Excelent powertrains, from the new 2.7-liter turbo four up to the 6.2-liter V8. The Silverado is plenty capable, too, with a big bed and plenty of payload and towing. The interior just can't match the competition, especially on upper trim models.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is all-new compared to last year's model — if you're looking at used or leftover 2018s, we have a guide for you right here — and to level with you, it's a bit of a mixed bag. Whether you love the changes, or don't, there's lots to go over: a new engine, a bigger bed, new dimensions, and lots of trim levels to choose from. We have driving impressions, safety information, and comparisons with other full-size pickups below. If you're looking for information about the previous-generation pickup, check out our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review and Buying Guide. What's new for 2019? Almost everything. The truck itself is new, with new sheetmetal and a few new powertrains. The truck is larger: the overall length is up by 1.6 inches, with a 3.9-inch longer wheelbase, making for a bigger and roomier cab. The bed is also larger, and thanks to the use of some aluminum (doors, hood, and tailgate) and high-strength steel, the truck is lighter. If you compare the new and old quad-cab V8 trucks like to like, the 2019 is 450 pounds lighter. The frame is 88 pounds lighter, and still fully boxed, while the cab is similarly lighter. The cargo bed is still steel, and thanks to some clever stamping techniques it's wider internally by seven inches, with taller walls, increasing bed capacity to 63 cubic feet. Towing and payload numbers are important to full-size truck buyers, and the Silverado is essentially mid-pack among the domestics. The Silverado's maximum payload can be found on V6 models — 2,500 pounds — while it'll tow 12,200 pounds if you properly configure a 6.2-liter V8 model. The 2019 F-150 claims a higher maximum tow rating of 13,200 lbs on a properly equipped truck with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, and a max payload of 3,270 pounds on a 4x2 V8 — both beat the Silverado's highest numbers. The Ram 1500 can tow 12,750 pounds and haul 2,300 pounds, when properly equipped — within spitting distance of the Silverado in both cases. What are the engine and transmission options? There are two new engine options on sale right now — a new version of the carryover 5.3-liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management for increased fuel economy, and a 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-four that is available in the LT and RST trims and replaces the old 4.3-liter V6. The V6 is now only available on the WT and Custom trims, aimed at fleet and working buyers. A new turbodiesel inline-six will be available down the road. There's also an available 6.2-liter V8. A carryover version of the 5.3-liter V8, with Active Fuel Management and hooked up to a six-speed automatic, is also available. We have a very thorough overview right here of all the engines and transmissions, and which trims they're available in. Remember that a turbodiesel engine — a 3.0-liter "Duramax" inline-six — has been announced but is not currently on sale, and we haven't yet driven a Silverado with …
