Next-Gen 2019 Silverado Steps Up Its Game

2019 Chevy Silverado

Everybody is waiting for the release of the next-gen Chevy Silverado, which promises unparalleled performance and capability. The new Silverado also promises exceptional value: it will cost $700 less than the previous model.

To develop the new model, Chevrolet focused on optimizing the Silverado’s power, capability, value, and space. To uphold and further the long-standing tradition of exceptional Silverado trucks, the next-gen Silverado offers “more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities and a lower starting at MSRP on our highest volume model,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.

Despite its more affordable price tag, the 2019 Silverado will feature an all-new standard 2.7-liter Turbo engine with torque that is superior to the previous standard engine. To elevate your 2019 Silverado even further, you can select the High Country trim that comes with top-of-the-line standard equipment, including a 5.3-liter V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, and an Advanced Trailering System. With the Silverado’s six total engine/transmission combinations, you’ll be able to pick the powertrain that best meets your needs.

The next-gen Silverado is larger than the previous generation, but conveniently 450 pounds lighter. It is three inches longer and offers four more cubic feet of cargo room, making for a more spacious cabin and comfortable driving experience. In addition, the new Silverado offers the largest cargo volume of any full-size truck — including short-bed, standard-bed, and long-bed models — at 62.9 cubic feet.

2019 Silverado

If you drive a pickup, you need it to have a strong, capable engine. For the 2019 model year, the Silverado engine lineup is getting even more impressive and even bigger. You will have six engine and transmission combinations to choose from.

“A major focus of the next-generation Silverado is expanding the range of choices,” said Tim Asoklis, chief engineer for the Silverado 1500. “With all-new engines and a broader model range, there’s a Silverado for everyone, whether you’re buying your first pickup or your tenth.”

More than half of the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 models will be equipped with an advanced V8 engine. There will be two updated versions to choose from: the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter. These engines will come with an industry-first Dynamic Fuel Management system that includes 17 modes of cylinder deactivation.

There will also be an all-new 2.7-liter turbocharged engine that will replace the current 4.3-liter V6. The new engine is expected to deliver 22% more torque and greater fuel economy than the current model.

In early 2019, you will also have the option of an all-new Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six turbo diesel engine. This engine will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and will come with stop/start technology.

GMC Honors Veterans at Heroes Gala

GMC honors veteransGeneral Motors has long been a supporter of service men and women of the U.S. Military. Recently, GMC and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation recognized some of bravest veterans at the 6th annual Honoring Our Heroes Gala to benefit the Smart Home Program and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan.

“GMC’s Professional Grade identity is a perfect fit for these organizations because it is the same philosophy these veterans live by day in and day out,” said GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek. “This mindset drives us to strengthen our efforts and help provide our veterans the state-of-the-art Smart Homes they need to achieve independent lives.”

The Smart Home Program builds custom-designed, mortgage-free homes for some of the most catastrophically injured service members in our country. The Tunnel to Towers foundation has pledged to build at least 200 smart homes for these brave men and women.

Along with this program, GMC honors veterans in a variety of ways. Nationwide, the unemployment rate for vets is 3.7%. In Michigan, it is under 3.5%, thanks to companies like GM, which currently employs about 5,000 veterans. GM has also offered a military discount program for years and will extend it to First Responders starting in June.

General Motors is dedicated to supporting America’s veterans. To learn more about the services and discounts offered for military service members, stop by Fullen Motor Company.
