It would not be surprising if you have already heard about the new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. This full-sized pickup truck came to get things done! There are two impressive available powertrain options to choose from, but no matter which one you decide upon, you will not leave disappointed. When it comes to power, towing, and convenience, this truck has it all. This year Chevrolet has come out with an all-new 6.6L V8 gas engine that is sure to impress. Or, if that doesn’t get you excited, the available legendary Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 paired with the all-new Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission most definitely will amp up your level of exhilaration. Let’s take a few minutes and go over some of the features that sets this truck apart from the rest of the pack.
First on our list to cover is towing. There is a reason that they have ended the name of this truck with “HD”. This truck redefines what it means to be “Heavy Duty”. If you are looking for towing capacity, then the Silverado HD is exactly where you should be looking. The 3500 HD Gooseneck configuration of this truck can tow a staggering maximum weight of 35,500 lbs. If that is a little too much power for you, then the 2500 HD can tow a maximum of 18,510 lbs.
One of the most beneficial recent innovations in the vehicle realm is the access we have to a variety of different camera views. When towing, there are so many factors that make or break a successful hauling trip. Chevrolet has taken the time to create an environment and provide tools to enable the driver to have the most successful towing experience possible. Depending on what camera packages you decide upon, there are up to 15 unique vehicle and towing camera views to help provide a more enjoyable towing experience.
The Transparent Trailer View allows you to virtually look “through” your box or camping trailer for easier visibility when towing. There is also a view that allows you to easily check the contents of your truck bed. If you need some extra help attaching the trailer to the truck, then the HD has you covered there too with the Hitch View camera. One of the coolest views that Chevrolet has available is what they call the Surround View. This extra special camera view enables you to get a complete bird’s eye view of the surrounding environment of your truck. All in all, the HD has five available parking views, four available hitch views, and six available driving views, all of which upgrade your driving and towing experiences like never before.
Above and beyond the incredible camera features the HD has to offer, there are some added technological features that will prove to be irreplaceable. Some of the available features provided by the myChevrolet Mobile app or through the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System include; trailer maintenance reminders, trailer tire pressure/temperature monitoring, exterior trailer lighting diagnostics, and pre departure checklists.
One final note about the towing features of the HD relates to the innovative tools that it delivers. There is a Tow/Haul Mode, Auto Grade Braking, their StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System, and Available Digital Variable Steering Assist, all of which are available to raise your confidence in any towing situation.
Let’s talk for a quick minute on the conveniences that the HD has to offer. We all know that towing is a major part of the need for a truck. However, when it comes right down to it, the little things sometimes make all the difference. It now offers an increase in cabin space, available wireless charging pad, and up to six USB data ports. And let’s not forget about the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot capabilities it offers, so you will never be without the connectivity you need.
This year’s Silverado HDs have some new available storage solutions. There is an available 24-liter under seat storage compartment along with the in-seatback storage compartments, which adds a level of packing/storing convenience that is hard to compete with.
If you are carting around some off-roading toys, then this truck can do that. If you are packing around some larger things like livestock, the HD has you covered there also. Starting at an affordable price of only $34,100, there is an option for everybody. Don’t put off investing in your future for one more min, and head on down to Cantin Chevrolet located in Laconia, New Hampshire for all your HD needs.
