2020 Silverado 3500 Heavy-Duty Spy Shots Offered Up Courtesy of Pickuptrucks.com
Spy shots have always been an element of the automotive game that gets immediately exciting: there is nothing as effective for mounting tension for a new release by the means of spreading spy shots around on YouTube and blogs. All of us here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis recognize that it may get a bit tiresome to see cars in camouflage instead of fully uncovered before a new release, but not seeing the entire package is one of those elements of the playbook that any manufacturer can recognize the benefits of.
The Chevrolet heavy-duty pickups that are being spotted in the latest offerings of spy shots offer a pretty good look at the shape and size of the 3500 dually models, and while Chevy has completely pulled all of the wraps and covering off of a few variants of the new HD earlier, these were only 2500 crew-cab models, featuring standard beds. These shots give an all-important first look at the regular and double-cab varieties, clearly showing the dually box sporting flares that will be added to the one-ton models. After just a quick peek at these pics, we can all tell here that these new trucks won’t be akin to the shy attendee of the high school dance, and will be front and center as far as aggressive appearance and appeal.
The regular-cab 2500 HD work-truck dually derives power from the updated Duramax diesel V8, and the brand-new Allison 10-speed transmission. The new gasoline V8 is currently expected to up the ante on current GM power and torque ratings: the new 6.6-liter V-8 is reportedly seeing a jump up to 400 horsepower, and 450 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 HD comes in five trim levels: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country. The High Country gets a more traditional grille with a bowtie logo, and we are all very excited about this line of trucks that promises to be the most capable and advanced ever offered.
The only body panel that the new Silverado HD’s are slated to share with the regular 1500 is the roof, and everything else on deck is totally new. Some claim that the front end has an “alien-like” appearance, but we have all really liked how it boosted the aggression factor up a notch, as well as the surfacing on the sides of the HD being much smoother. Significant increases are on deck for towing figures, and the 2500 along with the 3500 HD are supposed to make their formal debuts at the Chicago auto show next month. This is the trusty and contractor-ready truck that the Jalopnik blog claimed of its stance: “Gaze upon it and weep,” and slaying entire villages while conquering your to-do list is not too far out of the question!
