If the massive power of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty is what you need to get the job done, you’re going to see some improvements that you might not expect.
This truck is one that’s been used in previous model years as the power monster that can help get the job done and give you the ability to pull a larger load wherever you need to go. In order to bring in more airflow to the engine of the new 2019 version of this truck, the Chevrolet team looked to the performance arm of the brand to find what they needed.
Starting in 2014, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was built with a different appearance up front to bring more airflow in the engine. this was accomplished by cutting out the bowtie badge to block the flow of air less than in the past. This badge is now standard and called the “flowtie” badge and its used for the 2018 version of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Why does this matter when we’re talking about the Silverado? Because this “flowtie” badge will make its way to the front of the Heavy Duty models offered of this truck.
Making the Air Move
The flowtie is an elegant solution that most people won’t notice right away and others may look at and think there’s something wrong with the truck. The use of this hollowed-out badge allows for improved performance of the engine and a lowering of the engine fluid temperatures in much the same way as it works in the Camaro. This new addition to the truck will allow you to have more power and performance from the Heavy Duty model of what you want to drive when you head out on the road.
The new lineup of models of this truck was unveiled in March to give you the GCWR from 15,000 for the Class 4 models up to 22,9000 pounds for the Class 6 version of this truck. The most powerful version of the Heavy Duty Silverado will make use of the 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine that’s able to provide you with 350 horsepower and 700 lb.-ft. of torque while being mated to an Allison transmission with the Power Take Off option. This powertrain will allow you to have the right way to enjoy the drive and experience the power desired from under the hood.
The pricing offered for these big and strong trucks that feature this sporty flowtie badge at the front will be announced during the summer ahead of the production run. Thee trucks are the ones that will offer the increased power and performance to handle the work that you want to accomplish.
