2019 Silverado 1/2 Ton Getting A Diesel...

GM hasn't really advertised it, but the new 2019 Silverado will be getting a 3.0 liter Duramax, along with other engine choices (3.6 V6 being one of them). It will be interesting to see how it does against the Ram, the Titan, and the F-150.

I'm not a huge fan of the redesign, it reminds me of the Tundra for some reason.

All of the new trucks are nice, but too expensive. Iím lucky to live on the west coast, where nice used, rust free examples are everywhere you look. There is no need for someone like me to buy new.

If someone didnít need new, it would be worth consider a trip out here. Fly out, then drive home. Craigslist is full of trucks in almost any configuration, with a rental car and a willingness to drive you could probably find something in a few days. The market is switching to small and midsize SUVís so there should be deals available.

There is probably at least one or two later model truck on every suburban block. For the most part they havenít seen a hard life, an occasional trip to the hardware store or dumps, most of the 4wdís have never been driven over anything bigger than a speed bump. My 2001 Silverado has lived outside since new and doesnít have a spec of rust, including the undercarriage.

Someone has told me that once before, I know of people that have gone to Texas to buy trucks because go their condition.

Rust isn't as bad here as it is in say, Michigan, but it's bad enough.

Re: 2019 Silverado 1/2 Ton Getting A Diesel...

With the cost of new trucks so high, it makes sense to travel and buy something thatís seen a lot of depreciation, especially if you are generally a long term owner. I have a friend that buys a new F150 4x4 4 door with eco boost every two years. He races it about 20 Wednesday nights a year, then sells it and buys another. I think those are $60,000+ range new, he usually gets in the mid to high-20ís for his old one.

They run in the $40,000 range, unless you get the luxury packages.

I love me some Chevelles, but I'm a blue oval guy when it comes to newer vehicles.

Re: 2019 Silverado 1/2 Ton Getting A Diesel...

Mid to high 20's is a real good deal for a 2 year or so old F150 4 door eco boost truck IMO and well worth a plane ride and a few nights at a hotel/motel & rental car

He does.

His friends are the track line up to buy his old trucks. He sells the bases off of what the dealership will give him as a trade in.

I wouldn't want to deal with a modern diesel in a daily driver.
