Chevrolet let all the truck fans in Fort Worth, Texas in on a preview of the 2019 Silverado before it’s debuted at the Detroit Auto Show next month. And they did it in a dramatic way. While enthusiasts were attending the Chevy Truck Centennial celebrations, Chevy dropped the 2019 Silverado on the Texas Motor Speedway from a helicopter.
There aren’t a lot of details yet but before they drove it off the Speedway you can tell it has the Z71 Trailboss package, all-terrain tires, and is rumored to have the 6.2-liter L86 V8 that puts out 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. What do you think of the new, sleek design?
This week on PowerNation Katie’s featured ride is a rare 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge. Owner Bill Stovall got it from a salvage yard 18 years ago and did a total frame off restoration back to like factory new. Only 58 came with the Ram Air-4 engine with automatic transmission. That classic color is “Carousel Red” with an interior as stock as it came with black bucket seats, an AM radio, no power seats or power brakes. As Bill says “This is a muscle car that takes muscle to drive”. Along with the tech from our four shops, Team Summit NHRA Funny Car racer Tim Wilkerson has a tech tip on relays. Check it all out this week on PowerNation.
And from all of us here at the Tech Center we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy NewYear!!
