    2019 Chevrolet Silverado

    GM’s Signature Truck Gets a Light-Weight Upgrade

    Availability, MSRP, and MPG to be Released at a Later Date.

    Significant Weight Loss… 2019 Silverado models will be up to 450 lbs lighter, even though the length, interior space, and truck bed are all larger than the 2018 model

    …is the Result of Significant Investment GM reportedly spent $3B updating its factories in Fort Wayne, IN and Mexico to produce the new truck. By comparison, Ford spent about $2B on investment for the Aluminum F-150

    Taking the Fight to Ford’s F-150 Staying true to their commercials, the bed is made of roll formed, high strength steel, not aluminum

    A 3.0L inline six diesel option will be offered, competing with the F-150’s 30 mpg diesel option announced earlier this month

    Majority of weight savings comes from frame and body

    80% of the frame is high

    strength steel

    – The right material in the right place for the right use

    GM’s Mixed Materials Strategy

  • Confidential 5

    Bigger, Stronger, Lighter Overall length is 9’’ longer than the previous model, including 4’’ of additional cab space

    98% of the frame is made of high strength steel, but the overall weight of the vehicle decreased 225 lbs primarily due to an aluminum hood and tailgate

    2019 Dodge Ram 1500

    FCA Attempts to Lure New Truck Drivers with Enhanced Technology and Styling

    Availability, MSRP, and MPG to be Released at a Later Date.

    Not Quite the Tesla Screen, But Close Offers an optional 12’’ touchscreen that’s brighter than the iPhone with split-screen capabilities and customizable app layout. By comparison, options for Tesla’s Model 3 screen are 15’’ or 17’’

    Increased Fuel Efficiency with a 48-Volt Motor The 2019 Ram comes standard with new eTorque mild- hybrid tech, which puts a 48-volt motor on the accessory drive. The motor improves fuel economy by enabling start/stop and providing extra torque when needed

    How Does it Work? Adjusts the compression ratio to optimize performance and efficiency based on the driver’s demands
