2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500: Spied

Silverado3500HDdualie.g01.KGP.ed II

For the last several years, each of the big pickup truck makers have been using the same cabins for their light-duty half-ton and heavy-duty three-quarter-ton and one-ton models. Of course, that allows them to spread costs over a wider lineup, but it also is a way to bring more technology and comfort features to the bigger and traditionally more spartan work-duty pickups.

So, as GM prepares to bring its all-new half-ton pickups — the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 — to market later this year, you can bet chassis engineers and designers are almost ready to show us the 2020 heavy-duty sequel. The automaker has been running heavily camouflaged test trucks in and around the GM Proving Grounds in Milford, Mich. Here's what our spy shooters just sent us.

"Prototypes for GM's next-generation HD pickups have begun testing, and we caught them, giving us our first look at the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 crew-cab dually and a standard-width HD crew cab.

"We expected GM's new HD trucks to hit the test circuit soon, with the debut of the Silverado 1500 out of the way, and here they are, right on cue. The prototypes caught here appear to be Silverado HD variants, judging by the horizontal nature of the placeholder LEDs visible through the front camouflage. We also see what looks like a massive grille — appearing far more prominent on this prototype when compared to the current Silverado 2500 and 3500.

"A deep dive into the specs of the recently unveiled 2019 Silverado 1500 revealed some of the tricks that are also likely destined for the HD truck. The camouflage hides any evidence of the Silverado 1500's innovative front-end aerodynamic air curtains, but that's not surprising since that feature made it all the way to its debut without being leaked. Expect the same stamping and packaging innovations that debuted on the 2019 models to translate to the HD models for increased bed space and cabin space. It's clear from these prototypes that GM's next-generation HD pickups will be massive beasts to match the Ford Super Duty."

Here comes more aluminum body panels.

Ill bet just about anything it FINALLY has a DEF tank that doesn't say hello to everyone walking up to the truck, or drag the ground and a DEF fill that's sitting right next to the fuel inlet.

They can finally get caught up.

The Super Duty's gravity effects all. Ford's influence makes the whole industry better.

I hope it looks like a GM truck.

If the grill is really that big it will probably look awesome!

If that prototype catches fire and burns to the ground like Ford's did then I would agree.

I don't understand why any manufacturer wont include or have available a running board that extends almost all the way to the rear wheel. I noticed in one picture of the new Silverado it was shown with one that did...it would be a lot easier to reach over into the bed if it did. Was camping near a guy who had a Tundra who had an after market board that did and it was quite easy to just pop something into his bed with that board.

Where do I have seen those mirrors?......OF COURSE FORD F250. They are such copycats!!!!

But the cilverados are ugly as f HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Dig those mirrors.

@Budsy47
I could not agree more about the running boards going actually to the back wheel cut out. And also all the lack of ease of getting to the stuff in the beds. The trucks are tall, the beds are tall, and they are darn hard to get stuff in and out.
I guess the makers think everone is just getting in and out of the cabin and no one is working!

hahahah nice link gmbailout. that should keep him quiet for a while!

@ GM bailout

Really? Common man...u have a link to pictures on internet of vehicles on fire...u have no validity of why, what caused problems! The Super Duty had known issues. Come back with facts!

As with The longer running boards...i would love a pair for my 17 Sierra...would make life so much easier grabbing stuff from bed of truck or when uour washung and drying it off.

@ hello,

The guy whines and complains here http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2018/02/gmc-to-lift-curtain-on-2019-sierra-in-march.html about “ GM bashing “ and ruining threads. So what does he do? He’s the first that starts bashing ( of Ford ) in an article about 2020 HD Silverado.

@ GM Bailout and Frank

My point exactly...you can't even answer simple questions...let alone complex ones. Your responses speak volumes of your intellect.
only insults...what a shame.

What's interesting is how you were able to find that comment so easily. It's like you wrote it yourself. Lame man, you're just lame.

Now, start naming my aliases. I really would like to know who they are. Get ready, GO!

@ TNTGMC

You’ve been shown the answer to your question. In the fashion of a typical Ultra Leftists, you dismiss facts you dislike.

@ GMSRGREAT

Yes it was easy to find. It’s not my fault you’re a halfwit and have difficulty navigating a dimple website.

@ GM Bailout

You just showed images of all types of GM Suvs, trucks, on fire! I said you don't know why or how they started?? What don't you understand?? So you call me stupid bc I asked the question and you can't answer it?? I think one shall look into the mirror

The Super Duty had issues from Ford on brand new coming right from factory or with very little miles on them because of electrical shorts and faulty fuel tank straps!!

HERE IS FACTS!!! Know the difference

If you want more? I'll be glad to supply them!!

There is no reason for an insult, bc you can't answer the question!!

Frank I could care-less..who cares about him...no one does

TNTGMC telling someone to get on topic while in the “ Best Selling PICKUP TRUCKS: January 2018 comment section he argues Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes and the Ford GT.

Talk about a M O R O N.

Its front is way too square,,

Dilly Dilly

You’re answer it your self idiot.

Part 2

TNTGMC telling someone to get on topic while posting links to recalls for trucks that aren’t the topic of this article. And recalls that are close to 10yrs old now.

TNTGMC is definitely a M O R O N.

And the garbage motors fan GIRLY fell for it again what a loser and stupid he is HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. FORD IS THE BEST AND GARBAGE MOTORS IS THE WORST I BET RAM IS GONNA DO WAY BETTER THAN YOUR CHEVYOTA TUNDERADO HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Not I’m a fan of ether truck both are junk.

FORD BUILT TOUGH !!!!!

The F-150 matched with the Eco-Boost can match any towing or hauling any HD truck can do !

Well the comments section should be shut down . TNT seems to be the only sane poster here. Anyway the chingon comments are crazy, and Frank makes us Ford owners look stupid.

TNTGMC sane?

He tells to get on topic, yet rants about 10yrs old F 250 recalls in an article about 2020 Silverado HD.

That’s a sure sign of insanity

TNT- do not fall into the trap they set. You are doing the things that you complain about. Come on man, let it go.

-CT

@ GM bailout

When I talked about those cars...others where talking about them??

I asked you a question b/c it was brought up about fires??

Man you are obviously very confused. Done talking about this b/c you are the one who doesn't understand.

@ CT

I appreciate it...its just hard when others start a conversation they know nothing about or can't back it up!!

Anyways, I do hope the new HD trucks do look a little different than the 1500's. That's a nice thing about Ford that I give them credit for, b/c their Super Duty and F-150's look different

Well the comments section should be shut down . TNT seems to be the only sane poster here. Anyway the chingon comments are crazy, and Frank makes us Ford owners look stupid.
