What We Like

  • Broad range of powertrain options
  • Full-featured trailering technology
  • Superior ride quality, laden or unladen

What We Don't

  • Complicated trim level and availability chart makes getting the right combination challenging
  • Maximum towing for the new diesel peaks at 9,300 pounds, less than the competition and less than Silverado with 6.2-liter V8 (13,400 pounds)

Overview

What's New in the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500?

The Silverado brings forward the changes it saw in the 2019 model year: a new platform, a new exterior, a new interior and new engine and transmission choices.

For 2020, a new diesel engine is available on LT, RST, LTZ and High Country models. The Duramax 3.0-liter is a turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine with an all-aluminum construction rated at 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, with a redline of 5,100 rpm. Like the 6.2-liter gasoline V8 engines in the Chevy truck lineup, the diesel uses a 10-speed automatic transmission with either rear-wheel drive or available 4-wheel drive.

On the gasoline engine side, the 6.2-liter gasoline V8 engine is now available on Trail Boss and RST models. A Performance Upgrade Package is now available for the Silverado 6.2-liter, adding a performance air intake and cat-back performance exhaust system to raise output to 435 hp and 469 lb-ft of torque.

The expanded towing technologies that were previously introduced on the 2020 Silverado HD will now be available for the 2020 Silverado 1500, including 15 unique camera views, and access to the iN-Command Control System from ASA Electronics to provide trailer controls.

Adaptive Cruise Control is available for the first time in 2020, using a single high-mounted camera behind the rearview mirror to maintain a safe cruising distance from the vehicle ahead. See the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado models for sale near you
