2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Drops Heavy Camo To Show 1500-Inspired Design

We’re getting closer to the launch of the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD pickup truck and these news spy photos prove that.

The heavy-duty pickup drops its heavy vinyl camo for the first time, giving us the best look yet at the design. The prototypes do wear a body-hugging camouflage foil but that doesn’t prevent us from spotting some of the key design details.

For starters, we get the best look yet at the new headlight design and its LED signature. As you can see, the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD mimics its smaller sibling and adopts two-piece headlamps. Unlike the 2019 Silverado 1500, though, each of the light units has a boomerang-shaped DRL signature.

The images also allow us to spot fragments of the massive front grille, which will feature “Chevrolet” lettering as a teaser revealed earlier this year. Interestingly, the 2020 Silverado HD adds integrated bed steps on each side. Located just behind the rear doors, they add to those integrated into the rear bumper, allowing an easy access to the bed from all four corners.

Scheduled to enter production in the third quarter of 2019, the 2020 Silverado HD will offer 2500HD, 3500HD, and 3500HD chassis cab configurations. Therefore, it will slot between the Silverado 1500 and the Silverado 4500/5500/6500HD that debuted earlier this year.

Engine options are unknown for now but the current Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD come with a standard 6.0-liter V8 that produces 360 hp (268 kW) and 380 lb-ft (514 Nm) of torque. A 6.6-liter Duramax V8 turbodiesel delivering 445 hp (331 kW) and 910 lb-ft (1,232 Nm) of torque is available as an option.
