Interesting. Looks like they did the sideburns for the Silverado now.

Looks Like they are copying the F150 to me in the front and the rear looks like a Tundra. Hoping it looks better in person.

The one thing that I hope will make it to the production models is that they are filling the wheelwells better with decent sized tires.

I wonder how the curved wheel wells will be perceived. I guess I am impartial but this is a break from the norm for GM. I wonder if this means the SUV line up will inherit a more curved wheel well.

There are lots of rumors going that they are going to merge the Traverse and Tahoe platforms. Let's see what the CAFE requirements make GM do.

Good point, we sometimes forget that designers and engineers great ideas are re-directed by "requirements"....

So from the truck official intro, looks like there are 8 different trim levels. The most interesting one is the Trail Boss....the upsman to the Z71 package...specs shows it to have a 2" suspension lift.

One of the more interesting developments is the availability of a 3.0L Duramax diesel engine.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/2019-chevrolet-s...-003005394.html

And topping things off, the Ram truck will also be all new for 2019. Competition is great.

Hopefully, we get to see some of this trickle over to the Tahoe/Suburban when they do the refresh..... Ford has upped the ante by offering their FX4 off road in their Expy.

I like the looks and the specs. Does any of this new stuff apply to the 2500HD, or just the 1500's for now?
The 2500HD with the 6.0 gas engine could use some updating.... rolleyes.gif

2500 and 3500 is likely not updating at least until 2020–about the same time as the Tahoe Suburban refresh.
