What does the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 have to offer in 2020

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 definitely deserves to earn the title of Pickup of the Year for three simple reasons: powertrain, towing capacity, and advanced technology. A few subtle changes done to the Silverado 2019 has resulted in Chevrolet introducing a supreme workhorse in the heavy hauling market. Multiple engine options, trim variants, and customization make it a pickup worth the price tag.

Let us explore what all the Silverado has to offer in 2020.

When it comes to power, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 really ups the ante this time with multiple engine options. Right from the highly fuel-efficient Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel to the more powerful 6.2L V8, you can pick a powertrain of your choice depending on your load requirements. Most trim variants feature multiple engines that you can select and confirm for the build. Choose the right motor and you’ve got yourself a sweet ride to haul heavy loads running cross country. The dynamic fuel management system helps you save dollars on the gallon, making the Silverado a popular choice among pickup trucks.

Towing capacity
One of the major changes done to improve the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the increase of the payload and towing capabilities. And the biggest engine block, the 6.2L V8 EcoTec3 engine, does a stellar job of managing a 2250 lbs.-payload on the truck bed or trailering 13400 lbs. for long distances. While doing this, the pickup still maintains a healthy fuel economy.

Trim variants
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers eight trim variants. The High Country trim is a great choice for rough terrain and uphill driving with an improved and externally-enhanced chassis. The LTZ is a premium variant that shines (literally) with a beautiful chrome finish and aluminum wheels. The LT Trail Boss is an excellent off-road driving variant that can tackle the terrain and handle the weather elements. The RST is a street show stopper with a beautiful design and color scheme. For a classic look and drive, the LT is one of the popular and standard choices among trims. When you are serious about your hauling needs, customization is key, and that is exactly what the Custom Trail Boss offers. The base custom option is also a better improvement on the original Silverado 1500. Finally, the Silverado Work Truck is your best urban drive option.

Infotainment system
The central control dashboard controls all the electronics and peripherals attached to the infotainment system. Among notable features are the in-vehicle trailering system, trailering tech, and the myChevrolet Mobile app that can be synced to the entire system. You can monitor your trailer on the go without the need to stop and check tire pressure, battery, and vital electrical connections. All the information is available in real-time on-screen inside the air-conditioned cab. The high-tech trailer features also offer assists while driving to improve trailer traction and control. Best of all, access updated pickup and trailer info at all times using the smartphone application.
