The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will have a starting price cheaper than the 2019 model just as with the GMC Sierra.
More good news for fans of big trucks from GM. The 2020 Silverado HD pricing has been announced and the most basic version of the pickup will have a starting price that was cheaper than the 2019 model.
The base truck, which is a regular cab, long bed, 2-wheel-drive, Silverado 2500 Work Truck will start at $35,695, which is $1,900 cheaper than the current 2019 model Silverado 2500. The Silverado 3500 Work Truck in the same configuration will start at $36,895. Both of these are also cheaper than the 2020 Sierra HD, which will start at $37,195.
Why the cheaper price? As with GMC, Chevrolet is now offering regular cab versions of the Silverado HD, which means the Work Truck will come with just two doors and two side windows. Double cab and extended cab options are still available, but of course, they cost a little extra.
Also as with GMC, the Silverado HD will have a new engine lineup that brings in a new 6.6-L V8 engine with 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. That engine comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 6.6-L Duramax turbodiesel V8 returns from last year’s model with 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic delivers that torque to either the rear or all four wheels.
Towing is also up from last year. The Silverado 2500 now has a maximum towing figure of 18,500 lbs, which is 500 more than last year. The 3500 HD can now tow up to 35,500 lbs when equipped with an extra wheel, which is up from 23,100 lbs last year.
Of course, no many people are going to opt for the absolute cheapest Silverado HD there is, and the higher trims are slightly more expensive than the 2019 models as expected. The full rundown of pricing can be found below.
