The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is Chevrolet’s biggest pickup truck. Its large grille, huge mudguards and wide mirrors characterize it as a force to be reckoned with. The company is about to launch a new version of this truck. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will be the paradigmatic model of this line. With the HD tag that says Heavy Duty, the new pickup truck will be a great option for drivers looking for a vehicle that can do any job on the farm or on a job site. As such, the new model is maximized in terms of form and function. Read on to have a look.
To be honest, spy photos do not provide much, but the preview shows a lot of interesting details. The redesigned hood houses an incredible and awesome scoop, making the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD really powerful. In addition, the protrusion provides some extra air to cool the powerful V8 units. Then, the truck has a new grille with a large identification plate “Chevrolet” and a pair of stolen headlights, I dare say. The fixtures are borrowed from the smaller 1500 model, so I know they look great and they have LED elements on top. Unlike the naked and daring front, I can not really say what’s going on in the back. From what I’ve heard, the truck will take the younger brother’s taillights, while the rear bumper should accommodate a brand new exhaust system. The side of the truck shows different wheel arches, somehow more rounded and nothing else right now.
The builder will try to reduce the weight as much as possible. The truck will receive a new body made of many lightweight materials, including a higher level of steel and high strength aluminum, as well as carbon fiber. The camouflaged prototype suggests something that the claim can not. Judging by the shots, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will be significantly larger than its predecessor. This will have a positive influence on both the interior space and the load capacity.
To boost this huge pickup, the company installed a 6.6L Duramax L5P V8 turbodiesel engine. Originally designed for military and defense vehicles, this power plant offers exceptional performance. Made of cast iron and aluminum, this V8 engine generates 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. Drivers will have the option to choose between gasoline and turbo diesel options for this engine. It has an overhead valve (OHV) system that contains four valves in each cylinder. In addition, it uses a compression ratio of 16:0:1. Moreover, its induction system is based on a turbocharger with variable geometry. Part of what enhances the capacity of this unit is the air to air intercooler system. In addition, the engine is cooled with a liquid and uses a wet sump lubrication system. It also powers the wheels with a 6 speed automatic transmission. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD features a common rail injection direct injection system. This engine is powerful enough to launch the 1 ton pickup from 0 to 60 mph in 8.3 seconds. In addition, it allows this truck to tow up to 23,300 pounds. This 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD has an average mileage of 20 mpg.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is expected to be unveiled at the North America International Show in 2019 in Detroit. It will cost about $ 28,300 for the basic edge. The advanced setting will cost $ 55,600.
