2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500: First Look – PickupTrucks.com


this is our first chance to see the 2020
Chevy Silverado heavy duties right next to me is a 2500 LTZ and you can look at
it and tell that this is an all-new pickup truck powertrain design interior
everything has been completely redone as far as powertrains the carryover Duramax
diesel is gonna come to the new 2020 Silverado HD s what you have here are
some Auto Show cables so it might look a little bit different but still the exact
same carry over engine 445 horsepower 910 foot-pounds of torque but now has a
10 speed heavy-duty Allison transmission made it up to it also the big news in
all-new 6.6 liter direct injection v8 engine 401 horsepower 464 foot-pounds of
torque now that new gas engine is also made it up to a revised six-speed
transmission and also one thing to consider here if you’re doing any work
on your engine on these new heavy duties they’re a little taller than they were
before so when you’re trying to reach for this hood it’s a little difficult
inside everything is going to be very familiar to the Silverado half-ton
pickup truck regular extended and crew cab is going to be larger more legroom
especially for rear passengers but the inside – very very similar to what we’ve
already seen on the half tons dual glove boxes this is the LTZ package very nice
organic looking center console plenty of storage here in the middle and also a
uniquely designed gauge cluster for the driver another feature we like an
all-wheel drive capable transfer case on a heavy duty vehicle that’s a segment
exclusive here at the back of the truck we love the fact that it’s got the rear
view cameras push button tailgate drop does it automatically you also have four
fifth wheel or gooseneck hitches you’ve got the 4 and the 7 pin hitches here on
the inside also a three-prong 120 volt plug here on the opposite side and then
you’ve got almost 7 inches of extra width in the beds and the longest beds
in the segment no matter what the cab configuration
and then because this has the auto dropout a lift tailgate one push button
and it’ll send the tailgate right back up and closed
there’s obviously tons to talk about with this new vehicle and we will be
talking more about this after we get some time behind the wheel but to call
out just two features that we really like the DEF tank is right here at the
fuel filler and the fact is that every single duly equipped Chevy heavy-duty
Silverado 3500 with the diesel will be able to tow over thirty five thousand
