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

 

Deletions 

     (GE0) Oakwood Metallic
     (PDT) High Country Premium Package
     (R13) WT Appearance Package

New Features 

     (DPO) and (DQS) Vertical Trailering Mirrors
     (KSG) Adaptive Cruise Control now included in (PDJ) Safety Package II

Changes 

     (MQB) 10-speed transmission is now standard on 4WD High Country models with (L84) 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 DFM engine and LT Trail Boss
     (UV2) HD Surround Vision is replaced with (UVS) HD Surround Vision with Two Trailer Camera Provisions
     (CWM) Technology Package now includes (UVN) Bed View Camera
     (PCV) WT Convenience Package is now available with (ZW9) pickup bed delete
     (PTT) Tire Pressure Monitor System becomes (PTT) Tire Pressure Monitor Sensors
     (V46) and (VJH) Chrome bumpers are now free flow on 1WT
     (Q5U) 17" Bight silver painted aluminum wheels are now free flow on 1WT

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.

What can I say? I have fine-tuned vision for chrome badging. Hence why I bought an RST!

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.

      Hey y'all, having issues with my 2015 Silverado. Towards the end of a 300+ mile road trip my truck's engine shut off while stopped at the turnoff of an exit. I restarted it drove to a gas station and then started it again to go home with no more issues. In the morning I had a hard start then drove to my job site and while I was waiting to go in parked in my parking spot the engine shut off again so I restarted it again. It ran about 5 minutes then shut off again. When i went to restart it my check engine light popped on, dash reads reduced engine power, and it will crank not start. I popped on my code reader and I am showing   three codes p1682, p0650, and p062b. I have 113k miles. Does anyone have any ideas????

      My issue is a little bit different however none the less an annoying one. So yesterday i bought some led bulbs off amazon to replace the dome lights in my truck, i got them opened them up all looks good and then go to put them in, and as i did they turned on not an issue however they where to small so i have to return them, i put the old one back in and not lights in the dash and dome lights are acting up. So it was the left front one i tried it in and took it back out no others. Now none of the lights turn on by the button inside the truck. (door lights and turning them on by the small switch which turns them all on works just fine. when the door is open i can now turn the light off by pressing the button. now those issues are a little less of a bother to me, however the radio (which still works perfect) now has no lights, same with the driver info center buttons 4wd actuator light and the lights on the steering wheel lights. All the buttons however still work perfect it is just the lights. Any help is much appreciated !

      Hey guys,
      I got a 2015 Silverado 5.3l. 138,250km. started ticking sometime last winter. Would happen instantly at start up and last about 5 minutes then would fade away. Sounded like a lifter. Took it to the dealer they said they couldn't hear it. Sound went away so left it.
      Fast forward to this winter and as Soon as the weather started to cool down I noticed the ticking again.
      Took it back to the dealer said they couldn't hear it again. I went and picked up my truck right at closing, soon as I fired her up the sound was there but everyone was gone so no one to hear it. I took a video. Next day I called the dealer, sent the video. Took like a week to get back to me. In the meantime I had taken videos pretty much every time I started it.
      Long story short after a brief fight with them about them trying to say it's normal etc they agreed that it sounded like a noise coming from the valve train. Left my truck with them, they called me said they had to change all lifters. Went to pick up my truck and on start up the sound is still there.
      This was a month ago. Sent more videos and a previous video from before they did the work and they are saying they can't hear it again.
      Took it in in person they agreed that there's an issue again and they will look at it. Now they are saying it's possible bad injector noise but they can't figure out which one 🙄.
      In the meantime I took it to another dealership they changed the vacuum pump. After that the sound changed. Now it's no longer at start up but once the truck has reached operating temperature and is more of a dull sound. Took it back to that same dealer who did the vacuum pump and they said valve train noise and deffo not injectors. But they won't work on it because the other dealer already did. 
      They didn't change the VLOM or the cam. I had/have no check engine lights. Truck runs awesome. Sometimes rough idle.
      Any ideas what it could be?
