2020 Silverado HD High Country: Live Photo Gallery32
Feast your eyes on the very first real-world photos of the all-new 2020 Silverado HD High Country. Though we’ve already seen the new Silverado HD in studio photos late last year, we haven’t seen the new big boy truck in person, until these exclusive photos that we just captured at a media briefing held near Detroit.
The range-topping High Country trim level of the 2020 Silverado HD seen here is a 2500HD (three-quarter ton) model in the Crew Cab, Standard Box body style. It appears to be coated in the Havana Brown Metallic exterior color that has become synonymous with Silverado High Country models.
Other notable elements that seem right at home on the 2020 Silverado HD High Country is the ample use of chrome trim, along with the bright multi-spoke wheels.
Though we don’t have any details (like specifications) on this monster just yet, the one thing we can come away with is that this is one massive truck, which is something we already expected from seeing it in spy shots while the model was undergoing testing.
Notably, the High Country model has a completely different front fascia than the LT trim level.
Chevy’s 2020 Silverado HD will be available in five different trim levels, Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country. A Trail Boss model is not in the cards. Each of the five trims will offer “a different level of design, features and technology to meet the individual and rigorous demands of HD truck owners,”, according to Chevrolet.
Under the hood will sit an all-new, direct-injected gasoline engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Horsepower and torque figures for this new gasoline motor have not yet been announced. Meanwhile, the 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 engine making 910 pound-feet of torque will be mated to an all-new, Allison 10-speed transmission, which – as it turns out – is more GM than Allison.
Chevy says that the 2020 Silverado HD will be the most capable Silverado HD ever, while also offering all-new customer-focused trailering technologies, significant increases in towing and payload capabilities and a host of technologies and features designed specifically for heavy-duty truck customers. One of these is the new BedStep feature, which allows easy access to the truck’s bed from the side of the vehicle.
The 2020 Silverado HD goes on sale in mid-2019. Full details are expected to be revealed in February 2019.

It’s set to mimic what’s been discovered in the 1500’s, though I’m hoping there are at least some cosmetic changes based on the “Top Dollar” payout you would have to endure to have one of these, particularly with the High End models, we’ll know soon enough what’s in there.
Nice. I would like to see the rear Chevrolet name in silver color. It would be outstanding.
I wish the LTZ came with no chrome
There’s spy photos of a model running around with different wheels and a similar grill with a different finish. Maybe it was pre-production, but there may be a way to have the grill color-keyed.
I suspect it’s the equivalent to the LTZ trim, but I’m unsure.
I think the 2012/2013 LTZ HD was the last one they did with the Body Colored Grille and Door Handles, it doesn’t seem like they will do that again for the outgoing 2019 Model, if GM has plans to re-introduce that option, we’ll probably be waiting a couple of years after the initial launch to see an Appearance Package like that again.
Looks awesome. The proportions are exactly as they should be, and I love the stamped “CHEVROLET” on the tailgate. The side step is also a great touch.
I really hope we get some more information on all the different models, options, and powertrain specs.
You guys notice that there’s no DEF tank or frame rail hanging below the cab?
Looks really good. I know the first CGI pics of the LT model were trash.
I like that the DEF tank is now concealed, guessing the fill is still under the hood since the fuel fill cover doesn’t look enlarged. it’d be nice to at least have the DEF and fuel fill on the same side of the truck. Side steps are cool too. better than stepping on the tire to climb over the side of the truck.
I can’t say I’m a fan of the front angled/tapered front grille, reminds me of Ram’s grille angles, and that’s not something I want to be associated with. I’m also not a fan of the rims, give me something that doesn’t look like it’s designed by a jeweler – rugged, practical yet stylish.
DEF fill is with the fuel fill on the 2020 HD
I actually like the LT front more.
Need Midnight Option….No Chrome…Black Wheels!!..Need New Dash Similar To Dodge’s Big Screen!…Old Dash Is Neanderthal!
In my opinion, I always felt the front-end was – way- overstyled. Now it’s off-the-charts overstlyed and just plain ugly. The first thing that came to mind was the Nissan Juke…. Crossed with a 1958 Buick. Ugh
I’m glad mine has a few more years as that’s a face only it’s parents could love.
Gives new meaning to the word ugly.
Gross. Looks like Ford, Dodge, and GM, got drunk one night, had a “sleepover”, and this is the result. Congratulations GM, you e made the Tori Spelling of trucks. Arched wheel walls, really? Sure hope my 05 HD lasts a few 100k longer.
What in the world, GM? Painful. Awful. Hideous. Butt UGLY. Seriously, WTF? Thank God for competition, and boy will GM be feeling it from FCA and Ford like they are already with the Silverado & Sierra. Advertise all you want the new GM trucks really suck.
Front end, just like the 1500, is just polarizing to look at. Could they not have figured out a way to make it look handsome? The 4500-5500 front end is better looking IMO.
Profile is nice, strong looking like a thoroughbred horse standing proud and rear looks good but that grille and headlight placement is horrible!
Like a ugly girl with a smokin’ hot body!
The front end is probably my favorite part. This is a really good looking rig.
Ony thing left now for GM to take a chainsaw to and hack up now is the GMC Sierra equivalent to this package. Always thought the Sierra was the better execution of the two and not bad looking… Over a little over-styled. If they’re smart they’ll leave it alone or leave it to a mechanical and INTERIOR ugrade.
There’s plenty here to not like, but “Allison-branded” GM transmission is the biggest red flag I’ve seen in a while. I love the idea of 10 speeds, but loosing a bulletproof actual Allison will cause me to wait years to know the replacement is adequate before I drop a dime on one. Although, based on the looks of the Chevy, it would almost certainly be a GMC.
I agree 100% Richard.
The GM warranty means zero any longer if you have transmission troubles, GM does NOTHING for you.
I will also wait a while.
You know the 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty on the HD truck used to mean a lot to a person, but if it is “normal operation” you have no warranty. I’m not sure what to think any longer, and I’m not sure what GM could do to make me feel like they cared even a little.
I know chevy is thinking out of the box when it come to design but maybe they thinking a little to much but you know the big thing to will be if the interior is different from the light duty I doubt it but I cant wait until February to find out more about it
Everyone wants that “Play It Safe/ Evoulutionary ” theme with these trucks and GM has been doing that with these trucks for decades now, I’m certainly onboard with this Radical Departure Design, finally something that is not predictable with every new Chevy Truck that hits the market when it comes to their appearnce, change is good, we expect that within ourselves everyday, it’s not going to hurt to expect the same thing out of a “Material Item”, it’s not meant to look like or follow the footsteps of a RAM or a Ford in terms of appearance and by any means it shouldn’t have to like most of you would expect or wish, I plan on buying one here by the summer of 2020 with confidence, bottom Line is, if you don’t like what you see here now that you know what’s final with this trucks styling, you can now save yourselves a tone of stressf and go to a web page that suites your taste base on a vehicle that you may like.
I’m a GM Fan but they just lost Me.
So glad I own a Ram 2500 Diesel Now
The designer/engineer needs to get canned
I am a mechanic by trade I grew up working with my dad out of his self employed shop so I I am a GM fan for life but uhg I don’t know what ur designers were thinking these trucks are horrifying, don’t mean to bash but I can’t take it anymore, if GM built a new truck that somewhat resembled a 68 Chev I think you would sell that heck out of them I know I would go buy one! Please listen to what your customers want please!
