This year is definitely a big year for truck lovers. We have already seen few major premieres, and it turns for something very special – 2019 Chevy Silverado SS. The new generation of the famous full-size truck has been presented recently and we are about to see its hi-performance version as well. So, we are about to see an “SS” badged Silverado, after so many years, with plenty of unique details and excellent performances. The new 2019 Silverado SS is about to come by the end of next year.
When was the last time we saw Chevy Silverado SS?
This hi-performance version was available only with the first-generation model. It came in 2003, with a mighty V8 engine and plenty of new visual details. A few years later, few saw a special edition called Intimidator SS, to honor late Dale Earnhardt.
2019 Chevy Silverado SS Design
So what to expect from the new 2019 Chevy Silverado SS? Of course, it will be based on the recently introduced new generation of this full-size pickup. The company has presented a truck with a brand-new platform, which brings a lot of improvements. Compared to the previous model, it is for about 300 lighter, which will definitely have a great impact on overall performances. The 2019 Chevy Silverado SS is about to come with numerous modifications compared to the base model. Of course, expect to see a bunch of novelties on the chassis. We will probably see a complete performance package, which will include new sporty suspension, new brakes, exhaust tips and much.
Besides mechanical upgrades, the 2019 Chevy Silverado SS will also bring a lot of visual changes. Compared to the base model, this one will come with a bunch of new details that will emphasize its sporty character. It is hard to tell something more specific at the moment but we are pretty sure plenty of amazing things. Thanks to the new suspension, it will definitely have a lower ground clearance. Also, expect to see new, bigger wheels, sports tires, new grille, bumper with larger air intakes and much more.
It is hard to tell more specific details about the 2019 Chevy Silverado SS interior at the moment. There is no doubt that the new cabin will be heavily based on the standard model, though we don’t know how intense modifications will be. We can presume that the new model won’t go in total performance adaptation. The new 2019 Chevy Silverado SS will rather keep a comfortable interior, with all the gadgetry and other technologies that base models have.
2019 Chevy Silverado SS engine
There is no doubt that the new 2019 Chevy Silverado SS will come with one of GM’s V8 engines. The base model has 5.3- and 6.2-liter units in the offer. Both of them are atmospheric. On the other side, this version will get help from a Supercharged. If we can judge on the concept from a year ago, it should be a smaller 5.3-unit. For this occasion, it was tuned to 450 horsepower, which is almost 100 horses more compared to naturally-aspirated version. However, the new model could easily get a Supercharged version of the bigger 6.2-liter unit. This powertrain has been in use already, for the company’s sports cars Corvette and Camaro. In this variant, it delivers around 650 horses and 650 pound-feet of torque, which sounds amazing to see such amount of power under the hood of one truck.
When will 2019 Chevy Silverado SS arrive?
Though we are still waiting for the official confirmation, our well-informed source suggests 2019 Chevy Silverado SS’ arrival by the end of the year. More details about the launch date and price should be known in next few months.
