The ’19 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was caught showing off a less-rugged look. This prototype depicts a new design language, which features curves and sweeping lines—something never seen before on a Silverado.
GM is expected to make some radical changes to its fullsize pickups in the form of an aluminum-intensive construction to shed weight and improve efficiency, following the Ford F-150’s similar efforts. The company is said to be working on making stronger aluminum and learning from Ford’s implementation of aluminum.
A turbocharged V6 option is also said to be offered with the new generation of GM trucks, as is a diesel V6 (confirmed). The 10-speed automatic already seen in the Camaro ZL1 should replace the current eight-speed unit in many, if not all, versions of the Silverado.
The Silverado should be revealed next year, with an on-sale date late in 2018.
