  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-6-2018 Earlier this week Chevrolet released the first photos of the 2020 Silverado HD in LT trim. The response was mixed. Today, the brand is trying again, showing off the better looking HIgh Country trim level. In total, the new Silverado HD will have five unique trim levels. We've already seen the LT, and here are the images of the all-new range-topping Silverado HD High Country. “Truck customers are very clear: They want the perfect truck for them and not a ‘one size fits most’ truck compromised for the masses,” said Mike Simcoe, vice president, Global Design, General Motors. “That insight shaped our strategy for the next-generation Silverado franchise, providing customers more differentiation between the Silverado 1500 and the Silverado HD as well as more personalization and differentiation between individual trim levels.” The two-tone metallic trim you see here is exclusive to High Country models. Read Chevrolet's Press Release On the 2020 Silverado HD High Country CHEVROLET REVEALS 2020 SILVERADO HD HIGH COUNTRY, SECOND OF FIVE DISTINCT MODELS FOR ALL-NEW PICKUP Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country models offer different combinations of design, features and technologies tailored for different customers DETROIT — Chevrolet knows no two truck customers are the same, and as such continues to expand its truck franchise with five distinct trim levels for the all-new Silverado HD: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and range-topping High Country. This follows the expanded range of customer choices on the all-new Silverado 1500, which has eight distinct trim levels. As with the 2019 Silverado 1500, each 2020 Silverado HD model offers a different level of design, features and technology to meet the individual and rigorous demands of HD owners. “Truck customers are very clear: They want the perfect truck for them and not a ‘one size fits most’ truck compromised for the masses,” said Mike Simcoe, vice president, Global Design, General Motors. “That insight shaped our strategy for the next-generation Silverado franchise, providing customers more differentiation between the Silverado 1500 and the Silverado HD as well as more personalization and differentiation between individual trim levels.” For example, each of the Silverado HD models features distinct exterior design details including grilles featuring either the Chevrolet stamped bar or the iconic Chevrolet bowtie and a mix of black, body color, chrome or the two-tone metallic trim exclusive to High Country models. “We took into account every detail of what customers expect, and how they will use their truck,” said Simcoe. “The results are unique versions of the Silverado HD equally at home working on a construction site or pulling a camping trailer.” The 2020 Silverado HD goes on sale in mid-2019. Stay tuned for more details about the all-new 2020 Silverado HD — including images of Work Truck, Custom and LTZ — closer to launch. ABOUT CHEVROLET Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 100 countries and selling more than 4.0 million cars and trucks a year.

  2. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 4/10/18 Chevrolet is hitting hard and hitting fast when it comes to releasing their new generation of pickups. First came the 2019 1500 in December, by surprise. Then came the 4500/5500/6500HD chassis cab trucks (not by surprise) last month. Now Chevrolet is surprising us once again with an extremely revealing photo of the next generation Silverado 3500HD. Seen above, the picture of the next gen 2020 HD shows off part of the front grille, hood, mirrors, and headlights. What can we tell? Well, a few things. The front grill will have a bowtie less option OR the bowtie is lower in the grille (aka 2019 Camaro) The front turn signals/drl laps will be LED. The headlights will be located BELOW the chrome crossbar A tasteful hood scoop remains All new towing mirrors are on the way Marker lights are also most likely LED. What do you think?
  3. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/16/18 General Motors is hard at work testing the next generation of Heavy-Duty Silverado and Sierra pickups. The 2020 model has recently been undergoing cold weather testing, which is really no surprise as it's "winter" in North America right now. Our Spy Photographer recently put together a HUGE 46 image MEGA SET of 2020 Silverado HD photos. We just had to share. Here's what our photographer says: 2020 GM HD Chassis Cab Shows New DEF Tank Placement Our first look a the 2020 GM HD Chassis Cab flatbed gives us a nice peek underneath, giving some new details of the rear suspension set-up, and the positioning of the DEF tank for the Duramax diesel. The DEF tank on the current Duramax diesels from GM is mounted quite low—and very visibly—on the front passenger side of the frame. The massive tank’s placement has been oft-criticised by diesel fans, as awkward and ugly. The DEF tank placement on 2020 HD Diesel trucks has changed—as revealed in our profile shot of the chassis cab prototype. The new DEF tank now appears to reside close to the DEF additive cap, on the driver’s side behind the rear wall of the regular cab. 2020 GM HD Regular Cab Work Truck This Regular Cab/Long Box prototype shows the next-gen Chevy HD in its most work-focused form. The Regular Cab HD prototype, caught in these latest spy shots, gets the long eight-foot bed design, for the most versatile payload possibilities. GM touted new stamping methods which reportedly increased the usable bed width by 7-inches on the 2019 Chevy Silverado, so it’s likely we’ll see a similar gain in bed capacity on these HD models. If that’s the case, this gargantuan long-bed option will be even more voluminous, making it ready to handle an even larger work load. This Regular Cab prototype was gasoline-powered, so we’re likely looking at the 2020 version of what is now powered by a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 engine. It’s safe to assume that the gas powerplant under this HD’s hood is utilizing new Dynamic Skip Fire (DSF) technology to enhance the cylinder cut-off performance. DSF technology finally bowed in some versions of the 2019 Silverado, and it’s a certainty that it will be part of the 2020 HD mpg-enhancing tricks. 2020 Duramax Crew Cab Our latest shots of the 2020 HD Duramax Crew Cab—which provide some of our closest, most-detailed look yet at new HD trucks—were caught as the prototype made a lap around the GM Proving Grounds. A close look at the camouflage on the at the center of the front edge of the hood reveals a mesh panel that will allow air to enter into the Ram Air slot hidden on the hood. The Ram Air hood scoop was added to GM’s HD trucks in the last update, and they’re said to feed up to 60% of the cooling air required by the engine, increasing horsepower and torque. The camouflage mesh panel has velcro taps at the front and back, which would clearly allow for the panel to be folded back and secured to allow more air-flow, as testing permits. The exhaust tips are consistent with prior GM HD diesel trucks, and it looks like we can see evidence of venturi air slits along the initial span of the exhaust pipe. The new shots give us our best look yet the massive grille that appears to be in store for GM’s next-gen HD trucks. A deep dive into the specs of the recently-unveiled 2019 Silverado 1500 revealed some of the tricks that are also likely destined for the HD truck. The camouflage hides any evidence of Silverado 1500’s innovative front fascia aerodynamic air curtains, but that’s not surprising, since that design revelation made it all the way to its debut without being leaked. Expect the same stamping, and packaging innovations that debuted on the 2019 models to translate to the HD models, for increased bed space and cabin space. It’s clear from these prototypes that GM’s next-gen HD pickups will be massive beasts to match the Ford Super Duty. 2020 GM HD 3500 Dually Crew Cab We’ve included our earlier shots of the HD Dually prototype that originally signaled the start of testing for GM’s 2020 HD pickups. The Crew Cab Dually is a massive thing, impressive in size, and amplified by what appears to be a more larger grille destined for GM's next-gen HD trucks. The prototype’s caught here appear to the Chevy Silverado HD variants, with judging by the horizontal nature of the placeholder LED signatures that are in visible through the frontal camouflage.
  4. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/13/2017 Just in time for a huge March Nor'Easter, we're getting our first opportunity to drive the heavily updated 2017 Silverado HD on our home turf. For the next few days, we're parking this Silverado in the GM-Trucks.com Garage. Since this 2500HD is also packing the "increased strength" 6.6L Duramax Diesel Engine with 910 lb-ft of torque, we're already lining up things to tow and haul around. From now until Friday we're going to share our week with you as temporary owners of the most powerful consumer HD truck on the market today. Our example HD is equipped as follows 2017 Silverado 2500 HD LT Double Cab 4WD Staring Price- $43,796 Notable options 6.6L Duramax Diesel - $9,340 18" Chrome Aluminum Wheels - $1,295 Trailering Equipment Package - $575 LT Convenience Package - $1,425 Trailering Mirrors - $310 Five Camera Trailer System 5th wheel prep - $370 (I think this falls under "Provisions Special Equipment") Total Suggested Price: $62,575 Be a part of this review!

  5. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11/1/2016 You might have heard that Chevy and Carhartt have recently teamed up to develop a Concept Silverado HD. If you're at this year's 2016 SEMA show, you'll be able to see this fine piece of work yourself. If you're not one of the lucky enthusiasts that made it to Las Vegas this year, don't sweat it. We've got you covered. This morning I traveled to the Chevrolet Performance booth and took a look at the concept in person. To be perfectly honest, I didn't understand what the big deal with this Concept Silverado was until I gazed at it with my own eyes. The press photos that have been floating around didn't point out the small touches that the brand applied to this concept. In short, the Silverado HD Carhartt is classic, smooth, and a damn fine Chevy. If you get a chance to see the Carhartt Silverado in person in the future, you won't be disappointed. Until then, enjoy these photos from the 2016 SEMA Show. And if you want more info on this Concept Truck, check out the full details right here.
  6. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 8/18/2016 GM-Trucks.com can exclusively bring to you the first solid numbers that may confirm the updated towing capacity of the 2017 Silverado HD when equipped with the all new L5P Duramax Diesel Engine.

  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 2/15/2016 General Motors 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500, GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 models and some Police Tahoes are being recalled because the brakes could fail. NHTSA says, "On the affected vehicles, the brake pedal pivot nut may loosen, causing the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative." The recall notice goes on to explain that, that "If the brake pedal becomes loose or inoperative, the driver may be unable to stop the vehicle by using the brake pedal. Additionally, a loose pedal may also interfere with the accelerator pedal. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash." If you have a vehicle you want to check on, you can do so right here.
  8. Digital Assist Steering A new feature in 2016 is Digital Steering Assist. The idea is Silverado can and will automatically adjust for road crown while towing or empty. The feature is available on double cab and crew cab models but will not be available on WT or regular cab. Midnight Edition The Midnight Edition jumps up to LT trimmed HD pickups in 2016, although not many details have been released yet. Only these photos, taken at the State Fair of Texas gives us a hint of what's on tap. Chevy will also offer Silverado Custom for WT models, Custom Sport on LT and LTZ models and a Z71 Off Road package on 4WD LT and LTZ trim. Updated MyLink Silverado HD will receive the same MyLink upgrades that Silverado 1500 will get this model year including Apply CarPlay available this fall and Android Auto next spring. New J2807 Towing Standards Chevrolet is also releasing updated towing numbers for the 2016 HD that conform with new towing standards. Maximum 2500HD conventional trailering rating of 14,500 pounds (6,577 kg) Maximum 2500HD fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailering rating of 18,000 pounds (8,165 kg) Maximum 3500HD single-rear-wheel conventional trailering rating of 15,000 pounds (6,804 kg) Maximum 3500HD single-rear-wheel fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailering rating of 17,500 pounds (7,938 kg) Maximum 3500HD dual-rear-wheel conventional trailering rating of 20,000 pounds (9,072 kg) Maximum 3500HD dual-rear-wheel fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailering rating of 23,200 pounds (10,523 kg)
