The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD represents the pinnacle of technology and capability – according to General Motors. This is an extremely important truck for the brand, with the recently low public opinion, having a successful heavy-duty truck is paramount.
Check out the configurations for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado (here).
Our tester, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 High Country, is part of General Motors rollout of all new trucks. It is a new platform, new body, new power plants and greater capability throughout. The tech-level has gone up and there’s even 15 different camera views on the available high-end infotainment system. On paper, these heavy duty pickup trucks are now far more competitive with Ford and Ram.
Two engines and two transmissions are available for the heavy duty. There is a brand new 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 that produces 445 horsepower making 910 lb-ft of torque. It’s bolted to a 10-speed automatic transmission. There is also a 6.6-liter gas V8 with a “heavy duty” 6-speed automatic transmission. It makes 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque.
We recently had an opportunity to take the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 High Country through some towing evaluations against the competition. You can read about that (here).
Interestingly, fans are asking us for a more detailed look into this truck. In many cases, fans (and truck people in general) felt that the interior was already dated. We decided to take a pragmatic approach and show you everything we see inside this new truck.
Watch the video and see for yourself how unique this truck is. Do you fall on the “unique“ side? What about the “polarizing“ side? Do you love it or hate it? The controversy over this truck is real and there are certainly a lot of opinions about this vehicle.
That’s for sure.
