Performance and Exterior

With a 5.3-liter V8, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 delivers proper power capable of handling almost any task asked, whether that is climbing steep hills, or towing a significant load. This is a touch less power than that offered by the 5.6L V8 engine of the Nissan Titan, but the Silverado makes up the difference in its general handling and drivability, scoring higher in both categories than its competitor.
The Silverado is available in eight trim levels: Work Truck (WT), Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country, including an optional upgrade package to a 6.2-liter V8, should a driver require additional power.

Few would disagree that the Chevrolet 5.3-liter V8-powered engine excels in performance. In the standard 3.23 axle configuration, the 4WD crew-cab truck delivered a beefy 9,600-pound tow rating, which is a strong performance for the standard axle category. An additional 1,800 pounds come along with the upgraded 3.42 axle ratio package, and with the most premium option, the power can be as high as 12,100 pounds with the 6.2-liter V8.

With an acceleration from 0-60 mph in just seven seconds, the power offered by the Silverado’s V8 is both smooth and strong, with the transmission’s eight available gears providing great low-end torque and a smart shift schedule that helps to keep it in the sweet spot. Design tweaks have been carefully implemented into this model, such as converting the doors, tailgate, and hood to aluminum, rather than steel, to create a lighter, yet more durable vehicle.

The Silverado is both an easy drive and is incredibly responsive. A driver can brake confidently in the Silverado, averaging an execution of a 60 mph panic stop in 133 feet. This was a stronger performance than that of the Titan, which also exhibited strong braking power, but felt softer and less responsive than the Chevrolet.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale in Purcell, Oklahoma has been completely redesigned with drivers in mind. The full-size pickup segment is continuously evolving and Chevrolet has addressed this, offering modern tech and all sorts of upgraded utility to meet the demands of any driver. This truck truly delivers in all aspects of driver demands, from sheer utility and load capacity to family-friendly capabilities such as comfort and roominess.

Interior and Styling

Both vehicles offer a comfortable, quiet ride, which is impressive in a category of vehicle that often lacks these features. Drivers will likely be impressed by the sheer amount of room offered by the Silverado. With wide-swinging front and rear doors, all passengers have easy accessibility when it comes to entering and exiting the vehicle. Well-placed handles aid the process, allowing passengers to feel sturdy and secure when entering and exiting the vehicle. The Silverado has ample room to seat 5 full-size adults and offers significantly more room in the back row than the cramped middle seat of the Nissan Titan. The seats of the Chevy are soft yet supportive, making even the longest of rides feel incredibly comfortable.

The interior of the Chevrolet Silverado has a familiar finish, keeping true to the brand’s image, and appealing to both long-term and new customers alike. The front row seats of the driver and passenger of the Chevrolet have access to power-adjustable seats. The wide range of motion is capable of producing a comfortable, customized fit for drivers of all sizes, and the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel offers a range of adjustments to fit any driver. With various available upgrades, various axle ratios, off-road-oriented tires, larger wheels, tow mirrors, power-retractable side step rails, and a sunroof can all also be made available in the Chevy.

A driver can feel confident with the Chevy’s raised position of the seat, which delivers excellent height for an uncompromised view of the road. The pillar base of the Nissan feels awkward and obstructs the view somewhat. The exterior side mirrors of the Chevrolet are large and respectable, providing confidence to the driver for viewing even some of the more difficult rear viewpoints. In the optional Safety II package, drivers have access to additional safety features including automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, front and rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, further increasing ease-of-use and peace-of-mind.

The Silverado’s interior is sleek and easy on the eyes. The dashboard and center console feel sturdy, matching the rugged and capable image of the truck, and the controls are simple and easy to navigate for any driver.

Technology and Features

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 provides impressive storage capabilities thanks to 60/40-split rear seat bottoms, folding and stowing away to make additional storage space available. The standard bed size of the Chevrolet beats the Nissan’s standard 5.5-foot bed by three inches, making the Chevrolet a better bet for transporting larger loads. The designers of the 2019 Chevy stepped up their game, equipping the truck with 12 tie-downs rated at 500 pounds each. The max payload for the truck rose to an impressive 2,020 pounds thanks to this year’s improved design.

Drivers will be impressed by the slew of available technology options in this year’s Chevrolet Silverado. In the Nissan, the set-up felt rather basic due to its small display, dated graphics, and small buttons, that all seem very early 2000s. The voice-control is not very user-friendly and is difficult to operate, making the feature less beneficial than it could be. In comparison, the Chevy shines here, thanks to the newly designed Chevy infotainment system. The Chevy scores high in the usability rating, thanks to the sharp graphics and sensitive touchscreen buttons, as well as the simple menu structure that makes using the system easy.

High-tech features such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard, allowing almost all drivers the ability to utilize this feature, while the Nissan only makes this feature available to Apple users. With USB and USB-C ports on the dash, a USB port deep in the center console, and another in the rear seat area, it is easy to connect devices from all areas of the truck with Chevy’s design.

All of this comes together for a more modern vehicle in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 compared to the outdated Nissan Titan.
