Also, compared to its 1500 sibling, the HD model is nearly entirely different, as the two trucks have only their roofs in common. So if you're 6-foot-6 and need a new truck, look no further than the Silverado HD.

Chevrolet has pulled back what must have been a very, very big sheet on its 2020 Silverado 2500HD, with a new look created to better separate it from the "regular duty" Silverado 1500 launched earlier this year. According to the automaker, only the roof is common with the Silverado 1500.

Chevrolet just pulled the covers off of its 2020 Silverado HD, and the new truck boasts incredible power numbers, an all-new body and one scary-looking grill. Though, it does get the same architectural changes as the Silverado 1500 which, apparently, means three more inches of legroom, and a more comfortable seating position.

The truck's exterior is said to be inspired by heavy machinery and aims to be visually distinct from the Silverado 1500.

Billed by the company as their "most capable, most advanced Silverado Heavy Duty ever", the new Silverado HD serves as the company's third all-new pickup in 18 months and is tailor-made for grueling tasks and jobs.

Under the 2020 Silverado HD's hood is a choice of two new powertrains: an all-new gasoline engine with direct injection mated to a six-speed transmission, or the Duramax Turbo-Diesel V-8, which delivers 910 lb-ft of torque through an all-new, Allison 10-speed transmission. No interior photos have been released, but it should be close in appearance to that of the half-ton truck.

The 2020 Silverado HD goes on sale in mid-2019, stay tuned for more details about the all-new 2020 Silverado HD.

Chevrolet is also promising new "trailering technology", better towing and payload limits and a handy "integrated Bedstep" which is supposed to make load bed access easier if you have a fifth-wheel trailer hooked up to the back.
