The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is set to launch next year, and before it does, we’re already gathering information on what to expect. The truck has grown significantly to rival the colossal stature of the Ford Super Duty, and will integrate new engines, a new transmission, and (hopefully) significant improvements in towing and payload ratings. However, with this new generation Chevy HD pickup, don’t expect a higher-riding Trail Boss version of the truck.
The all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 introduced the more off-road capable Z71 Trail Boss package this year, and incorporates a 2-inch lift, Goodyear all terrain tires, but nothing mechanically outstanding. It’s largely meant to be an appearance package that seems to turn heads on the street, and praised by the type of enthusiast with the ’07 Chevy truck in the parking lot with the aftermarket lift kit. But the goals for the T1 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD program aren’t said to be aimed at the same result, per the Chevrolet marketing people.
With no Trail Boss package, we can anticipate the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup to start with the Work Truck, and then Custom package, moving up to LT, to LTZ, and capped off by the 2020 Silverado HD High Country, pictured at the top of the page. Chevrolet may add more trim levels through the lifecycle of the truck.
Maybe because Chevrolet wanted to keep the focus on towing and hauling capabilities for this 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD program. Maybe because it would be over seven feet tall. Whatever the reason, it seems that the Ram Heavy Duty Power Wagon will remain in a segment of one.
