Chevrolet Introduces Next-generation Silverado

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Revealed in Detroit

Where Ford's 700-pound aluminum diet brought it even with the current-generation Chevy pickup, the 2019 Silverado should once again claim class-lightweight status with 450 pounds of weight reduction. In other words, the beds are bigger, tougher and more useful.

A Chevy truck super-fan, known as a Truck Legend, wears his hat as Chevrolet unveils new Silverado trucks at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit January 14, 2018. The driver sits more than an inch higher, as are the hood and roofline. Then nip and tuck the sides so your pickup's cargo space dwarfs the competition. A spoiler on the back of the cab helps with airflow, boosting aerodynamics and efficiency.

Along with sharper lines and shaplier sheet metal, the Chevy Silverado boasts more fuel-saving features than the last iteration, starting with a diet that shed 450 pounds from the overall mass.

What to expect: Bitter cold temperatures
After a brief warm up, the cold weather is back and will be accompanied by some light snow for the beginning of the week. After many areas picked up a quick 1 to 2 inches of snow last night, we will stay day for the afternoon today .

Engineers at Chevy used weight-saving materials throughout the pickup, including seven different types of steel for the safety cage around the passengers, and a higher grade of roll-formed steer for the bed, which is almost seven inches wider inside.

Executives said the new Silverado would have a high-strength steel bed floor and use "mixed materials" to cut weight and improve fuel economy.

As for the bed, there Chevrolet has some fighting talk for Ford. This is important marketing point given the literal beating Chevrolet has given the F-150's aluminum bed in its advertising, by dropping a load of rocks and a toolbox into one to depict how it can potentially be punctured more easily than steel.

U19 WC: India starts campaign with win, beats Australia
Shaw scored 94 off 100 balls against the Australians to helping the Indians trounce the Aussies by a staggering 100-run victory. Sri Lanka wasted no time in blasting their way to 3-208 off 37.3 overs and opener Dhananjaya Lakshan scored an unbeaten 101.

The inner wheelhouses are made of a stronger grade of steel than the bed walls for increased impact resistance. Away from the fighting talk, there's a 63 cubic feet short box, while there are lockable storage bins over the wheel arches.

The 2019 Silverado will be available with a power operating rear tailgate that can open and close with the push of a button on the vehicle's key fob. 120V AC outlets are optional. The automaker surveyed more than 7,000 people to figure out the priorities of the new pickup, finishing up with more body variants and more engine and transmission combinations.

Analysts and company executives say the Silverado and the similar GMC Sierra are among the highest-profit models for the company, generating a significant share of its $9 billion in North American pretax earnings for the first nine months of 2017. V-8 offerings will include significantly revised 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 engines, which will including dynamic fuel offerings which can shut-off up to seven cylinders at a time to conserve fuel. The off-road focused model builds the Z71 package and includes a two-inch suspension lift, a locking rear differential, and skid plates.

Run-outs, Ashwin give India edge against South Africa
The big fielding was a big letdown for India as many catches were dropped, or South Africa could have bowled even earlier. India made three changes to the playing XI on Saturday, dropping Bhuvneshwar and Dhawan to bring in KL Rahul and Ishant.

What remains to be seen is how much power the new 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine can actually deliver against Ford's Power Stroke. Technology-savvy customers are further offered 4G LTE with Wi-Fi connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, as well as wireless phone charging. The knobs and controls have been enlarged and textures, to give more grip when you're wearing gloves, and there are hidden storage cubbies around the cabin, including a tray under the rear seat. The Silverado will begin production at GM's Fort Wayne assembly plant in Indiana. As for when it will go on sale, and for how much, the automaker hasn't said.
