With over 100 years of experience, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 continues to deliver a pickup that keeps getting bigger and stronger than the generation that preceded it. In 2020, bigger is undoubtedly better as the Silverado comes in two powerful V8 engines as well as a 35,500-pound towing ability. A big vehicle comes with a big interior as the 2020 Silverado 2500 can seat up to six passengers in the roomy crew cab. The easy to use controls and clean layout are sure to be high selling points as is the Silverado’s long bed, which measures out to an impressive 83.5 cubic feet.
The 2020 Silverado 2500 provides you with two robust engine options that long-time fans are sure to love. First, the Silverado comes with two available engines, the standard 6.6-liter gasoline-powered V8 and an optional Duramax 6.6-liter turbodiesel. If you’re looking to haul a lot of material, it’s recommended that you go with turbodiesel as it makes towing a priority, though the gasoline-powered V8 is still impressive as it boasts 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque which provides you with terrific acceleration and a decent payload capability. The diesel engine is paired with a brand-new 10-speed Allison automatic transmission, while the gasoline engine gets a 6-speed automatic transmission. According to our article source at Matthews-Hargreaves Chevrolet (Royal Oak, MI) the diesel models also get an exhaust-braking system and a factory-installed power take-off.
If you are looking for features, the 2020 Silverado 2500 is packed to the brim with them. With five available trims, this heavy-duty pickup comes with options such as air conditioning, LED taillights, chrome rear bumper and a 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The further up the trim ladder you go will give you features such as dual-zone climate control, 10-way power-operated and heated front seats, an upgraded audio system and a Digital Variable Steering Assist system for better refinement. Top-line High Country models provide you with BOSE audio, power tailgate, high-intensity headlights. The 2020 Silverado 2500 also comes with the option of 4-wheel drive as well as a variety of safety options including blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and an Advanced Trailering System. A Z71 Off-Road Package is available and gives you options such as Rancho shocks, hill-decent control, and skid plates. For those who are planning on hauling a lot of heavy loads, it’s recommended that you go with the gooseneck/5th wheel package.
All these options are great, but how does it look? Well, let’s say the 2020 Silverado 2500 makes a statement. The heavy-duty pickup not only boasts a large grille that is taller than some humans, but it also boasts a new Dura Bed with a class-leading 83.5 cubic feet. A slick feature is the enlarged corner steps and side steps that make the Silverado 2500 easier to access. Trailer-row mirrors come standard as does a power-operated liftgate.
