Here’s a first look at the ’19 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in a regular cab “work truck” configuration. Up until now we’ve only seen crew and super crew variants. The Silverado regular cab is equipped with an 8-ft. bed.
GM is still expected to make some radical changes to its fullsize pickups in the form of a stronger aluminum-intensive construction (although not on the bed) in a bid to shed weight and improve efficiency, following the Ford F-150.
The new Sierra and Silverado will continue with refinements on the current V8 engines, but are also expected to get a diesel (as confirmed in earlier spyshots) and a mild-hybrid option on the half-ton models. Currently, the Duramax diesel comes only on heavy-duty trucks. A turbocharged V6 is also likely to join the lineup. A 10-speed automatic first seen in the Camaro ZL1 will find its way into at least some trucks at launch.
Expect to see the new Silverado and Sierra trucks in late ’18 as ’19 models.
