2020 Chevrolet Silverado Production at General Motors Flint Assembly (Michigan, USA)
00:01 Silverado HD Manufacturing
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.

      Right on or at least past 4 years with no rust or paint flaking off ! The dealer ended up taking back the F250 back because it was not equipped like I was told and they fired the sales manager. Now I have a Platinum equipped like need for towing and it was $80,500.00 and about 5 or 6,000.00 off. I have worked my whole life to get a truck like this but still never thought I would pay that much for a truck but for the tow features I had to. I traded in my 2013 1500 LT with 70,000 miles and they gave me the NADA price 18,000.00. Now it is on their lot for a little over $23,000.00 and they did not paint where the rust is and that's 3 places on the roof and A pillars. Huge profit for the dealer over $5,000.00 I couldn't believe that who would pay that much. Probably a guy that paid $80,500.00 for a Platinum.
      The dealer did tell me how Ford increases the price on vehicles with nothing but maybe a change to the trim or unlock software features that all the trucks come with anyway ! The Platinum is below the Limited. The only difference is "Fluffy Leather" seats. Then as the assembly line becomes more automated the hard working guys who built those cars and trucks will lose their jobs after working for years for Ford. Their are hardly any defects on automobiles today and you can thank the guys who build them. Try to change your career at 45 or older and maintain a standard of living or pay for kids to college. Need to stop my little rant and sorry it was so long. The bottom line is nobody builds trucks better than Ford, Chevy or Dodge. This is the USA's domain.

      The bad thing about chevy is that cut alot of corners. You have to modify them with better parts. The g80 is a prime example. They use plastics parts in the fuckin transmission too. All engineered to break down at a certain time but hey most companies do that too

      My friend just bought 2018 3500 GMC Denali fully loaded and toled me his truck was in Diller 2 or 3 times.
      Car was broke down on the road.
      I have a lot of my friends who is doing transportation 48 states they have Dodge Rams only.
      But one of them had a good deal on GMC truck and he got it ...and gas what?
      Before it reached 50k he was in the shop more than 50 times and one of the problems was transmission needed to be replaced.
      So thin 7 time's before buying it they told me.

      I know someone that is a mechanic at a chevy dealership.
      He told me that when they get shipments of Silverados from Mexico , the ball joints are loose on every one of them and when they put them up on a lift , the front suspension falls down .
