2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Previewed

Perhaps in an effort to pivot the conversation away from plant closures and job losses, General Motors has decided to show us the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD in advanced of a planned February reveal.

As recent spy shots suggested, the 2020 Silverado HD is going to pack an all-new design that is an even bolder iteration of the 2019 Silverado 1500’s look. With a massive grille and subsequently large headlights, no one is going to mistake the new Silverado HD.

“We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck,” said Brian Izard, lead exterior designer for Silverado HD. “The result is a truck that looks like a piece of heavy machinery with modern, chiseled finishes and customer-focused details.”

The interior is supposedly similar to that of the 2019 Silverado 1500, but thus far Chevy has not released photographs of the inside.

Surprisingly, Chevy has gone ahead and confirmed the Silverado HD will offer a new gas V-8 engine with direct-injection and a six-speed automatic or GM’s Duramax turbo-diesel V-8 with 910 pound-feet of torque mated to an Allison 10-speed automatic.

Chevy says the 2020 Silverado HD will arrive in mid-2019 and will mark the third all-new Silverado model in only 18 months.

    Ya think? Not to mention this is a GM CGI rendering. The same insanity that made even the C7 upon debut look "meh." I never understand why they just don't show an actual picture. Personally I just don't see any problem with the HD being rugged looking. It's currently being reported that the new Ford SD will have as large a grill. Truth is, people who buy these are not buying them for the same reason they buy a luxury SUV or sports car.. Go figure. They buy them to do a job. Plus.. Intimidation is the motivator of some, and this sucker looks mean. Sorry, but I'm of the opinion that it's time for purpose built work pickups to go back to being rugged. Ford started this bullcrap back in '97 making trucks soft looking like cars. In the 1500.. Cool.. make it buttoned down looking as that market is using them sometimes for family stuff... But the HD versions are 90% work, not to mention the people who are not seeing it for it's intentional use are same ones who would be need a hand gettin down from one... Like a maiden from a carriage

    It'll be interesting to see where GMC goes with this.




    I don't think the Camaro treatment works well on trucks...

    That thing looks hideous at the front.

    So GM fans argument with the last generation Super Duty was that it should not be combined with the F-150 sales for they did not look alike.

    So can Silverado HDs not be included with light duties now?
