A few days after we got a look at the changes for the 2020 Sierra, Chevrolet is letting on to what's going to change for the 2020 Silverado. Surprise, it's actually some significant stuff. 

 

More 6.2L

First up, the 6.2L makes its long awaited move to trim levels below LTZ. Now Custom Trail Boss, RST, and LT Trail Boss trim levels can also order the 420 horsepower engine option. As owners of a 2019 LTZ with the 6.2L , we highly recommend it. 

 

More 10-speed

LT Trail Boss and High Country with the 5.3L engine will upgrade to the all new 10-speed transmission. This move was more expected as GM flushes out the 10-speed into more models and slowly phases out the 8-speed and 6-speed transmissions its sold for years. 

 

A New 3.0L Diesel

The new light duty Duramax makes it's debut in 2020. It will be available on LT, RST, and above trim levels.  This engine will also come with the new 10-speed transmission. 

 

Smaller changes

Other additions to the lineup for 2020 include adaptive cruise control and a new "transparent trailer" camera system that displays up to 15 different views. 

 

Order Guide

     (GE0) Oakwood Metallic

So these are real pics of a 2020 TB Custom with the 6.2L huh? 

 

Thus, the only noticeable exterior difference (on this model, at least) is the addition of the chrome “6.2L” badges on the hood.

Looks the same as it is now. You cannot currently tell which engine the TB has and there is no badging on this "2020" model from the photos.

Lol ultimate troll by Chevrolet. 85% of 2019 Trail Boss owners are flipping out right now. I bet you will see thousands of 2019 TB's on the used lots next year as they will re-order the truck they wanted in the first place. Smart move by GM, cash in on the Techy's that have to be the first in line to get that new iPhone...

The new generation of truck buyers are not chrome polishers, but I would concur with your assessment.

Chrome has been out for over 10 years now. Body color match or black special ordering chrome should be the new way😂 The 5.3 fits most needs so they pumped those trucks out 1st no surprise. This truck is gonna be around for awhile they can’t just pump out special orders all the time.  With any new vehicle so much money and time is invested they have to get a certain production number of the trucks . Now they got a million ready they can start putting out want people want instead of what the company needs to do 1st. 

It’s gonna help a lot of people get into these trucks with super low miles. 2021 models you can bet are gonna have a interior upgrade only thing left to do🤘

Translation-Our truck sales are down 15% from last year due to the ugly redesign for 2019. We are throwing EVERYTHING against the wall to raise sales.

      Has anyone experienced a similar issue? I have a 2019 Silverado trail boss and when you turn the fan on, whether it’s ac or heater, there is a noise that is not normal. It comes from the passenger side inside the dash area. It’s not a loud noise and if the stereo is on you won’t hear it. It sounds like the fan motor is off. 
      I wouldn’t bother taking it in if all trucks made the noise but they don’t. I had the dealership take me in another trail boss and there was no sound, just normal wind sound. 
      They changed a bearing saying that was the issue but it is still making the same noise. The second time I brought it in they said they are reporting it to GM. I brought it in today and the service desk worker said it’s “normal”. I asked why the others don’t make the noise and he said it’s “normal”. Obviously not normal or they would all make the same sound.
       
      Anyone know what it is??

      Looking for some tire recommendations for my 2018 Z71 Silverado 4x4. I currently have a Moro fab lift (3” in the front and 2” in the rear) and am looking to run 33’s. Anyone running 275/70r18’s or 285/70/r18’s or 285/75/r18’s? Drop pictures and recommendations if you have them. Looking to keep my stick 18” rims.

      Good morning everyone! I'm currently in Bend Oregon getting ready to spend my day driving the all new 2020 Silverado HD. I wanted to share my experience with you and will be posting photos as the day goes on. I'm embargoed on some info until next weekend but can share as many pics as I can post. 
       
       Crossing my fingers I have a good phone signal most of the day.
