Thewill start at $29,795, which includes a $1,495 destination charge and is $400 cheaper than last year's equivalent truck. This is a proper base model, with a regular cab, a long bed and rear-wheel drive. The standard engine is Chevrolet's 285-horsepower, 305-pound-foot 4.3-liter V6, which comes mated to a six-speed automatic. It's good for up to 8,000 pounds of towing or 2,500 pounds of payload.
Chevy's 5.3-liter V8 is available on this trim, as well. It puts out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, enabling towing up to 11,000 pounds and payload up to 2,430 pounds.
The 4.3-liter V6 is also standard on the Custom and Custom Trail Boss trims. These two trims, and all the trims above them, are available with either a double cab and a standard bed or a crew cab and a short bed. The Custom starts at $36,095, while the 4WD-only Custom Trail Boss starts at $40,995.
If you want a 2019 Silverado with, it's first available on the LT trim, as well as the sportier RST trim above that. It's a mighty little guy, with an output of 310 horsepower and 348 torques, and it mates to an eight-speed automatic. It'll tow up to 7,200 pounds and haul up to 2,280. The LT starts at $38,395 (a $700 price drop over last year), and the RST will set you back $40,295. The 5.3-liter V8 is available here, as well, as is Chevrolet's new 3.0-liter I6 diesel engine. Output and towing figures for the diesel are still TBA.
That 5.3-liter V8 is standard equipment on the next two trims, the $47,395 LT Trail Boss (4WD only) and the $44,495 LTZ. In fact, that's the only engine you can slam into the LT Trail Boss. The LTZ, on the other hand, can wield the 5.3-liter V8, the 3.0-liter diesel I6 or Chevrolet's 6.2-liter V8. The 6.2 is the big boy, offering 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet with up to 12,200 pounds of towing capacity.
Once you move up to the range-topping Silverado High Country, the 6.2-liter V8 becomes standard. It's the fanciest, most expensive Silverado you can buy, with a starting price of $54,495, about $1,000 more than the last generation. It's also the only Silverado that is offered solely with a crew cab and short bed. You can get the diesel if you want, though.
