  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-13-2018 Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2019 Silverado live tonight, and the launch was watched by GM-Trucks.com members here at the site with running commentary. The overall reaction is very positive to the new Silverado. Chevrolet’s main points of emphasis on the new truck included: Size Increases in key areas A mixed-materials approach which yields 450 pounds in weight savings 8 distinct trims tailored to customer expectations and wishes A new 3.0-liter inline diesel engine mated to the new 10-speed transmission A strong emphasis on quality New style and functionality elements throughout the truck The bed remains steel Three hosts overviewed the launch event. We have come to be fans of Mark Reuss here at GM-Trucks.com, and his well-rehearsed statements about materials and weight savings did not mask his passion for the new truck’s many improvements. One noteworthy comparison Reuss used was that of a hammer, which is made of many materials. The head of the hammer, though is steel. Reuss said, “I don’t know how much work you’d get done with an aluminum hammer.” The new truck features size increases in many key areas including in the cargo area. The rear seats will feature novel cargo cubbies. One interesting new design feature is that the seat height is increased and headroom also increases over previous Silverados. Chevy clearly wants Silverado owners to think of the truck as built for them. To that end, Chevy has created eight distinct trims, including; Work Truck, LT, LTZ, Custom, RTS, High Country, Custom Trail Boss, and LT Trail Boss. Each of the presenters highlighted the ways in which the various trims serve the needs, tastes, and wish-lists of various Silverado buyers. Throughout the presentation, the speakers continued to mention the Ft. Wayne assembly plant and its industry best quality ratings from JD Power (JD Power Hammer if you watch the Mahk videos). Even going so far as to have the plant manager take a bow. The new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbo diesel engine option was revealed, but no details were given. However, Mark Reuss did point out that he knows the specs from Ford’s release this week and promised Chevy fans would have bragging rights. The new truck’s styling is shown in the images. We will break down the elements of this new style in a separate story. The oddly placed shark-fin antenna and new front end were the topics of many Livestream viewers' comments. There is much more to say about the exciting new 2019 Silverado and GM-Trucks.com will dive deep on the many points touched upon here over the coming days and weeks.
  2. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 2/2/2018 With all the attention the 2019 Silverado has gotten in the past few weeks, we'd understand if Sierra fans are feeling a little left out. Where is the 2019 Sierra and when will we know what it looks like? Good news, very soon! March 1st, to be exact. GMC has begun the process of inviting media to "be among the first to experience the global debut of the next-generation 2019 GMC Sierra". The 2019's Sierra's new badge design and the new Denali logo appear on the invitation sent out (see above). GM-Trucks.com was one of the media outlets that received the invite and will attend the event on March 1st. The event will take place in Detroit and most likely be broadcast live online. We'll have more details of the event as we get closer. Make sure to check back for our inevitable live-chat of the whole event. Sierra fans rejoice, we'll see the all new GMC full-size soon.
  3. So, now that everyone has gotten a look at which trim levels Chevy will offer for 2019 on the Silverado..quick poll!
  4. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-15-2018 Ram launched its new 1500 today at the Detroit Auto show. Highlights of the launch include a new eTorque mild hybrid system that increases payload by 22% and towing capability by 20% due to its significant torque increases at low RPM. The New Ram also has a class-leading infotainment setup that takes FCA’s already popular UConnect system to a place no other truck seems to be in terms of size. The new Ram also has revised air suspension options, more high strength steel in its frame and other key areas which brings down weight, and is longer, wider and more aerodynamic than the outgoing model. Does the new Ram sound to you in some ways like the new Silverado? If so, watch the launch video and it will sound even more similar since its launch host also has a foreign accent, just like the two hosts of the Silverado launch event! Rule Britannia! “The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 delivers a no-compromise approach to the full-size truck segment with strength, durability, technology and efficiency,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand. “The Ram 1500 offers truck buyers leading-edge innovation with 225 pounds of weight reduction, 12,750 pounds of towing capability, a stunning Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen display and active systems that improve fuel efficiency and assist drivers. The Ram 1500 stands out as the benchmark in a very competitive segment.” The new Ram has many other interesting tidbits added. Ram says there are now 100 safety features to bore you. One plus of the new mild hybrid system is that when the truck shuts off (yup, stop-start), the new system is what powers the re-start. The parking brake is now electronic. There is a new 4X4 off-road package with cool stuff. Both Ford and GM are bragging that their new diesel engines now to Ram’s. However, Ram made sure to point out that its 1500 has a new diesel engine coming in 2019 that will “Regain all of its titles.” It sounds like 2019 is the year of the diesel. The new Ram has many very specific improvements we will explore in the coming week with focus stories and comparison and contrast stories showing where Silverado stands among the new lineup of trucks for 2019. Check out our focus on the UConnect infotainment system here.
  5. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 1/15/18 Earlier today, Fiat-Chrysler introduced their new 2019 RAM 1500 Pickup. We have more on the all new RAM here, but one thing caught our eye and we wanted to talk about it right away. The 2019 RAM's optional 12-inch Uconnect infotainment system. We were all happy that Chevrolet upgraded the interface of the MyLink System for the 2019 Silverado. That said, the brand didn't upgrade the screen or make it any larger than the last generation. To be fair, 8-inches is right in line with the market as it sits today. Ford certainly didn't offer anything larger, so Chevy apparently didn't see the need to go bigger or better with MyLink for the next generation Silverado. That might not have been a great idea. The new (and highly optional) UConnect seems like it was plucked straight from a Tesla. In comparison, 2019 MyLink looks like it was pulled from a Step 2 Playset Manual. Take a look for yourself. 2019 RAM 12-inch UConnect vs 2019 Silverado MyLink 2019 RAM Uconnect 12 inch vs 8.4 inch 2019 RAM Uconnect 12 inch Interface Of course, we've yet to actually use this new 12-inch system but we've been impressed with RAM's smaller 8.4-inch screen and interface for some time. What do you think? Does the 2019 Silverado have enough with an 8-inch MyLink System or does the 2019 RAM blow it away?
  6. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 11/13/18 Hot off the press, Chevrolet just dropped a ton of new photos and info that we've all be waiting for.

Eighty percent of the frame is made of high-strength steel varying from 2 to 5 millimeters in thickness, and every millimeter is optimized for performance using a variety of processes, including hydroforming, roll forming, conventional stamping and tailor-rolled blanking.
  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com With help from Zane Merva, Executive Editor 12-17-2017 Chevrolet unexpectedly revealed the all-new "from the ground up" 2019 Silverado at an owner's event in Texas yesterday. Lucky GM fans got to see the truck, but details are being held back in anticipation of the mid-January Detroit Auto Show. Chevy says this new truck is all about what owners want. And Chevy says what they want is "more choice, more capability, and more functionality." This based on feedback from 7,000 owner interviews. The company released a few select photos of a top trim line "Trail Boss" Silverado in a bright red. The Trail Boss trim level comes with the legendary Z71 package and a 2-inch lift. Chevrolet also made sure to mention the future full-size will come in eight different models and a slew of engine and transmission combinations. Check out the full press release at the bottom of this post for more details but the future sounds bright for the Silverado. If you're interested in seeing just how Chevy introduced the all new Silverado, check out this post with photos and video from the event.
  8. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher , GM-Trucks.com 1/8/18 Can't wait to get more information on the next generation 2019 Silverado after seeing your first look last month? Good news! You won't have to wait much longer. With the 2018 Detroit Auto Show aka North American International Auto Show starting next week, Chevrolet had hoped to preempt most of the other automakers by showing off the 2019 Silverado to journalists this Saturday night, January 13th. Unfortunately, Ford beat them to the punch today, releasing their light-duty diesel for the F-150 a full week ahead of the show. Does Chevrolet have their own surprise waiting in the wings? Will we see the elusive 4.5L Duramax anywhere on the next gen's spec sheet? What kind of horsepower will the new 5.3L produce? Will there even be a new 5.3L? What does the interior look like? We all find out when the event tees off at 6pm this Saturday night (Jan 13th, 2018). Expect us to be able to post first images shortly thereafter with a full look into all the new info in the days to follow. We were invited to the media only event but won't be in Detroit so we unfortunately can't attend. That said, we'll be covering this one from our desk live instead. See you here Saturday night!
  9. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 12/16/2017 EDITED 12/17/17: Chevrolet just staged a "surprise drop in" of a fully undisguised next generation 2019 Silverado during an event celebrating 100-years of Chevy pickups yesterday. Check out the video and photos of the event below, or see the official press photography here
  10. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-15-2017 The Detroit Free Press predicts that the Detroit Auto Show in mid-January will be "Dominated by trucks." The rumor is that Chevy may debut the 2019 Silverado at this show, or at least offer a hint of what is to come. Ram is expected to show off its new truck at the show. 2017 was a mixed year of news for the truck world. Ford seemed to win all the awards, and even with a couple hurricanes to spur sales, the overall outcome is likely to be a slight decline from the highs of 2016. Cargo areas are all the buzz right now. There are unsubstantiated reports that GM may use carbon fiber, or some type of non-metallic bed, in its upcoming trucks. Ram may have a novel tailgate. With the new trucks about to break cover, we'd like to ask what would be on your wish list for a 2019 Silverado . Post your wish in the comments below.
  11. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 11/2/2017 What will the future T1XX 2019 Silverado look like? That's the question we're getting closer to answering thanks to our amazing spy photographer. ADDED 11/7/2017 - We now also have photos of the 2019 GMC Sierra in a similar state of camo. Check out our T1XX / 2019 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra Discussion Forum Here's what our photographer says:
  12. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 11/7/2017 Only a few short days after capturing our first look at the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado without cladding for the first time, our unflagging spy photographer has done it again. This time however, the Silverado's next gen twin, a 2019 GMC Sierra got the once over. Just like the Silverado, the T1XX Sierra has shed all of it's body-disguising cladding for a more visually revealing "camo-only" set of clothes. Check out our T1XX / 2019 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra Discussion Forum Our photographer reports:
  13. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 1/31/2017 The very first photos have been captured of GM's next generation full-size Silverado pickup truck. We have licensed these photos for our members, so get ready to take your first look at the 2019 Silverado. Visit our 2019 T1XX Silverado/Sierra Forum Our spy photographer reports: Here's the photos What we can learn from these photos Principle engineering of the new Silverado is primarily done and prototypes are being manufactured These photos show two different vehicles. One has white lettering on the tires, one does not. The crew cab will be much bigger than the current generation Rear exhaust tips seem integrated into the bumper or fascia The gap between the bed and body seems much tighter than current generation trucks A large driver's hand hold is apparent inside the cab Use of LED's for some (but not all?) exterior lighting Headlights are much larger than the camo would want you to think but doesn't seem to be using production housings yet The single cab "current generation" truck may be a hybrid mule with next gen drivetrain. The "sharkfin" antenna remains Brake rotor sizes seem to be larger than current models Rear view mirrors are mounted lower on the door panel New chrome/polished wheels What we can't tell What the body is made from. It could be steel, aluminum, or composite. What types of engines will be available What do you think? We want to hear your thoughts on these first photos of the next generation Silverado. Post your comments and theories below! If you like what you see, head on over to our 2019 T1XX Next Generation Truck Forum to discuss the new Silverado with other fans!
  14. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 2/15/2017 In just the last two weeks we've gotten our first and second look at the next generation T1XX full size truck platform undergoing preliminary testing in the wild. While on the surface these photos show little more than a heavily padded truck with no discernible markings, a closer look starts to connect the dots on what the future face of the 2019 Silverado just may look like. Chevrolet is no doubt moving towards a "family face" between all products. In fact, General Motors as a company seems to be making the same move on all of its brands, underscored by the fact that you can barely tell one Cadillac from another these days. The recently previewed 2018 Traverse and Equinox underscore this by sharing remarkable, Cadillac-like family resemblance. Even further, the two crossovers also share cues with the new 2017 Malibu and Cruze cars. 2018 Traverse and 2018 Equinox 2017 Malibu and 2017 Cruze Now compare to the current generation Camaro As you can see, Chevrolet Design is most definitely trying to bake in some sort of similarity between all of its new models going forward. While vehicle each has it's own maturity and details, you cannot help but notice how similar they all look to one another. How does that relate to trucks? Well, take a look at the front end of the recent Colorado ZH2 Concept No doubt this particular Colorado was built with a different face compared to a "stock" Colorado for a very good reason. It's aggressive, uses slim headlight optics, and also shares a crude face with the newer looking Chevy models. So why construct a wholly new front fascia if not to test the market on the new direction for truck design? Speaking of slim headlight optics, don't forget that the new Traverse is the first Chevrolet to be available with D-Optic LED lighting. That basically means that the slim style headlights featured on the ZH2 could actually be closer to production that we might believe (at least in look). While the recent spyshots of the 2019 Silverado on the surface seem insignificant in solving what the true face of the truck will look like, they actually provide a lot of detail that can be used to surmise what Chevrolet has cooking. Compare the current Silverado to the K1XX Prototype Now put it all together... 1- Look at the Traverse 2- Look at the 2017 Silverado 3- Look at the ZH2 4- Look at the prototype. 5- SQUINT HARD Can you see what I see? Tell me below.
  15. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 2/14/2017 The all new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has been caught on film once again. It's only been two weeks since we got our very first look at one of GM's new fullsize pickup trucks. Now, our spy photographer has cauptured yet another set of the T1XX based Silverado undergoing cold weather testing. It's also worth mentioning that GM-Trucks.com has it's own 2019 Spy Shot Bounty Program currently active! Here's What Our Photographer Reports Here's the full set of 2019 Chevrolet Silverado undergoing cold weather testing What do you think of these new shots? Let us know what you think below!
  16. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 2/2/2017 We now have proof that the 2019 T1XX full-size pickup program is entering the later stages of development.
