— Chevy will reveal complete details in a few weeks at the Detroit Auto Show. Right now, we have no specs, powertrain figures or pricing information. Chevy says there will be an "expanded range of models, more engine/transmission combinations and more technology and convenience features." Sounds good.
— The appearance: Chevy dramatically restyled the truck for '19. It's a more complex look, with creases and angles. The grille seems bolder and more upright and the headlights look slimmer. In back are vertical taillights and "Chevrolet" written across the tailgate.
— Chevy choppered the LT Trail Boss model into its event in Dallas, and it's an off-road version fitted with a two-inch lift kit and Z71 suspension. Nice.
— The bed is roll-formed, high strength steel. Ram is expected to stick with steel for the new Ram — also set to be revealed at the Detroit show. Ford has doubled-down on aluminum parts of the F-150. We have heard Chevy will use carbon fiber for the beds of some versions of the Silverado. Detroit truck tactics are getting even more interesting.
— History: Chevy is channeling its rich truck history as it launches the 2019 Silverado, referencing 1960s C/K models, among others. Judging from these images, the truck isn't retro, but like the recently debuted 2018 Jeep Wrangler, expect subtle features that play to the loyal Chevy base.
