Chevrolet Silverado: Meet Chevy's redesigned full-size pickup

Expect fuel economy and functionality to be major selling points for the all-new 2019 Silverado full-size pickup arrives in dealerships late this year. The two major changes to next year's models are the 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine and the prolific use of aluminium for hinged components that brings down the weight by nearly 450 pounds. New equipment will include the first power tailgate on a pickup and a 3.0L inline-six Duramax diesel to save fuel and reduce emissions while maintaining towing capacity. Optioning the 2019 Silverado with the wheel-well storage bins translates to just around 7 cubic feet of lockable cargo space for the short-box bed.

There are six powertrain choices in the 2019 Silverado although Chevrolet discussed only three on Saturday.

Chevrolet introduced the latest model of best-selling Silverado pickup truck Saturday evening, January 13 to kick off the North American International Auto Show from Detroit's Eastern Market. Eric Seals, Detroit Free PressBuy Photo The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado that was revealed at Eastern Market in Detroit on Saturday Jan. 13, 2018. There are hidden compartments behind the rear seats and storage underneath the rear seats. The tailgate can be lowered with the key fob or a button inside the truck.

The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 makes its official debut January 13, 2018 in Detroit. The combination of lower weight and a refinement in aerodynamics adds up to a better performing truck on the road, according to Mark Reuss EVP of global product development at Chevrolet, but should also improve on economy, too. Crew-cab models now have 3 inches more rear-seat legroom, which means that front passengers have 44.5 inches of front legroom, while rear seat passengers get 43.8 inches of legroom. The trucks will range from the most basic "Work Truck" trim all the way up to the feature-rich "High Country" model.

Thomas, in just his second year in the league out of Ohio State, finished sixth in the league in receiving with 1245 yards. Case Keenum has been a very good quarterback, starting in place of both Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.

Other visual changes to the front include a new grille with "Chevrolet" cut into a broad center bar some models, while others get Chevy's traditional bow tie emblem.

The V8 engines are equipped with Dynamic Fuel Management, a new technology that shuts off anywhere between one and seven cylinders - depending on the vehicle's load and speed - to increase fuel efficiency.

GM has used the steel bed in marketing, claiming that it's more durable than rival Ford's bed made of aluminum. The fenders, roof and bed are steel. 80% of the frame consists of high-strength steel that varies in thickness from 2 to 5 mm.

The frame, cab, and bed remain steel, with various individual structural pieces and running-gear components of other materials, including second-stage springs made of composite material-just as they are on the Corvette sports auto. Cargo volume increased by 20 percent compared with the outgoing model and there are 21 tie-downs. "Others feel a truck isn't a truck without a chrome bumper, but feel extra chrome can be too 'flashy.' Others want as much chrome as they can get".

The all-new full-size pickup is taking on the aluminum-bodied F-150 with an assortment of metals to keep its weight down and its capabilities where Chevrolet thinks they need to be.
