Spied! 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Winter Testing

  Spied! 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Winter Testing Dual-Exit Exhaust, LED Lighting Among Exterior DetailsLate last month, we brought you spyshots of what is believed to be the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 testing. The wrapping and cladding was designed to give the onlooker the impression that the truck was a Ford F-150. The beltline cut-down on the camouflage wrap is a signature feature of the F-Series. However, close proximity to General Motors facilities and other vehicles leads us to believe we’re looking at the next-generation Silverado. Here, we see the truck winter testing.

Lately, we’ve been getting a lot of photos of the next-generation fullsize trucks from General Motors. While GM is trying to fake us out with a fake oval in a grille and cut-down window cladding to mimic the F-150, a closer inspection reveals trademark GM cues, like GMC’s six-sided grille and LED accent lighting and the dual rectangular exhaust outlets we’ve seen on other recent spyshots.

GM’s Next-Gen Hauler Warming Up for its Big DebutThe other giveaway was the rectangular dual exhaust tips, another feature we noted on past spyshots of GM’s new 1/2-tons. What we know for sure so far is that the new trucks will have a leaf-spring rear suspension and a 10-speed automatic, at least on the higher trim levels. GM’s 8L90E eight-speed automatic will likely serve as the base transmission on lower-trim models, at least initially.

Sources say GM may be increasing the aluminum content on the truck, however we believe it will still employ a mixed-metals approach rather than Ford’s all-aluminum construction. The bed may remain steel, as GM has made a big deal of this in its recent ad campaign against the F-150 and one that’s not likely to be easily or quickly forgotten.

Beyond the mixed-metal construction and extensive use of LED lighting, little is definitively known about the new GM 1/2-tons, but we expect the usual incremental improvements in frame strength, fuel economy, towing and payload capacity, as well as new comfort and convenience features and electronics. Expect auto stop-start to migrate to the trucks, possibly in conjunction with a mild-hybrid system. Although we have no hard evidence, we believe the 2019 1/2-tons may offer an optional six-cylinder turbodiesel engine, to counter offerings from Ram and now Ford. We expect to see the full production version of the new trucks at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

Different Exhaust Tip Design Shows Different Trim, Possible DieselOne interesting change noted on this particular group of mules compared to previous spy shots is the exhaust tips. Most of the models we’ve seen up until this point have had rectangular dual rear outlets. These tips are round. We did not get close enough to see if they were Venturi tips or not, which would indicate a diesel engine. Considering how aggressively GM is promoting diesels in its other models—such as the Chevrolet Colorado, Cruze, and Equinox, as well as the GMC Terrain—we feel the likelihood of a V-6 diesel in the next-gen Silverado and Sierra 1500 is practically a given.
