The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado certainly caused a great deal of discussion and debate it debuted late last year. Much of it centered around the polarizing exterior styling which certainly proved to be a very divisive topic even among Chevrolet loyalists. This time around, Chevrolet has chosen to focus attention on the final pricing ladder for its revamped HD lineup, and buyers will be very pleased with what they see once they have a chance to run the numbers.

For starters, the 2020 Chevy HD lineup will actually be less expensive then its predecessors, with the base regular cab long bed HD Work Truck model starting at $35,695. Opting for the beefier 3500 model causes the price to creep up slightly to $36,895. Both of these figures are less than similarly equipped versions of the outgoing trucks, which had price tags of $39,095 and $42,190 respectively. This value focused salvo is enhanced even further by the fact that the new models are more powerful than their predecessors. All Silverado HD models feature an updated version of the familiar 6.0 liter pushrod V8 which makes a beefier 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. This is a modest boost over the 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque that defined the old model. The optional 6.6 liter Duramax V8 remains unchanged though, and will still be a viable option for towing with the 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque that it brings to the festivities.

As expected, the enhanced muscle coincides with upgraded towing capacity with the 2500 adding 500 pounds of capacity for a revised total of 18,600 pounds. Meanwhile, the 3500’s rating shoots up from 23,100 lbs to a whopping 35,500 pounds when saddled with a fifth wheel type trailer. With GM in a escalating battle with both Ram and Ford over this key figure, look for the Silverado’s capabilities to allow it to swing closer to its domestic rivals, while also making up for losing the torque battle slightly to certain Ram HDs equipped with the Cummins H.O. inline diesel and its insane 1,000 lb ft of torque.

While this revised pricing allows the 2020 Silverado HD to be a far better deal than it was before, the revamped Chevy is still not the cheapest heavy duty truck on the market. That distinction goes to the Ford F-250 Super Duty which can be had for as little as $34,745. As for the Ram 2500 HD, it is still the most expensive of the trio with base models starting at $35,090. With the heavy duty pickup wars rapidly ramping up, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will have a lot on its plate when it eventually makes its way to dealer lots, but it should still be able to be a key player for the bowtie brand’s broader goal of being top dog in the heavy duty pickup truck segment. In the meantime, we have added a handy pricing tree for all the models in the Silverado HD family which can be seen below.
