2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500: Spied While Towing

2020Silverado2500 HD WT.l01.KGP.ed copy

As predictable as the changing of the seasons, if we're getting a crop of new light-duty pickup trucks, you can bet updated versions of their heavy-duty counterparts are not far behind. With the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 and Ram 1500 hitting their stride, all three brands are putting the finishing touches on their significantly upgraded heavy-duty lineups, likely to go on sale as 2020 model-year pickups. After seeing a more function-first Silverado 2500 model near GM's proving grounds in Michigan, this is what our spy shooters sent us:

"We caught Chevy engineers testing prototypes of the Silverado 2500 Work Truck pickups, conducting towing tests and standard unladen tests on Michigan highways.

"The most recent prototypes have dropped a little bit of camouflage, revealing some lighting details on the towing mirrors consisting of twin LED strips. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500 WT is a stripped-down, budget-minded, functional pickup truck. The Silverado 2500 WT featured a grille design similar to the Silverado 1500 WT, with Chevrolet spelled out across the grille's crossbar in capital letters. The prototype also showed simple blacked-out trim and blacked-out front and rear bumpers. Simple steel wheels were also on display. Inside, expect to see an vinyl or cloth interior and a simple 7-inch touchscreen on the dash.

"The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 lineup has more trim levels than ever before, and we expect a similar lineup for the 2020 HDs. The stakes have never been higher in the Detroit Three truck wars, and the combatants are all readying new or updated pickups. In addition to GM's heavy-duty prototypes that are undergoing a rigorous testing regimen, Ram is readying extensively updated heavy-duty trucks that sources say will start production in late December with a January debut set for the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. To round things out, Ford is working on mid-cycle updates for its Super Duty trucks to counter competitors' updates."

Tell me genius. What is the payload and tow rating of that specific truck in that article was.

Get your mommy to read the article for you, then ask her.

U dont have proof 2.7L for the 100 time isnt faster. I've given articles that show it's not. Get a life and 1 name clown.

Posted by: TNTGMC | Oct 27, 2018 7:52:31 PM

Don't worry TNTGMC, it has never happened that the 2.7 has beaten a 6.2L chevy, at anything except for fuel better mileage, of course, that is expected from such a little engine. The jealousy from the Ford fan base is hilarious. They can't imagine acceleration from a pick-up truck that 6.2 GM provides.

So you have no clue as to what the payload and tow rating of that truck in the article is.

Thanks for admitting you’re clueless GMSRGREAT.

@ GMSRGREAT

I dont worry. I have a 6.2L and I destroy any junk ecobust!

As for just full of lies, that clown doesn't even drive a truck and he runs his mouth. He cant even tell the truth except that drives a car....pathetic. He needs to actually buy a truck then come in here and comment. Otherwise stick to the escort forum...aka 20 usernames.

Did your mommy tell you to say that?

It is so easy to shut down the Ford fan boys when they start spewing crap through their pie hole. Just simply paste a link to an actual fact and they run crying to their mommy.

I’m waiting for you to post the figures for that specific truck. Yet you keep replying, without those ratings.

That says you have no clue GMSRGREAT. If you had a clue, you would post those SPECIFIC ratings.

Come on GMSRGREAT.

Put your money where your mouth is and post the payload and max tow rating of that SPECIFIC truck.

Posting that article shut you down about how quick the 2.7 eco actual is. Loser!

I'm waiting for the actual test data supporting how quick the 2.7 eco is. Watch what I do here, O.k. fess up fake TNTGMC and Brawndo, just the truth.

I wasn’t the one talking about the 2.7EB. I’m the one talking about you not having a clue as to the payload and towing specs for that truck in the article.

You boneheaded GMSHILL

I wasn’t the one talking about the 2.7EB.

Did you put "just the truth" to bed and tuck him in all snuggly .

GMSRGEAT.

Why are you so reluctant to post the payload and towing specs for that truck?

What is your major malfunction?

This will prove GM has the fastest trucks.

Haha! You are playing devils advocate, all along using another's commenting name. You are such a hypocrite. You can't find the 2.7 data to support your earlier comments and you are too stupid to figure out what the towing and payload capacity of a 2014 6.2 Silverado crewcab short box 4x4 . I know what it is, now you go figure it out. Let us all know and I'll confirm it if you are correct.
PUTC is counting on you.

Why does this site continue to put up with the bull$h!t, cry babies article after article? What a shame to have to come here and skim the crazy comments just to get a real one. I believe most of the comments made are from teenager/twenty something spoiled kids from the comments I've read on a weekly basis.

It’s obvious you don’t know what the ratings are for that truck. Otherwise you would have posted them. I noticed you’ve moved the goalposts and have changed the criteria to “ a 2014 6.2 Silverado crewcab short box 4x4 “, and deflected from the truck in the article.

That’s more proof that you have not idea on that trucks ratings.

Just read the facts from a reliable source. The poor fords aren't the fastest.

Lies, lies and more lies if gm is not first it is lies.

The ecoboosts are coming the ecoboosts are coming. Run, run the ecoboosts are coming. Hide the women and children and me the ecoboosts are coming.

Still waiting on that data to support your 2.7 claims.

Thank God! For a second I thought we were being attacked by a swarm of electric typewriters. The clicking was too much! It was just a bunch of noising turbo Fords.

@ gms Just use google. It is all over the internet. Or use your head for something other than a hat rack. The 3.5 Ecoboost is as fast as the GM 6.2. The winner between the 3.5 and the 6.2 will be who ever gets the jump. The 2.7 out accelerates the 3.5 and wins every time. Now apply logic (can you do that) and you will know the 2.7 is faster. Is it not amazing where a little logic can get you. You will find successful people use logic.

gmsgreat read the two links on this page they prove we are right.

post a link bc full of lies has no proof of it. Its quite annoying when "it" can't show proof! Pathetic

Who are we?

7 seconds! Wow, those 2.7 eco are eco-slow.

See Silverado review below 5.7 seconds 0-60.

https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2016-gmc-sierra-1500-denali-62l-v-8-4x4-test-review

5.6 secs with 8/spd. Thats a lot faster than 7 secs by that little gerbil motor

@tntonline You have said you would never again post a comment to "just the truth". So now you just did. Are you a liar? Probably a rhetorical question.
As to following logic evidently you can not do that either.

@ tntOnline The 2.7 Ecoboost pisses you off so bad you give it a nickname "little gerbil motor". To make you hate the 2.7 that bad means you have seen the tail lights of to many of them. The first step in getting over this is admitting you have been out run.

Those GM Shills are complete idiots. You cherrypick like I’ve never seen before.

Why not use the same link to compare times? When one does, the 2.7 is quicker to 60mph than the 6.2L.


GM Shills are absolutely stupid

6.2 GM running 5.4 seconds 0-60 times. Please post test data from a creditable source where a 2.7 has been quicker.

@ gms You do not understand logic. You are the one who tried to say the Silverado was a model and sold more then Ford.
Are you like tntonline and listen to Michael Jackson.

Who are we?

Not sure why you "guy's" feel so threatened by an engine that is 2.29 times smaller than your 6.2 that you spew half truths. 7 seconds? Must have been a lot of wheel spin. Car and Driver tested a 2.7 4x4 @ 5.7 seconds 0-60. That is impressive for any truck. In the real world with real people not professionals, most of these trucks are basically a virtual tie. That is fact. Not sure why you guys get so upset about it.

https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2015-ford-f-150-27-ecoboost-4x4-test-review

TFL does more of a generic common man test when they do their 0-60 runs. Their results are below. A quicker truck doesn't necessarily mean a better truck so just relax. Drive what you like and be happy.

The fact you dismiss TFL as creditable tests shows how immature you are

PUTC has tested both engines. The results are less than favorable for the 2.7 eco lover. Check it out.

How is a 2.7 out running a 6.2 not favorable. That is a completely stupid statement.
Does your hate for Ford keep you from being able to think.

You can't handle the truth.

Yes, and I have some ocean front property for sale in Arizona.


That GMS guy is always good for a laugh!!

He gets a link showing his beloved 6.2L getting outperformed and chooses to "pretend" he didnt see it:

" https://www.tfltruck.com/2018/04/quickest-trucks-0-60-mph-in-america/ "

Now if this were a Heavy Duty discussion he would real quick to point out how credible these TFL performance tests are.....

Those Ford fan are always good for a laugh. I present two links with times that the 2.7 ecoslow can't match and the Ford universe explodes.............................BOOM!

A 2.7 against a 6.2. Or look at it as engine with over twice the displacement is slower. That has to be a major disappointment.
GM has built an Ecoboost like engine (2.7 turbo 4) with practice they will eventually come up with something competitive.

@ just alternate reality:

.......BOOM!....... That's the sound of the 6.2 hammer dropping on the little 2.7 eco turd.

So you actually don't have anything intelligent to say.

Posted by: Just the truth | Oct 29, 2018 11:03:38 AM

I adjust my commenting based on who i'm responding to.

"boom" is an intelligent comment for you.

I'm still waiting for "it" and its 20 usernames to respond with a link? "It" can't do it bc it doesn't even own a truck

As for half the displacement comment. U have 2 turbos compared to a N/A motor. How dense of a mind can u be to say its half the displacement. U obviously dont understand forced induction engines. Wow. U ford guys are real "tards".

Buy what u like or want. I dont deny that, but dont say a 2.7L is faster when u have no proof and run around in an escort. That's pathetic.

Wow. U ford guys are real "tards"

Posted by: TNTGMC | Oct 29, 2018 12:16:21 PM

just because one guys is rubbing you the wrong way doesn't mean they are all retards, what is it with you and putting all into 1 bag, i got friends who own GM's and there's no way i would go that far as calling them "tards" do you have no self respect or what is your problem
