Driving Your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in the Snow

You’re probably no stranger to the harsh Colorado winters. Luckily many Chevrolet vehicles are well-suited to winter driving, especially the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

  • Use your Drive Mode Selector: If you opted for the available Drive Mode Selector, you’ll notice a mode called Snow/Ice. It’s engineered to reduce slipping and boost traction during harsh weather.
  • Consider winter tires: Purchase winter tires: They are the number one safety precaution you can take for slick roads, and the Silverado’s Snow/Ice drive mode works best when paired with these tires.
  • Turn on your lights: Improve your visibility by turning on your Silverado 1500’s available high-intensity LED headlamps so other cars can see you on the road too.
  • Make use of your Durabed: The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s pickup bed has more cargo volume than any competing truck. Pack it with essentials like warm clothes, food, and water in case you get stranded. Stow away tools that could help like shovels, chains, flashlights, flares, and sand.
  • Pay attention: Your Silverado is available with a wide range of active safety features like the StabiliTrak stability control system and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert. Remember that they are no substitute for your full attention during driving, but they certainly help.
