By today’s standards, the current Silverado genes can not be considered long thanks to the fact that this product was introduced not so long in 2014. The only truck that lacked this was a touch of modern times. The architecture is built quite old, and needs some improvement. This will happen in 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. According to some sources, could come earlier in 2018 as 2019 MY, but this has not been officially confirmed.
This new model can benefit from the latest technology available to Chevy and from the lightweight materials used to build the chassis. The main focus can be switching from steel to aluminum.
Silverado Ford F-150 main rivals are the best-selling trucks in the US market, but this does not mean that the Chevy trucks do not sell well. Together with his more expensive brother, GMC Sierra, brings a lot of money to a Detroit-based company. But the fact that the vehicle is starting to show signs of old age in terms of technology and overall feel that pickup pickup has lowered their sales while at the same time Ford’s hard worker took a bigger market share.
This is another reason why they feel that the time is right to modernize a Silverado truck. An update in 2018 Chevrolet Silverado (2019 MY) will be a guide and will largely be based on truck weight reduction. Currently the Silverado gene is already the lightest vehicle in its class, yet it is made entirely of steel.
The new model will use more aluminum parts in order to lose more weight and at the same time improve efficiency. Efficiency is important, but there is one thing Chevy holds close to his heart. We certainly talked about their full steel beds. This pickup section will not change because of its use, not only for the job but also in the marketing war against Ford.
As far as the platform is concerned, there will be some modifications. The frame will be all-new, but the standard body and frame will remain together with the rear axles alive. The rear-wheel drive will be present as standard while all-wheel and four-wheel drive will be optional.
When it comes to powertrain, you will have two basic options to choose from and one premium. The first is a unit that is already used on this truck, and it is a 4.3 liter V-6. For 2018 Chevrolet Silverado this unit has just been updated. The second variant is a four-cylinder turbocharged in charge of improving Silverado fuel efficiency.
Regardless of which unit you buy, you will only have one transmission option, and that is an eight-speed automatic gearbox. For the Silverado 1500, you will set the V8 small V8 block as usual. The transmissions available with this one will be eight speed acceleration or ten speed automatic. Later one is the latest product cooperation Ford / GM.
Release Date and Price of Chevrolet Silverado 2018
The reason why we mentioned that this model may come in 2019 because I am most likely Chevrolet will not be able to finish Silverado during this year. There is also an option that they will not force truckers during this year. This led us to conclude that the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado (cited as Silverado 2018 at the beginning of the article) will be presented at the 2018 North American Auto Show in Detroit. It makes more sense if you know that Ford is showing a new F-150 this year at NAIAS.
Competition between the two is very tight, so the largest city of Michigan is because the location of the introduction of hard work Chevy seems a reasonable choice. As far as prices apply, it will vary from $ 28,800 for the entry model and all up to $ 60,000 for the overcrowded High Country trim. If you believe it.
The main competitors for this model in the highly hostile truck segment have been mentioned Ford F-150, GMC Sierra 1500, Nissan Titan, RAM 1500, and Toyota Tundra.
Silverado has now been re-released in 2012. Since then it has not changed much. While remaining one of the better sales trucks in the US, GM will soon release a new version. In fact, all new 2019 versions have been spotted wearing heavy camouflage, and seem to be well-prepared to produce.
Not long ago the truck has been spied again but this time a lot of detail is revealed mostly with the interior update of Chevrolet Silverado 2018. It shows most of the dashboard to be installed on the production model, and this gives us a good idea of what we can expect from the higher end version.
Interior Design Chevrolet Silverado 2018
Although this is a new model, GM is quite obviously trying its best to offer an evolutionary road to the truck cabin. The interior is quite clear from GM products, but even so, it still has its own uniqueness. The middle stack offers a cleaner design than its predecessor but has a more upright and unexpected design. At the top of the central pile, there’s a great GM infotainment system that seems to have a screen larger than 8 inches.
On either side, there is a central HVAC vent. Just below the screen, there is a set of keys to provide shortcuts for infotainment units as well as for climate control, both of which can be accessed through the interface.
Below this button there is a set of USB plugs, probably intended as charging ports, 110V outlet and also the usual 12V DC connector. The material looks better than before with most of the central pile covered by a softer material. The steering wheel is roughly the same as the current GM crossover that may be equipped with buttons for shipping controls as well as shortcuts for infotainment units. Unfortunately, the rest of the cabin is mostly closed, but it looks like the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado (2019 MY) interior update is quite large.
All New Designs, Not Just Inside
It looks like the new generation of Silverado offers a new high strength steel chassis. Although unofficial, some suggest this less disturbing than the previous one that could free up some interior space. It’s not obvious from the spy shots, but the truck would have been very nice with an extra leg room and sitting room for the back seat.
