The new movies do the same thing. The opening of 5 uses images of both the new and old Graboids even when the new ones weren't known about at the time in universe.
I still think if they were going to use the classic Graboids, they would of shown them. They show stock images of them in the beginning of the trailer, so there's no surprise behind it... Having new versions or stages of the Graboids would be a bigger reveal to keep a secret then the old designs.
I'm betting it would of been explained that the old Graboids are all dead, but these are new creatures that are similar but more dangerous, that are more then what Val is prepared for.
