What do you think Chevrolet was aiming for when creating its latest 2020 Chevy Silverado HD? Let me just say that the engineers had a real nut to crack, because this truck has to compete with the new Ford Super Duty with a 7.3-liter V8, or the Ram HD with a torque of 1355 Nm. That’s why the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD beats its competition in one aspect — slightly higher towing power.
However, this is only available with four-wheel drive, a 6.6-liter V8 Duramax turbodiesel engine that produces 445 horsepower and 1,233 Nm of torque. It’s not the newest power unit, but its combination with a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission means drivers with these Chevys will be able to tow 33,500 pounds (16,102 kg). This in turn necessitated a stronger frame, axles, drive shafts and drive shafts.
All the changes allowed the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD to beat the competition by 1%. That’s more than £400 more than the Ram HD and £500 more than the 2019 Super Duty. This Chevrolet truck will offer the same technology as the 2020 GMC Sierra, including a rear “look” feature for convenience. This truck will go on sale in the summer, so pricing information should be available in a few months.
