprise!
