Several advanced driver-assistance technologies are available on the new 2020 Silverado 2500HD, and Chevy isn’t shy about including them as standard and available starting at the lower trim levels. Your new Silverado will be your best friend on the road, giving you a heads up when danger is imminent. Front pedestrian braking alerts the driver, and may even brake automatically to prevent a pedestrian collision. If a vehicle ahead is detected to be dangerously close, forward automatic braking reduces the risk of a front-end collision. Using forward-looking cameras, adaptive cruise control helps you maintain a safe distance from the rest of traffic. By adjusting to the ebb and flow of the rate of travel, you won’t need to worry about braking and accelerating as often.
Lane change alert with side blind zone alert helps prevent crashes when vehicles are in your blind spot. Lane keep assist with lane departure warning gently steers your vehicle back into the center of the lane when drifting off course without your turn signal. When you’re backing up, the rear cross traffic alert helps you identify traffic or obstructions behind you. While none of these technologies is a substitute for attentive driving habits, they can help you stay safer on the road. Additionally, the available 15-inch multi-color heads up display to keep your eyes on the road while getting all alerts, along with helpful navigation and speed information.
Feel more confident trailering with Chevy’s advanced tools. The StabiliTrak electronic stability control system makes for a smoother ride over rocky roads. Set your truck into tow/haul mode for added control when you’re moving some serious weight. Digital variable steering assist is available to improve precision while navigating. It has the uncanny ability to automatically adjust your steering to reduce the effort required for different road conditions, speed, and other inputs.
If you’re stopped on a hill, park grade hold assist keeps your truck firmly in place by enhancing the brakes on all four wheels. Finally, auto grade braking ensures a safe drive until you reach your destination to unload. These innovative features help you stay safe while carrying a heavy tow through rough terrain. Afterall, what good is having a heavy-duty truck if you’re too nervous to take advantage of its full capability? A well-equipped Silverado 2500HD will put your mind at ease. Its combination of trailering safety features provides the perfect set-up for success. Altogether, these combined features will make that 18,500 lbs of towing capacity feel like nothing.
