The 2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid is a half-ton pickup truck that will arrive as a completely new model. That includes new hybrid drivetrain, revised exterior and improved interior.
Moreover, Silverado is lighter than before, it offers various trim levels, cab and bed sizes. The ride is smooth and the cabin is quiet. A mild-hybrid eAssist package is the latest addition, along with the tire-pressure monitoring and some other system.
2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid exterior revamp
Chevrolet decides to give an all-new Silverado a complete revamp. The retro appearance is gone and the exterior is looking modern. The shape is still boxy, however, Chevy replaces squared-off cues for more rounded features. That includes fender flares and arching lines around the windows and rear doors. Additionally, straight lines are providing a more distinctive look.
The front grille is looking pretty straight, just like the tailgate and the beltline. The cargo bed is now larger while the crew cab’s box still offers 63 cubic feet of space. A Corner Step bumper system is bigger than on the previous model and the step is more accessible and easier to use. The overall body weight is reduced thanks to more aluminum materials and as a result, the fuel economy is better.
2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid interior look
Just like the exterior, the 2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid will arrive with a new interior. The cabin suffered a complete revamp but there are no significant changes. The dashboard is now available in a two-tone design and the center console is larger. A 7.0-inch infotainment screen is now standard on the base model while the 8.0-inch screen is optional.
Steering wheel gains a new look and it provides a more premium feeling. The controls on the steering wheel are intact on the other hand. A gauge cluster comes with digital gauges, a similar styling cue like in the GMC Sierra model. All of the controls and knobs are placed in a better layout and everything is now easier to use and operate.
2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid engine
What Chevy did in the engine category is quite astonishing. The 2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid comes with up to six engine/transmission combinations. Moreover, the fuel economy is significantly improved, the V8 engines are upgraded as well. On top of that, a diesel unit is in the offer along with the hybrid drivetrain. Depending on the chosen engine, either 8 or 10-speed automatic transmissions are available.
Next to diesel powertrain option, the biggest addition is a mild-hybrid system. This system is available with 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8 engines. It will use an electric motor instead of the alternator and it will receive power from a battery pack. The V6 engine will see a 90 lb-ft of torque increase while the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 will get a boost of 130 lb-ft of twists. The horsepower figures will stay intact.
2019 Chevy Silverado Hybrid price and release date
