Chevrolet Announces 2020 Chevy Silverado HD
Jeez, it’s only been a few weeks since the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was showcased by the General Motors Corporation. With many trim levels for the 2019 model year and many powertrains, consumers could get a Silverado pickup truck designed for their needs and purposes. Around the same time, the Chevrolet Silverado was voted as “Truck of the Year” by editors and writers from _ AutoGuide _ who took the Chevy Silverado for a test drive. Well, Chevrolet must be listening to their consumers, because soon after they unveiled the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD was announced to debut in February 2019.
For those keeping count, this is the _ third _ all-new Silverado model from Chevrolet in just 18 months. Being the HD model, not only is it a very capable pickup truck of the lineup, but the 2020 model is said to be the _ most _ _ capable _ and _ advanced _ Silverado HD _ ever _ . Just another Silverado model to appeal to the variety of Chevrolet customers…or is it?
Set to be built at the Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Michigan, the new Silverado HD will be starting off with a bolder body sculpted for the heavy-duty functionality it gets its name for. Although some may confuse it with the Silverado 1500, aside from the roof, every piece of sheet metal is exclusive to Silverado HD. Built from the ground-up, this assembly plant is going to have a lot of work to meet the standards of Chevrolet and Chevrolet consumers.
“We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers…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.” – Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD.
When it comes to towing capabilities, consumers can get the right power from two new powertrain choices for the 2020 Silverado HD. For 2020, an all-new gasoline engine with direct injection and mated to a six-speed transmission is being designed, along with the Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8, able to deliver 910 lb-ft of torque and paired with an Allison 10-speed transmission. Plus, consumers will be offered new, customer-focused trailering technology with the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD, making significant increases to the towing and payload capabilities of the truck as well as the convenience for the consumer.
General Motors has been the best-selling truck manufacturer for the past four years, having sold more than 600,000 pickup trucks. With the Silverado being the most successful truck franchise in the industry over the last four years, Chevrolet and General Motors are putting everything into the design, comfort, and capability of the new 2020 Silverado HD.
