SURPRISE: 2019 Silverado unveiled in Texas during 100 year celebration


Recommended Posts

Maybe someone will come up with a good delete package for the Chevrolet on the back tailgate.   We are not getting paid to advertise for them, so we don't need to have that crap on there.

 Those black round things on all four corners look like wheels & tires that are found on Ford, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan trucks. Damn, GM must have copied them too.... :sigh:


There is a little more info at http://www.chevrolet.com/upcoming-vehicles/all-new-2019-silverado


I think the truck looks pretty cool & impressed that GM rolled out an off road version first. While I have zero interest in off road set ups, a good many do & this is a departure from how GM did things in the past. :thumbs:

I don't like it at all.  I had the same thoughts as everyone.  Front end looks like a ford, and the back like a toyota.  I do not like.

Same here. Although the tail lights look like heavy duty fords. Tailgate like a tundra, and side view like a tundra. Dual exhausts like a dodge. I'm not digging the look at all.

LOL don’t worry the bow tie on the back of your current truck or the Nike logo on your shoes or the north face on your jacket or the Starbucks on your coffe will do plenty of advertising anyway.

Usually I'm the guy that doesn't like a vehicle when it's first introduced.  First impressions of this truck I like though.  I realize this is a lifted version and the standard truck may be different, but some very positive things I see.  


Looks like the chin spoiler has been shortened and approach angles will be much improved over the current truck.  The door mounted mirrors, while different, will provide much better visibility and cut down on the big old blind spot trucks have had in the A-pillar area.  Even though it's blacked out, look like the bumper is steel all the way across.  No plastic bumper end caps ala GMT800.  Also, even though I'm a Chevy purist, square wheel wells and all, this particular truck will probably allow the mod happy folks the chance to go even bigger with their tire wheel sizes; not my thing, but if it moves the metal GM is happy to oblige. 


I'm doing my darndest to see this truck in LTZ trim with chrome, but I think it was smart to introduce it before Christmas, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. there.....in TEXAS.  Also think it was smart, and this is a middle aged man saying this, for it's first showing to be in the youth inspired off road trim, blacked out, lifted, etc.  (Wait, did I just complement Chevy marketing?)  They'll sell bunches of these things.


Can't wait to hear about all the goodies under the skin and, for that matter, a little more info on the skin itself.  What's steel?  What's aluminum?

I thought the squarish wheel wells on the current  models were to help increase gas mileage - that's what I was told anyway. Guess they didn't help too much as they're gone in the pictures - well not entirely, as the pictures show a kind of combo of square and of round design.

I do like the back (tailgate, exhaust, and rear cab light) but don’t like the curved body lines on side or mirror on door, or front end (looks like it was in a wreck and a huge gap where front fender/grill/bumper meet) but this may be an extra wide fender edition since it is a trail boss. And I still need to see one in person and hope the GMC looks better.

Hard to tell what the LT/LTZ trims will look like from this picture.

But now we know what it looks like overall.

I suspect with chrome or color matched grills, I will like it more.

I don't like the Trail Boss trim, but I don't like the current trucks with blacked out trim either.


It will grow on me.  2014's did as well.

Looks mean! I liked it right away and it looks to sit a little higher than the last few platforms. Which is a great move in my book.. And if it doesn't sit any higher it looks to have more fender clearance for bigger meats. I see the ford styling cues but it doesn't bother me.

Every new Gm redesign since 2003 I have alway disliked the chevy for awhile. It usually takes year or 2 to grow on me.  On the other hand I have always liked the GMC from the start.  I just hope they offer the off-road version on the GMC with SLT trim.

      Hey I'm new here and this is my first time ever coming across this problem. I'm working on my 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 because one day coming home from work I couldn't shift back into Park. I replaced the shifter table from the steering column all the way down underneath the truck to the transmission lever. Everything is that it should be I've adjusted the shifter table. I'm able to put the transmission into park manually whenever somebody is in the driver seat pressing down on the brake pedal. I checked the shifter interlock solenoid in the steering column and nothing's hanging everything looks like it's supposed to. And I'm only able to shift out of park into reverse neutral drive D3 and D2. I have no D1 and when I try to sit back in the park the steering column lever goes all the way up into the park position like it's supposed to but the transmission itself won't engage into park and stays in reverse. My next step is to replace the shifter interlock solenoid. I wanted to post this and see if anybody could give me any help in case that wasn't it before I get into that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

       I am new to towing with my 2020 Silverado. She is outfitted with the 3.0 Duramax. We just purchased a 2018 Travel Trailer (5700 lbs). I have towed with my past trucks but none of them had the settings (trailer mode, + - on the gear selector) or the ability to have a camera system that essentially gives you a view behind the trailer you are towing. 
       Any chance anyone can share some pointers/wisdom on the best way to tow, what to do, look out for and even using the camera system (which I have yet to purchase)? Any help/input would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks, Dennis

      Hello, I’m thinking about putting a six inch lift from superlift on my 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4wd, extended cab. My question today is what would be the recommended wheel size (both tire and rim) for this setup and I’d like it to preferably stick out on the side a bit but it’s not needed. I know many run 35” but again I’m not sure.

      Hello, looking to upgrade my rancho stock shocks to bilstein 5100 shocks but would like to level the front end. Could anyone please tell me which ones I  need to do so? Is there a certain series other than just the 5100? Also what would be the best place to purchase as far as best price.
      I have 2016 chevy silverado z71.
      Thanks for any info!!

          First I’d like to say that I’m new here and not sure if I’m in the correct place to be asking this or not, but I am in need of serious help with this engine...
      The truck is a 1999 LS silverado 1500 with a 5.3L vortec v8 lm7 in it. 265K miles.
      When I first got the truck this wasn’t an issue it just progressively got worse and worse until it just did it fully 24/7.
      I know this is a very common issue with these engines, but the symptoms I’ve been having are not the same as what Ive been seeing other people having.
      The truck started having a low oil pressure problem, where it would be fine when cold full around 25-30 psi, then as it warmed up / as I drove it, the pressure would slowly drop until 0psi, sometimes this wouldn’t happen till after driving 50+ miles, sometimes it would happen in 10 miles. Now after replacing the pump it does it in literally 1 mile. After it would drop to 0psi the lifter chatter/tap/knock (whatever you want to call it) would finally start up. I would stop the truck kill the engine then restart it. Most of the time after id restart the engine, the pressure would rebuild back up (lifter tap would go away) and I’d go for a mile or two, and then the whole process would just repeat itself. 
      Make a long story a bit shorter... 
      I ended up replacing the oil pump, with a mellings 295 pump, cleaned out as much gunk as I could, got the oil pan nice and squeaky clean... The truck did fine for a couple hundred miles, had really good oil pressure. it did lose all oil pressure entirely on my first test drive but it never had a lifter tap or made any noise when that happened I just pulled over killed it, started it back up and bam it had normal oil pressure.... After that happened, the truck did fine for a couple hundred miles, then out of nowhere it would just randomly start ticking even when it had OK oil pressure 15-25 psi.
      Prior to replacing the pump when the engine was cold it wouldn’t even build up oil pressure right after starting, usually took like 10 seconds + of it running for it too build pressure. And it would only build up to about 25psi and it stayed there even when warm. Now after the oil pump replacement, when the engine is cold the oil pressure will build immediately and be at around 60 psi, then as it warms up it slowly drops to 40, I’ll get out onto the road and as I barely make my way down the road, it slowly drops until it gets down towards 5-10psi and then the lifter tap will start up, doesn’t usually drop fully down to 0 like it did prior to the oil pump replacement. It usually atleast has a couple psi, but that ain’t enough obviously lol cause it’s ticking.
      When it does this, I have no choice but to pull over, kill the engine, start it back up, and it builds back a little bit of pressure. But it still has the lifter tap it doesn’t go away like it would before “sometimes”.... And it’s bad, I can definitely feel a power loss, also can notice a change in the way the engine sounds other than ticking, like a ****** in the timing or something? I know it’s NOT good and the ticking means there’s no oil getting to the head, so please save the lecture, please...
       I’m just at a loss as to why this would still be happening after replacing the pump? The pump doesn’t do what it did before I replaced it, which was, it would fail to build pressure after starting the truck when cold, that’s what made me think the pump was failing so I replaced it, and the new pump DID fix that issue... lol but that’s it... so I know it can’t be the pump right? I mean it’s literally brand new... I also tried to make sure the o ring wasn’t pinched when re-installing the pump... 
      I really just need some good insight on this issue from someone that knows these engines well, this is killing me! This is my only vehicle I need to get this figured out ASAP. I did all the work myself, 23 year old guy, grew up working on bikes then transferred over into cars/trucks, not an expert by any means but I’m no dummy that’s forsure hahahah. Any help is appreciated!
      & The truck is a great truck, it’s an all around clean truck, the last owner definitely took care of it, so it’s not like it’s a big ass pos. Well kinda I guess lol..
