And check out those larger bumper steps and storage boxes

Chevrolet’s all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 is making waves at Detroit thanks to its slick design, new interior, and list of high-tech features. One such feature is the power up/down tailgate. Simply press a button and the tailgate lowers and lifts on its own. Button locations include the tailgate itself, the key fob, and inside the cabin. Chevy is the first to offer such a tailgate. Ford did debut a power-release tailgate on the 2015 F-150, but it doesn’t close on its own. Chevy’s power tailgate is available on the higher trim level trucks and comes standard on the range-topping High Country.

Other new features at the 2019 Silverado’s business end include larger CornerSteps and new in-bed storage boxes. The new bumper steps are said to accommodate steel-toe boots, which should be a hit at the job site. The cargo bed also has available storage boxes that secure to the bed walls. These removable boxes offer lockable and water-tight storage for gear while not impeding on the width of the bed floor. A sheet of 4x8 plywood or drywall will still fit between the wheel wells.

Last but not least, Chevy has added a 120-volt household power outlet inside the bed. The three-pronged outlet will run any power tools or tailgating party equipment.
