After months of waiting, we finally have the order guide for the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500, answering many a question about the all-new light-duty pickup truck, including about two 2019 Silverado engines – the 5.3L L84 V8 and 6.2L L87 V8 – along with their respective power and torque ratings, plus the transmissions they will be mated to. Besides that, the guide also tells us which equipment and features will be standard and which will be available across the trims… for the most part.
We say “for the most part” because this current guide is only good for two models – the 2WD Short Bed Crew Cab (CC10543) and 4WD Short Bed Crew Cab (CK10543). As such, other cab and bed configurations are not part of the guide and neither are the three lower-end trim levels – the Work Truck, Custom, or Custom TrailBoss trims. So, this guide – which was published on April 20th, 2018 as the first iteration of the all-new Silverado order guide docs, is incomplete and will be updated at a later time – at which point we will inform you about it here on GM Authority.
Nevertheless, the guide is a good representation of what is likely the overwhelming majority of equipment/features and stair-step structure for the new truck – so it’s quite useful.
