For anyone who loves trucks, the Chevrolet Silverado is high on the list of greats. In 2019, Chevy added some attractive features and advanced technology to bring buyers. Here’s a look at what this heavy-weight has to offer:

More Engine Options

In 2019, you can buy a Silverado with standard 285 horsepower V6, 355 horsepower V8, 420 horsepower V8, four-cylinder turbocharged with 310 horsepower, or a turbocharged diesel. That makes five engines to choose from.

Added Trailer Technology and Safety Features

If you tow frequently, you can add new features to your Silverado to help in this capacity–a rear trailer camera that lets you view the road from the very back and Hitch Guidance (through the standard rear camera). Both features add a layer of safety for anyone with a caboose.

In addition, a Teen Driver safety system and backup camera come standard with every vehicle. Not to mention, you can upgrade the package to include blind spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, forward collision warning (with auto-emergency braking at low speeds), and lane departure alert.

Better Towing Capacity

Already a favorite for anyone who hauls, the new Silverado can tow up to 12,000 pounds. Add the advanced trailering tech (including theft notification and trailer tire pressure monitoring) and you have a complete package built for total world domination.

Redesigned Interior

Chevy went above and beyond in 2019, revamping the cabin to include an optional upgrade to bucket seating, leather/vinyl/cloth seats, and more legroom and headroom.

High Price

On the downside, the base model Silverado isn’t cheap, especially once you add upgrades.

Stiff Competition

Another major con to buying the Silverado–it has competition in the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500. Both are comparable but have slightly more towing capacity. Also, the F-150 comes with more perks at the base level. Although Silverado upped its game by redesigning the interior, the F-150 offers a sleek, stylish cabin as well.

Bottom Line

The Silverado has some amazing upgrades in 2019 that make this pickup truck a true favorite. On the other hand, automakers like Ford and Ram are perfecting their models, too. In the end, it might boil down to style preference and off-roading (the Silverado outdoes Ford and Ram in this aspect).
