It’s always nice to get a surprise gift at Christmastime.  And, Chevrolet delivered a spectacular one during a centennial celebration for Chevy trucks at the Texas Motor Speedway last weekend.  Meet the next-generation 2019 Chevy Silverado that will be built in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

While the powertrains will be new, and the truck will be significantly lighter with a stronger bed, the Silverado’s most distinguishing feature is the aggressive exterior design.  The front takes styling cues from the Tahoe SUV while the side is marked by chiseled front fenders and upper body crease that runs from the front doors to the taillamps.  A wide bar across the tailgate reads “CHEVROLET.”

Among the eight Silverado models is the new LT Trailboss edition, which takes off-road equipment from the Z71 package and adds a 2-inch suspension lift.

During development of the new truck, Chevrolet solicited feedback from 7,000 customers.  They are a passionate group who love their trucks.

“Our owners’ passion for Chevrolet trucks is truly humbling,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet.  “Many of our owners depend on their trucks for work and play, personalize their trucks in astonishing ways and pass their loyalty for Chevy Trucks down from generation to generation.”

More details will be released at the 2019 Silverado’s official launch during January’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which occurs exactly 100 years after the first Chevy pickups were delivered.

Storm Forward!
