Having trouble figuring out what to do when it comes to holiday car shopping? Why not make it holiday truck shopping? There are more choices than ever for pickups, but few offer as much for their customers as the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The completely redesigned Silverado 1500 has more cargo volume than its predecessor with increased length and more capabilities than ever. The added luxuries for the higher trims and overall increased aerodynamics are a welcome change for customers. It’s thanks to all these changes that the Silverado is being rewarded with accolades by the people and sites like AutoGuide, which help to keep their readers informed.

“The Chevrolet Silverado brings a lot to the table in Truck Land. The new transmission, the truck’s refinement, and its long list of clever features are all very impressive,” says Jodi Lai, Editor-in-Chief of AutoGuide.com.

Popular and Powerful

To give an idea of why the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is better than the competition, the fans provided more votes for the Chevrolet product over the likes of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra. With all the votes cast, AutoGuide.com reached out and provided a $500 Amazon gift card, given to a random fan that had cast their vote. For those looking to be rewarded, take a hint from the winner of AutoGuide.com’s 2019 Reader’s Choice for Truck of the Year and step into the powerful, sophisticated 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Just how powerful is this Chevy pickup?

Powertrain Options and Towing Capacities

For the impressive 2.7-Liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 provides 7,200 pounds of maximum towing capacity. The upgraded 4.3-Liter V6 is even stronger with a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. The middle tier powertrain offers quite an increase up to 11,000 pounds in the 5.3-Liter V8 with Active Fuel Management (AFM). AFM is able to turn off cylinders when driving to help save gas as well as remain strong when needed. This strong V8 engine is also available with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) that can help save even more gasoline for customers with its ability to shut off all cylinders, rather than only some of them with the ARM technology.

Chevrolet’s Dynamic Fuel Management is special and a prize for owners hoping to retain gas like never before. The DFM V8 engine hits 11,600 pounds of maximum towing capacity and it’s only topped by the 6.2-Liter V8 engine with DFM, capable of hauling 12,200 pounds. Incredibly strong and capable of good gas mileage hitting 17 city and 23 highway mpg, this Silverado 1500 has earned votes for all the right reasons. The choice of the readers was clear and the perks are plentiful as to why it was their pick for Truck of the Year.

The All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Awaits You

Chevrolet has given a restored look to their superior Silverado 1500 pickup. This comes on the heels of General Motors showcasing redesigned Chevy and GMC pickups in 2018 to great success. The vastly improved 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT provides plenty of trim levels and a bevy of attractive options. How do six powertrains and eight unique trims sound? More than excellent! The question is which trim supplies the most for a driver’s needs? With various additions and available features for the new Silverado 1500, let’s get into what options might make the most sense among all the trims.

Step Into the Silverado

The Silverado begins with the Work Truck trim, powered by a standard 4.3-Liter V6 six-speed engine equipped with Active Fuel Management. Drivers that need a strong and durable ride for work, this is that solid option with its 7,400 towing capacity and solid handling. The larger 5.3-Liter V8 engine is available for this base trim. The Custom and Custom Trail Boss also come with the 4.3-Liter V6 engine and carry the same Active Fuel Management standard but can upgrade to the later 5.3-Liter V8 engine.

More Powertrain Options

The 2.7-Liter turbo 4-cylinder engine provides a fuel economy of 20 city mpg and 23 highway mpg. This powertrain offers more torque than the base engine and is a whole second faster from a 0-60 mph standpoint (6.8 seconds). This powerful engine is only available in the LT and RST trims. By comparison with other trucks, the Ford F-150 carries lower mpg than the Silverado, and the Silverado matches the Ram 1500 3.6-Liter V6 mild hybrid engine in terms of highway mpg. The 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque in the turbo is a strong engine offering 13% more efficiency with 14% more torque than the 4.3-Liter V6 engine 2018 Silverado. The cost to get the 2.7-Liter Turbo in the latest Silverado begins at $38,395 MSRP (plus destination fee).

The LT and RST trims can hold the 5.3-Liter V8 paired with 8-speed transmission with Dynamic Fuel Management or the 3.0-Liter Diesel Inline-6 paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The great feature with the eight and 10-speed automatic transmissions are their unique damper that lowers vibrations from the cylinder-deactivating gas engines and the non-deactivating diesel. Dynamic Fuel Management allows every lone cylinder to be turned off as needed while driving. The Active Fuel Management does not reach every cylinder or allow for every cylinder to be closed, but rather works in groups. The difference is the smoothness factor, but a chip inside the Silverado spreads out the requirements for various cylinders to be used or not.

“The new Silverado 2.7L Turbo delivers impressive performance and fuel efficiency. It’s fun to drive every day — quick from the start, and pulling hard under acceleration. With up to 23 mpg on the highway, the truck is efficient while still offering plenty of capability to tackle weekend projects and trips to the lake.” said Tim Asoklis, Silverado chief engineer.

Turbo-diesel Anyone?

The 3.0-Liter turbodiesel inline-6 engine might be the best choice depending on the needs of the customer. This powertrain includes the Dynamic Fuel Management and runs smooth. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and available in early 2019, this will be a hot topic powertrain when partnered with the Silverado. Other powertrain options include the 6.2-Liter V8 that boasts the 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque; the strongest among the 2019 Silverado line-up. Keep in mind, the choice of the powertrain is different than what makes up the vehicle inside. Let’s look over some of the options that come in the higher trims.

Silverado 1500 Facts

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST includes an upgrade over the LT model’s cloth seating and includes the power-release tailgate. The LT Trail Boss carries a 2-inch lift kit standard with the LT Trail Boss trim and offers several terrain modes to choose from (like if an owner wanted to go off-road or weather conditions making driving difficult). The starting price of the LT Trail Boss is $49,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). For those that want to have a larger infotainment screen, the LTZ carries an 8-inch screen, rather than the standard 7-inch screen.

The most luxurious High Country trim carries the 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed with Dynamic Fuel Management with options of both the 3.0-Liter Diesel Inline-6 10-speed and the 6.2-Liter V8 engine as well. The High Country includes standard heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A nice feature that owners will love is the wireless charging capabilities and included Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. Leather-appointed seating with a two-tone color scheme seals the deal for an amazing interior. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD High Country Crew Cab begins at $57,795 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Now the only question is which trim and powertrain to try? We know a place to find out which one is most appealing.

Chevrolet Has More Mid-Size Pickup Options On the Way

Ever wanted to own a mid-size Chevrolet pickup truck? For Chevy fans expecting more mid-size pickup options, the wait is over with the 2019 Colorado lineup. Chevrolet has heard the requests and will now offer two brand new trims and focus their attention on their latest off-road beast, the Colorado ZR2 off-road Bison. General Motors will emphasize their pickup options as being incredible (they are) with incredible prices (affordable and attractive) for the new Bison ZR2 and both of the new special editions of the Chevrolet Colorado, the Z71 Trail Runner and the street-focused RST. All of these options are apart of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado lineup that has made up a large portion of sales as Americans have a growing obsession with the mid-size pickup truck segment.

“The success of Colorado helped reignite the midsize truck segment, which increased 27 percent from 2015 to 2017. It changed what customers expected from a midsize truck, brought new customers to Chevrolet and has inspired competitors to follow Chevy’s lead,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet’s Director of Truck Marketing.

Pricing For the Latest Chevrolet Pickup Options

General Motors has listed the ZR2 Bison, with the V6 engine and extended cab, at just $47,050 MSRP (plus destination fee). Crew cab models start at $48,650 MSRP (plus destination fee).
The Colorado ZR2 Bison is set to hit dealer showrooms with a sticker price of $48,045 MSRP (destination fee) for the gasoline-powered Extended Cab truck. This represents a $5,750 increase from the standard ZR2 in the same body style, but offers much more in the way of exhilaration and drivability. To gain the four-door option, owners can expect a slight raise of $1,600 to that price for either the extended or crew cab version of the ZR2.

What About Those Two New Trims?

Available for consumers in a new Z71 Trail Runner package, this package adds the ZR2’s skid plates and rock sliders with a fresh set of 17-inch wheels and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires. Drivers will embrace the bold look of the blacked-out CHEVROLET grille first shown on the Bison. Not quite the Bison in terms of its off-road prowess, but definitely aggressive and capable of handling adventure for owners.

Both the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 Chevrolet Colorado will offer the available RST trim. This package will be grouped as a mid-grade trim that begins at $32,195 MSRP (plus destination fee). The RST comprises the color-keyed exterior gear and large 20-inch wheels. The $21,495 base model 2WD truck comes with a six-speed manual transmission and is a solid option.

Handle the Off-Road With A Pickup Unlike Any Other

Fans of the Bison know Chevrolet produced an off-road champion with their Colorado ZR2 Bison, an off-road powerhouse made in a detailed collaboration with aftermarket house American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). The 2019 Chevrolet ZR2 Bison is off-road ready with six skid plates, 31-inch Goodyear Duratracs, a snorkel, heavy-duty bumpers and even includes an optional diesel powertrain. And that’s just the start!

Similar to the standard ZR2, the Bison rests on a track that is 3.5 inches wider than the entry Colorado. The ZR2 Bison carries locking electronic differentials, 3.42 rear axle ratio, and a two-inch suspension lift with Multimatic DSSV dampers capable of handling bumpy, less traveled roads with ease. Few vehicles on the market are capable of taking owners on an adventure right out of the gate like the Bison can. Between all these new options, 2018 has been a banner year for Chevrolet pickup line-up and will continue in 2019.

The Previous Generation Silverado Is Sticking Around

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Photo credit: Chevrolet

For those who have not yet test-driven the previous-generation Chevrolet Silverado, they will have more time to decide on getting one. Chevrolet will remain making the prior generation pickup throughout the 2019 calendar year. The stock of previous generation Chevy pickups will continue to be produced alongside the brand new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado that is now available for purchase. So what are the reasons behind having both and what are the differences? Let’s start by breaking down the plans for the older-generation Chevrolet Silverado.

Plans For the Previous Generation Silverado

Automotive News reports that Chevrolet will produce the older truck, named internally as the K2, and then they will phase out the truck gradually over 2019. Chevrolet CFO Dhivya Suryadevara informed Automotive News that crew cab models will be the first to end its production, succeeded by the double cab models and then eventually the regular cab versions in the second half of 2019.

The new generation Silverado crew cab models, which started assembly in Fort Wayne, Indiana earlier in 2018, and the double cab models began production in October 2018. A Chevrolet production plant in Silao, Mexico, will be ready to produce pickups by January and will launch production of the regular cab models simultaneously with crew cabs.

General Motor’s Oshawa, Ontario plant in Canada creates the T1 double cab bodies and then exports them to Fort Wayne to finalize and complete the pickup’s assembly. This process is known by those in the company as the “Oshawa shuttle,” the method decreased how long the process takes, giving General Motors the ability to make a target number of trucks required to support a new vehicle launch and provide dealerships all over a chance to be stocked properly with the Silverado.

Why Make Them Both Together?

While the previous edition of the Silverado will be sold side-by-side by the latest and greatest Chevrolet Silverado, this doesn’t mean that the new generation Silverado isn’t that spectacular (it is) or that the previous generation pickup didn’t sell well (it has) as they both have their fans. The General Motors approach is similar to what Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is doing with their single cab version of the Ram 1500, selling both the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 with their retitled 2018 Ram 1500 as an ever-so-slightly refreshed 2019 Ram 1500 “Classic”.

While General Motors does not provide their sales numbers monthly, a quarterly report will have to do to showcase how great a decision this move is later on. How will the Silverado fair? Time will tell, but having choices is always a plus for consumers. However, the difference between both generations shows that the latest Silverado is definitely superior to the prior generation.

The Difference Between The Newest Silverado and Previous Silverado

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is way more convincing and capable than the previous Silverado. New components and a new frame go along with a redesigned interior. The new 2019 Chevy Silverado carries multiple powertrains that have improved their fuel economy from the previous model year. A 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed automatic and 6.2-Liter V8 with 10-speed automatic transmission both allow more than a 5 percent improvement in city fuel economy, hitting 17 mpg and an improved 23 highway mpg. Silverados with the four-wheel drive and a 6.2-Liter V8 engine gain a fuel economy rating of 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

Two more powertrain options are set to arrive before long, the 2.7-Liter Turbo and Duramax 3.0-Liter Turbo-Diesel engine, but the fuel efficiency has not been announced yet. The maximum towing capacity has improved by 500 pounds to 12,200 pounds when powered by the 6.2-liter V8 with av available Max Trailering Package, and there’s also an increase in payload capacity up by 14 percent. Not to mention, the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado starts at just $29,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). The 2019 Silverado production is set to expand and include the powerful Duramax 3.0-Liter inline-six turbo diesel LM2 engine by early 2019.

2019 Chevy Silverado – More options Than a Swiss Army Knife

Friday, July 13th, 2018

The latest generation Chevrolet Silverado has taken the pickup industry and turned it on its head. Not many trucks can hold a candle to the 2019 Chevy Silverado, simply due to the innovation and high performance that makes this all-new Silverado as good as it gets. With six powertrains and a total of eight trims, customers are provided with a bevy of choices. Customers will love the fact that each engine, with the exception of the 3.0-Liter Diesel Inline-6, stocks a fuel management system to provide better fuel efficiency. This includes the all-new 2.7-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which provides upgraded performance and gas mileage. We’ll get into all the nice, new details of this remarkable new generation Silverado pickup below.

More on the Silverado Options – Including 2019 Silverado Trim

The various trims go as follows: Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country. The latest 2019 Silverado 1500 will include a lighter, yet bigger and longer pickup size. The wheelbase is 3.9 inches longer than the 2018 Silverado and the overall length exactly 1.6 inches longer. So does bigger mean better? If a driver is looking for more legroom than yes! The rear-seat in the four-door crew cab has grown from 40.9 inches to 43.8 inches. Customers can also expect to haul more with every 2019 Silverado gaining a larger truck bed, nearly seven inches of extra floor width, and the available power-operated tailgate is a great new feature. The bed floor is also 1.5 times stronger than the 2018 Silverado. While those features are phenomenal, we’re most impressed by the addition of new powertrain options available in the 2019 Chevy Silverado.

Which Engines Are Returning?

Chevrolet includes the 4.3-Liter V6, 5.3-Liter V8 with Active Fuel Management (AFM), the 6.2-Liter V8 and lastly, the 3.0-Liter turbocharged diesel inline-six. Added are the new 5.3-Liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) and the aforementioned 2.7-Liter engine. The 2.7-Liter turbocharged engine will provide drivers with 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.  All engines are paired with the choice of three available transmissions, ranging from six-, eight- and 10-speed automatic transmissions.

Not every trim can include each powertrain or transmission option of course. The new 2.7-Liter turbocharged engine and 5.3-Liter V8 with DFM is available only with the 10-speed automatic. Dynamic Fuel Management debuts in this all-new Silverado and provides drivers with engine technology that cuts off fuel consumption to certain cylinders when a driver is coasting and not actively accelerating forward. The expected MPG for the powertrain options with DFM is 17 city and 23 highway mpg.

Final Thoughts on the All-New Silverado

There’s something for everyone in the new generation Silverado. After shaving off 450 pounds from the previous model by losing 88 pounds off the frame and 88 pounds from the body and the added lighter material throughout, the lighter Silverado handles as well as ever. Redefining this vehicle is the aerodynamic efficiency, improving 7 percent overall with a steeper windshield and roof spoiler. Overall, the improvements Chevrolet has placed into this all-new 2019 Silverado have made this pickup impressive as any new light-duty truck on the market. The competition has to look out for this one, especially since the starting price will be just $29,795 MSRP (Plus destination).

2019 Chevy Silverado Highlights

Miami Lakes 2019 Chevy Silverado

The wait is almost over – in only a few more months the new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be out and ready to drive. The new pickup truck will have new and exemplary features, including a bigger and stronger bed and also a powerful, yet, fuel efficient engine. To add to those amazing improvements to the luxurious interior and entertainment system is definitely something to get excited about.

Each 2019 Chevy Silverado will have bigger and better truck beds. These beds are made of steel to make sure that each bed can hold as much weight as possible and be as durable. In fact, this new bed can hold one and a half times the amount of strength of its predecessor, making it that much more awesome. The bed is also strategically designed as two pieces.

The reason for this is because of the conservation of space – Having the bed made of two pieces saves weight and makes for a 23 percent increase of space for the bed. With that being said, there is an added amount of almost seven inches of floor width space. For convenience, there is a button on every key fob of the vehicle to open and close the tailgate, and another great and easy option is to press a button to do the same for opening the tailgate of the bed from within the cabin of the vehicle.

What We Know about 2019 Chevy Silverado

Friday, December 29th, 2017

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado was introduced at an event

We don’t have to speculate much on any rumors concerning the upcoming 2019 Chevy Silverado, the newest pick-up from Chevy. To celebrate over 100 years of Chevy trucks, a helicopter brought the new 2019 Chevy Silverado to the Texas Motor Speedway during the Chevy Truck Centennial event. The truck is to officially debut next month at the North American International Auto Show.

 The 2019 Silverado will be available in eight trims and there will be various engine/transmission options to choose from, providing more options than before. Chevy has also acknowledged they’ll vamp up their technology, offer additional convenience features and improve on the previous year.

 Rumors have it that the 2019 Silverado will offer more engine and transmission options, like the new 10-speed automatic currently found in the 2018 Tahoe and Suburban with the 6.2-liter L86 V-8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Speculation is that there will also be a range of diesels available.

 Speculation as to the materials used that make up the truck’s bed is unknown, but those details on the Silverado’s specifics, including weight savings from the previous year will be available in January 2018. Some rumors are that the bed will be lined with some new carbon fiber composite. Time will tell, but we’ll know soon.

 For more information about when you can see the new 2019 Chevy Silverado for yourself, check with your South Florida source for the latest new trucks at Miami Lakes Automall.
