All-New 2019 Chevy Silverado LT Will Cost $700 Less Than Last Year’s Model
The next-gen pickup's volume-selling trim features a starting MSRP of $38,395
Buyers lining up to purchase the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado are in luck. The pickup’s volume-selling LT trim will carry an MSRP that’s $700 less than the 2018 model.
“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability, and value,” said Chevrolet U.S. Vice President Brian Sweeney. “The next-gen Silverado continues that tradition—offering more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities, and a lower starting MSRP on our highest-volume model.”
For the double cab configuration with standard bed and 2WD, the 2019 Silverado LT will start at $38,395. The crew cab configuration with short bed is $40,795.
Meanwhile, the Silverado’s base Work Truck trim starts at $29,795 and the top-of-the-line High Country trim comes in at $54,495.
Dare to Compare: How does the Chevy Silverado stack up against the competition?
The LT features a new standard engine: a 2.7-liter inline-four turbo that delivers 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. Even though this new engine is smaller, it still manages to deliver 22% more torque than the engine it’s replacing, a 4.3-liter V6.
EPA estimates for the new 2.7-liter engine haven’t been released yet, but Chevy says it’s likely to offer improved fuel economy. For even more efficiency, the LT also features an eight-speed automatic transmission, stop-start technology, and active aero shutters.
Overall, the 2019 Silverado is 450 pounds than the previous model. At the same time, it’s also bigger. The cab features up to 4 more cubic feet of interior volume, and cargo bed space has also been increased. Chevy points out that the new Silverado’s short bed actually offers more cargo volume than the Ford F-150’s standard bed.
