The Chevrolet 2020 Silverado has added new features including a 10-speed automatic transmission paired with the 5.3L V-8 standard engine on the LT Trail Boss and available on the High Country, the 6.2L V-8 on Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss and RST trims, and new technologies.

“In today’s truck market, customers continually demand more features, more technology, and more capability,” says Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer of full-size trucks. “For 2020, we are delivering more in each of these areas. As a result, the Silverado now offers customers the most towing capability of any light-duty pickup and the most affordable light-duty truck with more than 400 horsepower.”

For 2020, more than half of Silverado trim levels will be available with the 6.2L V-8 with an SAE-certified 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

For the Custom Trail Boss and the LT Trail Boss, the power is paired with a 2-inch factory suspension lift and the Z71 Off Road Package with a locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho mono-tube off-road shocks, 18-inch wheels, and Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires. The Custom Trail Boss with the 6.2L V-8 starts at $43,865 including destination fee.

Also new for 2020 is the 6.2L V-8 available on Silverado RST models equipped with four-wheel drive. As a result, the maximum towing capacity of the Silverado is 13,400 pounds when properly equipped.

The Silverado 6.2L is also available with a performance upgrade package that adds a performance air intake and cat-back performance exhaust system, raising output to 435 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque.

For 2020, Silverado will be available with an all-new 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engine on the LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country models. It has 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft., with 95 percent torque arriving at 1,250 rpm and peak torque arriving at 1,500 rpm and sustained to 3,000 rpm.

The all-new engine leverages the efficiency and refinement advantages of the inline-six-cylinder architecture and builds in advanced combustion and emissions technologies.

Chevy’s 5.3L V-8 with Dynamic Fuel Management is available with the 10-speed automatic transmission on certain Silverado trims. The new engine-transmission combination comes standard on the LT Trail Boss and is available on the High Country trim.

The 2020 Silverado Custom will now be available with Chevy’s advanced 2.7L Turbo, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2020 Silverado will also offer expanded towing technologies previously introduced on the all-new 2020 Silverado HD. Both are available with 15 camera views for trailering and includes the transparent trailer feature, which uses the tailgate-mounted camera and an available accessory camera mounted on the rear of the trailer. The resulting display helps drivers to virtually see through the trailer.

Also new is available smart trailer technology that allows access to features of the iN-Command Control System from ASA Electronics through the myChevrolet mobile app or through the in-vehicle trailering app on the vehicle’s infotainment system.

Finally, the Silverado is available with Adaptive cruise Control – Camera. The system features a single high-mounted camera behind the rearview mirror that scans the road to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The system can bring the Silverado to a complete stop and is integrated with the stop/start capability of the engines. The system is available on Silverado LT, LTZ, and High Country.
