2019 CHEVROLET SILVERADO STARTS AT $29,795
Turbo-four LT model will cost up to $700 less than the outgoing truck
This will be the first four-cylinder engine GM has ever installed a full-size pickup.

Further up the trim ladder, the High Country adds $1,000 to its sticker along with a host of new standard equipment like lane change alert, side blind zone alert, advanced trailering system, LED exterior lighting and GM’s slick new power up/down tailgate.

2019 Silverados with the 5.3-liter V8 and eight-speed automatic are already hitting dealer lots. 6.2-liter V8 models with GM’s 10-speed automatic will follow along with the rest of the new engine options, including the 3.0-liter I6 turbo-diesel. In a tough truck market, Chevy thinks its new pickup will hit the sweet spot for a lot of customers.
