Dallas, Texas - General Motors’ best selling model, and cash cow of note, has been given a complete redesign in a fresh challenge to Ford’s F150, which outsells it on the US market.
Chevrolet’s left-hand-drive-only Silverado range has only ever been a fantasy to South African bakkie fans and now that GM has pulled out of our market, the chances of this new one reaching our shores has gone from slim to none.
Let’s take a look at what we’re missing out on.
According to Chevrolet, the 2019 Silverado has been completely redesigned from the ground up and boasts a muscular new design with more prominent sheetmetal creasing.
Interestingly Chevrolet has not followed Ford in making extensive use of aluminium, but the company does claim to have achieved a significant (although as yet unspecified) weight reduction through a mixture of materials and construction techniques.
