2019 Chevrolet Silverado HD | Amesbury Chevrolet | Amesbury, MA

The Chevrolet heavy-duty pickup truck lineup is back for the new model year, and it’s the best it’s ever been. That being said, how does the 2020 Silverado HD differ from its predecessor? These are some of the differences between the 2019 and 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD.

 

Performance

 

For the new model year, the 2020 Silverado HD now comes with two powerful engines. The first is all new and is a standard 6.6-liter V8 engine. It produces 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, replacing the 2019 model’s less powerful 6.0-liter V8.

 

The 2020 Silverado’s second engine is one that showed up mid-year on the 2019 — a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 that puts out 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. This engine now comes paired to an all-new Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission, rather than last year’s six-speed.

 

Size

 

Bigger is better when it comes to the Silverado heavy-duty lineup. The 2020 model’s wheelbase is 5.2 inches longer and 1.4 inches wider. It has also gained an additional 10.4 inches in overall length.

 

Technology

 

While each of these Silverado HD model years come with a range of connective features like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, the 2020 offers more. This model comes with a range of trailering apps, wireless smartphone charging, audio system upgrades, and more USB ports.

Chevy is teasing us with their announcement of the 2020 Silverado HD, which will debut next year. The heavy-duty pickup will be big, beastly, and offer formidable capabilities and power. All we have so far is a single image of the truck, and it looks tricked out with tough gear and features.

The automaker has announced that we will be able to see the 2020 Silverado HD vehicle being tested on public roads in the near future. This small tidbit of information is accompanied by the announcement that this vehicle will be produced during the third quarter of 2019 in Flint, Michigan. Although we’re short on official information, we expect that the new Silverado HD will offer a variety of strong powertrain options – including gas and diesel V8 options – as well as the many of the features currently on offer in the 2019 Silverado. It will most likely be lighter than its predecessors, offering enhanced towing and hauling capabilities and technologies. We’re guessing it will also feature state-of-the-art driver-assist and safety technology, as well as entertainment and connectivity technology like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility.

The announcement of the 2020 Silverado HD comes after a string of other new Silverado model announcements, so look out for revamped, exciting 2019 Silverados in the coming months. Here at Amesbury Chevrolet, we can’t wait for the arrival of this highly-anticipated addition to Chevy’s truck lineup.
