"We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers", Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer on Silverado HD, said of the new model.
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.
GM's focus on understanding truck customers has helped build the most successful truck franchise in the industry over the last four years.
The truck's exterior is said to be inspired by heavy machinery and aims to be visually distinct from the Silverado 1500.

Interior shots were not provided as of its release. Though, it does get the same architectural changes as the Silverado 1500 which, apparently, means three more inches of legroom, and a more comfortable seating position.
Under the hood will be a choice of two new powertrains, according to Chevrolet. Its massive grille, bisected by some of the largest branding this side of a Dreamliner, feeds one of two new engines. Chevy is not yet stating its displacement or output figures, but it is highly likely to be more powerful than the 6.0-liter Vortec V8 which puts out 360 PS with 515 Nm of torque. Look for the heavy-duty versions of the GMC Sierra to be revealed soon as well, with numerous same cosmetic and mechanical upgrades as these Chevrolets. That's thanks to confidence-boosting driver aids when trailering, as well as significant increases in towing and payload capabilities.
Hot on the heels of Chevrolet's completely redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500 pickup truck, the automaker has unveiled the next biggest model in its full-size lineup.
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. It is set to go on sale in mid-2019.
