2020 Chevrolet Silverado Production at General Motors Flint Assembly (Michigan, USA)

03:29 Four Post Durability Testing
Flint — Chevrolet introduced its redesigned 2020 Heavy Duty pickups Tuesday at its truck assembly plant here, the third all-new Silverado in 18 months.

The new truck, built at the renovated Flint Assembly Plant, will require 1,000 new jobs at the plant, General Motors Co. President Mark Reuss said.

The new truck and jobs at Flint Assembly come as GM is laying off some 4,000 salaried workers in the next few weeks. Reuss acknowledged the somber circumstances before kicking off the presentation of the new Silverado Heavy Duty.

"As difficult as it’s been, these are the right decisions to make the company more competitive today and more successful in the future and long-term," Reuss said.

Chevy gave a sneak peek of the truck in December, debuting a new exterior design that differs from the light-duty Silverado that debuted at the Detroit auto show last year.

Powered by an all-new gas-powered V-8 engine paired with the 10-speed Allison transmission that debuted on the new heavy-duty GMC Sierra last month, the new Heavy Duty breaks away from the Camaro-inspired grille design on the 1500 with a bolder fascia and bigger headlights. Chevy said in December that the Heavy Duty trucks only share a roof with the light-duty 1500.
Every diesel-powered Chevy dually will now tow more than 30,000 pounds. And the gas-powered 2500 HD's max towing is 17,400 pounds, an 18 percent increase from the current model.

The 6.6-liter V-8 Duramax turbo-diesel engine will develop 445 horsepower and 910 pounds-feet of torque, falling short of the 1,000-pounds-feet of torque achieved by rival Ram's new heavy-duty truck.

Lead engineer Jaclyn McQuaid acknowledged the higher torque from competitors, but said that Chevrolet has strengthened the heavy-duty trucks' axles, locking rear-differential, prop shaft and u-joint to allow the truck to use all 910 pound-feet of torque in first gear.

Chevy's new behemoths will still benefit from the light-duty Silverado's new high-strength steel architecture with a new chassis that allows for three more inches of rear legroom.

And the HD's box, which already has corner steps for easier access, gets two more steps at the front of the box for easier, forward-box access.

      I just bought a beautiful 1999 Chevy Club cab 8 foot bed five speed stick Silverado,,. Original owner,,. He replaced it with a $63,000 Chevy truck,,. Boy is he going to regret that,,. !!! The 99 and a half through 2003 what was the best truck they ever built after the square body,,. Everyone was hire tech ,,higher breakdowns,, higher repair cost,,. !!! Higher-priced junk,,,.

      I think I really like the new Godzilla engine 7.2 liter 445 cubic inch,, big block,,. LS engine without the bow tie,,. !!! In other words it's a Ford,,. And even Ford can't build a truck that ugly,,,. !!! GM is screwed,, Ford will out sell them outperform them and Outlast them,,. !!! Isuzu will probably end up with all of GM's manufacturing plant,,. ??? Dodge Chrysler Fiat will be stripped to bare Bones,, too. I don't know if Donald Trump saved GM and Ford or buried them,,. Without the regulations being removed neither one could stay in business with the combined fuel mileage across the board,,,. They have no cars getting 45 miles to the gallon,,,. !!!

      Dear Friends!!!!! This is a very important message. Anyone who buys a new car from GENERAL Motors the chance you threw your money into the trash is very large. In this company there is no customer service, the company's management does not care at all, if you have a problem or a malfunction, you can only pray to God there is a chance that the help will come faster. GM is a very dangerous company, be careful and keep your money safe.!!!👎👎👎👎👎😬👎😬👎👎
