After being completely redesigned for 2019, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 continues to improve with more updates for the 2020 model year. The Silverado hasn’t earned its reputation as the most dependable and longest-lasting full-size pickup on the road
by settling, which is why the 2020 Silverado 1500 adds a new engine option that delivers great power and the best fuel economy of any truck today.
You can choose from among eight trim levels on the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country.
Powertrains and Performance
With six impressive engine options, the Silverado 1500 gives you the power of choice. The most impressive choice is arguably the 6.2-liter V8, which delivers best-in-class V8 power and towing3 with 420 horsepower and up to 13,400 pounds of max trailering capability,4 respectively. The newest addition to the Silverado family is the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel inline-six, available for the Silverado LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country. Delivering 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque and returning 33 mpg on the highway, the power Duramax® offers incredible balance that you’ll appreciate every time you climb behind the wheel.
One of the centerpiece features of the new Silverado is Durabed, the most functional bed of any pickup in the segment.3 With Durabed, you get 12 standard tie-downs, which is three times more than the competition offers,5 as well as the reliability of lighter and stronger high-strength roll-formed steel. With up to 20 percent more standard cargo volume than other trucks, best-in-class standard and long bed width, and best-in-class bed length for the standard and sort beds, the Durabed is the uncontested king of functionality and versatility.
With eight trim options, several packages to choose from, and so many accessories to enhance your ride, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is by no means a one-size-fits-all truck. Make it your own when you visit us at Don Larson GM.
