High-tech tailgate

With the 2020 Silverado HD, you’ll be able to raise and lower the tailgate with the touch of a button. You’ll find three conveniently located buttons for this feature — one on the key fob, one in the cabin, and one on the tailgate itself. This will be a boon to driver that don’t have the strength to wrestle with a heavy tailgate, as well as anyone looking for a little more convenience in their truck-driving experience. Plus, it’s got bed steps to make accessing the truck bed easier.

Cameras galore

If you like keeping an eye on your cargo and the road around you, you’ll appreciate the 2020 Silverado HD’s suite of 15 cameras — more than any other truck in its class. This allows it to offer HD surround vision, giving you a bird’s eye view of your truck and its surroundings. There’s also a truck bed cam, which lets you check in on your cargo. However, the real showstopper is the transparent trailer view, which will help you change lanes, turn, park, and back your trailer confidently. There’s even a camera by the hitch to help you align the trailer. There are also some innovative solutions to old-school visibility issues. For instance, you can now widen the mirrors to accommodate the trailer you’re towing.

Smarter storage

The Ram and its RamBins don’t have the market cornered on in-cabin organization. The 2020 Silverado boasts plenty of nice storage compartments to keep your valuables out of sight, including a hidden backseat storage compartment. There’s also a wireless phone charging station, plenty of USB ports, and even a convenient power outlet in the truck bed.
