What's New for the 2020 Chevy Silverado?

Bigger cabins filled with luxury make full-size pickups top competitors with sedans and SUVs in the vehicle market. Unlike their rivals, though, pickups like the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 have a cargo box offering far more carrying capacity than a sedan trunk can muster with no restricting roof like an SUV. As you'll see here, the Silverado advantages don't end with this feature.

How Has Chevy Expanded its Silverado Truck Lineup?

There are 8 Silverado models, the WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country, and one is bound to have what you need. WT stands for Work Truck, and it's the only version with a single-row cab. It also offers 6-speaker sound with the Crew cab option, and all cab types include a 7-inch touchscreen, air conditioning, a 12-volt outlet, and a USB port. The Custom edition replaces vinyl trim with cloth, puts carpeting on the floors, and gives windows and locks power.

The Custom Trail Boss takes the Custom trim and raises the suspension 2 inches for easy off-roading. LT buyers receive an 8-inch touchscreen and an extra USB port. The RST model focuses on the exterior with LED headlights, taillights, and fog lights along with an EZ Lift assisted tailgate. The LT Trail Boss adds off-road enhancements to the LT trim. The LTZ goes up a notch by giving leather-clad front seats a choice of 10 automated positions, making climate control dual-zone, and putting a 120-volt outlet in the cargo box. Ultimate enjoyment in the High Country edition comes from a Bose 7-speaker audio system.

How does the 2020 Silverado Engine Balance Power Needs and Fuel Economy?

2020 Chevy SilveradoThe 2020 Silverado 1500 gives buyers no less than 6 choices in engine blocks starting with a standard 4.3-liter V6 for 285 horsepower in leagues with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Both mileage and brawn get boosted by a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 that reaches 310 horsepower. Operating with 8-speed automatic transmission, it offers 20 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. The 5.3-liter V8 comes in 2 flavors, Dynamic Fuel Management, and Active Fuel Management, but both provide 355 horsepower.

Depending on the trim, the Dynamic Fuel Management version can come with an 8-speed or 10-speed automatic transmission while the Active Fuel Management block is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 6.2-liter V8 generates 420 horsepower while showing off another full-size pickup talent by towing up to 13,400 lbs. The Silverado isn't limited to gas as proved by the 3-liter turbodiesel inline-6 block getting 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Tied to a 10-speed automatic transmission, it delivers 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

Packed with Tech Safety Features

2020 Chevy SilveradoWith the 2020 Silverado yet to be tested, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the 2019 Silverado Superior for its frontal collision avoidance system. Airbags, antilock brakes, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, and tire pressure monitoring also go into making the Silverado a safe ride. Depending on the trim, high-tech safety like pedestrian and front impact alarm with automatic braking, lane departure alarm with corrective steering, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, and a surround camera are available.
