PickupTrucks.com Editor Mark Williams recently headed out to the Idaho/Wyoming border near Yellowstone National Park to drive multiple versions of Chevrolet's all-new 2019 Silverado 1500. Chevrolet updated so much of the truck that it was a struggle to fit it all into a single video.

Interior improvements include a revised center stack and relocated controls for easier and safer operation. On the exterior, besides the aesthetic redesign, the bed itself has seen significant upgrades from both structural and features standpoints.
Williams had opportunities for highway and street driving with and without a trailer, as well as off-roading in the new Trail Boss Z71 trim. It's worth noting that this new Trail Boss trim level doesn't turn the Silverado into an F-150 Ford Raptor fighter, but can it handle more than just an unpaved road?
Chevy also updated the towing technology and safety available on the Silverado, including a multiple-camera system that can even see behind the trailer — with additional optional equipment. The towing package also adds multiple information and checklist screens to make sure the driver is fully informed about what's going on with the trailer. It even has specific settings depending on the type of trailer being pulled; see if you can count how many different trailer types it covers.
I don't want to put words into Williams' mouth, so you'll have to watch the video to find out what he thinks of the Bow Tie's new half ton Chevy Silverado. If you're considering a new pickup, it's definitely worth watching.
