2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD: Redesign Info, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - December 12, 2018

Redesign Info

Following up on the redesigned 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the first look and details on the all-new 2020 Chevy Silverado HD lineup. This redesigned heavy-duty pickup will leave virtually no stone un-turned in its redesign, taking on some of the new features of the 1500 and tuning them for extreme use.

The 2020 Chevy Silverado HD will boast an eye-grabbing appearance with its massive upright grille, vertically-oriented headlights, and chiseled body lines. It will follow in its little brother’s footsteps by giving each of its five trim levels distinct looks with mild grille tweaks like a Chevy bowtie emblem, a stamped “CHEVROLET” logo, or the two-tone metallic grille. There is no mention of dramatic weight loss though use of lightweight materials like on the new Silverado 1500, but more information on that may come when it makes its full debut in 2019.

Inside, the 2020 Silverado HD will go through changes similar to the Silverado 1500. The big change will be a stretched cabin that gives it 3 inches more legroom in Crew Cab models and a better seating position. If the 2020 Silverado HD’s cabin resembles its little brother in any way, this heavy-duty rig will be all-truck on the inside with an upright dash, chunky buttons, and glove-friendly knobs. It will also boast a massive center console for storage and 4G LTE Wi-Fi.

The water is still a little cloudy under the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD’s hood. What we know is it’ll feature two new engine options. First will be a gasoline-fueled V8 with direct injection and paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This could be a modified version of the Silverado 1500’s optional 420-horsepower 6.2-liter engine. The second will be a new V8 Duramax turbo-diesel engine with a mighty 910 pound-feet of torque and a tough Allison 10-speed automatic transmission.

Safety remains a pain point for large trucks, as the IIHS doesn’t test them and buyers are rarely concerned with advanced safety tech. We expect the 2020 Silverado HD to at least have the same optional safety tech as the current model, which includes optional forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning. We could see other advancements like blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise, and maybe even automatic emergency braking, so stay tuned for updates.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup will hit showrooms in mid-2019.

We expect a bit of a price hike over the current model, which ranges from $38,995 to $60,295 (destination fees included) in its 2500 garb and $41,990 to $61,395 (destination fees included) in its 3500 model.

The Chevy Silverado HD will battle the Ford F-250 and F-350, Ram 2500 and 3500, and GMC Sierra HD.
