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.
