Chevrolet recently debuted the full lineup of its all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. With an increased towing capacity and new state of the art towing technology, this release is said to be the strongest and most capable HD ever. Updated with a larger design, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD offers more cab space making it the most comfortable HD to date. If you’re wondering what other features come with this new release, we’ve put together a list of the 5 things you should know about the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD.
Compared to 2019, the 2020 Silverado HD increases towing capability across the lineup. This greater capability comes from the suspension enhancements and the new propulsion combinations that work to offer confident performance and durability when towing. The Chevrolet Silverado’s frame has also been enhanced with boxed rails that improve strength and offer a smooth ride. The Silverado HD can also handle heavier loads. The Silverado has a higher gross combined vehicle rating of up to 43,500 pounds on properly equipped trucks!
2. Enhanced Towing Experience
The greater towing capability is accompanied by Chevy’s new suite of customer focused trailering technology. These include a new transparent trailer feature designed to help improve the experience with visibility and easier hitching. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD offers up to 15 camera views that deliver great clarity. Some of the views include HD Surround Vision, a bed view, and an industry first transparent trailer view. The transparent trailer view offers visibility through the trailer providing added confidence when towing. The transparent trailer feature can be used when navigating parking lots, merging into traffic and when making tight turns.
3. New Gas Engine Option That Delivers More Torque
Chevrolet is now offering a new direct-injected 6.6L gas engine that delivers more torque. This engine is built on a cast-iron Small Block for long-term durability with aluminum heads. This delivers more precise fuel control while enabling greater power. The 6.6L gas engine is paired with the 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission, which features the Tow/Haul mode. This combination is set to provide the added strength and durability demanded by HD customers.
4. New Allison 10-Speed Transmission
Both the Allison 10-speed transmission and the 6.6L Duramax diesel engine have historically been combined to deliver a legendary performance. In the 2020 Silverado HD release, upgrades were made to nearly every driveline component. This has resulted in an improvement of power, offering now 910 lb-ft of torque in first gear. With the improved driveline components, the Allison 10-speed transmission is now better at transferring all of the Duramax’s torque to the pavement. This has also helped improve towing capabilities by 52 percent.
5. Heavy-Duty Details
The every-day use of the Silverado was carefully examined by designers and engineers at Chevrolet. This resulted in thoughtful and intuitive features that make every-day interactions with the truck easier and more convenient. Inside, the Silverado HD offers a spacious cabin with nearly 3 inches of additional rear-leg room in Crew Cab models. A higher seating position and an optional Head-up display is now also offered in this release making it easier and more convenient to see behind the wheel.
