The longer, taller, wider, and lighter 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 comes in eight appealing trims, each of which can be configured via different bed lengths and cab styles. Even better, this full-size pickup offers four engine options, beginning with a 4.3-liter V6 that’s worth 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque and a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that churns out 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque. The remaining two power plants - a 5.3-liter V8 (355hp, 383 lb-ft of torque) and a 6.2-liter V8 (420hp, 460 lb-ft of torque) - are the province of this truck’s upper-tier trims.
Transmissions to be demoed at our local Chevy dealer include a six-speed automatic, eight-speed automatic, and ten-speed automatic. These gearboxes pair with either rear-wheel drive (RWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD), the latter of which is perhaps most prominent on the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, which comes standard with various off-road and trailering enhancements.
