Chevrolet Silverado HD - what's with that face?

Chevrolet has pulled back what must have been a very, very big sheet on its 2020 Silverado 2500HD, with a new look created to better separate it from the "regular duty" Silverado 1500 launched earlier this year.

Built in Michigan, GM says the 2020 Silverado HD's design has a bold, sculpted form that follows its enhanced heavy-duty function, differentiating it from its light-duty brother. From the front, the Silverado HD looks like the stuff rookie drivers' nightmares are made of, with the truck now sporting a lettered grille instead of Chevy's iconic bowtie. Surprisingly, the roof is the only sheetmetal it shares with the 1500. With steps already integrated into the rear bumper, bed access will be easier than ever, from all angles and positions.

"We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck". Technology will get a boost, too, though Chevrolet is saving details on that for February. You can either go for the all-new gasoline engine with direct injection (which is mated to a six-speed transmission), or the Duramax turbo-diesel V8 unit, which feeds a monster 910 lb-ft (1,233 Nm) of torque to the wheels through a new Allison 10-speed gearbox.

Billed by the company as their "most capable, most advanced Silverado Heavy Duty ever", the new Silverado HD serves as the company's third all-new pickup in 18 months and is tailor-made for grueling tasks and jobs.

This hasn't stop Chevy to give truck lovers an early Christmas gift by releasing a few details and several photos that show the heavy hauler in its full glory.

Here is one of the most boldly styled new trucks to come along since. well, since the new 2019 Silverado 1500 appeared with its polarizing looks.

As you can see, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is big.

Chevy will be making the new Silverado 2500/3500 at its truck plant in Flint, Mich., and says that sales will begin in mid-2019.
