WHAT’S NEW IN THE 2020 CHEVY SILVERADO HD LINEUP?
We told you about the towing capabilities of the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD earlier, and now we want to dive into some of the other highlights of this mighty truck. The automaker “set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none,” chief engineer of the Silverado HD Jaclyn McQuaid said in a press release. According to the photos and specifications released by Chevy, that certainly looks to be the case! The truck is seeing a lot of updates for the 2020 model year. What’s new in the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD lineup? Read ahead for more details.
Updates on the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD
The new Silverado HD is longer, wider, and taller than the previous Silverado HD model. Its wheelbase has also been extended by 5.2 inches on Crew Cab models. You’ll be able to find five different trims of the 2020 Silverado: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country. Between them there are 22 different cab, bed, chassis and driveline configurations to choose from.
The standard engine is a new 6.6-liter V-8 gasoline engine that dishes out 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. There’s also an available Duramax 6.6-liter V-8 Turbo-Diesel engine that produces an impressive 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. The diesel engine is paired with the all-new Allison® 10-speed transmission, and when combined with the improved driveline components transfers the torque to the pavement in exquisite fashion, and that means more torque for lower gears, which means better driving dynamics for you.
Have you seen the new Chevy Blazer?
For those interested in using the 2020 Silverado HD for removing snow, you’ll be happy to know that there is a more intuitive snow plow package, where the front end has been designed for easier removal of the air dam and skid plate so you can more easily mount the plow. All 2500HD and 3500HD models have new and larger door-mounted trailering mirrors which extend and retract for easier operation. There’s also a new forward-facing spot lamp on each mirror that can shine light at a 45-degree angle to provide better illumination where you need it.
Finally, because the truck is taller, you’ll have a higher seating position as well, making for an even more commanding presence on the road, and the available head-up display that shows relevant information in front of you on the windshield will come in handy with every drive.
