To complement the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, Air Design USA has released an off-road series body kit, complete with Front Bumper Guard, DRL Roof Pods, Fender Flares, Rocker Panels, Door Moldings, Hood Scoop, Rear Tailgate Spoiler and Appliqué. Each piece is precision-engineered as part of a sophisticated digital workflow that includes 3D CAD modeling and full-scale CAM and CNC prototyping for a custom-crafted fit on the Ranger. Furthermore, it’s backed by Air Design USA’s longstanding history of continued innovation, superior design, and easy installation.
“Chevy made a bold move in the redesign of its classic Silverado. As a designer, I have a lot of respect for taking calculated risks to reinvent the look and feel of traditional vehicle styling,” says Billy Longfellow, VP of Design and Engineering at Air Design USA.
The 2019 Silverado offers six powertrain combinations, including an overhaul of the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s, a new Dynamic Fuel Management system, and eight different trim packages. Yet one of Chevrolet’s biggest accomplishments is a truck platform that measures 1.6 inches longer, yet weighs 88 pounds lighter than the previous model year—the latter of which was achieved by utilizing aluminum for the bed and body work. As a result, the wheelbase has been expanded by nearly four inches, while standing 1.5 inches higher, and the pickup has shed 450 lbs. in total. Additionally, a new stamping technique gives the steel bed a full seven inches of extra width, no matter what cab configuration.
“Customers will be pleased to see just how well our off-road series full body kit accentuates the larger, wider stance and oversized grille of the all-new Silverado,” he adds. “As one of the top three selling trucks across America, this is a kit that aftermarket shops want to have in stock to wow their customers on the spot.”
