the 2019 silverado boasts a striking design compared with the current model. its familiar horizontal grille is modernized with projector headlamps and curved led strips. the sheet metal is drawn taut across the hood and front fenders, and has aggressive swoops carved into the side. a dramatic shoulder line runs straight across the doors and bed to swooping taillights. “chevrolet” is stamped wide across the rear tailgate. “it’s strong, it’s modern, but it’s instantly recognizable as a #chevytruck
,” said #alanbatey
president of general motors’ north american operations.
the model shown in texas is the 2019 silverado lt trailboss. the new trim comes with the z71 off-road package and a two-inch suspension lift. it is one of eight trims that will be available across the 2019 silverado lineup.
mixed materials are prevalent throughout the new silverado, batey said. but the automaker did not offer many details about the truck’s construction.
the new silverado features a higher-grade steel alloy in its bed floor, batey said. the steel alloy indicates that gm is not following ford, which uses aluminum to build truck beds.
according to gm, the silverado’s high-grade material reduces the truck’s total weight. ounce for ounce, the steel alloy is stronger than conventional steel. #ninfonetwork #vehicleninfo #foodninfo #entertainmentninfo #buzzfeed #huffpostgram #autoweek #porsche #elonmusk #tesla #theboringcompany
