While an all-new version of Chevy’s Heavy Duty Silverado trucks are still forthcoming, new for the 2019 model year is a “Tribute Edition” model aimed at some of Silverado’s more patriotic U.S. customers. The model is made distinct from more ordinary versions of the 2019 Silverado HD by a number of features, but there’s one that really sticks out: American flag-inspired decals on either side of the truck, stretching from the front fenders to the box sides.
It’s not all about the flag, though; the 2019 Silverado HD Tribute Edition also features black bowtie emblems on the front and rear – a nice little detail that Chevy seems to have taken a shine to on numerous special-edition models – along with a chrome-finish lower skid plate, spray-on bedliner (RPO code CGN) and Front and Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD5).
The Tribute Edition package requires the Silverado HD Z71 Off-road Package, so that trucks that are so-equipped also get Z71 badging on the front doors. The Z71 pickup box decal delete (RPO code 9R1) is required, and chrome bodyside moldings (RPO code B85) are removed.
The Tribute Edition package (RPO code STY) is available on the 2019 Chevy Silverado HD in LTZ trim only, either as a 2500HD with 4WD, a standard box, and crew cab (CK25743 model) or a 3500HD with the same drivetrain, box, and cab (CK35743). As we’ve said, it requires the Z71 Off-road Package, along with six-inch chrome tubular rectangular Assist Steps (Limited Production Option VXH) or No Assist Steps/Alternate Steps (RPO code R8M).
Conflicting packages that can’t be had with the new Tribute Edition package include:
- Midnight Edition (RPO code WJP)
- Custom Sport Edition (RPO code PDX)
- Black bowtie emblems (LPO code SFZ)
- Havana Metallic exterior paint (RPO code G2X)
- Graphite Metallic exterior paint (RPO code GPA)
- Cajun Red Tintcoat exterior paint (RPO code GPJ)
The 2019 Silverado HD Tribute Edition package wears a price tag of $2,025, not including the $3,500 price of the required Z71 Off-road Package. If the available six-inch chrome Assist Steps are desired, that’s another $775. All told, you’re looking at a $57,495 minimum MSRP for a 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Tribute Edition with the available Assist Steps, including destination.
