Chevy's getting ready for the launch of the new Silverado and that doesn't just mean how it leaves the factory.

Aftermarket manufacturers will soon be able to get a look at the new truck and measure it up.

This year's SEMA will have two measuring sessions for the Silverado, and Chevy will host a third in Michigan a few weeks later, on April 24.

The sessions will allow aftermarket manufacturers to take accurate measurements to then develop their own parts and modifications for the Silverado. They will also feature unannounced information, according to a report from GM Authority, meaning that these manufacturers will likely be privy to information before the rest of us.

So far, we know that the 2019 Silverado will be 3.9 inches longer and considerably lighter than the outgoing truck and will also feature the 5.3-liter, 6.2-liter V8s as well as a 3.0-liter Duramax diesel.
