Chevrolet has announced pricing for the 2020 Silverado HD, and despite offering greater capability and technology than the model it replaces, the heavy-duty pickup comes at a lower starting price.
Before we get into the numbers, let’s have a quick overview of the Silverado HD range. The heavy-duty truck is offered in strong 2500 or stronger 3500 guise, the latter of which is available as a dually. Trims, from entry-level to high-end, are Work Truck, Custom (exclusive to 2500), LT, LTZ, and High Country. All come standard with a 6.6-liter gasoline V-8 that makes 401 hp and 464 lb-ft backed by a six-speed transmission, but any can be had with a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V-8 producing 445 hp and a mighty 910 lb-ft of twist through a 10-speed transmission.
Now, about money: The 2020 Silverado HD 2500 will start at $35,695, $300 less than the previous equivalent model. That’s for the entry-level Work Truck trim in regular cab/long bed, with the LT of the same configuration starting at $39,595.
Double cab/standard bed configuration is available for Work Truck at $38,095, Custom at $40,595, LT at $41,595, and LTZ at $50,295. Adding the long bed increases those prices by $200.
Crew cab/standard bed starts with Work Truck at $39,895, Custom at $42,395, LT at $43,395, LTZ at $52,095, and High Country at $62,695. Again, the long bed brings a $200 premium.
