We already knew that full-scale 2019 Silverado production will commence in the third quarter of 2018. Specifically, that time frame applies exclusively to Crew Cab models equipped with V-8 EcoTec3 engines – the 5.3L L83 V8, 5.3L L84 V8 and 6.2L L87 V8. Notably, the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana already started producing the trucks on a limited scale basis. And now, we have the timeline for series production of the Regular and Double Cab models and other 2019 Silverado engine choices.
According to a recent announcement directly from Chevrolet, 2019 Silverado production will expand to include Regular and Double Cab models, along with the 4.3L V-6 LV3 and all-new 2.7L Turbo L3B engines, in the fourth quarter of 2018.
From there, 2019 Silverado production will expand to include the Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo diesel LM2 engine “in early 2019.” Interestingly, GM and Chevrolet have yet to release any details or specifications for the all-new “baby Duramax” motor, including power, torque or fuel economy ratings slated for the Silverado 1500.
