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.
Here's What Our Photographer Reports
We now have our best shots yet of the 2019 Chevy Silverado, caught from all angles during some traction tests at a winter testing facility.Our prior look at the 2019 Silverado was limited to a partially-blocked profile, as it was being loaded into a car hauler. With these new prototypes now caught frolicking on the ice, we can see the hugely important, all-new truck in much more variety, with new details revealed. We see more efforts by GM disguise artists to try to confuse onlookers that they’re looking at a Ford prototype. In addition to F-150-shaped tail-light camouflage, and an attempt to hint at the F-150’s dropped window line, we now see that they’ve put a fake oval within front grille. This is a common tactic with GM, as they’ve done this on past Silverado, Tahoe, and Yukon prototypes. Make no mistake, this is 100% a GM pickup truck prototype.Our sources at AutoPacific tell us that this new Silverado is accelerating it’s efforts to create an aluminum-intensive body to match the Ford F-series trucks. The next-gen truck—reportedly being developed with the internal code name T1XC—is expected to reach the market in late 2018, as a 2019 model. Our sources tell us that GM has made great efforts to refine its production processes with these lightweight materials, and promises a lighter, stronger, and more efficient truck than its competitors.It will be interesting to see how the next Silverado ultimately stacks up against the F-150, and how GM will spin their current criticism of aluminum intensive trucks when they have one of their own.
