Yesterday, we brought you pictures of the 2020 Silverado HD Dually, which looks astoundingly massive in the Crew Cab configuration. Today, we have photos of the 2020 Sierra HD in the Regular Cab, Long Bed configuration and Work Truck trim level.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the truck as a Chevrolet Silverado, rather than a GMC Sierra. Please stick with us as we update the article.
Regular Cab models can seat up to three people, but that’s not their strong suit. Instead, these trucks are all about carrying cargo, and the eight-foot bed in this prototype makes for the most versatile payload capabilities.
We would imagine that the 2020 Silverado HD will also benefit from the new bed design introduced in the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500. Facilitated by new stamping techniques, the new bed is seven inches wider in the 2019 Silverado 1500 compared to the bed in the K2 platform Silverado before it. A similar improvement for the Silverado Heavy Duty would result in a truly voluminous bed, especially in models configured with the long bed seen here – enabling the trucks to handle an even higher workload.
The next-gen Silverado HD, comprised of the 2020 Silverado 2500HD and 2020 Silverado 3500HD, will adopt the new T1 platform and styling of the smaller 2019 Silverado 1500. The trucks are expected to wear a variant of the bold face of the new Silverado half-ton, while benefits from various usability and convenience improvements already seen on its smaller brother, such as a more aerodynamic cab, a more space-efficient and stronger bed, significantly lighter weight, improved CornerStep bumpers and much more.
The 2020 Silverado HD family is expected to launch in the 2019 calendar year as 2020 model year vehicles.
