With the introduction of the all-new 2019 Silverado, Chevrolet finally began to offer full LED lighting on its full-size pickup truck. Not all 2019 Silverado lights, however, are LED, with certain models getting less capable halogen units. Since it’s somewhat challenging to determine which models have LEDs and which do not, we at GM Authority have compiled a guide to make it easier to understand the 2019 Silverado lighting landscape.
2019 Silverado LED Lamp Design
2019 Silverado models equipped with LED lights have a much more modern, high-tech appearance, especially when compared to counterparts equipped with halogen headlamps. Models equipped with LED headlamps LED reflectors for the primary lights, along with LED turn signals and signature C-shaped DRLs. Out back, the taillights feature a new interpretation of Chevy’s signature LED design.
2019 Silverado Light Availability
Full LED lighting, which consists of LED headlamps, LED signature Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs), LED fog lamps, and LED signature taillamps, starts out on the 2019 Silverado RST and above, including the LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country.
Other (lesser) models do not get the full LED lighting treatment, instead seeing a varying mix of halogen lights up front and either incandescent lights or LEDs in the back.
