will this be the basic 6.2 non-supercharged model? Or a 7.0 version?

Car and Driver said the price won't change much, even though much of the body is expected to be carbon fiber rather than fiberglass.

      This is might not be the most interesting of updates but we had to let everyone know we finally have our 2019 Silverado order number. This at least proves that the system is working and accepting new truck orders. 
       
      And our number is............Order # WDPP57
       
      Check out how we ordered our 2019 Silverado here. If you have access to GM's order tracking system, can you keep us in the loop?
       
      We hope to take delivery of our 2019 Silverado LTZ in late July or early August.

      Lomax review
       
      I recived the cover in about a week. Which is good time considering it had to go through customs to get to canada. First impression was that the box seemed light for a metal cover. The cover was well packed and secured inside the box. Installing the cover was straight forward and easy. It took about 15 mins to install. The cover locks on the rails good and has two safety straps just in case. The cover is easy to unlock and fold as it is lightweight and durable. The top of the cover is smooth so it could be wrapped to any colour you would like. The cover sits about as flush to the bed rails as possible. It has a very sleek and clean look which makes the cover stand out. The cover has been on my truck for about 3 days now and we have had a ton of rain. The cover has kept all the rain out of the bed of my truck. It keeps anything in the bed locked away and give you piece of mind it won’t be stolen. This cover still gives you full access to the bed of your truck. If you need to load bigger items such as an Atv. The cover removes very easy by one person. This cover gives the truck a very sleek design like no other cover I’ve ever seen. It is the perfect combination between being durable and lightweight. It is durable enough that you can set things onto the cover with no worry at all. I was always watching things like drinks when I set them on my old cover because it was a soft fold and really could only set things on the support bars. Now with the lomax cover it’s pretty well like a table on the back of the truck. It is super easy to fold. The cover locks can be pulled with one hand and they unlock on each side at the same time. Saves from having to go to each side and unlocking separately. I would highly recommend this cover to everyone. It is the perfect cover. The lomax cover gets a 10/10. I want to thank the people at agri-covers for giving me this opportunity to review the lomax cover. They knocked it out of the ball park with this cover. Go over and check out their site and get a cover of your own. You won’t regret it at all. Last picture is of my truck with the old cover.

      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.

      (Yes, this is really us ordering our truck!)

      Someone ring the bell, today is the day that you can waltz on down to your Chevrolet and/or GMC dealer, sit down with a sales rep, and option out / submit the order for your brand new 2019 Silverado or Sierra. Now, that said, you'll be shooting blind, as GM hasn't let us know yet how much the 2019's are going to cost. In fact, we don't even know how much horsepower the engines will be rated at..... BUT, we can in fact order them. So, GM-Trucks.com did. Here's what we found out. 
       
      What You CAN Order
      As of today, (May 17th, 2018), you can place an order for an LT, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, or High Country for Silverado and only SLT/Denali for Sierra. Crew cabs are up first and are the only cab you can get as of today. Nearly every regular option is available to be ordered but specific trims have a better shot at being produced than unique combinations. 
       
      What You CANNOT Order
      Reports of dealers offering to place orders for diesel engines are floating around on on our 2019 Silverado/Sierra Owners Facebook Group. The facts are, while a dealer can take your money for a deposit, they won't be able to order a new light-duty diesel yet. You also won't be able to order double cab or regular cab trucks.
       
      Be Careful!
      As of today, dealers know exactly how many new trucks they can order and how many of each color they can order. If you're submitting an order, make sure your dealership has the open allocation for both the truck AND the color you want. 
       
      Meet GM-Trucks.com's 2019 Chevrolet Silverado
      In the interest of research and keeping the community informed, we marched on down to the dealer late this morning to talk shop and place an order. We have a lot of plans for our new 2019 that you'll hear about in a few months, so picking out the right trim was a little tougher than we thought.
       
      Although the LT Trail Boss was extremely tempting, we knew we needed the 6.2L, which you can't get on the Trail Boss. So strike that out.  And, while the High Country was right up our alley, we didn't want to get what will likely be the most expensive Silverado ever sold either. That pretty much made us land squarely in the middle of the two and in the end we decided the LTZ trim level was right for our needs. It allows us to get the 6.2L V8 (of which we strangely don't know the output of yet) and GM's all new 10-speed automatic transmission. 
       
      We also wanted to get a truck that was at least as nice as our 2011 GMC Sierra SLT All-Terrain. We love our heated leather seats and Bose audio on our 2011 and our new truck needed to have these options too.  So, with that all in mind... here's how we optioned things out once we sat down to the table. 
      --------------------------------------
      2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD Crew Cab LTZ
      Northsky Blue Metallic Jet BLack Leather Interior Trim 6.2L V8 - L87 / 10-speed transmission - MQB Z71 Off-Road Package  LTZ Preferred Equipment Group - 1LZ LTZ Convenenience Package - PCZ LTZ Convenenience Package II - PCN LTZ Plus Package - PDF Safety Package - PQB Power Up/Down Tailgate - QT6 20-inch Polished Wheels - RD2 Bose Sound System - UQA Premium Nav/Infotainment System - IOT --------------------------------------
      Some of the cool stuff included in these packages
      Heated and ventilated front seats Heated Rear Outboard Seats Two 120-volt outlets (one inside, one in bed) HD Rear Vision Camera Rear Sliding Window Front/Rear Park Assist Rear Cross Traffic Alert / Side Blind Zone Alert  
      We did not get
      Bedliner or rubber floor matts Heads up display or 360-degree camera Any accessories, step bars, or covers. (We have plans for all that stuff!) A sunroof (a weak attempt to save money)  
      Our problem right now is that we don't know how much this truck will cost. We do have a general idea though.  Based on 2018 pricing, we expect the MSRP on our 2019 to land between $54-56k dollars.
       
      All that's left is for the order to be submitted to GM (which the dealer's ordering guy will handle soon) and for GM to accept the order (who knows when?!). Production for our vehicle is expected to take place in late July or early August. Of course, we'll keep everyone in the loop on any updates we get as the process moves along. 
       
      If you want to buy one of the first new Silverado or Sierra, this is the week you'll want to visit your dealer. 
       
      Here's our actual order sheet listing the options we picked out





       
      Shout Out To Our Dealer

      I have to mention we wouldn't have been able to do ANY of this without some serious support from a dealer. Our dealer for this order is Banks Chevrolet in Concord, New Hampshire.
       
      The Sales Manager, Jeremy Chapman, and our Sales Consultant, Jeffrey Lavalley have gone out of their way to answer our detailed questions and work with us to get GM-Trucks.com a sick new project truck. Thank you Banks!
