Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept

  Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept It's just a concept for now.The best part of the truck is under the hood. Here, the smallest 5.3-liter V8 is thoroughly heated up with an intercooled supercharger based on the unit used on the LT4 engine in the Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1. Chevrolet claims it adds over 100 horsepower, which means the 5.3's standard 355 horsepower would jump to at least 455. That would also mean it makes 35 more horsepower than the available 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8. That does present the question of why GM wouldn't have simply supercharged the 6.2-liter, but we applaud the company for considering the potential of more than just the top-spec powertrains.

It features a vertical divider in the middle, which is home to a massive Chevrolet emblem. Further down, the bumper accommodates new fog lamps and what appears to be an additional air intake at the bottom.

Immediately, the 2019 Silverado 1500's front fascia grabs attention with its new slim headlights and a massive new grille that changes based on the trim level. The most aggressive-looking variant is the Trail Boss with its blacked out front fascia, giving it a tougher appearance than other trims. In comparison, the outgoing Silverado 1500 was boxier and its front end didn't have nearly as much visual pop as the 2019 model.

From the side, both trucks have a very similar silhouette until you get closer to the front where the 2019 model's slim headlight clusters give it a less conventional look by breaking up all the boxiness. Out back, the angular theme continues with taillights that mimic the shape of the headlights and split dual exhaust tips instead of the large side exit tips of the outgoing truck. The most obvious change is the addition of a large Chevrolet script on the tailgate, which is similar to what's found in crosstown rivals Ram 1500 and certain trims of the Ford F-150

The beds would be made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), commonly just called carbon fiber. And the promise is that this would make the beds far stronger than steel or aluminum while weighing less.

The interior is where some familiarity can be found between the 2019 model and the outgoing truck such as the dual glove box and a conventional instrument cluster. Some of the controls remain to the left of the driver; however, the center stack in the 2019 Silverado 1500 appears to have more buttons compared to its predecessor. Even the center console design is similar and features a large storage cubby ahead of the cup holders and on the side.

2019 GMC Sierra To Debut On March 1 In Detroit .
The fancy Denali version will also be revealed. With the new 2019 Chevy Silverado premiering last month at the Detroit Auto Show, it comes as no surprise we won’t have to wait much longer to see its GMC Sierra counterpart. Automotive News has it on good authority the official debut is locked in for March 1 in Detroit, which means it’s not going to be on display at the forthcoming Chicago Auto Show this month. Instead, GMC will likely host the public debut of the revamped Sierra at the end of March on the occasion of the New York Auto Show.
