2020 Silverado HD designed to resemble ‘heavy machinery, with chiseled finishes and customer-focused details.’When the 2020 Silverado HD debuts in February 2019 it will be the most capable and most advanced Silverado HD ever. It will also be the third all-new Silverado model from Chevrolet in just 18 months each designed for different customers.&quot;We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers,&quot; said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD. &quot;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.&quot;Built at the Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Mich., the new Silverado HD&quot;s design has a bold, sculpted form that follows its enhanced heavy-duty function, differentiating it from the light-duty Silverado. In fact, the 2020 Silverado HD exterior shares only the roof with its Silverado 1500 stablemate every other piece of sheet metal is exclusive to Silverado HD.&nbsp;ALSO SEE: 2019 Silverado Towing Test Review&nbsp;&quot;We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck,&quot; said Brian Izard, lead exterior designer for Silverado HD. &quot;The result is a truck that looks like a piece of heavy machinery with modern, chiseled finishes and customer-focused details.&quot;The interior benefits from similar architectural changes made to the all-new Silverado 1500, including an additional three inches of legroom on crew cab models and a taller, more comfortable seating position.Under the 2020 Silverado HD&quot;s hood is a choice of two new powertrains: an all-new gasoline engine with direct injection mated to a six-speed transmission, or the Duramax Turbo-Diesel V-8, which delivers 910 lb-ft of torque through an all-new, Allison 10-speed transmission.The 2020 Silverado HD also will offer all-new customer-focused trailering technology, significant increases in towing and payload capabilities and a host of technologies and features designed specifically for heavy-duty truck customers. #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ <br style="clear: both" /> <br style="clear: both" />
