We have seen several prototypes of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, yet never the interior styling. Well, never until today, because the guys from trucktrend.com made several shots of what appears to belong to the new generation Silverado 1500. Even though there is still plenty of time until the official arrival, the interior seems to be ready. If you ask us, the dash looks good, but we have to be frankly to say that we expected more from the interior redesign.
As you can see, the truck features a new four-spoke steering wheel. Both upper spokes sports scroll-wheels, which enables quick passing through menu options and entertainment system. There are also paddle rockers right behind the spokes. This is the usual configuration for audio and volume adjustments.
The center stack appears to have the latest generation of MyLink, which is really great. Below, the pickup truck features a few USB ports, 110V AC power, and a 12V DC outlet. There is also the OnStar call button, as well as an integrated HomeLink transmitter that includes three buttons. Judging by the spy shots, the car manufacturer plans to keep the column shifter, so the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will definitely stay the only pickup with that options. All others are using either console or dial shifters.
The new exterior includes a totally redesigned front end. There are multiple reflectors and full LED headlights, as well as a lowered and more massive front bumper. The grille is still hidden beneath the camouflage, yet we are sure it’s going to receive a totally new design.
Under the Hood
We announced earlier that the new generation Silverado 1500 might get a diesel option under the hood. Judging by the latest reports, this will actually happen. The amazing pickup truck will most probably use a 3.0-liter turbodiesel that’s capable of producing around 250 hp and 400 pound-feet of twist. However, that’s won’t be the only option under the hood of the completely redesigned 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500. No, the pickup will use the current 4.3-liter mill 6.2-liter options, which will be boosted a little bit.
We were pretty sure that the next-generation Silverado 1500 won’t make its debut before 2017 Los Angeles auto show, but the latest rumors suggest it might be introduced earlier in September at State Fair of Texas.
