The 2020 Silverado HD is coming. Previously, we showed you all kinds of spy photos of the upcoming full-size, heavy duty truck, told you that it will introduce a new flow-through grille, an all-new gasoline V8 engine, and even pointed out the presence of an integrated side step on some models. And today, we have new photos of the 2020 Silverado HD Work Truck.
Caught while undergoing standard-issue towing and unladen shake-down tests on Michigan highways, the model seen here is the 2020 Silverado 2500HD WT – the bare-bones, budget-minded workhorse that delivers no-frills, stripped-down functionality and capability – in Crew Cab form.
Up front, we see a new set of mirrors and a new grille design that is similar to that of the 2019 Silverado 1500 Work Truck, with “CHEVROLET” written across the grille’s crossbar, exactly like Chevy teased earlier this year. Pay no mind to the oval on the upper part of the upper part of the grille, as it is fake.
Elements that give the Work Truck its bare-bones characteristics include black trim on the front and rear bumpers and a set of incandescent (non-LED) headlights. Additionally, the entire ensemble rides on a set of simple steel wheels.
Inside, expect the 2020 Silverado HD Work Truck to feature a cloth interior, a front bench seat, and the base 7-inch touchscreen on the center stack.
The 2020 Silverado HD will be offered with an all-new gasoline engine and the current 6.6L Duramax L5P Diesel engine. The transmission situation is currently unknown, but we expect that the current GM 6-speed automatic for the gas motor as well as the 6-speed Allison 1000 for the diesel engine will be updated.
We expect the 2020 Silverado HD range to follow in the footsteps of its less capable, light duty brother and expand the lineup to include more models and variants, such as potential Custom and Trail Boss models.
The next-gen Silverado HD will launch in the second or third quarters of the 2019 calendar launch as a 2020 model year vehicle. It will be assembled at the following GM plants:
