Power and Performance

One of the first decisions you’ll need to make with your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 concerns its engine, as there are five to pick from. The base is a 4.3-liter V6 engine that produces 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. For the most muscle, you’ll want to go with the 6.2-liter V8 engine that offers 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with all engines, but an eight- or 10-speed automatic is available.

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 always has a smooth ride thanks to its excellent suspension system. It also handles very well for a large vehicle. And for its class, it gets outstanding gas mileage: 23 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Towing and Hauling

When it comes equipped with the Max Trailering package, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can tow up to 13,400 pounds, and you won’t find another full-size pickup that can match that number. It also has a maximum payload of 2,250 pounds. There are three bed sizes to select from: 5×10, 6×7, and 8×2. To make hauling, loading, and unloading easier, you can also get in-bed lighting, extra removable tie downs, and a power tailgate. A trailer camera that offers 15 viewing angles is also available.

Interior and Safety

The 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 has a spacious interior with room for up to six people. Four-way manually adjustable front seats and vinyl upholstery come standard. Extras include cloth or leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, and heated and ventilated front seats.

If you’re looking for a Chevy pickup with numerous tech features, you’ve found it. The 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 comes standard with an infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen, a USB port, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ integration, and Bluetooth® connectivity. You can also get two household style power outlets, satellite and HD radio, proximity keyless entry, navigation, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and four extra USB ports.

Chevy models are known for their safety features, and every 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 has a rearview camera, traction control, and the Teen Driver system, which allows owners to set restrictions on radio volume and speed limits. A surround-view camera system, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning are just a few of the available safety components.
