Vehicle Profile: 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
For more than 100 years, the Chevrolet name has been synonymous with hard-working, high-quality, American-made trucks. This century-long legacy of excellence expands even further with the new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — the strongest and most advanced Silverado ever made. Smarter, stronger and more stylish than any Silverado before, the 2020 Silverado 1500 represents the brightest light to shine in 100 years of brilliance.
Six powerful engine options
Choice is an essential part of what makes today’s Chevrolet Silverado 1500 the best yet. You have the choice of six engine options, each offering exceptional power, efficiency and capability. There’s no choice mightier than the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management, which puts down best-in-class V8 horsepower* and torque to enable best-in-class 13,400 pounds of towing potential.**
Chevrolet also lays claim to the most efficient pickup truck on the road today thanks to the Silverado’s available 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo Diesel. This quiet and powerful diesel engine returns an incredible 33 mpg on the highway, helping you cut down significantly on fuel costs.*** Yet its 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque make it a powerful choice, perfect for getting jobs done with ease.
Best-in-class cargo capacity
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 promises the most functional bed of any pickup with Durabed. Unlike other trucks, Chevrolet sticks with durable and reliable roll-formed high-strength steel to give you the utmost confidence when transporting heavy payloads. What’s more, it offers three times more standard tie-downs than any competing truck, and it provides up to 20 percent more standard cargo volume than the competition. With best-in-class standard cargo volume, best-in-class standard and long bed width, and best-in-class short and standard bed length, Durabed is the uncontested champion of getting work done.
You can get even more functionality out of your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with an available hitch, cargo box, and perimeter lighting, which makes it easier to keep working after the sun calls it quits. With an available 120-volt outlet, plugging in accessories and staying linked up is also no problem after a long day. The Silverado 1500 is also the first truck on the market to offer a power-up/-down tailgate, which allows you to raise and lower the tailgate by simply pressing a button on your key fob. With features like these, even the toughest jobs don’t stand a chance.
Space and style inside
When the day is done, you can count on solace and comfort when you retreat to the cabin of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Silverado isn’t just accommodating for the worksite; with best-in-class front headroom and legroom and more rear passenger space than the previous generation, it’s also a surprisingly effective choice for your next family vehicle. Added to this are premium surfaces and materials in trims like the LTZ and High Country and innovative technologies like an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot that provides high-speed internet for up to seven devices.
There’s never been a truck quite like the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Smarter, stronger and better in almost every conceivable way, the new Silverado is the standard-bearer for the segment and a testament to the longstanding excellence of Chevrolet trucks.
