With the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado preparing to launch later this year, SEMA has invited associated aftermarket manufacturers to two measuring sessions. The sessions will allow aftermarket companies to collect data to begin developing aftermarket parts for the 2019 Silverado.
And as the pickup truck sector continues to overperform, aftermarket parts remain in high demand.
The first session will take place on April 10 through 11 in California, while a second session will be held in Detroit, Michigan, on April 24. The sessions also sometimes include unannounced information, which means SEMA-affiliated manufacturers could be the first to know what’s coming from the 2019 Silverado’s powertrain portfolio. So far, we know a 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 are on deck, as is a new 3.0-liter Duramax diesel engine.
The 2019 Silverado is also 3.9 inches longer and 450 pounds lighter than the outgoing pickup, which will remain in production alongside the all-new pickup.
