Possible reason may be that they might want to offer a front bench seat for some work trucks.

You can still do that with a rotary knob

Re: 2019 Silverado Revealed

the exterior is ok in the top versions (not sure if I like it or not), the base models look bad.......the interior doesn't look good at all.

Re: 2019 Silverado Revealed

This has a better looking exterior than the Ram, but the interior looks like a two decades old Buick.

2019 Silverado re-Revealed? O-Rly?

AlexOnAutos on FB

It appears that GM is investing in Delphi/Tula's cylinder skipping technology in a big way with the new Silverado. Both V8 engines will feature what GM is calling "Dynamic Skip Fire". This is a firm step beyond cylinder deactivation which GM and others have used for a while.

In current deactivation systems the same cylinders are deactivated each time making a V8 into a V4 for instance. This can only be used in situations where power requirements are low and the harmonics of a V4 don't disturb the cabin too much. Cylinder skipping on the other hand skips any number of cylinders in a firing order. For instance: firing one cylinder, then skipping two, then firing one, skipping two, etc. This allows a V8 to operate on a single cylinder if needed, all 8 for maximum power or anywhere between.

The result is a system that produces fewer unwanted harmonics thereby allowing a broader range of situations where it can be used. The key questions of course will be reliability and efficacy, will the improvement in furl economy be worth it? GM is saying we should see a 15% gain from DSF in their new pickup trucks.

So I guess with direct injection it stops the gas injection also. They are talking some serious savings so I imagine it works.

Re: 2019 Silverado Revealed

It's a complex system, and controls nightmare. We have been designing and building them for a while.

Re: 2019 Silverado Revealed

^ maybe read Alex's FB page - sounds like GM did a hit-&-miss job with deactivation
tho Chrysler's is more reliable

The 2019 Silverado has a stubby profile, tall short hood and a long cargo box with tall walls.
These odd proportions allow it to have the biggest cargo box volume.


2019 Silverado
Short: 63 cubic feet
Standard: 72 cubic feet
Long: 89 cubic feet


2018 F-150
Short: 53 cubic feet
Standard: 62 cubic feet
Long: 77 cubic feet

Do you guys think this will affect the F150's dominance in the full-size pickup segment?

Re: 2019 Silverado Revealed

It's always hard to predict but I think F-150 is particularly vulnerable right now against the triple threat of Chevy/GMC/RAM which are all outstanding catch-ups to the Ford. Ford's SuperDuty business however is probably stronger and closer to a refresh to coincide with the arrival of more Medium Duty competition.

F-150 is just much farther away from a new design so it's going to be the old kid on the block for a number of years so presumably that will either come with better deals or fewer sales. I think GM's Full-Size truck business has a chance of overtaking Ford once again in the interim but I doubt one brand will overtake it.

Either way, Ford has some outstanding new Trucks coming to widen that gap again and to match some of the nicer amenities of the new guys.
