Chevrolet is working to build momentum with its pickup trucks and issued the first teaser image for the 2020 Silverado HD on Tuesday.
The teaser image and first bits of information come ahead of a planned 2019 reveal and production date, according to Chevy. Without getting into much detail, the brand said the next-generation Silverado HD will focus on the needs of heavy-duty truck buyers. The 2020 Silverado HD will also wear larger proportions and a “bolder” design over the current pickup.
The solo shot of the truck’s front end clues us into a few things. The 2020 Silverado HD will apparently not wear a Chevy bowtie badge at the front. Instead, “Chevrolet” is spelled out across the large grille bar. From what we can tell, the new truck takes the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500‘s fascia design and amps it up a bit with stronger lines. However, it’s a familiar look. The headlights also appear to receive a similar treatment to the 2019 Silverado.
Finally, a massive hood scoop stares us right in the face, likely feeding air to an updated Duramax V8 engine. No official word on the powertrain from Chevrolet, though.
We’ll have plenty of time to chew on the teaser image. The brand said the 2020 Silverado HD will arrive in 2019 and enter production in Q3 of next year at the Flint, Michigan, assembly plant. Additional information will come closer to the pickup’s reveal.
