It's never too early to start talking about the process of shopping around for a dealer, pricing, the ordering process, deposits, and production delivery times. Although we're still months away from orders being accepted, this thread is meant to be a place where everyone can check in and share their experiences as they go through the process.
I'm also going to document as many important dates in this initial post as I can. I'll attempt to keep everyone up to date on start of production, any ordering limitations, and when the ordering system will go live.

Thanks to a tip by a forum member, we now know exactly when we can start ordering a new 2019 Silverado or Sierra. Or at least, when dealers can start to submit orders.
So when can your local Chevy or GMC dealer get your 2019 order processed? The answer isn't one date... it's a couple. And it depends on if you want a Crew Cab or a Double Cab.
If you want a Crew Cab
You're in luck. These are being ordered and produced first. Fleet orders start in a few days on April 26th. Retail orders through the Dealer Order Submission Process or DOSP start May 17th. Production is still undetermined with Quarter 3 (July/August/September) being listed for when the first saleable trucks will roll off the line.
If you want a Double Cab
You're going to have to wait a few more months. Fleet orders start June 21st. The initial DOSP will begin August 16th and production is estimated in Quarter 4 (October/November/December).
If you want a Regular Cab
You're really out of luck. All regular cab ordering and production is TBD. At this rate, don't expect any regular cab ordering or delivery at least until late late 2018 or early 2019.
Stay Up To Date!

Say hello to the refreshed 2019 Chevrolet Camaro. Sporting an all new front end and rear tail lights, the updated pony car just might be an acquired taste.
Whether or not the updated design is appealing to look at (we're divided here at the GM-Trucks.com office), the revised 6th gen is ready to roll with new features and a turbocharged 1LE track model.
Chevrolet has a decent update in their press release, so we've copied it here instead of just regurgitating it for you:
CHEVROLET INTRODUCES BOLD 2019 CAMARO
New designs, available tech and first-ever Turbo 1LE energize broader lineup
DETROIT — Chevrolet today introduced a reinvigorated 2019 Camaro lineup with distinctive designs, new available technologies and the first-ever Turbo 1LE.
“Lauded since its introduction for its balance of driving fun, refinement and value, the restyled 2019 Camaro reaches even higher with more of the design, technology and choices that customers want,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet marketing director for Cars and Crossovers. “It’s a performer with few competitors and a pillar of Chevrolet’s energized car lineup.”
Camaro SS now offered with 10L80 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission featuring custom launch control and line lock Chevrolet Infotainment 3 systems, including available navigation New available Rear Camera Mirror* New available Forward Collision Alert* Performance-driven design
The 2019 Camaro’s updated designs are not only striking but also help to improve performance. For instance, the grille details and hood and fascia vents were designed for optimized air flow, either to cool components or help minimize drag or lift. Camaro designers follow the mantra that all elements must not only be beautiful but also enhance performance.
Design highlights include:
New front-end styling with distinct differences between LS/LT, RS and SS, including the fascia, grille, LED dual-element headlamps and reshaped hood (ZL1 retains its airflow-optimized front-end styling) SS-specific front fascia with “flowtie” open bowtie grille emblem and aero-enhancing air curtains, specific headlamps with new LED signature and extractor-style hood RS Appearance Package available on LT adds unique polished black grille with Galvano Chrome lower inserts, new LED headlamps with LED signature light bar, specific rear fascia with rear diffuser and 20-inch wheels New rear fascias for all models, with specific diffusers on RS and SS when equipped with Dual Mode Exhaust New LED taillamps with a more sculptured evolution of Chevrolet’s signature dual-element design; red lenses are featured on LS and LT, with RS, SS and ZL1 featuring dark-tinted neutral-density lenses New 20-inch wheel designs on RS and SS
The new Camaro Turbo 1LE joins the V6 1LE, SS 1LE and ZL1 1LE to round out Camaro’s lineup of 1LE track stars. Leveraging the impressive performance and ideal weight distribution enabled by Camaro’s 2.0L turbocharged engine, the Turbo 1LE comes exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission and a tailored chassis package derived from the V6 1LE to offer track-capable performance.
FE3 suspension with larger diameter front and rear stabilizer bars, specifically tuned dampers, stiffer rear cradle bushings and cross-axis ball joints in the rear tow links that enhance lateral stiffness Split front/rear summer-only tire sizes: P245/40R20 (front) and P275/35R20 (rear) 2.0L turbo engine with 275 hp (205 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm) Brembo brake package with low-metallic performance pads Nearly 50/50 weight balance Driver Mode Selector with Sport Mode and new Track Mode; Competition Mode (within Sport and Track Modes) includes performance instrument readouts, launch control, shift lights and more Standard sueded flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob plus available Recaro seats Camaro tech: next-generation infotainment, rear camera mirror and more
The 2019 Camaro offers Chevrolet’s next-generation Infotainment 3 with all-new systems that provide a more personalized experience and a more intuitive interface.
They’re the most advanced infotainment systems ever from Chevrolet, with functionality that mimics the latest smartphones and tablets, and cloud connection designed to enhance personalization, available navigation, voice recognition, apps and more. They even allow vehicle software updates to be automatically uploaded over the air.
The standard system features a 7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen. An 8-inch diagonal touchscreen running Infotainment 3 is available, including one with navigation.
Additional new technology features and enhancements include:
Standard Rear Camera Mirror on 2SS and ZL1 models offers a wider, less obstructed field of view using a camera display that eliminates potential obstructions such as rear body pillars or seat headrests; a conventional rearview mirror view is also available Improved standard rear-vision camera system* with a new, digital high-definition camera that offers improved view quality Forward Collision Alert joins Camaro’s roster of available active safety features Enhanced Performance Data Recorder system

Mainline production of the 2019 Silverado and Sierra has begun on a limited scale. Automotive Sales Consultant Mike Davenport just posted four photographs from outside General Motor's Fort Wayne Assembly Plant to his Facebook Page.
The pictures are confirmation that 2019 T1 Platform production has indeed begun, if only on a limited scale. The 2019 Silverado High Country and 2019 Sierra AT4, both high level trims, are destined to GM's "Captured Test Fleet", a standard practice for a new model launch. Basically, GM employees will end up driving these trucks and getting the final kinks out of the production process. It's also interesting to note that both are also equipped with the 6.2L V8- an engine we still don't know the power output of.
Mike was kind enough to let us use these photos, so do him a favor and check out his facebook page and youtube channel
The same High Country was also videotaped and posted to YouTube on March 31st so it's a fair bet we'll be seeing a LOT more of the 2019 T1 pickups very soon.
