The State Fair of Texas in Dallas is really interesting this year. One of the models was also seen in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST Off-Road concept. The RST Off-Road Concept is distinguished off-road equipment and accessories. First of all, it is interesting for rivals from Ford Motor Company.
This concept has a illuminated black grille emblem with Chevy’s “bowtie” logo, and body-color bumpers. They are visible black tailgate lettering, custom black Silverado emblems, a side-mounted bed storage box, and a soft roll-up cover. Also contains aftermarket accessories from Baja Designs. This includes 40-inch LED light bar (top of the pickup’s bed) and specifically the off-road Squadron sports lamps. As far as the interior is concerned, there is a noticeable amount of mostly aesthetic upgrades. Noticeable is a Cajun Red paint finish.
We expect it to be slightly higher than standard models. Overall, the dimensions will not deviate significantly from the current generation. Placed at a new set of 18-inch off-road Carbon Flash wheels, with off-road tires. Currently, it offers a four-door crew cab, designed to accommodate up to six passengers. Of course, we expect higher towing capacity.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST Off-Road concept will have a 5.3-liter V8 EcoTec3 engine, with a cold air intake system. The official characteristics of this engine have not yet been published. First of all, thanks to a two-inch suspension lift kit, we expect a slightly higher production than the standard model. We recall that 2019 Chevy Silverado has 355 hp and 383 lb-ft (519 Nm) of torque. Of course, it offers a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, combined with an 8-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. It is not known whether it will offer an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. Also, we do not have information on fuel consumption. According to some sources, there is a possibility to offer another engine. We hope it is a 3.0-liter I-6 Duramax turbo diesel engine of 260 hp and 442 lb-ft (599 Nm) of torque.
For now, such as the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST Off-Road concept can not be bought. However, it is possible to buy all the accessories from the catalog and upgrade it to a standard model. Of course, this significantly increases the cost.
