GM has expended more effort and more time differentiating the looks of the Silverado from those of its GMC Sierra sibling.

A wheelbase that's up to 3.9 inches longer helps maximize interior room and yield a more comfortable ride.

All crew-cab Silverados benefit from a larger cab and a higher seating position, as well as higher-quality materials.

The way the front fenders wrap into the grill and hunker down over the bumper to create air curtain passageways won't be for everyone.

The Silverado's bed is seven inches wider, and it's deeper, too, yielding a 20% improvement in space.

Even if you don't opt for the High Country, you'll be pleased by the well-laid-out controls and tons of storage space.

Thanks to increased use of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels, the 2019 Silverado 1500 weighs around 450 pounds less than its predecessor.

Oh, yes, aluminum doors, hood and tailgate help too.

A mighty 6.2-liter V8 is the top-shelf engine option, and it features trick new cylinder deactivation tech that enables it to run on between one and eight cylinders for maximum efficiency.

The Durabed offers 12 tie-downs that are twice as strong as before, and the bed itself features high-strength flooring made of 500-megapascal steel.

Speaking of phones, the MyChevrolet app is free with all Silverado 1500 trucks, and it features a step-by-step how-to-tow videos, along with towing checklists and a dictionary of tow jargon.

You can get a lot of cameras on the new Silverado. A new Trailer Camera Package offers up to four cameras that enables a 270-degree view.

The Advanced Trailering System features a hitch guide feature with dynamic backup lines to help reliably and easily insert Tab A into Slot B.

GM has taken the simple but clever step of adding a trailering label in the door jambs that displays the exact towing capabilities of their exact truck. Tied to the vehicle's VIN, it accounts for things like engine and transmission, bed configuration, tow package and so on.

Sometimes, old tech rules.
