General Motors has delayed the roll out of the regular cab version of the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, focusing its initial production efforts on the much more popular double cab and crew cab models. The regular cab trucks are beginning to trickle out, however, and GM Canada has now announced pricing.
In Canada, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado regular cab will start at $27,815 in WT (Work Truck) trim, not including destination and taxes.
This significantly undercuts the price of the previous-generation Silverado WT regular cab (below), which started at $31,145, according to Chevrolet Canada’s website. The available long box option added $300 to the price for an MSRP of $31,445.
For 2019, the regular cab, two-door Silverado will only be offered in the lower trim levels: WT, Custom and LT. This is mostly the same as in 2018, however buyers also had the option of the LT Z71 trim with the regular cab.
The regular cab Silverado represents just 4 percent of overall Silverado sales in Canada. The take rate on the crew cab is the highest, at 63 percent, with another 33 percent selecting the double cab. The two-door configuration is a bit more popular in the United States, where roughly 12 percent of Silverado buyers opt for it.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Double Cab starts at $35,00 in Canada, while the Crew Cab is priced from $37,500. The most expensive version of the truck, the Crew Cab with the longer standard bed, starts $37,800. Four-wheel drive adds $3,800 onto the price tag of the pickup.
Chevy looked at ways to reduce the price of the Silverado in moving to the new truck, pointing out its reduced price when it first debuted last year.
“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability and value,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevy vice president, said at the tim. “The next-gen Silverado continues that tradition, offering more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities and a lower starting at MSRP on our highest volume model.”
