  1. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com April 26th, 2019 Our friend Tim Esterdahl from Pickup Truck and SUV Talk got an awesome chance to tour the Ft Wayne Assembly Plant. That's one of the two plants that produce the 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra. Tim's tour was narrated by GM's Executive Chief Engineer Tim Herrick. Sit back and enjoy this look inside the manufacturing of the all new Silverado and Sierra. And if you like what you see, subscribe to Tim's YouTube Channel.

  3. 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.

  4. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/5/2018 With the debut of GMC's all new and very fancy MultiPro Tailgate last week in Detroit questions have been floated regarding various aspects of the design and how available the tailgate will truly be. So, we reached out to GMC directly and have some answers for you. Here we are in no particular order: Will the MultiPro be available on any trim level other than SLT and Denali? YES. Although only the SLT and Denali trim levels were mentioned last week, we can confirm the MultiPro tailgate will be available on the SLE trim level as well. Can I open the MultiPro with the keyfob? YES. Just the tailgate as a whole, however. There's no option to open the inner section unless you do it with the button on the gate. Will the MultiPro prevent itself from opening into mounted ball hitch? NO. This is the biggest issue we can see with the MultiPro going forward. The inner gate is fully susceptible to damage from a mounted trailer hitch. GMC does mention that a warning sticker will be present to remind owners not to do just this. Owners will have to remember going forward that if they leave a ball hitch mounted, the MultiPro WILL HIT IT. Will GMC offer a manual (cheaper) version of the MultiPro later on? UNDETERMINED. GMC wouldn't answer our questions about a cheaper, manual version of the MultiPro in the future. We think it would be a great idea and GMC punting the question means the option is in play for the future. Will Chevrolet ever get the MultiPro? LIKELY. Although no-one from Chevy is talking, we expect the Silverado to get the MultiPro (or a Chevy-named version) at some point in the near future, perhaps in model year two (2020)
  5. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com April 12th, 2019 A few months ago we started to notice something on our 2019 Silverado that no owner of a brand new vehicle wants to see. Rust. Specifically on our rear bumper, just around the plastic step. It wasn't huge and didn't spread very far from the edge... but we couldn't stop noticing it. There was no excuse for rust on a 8 month old vehicle with less than 10,000 miles. The photo above shows the minimal but noticeable rust patch. It was even happening on both sides and in the same place. The issue seemed odd. Unfortunately, we've just been too busy to bring it by to our local dealership for them to look at. Lucky for us, our procrastination has paid off, because in the time between us first noticing the problem and getting off our lazy asses to drive to our dealer, GM has released a TSB about this very issue. It appears that on most of the early trucks, production of the bumper was completed incorrectly. The steel assemblies should be bent into shape then chrome plated. But that didn't happen in a small part of the early bumpers. The supplier bent the area around the side step after the bumper was chromed. The new folds in the steel damaged the chrome, cracking it and making the truck susceptible to rusting. What's the fix? If your bumper is rusting already, Chevy and GMC will replace it. If it has not yet started to rust, they will apply an automotive grade wax/sealant to prevent rust in the future. If you're unsure if your 2019 has this issue we suggest doing the following: 1. Give your truck a bath for heavens sake! 2. Clean the rear bumper step area with a hose or pressure washer. Front and back! We find lots of dirt collects behind our step in the bumper assembly. 3. Inspect around the foot step area and behind the foot step area. We found rust in both areas! 4. If in doubt, wait for it to rust and kindly ask for a new rear bumper. Our dealership, Banks Chevrolet in Concord, NH has been great getting our rust issue fixed. Our service adviser Justin has kept us in the loop during the repair and gave us a loaner Silverado LT while they have our truck. He even made sure any other outstanding service updates are also applied to our LTZ while it was in the shop. As it turned out, there were six open issues that needed addressed. Here's the official Service Update you can print out and bring to your dealer when you take your Silverado or Sierra in for service.
  6. Alright everyone... now that we've seen what the all new Sierra will look like, I think it's time for a good ol fashion'd vote down. Which truck do you like best? Which one would you buy? Which design do you like better? There can be only one! Place your vote now. VERSUS and of course, this is all just for good fun.
  7. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 10/30/18 Day one of SEMA 2018 is almost already in the books and we've barely made it through the South Hall (which houses the Truck/Off-Road section) trying to get our eyes on every customized 2019 being shown inside exibitor's booths. There's no way we'll see everything but what we have seen already is impressive. Accessories for the all new Sierra and Silverado are coming out in force, even if the trucks are still trickling into dealerships. Although the new fullsize pickups are GM's hot new thing, the automaker has not made it a focus of this year's show. That means, while we're seeing a ton of 2019 Silverado and Sierra, there are 2x as many 2019 Dodge Ram and 5x as many Jeep Wranglers. Here's what we've seen so far. We'll add more photos to this thread as we take them.
  8. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 7/31/18 We've certainly seen a lot of photos of the all new 2019 Silverado and Sierra. Photos of the interior and photos of the trim packages. Photos on-road and photos off-road. But what we have not seen yet is how the 2019 Silverado and Sierra's new T1XX platform looks mechanically under the surface. Until today. GM-Trucks.com has obtained exclusive copies of parts diagrams for the next generation Silverado. From these drawings we can gleam just a little bit more about how the next generation trucks are different from their predecessors. Set One: Front Suspension, Differential, Axle, and Driveshaft Our first batch of drawings show us a few things, mainly the new T1XX front suspension setup (which is similar to the Colorado), a new HD-like front differential, a new rear axle with new yoke, and a new driveshaft setup. Set Two: Front and Rear Brake Calipers Our second batch of drawings show the new 2019 T1XX front and rear calipers (with electronic parking brake). Set Three: Engine Blow Out, Dual Exhaust, Cold Air Factory Intake And our third batch of drawings show what the new L87/L84 looks like blown apart (with individual cylinder deactivation instead of an AFM VLOM). We also see the new dual exhaust and brand new airbox design that draws cool air from the front of the vehicle instead of the side fender. Thanks to our "GM deepthroat" for sending these files our way. Next week we head to Wyoming for our first drive of the 2019 Silverado while our 2019 Silverado LTZ is being shipped to our dealership from the factory.
  9. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 10/3/18 Those wishing for some guidance on how the all new 3.0L Duramax Diesel will rate just had that wish come true. The Fast Lane Truck got the scoop from someone with access to General Motor's Canadian Dealer Portal. Promotional material that included specs for the new 3.0L were photographed and emailed to the website yesterday. That means someone with dealer access facilitated the leak. The not quite yet official figures rate the light-duty diesel engine at 282 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The material also claims a highway rated fuel economy of 28 mpg. That's more power then both Ford and Ram's small diesels, which produce 250hp/440 lb-ft and 240hp/420 lb-ft respectively. The same spec sheets also list the towing capacity of the 3.0L at 7,800 lbs, which falls below the 5.3L and 6.2L's 9,000lb+ rating. To us this signals that GM will market the 3.0L Diesel as a daily commuter for someone who occasionally tows. What do you think about the ratings and capability? Chime in on this thread in our 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra forum.
  10. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 6/29/2018 Even with an all new dynamic fuel management system, the 2019 Silverado equipped with a 5.3L or 6.2L engine won't see any better fuel economy then their 2018 predecessor. Today Chevrolet released more information on what the 2019 Silverado will cost and what fuel economy we'll see. Here's the new chart.. 2019 CHEVROLET SILVERADO CAPABILITIES 4.3L V-6 w/AFM (6-spd.) 5.3L V-8 w/AFM (6-spd.) 2.7L I-4 Turbo w/AFM (8-spd.) 5.3L V-8 w/DFM (8-spd.) 6.2L V-8 w/DFM (10-spd.) 3.0L I-6 Turbo-Diesel (10-spd.) Horsepower 285 355 310 355 420 TBA Torque 305 383 348 383 460 TBA Max towing 8,000 11,000 7,200 11,600 12,200 TBA Max payload 2,500 2,430 2,280 2,190 2,100 TBA EPA-estimates (city/hwy/comb) N/A N/A N/A 17/23/19 16/20/17 N/A From these official figures, a 2019 Silverado with the 5.3L is rated 17 MPG City , 23 MPG Highway and 19 MPG Combined. The 2019 6.2L is rated at 16 MPG City, 20 MPG Highway, and 17 MPG Combined. Chevy does not specificy if these numbers are for 2 or 4 wheel drive, so we can only guess. If it's 2WD, then the 5.3L gains 1MPG in the City but stays flat in the Highway and Combined ratings compared to 2018 figures. The 6.2L also gains 1MPG in the city but loses 1MPG in the Highway rating. The Combined rating stays flat. So, where is the big benefit to DFM? Is GM's new fancy technology going to wow in real world driving or just with fancy words? We'll find out soon when we take delivery of our 2019 Long Term Silverado LTZ in a few weeks. See Also:
  11. As we get closer to roll out of the new models we're investing a lot of time getting the framework together for an AWESOME 2019+ Silverado and Sierra Owners community. One of those ways is a rocking Facebook Group. Yesterday we started the 2019+ Chevy Silverado & GMC Sierra Owners Group on Facebook. If you're interested in these new trucks, come on over and join our brand new closed Facebook Group. We've nearly gained 200 members in just one day. We'd love to have you join us too! 2019+ Chevy Silverado & GMC Sierra Owners Group, by GM-Trucks.com
