More shots of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are around us, indicating that a official revealing of the trucks is coming soon, perhaps as quickly as the State Fair of Texas in September. This time, we take a look at the interior, something we have not seen before. Not shockingly, it doesn’t appear transformations remain in store within automaker’s essential moneymakers. The steering wheel gets a reinnovation with a four-spoke style and what seem to scroll-wheels on both of the upper spokes, helping with quickly going through menu options for display screen and entertainment preferences. Although hard to see exactly, we’re anticipating GM’s standard paddle rockers behind the spokes for audio presets and volume to stay.
In regards to the center stack, the recent generation of MyLink appears, with the eight basic predetermined shortcuts. A series of knobs and buttons below offers redundant function for fundamental audio and HVAC controls. Lower down on the center stack, 110V AC power, numerous USB ports, and a standard 12V DC outlet exist. An overhead console seems to house the OnStar call button, front reading and entry lights, and exactly what appears like an incorporated HomeLink transmitter with three buttons. Likewise sure to please traditionalists is the holding of the column shifter, a design that automaker has stubbornly maintained even as numerous competitors have gone to console and dial shifters. A driver side A-pillar grab manage is likewise noticeable, sure to be valued by owners that lift their trucks.
These shots likewise provide us a better look at the outside lighting of the next-gen trucks. Among the trucks appears to have full-LED frontal lighting, with several reflectors in the upper headlight housing. Among the trucks likewise seems to be a lower-trim model without the dual rear-exhaust outlets, rather than equipped with a traditional right-corner exit exhaust. The lack of a venturi tip recommends it’s a gas-powered model.
If we do not see the vehicles in September, the Los Angeles Auto Show in November is an excellent bet. We can anticipate revealing during the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.
