2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd Black, Widow, Edition – the spy shots of 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd test vehicles have appeared on the web and changes are there in exterior and cabin- as is evident from those images.
Now that Ford has taken wraps off the new version of its F-150 truck lineup and Ram 1500 is also getting revamped, can GM sit idle and watch the rivals steal the show? That explains why the US car giant is giving the Chevy Silverado 1500 lineup a makeover for 2019
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd – Boxy Build
While the upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd retains the boxy build of the present version, changes are there in exterior styling. The front bumper design and hood look more aggressive, and the model also gets new LED-accented headlights. It will come in three cab setups- regular, double and crew cab. There will be three-bed choices too.
The truck will be released in 4 trims- WT, LS, LT, LTZ and High Country. A sporty Z71 package will be available for the LT and LTZ trims. The exhaust pipes may be at side or rear, as hinted by the spy shots. The 2019 version gets two new exterior hues- Cajun Red Tintcoat and Havana Metallic. The models all get LED-accented daytime running lights too.
It seems that GM will use a mix of high-strength steel and aluminium in the body to enhance durability while reducing overall vehicle weight.
The interior shots of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd have also been made available. The layout is similar to that of the existing model, but now it gets a more prominent infotainment display in the centre stack.
You get several USB ports in the cabin, along with 110V AC power, and a 12V DC outlet. GM is likely to deploy sound insulating elements like Triple-seal inlaid doors and acoustic glass to keep the cabin quiet. As always, the top High Country trim will get the best upholstery along with enough customisation options.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd Powertrain Specs
Details of the powering to be used in the upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd are yet to be declared by GM. However, industry experts assume the truck will be powered by the tried and tested EcoTec-branded V8 and V6 engines. A Turbo diesel engine may also be on the cards, though GM has not said anything on it so far.
Whatever engine is ultimately used in the upcoming Chevy Silverado 1500, it is likely to be mated with the company’s new 10-speed automatic transmission setup- which has been developed in alliance with Ford. The towing capacity and payload may not be changed.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500hd Pricing and Availability
