As it stands, the front end of the new trucks has been designed in a way so as to facilitate easy removal of the air dam and skid plate, thereby enabling more intuitive mounting of the plow hardware. In fact, the design eliminates the need to drill additional holes in the front bumper.
And when the plow blade is removed from the 2020 GM HD pickups, the trucks return to form by maintaining a smooth and integrated appearance without visible hardware.
Moreover, models with the new 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine will be offered with dual alternators to support the electrical needs for trailering, snowplowing and other jobs with greater power demands.
There snow plow prep package typically includes the following items:
- Power feed for backup and roof emergency light
- More robust alternator
- Forward lamp wiring harness
- Provision for cab roof mounted lamp/beacon
- Underbody shields
- Heavy-Duty front springs
The 2020 GM HD pickup truck range consists of the 2020 Silverado HD and 2020 Sierra HD. The vehicles offer a choice of two engines – the all-new 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline motor with 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque and the familiar 6.6L V8 L5P turbo-diesel Duramax rated at 445 horses and 910 pound-feet of torque. The gasoline V8 will be paired with GM’s 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission, while Duramax-powered models will receive an Allison-branded 10-speed automatic.
The Chevy will offer five trim levels: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country. Likewise, the GMC will offer five trims: base, SLE, SLT, AT4, and Sierra HD Denali trims. The lineup will include 2500HD and 3500HD capability variants, Regular, Double Cab and Crew Cab cab styles, as well as Standard and Long boxes. In addition, two chassis cab frame lengths will be offered.
