In the world of full-size Chevy pickups, the Silverado 2500HD represents a perfect “middle way” between the standard 1500 model and the beastly 3500HD. If you need really unbelievable towing power, then the 3500HD is a great choice, but otherwise, the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is the perfect option for a wide range of truck owners looking for some extra muscle in their full-size pickup. The standard Silverado 1500 received an updated in 2019, but the 2500HD had to wait until 2020 for its improvements, but it was well worth the wait.
One of the standout features in the all-new 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is the improved 6.6L V8 engine that offers greater performance than ever before. The Duramax V8 Turbo-Diesel is as impressive as ever, and offers a smoother and more sophisticated ride than ever before thanks to an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission. An advanced trailering system makes its debut on the 2020 model as well, which makes towing and getting some serious work done easier and safer than ever before.
The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD also features a larger crew cab than previous models, which gives you more space to stretch out or load up with gear. Chevy has also made the truck bed more accessible and easier to use with larger CornerSteps so you can get to what you need and keep working all day long. With five trims and two different engines to choose from, you can get exactly the truck you need, with plenty of available options to pick so you can make your truck truly your own.

There are two engines to choose from with the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, which gives you the option of either a standard gas engine or a diesel model. The standard 6.6L V8 direct injection gas engine offers up to 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a 6-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission and should be plenty of power for a wide range of uses. If you are particularly interested in getting the highest payload capacity possible, then this is the engine to choose.
There is also a 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 engine available, which provides the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with up to 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, this engine delivers greater horsepower and nearly double the torque of the standard gas one. It comes with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission that provides a smooth and incredible driving experience, with auto-grade braking that automatically downshifts when going downhill to help reduce wear on your brakes. If towing is your primary concern, then this is the engine to choose and offers the greatest towing capacity possible.
When looking at towing and payload capacities for the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, it is important to note that the maximum values will depend on a wide range of factors. In particular, which engine you choose as well as the cab and box configuration you go with will all impact both towing and payload. It is impossible to get the maximum values for both of these specs, so you will need to decide on which is most important and focus on that. Be sure to check out the Safety Options for the Silverado 2500HD to learn about the upgraded trailering system.
For towing, the Silverado 2500HD has a minimum trailering capacity of 14,500 lbs if you go with any combination of engine and setup. If you choose a crew cab and the Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine, with the right towing package, then you can get up to 18,500 lbs of maximum towing. That is a pretty big difference, which is why you should go with the more powerful engine if serious towing is your biggest concern. While most configurations and setups can offer higher gooseneck or fifth-wheel towing capacity, often reaching the 18,500 lbs limit without the ideal setup, no configuration can go beyond 18,500 lbs even with a gooseneck.
In terms of payload, the engine and configuration make a big difference because these factors impact the overall weight of the truck itself. A 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with a crew cab, long bed, and the turbo-diesel engine, for example, can have a maximum payload of up to 3,536 lbs. The same setup with the gas engine instead, however, can have up to 3,800 lbs of maximum payload. When configured for optimal payload, which requires a regular cab and the gas engine, then you can get up to 3,979 lbs of payload. The same setup with the diesel engine tops out at up to 3,715 lbs of maximum payload.
The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD has some of the most impressive interior comfort and technology features that we have ever seen on a Chevrolet pickup. These will depend on which trim you go with, and with five different trim levels available, you can really customize your pickup to have exactly what you need. We will take a look at the starting trim and the highest one to see the full range of what is available.
If you choose the Work Truck (WT) trim of the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, then you get a 7-inch color infotainment display, with a 6-speaker audio system, and a manual tilt steering wheel. This trim level comes with vinyl seating, featuring 4-way manual adjustable driver and front passenger seats, along with a standard instrument cluster with a 3-inch monochromatic driver information screen. The WT trim comes with single-zone climate control, a manual day/night rearview mirror, and a USB port for compatible devices.
By comparison, if you go with the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD High Country, then you get an 8-inch infotainment display with navigation, a Bose 7-speaker premium sound system, and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel with controls on it. The High Country features heated, ventilated, leather-trimmed seating with 10-way power adjustable driver and front passenger seats. It features an 8-inch customizable driver information display, remote start, keyless open and start, dual-zone climate control, a wireless charging pad, and numerous USB ports and power outlets.
Much like with the interior features of the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, your safety features and options will depend mainly on which trim level you choose. To keep things simple, we will look at the starting options included on all models, as well as what you can get with the highest trim: the High Country.
Standard safety features on the Silverado 2500HD include StabiliTrak with electronic stability and traction control, six airbags, and daytime running lamps. A rear-vision camera is included on every model, along with hitch guidance, to help you align with a trailer to connect to your hitch. A Teen Driver system is included in every model, which is great for teaching a new driver safe habits.
If you look at safety features on the High Country, then you also get front and rear park assist, an HD rear vision camera, and hitch guidance with hitch view to make hooking up to a trailer even easier.

Available safety features on the High Country include a forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking, a following distance indicator, and a lane departure warning.
The Advanced Trailering System is an incredible feature that makes towing with the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD easier and safer than ever before. It includes support for up to 15 unique camera views so you can really see everything around you while towing, along with a bed view and HD Surround Vision to make maneuvering while towing as safe and easy as possible. The industry-first transparent trailer view uses a rear camera to create a rear view without your trailer in the shot, so you can see behind you more clearly than ever before.
