Chevy’s heavy-duty pickup truck is spotted while it was hauling a three-axle horse trailer a day ago. Our source claims that this could only be the totally redesigned 2020 Silverado 3500 HD, and we believe it is. The vehicle was using an amazing oil-burner engine that will most likely be carried over to the new-gen model. It’s fair to say that the Duramax L5P 6.6L turbodiesel V-8 mill doesn’t really need any kind of adjustment because it’s stunning already. The diesel “mean-machine” produces 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of grunt, so the heavy-duty truck can haul three horse trails at the same time without any problem.
Even though it’s going to use the same engine, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD will deliver a bit better performance results. The pickup truck will most likely couple the engine with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, while an all-new platform will include more lightweight materials.
Styling-wise, the heavy-duty truck will get a quite interesting front end that features a totally new hood with a large bulge at the very center. This should together with large air intakes provide enough air for the mighty engine. In addition, the front end hosts a totally new grille and a very large Chevrolet badge, while chrome finishes make the pickup more luxurious.
As you can see, the cabin is all-new, but not as unfamiliar as it should be. This is the first time we see the interior, though it rings bells because the heavy-duty truck shares practically everything with the smaller and more popular 1500 model. The new center stack hosts a screen which is large enough, yet not too big. It’s flanked with a pair of air vents. Below, the new model gets plenty of new knobs and buttons, as well as HVAC controls. The multifunctional steering wheel appears to be stolen from the new-gen Silverado 1500 too.
Even though it has been teased already, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD won’t arrive soon. Moreover, we are pretty sure that the carmaker doesn’t plan to introduce it before the 2019 NAIAS.
