[PHOTOS] Feast Your Eyes on the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD, Which Debuts in February
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will debut in February — and new photos released by Chevy have given us our closest look yet at this eagerly anticipated pickup.
The 2020 Silverado looks absolutely massive, with a chiseled, muscular design that underlines its status as a heavy-duty work truck. Although the Silverado HD benefited from recent efforts to redesign the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500, it maintains a unique look. The only exterior design it has in common with its smaller sibling is the roof.
“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, the chief engineer for 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.”

The Silverado HD’s powerful looks will be matched by the capability. One powertrain combination will feature a new gas engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Details on this new engine haven’t been finalized, but it’s likely to be a 6.6-liter V8. The other will feature a Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 (with 910 lb-ft of torque) and a new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission.
The new Silverado HD will offer new trailering technology along with increased payload and towing abilities. Chevy also promises “a host of technologies and features designed specifically for heavy-duty customers.”
The interior of the Silverado HD will be much improved, too, including higher and more comfortable seating and more legroom in crew-cab models.
After the Silverado HD debuts in February, Chevy expects it to be available for purchase by mid-2019.
