Round Two of Chevrolet and LEGO

MT. PLEASANT, Mich -- In 2017, a partnership between Warner Bros. and Chevrolet was forged to bring the LEGO Batmobile from Chevy to life. At the opening of the North American Auto Show, these brands released a new partnership: an exact, life-size replica of the all-new, 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, which will eventually make an appearance in mini-build form in the Lego Movie sequel, coming to theatres on February 8th. 

The life-size project was built by eighteen specially-trained LEGO master builders. Hand-selecting and placing each of the 334, 544 blocks took over 2,000 hours, but all that sweat and time was worth it. The finished model features such realistic details as working lights and graphic design features straight off the real-life Silverado. Full LEGO Silverado specs are listed below.

  • The model is 72 inches high, 240 inches long, and 96 inches wide
  • It weighs 3, 307 pounds
  • The most common brick used was the 2x8 stud brick
  • It was designed and assembled in the LEGO Group's model shop in Enfield, Connecticut
Chevrolet is thrilled about this fun collaboration, with Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing stating: 

"Chevrolet is once again thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. to integrate the brand and one of our most iconic products - Silverado - into the 'LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part'...the themes of determination and teamwork in the new movie align perfectly with our Chevy brand values, and we are sure that the all-new Silverado has the features, technologies, and strength that would help Emmett, Lucy and their friends as they take on exciting new challenges."
