2019 CHEVY SILVERADO 1500 REVIEW


  

If you're looking for capability in your next ride through the Warrington, Doylestown, and Chalfont areas, nothing works quite like a pickup truck. Other vehicles can't even begin to compete with their payload and towing capacities. With trucks rising in popularity, however, you need to make sure the one you get is most suitable for your needs.

One of the best options on the market today is the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500  Continuing a legacy of reliable pickups, the new Silverado is packed full of exciting features alongside the reliable performance and capability you've come to expect from Chevy. Learn whether this truck is right for you in our comprehensive 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 review. 

SILVERADO CAPABILITY

The first thing most truck drivers want to know about a prospective pickup is its capability. With the new Silverado, you won't be disappointed. When properly equipped, this truck is capable of towing an incredible 12,200 pounds. While that's plenty impressive, even Silverado models equipped with the standard engine can still tow up to 7,200 pounds.

If you're more interested in payload capacity, the Silverado's can be pushed all the way to 2,500 pounds when properly equipped. This is a trade-off for towing capacity, however, as you'll only be able to get 8,000 pounds of towing capacity with that setup. To put it in perspective, the 12,200-pound towing capacity comes with a 2,100-pound payload capacity.

SILVERADO ENGINE OPTIONS

Versatility has always been a part of the 2019 Silverado's features, and this new model is no different. You'll be able to choose between three distinct engine options to suit your needs the best. The standard engine is a 2.7-liter turbo complete with active fuel management. It gets 310 horsepower with 348 lb-ft of torque and even comes with auto stop/start technology.

If you're looking to boost your power a bit more, you'll be better suited with one of the V8 engines. The 5.3-liter engine comes with 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, but the 6.2-liter pushes it even further with its 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. With 10-speed automatic transmission, this powerful engine offers the premium Silverado driving experience. 

SILVERADO TECHNOLOGY

A new pickup truck wouldn't be complete without some of the latest in automotive technology. While you'll find plenty of exciting infotainment features inside the cabin, the Silverado truly shines when it comes to towing technology. The advanced trailering package features a trailering app complete with theft alert and tire pressure monitoring for the tires on your trailer. Automatic electric parking brake assist is an option as well, which helps you maintain control.

While monitoring systems are certainly handy, it's nice to be able to see your trailer directly, so you know exactly what's going on at all times. With the trailering camera package, your trailer will always be in view. This package comes complete with side view cameras as well as a hitch view camera.
