This Lego 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Looks Just Like the Real Thing

As a promotion for the newest Lego-themed movie, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Chevrolet has revealed a full-scale version of the 2019 Silverado 1500 pickup made entirely from the tiny bricks. Debuting this week during the public days of the Detroit auto show, the Lego Silverado is the result of more than 2000 hours of work from 18 Lego master builders.

The Silverado is made up of 334,544 individual pieces, with Chevy saying the most common brick used was the red two-by-eight-inch piece-not a surprise, as the model takes the form of a red LT Trail Boss with long bed. The Lego model is shockingly accurate compared with the real thing in its size and design; it even has working lights. Where it can't match up to a real Silverado, though, is when it comes to weight. While the Lego Silverado weighs a hefty 3307 pounds—almost as much as a turbo-four Chevy Camaro—it's a far cry from the 5502-pound curb weight of the V-8 Silverado High Country we recently tested.

This isn't the first time that Chevrolet has teamed up with Lego for a movie: In 2017, the bow-tie brand designed the Batmobile for The Lego Batman Movie and debuted a full-scale version of it at the Detroit auto show. Regarding the new movie tie-in, a Chevy spokesperson said, "the themes of determination and teamwork in the new movie align perfectly with our Chevy brand values," but it does not seem like the Silverado actually appears in the film.

While the Lego Silverado is impressive in its accuracy and scope, it can't touch the Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron that was revealed last summer. That full-scale creation was made from over one million individual pieces and employed 2304 Technic electric motors to actually be able to move under its own power.
