Chevrolet did the truck community a solid by giving us our first look at the 2019 Silverado at its Centennial Truck Celebration at Texas Motor Speedway last weekend. However, the truck shown was the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trailboss and not more pedestrian types.
Even though we’ve only seen one model of the 1500 level truck, of which there will supposedly be eight – we like what we see in the pickup’s new
embossed debossed tailgate. Rather than a big gold (or black) bowtie badge, Chevrolet dipped into the past and implemented a stamped and debossed “Chevrolet” lettering across the rear. We like that. It’s a thoughtful nod to the past, but it still looks modern and fresh.
We bring up the other models because we’re not sure if every Silverado variant will feature the look, and it raises a few points. Foremost, will buyers like the idea of no Chevy badge on the rear? Secondly, what other options could Chevy offer with this look? We’d bet it’s only a matter of time before someone outlines the “Chevrolet” lettering in white or black to amplify the throwback touch. Perhaps Chevrolet will offer a factory option as well.
