Chevrolet launches the online configurator for the new 2020 Silverado HD trucks. The configuration options are currently limited to crew cab 2500 and 3500 trucks. There is no option yet to configure a 3500 dually, shorter double cab, or regular cab trucks yet.

The online configurator lets you see all trim levels for the 2500 and 3500 series trucks. It also allows to switch between the “standard” 6-foot 10-inch bed and a full 8-foot bed. The long bed option in a single-rear-wheel costs just $200.
The 2500 HD trucks can be configured in WT, LT, Custom, LTZ, and High Country trim levels. If you are looking for the most affordable 4×4 truck, you can configure a base WT crew cab with 4×4 and a Z71 off-road package for $43,220. This includes the new 6.6-liter gas V8 with the 6-speed automatic transmission. The power rating is 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque.
The Z71 package offers off-road tuned suspension, hill descent control, skid plates, and special tires.
One of my favorite trucks is a Custom trim level truck that has unique wheel design and body-color grille. The truck can be configured with an optional 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 with 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
By the way, the pricing has not yet been announced for the optional Power Take-Off (PTO) unit on the 10-speed transmission.
Of course, if you must have it all then the fully-loaded High Country model is what you should be looking at. This truck start in the $60,000+ range, but the diesel engine and most of the options bring the final total to around $78,000 for a 2500 HD diesel 4×4 with a long bed. If you need more payload, a similarly configured 3500 HD 4×4 single rear wheel truck will retails for close to $80,000.
