Spy photos of the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD are already available. The new series of 2500, 3500, and 4500 trucks are coming. The heavy-duty segment is heading into a new generation. Well, the work mules are not so popular as its smaller sibling, Silverado 1500. The half-tone truck launches new generation next season, and right after it, Chevrolet will do the same with heavy-duty pickups.
Teaser images, spy shots, rumors, and official hints are trying to give us clues of what to expect from 2020 Chevy Silverado HD. First of all, fans should prepare for the new front fascia. Also, the interior is going to suffer some changes. Engineers won’t have so much work for 2020 Chevrolet Silverado heavy-duty segment since trucks will use the same drivetrains as before. Well, it remains to see what kind of drivetrain Silverado 4500 will use. Also, is it going to take another name – Kodiak?
2020 Chevy Silverado HD Specs
Two engines are making the lineup for a new generation. Both petrol and diesel units will come back to 2020 Chevy Silverado HD. The first one is less potent, so most heavy-duty trucks are purchased with a turbodiesel engine.
That is not a surprise since Duramax drivetrain is going to produce 450 horses. For the next generation of Chevrolet Silverado HD trucks, torque output will get a 20-lb-ft boost. It will make these trucks most potent on the market. Also, twisting power will improve towing capacity. By using aluminum and other lightweight materials, the HD lineup will lose some pounds, making it more economical.
The base and cheaper trucks will use a petrol engine. It is a 6.0-liter V-8. Some variants can consume CNG. In such versions, the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD will be able to create 300 hp. Conventional drivetrain makes 60 more horses and 380 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Chevy Silverado HD Redesign and Interior
The redesign of the next-gen truck starts from the front fascia. A new grille was teased some while ago. By replacing bow tie with Chevrolet logo the company will make a big change. Well, images also show that is a Z71 version, but the same grille could be on the standard trim levels.
The cabin of the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD will get all standard features as its predecessor. Well, we will need to wait for the entire Silverado 1500 lineup to appear to compare these two trucks. Most of the features from a smaller pickup will be carried over to the bigger sibling. However, Silverado 2500/3500/4500 are going to offer special equipment for better towing and reliability. The high-end versions, such as High Country, will get premium details. Drivers and passengers will feel like at home.
2020 Chevy Silverado HD Debut
We can expect the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD to have a premiere early next season. Detroit or New York and their auto show are big enough to host such important arrivals. However, we won’t see these trucks in salons before the year 2020. Later in 2019, we will see updates about prices and options for each version and model. Crew Cab and Super Cab configurations are going to be combined with standard or long box. Mega Cab could also be there as a limited time offer.
