Chevy is going all out in its pursuit of making the best trucks on the market, and the latest evidence of its quest is the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. The new Silverado HD hits the market later this year as the most capable of its kind ever made thanks to new engines, new innovations, and new technologies.
“We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD. “We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier.”
When it hits, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will hold several advantages over the competition with exclusive features like a new Allison® 10-speed transmission for the 6.6-liter Duramax® V8, which enables a 52 percent increase in max towing to a total of 35,500 pounds. It will also be the only truck in the segment offered with an Autotrac® automatic two-speed transfer case, 120-volt bed-mounted power outlet, head-up display, and Power Up/Down Tailgate.
Additional highlights include significant improvements to box length, width, and volume, including best-in-class 83.5 cubic feet of cargo volume for the 8-foot long box. Like the 2019 Silverado 1500, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD gets a new DuraBed with roll-formed steel construction. In addition to bold new looks and larger dimensions, the new Silverado HD also gets an updated 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that offers 22 percent more torque and 18 percent more max towing capabilities than the outgoing 6.0-liter V8 gas engine.
There’s a lot to consider with the exciting, all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD, so keep your eyes peeled to learn when you can expect to see it and experience it in person at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow.
