The Most Advanced Silverado HD Makes its Debut

The redesigned 2020 Silverado HD has a chiseled appearance, looks tough, and stands above the crowd. The heavy-duty hauler is set to go on sale in only a few short months.

Redefining Heavy-Duty

Built in the Flint Assembly plant located in Flint, Michigan, the all-new Silverado HD has a bold, sculpted appearance that follows suit to the enhanced heavy-duty function, differentiating from the light-duty Silverado.

“We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer of the Silverado HD.

In fact, the exterior of the 2020 Silverado HD is only similar to the Silverado 1500 in one way — the roof. This means the other exterior components are unique to the all-new Silverado HD.

“As such, we built a heavy-duty truck tailor-made for them that has more differentiation than ever before from light-duty models, offers advanced towing technologies to improve towing confidence and includes new features such as the integrated Bedstep, which makes it easier to access the bed while pulling a fifth-wheel trailer,” Jaclyn McQuaid continued to say about the full-size pickup.

Designed to visually encapsulate the power and capability of a truck, the updated model looks like a heavy piece of machinery with modern, chiseled finishes. The third all-new Silverado model in a mere 18 months is designed specifically for heavy-duty truck customers.

Under the hood, consumers can choose between two new powertrains. The first, an all-new gasoline engine with direct injection integrated in a six-speed transmission. Or the Duramax turbo-diesel V8, which delivers 910 lbs. per foot of torque through the new Allison 10-speed transmission.

The 2020 Chevy Silverado HD also offers customer-focused trailering technology with significant increases in towing and payload capabilities.

Dominating the front end is a new mesh grille with “Chevrolet” at its center, so there’s no question what vehicle is dominating the road.

Other features are subtler, like the chiseled hood with a chrome-tipped scoop and easier access to the bed with a rear step integration into the rear bumper.

The interior benefits from architectural updates made to the Silverado 1500, including an additional 3 inches of legroom in the crew cab models. Passengers will also benefit from a taller, more comfortable seating position.

The 2020 Chevy Silverado HD will be in the DePaula Chevrolet showroom later this year. Stay tuned for more details about the all-new full-size pickup truck.
