What Does the 2019 Chevrolet Truck Lineup Look Like?
In the eyes of some people, Chevrolet boasts the best pickup truck lineup of 2019. While some models are perfect for daily commuting, others are designed to offer top-notch luxury on the road. Meanwhile, off-road-ready trims are available for the drivers who love to explore the backcountry. Regardless of which new Chevy pickup you choose, expect to be surrounded by a long list of modern features. Stylish appearance packages give you another reason to love Chevy’s new trucks. Most importantly, Chevrolet seeks to satisfy a wide range of different budgets.
Without further ado, let’s check out the new Colorado, Silverado 1500, all-new Silverado, and Silverado HD models.
For the drivers who find a full-size pickup to be just a bit too big, Chevy offers the midsize Colorado starting at $21,300. Class-leading towing capabilities and well-mannered handling help set it apart from the competition. A comfy ride makes the Colorado even more rewarding. Featuring a raised suspension and full undercarriage protection, the ultra-rugged ZR2 Bison model comes properly equipped for a serious off-road adventure.
When checking out the new Colorado, you’ll have three different engines to choose from. The base four-cylinder engine produces a competitive 200 horsepower while returning up to 26 mpg on the highway. Stepping up to the 308-horsepower V6 enables you to experience a much more exciting performance. A highway fuel economy rating of 25 mpg makes the V6-equipped Colorado strong and efficient. The available DuraMax diesel engine not only increases the Colorado’s towing capacity to 7,700 pounds, but it also saves you at the pump by returning up to 30 mpg.
There are a lot of nice features available on the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. This year, Chevrolet’s all-new Infotainment 3 system comes standard across the lineup. The interface’s sharper graphics and improved responsiveness promise to leave you impressed. Furthermore, even the base model can be equipped with a 4G Wi-Fi hot spot. Some of the other available upgrades include a Bose premium sound system, GM’s award-winning OnStar communications system, and a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen. Available safety technologies, such as forward collision alert and lane departure warning, will give you an extra sense of security.
Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Starting at $28,300, the full-size Chevrolet Silverado 1500 remains a great option for any truck lover. It’s tough, durable, and powerful enough to pull a big load. You also can’t forget about the Silverado 1500’s everyday comfort.
With a total output of 285 horsepower, even the Silverado 1500’s base V6 engine proves to be a strong performer. Meanwhile, moving up to the 5.3L V8 nets you 355 horsepower. Despite the V8’s extra muscle, it still manages to match the V6’s 24-mpg highway fuel economy rating. If you demand the maximum performance, check out the 6.2L V8 engine. It’s rated to develop a monstrous 420 horsepower. An optional Max Trailering package enables you to confidently tow up to 12,500 pounds.
You’ll especially enjoy riding in the Silverado 1500. Featuring a spacious backseat and four full-size doors, the crew cab body style is perfect for the drivers who need to accommodate their family and friends. While the base WT model is made for working hard, it still comes loaded with attractive features like onboard Wi-Fi connectivity and a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Plus, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come installed for every trim.
To further enhance your safety, opt for the Silverado 1500’s Enhanced Driver Alert package. While low-speed automatic emergency braking makes city driving less nerve-racking, a vibrating Safety Alert Seat warns you of a potential crash. Lane-keep assist is also included in the package.
All-New Chevrolet Silverado
For good reason, the all-new Chevrolet Silverado ($28,300 MSRP) has already become a hot commodity. Not only does the fully redesigned Silverado provide more passenger room, but it also offers new technologies like a head-up display. Sleeker exterior styling with front air curtains takes the all-new Silverado’s appeal to the next level. Plus, class-leading bed space adds to this truck’s appeal.
Like the previous Silverado 1500, it comes standard with a 285-horsepower V6. The biggest change is the arrival of a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is tuned to develop a satisfying 310 horsepower. A city fuel economy rating of 20 mpg makes it ideal for navigating through heavy traffic. While the top-of-the-line V8 engine still develops a muscular 420 horsepower, a new 10-speed automatic transmission helps better transfer the available power to the wheels.
Improved handling gives you another reason to choose the all-new Silverado. A lighter design and upgraded suspension tuning help it to feel remarkably poised. Outdoor lovers will be interested in the adventurous Custom Trail Boss trim, which comes standard with 4WD drive and a Z71 Off-Road package.
There are a lot of exciting features available in the all-new Silverado. Chevy’s new and improved Infotainment 3 interface is bound to excite smartphone users. Available Wi-Fi connectivity makes it easy for all your passengers to access the web. Featuring ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats, the range-topping Silverado High Country is designed to be one of the most luxurious trucks on the street. Furthermore, this is the first pickup in the segment to offer a remote-controlled tailgate.
All of Chevy’s latest safety innovations are available on the all-new Silverado, including pedestrian detection and GM’s HD Rear Camera Mirror. If you plan to tow on a regular basis, don’t miss out on the Silverado’s new Advanced Trailering System. It provides hitch guidance technology and allows you to perform several trailer safety checks via the infotainment screen.
In terms of hauling and towing capabilities, the Silverado HD, with its #37,600 MSRP, sits atop the lineup. From farm machinery to big boats, this heavy-duty workhorse is designed to handle a wide range of different tasks. When equipped the optional Z71 Off-Road package, it becomes an even more capable truck.
Drivers who want to really show their American pride should take a look at the new Z71 Tribute Edition. It decorates the Silverado HD with exclusive U.S.A. flag graphics.
The Silverado HD gives you two different engines to pick from. Even the base V8 engine punches out a formidable 360 horsepower. However, drivers seeking the ultimate towing machine should look no further than the diesel-powered Silverado HD. Its turbocharged DuraMax diesel engine develops 445 horsepower and a reassuring 910 pound-feet of torque. When called upon, the new Silverado HD will have no trouble pulling a 14,500-pound load.
While the Silverado HD is tougher than the average pickup truck, it still rewards you with a relaxing ride. Popular features, such as an award-winning OnStar communications system with built-in Wi-Fi and smartphone integration, come standard. Expect the upper trims to deliver an especially luxurious driving experience. Featuring forward collision alert and lane departure warning, the Silverado HD’s available Driver Assist safety package helps you to better avoid danger on an everyday basis.
