Inside the Chevrolet Silverado pickup, it maintains the good tradition of the brand, in which there is a large space, large front panel, surfaces with cuts in its central console, large and comfortable seats of first row and tunnel of the colossal center with ample armrest. The longer wheelbase allows second-row passengers (such as the SuperCrew cabin) to have more room for their 40-millimeter legs.

The new Silverado 1500 looks, according to Chevrolet itself, Ford F-Series, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan. It joins the Silverado 2500 and 3500 in the brand’s portfolio, renewed in 2011. The brand knows that the dispute is great. “Do not let the work boots fool you, truck drivers are among the most sensible and demanding consumers,” says Jeff Luke, the truck’s chief engineer. On the outside, the main objective of the new design of the Silverado was the reduction of noise on board and improvement of aerodynamics. GM promises that its cabins and the Sierra are the quietest in the segment. Double cab versions now also have wider doors for easy access to the rear seats.

 Inside, there is a multimedia system with 4.2-inch screen and, as an option, there are up to 5 USB inputs, four outlets and one SD card slot. The IntelliLink connectivity system is also optional, with an 8-inch touch screen. With an eye on the consumer who uses the truck to work, GM says that all controls are easy to handle even when wearing gloves.  Among the safety features are collision warning, alert for when the car leaves the track, front and rear parking sensors, and the Drive Alert Seat system, which makes the driver’s seat vibrate in situations where there is a risk of accidents, on the Cadillac XTS General Motors unveiled the first images of the Chevrolet Silverado 2019. The pickup, which will be officially presented at the Detroit Motor Show in January, arrives with a more robust look and black finish. The model was exhibited at a centennial truck production event in the USA. The vehicle has small, high LED headlights. The frames just below resemble the current optics, but have only the direction repeaters at the bottom. The grille is entirely black as well as the Chevrolet logo in this Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss Z71 configuration. The bumper, with a glossy black finish, has two fog lights attached to the hooks at the bottom, plus chrome exhaust outlets and side steps. With a sturdy look and black finish, the bodywork features striking lines and huge rear-view mirrors. Just above the windshield appears a finned antenna, positioned to the left. A crease that begins at the front doors extends to the end of the bucket, where LED flashlights stand out. The cover comes with a camouflaged Chevrolet underlined. The Z71 configuration features shiny black alloy wheels, mixed-use tires and a two-inch raised suspension.

Although GM has not released images of the interior of the truck, it is now known that the body is made of high strength steel and better quality materials. The current utility line sold in Brazil from 1997 to 2002 was launched in the United States last year. According to information from Chevrolet, there is no chance of selling it here for now. But you never know tomorrow – even as Ford plans to re-manufacture the F-line in the country (see below). The valued version, LTZ Z71, is the top of the range and brings a huge gasoline V8 engine of no less than 5.3 liters. Despite the size, the power does not impress: they are 355 hp. There are eight smaller cylinder propellers that perform well. It is the case of the Audi 4.0, which has turbo and direct gasoline injection and delivery over 500 hp. The GM watch does not bring any of these features. The numbers are especially bad when you consider that the truck has more than two tons. In spite of the excellent disposition to accelerate starting from the immobility, the Silverado does not have breath in the hour of the resumes, situation in which it appears a little slow. The automatic gearbox, much like the Americans, has six speeds.

The driver is in a very high position, as if behind the wheel of a small truck. This feature, coupled with the large mirrors (internal and external), privileges the visibility. But outside the broad lanes typical of cities like Detroit, driving the Silverado is not easy, because of its large dimensions. They are 5.7 meters long. As a comparison, the double cab versions of the S10 pickup truck manufactured in Brazil are 34 cm shorter. The plus side is the amplitude of the cabin. There is no tightening for any of the five occupants, who have plenty of room for heads, shoulders and legs. The finish is one of the highlights of the model. The coatings are refined and the central display with data displayed in strong colors conveys an air of modernity to the utility. Everything is very large: steering wheel, center console – with an object holder that looks more like a small refrigerator – and even the levers for opening the doors. F series. Ford hired 100 employees for the São Bernardo do Campo plant in order to prepare the line to re-manufacture the F-Series. The production of these models was suspended in 2011 – the F250 was made on ABC and the F-4000. The brand did not reveal which products will be national in this new phase.

Pros and cons:


In addition to lots of space, interior has refinement in the finish.


The 355 hp of the V8 is insufficient to give agility to the heavy truck.
