  1. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 5/18/2018 As it turns out, the leaked figures for the 2019 5.3L and 6.2L V8 engines wasn't far off. That's the good news. The bad news is the SAE certified horsepower and torque will match 2018's numbers exactly. But that doesn't mean the 2018 and 2019 engines are the same. Instead of the 2018's Active Fuel Management, which allows the engine to switch between four and eight cylinders, the 2019 V8's have Dynamic Fuel Management. DFM can adjust the firing cylinders in up to 17 different ways. Theoretically, that should mean improved fuel economy at the same power output. Chevrolet hasn't released any fuel economy numbers yet, so that is just a theory. But if you really like the 2018 5.3L V8 and want to buy it again with the 2019 Silverado, fear not. You can option it with a six-speed transmission for WT, LT, and LT Trail Boss trims. -------------------- 2019 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 5.3L WITH DYNAMIC FUEL MANAGEMENT SPECIFICATIONS Type: 5.3L V-8 VVT DI with Dynamic Fuel Management Bore & Stroke (in / mm): 3.78 x 3.62 / 96 x 92 Block Material: Cast aluminum Cylinder Head Material: Cast aluminum Compression Ratio: 11.0:1 Firing Order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Valvetrain: Overhead valve, two valves per cylinder, variable valve timing Fuel Delivery: Direct high-pressure fuel injection with Dynamic Fuel Management Ignition System: High-energy coil-on-plug Horsepower (hp / kW @ rpm): 355 / 265 @ 5600 rpm (SAE certified) Torque (lb.-ft. / Nm @ rpm): 383 / 519 @ 4100 rpm (SAE certified) Manufacturing Location Tonawanda Engine Plant, Buffalo, N.Y. 2019 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 6.2L WITH DYNAMIC FUEL MANAGEMENT SPECIFICATIONS Type: 6.2L V-8 VVT DI with Dynamic Fuel Management Bore & Stroke (in / mm): 4.06 x 3.62 / 103.25 x 92 Block Material: Cast aluminum Cylinder Head Material: Cast aluminum Compression Ratio: 11.5:1 Firing Order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Valvetrain: Overhead valve, two valves per cylinder, variable valve timing Fuel Delivery: Direct high-pressure fuel injection with Dynamic Fuel Management Ignition System: High-energy coil-on-plug Horsepower (hp / kW @ rpm): 420 / 313 @ 5600 rpm (SAE certified) Torque (lb.-ft. / Nm @ rpm): 460 / 621 @ 4100 rpm (SAE certified) Manufacturing Location Tonawanda, N.Y.
  2. 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. NEW UPDATES AS OF: April 25th, 2018 T1XX- 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra - Important Ordering / Production Dates Pre-Production: NOW - Captured Test Fleet Production Confirmed as of March 31st.

Please contact me if you can help clarify any of these dates.
  3. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 4/25/2018 Thanks to a Facebook Group, we now have a much better idea of how the roll out and production startup of the new 2019 GMC Sierra will go. We can also make some assumptions about the 2019 Silverado. What We Now Know About The 19MY Sierra Start-Up From the screen shot posted on Facebook just a few days ago, we can gleam one major bit of information right off the bat. Only Denali and SLT level trims will be produced at the beginning. As we reported two weeks ago, the first dealer consensus and dealer order submission process will take place in May. Specifically, dealers will be able to order what looks like Denali and SLT level trims starting on May 17th. Those orders will be produced starting around the middle of July. AT4 orders will start July 19th with production slated for September. Lastly, 1SA and SLE trims won't go into dealers DOSP cycles until August 16th. Production on those trims won't begin until late October. We also learn that the initial allocation group names for the initial 2019 production run will be GLDCRW & LDSIER. Stay on top of 2019 Silverado & Sierra Ordering and Production - Read The Details How Does This Effect The MY19 Silverado? Not too much. Chevrolet's 2019 Silverado Order Book lists LT/RST/LT Trail Boss/LTZ/High Country as trim levels available, while the 2019 GMC Sierra's order book only lists SLT and Denali trims. We figure that means Chevrolet plans to offer more model choices on the Silverado off the bat. And why not? Most Sierra sold are Denali or SLT trims, so GMC won't lose out all that much. We'll stay on top of the ordering and production process for the all new 2019 Silverado and Sierra and report back with any new updates. Source: Carl Chamberlin on Facebook
  4. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 4/23/2018 Horsepower and torque ratings for the 2019 T1XX platform were published to GM's Fleet Order Guide Website over the weekend. However, as quickly as they were posted, on Monday morning they were gone. The FastLaneTruck jumped on the model order guide update early Sunday morning. GM-Trucks.com then confirmed the figures were indeed listed in the guide on Sunday but before we could write this story today the numbers had been erased. The order guide *had* listed the 2019 engines power output ratings like this: 2019 5.3L - 355hp @ 5,600rpm & 383 lb-ft of torque at 4,100rpm 2019 6.2L - 425hp @ 5,600rpm & 450 lb-ft of torque at 4,100rpm If you're aware of the current 2018 model ratings, that's a no gain rating for the 5.3L and 5hp gain and 10 lb-ft loss for the 6.2L. Could that be correct? Did GM let the cat out of the bag too early or were the wrong figures listed? Another part of this puzzle is that the 2019 5.3L will carry the RPO code of L84. That's a pretty well known Chevrolet small block designation synonymous for being the most powerful Chevy small block before the LT5 and famously produced 375-horsepower. Will we see the same for the 2019 L84 5.3L? Or will the power ratings stay the same? Either way, the engine doesn't carry the same RPO code as the 2018 model so we assume it's new in some sort of way. An exact same power rating seems unlikely but we wouldn't be surprised. And if you're wondering the 6.2L engine will wear the RPO code L87. Only time will tell.
  5. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 4/6/2018 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.
  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 4/12/2018 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!

  8. 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
  9. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/1/18 Get ready, GMC is set to finally take the covers off the all new 2019 GMC Sierra and we're LIVE at the event to bring you the best coverage. The offical show starts to get down at 3pm eastern, Noon pacific today, March 1st, 2018. GMC is making this unveiling easy on enthusiasts by live streaming the big reveal on facebook. We've made it easy to watch by embedding it into this post. So, check back here at 3pm and get ready for a ton of news that we can't wait to share. From what we've seen so far, the Sierra won't just be another Silverado and stands to carry brand unique features, at least from the start. 2019 Sierra – Diesel Engine, Carbon Fiber Cargo Box, Amazing Tailgate and Trailer Technology – Images and Facts: 2019 GMC Sierra Denali Image Gallery: 2019 GMC Sierra SLT Videos: 2019 GMC Sierra Images: Zane gets a close up demo of the new tailgate: Zane gets a closer look at the carbon fiber bed:
  10. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/5/2018 Mark Reuss hinted that GMC was not done making news with the 2019 Sierra during the brand's live event last Thursday. A "late-March" time-frame was floated as a date when enthusiasts would hear more about the next steps for the brand. Today, we know just a little bit more. This morning media invites went out for March 26th, ahead of this year's 2018 New York International Auto Show's Press Days. GMC hopes to draw journalists and media in with promises that "The recent reveal of the next generation 2019 Sierra was just the beginning..." What does that mean? Does GMC have additional models ready to show off? Considering the brand didn't address any trim level below SLT during the recent reveal might lend us some clues. Might we see a replacement for the 4.3L V6 engine? Is a new hybrid model being offered? No-one knows yet but we'll find out later this month. What do you think GMC has up their sleeve?
  11. 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)
  12. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 3-1- 2018 Our own Zane Merva was on-hand at the live GMC Sierra reveal in Michigan today. The all-new Sierra has new styling, will have a new 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine offering, and advanced technology throughout. The biggest news may be that that GMC is offering an optional carbon fiber cargo box. The new box is called CarbonPro by GMC. The company says it is now the most durable box in the industry and has the best dent, scratch and corrosion resistance of any pickup box in the segment. 62 pounds lighter than the standard steel box, the CarbonPro box replaces the standard steel inner panels and floor with carbon fiber composite material. The new CarbonPro box is not going to be ready on day one of the 2019 Sierra launch, but will come later in the model year. Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC, commented on the box, saying “In 116 years of making GMC pickup trucks, our industry-first carbon fiber box is the toughest and most durable pickup box we have ever made.” 2019 Sierra - More Space The 2019 Sierra is larger in almost every dimension and has a higher stance. Like the Silverado, the 2019 Sierra’s usable space also increases and the seat position is raised. GMC says that the crew cab has about 3 inches of added rear-seat legroom compared to the outgoing model. The rear seat backs also open to reveal storage cubbies large enough for things the size of laptops or umbrellas. The new Sierra’s cargo boxes will offer best-in- class cargo volume with the Short box having a capacity of 63 cubic feet. 2019 Sierra Technology Highlights New for 2019 is a multi-color head-up display. Rear camera mirror, surround vision multi-view camera for backing and moving in tight spaces, advanced active safety system and a new suite of features. The tailgate also has a few new tricks. We will do a deep dive on the tailgate and the trailering system shortly. 2019 Sierra Denali – Refinement The Sierra Denali is GM’s most luxurious truck as well as being contractor–grade. The new Denali has navigation standard. Denali also has available 22-inch Ultra Bright aluminum wheels. GMC also makes the Denali name more prominent for 2019. There is bold DENALI nameplate on the tailgate. Denali will also have GM-exclusive materials. There is premium leather seating featuring a large-pebbled grain with a contrasting stitch pattern. Wood trim will include authentic open-pore wood materials and there will also be dark-finish aluminum accents. 2019 Sierra Styling We will let Zane weigh in on the new design elements having seen the truck in person. Watch for his analysis later this afternoon.
  13. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 2/26/2018 GMC is teasing what the all new 2019 GMC Sierra will look like, only a few days ahead of the pickups official launch later this week. Today, the brand used Instagram to show a highly darkened image of the all new Sierra's front end. In the image (above and below) you can see the GMC mark the and brand's distinctive "C" shaped DRL lighting. What does the rest of the truck look like? Join us on Thursday to find out as we cover the 2019 Sierra's unveiling live from Detroit. Are you interested in the next Generation T1XX Silverado or Sierra?

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
