2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Gains High Country Flagship Trim

In order to further expand their all-new 2020 Silverado HD lineup, Chevrolet has unveiled a range-topping High Country trim level, positioned above the Work Truck, Custom, LT and LTZ options.

Just like with the 2019 Silverado 1500, which by the way features eight distinct trim levels, the 2020 Silverado HD offers different levels of design, features and tech in order to meet the “individual and rigorous demands” of heavy duty truck buyers.

“Truck customers are very clear: They want the perfect truck for them and not a ‘one size fits most’ truck compromised for the masses,” stated Mike Simcoe, VP of global design for GM.

“That insight shaped our strategy for the next-generation Silverado franchise, providing customers more differentiation between the Silverado 1500 and the Silverado HD as well as more personalization and differentiation between individual trim levels.”

For 2020, each Silverado HD model boasts distinct exterior design details, such as grilles that have either the automaker’s stamped bar or its iconic bowtie. There’s also a mix of black, body color, chrome or two-tone metallic trim available just for the High Country version.

“We took into account every detail of what customers expect, and how they will use their truck,” added Simcoe. “The results are unique versions of the Silverado HD equally at home working on a construction site or pulling a camping trailer.”

Chevy’s all-new 2020 Silverado HD goes on sale in mid-2019, powered by either a new gasoline engine with direct injection or a Duramax turbo-diesel V8 unit, the latter boasting no fewer than 910 lb-ft (1,233 Nm) of torque.

    Well, the front of this does look quite a bit better than the last one we just saw a couple of days ago. This isn’t a bad looking truck.

    • Brian Regan

      I didn’t mind the Z71 from the other day (wouldn’t buy it just don’t hate it) but this definitely looks better. And for whatever the price premium it should.

  • Jay

    This isn’t bad, better than the base but don’t worry. I’m sure the GMC is going to look a lot better.

  • cbATL

    Guarantee any guy driving this has a small wiener and/or an undescended testicle(s).

    • kachuks

      Does that mean guys who drive a Prius have huge, veiny schlongs? Cause we usually ridicule them as being weak, girly men. Makes one wonder which car is the symbol of masculinity.

        The one that Fred Flinstone drive.

      • DJ

        Nope. Just means they are confident enough with themselves to not need a large imposing vehicle to reaffirm and advertise their masculinity or power. Same with woman and stupidly large SUV s

        Look, just because you have teenie weenie doesn’t mean you have to get salty with me. I can’t help I was born with a member the size of a baby arm.

      Does your “large weiner” stick out the window, when you drive your Fiat?

      • cbATL

        Look – no means NO. I will not send you pics of my large wiener.

  • Dennis Scipio

    it looks less bold and more attractive than the z71.

  • Bill Nguyen

    Goddamn that is ugly

  • Bash

    That face is ugly as.. damn it’s ugly!!!

  • TheBelltower

    Trashy. Dodge and Chevy are competing to see who can make their truck look like farm equipment.

  • schnittz

    Looking good!

  • EL CHAPO

    ok

  • erly5

    Unbelievably ugly.

  • donald seymour

    I absolutely love the design. It’s my cup of tea.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I’ve never liked the High Country edition Silverado’s, but this is quite nice. I still prefer the Z71 that came out a few days ago though.

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    Very tough and macho.

  • exeptor

    I feel strange – in general the design is a bit ugly or at least not handsome (not that a truck should be), but I like it. Looks purpose built.

  • Paul

    That sure is ugly. A face only a mother could love, Mother Barra that is. What are the designers thinking?

  • SteersUright

    Why is the hood so high? Its so much higher up than the side windows and while looking ugly as hell, it also can’t be good for visibility I’d imagine.

    • Ken Lyns

      Because to GM’s Aztek-minded designers, higher hood = bigger testicles.

  • DJ

    Looks like a cartoon truck lol
