Introducing the All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

With over 100 years of experience and know-how to back them up, Chevy has poured all of that knowledge into the brand new 2019 Silverado. You’ll get a truck that’s bigger, faster, stronger, and yes, lighter than ever before. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado for sale in Purcell, OK has dozens of options to choose from to make sure you’re getting the capability you want in a truck you’ll love for years to come.

Powertrain

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale now is a rear-wheel drive, long bed pickup truck built to work. The optional 5.3-liter V8 is paired with either an eight-speed automatic partnered with GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management system making it a dream to drive or the six-speed automatic with a fuel management system that saves gas when driving under light conditions by shutting down four cylinders.

Moving up to the LTZ and High Country models will net you a 6.2-liter V8 for extra power. Acceleration is smooth and swift with plenty of torque, and the smart shift transmission will easily pull you up those hills.

The Z71 offers an off-road package which provides extra lift in the suspension, lockable rear differential, and aggressive, trail-gripping tires.

The Silverado maintains complete control on the road, whether with the weight of a full bed or when it’s empty. Towing capacity starts at 7,600 pounds with the standard 4.3-liter V6 engine, rises to 11,100 pounds when running with the 5.3-liter V8, and tops out at a towing capacity of up to 12,500 pounds with the 6.2-liter V8.

Trims

This brawny workhorse looks and acts like a real beast on the road and off. The 2019 Silverado offers eight different trim levels, expanded from six last year, ranging from Work Truck to Trail Boss, so there’s sure to be one that fits your needs.

The basic Work Truck model has standard black trim, but as you move up the 2019 Chevrolet 1500 price levels, color trim is added. Move into the high end of the Silverado models and you’ve got plenty of chrome. The High Country offers exclusive elements like a two-tone bronze and chrome finish, HID headlamps, aluminum wheels, and a power up/down tailgate. The LTZ offers a chrome grille, bumpers, and more, along with silver painted-aluminum wheels.

Exterior Styling

The bed in the 2019 model is one inch taller and wider than before and gives you an additional seven inches of width inside the bed for extra capacity. The 2019 Chevrolet 1500 gives you up to 20% more cargo space than their competition. In addition, the bed of the truck is loaded with tie-down points to help you make sure your cargo stays in place. In fact, with 12 tie-downs it’s got more than three times more than any other truck.

Body styles range from the basic crew cab to a more plushly designed double cab. Gone are the square cut wheel wells from previous models; this year’s model has rounded wheel cutouts for a smoother look, and the rear bumper now integrates bigger steps to accommodate your work boots.

Interior

Easily go from workday to weekend. You can bet the Chevy Silverado has your needs covered, whatever they may be. Whether it’s time with the work crew or time with the family, there’s plenty of room in the cab for everyone. The 2019 Silverado affords you more shoulder space, head space, and legroom than ever before, and with built-in seatback and under seat storage, there’s lots of room to stow your gear.

The interior is precise, neatly organized, and ready for business. All the controls are placed within easy reach, and power outlets are easy to access. The Work Truck is made for hauling and comes with vinyl flooring, and fabric or vinyl seats, but it also boasts a 7.0-inch infotainment system that’s compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Audio.

New this year is the adaptive cruise control that’s enhanced by a built-in camera. It will detect when a driver in front of you slows down, and adjust your speed accordingly. Also available is lane keep assistance that will gently guide your steering wheel to help avoid potential crashes, and a lane change alert to detect if a vehicle in your blind spot is approaching during your lane change.

Safety Features

There’s nothing better than knowing you’re safe when you’re on the road. In fact, that’s one of the most important objectives that Chevrolet has: to keep you and your family safe and comfortable in your travels.

Chevy stepped up their game this year when it comes to safety features. Last year’s model included the active lane control and emergency braking, while the 2019 model actively monitors blind spots, alerts you for rear cross traffic, provides surround-view camera angles with multiple views of the rear of the truck, as well as a rearview camera mirror to make backing up safe and easy.

With the head-up display that projects safety alerts, speed, and navigation onto the windshield, you can keep everybody safe because you’ll never have to take your eyes off the road. Throw in hands-free phone operation and radio tuning with buttons on the steering wheel, and you’re in good shape.

There’s an available forward collision alert system available which can notify the driver of a potential obstacle ahead, and also notify them if they’re driving too close to the vehicle in front of them. Depending on the braking system you choose, your Silverado can even automatically apply the brakes gently to avoid a collision if a pedestrian crosses your path.

Also new this year is teen driver technology to help keep your new drivers safe while on the road. It will automatically do things like muting the stereo system until all seat belts are buckled, and will also provide you with a report card that lets you know how the vehicle was driven when under the control of your newbie. You can use this tool to help address any problem areas with the driver and coach them to better, safer driving.

All in all, the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the perfect vehicle for all your needs: from work to family time, on-road or off, Chevy’s got you covered.
