The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most aerodynamic full-size trucks available due to extensive use of aero features. The integrated spoiler at the rear edge of the cab directs air onto the tailgate lip, reducing wind drag from the bed. Changes like these result in a 7 percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency.
