Less than five years since the last new Heavy Duty Chevy truck debuted, the Bowtie boys have unveiled their latest road-crushing brute: the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD.
Everything is new, and in a big way. Frames have been stiffened, a new gas engine has been developed (replacing the old-as-Earth 6.0-liter motor), tow ratings have jumped up, and a heaping of modern technology now pervades throughout.
Yet the first thing anyone will notice about the new truck is the sheetmetal. For the first time, the styling makes a clean break from the light-duty trucks, with the roof being the only shared bit between them.
Unfortunately, this aesthetic exclusivity is only skin deep; the interior remains a near-clone of the Silverado 1500. This means it's saddled with the same less-than-stellar materials and conservative design that critics have been bemoaning in the light-duty truck.
