The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado may be an all-new vehicle that shares very little with the old model, but pricing for the new pickup truck will closely resemble that of the outgoing variant.

The 2019 Silverado Work Truck starts at $31,290, which includes the $1,495 destination fee. That trim comes with a 4.3-liter V6, rear-wheel drive, a regular cab, and a long bed. Using Chevrolet's configurator, it looks like pricing has gone down by $400 from last year. At the other end of the spectrum, a range-topping Silverado High Country crew cab with a short bed and a 6.2-liter V8 engine starts at $55,990 including destination. Pricing for that trim has gone up by $1,000 from last year.

Chevrolet's high-volume LT trim, which is in the middle of the pack, has gone down in price. Pricing for that trim starts at $39,890 – $700 less than last year's model. That's for the double cab model with a standard bed. The trim also gets the new turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four and eight-speed automatic transmission.

Just like last year, the new Silverado is available in a dizzying amount of configurations. There are eight trims, three cab sizes (regular, double, and crew), three bed lengths (long, standard, and short), six engines, three transmissions, and two drivetrain options (two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive).

The automaker didn't provide a full list of standard and available options for the Silverado, but did state that a Z71 Off-Road Equipment Package would be available on all trims. The package includes a two-inch lift, Rancho monotube shocks, and Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac all-terrain tires. The Trail Boss trim gets the package as standard.

Other available options include a two-speed transfer case, an automatic locking rear differential, low speed automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

If you were hoping to get into a Silverado with one of the new powertrains, you'll have to wait a bit. Chevrolet stated that the first pickup trucks will be equipped with the 5.3-liter V8 and the 6.2-liter V8.

The 2019 Silverado will go on sale later this fall. For a full breakdown of the new Silverado's pricing, check out the chart below (all prices include the $1,495 destination charge):
