2020 Silverado Highlight
Think about the last time you saw a truck advertisement. You probably remember seeing a truck rampaging through the snow, pulling itself up a muddy incline, or towing a large package somewhere rugged. That’s advertising, but it’s not out of the ordinary to expect that from a truck.
If you looked at that advertisement and thought, “that’s exactly the type of truck I want,” then you’re looking for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado as your next vehicle.
The Silverado has been the optimal American truck since its unveiling in the late 1990s. It is a rugged, durable American classic for a reason. With impressive towing functionality, space, and a clean and aesthetically-pleasing design, it is hard not to be drawn in by the Chevrolet Silverado. However, the 2020 version has undergone many changes, which has put it at the top of our list for trucks to keep an eye on in the new decade.
Here is a brief highlight of the impressive Chevrolet Silverado.
It wouldn’t be a new decade without new offerings from one of Chevrolet’s best-selling trucks. Although the 2019 reveal was highly-anticipated, the 2020 Silverado is just as exciting with these new offers.
- Diesel options are now available for the LT, LST, LTZ, and High-Country trims. This option was initially slated to be available in 2019, but it rolled out a little late in 2020.
- The 10-speed automatic transmission is available for more trim options – and any of their options with a 6.2-liter engine or higher.
- More trims can access the 6.2 Liter V8 engine.
- Adaptive cruise control is becoming more and more commonplace as an option on cars, and now the 2020 Silverado has it. Adaptive cruise control is advanced camera technology, which allows front-facing cameras to detect when a vehicle has come too close to an object in front of it when cruise control is set on the car. Before, the driver would have to manually adjust the cruise control, which could make for hard and sometimes dangerous breaks while driving. With adaptive cruise control, the front-facing camera adjusts cruise control speed based on how close you are to the car in front of you, braking if need be.
Additionally, Chevrolet has amped up the tech options available, meaning that Silverado owners can experience an upgrade from the inside out.
For those who like options when purchasing their cars, the 2020 Silverado won’t disappoint. The Silverado comes standard with eight different trims.
The LT is your classic, go-to truck for a truck that does it all. Day-running lamps, LED headlights, and a chrome accents pair with high performance. Even at its most basic, the Silverado LT trim option is still a step above.
The High Country Trim looks pretty, but for all it looks the part, it also has some great features that other trims don’t have – as we put it on our website, it “represents the best Silverado has to offer.” This includes a bronze and chrome finish, exclusive grille, and a power-up and power-down tailgate, which is the first of its kind in the whole auto industry.
The LTZ Trim is sleek and classy, offering excellent towing and work capabilities but with a touch of class in the interior. With leather seats, auto start and stop, an HD rear-facing camera, remote start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and more, you get one step above the basic package but with a whole lot more.
For the off-roader, few other Chevy machines hold up to the Chevy Trail Boss. Available in Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss, you get off-roading options like a 2-inch factory lift, knobby tires, as well as the option for a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine with dynamic fuel management or the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8.
The RST trim creates a sophisticated and unified look to the Chevrolet Silverado, with body-color bumpers, LED lighting, as well as the EZ Lift power lock and release tailgate. For those looking for a truck that performs well on the road and off the road, the RST does the job.
The Custom trim looks a lot like the LTZ trim but has its own flair. Custom has body-color bumpers and center grille bar, like the LTZ. However, it also has deep-tinted glass and 20-inch bright silver-painted aluminum wheels for a little extra edge.
The Silverado Work Truck, or WT Trim, provides the comforts of the Silverado with high work performance. With a higher-performing engine standard (the 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine), you can expect the WT to get the job done.
Engine and Performance Updates
Chevrolet has always championed upgrade options for its customers, and this extends to the engine options. The 2020 Chevy Silverado has multiple engine upgrade options available. This includes the V-6, two separate V-8 options, a 4-cylinder turbo, and a diesel engine.
Regardless of the trim selected, the 2020 Chevy Silverado will provide power options for work and play. The maximum available trailering load is 13,400 pounds, perfect for those who tow large loads for work or recreation. The maximum truck payload is 2,250 lbs – exceeding many of its competitors. Finally, its maximum torque is 460 pounds per foot.
As the demands of truck owners evolve, so to do truck capabilities. We are proud to say that even our base models meet all the basic needs our truck customers are looking for – and then some.
