2019 Silverado Price: Full-Size Pickup Starts At $29,79511
As General Motors approaches the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado launch date later this year, we now know the 2019 Silverado price point will start at $29,795, the brand announced on Friday.
The figure nets buyers a Work Truck model with two-wheel drive, a regular cab and a long bed. A crew cab/short bed model will ring in at $36,095. For those looking for a basic workhorse, the Work Truck model is the ticket. The pickup sticks with the 4.3-liter V6 engine, producing 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque, offers a max towing capacity of 8,000 pounds and a max payload of 2,500 pounds. The engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy estimates are not available for the engine yet.
Moving along, every other 2019 Silverado model comes in double-cab configuration and a standard bed, and starts at $33,695 for a Custom trim ($38,495 for a crew cab/short bed). Pricing for the trim hierarchy is as follows for double cab/standard bed first and crew cab/short bed second:
- Custom Trail Boss (4×4 only): $40,995, $43,395
- LT: $38,395, $40,795
- RST: $40,295, $42,695
- LT Trail Boss (4×4 only): $47,395, $49,795
- LTZ: $44,495, $46,895
- High Country: $54,495 (crew cab only).
Frugal-minded truck buyers will note the volume-selling LT model is actually $700 less expensive than the outgoing truck, despite a new 2.7-liter L3B turbocharged four-cylinder engine and other new equipment. However, the first engines GM will produce for the 2019 Silverado are the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 engines with Dynamic Fuel Management technology.

How is the LTZ cheaper then the LT trailboss?
But trail boss is an LT with off road equipment and a factory lift kit, LTZ is leather seats and some wheels. Mechanical versus cosmetic etc. Take your pick
$49k ain’t bad but I will have to see what that translates into for us canadians.
Probably the LTZ is the 2 wheel drive pricing
For the same reason that a 2019 Ram Rebel is $6-7k more expensive than a 2019 Ram Laramie and within $4k of a Laramie Longhorn.
My 2014 WT was $27k with power windows/locks option. The reg cab short box 2wd. Thought that was too high back then for base truck
No regular cab, short bed configuration?
29k for a v6 base no thanks I’ll keep my 93 4×4
Guess im sitting out this generation and sticking to my reg. cab/std. bed k2xx 5.3L LT. As i have no use for a long bed, WT trim, or a back seat.
Surprised they dropped the standard cab short bed pickup. I get that GM isn’t selling many trucks of that combination. But to drop them altogether when the components are available and there is no extra cost to build them is a strange response.
They should produce them when one is customer ordered. If afraid of a possibility of the customer defaulting on the order; require a non-refundable deposit.
I get limiting or focusing resources to more profitable expenditures, but in the case of eliminating even the option of ordering the standard cab short bed truck – it just seems lazy.
“But to drop them altogether when the components are available and there is no extra cost to build them is a strange response.”
Huh? it would require a unique frame for a truck with that short of a wheelbase, a completely different suspension tuning unless you want it to break your back when you hit a pothole or expansion joint, the driveshaft would need to be a different length, and it would need to be EPA tested.
