The new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD just looks mean!

Recently HSV announced pricing on the Chevrolet Silverado slated for release Down Under later this year, with the possibility of us getting the upgraded looks of the 2019 year model. Just to tease us that much further, Chevrolet have just released the a teaser image and damn, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD just looks mean!

BIG. ANGRY. TRUCK!

It’s only just a single image at this stage, and very few other details (besides it will be released late 2019 in the US). It is, however, the next iteration of the (insert deep, guttural American drawl voice here) big Yank tank.

This will be the third design change in the past 18 months, joining, as we said earlier, the 2019 Silverado 1500 and 2019 Silverado 4500/5500/6500HD. It looks bigger, bolder, more aggressive than anything we’ve seen to date, with an oval shaped grille texture, and a bigger, angrier bonnet scoop and bulge.

Chevrolet have said in their press release that testing of the new prototypes will begin soon, to ensure that the new version stands up to the standard durability targets of the Chevy Truck.

“Chevrolet already fuels the most successful truck manufacturer in the industry,” said Alan Batey, global head of Chevrolet. “With a completely new, expanded range of Silverado models on the horizon, we expect to see even more truck buyers in Chevrolet (read: HSV) showrooms.”

So our thoughts are rather apparent, in that the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD just looks mean. With the looks, style, features like towing and capability, plus a rather aggressive pricing structure from HSV, when they’re released here in Australia, will they be enough to get you to part with your hard earned dollars?

  • Don’t spoil a good whinge with the facts Keith!
    Looks pretty ungly to me. A reflection of much that is wrong with this world. Big, inconsiderate, harmful, vulgar.

  • I don’t know where you would get $US30k from. They start at $US55k which is $AUD71k, then there is cost to import, cost to convert, on road costs, dealer’s margin etc. End result is a price that compares favourably with something like a Landcruiser 200.

  • Totally agree Nev ,its ok for me I can afford the new Hilux, Ranger, or Silverado but the people buying these cars when we sell them and they run out of warranty are our kids , have you seen some of the quotes to repair these newer cars these days out of warranty 6,8,10,12 THOUSAND dollars not uncommon when they suck in some water from bad fuel or the electronic gearbox goes , very little is self repairable , so our kids paying of their $25,000.00 4×4 ute are left with it sitting in the back yard unable to pay to have it repaired ,that’s my thoughts on the technological marvels we see lined up in the car yards these days .

  • KAi spot on, remember the no frills Suzuki LJ50 – came with nothing extra sold by the thousands. Not everyone wants all the jazzed up junk fitted to cars nowadays. Power steering cruise control limited slip diff will do me. Heated seats? what a lot of rot.

  • Hmm why does a US$ thirty grand ute cost AU $ A HUNDRED AND THIRTY grand here .
    Import your own via NZ and get a pressed STEEL firewall , not a cap dangerous fibreglass one on the HSV brand ……
