The all-new Silverado sets the course for the next century of Chevy Trucks with the most functional bed of any full-size truck, weighs up to 450 pounds less for increased performance and offers a broad range of trims and engine/transmission combinations.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will arrive at dealerships in the third quarter of 2018. Eight all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado trucks have rolled into town for the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

The Silverado 1500, Chevrolet's best-selling vehicle, is getting a complete redesign for 2019. There are hidden compartments behind the rear seats and storage underneath the rear seats.

There's even an optional power tailgate that can be operated from a button on the key fob, a button in the cab, or a button on the tailgate itself.

So far Chevy has not disclosed powertrain details on the 2019 Silverado, other than confirming the 3.0-liter Duramax diesel, 5.3-liter V-8 and 6.2-liter V-8 offerings.

"The new Silverado also delivers improved capability and performance". Crew-cab models now have 3 inches more rear-seat legroom, which means that front passengers have 44.5 inches of front legroom, while rear seat passengers get 43.8 inches of legroom.

For the "High Value" customer, there are the Work Truck, Custom, and all-new Custom Trailboss trims.

The Silverado shares a platform with the GMC Sierra and Chevy managers said more information about the updated version of that truck will be released later. "Chevrolet" is stamped across the tailgate.

But most important of all, The World Ends With You -Final Remix- adds a brand new scenario "that gets to the heart of the story". Here are all of the new games that Nintendo announced on Thursday morning: Mario Tennis Aces and SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy .

Chevrolet's "High Volume" truck buyer benefits from two new trims in addition to the Silverado 1500 LT: RST and LT Trailboss.

The 3.0L diesel I-6 and 6.2L gasoline V8 are both paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Passengers will be surrounded by a safety cage made of various steels, while the body is made of aluminum and steel. This is important marketing point given the literal beating Chevrolet has given the F-150's aluminum bed in its advertising, by dropping a load of rocks and a toolbox into one to depict how it can potentially be punctured more easily than steel.

The weight saving extends to the Silverado's fully boxed steel frame which is also 88 pounds (40 kg) lighter than its predecessor despite boasting a 10 percent increase in torsional rigidity. Some models receive a carbon composite second stage rear spring borrowing a little from the Corvette's playbook.

Three different bed lengths will be available, all with more cargo volume.

That's a significant gap that GM needs to close with Ford's - and America's - most popular light truck model.

The 2019 Silverado made its official debut at the Detroit auto show after an early introduction at an event celebrating Chevy Truck's 100th anniversary in November 2017 in Texas.
