Checking out the Trims on the 2019 Silverado: 8 Sensational Selections

As spring brings about the most beautiful weeks of the year, later sunsets, fresh flowers, and many outdoor activities are on tap for St. Louis area residents. Jim Butler customers that are now on the hunt for their ideal truck will no doubt have a few questions about the varieties of trim levels now available to them. Next Year’s Silverado offers 8 different trims, paired up with six different transmission and engine combinations. You may have a very large family that is always on the go, or be a brand new business owner: either way, you’ll be able to pinpoint the trim level that is ideal for you, and that will meet your needs for longevity, A-list tech features, and long-lasting performance. These 5.2-liter and 6.2-liter engines have all seen major upgrades, and over half of these new models will be equipped with some of the most advanced V8 engines in Chevy’s longstanding history.

Both the RST and Silverado LT offer the advanced and all-new for 2019 2.7-liter engine that is on deck to replace the current 4.3-liter V6, setting a brand new engine standard. It is now equipped to offer 22 percent more torque, a heftier power-to-weight ratio, and higher fuel efficiency. There now also exists the option to curb many hard-working men and women’s craving for a diesel truck: the new Duramax 3.0-liter inline six turbo is slated to become available early next year. Three very focused consumer profiles are the base for the available engine and transmission combinations: High Value, High Volume, or High Feature. The High Value profile is for customers that are looking for the capabilities and features of a full-size truck, but are not in the market for a hefty price tag.

The High Volume profile was designed with those in mind that have their driving priorities situated exactly in the middle of the current market’s offerings. Much like the very hard-working residents of the heartland itself, the LT Trail Boss, LT, and RST trims are in existence to provide drop-dead accuracy, efficiency, and the very latest in tech options for the driver. The all-new 2.7-liter Turbo with Active Fuel Management and stop/start technology is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and is the currently existing standard for the LT and RST. The updated 5.3-liter V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management and 8-speed transmission is standard on the LT Trail boss, delivering a massive boost in power, and an entirely new breed of capability.

If your search would be complete with an upper-end premium truck, the High Feature profile is sure to be at the top of your list: the LTZ and High Country trims provide the utmost level of quality and performance currently in existence. The entry-level Standard trim is now equipped with the 5.3-liter V8, stop/start technology, and Dynamic Fuel Management, while still mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission. More power comes in the form of the optional 6.2-liter V8 on this trim level, and you have the opportunity to up the ante with two extra gears, courtesy of the 10-speed transmission.

All of these models boast more efficiency in weight class and aerodynamics than currents, and the closely-watched fuel efficiency

number has not been compromised in the rolling out of the final product. Staking its claim as the most dependable and long-lasting pickup on the road, the Silverado is put through 7 million miles of road testing, and 475,000 rigorous validation tests before release. To help assure that every single new truck off the line is in top shape and safe, all of us here at Jim Butler are proud to stand behind and offer great financing on next year’s upcoming Silverado: this is the truck that can haul, carry, and mud-trail its way to victory every during every single drive!
