There were many features on the 2019 Chevy Silverado 4WD LTZ Crew, definitely too many to list in one sitting, so I would like to highlight some of my favorites.
Disclosure: This vehicle was loaned to us in order to review it. All thoughts, images, videos and opinions are our own.
First of all, let me tell you about the remote start. From a good distance, you simply press the remote and viola, it starts up and the A/C even starts up for you. So nice, especially in the Texas summer!
The tailgate was also controlled by the remote, allowing you to press a button and lower the tailgate or raise it, definitely
convenient when you need access to the tailgate and may not be able to operate it manually.
The next thing I noticed that I really enjoyed was the camera system, the Front and Rear Park assist and Rear Vision Camera. Not only is there a backup camera, but there is a display that shows a bird’s eye view of the truck with surrounding obstacles and vehicles. This really helps when backing up, especially with a larger vehicle. The camera system even stays active when you put it in drive and stays on showing your view ahead as you slowly pull away.
The Rear Cross Traffic Alert even alerts you if someone or something crosses your path by giving you visual warnings and even vibrating the driver’s seat.
Delivered to our door. The Chevy Silverado has a step to get into the bed.
Once you get under way, there are even more features to enjoy. Speaking of Texas summers, how about air-conditioned seats! I have had a vehicle with heated seats before but never air-conditioned seats. They are definitely comfortable and keep you cool.
Plenty of leg room in the back
On the road, the truck has a Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert which monitors your position in the lane and if you start to drift, it will gently correct the steering to move you back towards the middle of your lane. This is not meant to allow you to not drive yourself, but to help avoid drifting into the next lane unintentionally.
Plenty of leg room and floor space
Also, on the road, is the navigation system and OnStar. There is an in-dash GPS navigation system which has a full featured map showing not only the road, but nearby locations such as gas stations, parking, etc. There is also a Heads Up Display which projects on the windshield just under the field of view of the driver but is transparent, so it doesn’t interfere with the driver. It can be set to show the next turn by turn directions from the GPS and has a speed indicator so you can keep your eyes on the road instead of constantly looking down at the speedometer.
The truck also features 4G LTE Wi-Fi with the ability to connect up to 7 devices at once so you can stay connected on the road. Apple Car Play and Android Auto is also built in to the system, allowing you to connect your phone.
When we stopped and turned off the truck, we noticed a reminder that popped up on the dashboard to check your rear seats, definitely a good idea.
Finally, there is the storage. In addition to the bed, there is ample storage room inside the cab. The center console had enough space for two gallon bottles of water, and the back seat folded up to reveal storage spaces large enough to put our tripod as well as my backpack.
I had plenty of legroom (I’m somewhat tall at 6’), and whomever was sitting behind me had ample legroom even with my seat pushed back all the way.
Overall, the Chevy truck impressed in all areas. I was even pleasantly surprised as the gas gauge didn’t seem to move
quickly as I have seen with other V8 trucks I have had in the past and was expecting this one to do as well. We drove, it seemed all over the place, and still had plenty of gas.
