2019 Chevrolet Silverado coming to the Detroit Auto Show

Xmas has arrived early for GM full-size truck lovers all over North America! Well, if we’re honest, we’re pretty stoked about what the images of the new Silverado are divulging.

Specific details about the new pickup are scarce but we can confirm that the truck (trucks if we include the GMC Sierra) are all new, from the ground up. This is quite a turnaround for GM as the current 3rd generation Silverado is only four model years old. More than anything, this demonstrates the lengths at which OEMs will go to snag a larger portion of the incredibly lucrative full-size truck segments.

The first sighting of the new truck was at the Chevy Truck centennial event in Fort Worth, Texas. The revealed trim was that of the LT Trailboss which is meant to be the badass and looker of the new line-up. It features the off-road equipment of the Z71 package as well as a two-inch suspension lift.

By all accounts, the Trailboss looks the part of the aggressive, attitude-laden truck. The overall design seems inspired by the well-liked Canyon/Colorado duo but with distinctive visual cues such as the complex front fascia, sharp character lines, round wheel-wells and stylish tailgate.

The raised ride-height, chunky Goodyear all-terrain tires and sharp approach and departure angles of the Trailboss tell a tale of serious off-road abilities. What we don’t is what will be motivating such a truck.

Powertrain specifics and other bit of information are likely to come to light in the next few weeks. In the meantime, and especially if you’re a full-size pickup fan, know that we expect to see the next generation RAM 1500 pickup at the NAIAS as well. Look for information here as we’ll publish it when we get it.
