2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Overview

Heavy duty trucks have to play the role of the family vehicle as well as that of a dependable workhorse. A shining example of this blend of comfort and capability is the redesigned 2020 Chevrolet 2500HD. Competitors include other heavy-duty trucks like the Ford F-250 and Ram Heavy Duty.

The exterior design of the Silverado HD takes truck styling in a bold new direction. Depending on the trim, large Chevrolet lettering replaces the simple bowtie. And everything around the new split-bar grille is different, taking some inspiration from the redesigned Chevrolet Camaro, with thin LED headlights above the grille's bar and large, defined grille elements. The sculpted hood has an integrated hood scoop, providing improved airflow to the engine.

Overall, the 2020 Silverado HD is wider, longer, and taller than the outgoing model. There are three cab styles: regular cab, double cab, and crew cab. The crew cab's wheelbase has been stretched by 5.2 inches. The Silverado HD is also available with a power tailgate, which drivers can operate via a button in the cab or remotely with the key fob.

The cabin of the Silverado 2500HD is spacious and functional, carrying over the layout of the controls from the previous version of the truck. Trims for the Silverado 2500 HD include Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country. The Work Truck, designed for the worksite, comes with 17-inch wheels and large Chevrolet lettering across the black split-bar grille.

The Custom trim is a new addition to the HD lineup, offering body-color trim details and standard 20-inch wheels. The LT trim has the head-turning Chevrolet flow-through grille and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Moving up to the LTZ adds plenty of brightwork, including a chrome grille, along with LED head- and taillights and standard 18-inch alloy wheels. The LTZ is available with 20-inch alloy wheels. The High Country is the range-topping trim, featuring a two-tone exclusive grille design with chrome slats, as well as LED headlights and standard 20-inch alloy wheels.

There are two engines available for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD: a gas-powered 6.6-liter V8 and a turbo-diesel 6.6-liter V8. The gas engine makes 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, while the Duramax turbo-diesel engine makes 445 horsepower and an incredible 910 pound-feet of torque. The gas engine pairs to a 6-speed automatic transmission, while the diesel engine gets a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Power gets sent to the rear wheels or available four-wheel drive (4WD) with low range. When properly equipped, the Silverado 2500HD can tow up to 18,600 pounds with the diesel engine.

The 2020 Silverado 2500HD has plenty of tools designed for getting work done. It is available with a new integrated power take-off (PTO). Offered as an option on the diesel version, a PTO system allows for users to hook up power equipment, eliminating the need for an aftermarket PTO system. The 2500HD also features a front end optimized for easier plow mounting.

The Silverado 2500HD comes with a full array of front- and side-impact airbags, traction control, a tire-pressure-monitoring system, and a reversing camera. The Silverado 2500HD is also available with a trailering camera system. With multiple cameras, it can project up to 15 different views, including views of any trailers the Silverado 2500HD may tow.

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD will go on sale this summer.
