One of the options offered on Chevrolet’s all-new 2019 Silverado is the LTZ Premium Package (RPO Code PDK). Here’s a closer look at the package, its features, as well as availability information.
The 2019 Silverado LTZ Premium Package bundles four several packages, including the LTZ Convenience Package, LTZ Convenience Package II, Safety Package, Safety Package II – as well as a power sunroof and 20-inch polished wheels. Here’s what’s included in each of the four packages:
LTZ Convenience Package (PCZ)
- Bucket seats (A50)
- Center console (D07)
- Heated and ventilated front seats (KQV)
- Rear sliding power window (A48)
- Universal Home Remote (UG1)
- 2 USB ports with auxiliary input (MCZ)
- Power up/down tailgate (QT6)
- Crew Cab models include rear heated seats (KA6)
LTZ Convenience Package II (PCN)

- Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking (UHY)
- Front Pedestrian Braking (UKJ)

- Safety Alert Seat (HS1)
In short, the LTZ Premium Package essentially gives the 2019 Silverado most of the options available. However, it’s worth noting that the Technology Package is not included in the LTZ Premium Package, though the Tech Package does require the Convenience Package II and Safety Package II for LTZ models.

So while most of the features included in the 2019 Silverado LTZ Premium package cannot be added to the Silverado individually, Chevy does provide the option to pick the various packages individually. It may not be ideal for some, but it is certainly better than an “all or none” approach.
The LTZ Premium package on the 2019 Silverado is assigned RPO code PDK and currently requires the Crew Cab model.
It is not available with LTZ Plus Package (PDF) or LTZ Texas Edition (PDL).
The 2019 Silverado LTZ has a starting price of $50,195 in the Crew Cab / Short Bed configuration and $50,495 for the Crew Cab / Standard Bed setup. The LTZ Premium Package has a discounted price $5,350.
That means that the package is a thousand less than the $6,350 one would typically pay by purchasing each of the features and packages that are included in the bundle individually.
About Chevrolet Silverado
The Chevrolet Silverado is a lineup of full-size pickup trucks sold primarily in North America, but also in the Middle East and in certain markets in South America. Slotting above the mid-size Chevrolet Colorado (known as the S10 in some markets), the Silverado is Chevrolet's largest pickup truck and currently consists of the 1500 light duty model, two Heavy Duty models - the 2500HD and 3500HD, as well as Conventional Class 4, Class 5 and Class 6 Medium Duty models - the Silverado 4500HD and Silverado 5500HD and Silverado 6500HD.
The 2018 Chevy Silverado represents the fifth model year of the third-generation Silverado. It is based on the GM K2 platform shared with other full-size pickup trucks and SUVs from GM. Though the line sold relatively well, it became less competitive in the marketplace with time when compared to its primary Ford F-Series rival, due to lacking cutting-edge features such as turbocharged engines, a rugged off-road variant such as the Ford F-150 Raptor, a diesel engine option in the light duty (1500) model, and also various modern features and equipment.
Luckily, an all-new Silverado arrived for the 2019 model year that addresses many of the issues of its predecessor model. Customers began taking delivery of the all-new truck in the second half of August 2018.
Chevrolet says that the all-new 2019 Silverado is the result of over 7,000 customer interviews - the most intensive research in its history. The new model uses higher grade alloy steel in the bed floor as well as various mixed materials that result in a reduction in weight and improved performance, with weight falling about 450 pounds. The truck also offers an expanded amount of models for a total of eight, including the new 2019 Silverado Trailboss.
Riding on GM's new T1 platform shared with other future GM full-size trucks and SUVs, the 2019 Silverado offers more technology, convenience features, and engine/transmission combinations. While details of five powertrain combos have already been revealed, GM has not yet shared details of the new inline-six 3.0L Duramax Diesel engine, only stating that it will be "best-performing" and that it will be mated to GM's new 10-speed transmission.
Having overhauled the Silverado 1500, Chevy will next overhaul the Silverado Heavy Duty. The brand released a teaser image of the upcoming all-new 2020 Silverado HD in April 2018. The truck will be revealed and launched in the 2019 calendar year as a 2020 model year vehicle. The model family will be comprised of the Silverado 2500HD and Silverado 3500HD models, ride on a more capable version of the new T1 platform, share many technologies and design elements with the 2019 Silverado 1500, while being more robust and capable.
The 2019 Silverado Medium Duty series, comprised of the Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD, completes the overhauled Silverado family.
The Chevrolet Silverado is built at the following GM plants:
- GM Flint Assembly in Flint, Michigan, USA
- GM Fort Wayne Assembly in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA
- GM Oshawa Assembly in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
- GM Silao in Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico
- Navistar Springfield Assembly in Springfield, Ohio, USA (Silverado Medium Duty only)
