2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD's chromed-out High Country trim revealed

The grille's still huge, and now covered in even more chrome.

We're still not totally sold on the new truck's imposing front end.

If you weren't a fan of the massive grille on the new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD, well, perhaps a generous helping of chrome will change your mind? On Thursday, Chevrolet released photos of the Silverado HD's top-end High Country trim level, which will be one of five different trims in which the heavy-duty truck will be offered.

Compared to the Z71-badged version we saw earlier this week, the High Country has a new grille treatment with horizontal chrome slats, as well as a Chevrolet bowtie logo across the center grille bar, rather than the block "Chevrolet" lettering of the Z71 truck. Also evident is the High Country's body-colored lower bumper with a chrome insert, plus chrome trim for the mirrors, door handles and window surrounds. Running boards and larger polished-chrome wheels round out the differences.

According to Chevrolet, even heavy-duty truck buyers want a lot of visual distinction between the SIlverado HD's various trims: "Truck customers are very clear: They want the perfect truck for them and not a 'one size fits most' truck compromised for the masses," Mike Simcoe, General Motors vice president for global design, said in a statement.

Big "High Country" badge means no mistaking which of the five trim levels this is.


The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD won't be fully revealed until February 2019, likely at the truck-centric Chicago Auto Show, so we're still waiting on specific details about powertrains, payload details and towing ratings. Chevy has said so far that the new truck offers more rear-seat legroom, a higher seating position and two different engine and transmission options.

Of course, the current HD truck is supremely capable. The 2019 truck offers up to 910 pound-feet of torque from its Duramax diesel 6.6-liter V8 engine, while a 3500 HD will tow 14,200 pounds with its gas V8 and 23,100 pounds with the diesel.
