2019 Silverado Delivers More Truck, More Capability, More Value



DETROIT — Today, Chevrolet announced that the 2019 Silverado LT will be larger, more capable, more fuel efficient and feature a starting at MSRP that is up to $700 less than the outgoing model.

“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability, and value,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “The next-gen Silverado continues that tradition — offering more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities and a lower starting at MSRP on our highest volume model.”

The 2019 Silverado LT crew cab has a starting at MSRP $700 less than today’s truck, even with new standard equipment including an all-new 2.7L Turbo engine with 22 percent more torque than the 4.3L V-6 it replaces, an eight-speed automatic transmission, stop-start technology and active aero shutters.

The upscale and comprehensively equipped High Country also introduces a host of new standard equipment, including the 5.3L V-8 with new Dynamic Fuel Management, push-button start, stop-start technology, active aero shutters, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Advanced Trailering System, enhanced LED exterior lighting, dual exhaust outlets and class-exclusive power up/down tailgate — and a starting at MSRP increase of only $1,000.
Other available equipment introduced on the 2019 Silverado includes:
  • Z71 Off-road Equipment Package is now available on all models (and standard on Trail Boss models, which also feature a factory-installed 2-inch lifted suspension, Rancho™ monotube shocks, and Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac all-terrain tires). The Z71 package includes:
  • Off-road tuned Rancho™ twin-tube shocks.
  • Electronic hill descent control.
  • Two-speed transfer case and automatic locking rear differential.
  • Skid plates for engine oil pan and transfer-case protection.
  • Heavy-duty air filter.
  • 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires.
  • Dual exhaust outlets for models equipped with V-8 engines.
  • Advanced, active-safety features, including:
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert*.
  • Front and Rear Park Assist*.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert*.
  • Forward Collision Alert* and Following Distance Indicator*. 
  • Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking*.
  • Front Pedestrian Braking*.
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning*.
  • Safety Alert Seat*.
  • IntelliBeam headlamps, high-beam assist.
  • Advanced technology features, including:
  • GM-exclusive, 3 x 7-inch configurable color head-up display.
  • 8-inch configurable driver information center.
  • Surround Vision*.
  • Rear Camera Mirror*
The next-gen Silverado is also larger than the outgoing model in virtually every dimension. For example, the Silverado crew cab short box has 1.2 inches more total width, 1.5 inches more total height, 1.7 inches more total length and 3.9 inches more wheelbase.

As a result, the Silverado offers an additional 3 inches of cab length for all configurations and up to 4 cubic feet more interior volume. It also offers the largest cargo volume of any full-size truck in short-bed, standard-bed, and long-bed models. In fact, at 62.9 cubic feet, the Silverado short bed offers more cargo volume than the standard bed of the Ford F-150.

Despite the larger footprint, the Silverado is up to 450 pounds lighter than the outgoing truck (crew cab, short-bed models with the 5.3L V-8 and Max Towing Package), due to advanced manufacturing and the use of mixed materials.

The 2019 Silverado lineup also offers more choices than ever, including six engine/transmission combinations that give customers different combinations of performance, efficiency, and value, as well as increased towing and payload capabilities:
  • Crew cab Silverado models increase in payload up to 14 percent or 340 pounds.
  • The 4.3L V-6 now offer a maximum of 8,000 pounds towing, up 400 pounds (regular cab, rear-wheel-drive models).
  • The 5.3L V-8 with Max Towing Package now offers a maximum of 11,600 pounds towing, up 400 pounds (double-cab, rear-wheel-drive models).
  • For 2019, the 6.2L V-8 is now exclusively offered with four-wheel drive. Equipped with the Max Towing Package, it now delivers a maximum of 12,200 pounds towing, up 500 pounds from a similarly equipped 2018 model (double-cab, four-wheel-drive models).
The first engines to be produced will be the 5.3L V-8 equipped with an eight-speed automatic, and the 6.2L V-8 equipped with a 10-speed automatic. Both offer more than 5 percent improvement in
city fuel economy, for an improvement of 1 mile per gallon based on EPA estimates.

Models equipped with the 5.3L V-8 and rear-wheel drive offer an EPA-estimated 17 miles per gallon city, 23 highway and 19 combined. Models equipped with four-wheel drive and the 6.2L V-8 offer an EPA-estimated 16 miles per gallon city, 20 highway and 17 combined.

EPA estimates for the other engines, including the all-new 2.7L Turbo and all-new Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel, are not yet available. However, both engines are expected to offer customers even greater fuel efficiency choices.

July 11th Work Truck Wednesday - Crew Cab LCF with 12' Contractor Body





Contractor Bodies are one of the most useful of truck bodies in that you have large lockable compartments for tools, parts, supplies and much more while at the same time having the utility of a flatbed truck including a heavy-duty rack. This is the reason that so many contractors love the Contractor Body.

Then, when you put this 12' Contractor Body on an LCF Crew Cab chassis, you get something far more useful by being able to carry the entire crew to the job site in comfort and the tight turning radius that the LCF affords. This creates a great combination and a truck that will outlast many others on the road too.

This particular 2017 new Chevrolet Low Cab Forward truck is Stock Number M171018 and has a GVWR of 14,500 lbs with a wheelbase of only 150" that is only slightly longer than that of an 8' pickup truck. No wonder the maneuverability is stellar! The 12' Contractor Body is by Harbor Truck Bodies.

This truck is subject to prior sale. Call us for special pricing on this and see more here.
