Over the last few months, several auto news outlets have released their own 2019 Chevrolet Silverado spy shots, as the upcoming pickup truck has been spotted testing in places such as California and Michigan. While much of the 2019 Silverado has still managed to stay under wraps, the spy shots have helped us flesh out some information—and rumors—about the new pickup.
The biggest change appears to be the headlights, which are more angled and menacing than the current headlights. In fact, it appears that Chevy is making good use of LED lighting all around the 2019 Silverado.
Other rumored changes include more aluminum in the construction, in order to rival the Ford F-150. Adding aluminum to the construction will reduce overall weight for the Silverado, giving a boost to efficiency. Rumor has it that Chevy has been watching Ford’s victories and mistakes with the aluminum construction in order to produce an aluminum product that is even more durable yet more efficient than that of the F-150.
We also expect updates to the Silverado’s V8 engines, but the spy shots aren’t enough to confirm what changes have been made. Because the Camaro ZL1 was just offered with a new ten-speed automatic, it is reasonable to expect we’ll see that as an option for the 2019 Silverado.
Interior spy shots of the 2019 Silverado don’t offer many insights. Reportedly, the interior looks very similar, though the steering wheel may have gotten a redesign, now offering a four-spoke design.
We expect a formal 2019 Chevy Silverado unveiling soon, perhaps at the State Fair of Texas this September. Until then, keep checking back with us at Lowe Chevrolet for updates.
