Much has changed with Chevrolet’s new full-size pickup truck, including the 2019 Silverado’s dimensions. The fourth-generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado actually measures in longer and larger than the pickup it replaces.
So, for today’s Community Question we ask: do you like that the half-ton truck is bigger?
To be precise, the 2019 Silverado’s dimensions grow in length. The truck’s wheelbase is now 3.9 inches longer, while the overall length grows 1.6 inches. Obviously, the extra length permits greater cargo room and more interior space for occupants.
But, the larger size doesn’t come with a weight penalty. The 2019 Silverado is actually 450 pounds lighter than the outgoing truck when comparing crew-cab V8-powered models. Other trucks still shave some weight as well. GM’s mixed-material strategy incorporates steel and aluminum where it deemed most suitable. The brand insists it has no desire to move to an all-aluminum truck like the rival F-150.
The extra length also puts a tad more space between it and the Chevrolet Colorado, the brand’s mid-size pickup.
