2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is the new heavy-duty pickup truck

The forthcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will arrive next fall and it will look astonishing. The heavy-duty truck will look very similar to the current Silverado 1500 pickup. Chevy gave us a teaser image that provides more than enough information about the new Silverado HD.

It is clear that the 2020 Silverado HD comes with larger proportions and bolder exterior design. The interior is heavily-based on the Silverado 1500 model which is a good thing. Under the hood, the things aren’t that clear, however, Chevy is likely to keep two V8 powertrains. Furthermore, those two engines will get a slight update for better-towing capability.

The exterior of the forthcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will look really attractive. Unlike a much subtle 1500 version, the HD variant will arrive with bolder design and larger proportions. According to the teaser image, we could easily recognize that this is a Chevy’s design language. Not only the letters are showing us the Chevrolet’s masterpiece but we could also see chrome trims on the front grille.

However, the famous bowtie badge is gone and it is replaced by the “Chevrolet” lettering on the grille. The same styling cue as on the Ford F-150 Raptor. Moreover, the front end adds angular LED lights and split headlights. A massive hood scoop is visible as well, something the Silverado 1500 doesn’t have. Of course, massive hood scoop should provide better air cooling to a much powerful engine.

The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will offer an interior based on the regular 1500 model. Literally, everything is the same, from the center stack to the same use of displays and knobs. With that in mind, it is easy to figure it out how the interior will look. Firstly, a multi-function steering wheel looks nice and the 7.0-inch touchscreen is standard. Furthermore, the latest infotainment system is in the offer, along with the same layout of the seats and the controls.

Perhaps the only difference is the interior room, as the Silverado HD offers larger dimensions than the standard Silverado 1500. Cloth seats are standard, but you can opt for the optional leather upholstery. The rest of the interior will largely depend on the trim levels, which are yet to be announced.

The details about the engine of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD are still unclear. Teaser images are suggesting that the Chevy will keep the current engine lineup. That means a 6.0-liter V8 gasoline unit will come as standard. A 6.6-liter V8 diesel will be optional and will get an update for even better tow rating.

Unfortunately, we don’t know that will those updates do to the current engines. Of course, much better figures are a must for the Chevy and the new Dynamic Fuel Management system will provide better fuel economy.
