All-new Chevrolet Silverado debuts in LT Trailboss trim

This 2017, Chevrolet is celebrating 100 years of their pickup truck heritage. To commemorate this milestone, the Detroit based automaker has given the all-new 2019 Silverado pick-up truck an early preview ahead of its full reveal at the upcoming 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

The upcoming Silverado will be offered in multiple variants. For now, Chevrolet has only revealed the LT Trailboss trim, a new trim level that does away with most of the exterior chrome details. Instead most of the trim and even the wheels have been finished in flat black to give it a more rugged look. To live up to it's trim name, the Trailboss version also comes with extra off-road equipment and a two-inch lift from the factory.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado gets early reveal ahead of global debut

Despite being in off-road trim, it does give us a look at what the new Silverado looks like. There is more modern styling, particularly at the front fascia which has mostly been redesigned. The headlight and grill now appear more flowing and are less block-like compared to the outgoing model. At the rear, there is a new diffuser with dual exhaust tips. Also, the word Chevrolet is now stamped instead of just the Chevy bow tie on the tailgate.

Apart from the new look, the upcoming Silverado is said to also be more capable. New higher-grade alloys have been used in construction to make it stronger and lighter than the outgoing model. At the moment, Chevrolet has yet to release any official figures or engine options of the 2019 Silverado. It is expected that full details will be revealed in Detroit once the Silverado makes its global debut along with the rest of the variants.
