GM-Trucks.com is happy to announce the birth of our brand new 2019 Silverado LTZ. The healthy blue baby was born around August 8th or 9th and weighs about 4,900lbs. Baby blue is 231 inches long and has been assigned a VIN number of 8864. He was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Our delivery dealer is also excited for him to arrive via rail and truck but has to wait for baby blue to be invoiced before they know when that will be. Our big guy should be in our loving arms within the next month or so. 

 

The GM-Trucks.com family is so happy to accept this pickup truck into our lives. It has a long life of care and love ahead of it. Many a photo and video will be saved of baby blue's life. 

 

Friends wishing to send congratulations may do so at:

GM-Trucks.com

PO Box 63

Henniker, NH

03242

 

Donations to our mods/accessory fund will be happily accepted to allow baby blue to live a full and extremely powerful life. 

 

But in all seriousness, we'll keep everyone in the loop as we learn more. It won't be long until our 2019 Northsky Blue Metallic LTZ is in our garage.

At least you got to see your color in person before you take delivery of yours.  Contrats!  Have you picked out a name yet?

Weighs 7000#?? I think you're confusing GVWR with curb weight... Curb weight is the weight of the vehicle minus any passengers or cargo. ... It still has all the necessary equipment and fuel but doesn't have any added weight that isn't built into the car. The gross weight refers to the car's total weight when it has added passengers and cargo.

 

 

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Pickup truck
 
Towing capacity: 5,600 to 9,400 lbs
MPG: Up to 18 city / 24 highway
Curb weight: 4,517 to 5,333 lbs

Yup, that's embarrassing. I'll fix it. :lol:

Yeah, I was so nervous! Thankfully it's a wonderful deep blue metallic that looks sweet.  No name yet. We have to take it for a spin first before we know what he wants to be called. :lol:

Nice. I tend to be a blue truck guy, but took a break from crazy upkeep by going silver for a change.

Definitely looking forward to seeing this truck develop. Is it a crew or double cab?

That is a darn nice color... I may consider going away from dark gray on my next truck if that shade is still available when it's time for a new truck in another 3-4 years..

      Found a lovely deal for a chevy 2016 - LT Z71 - V5.3
      This is my first truck and looking to lift it. found a good price for Rough Country lift kit - 3.5 inch
       
       
               
       
      BILSTEIN 5100: https://psp.ae/product/bilstein-performance-shocks-15/
      Rough Country KIT: https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-suspension-lift-kit-275-8.html
       
      Many people been complaining about how cheap the rough country shocks are, so I was thinking is it possible to install Bilstein 5100 shocks kit on this kit? or would they not fit into these?  
      This way I would lift the truck + level it + have some what better shocks
      I thought about selling the Rough Country shocks instead
       
      Your thought and experience are much appreciated!

      OnStar sucks!!! It's been 2 weeks since I've taken delivery of my truck OnStar still hasn't been able to signup my truck and now I'm halfway through my "super generous" month of a working app. I've called them 4 different times they waist about a half hour of my time then the level 2 person tells me they put in a ticket and they'll call me when it's fixed. Onstar has yet to call me back once! Absolutely unacceptable!!! Especially when you only get one month of service VS the 5 years I got with my last truck. Why am I still buying GM?
