Previously, we brought you spyshots of what is thought to be the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 testing. The covering and cladding was created to provide the observer the impression that the truck was a Ford F-150. The beltline cut-down on the cover wrap is a signature feature of the F-Series. However, close distance to General Motors facilities and other automobiles leads us to think we’re looking at the next-generation Silverado.
On here we observe the truck winter season testing. Amongst the hints more noticeable this time around are dual-exit exhaust pointers, more frontal LED lighting, and sturdy, prominent grab handles on the A-pillar. Six-lug wheels show it is the 1500 1/2-ton model, which will be the very first to launch.
Beyond external looks, little is known about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. There’s a strong possibility the new collectively developed 10-speed automated with Ford will see service in the truck. Signs are than a development of the present fifth-generation small-block V-8 will continue service. The displacement of 5.3 L will likely maintain the traditional OHV “cam-in-block” setup.
General Motors is thought to be working on a dual-overhead-cam 6.2 Liter V-8 for use in the future Corvette and potential high-performance Camaro variations. Top-trim trucks and SUVs such as the Denali, High Country, and Escalade may likewise get a version of this engine eventually. Although, the big question everyone needs to know if there will be a 1/2-ton diesel? With Both Ford and Ram fielding 3.0 Liter V-6 diesels in their light-duty fullsizers, will GM do the same? Let’s wait and watch.
