What To Expect
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was just redesigned for 2019.
Now, it’s the Silverado HD’s turn. We will see a redesigned Silverado HD for
the 2020 model year. This truck will be stronger and more capable than the
current model and will come with advanced technology options.
One of the most impressive things about the new Silverado HD
is its increased towing power. Engineers were able to squeeze an additional 52%
of towing capability into the truck. It now boasts a maximum rating of 35,500
Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD, said, “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.”
There will be two new powertrain options. The standard
engine will be a new 6.6-liter V8 rated at 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of
torque. This is an 11 percent increase in horsepower and a 22 percent increase
in torque, which translates to 18 percent more towing power. For even more
power, there is the available Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 that generates
445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will launch later this year, but we won’t have to wait that long to see what’s new in the heavy-duty truck. Updated engines, a stylish look, and an all-new transmission help the Chevrolet Silverado HD make the jump to comfortable and capable like never before.
A bold new design makes the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD easy to spot on the road. A premium grille and tough horizontal lines give the truck an intimidating presence.
The design is certainly something to talk about, but the real story lies under the hood. An all-new direct-injected gas engine replaces the outgoing 6.0-liter V8 engine. The engine will come paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 6.6-liter Duramax® turbo-diesel V8 engine continues to produce 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. The returning diesel engine comes mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission that maximizes capability.
According to General Motors, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will feature higher payload and towing capacities compared to the outgoing model. New trailering technologies will likely mirror the systems currently found in the Silverado 1500. If so, drivers can expect trailer-theft alert, a backup hitch camera, and remote brake light check, all of which make driving the Chevrolet Silverado HD more convenient.

The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a full-size pickup that’s as capable as it looks. The new model arrives with quite a few updates across the board. Notably, the current Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will be the last model in its generation as the 2019 model year promises an all-new model. Here’s a little more information about the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 from us here at Wilson GM.
The 2018 Silverado 1500’s exterior doesn’t see much in the way of changes. Properly equipped models will feature a Z71 and 4×4 decal on the side of the box.
