 2019 Chevrolet Silverado appears to have aluminum envy, as our spy photographers captured a test truck wrapped in Ford F-150-like camouflage. These are some of our first shots of the new truck, which was seen at a General Motors testing facility. It's rumored to make extensive use of aluminum and composite materials in order to shed pounds and improve fuel economy.

The wheel wells look like they could be dangerously close to being circular!

I thought the same about the wells. That's embarrassing that you have to camo it like an F150.

They really know how to innovate don't they.

The truck in the camo that is disguised to look like a Ford looks better than the trucks without camo.

I thought it was just a decoy at first, but behind the black camo, you can see some painted sheetmetal with the zebra camo......unless that's decoy stuff too.

Good call, I didn't notice that in the second pic.

I think it's just for practicality. The window line camouflage would partially block the side view mirror.

I can't tell if it actually drops down or if it's just the camo.  And we couldn't see through the window to the door panel on the other side.  The mirror mount is also odd looking.....unless it's just disguise, it's almost a mast mount look.

As an additional piece of news......Chevy will be adding another feature they made fun of Ford for having (first aluminum) and now a tailgate step.....it appears to basically be a tailgate within a tailgate within a tailgate.....or tailgateception.

That tailgate looks kinda cool, and it could be used as a seat for a couple folks as well.  However, it looks much more complex and involved than the Ford system.

I assume you're referring to sitting on the lower part?  Would it have enough room to sit on it?

Perhaps they had to do it that way to avoid existing patents.

 

Nothing new for GM though.   They just came out with their version of Mykey within the last couple of years.  Ford had it in 2011.

Yeah, that's what I'm referring to.  Kinda hard to tell on the room without dimensions, but looks like it may work.

It looks roughly to be a 1/3 of the tailgate size by the time you subtract the part that folds down to support the lower step, so maybe it could function as a mini seat....don't think it'd be too comfortable, though.

 

Perhaps they had to do it that way to avoid existing patents.

 

Nothing new for GM though.   They just came out with their version of Mykey within the last couple of years.  Ford had it in 2011.

 

Yeah, that's true.

Yeah, that's true.

 

What ticks me off is that when they do come out with a new feature years after Ford they act like they invented it.  I'm sure aluminum trucks and tallgate steps will be exactly the same.

The Chevy step looks convoluted and unnecessarily complex. I don't like the idea of putting part of your tailgate further down in harms way. I guess we will have to wait and see its execution for final judgment.

I will say I absolutely love the step on my F150. It was a great innovation that is very useful.
