The Bow Tie announced pricing for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado with a price drop on some higher volume trims like the LT and a hefty increase on its top of the line models.
For example, a base Work Truck starts at $29,795 for a regular cab with a long bed. If you are looking for something a bit more upscale, a loaded High Country with a crew cab and a short bed starts at $54,495—an increase of $1,000 over last year’s model.
A middle of the road Silverado LT with a double cab and a standard bed starts at $38,395—that’s $700 less than last year’s model according to Chevy bean counters. The LT crew cab with a short bed now starts at $40,795.
Chevy’s Silverado LT crew cab gets a standard all-new turbo 2.7-liter inline-four engine with 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque. Optional power choices include a 5.3-liter V-8 or a 3.0-liter inline-six turbo diesel engine. The 2.7-liter engine and the V-8 are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the diesel is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability and value,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet VP in a statement.
