The forthcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD was spotted a couple of months ago wearing the camouflage and lugging a huge trailer. From the spy shots, we had an opportunity to see the totally exposed interior. According to the same spy photos, new Silverado 3500HD will get an all-new interior design. That will be the biggest upgrade for the arriving model. However, the exterior will host some updates as well. Even mechanical changes will happen and the new model should be the best one yet.
If you are looking for a big pickup truck with astonishing hauling and towing capabilities, Silverado 3500HD is one of the best options. The heavy-duty pickup will be heavily based on the lighter Silverado 1500. This is a good thing as the Silverado 1500 is one of the best-looking pickups ever made. However, the all-new interior will be relatively the same as 3500HD will definitely borrow a lot of cues from its lighter sibling. The new interior will host more upscale materials than before and we can expect further technology updates.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is based on the current Silverado 1500 pickup truck
The upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD will host a very sporty and unique exterior design. It will be based on the current Silverado 1500 pickup truck. However, the front styling will depart from that. The redesigned grille is perhaps the most significant improvement up front. The front fascia is generally more pronounced and the bowtie logo is gone.
Instead of that, a Chevy’s name is running across the grille section in capital letters. The headlights will be more sculpting and will sit slightly higher than before. The fog lights are now below the grille. A huge hood scoop is another visible innovation, along with the more muscular character lines. The taillights are now offering LED technology as standard.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD interior changes and updates
While the interior is basically all-new, most of the things will be a carryover. There is only one image available to this date of the interior. However, the current interior is present from 2014 and not that have changed since then. However, the interior will suffer the most upgrades. The central touchscreen now sits between the HVAC vents. Gauge cluster features six-dial functions, along with the speedometer and tachometer.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD will continue to use a column gear selector, but the infotainment screen is all-new. Black and silver plastic materials are still present, some of the customers won’t be happy as this plastic feels cheap. However, everything looks much simpler now as the layout of the controls is much more practical.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD will offer two powerful engines
As we wrote, the spy shots are providing the photos of the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD. On these photos, the pickup is wearing a camouflage while lugging a big trailer. The 3500HD model is made for hauling and towing and it is its main purpose. For that reason, new Silverado 3500HD will offer two powerful engines.
Both of them are a carryover from the current model. A 6.0-liter V8 gasoline powertrain remains the standard choice on the base model.
The more interesting option is, of course, a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8. Chevy is saying that the pickup will offer record-breaking torque numbers. That means the diesel engine will produce around 450 horses and around 910 lb-ft of torque.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD price and release date
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD will arrive with the slightly higher price than the current model. That means the upcoming model will cost around $30,000. However, upper trims will cost $50,000 and more. This pickup truck will arrive later in 2019, most likely in the fall.
