How much will the new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 cost? What are the fuel economy ratings for the all the different engine configurations? Chevrolet releases pricing, power, and some fuel economy estimates.

The work truck regular cab starts at $29,795. How does it compare to the 2018 Silverado or the competition? The 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 starts at an identical $29,795 (including destination charges). A 2018 Ford F-150 starts at a slightly lower $29,200.

Here are the power specifications, fuel economy estimates, towing and payload specifications for the new truck. Maximum payload for the 2019 Chevy is a respectable 2,500 lbs, and maximum towing with the new 6.2L V8 is 12,200 lbs. This is a great towing capacity for a half-ton truck, but it is not a “class leading” claim that truck manufacturers love to make. A Ford F-150 can be configured for a maximum towing rating of 13,200 lbs.
