5 reasons to buy the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1. Just the right size

Need a truck that matches your team and trade? The 2020 Silverado 1500 has you covered. For landscaping duos and family-led outfits, the two-door Regular Cab model has seating for three and an eight-foot box bed, good for furniture orders or lumberyard collections. For crews that work together across multiple sites, the Double Cab and Crew Cab both seat up to six, and come with a standard six-foot-five-inch bed or a shorter five-foot-eight-inch bed. Both are capable of carrying your crew, plus equipment and materials.

2. Great engine options

The 2020 Silverado 1500 has six engine options, allowing you to prioritize different capabilities. If you're mindful of getting more miles from your tank, the available 3.0L turbodiesel engine with 2WD achieves an EPA-estimated 27 mpg combined.

For maximum payload capacity, the regular cab and eight-foot box for the 2020 Silverado 1500 is good for an estimated 2,250 lbs of payload. If you're towing machinery or if you want to hook up a family-size camper, choose a 2020 Silverado 1500 with the available 6.2L EcoTec V8 engine. When properly equipped, it can tow an estimated 13,400 lbs.

3. Be a trail boss

There's not much that beats the open road, but a forest trail will do it every time. The 2020 Silverado 1500 is built for off-roading, whether that means gentle campsite trails on the weekend or traversing rugged farmland for work. Pick the Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss or LT Trail Boss trim if you regularly take your truck off-road. Both are equipped as standard with four-wheel-drive, off-road suspension, and the Z71 Off-Road package, which includes skid plates and hill-descent control.

4. Smart technology

Don't be fooled by its rugged capability, the Silverado 1500 is a high-tech hub. If you want to send updates from the middle of a rural retreat, or your crew needs to call in technical data, standard Bluetooth® hands-free calling will keep everyone in the loop. Connect via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto integration to access your favorite podcasts and playlists on solo drives. If you share driving duties with your family Chevrolet's Teen Driver technology lets you set speed alerts and audio system volume limits.

5. High Country luxury

When hard work pays off, why not reward yourself with the tricked-out High Country trim? It's got the functionality you need and the deluxe features you deserve. Front and rear parking sensors mean downtown business meetings are a cinch. A power tailgate makes loading easier than ever before, while the addition of heated seating for the second row and a Bose® seven-speaker premium sound system means your crew will enjoy its benefits too.
