Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2020 Silverado HD lineup at the GM Flint plant in Michigan earlier in 2019. As of this writing, the trucks have been rolling off the line and deliveries are almost underway. The 2020 model year brings with a complete overhaul, including the underlying architecture, which itself lends to new exterior dimensions, including a longer, taller and wider body, not to mention a number of styling changes. However, with no less than five different trim levels to choose from, it’s easy to confuse which model is which. As such, we’re breaking it down with this 2020 Silverado HD visual comparison guide. For the sake of consistency, each trim level is in the Crew Cab/Standard Bed configuration and covered in Summit White paint.
The 2020 Silverado HD is offered in five trim levels. From base to range-topping, the five trims are:
- WT / Work Truck
- High Country

About The 2020 Silverado HD
The Silverado HD received a complete overhaul for the 2020 model year. It’s built on the new GM T1 platform, and features an exterior design similar to that of the new Silverado 1500. The 2020 Silverado HD sports larger exterior dimensions, but is lighter than its predecessor thanks to a mixed-material design. The interior was also redesigned, and comes with the third-gen Chevrolet infotainment and heaps of new technology that helps in towing.
The powertrain lineup consists of the new 6.6L L8T V8 gasoline engine producing 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, which mates to the GM 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission. The optional 6.6L Duramax Diesel L5P V8 engine carries over with 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, and mates to the GM-designed and Allison branded 10-speed automatic transmission.
