The current generation of Chevrolet Silverado was introduced in 2014, and while in continues to sell well, it hasn’t approach F-150 levels success. But, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado isn’t far off. Though, judging by new spy shots, it may be more evolution than revolution.
With less camouflage present, it’s becoming easier to make out details surrounding the next generation of light-duty pickups from the brand. Our eyes may deceive us, but it looks as if the love it or hate it, squared off wheel arches are still present, and the headlight design poking through looks akin to a mildly updated version of what’s on sale today.
Inside, a nearly identical center stack is present—development teams haven’t camouflaged it either, which means it may be carryover—though the gauge cluster is covered, suggesting Chevrolet may have an all-digital unit cooking.
All of this may seem evolutionary on the surface, but Chevrolet is reportedly working to incorporate more aluminum construction to shed weight over the current truck. As for powertrains, any guess is as good as ours. We’d suspect the new 10-speed automatic will be present, though. Chevrolet may take a stab at a light-duty diesel and a hybrid could be in the cards as well.
Following the Silverado, a new GMC Sierra will debut, which has also been spied with updated looks. Both trucks are expected to show face sometime next year.
