2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Spied Again, News
In the upcoming period General Motors is expected to present to the public around the world two models of 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. These two pickup trucks will have a new design that will make these two models fresher and more modern.
The 2019 Silverado on the front has jewel-like headlights, while 2019 Sierra on the bottom of the casing, on the upper and outer edges has a LED strip. This kind of lighting gives these models a very modern, luxurious and powerful look.
These new models have been tested together with Ford F-150 Platinum, which is the most important available trim on the model.
According to Auto data Corp, sales of the 2018 Silverado model were lower than the 2017 model. Also, Serra’s sales also fell substantially, even by 7.6 percent.
There is no official information yet, but it is expected that the latest 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra will break new ground with GM. The automaker has the ability to reveal the aluminum structure to the audience, and in this way increase fuel efficiency and reduce weight. In June of this year, spy photographs were made, thanks to which we can see that the prototype Silverado 1500 is working on diesel fuel.
It should be noted that GMC Sierra is expected to introduce a 10-degree automatic change. This gearbox was developed with Ford.
As already mentioned, these two models are made on a full platform. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra also have the same dimensions as the drive and weight. These two models share much in common. They are very similar, although of course there are some differences.
The Chevy Silverado is aimed at a wider market and is cheaper than the GMC Sierra. While Sierra is a little more luxurious and more modern vehicle, it is intended for professionals.
The biggest differences are observed in the design. GMC has much more sales of Chevrolet trucks and SUVs compared to the GMC. This is perhaps because the models are more affordable and cheaper.
These two models under the hood hide virtually the same power units. They are very high by the EPA when it comes to fuel economy.
The first version of the engine is V6. The fuel economy of this type of engine is 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The second version of the engine is the V8, which has a volume of 5.3-liters. The fuel economy of this engine version is 16 mpg in city and 23 on the highway. Finally, the third type of engine is 6.6-liters. This version of the engine has a fuel economy of 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
These two models represent cousins within General Motors, because they share a lot of similar characteristics. But they sell two different brands and are designed for different customers. For those who like luxury (leather seats, modern equipment, more complex dashboards) GMC will attract more attention. The 2019 Chevy Silverado is a more standard, classic pickup truck model. But in addition, it is quite certain that when driving these two models on the highway you would not notice any big difference.
Exact dates on the date of release as well as the price of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra models are still not available.
