    Except that the changes are far to stop there.

    Chevrolet has confirmed that the Silverado 2019 may now be animated by a turbo diesel engine six-cylinder in-line 3.0-litre. Once again, comparisons with Ford are inevitable. The F-150 2018 now offers a V6 diesel and it was well expect to see Chevrolet’s respond.

    We do not yet know the specifications of the new engine, Silverado’s, but Chevrolet has assured that he would propose a higher capacity than the F-150. The war is launched!

    In addition to this new diesel version, the Silverado 2019 will still be available with V8 engines 5.3 L and 6.2 L.

    The Silverado 2019 will also be equipped with a new automatic transmission 10 reports, the same that can also be found in the… Ford F-150! In fact, it is a transmission built in partnership between Ford and GM.
