New images of the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 prototypes reveal more details about the upcoming wheel/tire, suspension, and exhaust packages. Big thanks to Cameron Topliff for providing all of the images you see here.
The truck with the blacked out wheels is sitting relatively low and has a side dump exhaust tip in the back. On the other hand, the prototype with the silver rims has a taller sidewall tire, a visually higher ride height, and a dual exhaust system. This is possibly a truck with an off-road Chevy Z71 or a GMC All Terrain package.
The rear view of the truck also shows a distinct crease in the tailgate that points to the design direction of the next generation of the GM’s half-ton trucks.
Previous reports suggest that the dual rear exhaust system will be available with a turbo-diesel engine option. Information about the engine/transmission options and specifications have not been announced yet. We are guessing that the 10-speed automatic transmission will be part of the offering.
The next generation 2019 Ram 1500 is being unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show in January, 2018. When will GM unveil its latest truck lineup? We think it is coming soon, and the Detroit show is a possibility.
