GM has taken the veils off the new lineup of 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup trucks. The fourth-generation Chevrolet Silverado was shown at the recent Detroit auto show 2018 and the updates were appreciated by the majority.

The Chevrolet brand name has been also embossed onto the tailgate much in the style of Ram trucks. Based on trim chosen- the amount of exterior chrome plating can vary. There are 8 trim levels to pick from and the list includes new Rally Truck Sport and the LT Trail boss edition. It is quite different from the upcoming 2019 GMC Sierra looks wise.

The bed is made of specially treated steel for better durability. The hood is made mostly of aluminum. Overall, the new truck is 450 pounds lighter than the predecessor.
