Edmunds staff writer Travis Langness takes the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 V8 on a trip through the mountains of Wyoming. The new Silverado is longer, taller and wider than before. But thanks to new materials in the body and frame, the Silverado is as much as 450 pounds lighter than the previous model. All of that means more payload and more towing capability, plus a quieter ride on the road.
Q: What's new about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado? A: The Silverado is completely redesigned. The frame and body are made from new materials, it sports a new look, and six new powertrain combinations are available. The interior is redesigned, too, with more space for crew-cab models and lots of new high-tech features.
Q: What are the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado's main competitors? A: American truck rivals include the Ford F-150, the Ram 1500 and the Chevy's twin brother, the GMC Sierra 1500. Other significant competitors include the Nissan Titan and the Toyota Tundra.
Q: How much can the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 tow? A: Depending on how you equip the truck (engine, cab configuration, 4x4 or 4x2, optional towing package, etc.), the Silverado is capable of towing up to 12,600 pounds. That's one of the largest figures in the class.
Q: How much does the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 V8 cost? A: A base trim level, single-cab Silverado starts at around $32,000. Our test truck was a crew-cab Silverado RST with four-wheel drive and the optional 5.3-liter V8. With some stand-alone options, it came to $49,070.
