The 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is an all-new model. Check out all the changes before you head to the dealerships. But, if you liked its predecessors, then the new heavy-duty truck is a no-brainer. The 2020 YM is way better in all ways – styling, safety, comfort, performance.
The HD class received updates after the full-size segment. The connection between 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD and the Silverado 1500 is pretty tight. This time, not too much visually. The heavy-duty model offers plenty of options, starting from a cabin and bed, trim levels, up to engines. Here are available upgrades for the new model.
Engines – Petrol and Diesel
The 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is coming with a 6.6-liter petrol drivetrain. The powerplant is capable to produce 400 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is a power router. Automatic locking differentials will lock the power to rear wheels. A two-speed transfer case is allowing the driver to select one of the four drive modes: 2WD, 4WD, 4WD Lo, and Auto.
The diesel engine is the unit truckers are a dream of. Properly equipped, the new Silverado 3500HD can tow over 30,000 pounds. A 6.6-liter Duramax V8 engine returns a monstrous amount of torque (910 lb-ft). It also produces 445 horsepower and pairs a 10-speed Allison transmission.
2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Configurations
You can pick the 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD with either Double Cab or Crew Cab. However, the bed length can be only long if you choose the first one. Crew Cab offers both Long and Short bed. The longest model is Crew Cab Long Box (266 in), while the short bed cuts 10 inches.
After you choose a suitable configuration, the next step is to pick a trim level. All selections are offering four trim levels – WT, LT, LTZ, and High Country. The company didn’t make the dual-rear-wheel option available yet. But, if you want to get a max towing capacity from the 2020 Silverado 3500HD, then make sure you take this package.
The new heavy-duty truck is updating colors and optional packages. Besides the standard paintjobs, there are two premium schemes – Cajun Red Tintcoat and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat. Depending on a trim level, there are additional options for the cabin. Technology Package and 5th wheel Suite are recommended upgrades.
2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Prices, Competition
The base cost of the 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is just under $40,000 (Double Cab, Long Bed, 2WD, petrol engine). The most expensive gasoline version includes 4WD, Crew Cab, and High Country trim. Without upgrades, its MSRP is $65,000. Add a diesel unit and that is a wise $10k investment. Well, you will need this version if you want a DRW and maximum towing capacity.
The competition for the 2020 Silverado 3500 comes from main rival companies. Ford F-350 and Ram 3500HD are also updated for the new season. Towing capacities are similar, as well as outputs and prices. At the high ends, small details will be decisive, as well as buyers’ preferences.
