Trucks are not what they used to be back in the 1960s and 1970s. You simply don’t get the same reliability that customers used to enjoy back in the day. Today what you get are bells and whistles instead of the truck that is built to last and serve come rain come sunshine. Well, it seems that manufacturers are starting to realize that customers want value for money. Not vehicles that not only look tough, but also can deliver some level of reliability. A case in point is the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD as far as we can tell. In this article, we are going to look at 10 Things to Know about the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD.
1. New Frame
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD rests on a new frame that is different from that of its predecessor. The new frame will allow it to carry more loads without adding to its overall weight. For consumers, that means they get to enjoy increased fuel efficiency, and still haul more loads. If you are looking for a workhorse, then the use of the new frame is definitely welcome news.
2. New Body Panels
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD has body panels that resemble those of its smaller counterpart. The panels give it a burlier look, but without adding extra weight. That also seems to be the trend with most parts of the truck, whereby lighter material are used whenever possible.
3. Big Back Seat
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will have big back seats that will also have some storage space beneath them as well as behind them. Moreover, their design is such that your comfort or legroom will not be affected by that convenient design.
4. Tail Gate
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD has a powered tailgate that allows you to open it with a button mounted in the cabin, or even a key fob. Moreover, its truck bed is extra spacious, allowing you to carry more loads when going out to camp or a work site.
5. Storage Capacity on the Truck Bed
If there is something that the 2020 Chevrolet double cabin provides you with in abundance is secure storage space. The truck bed has some storage compartments just above the Left and Right rear fenders. The compartments are lockable, meaning you can secure some items there and not worry about someone lifting them when you park the truck.
6. Truck Bed Protection
The Chevrolet Silverado HD has a truck bed covered with carbon fiber plastic, which offers additional protection when carrying all kinds of cargo. You therefore do not have to worry about rust or scratch marks on the truck bed.
7. Truck Bed Tie-downs
The truck’s bed has several tie-downs that you may use to secure your loads. Twelve of them are stationary, and you will get an additional set of nine that will be offered to you as an accessory. The tie downs will come in handy when driving on a safari or through a rough terrain in general.
8. Dynamic Skip Fire Technology
The DSF technology that is also available in its predecessor allows this truck to save fuel selectively under certain conditions. The self-shutting system can control fuel consumption automatically at different cruising conditions. The DSF will come in handy when you are stuck in traffic and you need to lower fuel efficiency.
9. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD has a roof, bed, and fenders that are made of steel.
The lighter material has been used for areas that are exposed to less compression and torsion forces such as the doors, tailgate, and hood. That design helped to keep the overall weight down, without compromising on performance and the need to keep the weight down.
10. Evolving Face
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD has a prominent chrome appliqué that bisects the grille and the headlights, with the brand name “Chevrolet” inscribed on it. The text takes the places of the traditional bow tie logo. A brand name cleanly marked on the face or a truck or any vehicle is one of the best marketing strategies. It seems that Chevrolet is trying to strike a balance between brand marketing and brand design for their 2020 Silverado HD.
Overall, those are among the top features to expect from the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. We hope that you look forward to the release of this truck as much as we do.
