The 2020 Silverado HD by Chevrolet will debut in February, and will include a new feature called the Bedstep for better bed access while towing a fifth wheel.
“We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer of the Silverado HD. “As such, we built a heavy-duty truck tailor-made for them that has more differentiation than ever before from light-duty models, offers advanced towing technologies to improve towing confidence and includes new features such as the integrated Bedstep, which makes it easier to access the bed while pulling a fifth wheel trailer.”
The interior benefits from similar architectural changes made to the all-new Silverado 1500, including an additional three inches of legroom on crew cab models and a taller, more comfortable seating position.
Under the 2020 Silverado HD’s hood is a choice of two new powertrains: an all-new gasoline engine with direct injection mated to a six-speed transmission, or the Duramax Turbo-Diesel V-8, which delivers 910 pound per foot of torque through an all-new, Allison 10-speed transmission.
