2019 Chevy Silverado?

I am thinking about looking into getting a 2019 Silverado. Has anyone seen one ? I would like some opinions I donít know if I should get a leftover 2018 or await for. 2019. Will there be any major changes?

There is a reason that the F150 has outsold Chevrolet for the past 40 years. It is hands down a better truck. Do yourself a favor look at the F150.

F models accounted for 896,764 units sold in 2017. Chevy/GMC trucks accounted for 803,870.

While F models lead in truck sales, GM surpasses Ford in all categories of US vehicles sold, with around a 17.6% market share. Ford comes in at about 14.2%.

Everyone has their favorites for one reason or another. Still a hot topic each fall at our Potter reunions, as to which pickup is "the best".

Observed long ago that most of the clan seems to favor whatever dad had bought, but now and then someone goes off the reservation? Seem to be a few more RAMs the past few years, than once was the norm.

I've always preferred Chevy pickups and my dad never owned a Chevy of any kind, his entire life. He drove Dodges, Plymouths, Pontiacs, Buicks and one Ford, back around 1950. Uncle that owned the dairy farm where camp is, just the opposite. Nothing but Fords, except for a new '64 Chevy BelAir, then back to Ford cars/trucks again.

Gave him and my dad something extra to haggle about, as long as I can remember. Usually dad asking him if he was ever gonna patch the rust on his Ford trucks, back in the 70s.

I own a 2009 chevy silverado and a 2010 Ford F150. It is no contest. The F150 has held up better, had less repairs, the chevy has had several thousand dollars worth of new parts, transmission TWICE, computer TWICE. The Ford handles a load better, pulls my camper better, rides smoother, interior has held up better, and while the bed, fenders and rear bumper of the chevy have needed major rust repair the ford still looks good. And the Ford has 22000 more miles on it. Not saying the silverado is a bad truck, its not. Im saying the F150 is a better truck.

When you cannot prevail in a discussion you deflect.

Add Chevrolet and GMC totals and still come up thousands of sales short. Then add overall sales percentages of all Chevrolet and GMC sales so you can have a higher percentage.

Like I said there is a reason that The F150 has outsold Chevrolet for the last 40 years. No deflection. Just the facts.

Yep, F models outsell the competition and since Chevy and GMC trucks are essentially the same vehicle but for cosmetics, that competition they outsell, is GM trucks.

Not a big "brand allegiance" guy. I drive Chevy trucks, because since the first pickup in 1970, they've been pretty good to me over the years. Only clunker Chevy in all those years, was a new '72 G20 work van that lasted for over six years. Totaled the front end on a deer in buck season of '78, or it would've lasted a bit longer.

Had two Dodge trucks back in the 70s and 80s. The '84 actually had a RAM badge on the fenders. My huntin' bud called it The Lamb. Worst trucks ever owned, will never buy another one, even if they have improved over the years.

If ya love Fords, drive one.

F series also accounts for the 2 and 4 wheel drive models. With Chevy they had a C series (2wd) and a K series (4wd). Ford was able to skew the numbers for a lot of years because of it.

My observation locally is that you can generally buy a ford for less than other brands. Since people around here would drive 20 miles to buy a product for $5 that they could get down the block for $5.50, fords sell better. My BIL was always a ford guy, his trucks did ok, not great but ok, of course he keeps them pretty long and uses them hard. Hunting friends always had chevys and toyotas, they like their trucks.

All the same argument, will never be settled, all a roll of the dice that you won't get that occasional problem one.
Buy what you like, if it doesn't work change it, and move on.
Okay I'm done now.
