Let the truck wars begin.
The Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most important vehicles that General Motors makes so it comes as little surprise the company made a decision to unveil the truck at the North American International Auto Show.
The new Silverado has a longer wheel base and more passenger and cargo space than the current model, yet is 450 pounds lighter. The 2019 Silverado will be available with a power up/down tailgate that can be operated from the key fob, interior button or by hand.
"The working end of every pickup is the bed".
At the preview of the Silverado on Saturday, GM's product development chief Mark Reuss took yet another shot at the competition, saying "I don't think you can get much work done with an aluminum hammer".
Designers and engineers paid particular attention to aerodynamics for better fuel economy, GM said. For reference, the Ram's 3.0 liter EcoDiesel engine delivers just 10 HP and 20 lb-ft less than Ford's diesel equivalent. GM's oil-burner, made in-house, debuts in the Silverado.

Check back for the latest news from the Detroit auto show here. That hasn't happened. Indeed, Chevy skewered its rival with "real people" commercials showing a dropped toolbox puncturing the bed of the F-150.
Chevy already gave us a quick look at the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 at its 100 year celebration last month in Texas, but now we have all the official details about the all-new Silverado. "For example, a higher-grade alloy is used in the roll-formed, high-strength-steel bed floor, contributing to a bed that is more functional and lighter weight", Chevy reports in a news release. Remarkably, it's also lighter, weighing 450 pounds (204 kg) less than today's truck when comparing crew cab V-8 models.
The introduction of the diesel engine is, in itself, a significant move, because there are now three somewhat equivalent options in the half ton truck category for new buyers and upgraders. In addition to its aluminum diet, Ford has committed to a turbocharged V-6 strategy to save fuel while increasing torque.
Trump would make 'big mistake' by leaving Iran deal: Moscow
However, it is worthy of note that all these areas that Iranians are complaining about are outside the scope of the nuclear deal. The pact is underpinned on the USA side by a presidential waiver of nuclear-related sanctions on Iran's central bank.
It also gets two new V-8 engines 5.3-liters and 6.2-liters that can shut off any number of cylinders to save gas, yet have "instant power" available when needed. In fact, Chevy says the interior will be the roomiest of all full-size trucks.
Alan Batey, GM's head of North America, said Chevy will offer eight different configurations of the truck from basic work models to well-equipped off-road and luxury versions so they can be personalized. On an annual basis, Ford's F-Series sold almost 900,000 units in 2017, compared to about 586,000 units of the Chevy Silverado from GM. In addition to the available power liftgate, the Silverado offers 4G WiFi and smartphone app compatibility.
