2020 Silverado HD High Country: Good Substitute for Luxury Cars

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD in McKinney, TX

For most of automotive history, the luxury sedan has been the pinnacle of the market. However, now it seems luxury pickup trucks are beginning to take its place. This has never been more evident than with the introduction of the all-new 2020 Silverado HD High Country.

This range-topping model could potentially be the first pickup in history to cross the $100,000 mark, says Sandor Piszar, Chevy truck marketing chief. While the starting price of the High Country model is just over $60,000, available packages can push it into the $90,000 range.*

The Silverado HD High Country is a truck built to impress. It comes standard with an impressive lineup of features like the 6.6-liter V8 engine with 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. It also comes standard with four-wheel drive and includes an automatic locking rear differential and an Autotrac® 2-speed transfer case.

Inside, however, is where the High Country really shines. The standard leather-appointed seats are soft and sophisticated. The dual-zone automatic climate control and heated seats in both the front and back will help keep everyone riding in comfort.

Technology features are abundant with a standard navigation system built into the 8-inch touch-screen system. You can also use the standard Advanced Trailering System to keep track of all of your trailers and make sure everything is connected securely.

Silverado HD: The Perfect Truck for Horse Farmers

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD in McKinney, TX

Here in Texas, we love our trucks, even if we don’t really need one. However, if you are a farmer, a truck is a necessity. If you’re a horse farmer and have been searching for the best truck for your intense work, we highly recommended the all-new Chevrolet Silverado HD.

A few years ago, Farm Journal Media surveyed farmers to find out what vehicle aspects were the most important when making their choices. The results came in with four-wheel drive, durability, engine size, and cab configuration as the top considerations.

Here is what the Silverado HD has to offer.

  • Four-wheel drive — all Silverado HD models are available with four-wheel drive.
  • Durability — the previous generation Silverado HD was recognized has having the best long-term quality in a J.D. Power & Associates survey. We expect this new generation model to be even better.
  • Engine size — the Silverado HD comes with two impressive engines. The standard engine is a 6.6-liter V8 with 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. There is also an available Duramax® 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 rated at 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.
  • Cab configuration — you will have plenty of interior space with the impressive Crew Cab configuration on the Silverado HD.

Try Out Some of These Chevy Silverado Camping Accessories

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in McKinney, TX

We can’t think of a better vehicle to take you to the great outdoors than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Along with simply having a convenient cargo bed, there are a lot of Chevy Silverado camping accessories you can get to elevate your next camping experience.

Bed Tents

Sleeping under the stars is a great experience, until you wake up with a sore back from sleeping on tree roots. A Silverado bed tent connects directly to the bed so you can sleep outdoors without having to worry about finding a flat place to stake your tent.

Bed Covers

Keeping your gear secure is critical while you are camping. You never know what animals might be attracted to your campsite and attempt to go through your things. With a bed cover, you can keep everything secure and out of reach.

Lighting

While you might head out of the city to experience a truly dark night, there might be times you need some light. Add some extra A-pillar lights or a light bar to shine a path through the darkness.

Trailering

Make sure your Silverado is equipped with all the equipment and tools you need to tow whatever you plan to take on your next camping outing.

2019 Silverado’s 0-to-60 Time Is, Well, Fast

When you think of pickup trucks, you likely envision massive vehicles capable of towing incredibly heavy items, like boats and trailers. What you might not think of is a super-fast vehicle that can launch to 60 miles per hour in the blink of an eye. That’s all changing with the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

In fact, Chevy just announced the 2019 Silverado’s 0-to-60 time, and it’s unbelievably fast. When equipped with the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can spring to 60 miles per hour from a full standstill in under seven seconds.

The 2.7-liter engine helps with speed in part due to the weight reduction. This engine is 380 pounds lighter than the 4.3-liter V6, the base engine of the 2019 Silverado. But don’t let its smaller size fool you: The 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine serves up 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.

The 2.7-liter four-cylinder is also impressive in that it is the first four-cylinder that Chevrolet has ever loaded into a Silverado. While it can’t match the pure power of the 6.2-liter V8 (420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque), it is still quite potent — and its quick acceleration is just a bonus.

Chevrolet Teases Next-Generation 2020 Silverado HD

Chevy Silverado HD

It’s no secret that Chevy has been updating its Silverado lineup and it looks like the American automaker isn’t going to be ignoring its HD lineup. The brand just released a teaser photo for the 2019 debut of the 2020 Silverado HD lineup.

“With a completely new, expanded range of Silverado models on the horizon, we expect to see even more truck buyers in Chevrolet showrooms,” said Alan Batey, global head of Chevrolet.

Currently, protype testing hasn’t begun just yet for the Silverado HD, but the model is expected to have a bolder design and larger proportions.

The reveal of the 2020 Silverado HD follows the debut of the 2019 Silverado 1500, which occurred in January. The American truck maker has also announced a new lineup of Silverado chassis-cab models, which includes the 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD.

Each of these recently introduced models have seen some significant changes. For instance, the Silverado 1500 has lost weight compared to the previous models and offers more customization options, so customers can find the pickup of their dreams.

While we don’t know much more about the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD lineup, we do know that it will be manufactured in Flint, Michigan. It’s expected to make its bow in showrooms across the country in fall of 2019.

Until then, stop by El Dorado Chevrolet to test drive the brand’s current Chevy Silverado HD models.
