You’ve always dreamed of owning a Chevrolet truck, and now, you’re ready to make it happen.
You’ve heard a lot about the 2019 Chevy Silverado, and you think it might be the right choice for you. Still, you’d like to learn more about the specs, what sets it apart from other makes and models, and its overall safety ratings.
You’re also curious about potential features, the amount of cargo space you’ll be able to enjoy, and more.
Consider this post your ultimate guide to the 2019 Chevy Silverado.
In addition to making sure you have a grasp on what makes this car such a great choice, we’ll also fill you in on how to find a reliable Chevrolet dealer who can help you to drive off with the perfect car.
The 2019 Chevy Silverado: The Basics
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado’s biggest upgrade from previous models is its raw power on the road.
With up to 420 horsepower and a new 5.3 V8 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission, you’ll notice a faster acceleration and a much stronger throttle response than with past models.
It comes complete with automatic stop/start technology and 460lb.-foot of torque and boasts a 12,200 maximum towing capacity. The in-vehicle trailing system makes it easy to get real-time reads on your tire pressure, fuel economy, and more.
You can select from six different drive modes, including tow/hall, snow and ice, and off-road driving.
Plus, with eight unique trim options to choose from, it’s easier than ever to find the exact features you need.
Another major improvement is the weight of the car itself — it’s about 300 pounds lighter than previous models. Not only does this mean a smoother ride, but it also means better overall mileage. You’ll be able to enjoy 17mpg with this new Chevy, a full gallon more than the past model.
Of course, the hallmark of any Chevrolet truck is the amount of cargo space — and the new Silverado certainly doesn’t disappoint.
This model offers up to 20% more cargo volume than the majority of trucks on the market today and boasts a best-in-class bed length for short and standard box options.
The Durabed flooring is lightweight but exceptionally durable, as it’s made from roll-formed steel. Plus, we know you’ll love the feeling of security that comes with 12 standard tie-downs (three of which are welded into the box corners) and 9 accessory tie-downs.
You can choose from the power release tailgate, which can be automatically raised and lowered with your key fob; or the power-up tailgate, which lets you push a button yourself.
Over 17,000 car accidents happen every single day — and we know you want to find a car that helps you to stay as safe on the road as is possible.
One of the most well-reviewed aspects of the 2019 Chevy Silverado is its safety features. Given the fact that this model underwent 7 million miles of testing before hitting the market, it’s not hard to see why.
First of all, there’s the unique head-up display, designed to help drivers keep their eyes on the road. This display projects data about your speed, your navigation system, safety alerts, and your fuel consumption directly onto your windshield.
The car also comes complete with forward collision alert, low-speed forward automatic braking, and even front pedestrian braking ideal for those driving through neighborhoods. You can also elect to include lane-keeping assist and lane departure warning technology, along with blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warnings.
Additional standard safety features include stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes, a rearview camera, and daytime running lights.
This model received excellent overall NHTSA crash ratings, especially regarding side crash protection.
Additional Chevy Silverado Truck Features
Whether you’re interested in buying a new or used Chevy, we know that you’re curious about the potential features and luxurious add-ons you have to choose from.
You can easily choose to upgrade from two-wheel to four-wheel drive, and add a longer truck bed onto the back.
Perhaps the most popular upgrades include premium seating, aluminum wheels, and LED headlights. In terms of appearance, talk to your dealer about grille upgrades, front fascias, and more.
Overall Owner Satisfaction
Of course, before you make any final decision, you want to know what other drivers think about the 2019 Chevy Silverado.
Drivers say that they’re the most satisfied with the LT model, and that the overall driving experience, value, and lightweight frame are the biggest standalone improvements over previous models.
Many drivers also note the additional 2.5 inches of legroom, the peppy sport driving mode, and the power of the four-cylinder engine. They also note that off-road driving is much more comfortable here than with previous models, thanks in particular to the Trail Boss suspension.
