Flint Plant 2020 Silverado Reveal Event

You guys want a reason why the DEF tank should have stayed where it was?


Gas fuel tank capacity (all cabs/wheelbase):  36 gallons.


Diesel fuel tank capacity:

RCLB:  28 gallons.

DCSB:  29.4 gallons.

DCLB:  36 gallons.

CCSB/CCLB:  36 gallons.


Double Standard box and RCLB lose fuel tank capacity on diesel. 


Also...3.73 gears on gas ONLY.  I'd like to know (other than fuel economy) why the 4.10 was dropped, unless they plan to add the 10L90 next year.  I get that there is more power, and I do see that the tow ratings are the same/more than a 4.10 with the 6.0, but still...


Duramax/A10 Allison gets 3.42 gears now too. 


And FINALLY...larger tires on the 18" and 20" wheels.  LT275/70/18 (same as Ford) on the 18", and LT275/65/20 on the 20".

higher towing rates great now just make it so anyone who buys it can tow that much with out having to go to tractor trailer school to do so and the expensive inspections on gvws over 10K lbs .

does anyone know what the gvw will be on the trucks ?





Max gcwr is listed as 43,500 for3500  reg cab, diesel, drw


All srw's are under 30,000 gcwr.

All 2500's are under 28,000

All gassers are under 24,000

Gassers have higher payload ratings than diesel. 


From the link:

 The 2020 Silverado HD also includes a VIN-specific Trailering Information Label, something no competitors has, that clearly lists the truck’s specific trailering metrics including curb weight, gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), gross combined weight rating (GCWR), max payload, max tongue weight, gross axle weight rating (GAWR) and fifth wheel and gooseneck ratings.

New video from Mr. Truck. Talks about a few interesting things like


- 6.6L torque is improved 20% across the entire RPM range, not just peak

- Torque peak has lowered to around 4000 RPM

- E85 is NOT available on the new 6.6L

- The 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package is mounted 3" behind the rear axle instead of directly over or in front of the rear axle
