5 Things to Know Everything You Want to Know About the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Everything You Want to Know About the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

This, is the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. It’s, hmm, different to say the least, and we’re still trying to figure out how we feel about it. 

Actually, that’s a lie. But first, we should point out that the new Silverado HD will once more raise the limits of what is possible when it comes to doing Heavy Duty things with a pickup.

910 Lb.Ft. of Torque is Right

Buyers of the towering behemoth will be able to select between two new powertrains. For serious work, the Duramax is back with more power and torque (910 lb.-ft.) than ever and it will be mated to an all-new Allison 10-speed transmission.

An equally all-new direct injection gasoline engine, rumored to be a Navistar-sourced 6.6-liter V-8 from MD Trucks, will makes its debut with the new HD. It will be paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

We expect that this new 2020 Chevy Silverado HD will return best-in-class everything ratings before long and this, despite the Duramax being down 25 torques when compared to Ford’s Power Stroke – Allison knows transmissions.

Styling-wise, the new HD is, well, here’s how Brian Izard, lead exterior designer for Silverado HD, put it: “We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck. The result is a truck that looks like a piece of heavy machinery with modern, chiseled finishes and customer-focused details.”

In every which way but one, we agree. Where we take offense is with the front fascia that does just about everything wrong. All the physical bits surrounding the headlights look haphazardly added on. The grille is exaggerated even for an exaggerated vehicle and the “Chevrolet” brow is either too high or too low. But what do we know about design?

The 2020 Silverado HD goes on sale in mid-2019. Pricing information and further details will become available between now and then.
