We already showed you a real-world gallery of Chevy’s 2020 Silverado HD High Country, but we have an even more detailed set of pictures for you today. This time, the photos are from the floor of the recently gone-by 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
As a recap, the High Country is the range-topping trim of the 2020 Silverado HD (as well as all other Silverado models, for that matter), slotting above the LTZ. The unit pictured here is the 2500HD coated in a brown color that we believe to be the new Oxford Brown Metallic, which replaces the Havana Brown Metallic on the 2020 Silverado HD.

From the outside, the 2020 Silverado HD High Country is distinguished by a trim-specific front fascia featuring a grille with the gold Chevy bowtie, two-tone metallic grille trim (chrome grille inserts with bronze accents). Chevy says that the front end of the model is “the most dramatic and expressive trim in the lineup.” And check out those smoked amber roof marker lamps. They look great, in conjunction with the amber markers on the mirrors (more on those in a jiff).
The front bumper is finished in body-color, while the headlamps feature LED reflectors for the primary lighting unit as well as LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). The front quarter panel proudly wears the High Country badge.
Also take note of those new advanced trailering mirrors. Standard on every 2020 Silverado HD model, the redesigned mirrors are now door-mounted, while being larger and more functional. The mirrors extend and retract using a four-bar-link system that makes for smoother operation, whether done with power or manually. The surface area of the mirrors is larger, delivering a greater field of view compared to the outgoing model.
There is also a forward-facing spot lamp on each mirror that shines light at about a 45-degree angle, providing illumination on the job site, camp site, or in any other dark space. What’s more, side-view cameras are mounted within the mirror housings. And, when equipped, mirror-mounted puddle lamps and two rearward-facing spot lamps are also available. As if all that weren’t enough, the new trailering mirrors provide improved perimeter lighting.
The 2020 Silverado HD High Country rides on a unique set of wheels. 2500HD and 3500HD Single Rear Wheel (SRW) models feature standard 18-inch, 16-spoke polished aluminum wheels (the units pictured here). 20-inch wheels are also available.
Meanwhile, the 3500HD Dual Rear Wheels (DRW / dually) has standard 17-inch steel wheels while offering 17-inch polished forged-aluminum wheels as an option.
The new BedStep, an integrated step located at front of the rear wheel openings that improves access to the cargo area, is present and accounted for on all 2020 Silverado HD models – including this here High Country.
Chrome door handles are abound on the 2020 Silverado HD High Country, as are the standard 6″ chrome, rectangular assist steps (RPO code BVQ).
Like the front bumper, the rear bumper is finished in body-color. There’s also the improved CornerStep feature.
The tailgate, meanwhile, features the debossed Chevrolet script, along with a Silverado nameplate on the driver’s side and a High Country nameplate on the passenger-side. The taillamps are LED-based with Chevy’s unique signature. The Cargo Area Lighting located in the pickup bed also uses LED lighting.
As a noteworthy aside, the Z71 Off-Road and Protection Package will not be offered on the 2020 Silverado HD High Country.
Like all units of the all-new Silverado HD, the 2020 Silverado HD High Country is offered with two engine choices: GM’s all-new 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline motor making an SAE-certified 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque mated to GM’s 6L90 6-speed automatic transmission. The celebrated 6.6L V8 L5P turbo-diesel Duramax mated to a 10-speed “Allison” transmission making 445 horses and 910 pound-feet of torque is an extra-cost option. This 2020 Silverado HD High Country has the optional Duramax engine under the hood.
