The most recent generation of the Chevy Silverado 1500 debuted with the 2019 model year. This brought a completely redesigned platform, with a lighter and larger body, roomier cab, and new engines, including a diesel and a gasoline 4-cylinder. Improving one of the best-selling trucks in America wasn’t easy, but Chevy managed to build on its reputation for strong performance, reliability, and convenient and comfortable interiors. Also new for the fourth-generation Silverado 1500 was improved infotainment tech and towing tech. The 2020 model year saw expanded towing and safety tech and best-in-class towing capabilities.
The third-generation Chevy Silverado 1500 stands out for its increased power and new technology. This generation debuted with the 2014 model year. You’ll find a powerful 6.2-liter V8, as well as a base engine that increased its horsepower from 195 hp to 285 hp. In terms of tech, a revised steering system simplified tuning and refined the suspension and handling. Fuel economy also benefited from the new technology with cylinder deactivation, and four-wheel drive was now available across all models. The body was also lighter due to the use of more aluminum and high-strength steel.
The second generation of the Chevy Silverado 1500 ran from 2007–2013 and featured more trim levels than previously offered, giving buyers more choices, with five trims. Here you’ll find modern conveniences such as keyless entry and cruise control, as well as improved fuel economy. You’ll also find big V8 engines, such as the 6.0-liter and 6.2-liter Vortec engines. FlexFuel technology was new for this generation as well as electronic stability control, navigation, and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. The first generation, which was released in 1999, was based on the GMT 800 platform and was the first pickup truck with an automatic transmission with a tow/haul mode.
Chevrolet heavily redesigned its popular Silverado two years ago. This latest take brings a modern sensibility to the pickup from its workhorse beginnings to the multi-purpose vehicle it is today. The sparse equipment list and low-quality interiors have been replaced with features more commonly associated with cars and luxury vehicles. Yet Chevy hasn't forgotten the roots of the Silverado, which sports greater hauling and towing capacity as well.
Like all full-size trucks in the segment, the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado can be had in a wide range of configurations thanks to the various body styles, available engines, drivetrain options, trim levels and bed lengths.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has always been known for having a comfortable and practical interior. The Silverado continues in this same vein and enhances the level of comfort and practicality. The all-new Chevy Silverado has even more rear leg room than the 2018 model, which was already quite spacious.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 exemplifies the rugged safety that drivers expect from full-size pickup trucks. Many full-size pickup trucks actually fail to live up to these expectations. The 2019 Ford F-150 is a perfect example of this. It is made out of aluminum, which is considerably weaker than the durable steel construction of the 2019 Silverado 1500. In addition to the tough materials, the Silverado also has multiple advanced safety technologies. The available Auto Electric Parking Brake Assist ensures that the parking brake activates at the right time and holds the Silverado 1500 securely in place, especially when towing a trailer. Another cutting-edge safety feature is the available side view camera setup. These cameras are vital when towing a trailer, and they are still helpful even without a trailer.

Full-size pickup trucks aren’t exactly known for being technologically advanced, but the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 may just change that. It has an available app specifically for trailering purposes. This app incorporates Theft Alert and Tire Pressure Monitoring. Towing a trailer can make visibility difficult, which is why the Silverado offers an available port for an additional aftermarket camera. The most unique tech feature in the Chevy Silverado may be the optional head-up display that shows speed, current gear, revs and more.
