Quick Facts to Know: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

GM President Dan Amman expects 2018 to be a virtual repeat of 2017 financially meaning big profits

Chevrolet introduced the latest model of best-selling Silverado pickup truck Saturday evening, January 13 to kick off the North American International Auto Show from Detroit's Eastern Market.

A new stamping technique allowed GM to carve out an additional 6.75 inches of cargo width in the bed floor of the 2019 Silverado compared with the outgoing model.

The truck also has 21 fixed and movable tie-down points to secure cargo, and a power tailgate is available. On an annual basis, Ford's F-Series sold almost 900,000 units in 2017, compared to about 586,000 units of the Chevy Silverado from GM.

"The working end of every pickup is the bed".

There's no denying how important the Silverado is to Chevrolet.

More than 10,000 employees have worked on the new truck, the company said.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is redesigned to improve aerodynamics.

"Day or night, you'll recognize this new Silverado", Simcoe said. GM's oil-burner, made in-house, debuts in the Silverado. "But some of our competition has already given their numbers on their new diesel and I am really confident that we will have the best performing diesel in this segment".

The Chevy Silverado is scheduled to be launched at the Detroit Auto Show this weekend. That hasn't happened. Indeed, Chevy skewered its rival with "real people" commercials showing a dropped toolbox puncturing the bed of the F-150. The Silverado can run on one cylinder if there isn't demand for more get-up-and-go from the small-block engine.

Teddy Bridgewater was originally the quarterback having led the Vikings to the Divisional round of the playoffs in 2015. Current starter Case Keenum has been highly efficient in place of Bradford since taking over in September.

The fourth-generation of Chevy's number one truck gets a bolder look, new platform, more tech-but not enough to scare the old timers-and several powertrain options. Despite this, the truck's weight has been cut by up to 450 pounds (204 kg) due to the use of lightweight materials such as aluminum. In addition to its aluminum diet, Ford has committed to a turbocharged V-6 strategy to save fuel while increasing torque.

Under the hood the 2019 Silverado will be available with six engine/ transmission combinations, which includes new 5.3L and 6.2L V8 engines. "Our V-8 is an iconic engine for us, and we have made it even better".

Eight different variants will be available including the new Silverado LT Trailboss. The Custom Trailboss adds off-road friendly features such as a two-inch suspension lift and Z71 Road Package, putting it right at the cusp of the "High Volume" segment.

"Truck customers told us they want the flawless truck for them and not a "one size fits most" truck", said GM design boss Mike Simcoe.

Analysts and company executives say the Silverado and the similar GMC Sierra are among the highest-profit models for the company, generating a significant share of its $9 billion in North American pretax earnings for the first nine months of 2017.

The Silverado is the second-best selling vehicle in the USA and is outsold only by Ford's F-Series pickups.

The Silverado features the first opening and closing power tailgate.

All engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission that General Motors developed in tandem with Ford.

The truck will undergo 7 million miles of testing before production begins at the Fort Wayne Assembly Plant. It arrives on dealer's lots this fall.
