Ed Edd and Eddy, Tom Dick and Harry. Everything seems to be coming in threes and America ain't no country to be left behind. Not with the three names affair. Enough playing around, let's swing back to motoring. Today, the U.S is the Father, Son and the Spirit of all things trucks. But why do Americans love trucks so much? This is a story that goes way back in time. The America we see today is a blend of complex and simplistic lifestyles. What a great pickup truck represents is a simple machine that is also convenient for use around town. The spirit captured by the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is that of a light that burns atop a hill.
To make this point very clear, General Motorsadorned their best selling truck with sharper lines and a more modern look. This being one truck that is synonymous with construction sites and rough terrain, the manufacturer made sure that the changes are not just skin-deep. To say the least, we can totally relate to anyone who falls in love with this beast, we already did. Let's take a look at the king of the off-road who conquered the hearts of truck enthusiasts.
According to Chevrolet, "The new Silverado is an evolution of the current design." The beastly Chevynow boasts a new diesel engine. It is a Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six which will pump out just as much horsepower as a V8 with one exception, better fuel economy. Also new is the wardrobe because it's cut some weight you know? The new design uses aluminum panels such as doors and tailgates which have been replaced by a power-retracting unit.
What is unique about it?
The new Silverado isn't just your regular pickup on wheels; it is a tech-filled truck. It has got several USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 4G LTE/Wi-Fi hotspot ready for you. The Chevy Silverado comes standard with a 7'' color touchscreen with the option of an 8-inch colored touch screen. The two are both running MyLink by Chevy which owns the bragging rights to a logical layout and big fonts. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both supported by MyLink.
Which is the best trim?
The newly introduced RST trim is without a doubt the best you can ever have. It is built for on-road performance and features full-matching bumpers and accents. Additionally, the RST also has LED headlights, tail lights as well as fog lights. As if that is not enough, they decided to throw some 22-inch wheels with all season wheels on the deal.
How does it handle itself?
The new Silverado features a stronger yet lighter construction that makes it possible to enjoy a more nimble handling than what is offered by the current generation of Silverados. The suspension has also been redesigned with a front independent and live axle rear arrangement. The mixing of steel and aluminum allows a great deal of strength and weight reduction.
Which trim levels are available?
Chevy is now offering the truck in eight trim levels. This includes the new LT Trailboss version whose debut was made in Texas, the typical American countryside. Other trims include the Work Truck, LT, Custom, Custom Trailsboss, LTZ, RST and the High Country. The revered off-roader among the eight is the Trailboss which boasts of beefier tires, a factory-installed ground clearance increment of 2 inches and the Z71's suspension. In a nutshell, this is one truck that we really love!
