2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 For Sale Near Asheville
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the most popular trucks in the United States. While Silverado buyers don’t welcome big changes to the vehicle’s appearance, they do appreciate updates that bring new features. The redesign for 2019 keeps the Silverado faithful happy, with some minor exterior changes, along with some new V8 engines that bring more power to the table. The Asheville Chevrolet dealer expects the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to continue to be a big seller this year.
On the outside, buyers will notice the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 gets a bolder grille, and the body panels get a refresh as well.

You won’t notice this from behind the wheel, but the Silverado gets a reduction in weight this year.
