Drivers of the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will have two powerful engine options to choose from, including a new 6.6L V8 gas engine and a Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 engine. The standard engine is more powerful than previous models, offering up to 401 hp and 464 lb-ft torque. However, the available turbo-diesel engine is even more impressive with horsepower ratings of up to 445 hp and up to 910 lb-ft of torque.
While the available gas engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, the turbo-diesel engine is paired with an all-new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission. This configuration is designed with power and capability in mind, offering a maximum towing capacity of up to 35,500 LBS when properly equipped.
Advanced towing technology also helps to improve the way drivers tow, which includes an all-new transparent trailer feature and up to 15 different camera views of your trailer for improved visibility. Drivers can also enjoy having the ability to use the myChevrolet app, which now included smart trailer integration. The Trailering App is also another beneficial technology, allowing drivers to view real-time trailer information like trailer tire pressure and electrical diagnostics all from the convenience of their smartphone.
Additional performance-based technologies include the Autotrac active 2-speed transfer case, which allows 4 x 4 models to automatically between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive based on the current road conditions. However, there are still more towing and hauling tools built into the 2020 Silverado 2500HD, including a vin-specific Trailering Information Label, which is a new introduction to any pickup truck class on the market. This feature gives drivers all of the most important information needed for towing and hauling all in one place, including the vehicle’s curb weight, GVWR, GCWR, GWAR, fifth wheel ratings, and Gooseneck ratings. Other additional technologies also include Trailer Sway Control, Proactive Rollover Assistance, Hill Start Assist, and Hill Descent Control, Auto Park Brake Assist, and an all-new Park Grade Hold Assist.
Overall, the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD offers a much higher level of performance than its previous models, which includes more power, capability, and plenty of high tech upgrades for even greater performance and capability. If you’re a tech-savvy driver, you’ll love being able to enjoy the numerous brand-new technologies available on the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD.
