2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2WD RST double cab

2019 Chevy Silverado investment pays off

The Silverado RST, or Rally Sport Truck, is new for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado model line-up. I drove the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2WD RST double cab with a base MSRP $38,800 and an out-the-door MSRP of $47,795.

BUILT AT: Fort Wayne, Ind. and Silao, Mexico

VEHICLE HIGHLIGHTS:

- Redesigned from the ground up, with an expanded range

of eight models and six engines/transmission choices

- Larger in almost every dimension, including a wheelbase up to 3.9 inches

(100 mm) longer and an overall length that is 1.6 inches (41 mm) longer,

enabling more cargo volume and more interior room for all cab lengths

- Up to 450 pounds (204 kg) lighter than the previous model, thanks to

advanced manufacturing and the use of mixed materials, including

a fully boxed steel frame that is 88 pounds (40 kg) lighter than its

predecessor, while offering 10 percent greater torsional rigidity

- All-new Durabed with best-in-class cargo volume, with the short box offering 63 cubic feet of volume - up to 20 percent more than

a competitor's short box. Most of that volume was created by

widening the maximum width of the bed floor nearly seven inches

- An all-new, segment-exclusive power tailgate and bed-mounted 120-volt power outlet (available features)

- Higher payloads and trailering ratings on most models, including a

14-percent (340 pounds) max payload increase for crew cab models

- More and stronger tie-downs. Silverado now has 12 fixed tie-downs, and

their strength has doubled to 500 pounds of force before bending

- Enhanced front and rear suspension with new, lightweight components,

including composite second-stage rear leaf springs on LT models

- Silverado RST offers a street-performance appearance for

the LT, with body-color trim, full LED lighting (foglamps,

headlamps and taillamps) and up to 22-inch wheels

- Dynamic Fuel Management offered on new versions of the available

5.3L and 6.2L V-8 engine offers 17 cylinder activation combinations

to optimize performance and efficiency in all driving conditions

- Remote-locking and power release tailgate is standard on the RST

- Remote vehicle starter is standard on the RST

- Chevrolet Infotainment system with 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen

- 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot (includes one-month/3GB data trial)

SAFETY FEATURES

- Dual-stage frontal airbags for driver and front outboard passenger; seat mounted side-impact airbags for driver and front outboard passenger;

head-curtain airbags for front and rear outboard seating positions

- Standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover

mitigation technology, trailer sway control, and hill-start assist

- Standard HD Rear Vision Camera

- Safety Package is available and includes Front and Rear Park Assist, Lane

Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
