Pickup trucks feature specific engineering to tackle the toughest jobs. Chevrolet recently debuted the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD and it’s the most capable Silverado HD yet.
This marks the third all-new Silverado in 18 months, with this version being longer, wider, and taller than its predecessor. Its maximum towing capacity increases by 52 percent to 35,500 pounds.
“We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer for the Silverado HD. “We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier.”
The Silverado HD will offer five trim levels – Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country – along with 22 cab, bed, chassis, and driveline configurations to craft the ideal heavy-duty truck for your needs.
It also comes with two powertrain options. The first is a standard 6.6-liter V8 gas-powered engine that comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, producing 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. For the second engine option, you find a Duramax 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8, which works with an all-new Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission and generates 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. To make towing easier, this heavy-duty truck features a range of new Advanced Trailer System technologies and transparent trailer view to boost your confidence while towing.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will be on sale this summer. Until then, take a closer look at our Silverado selection at ELCO Chevrolet.
