The pricing for the 2020 Chevrolet has been released for the Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD pickups. Because of the seemingly unlimited configuration possibilities of beds, cabs, trim levels, powertrains, and option choices arriving at a specific price is best left to the Chevrolet configurator. Here’s what some of the most popular configurations are going forfor. The good news is that the 2020 Chevy Silverado HDs are less than the 2019 models.
Available on the Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims, the 2020 Silverado HD pricing hierarchy leads off with the $35,695 Silverado 2500 regular-cab long-bed. The Work Truck equipped with the new 401-hp 6.6-liter V-8 and an upgraded six-speed automatic transmission. Stepping up to the midlevel LT trim (the regular-cab, long-bed 2500 and 3500 trucks are only available in WT and LT trims) will add $2900 to the bottom line for a base MSRP of $39,595.
Moving right on up to the crew-cab, the short-bed 2500 with single rear wheels, is arguably one of the most popular configurations available, the base pricing sorts out as: the Work Truck for $39,895; the Custom for $42,395; the LT for $43,395; the LTZ for $52,095; and the High Country for $62,695. If you’re opting for a long bed it goes for an extra $200 across the board: the Work Truck will go for $40,095; the Custom for $42,595; the LT for $43,595, the LTZ for $52,295; and the High Country for $62,895.
Chevrolet has not revealed the premium for selecting the Duramax diesel engine and the 10-speed Allison transmission with the 2020 Silverado 2500HD, but it was a $9395 upcharge in the 2019 model year. Pricing for the big-dog one-ton Silverado 3500 follows a similar path. The regular-cab long-bed pickup in Work Truck trim with single rear wheels starts at $36,895; moving to the LT trim brings the MSRP to $40,795.
Jumping on to the crew-cab, the long-bed 3500 has dual rear wheels. The price for the Work Truck for $42,495; the LT for $45,995; the LTZ for $54,695; and the High Country for $65,295. Shoppers wanting to delve into the details on the Silverado HD for their specific needs are motivated to visit the Chevrolet website or the dealership. Keep in mind that the full configurator is not yet available online with all of its options.
All of the Silverado HDs come standard with a refurbished 6.0-liter pushrod V8 which delivers 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque contrasted to the 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque that was in the old one. The optional 6.6-liter diesel V8 has the same output as the 2018 Silverado HD which delivered 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. Towing capacity is also up for both the 2500 and 3500 models.
The Silverado 2500, maximum fifth-wheel towing capacity is now 18,600 pounds. That’s 500 more than last year. The 3500 will tow up to 35,500 pounds with a fifth wheel versus 23,100 for the old model.
The Silverado HD adopted the T1 platform and the styling of the smaller 2019 Silverado 1500. The trucks are to wear a variant of the bold face of the new Silverado half-ton while adopting its convenience improvements and various usability. There is a more aerodynamic cab, more efficient space and a stronger bed, which is significantly lighter in weight, and it also has improved CornerStep bumpers.
The 6.6L Duramax L5P diesel engine, introduced for the 2017 model year Silverado HD, will carry over. Also, a new gasoline engine is expected to replace the archaic 6.0L L96 V-8. The 2020 Silverado HD family is scheduled to launch in the 2019 calendar year as 2020 model year vehicles.
