Jacksonville Chevrolet Shoppers First Look At The 2019 Chevy Silverado

Updates are a fact of life in the automotive industry. Through every new iteration, Chevrolet Silverado buyers expect the model to stay true to its heritage and retain its classic looks. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s redesign doesn’t disappoint Silverado enthusiasts. This year’s Silverado gets an assortment of potent V8s that provide powerful acceleration, the ability to tow and haul heavy payloads, and responsive handling. We expect the Silverado 1500 to continue to be popular with buyers at the Jacksonville Chevrolet dealership.

Exterior changes include a grille that’s now more pronounced, along with a slight redesign of the Silverado’s body panels. There are new engines on offer, a new transmission, more up-to-date tech features and more optional equipment. The revised 8-inch touchscreen now has higher-resolution graphics and a new configuration for some of the controls.

The 2019 Silverado 1500 is up to 450 pounds lighter than the 2018 Silverado, a feat made possible by the inclusion of high-strength steel and aluminum in the pickup’s components. At the same time, this Silverado is larger than the outgoing model, providing passengers with more space, as well as three more inches of rear legroom.

Buyers appreciate that they can get the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 configured for their needs. The Silverado is available as a powerful truck for pulling trailers and towing cargo, as a spartan work truck, as a rough-and-ready off-roader or as a comfortable daily driver that approaches a luxury-level of comfort.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is available in eight trim levels, listed as Work Truck (WT), Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country. There are three cab styles and three bed sizes to choose from.

The 2019 Silverado's Power Plant Packs A Punch For Jacksonville Chevy Drivers

There are six engines on offer. A 4.3-liter V6 puts out 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque. This block is joined to a six-speed automatic transmission. A 5.3-liter V8 engine with Active Fuel Management makes 355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine gets the same six-speed automatic as the 4.3-liter V6. A 2.7-liter inline-four is good for 310 hp, connected with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Two engines feature Chevrolet’s Dynamic Fuel Management system. A 5.3-liter V8 powerplant makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is teamed to an eight-speed automatic transmission. A 6.2-liter V8 blasts out an impressive 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a 10-speed automatic.

A 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel engine will be offered later in the model year. This engine is joined to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Full specs will be available closer to the engine’s release date.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado allows owners to store profiles for as many as five trailers. Drivers can check the tire pressure of the trailer and check the lights remotely via a smartphone app. A rear camera shows the driver the view behind the trailer. Owners will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the trailer is secure. If someone tries to disconnect the trailer while the truck is locked, an alarm will sound.
