Shortly after introducing its all-new 2019 Camaro lineup, Chevrolet announced that it would reveal the 2020 Silverado HD 18 months from now.
Included in the Tuesday, April 10 announcement was a teaser image of the next-generation Silverado HD truck that will debut in 2019 as a 2020 model. This announcement comes about three months after the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The automaker reports that the Silverado HD is designed for the needs of the heavy-duty truck driver, and that on-road prototype testing will start “in the near future.” The 2020 Silverados will be manufactured in Flint, Michigan and the first batch is expected to come off the assembly line during the third quarter of 2019.
Chevy says it will release additional product information in 2019, but that the 2020 Silverado will be “bolder” with noticeable “larger proportions.” The automaker revealed its 2019 Silverado in January at the Detroit auto show, which introduced the Duramax 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine for the truck.
The Silverado was the No. 2 top-selling vehicle in the U.S. in 2016. Sales for the popular pickup dropped 4.3 percent, but GM still moved 574,876 trucks. The automaker hopes to gain ground on the Ford F-Series, which saw 820,799 trucks sold in 2016.
