Mainline production of the all-new 2019 Silverado and 2019 Sierra has commenced at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana.
Photos posted by Automotive Sales Consultant Mike Davenport on his Facebook page taken outside the Fort Wayne plant show a few of the all-new pickup trucks – namely the 2019 Silverado High Country and 2019 Sierra AT4, thereby confirming whispers that mainline production of the all-new T1 platform trucks have commenced at the facility.
Production is currently taking place on a limited basis, and the vehicles that have been or are currently being produced going into GM’s Captured Test Fleet, one of the final parts of GM’s vehicle development process that places early production models in to the hands of GM employees, who will drive the vehicles and report back with any issues. The process is intended to perfect the series production process.
The news follows reports of the first real-world sightings of the all-new Silverado a few days ago.
Interestingly, both models are equipped with the new 6.2L V-8 engine, whose power output we still don’t know, as GM has been less than forthcoming with the details when announcing both vehicles.
