The new heavy-duty lineup is here. The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD High Country is reaching over $80k fully-equipped. Still, not all options are available already, but we don’t believe there will be any other more exclusive version available in the 2500HD squad. Well, the Silverado 3500HD will definitely cost more, especially when you add the dual rear wheel configuration.
The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD High Country will take on the Limited model of the Ford F-250. This is going to be a battle of power and luxury. Larger and more capable series 3 trucks are there to work. These will offer towing capacity over 30,000 lbs. So, the entry-level HD trucks are there for showing off. The High Country is coming out with numerous upgrades compared to the previous edition and the first impression is very positive.
Under the bonnet of this heavy-duty pickup will be the same engines as for the rest of the lineup. A gasoline option is a 6.6-liter V8 unit with direct injection and VVT. The configuration is good for 400 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. This drivetrain replaced an old 6.0-l unit and added 40 ponies. Towing capacity will be over 15,000 pounds, but the precise numbers are not available yet. A six-speed electronically-controlled transmission provides the smooth ride.
Another option is a Duramax turbodiesel engine. This is a more favorite unit since it raises the towing capacity over 20,000 pounds. The 6.6-liter mill is capable to produce more than 900 lb-ft. The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD High Country also gets 450 hp and special upgrades, such as exhaust brake or Allison 10-speed automatic gearbox.
What makes the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD High Country so special and expensive? Well, you will find numerous upgrades compared to the rest of the lineup. The new Silverado 2500 HD is available with WT, LT, and LTZ trims at the moment. High Country is topping the range with exclusive 20-inch wheels and other upgrades. For example, you will get a spray-on bedliner with trim level’s logo on it. The fresh six-way MultiPro tailgate is also there. Bumpers are in body color, and the rest of the body will show special chrome and bronze details. The Jet Black paintjob is available only for this version of the heavy-duty truck.
