Quick Facts to Know: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

General Motors North America president Alan Batey speaks as he unveils the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado during the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit Michigan on Saturday

A new inline-6 turbodiesel will be offered in the Silverado, which Chevrolet will brand Duramax.

Designers and engineers paid particular attention to aerodynamics for better fuel economy, GM said. While the 2019 Silverado obviously has a new look inside and out, some of the bigger updates are that the truck now weighs up to 450 pounds less than its predecessor and it debuts a more functional bed.

Look out Ford truckers!

The Silverado is 1.6 inches (41 mm) longer than its predecessor and rides on a wheelbase that has grown by up to 3.9 inches (100 mm). The driver sits more than an inch higher, as are the hood and roofline. The sensors that were once integrated into the taillamps have been repositioned to the rear bumper so that there are no dead spots in the 2019 Silverado's lamps. Small spoilers on the roof and tailgate optimize airflow.

There's a fully boxed steel frame, which is now 88 pounds lighter than in the old truck, despite offering 10-percent greater torsional rigidity. The live-axle rear suspension also gets new carbon-composite second-stage springs on LT models that save about 12 pounds per side over the steel springs they replace.

As for the bed, there Chevrolet has some fighting talk for Ford.

The truck bed is nearly 7 inches wider than the previous model and the short box is 63 cubic feet.

The steel bed is now a stronger grade of steel alloy, for extra strength without adding weight.

The truck also has 21 fixed and moveable tie-down points to secure cargo, and a power tailgate is available. 120V AC outlets are optional.

The Silverado 1500, Chevrolet's best-selling vehicle, is getting a complete redesign for 2019. In all, there will be six different engine and transmission combinations. The company said it will announce even more improvements for the 2019 model later this year. The latter is a tough-looking brute with blacked-out grille, two-inch suspension lift and Z71 off-road package including locking rear differential, skid plates and all-terrain tires.

What remains to be seen is how much power the new 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine can actually deliver against Ford's Power Stroke. Chevrolet said the 5.3-liter V-8 and 6.2-liter engines will be offered in the Silverado and would include cylinder shutdown technology that could deactivate up to seven of the truck's eight cylinders. The Silverado will couple the 10-speed with its 6.2-liter V8 and diesel. Inside, there'll be Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging for your smartphone, and the option of 4G LTE with a WiFi hotspot.
