No matter what trim level you choose, the 2020 Silverado HD increases towing capability compared to 2019. That greater towing capability is matched with Chevrolet’s new suite of customer-focused trailering technologies. The 2020 Silverado HD’s Advanced Trailering System is designed to make every aspect of towing easier and more convenient.
The truck offers up to 15 unique camera views, including HD Surround Vision, Bed View, an industry-first transparent trailer view, and an accessory camera. The transparent trailer view helps with visibility through the trailer as if the trailer was not there providing added confidence when towing.
The transparent trailer helps with navigating parking lots, merging into traffic or when making tight turns. It uses two cameras — one tailgate-mounted camera and an available accessory camera mounted on the rear of the trailer — to provide a wide display that helps the driver to virtually see through and alongside the trailer.
Another new feature is the new smart trailer integration, which is designed to work with ASA Electronics iN∙Command control systems. The system is being designed to integrate with and be accessed through the myChevrolet mobile app, either on compatible Android and iOS smartphones, or on the vehicle’s infotainment system via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The iNˑCommand control system allows owners to monitor and control a range of smart systems, such as water tank levels, HVAC controls and even power slide-outs, in recreational trailers equipped with the technology.
Other towing technologies include an in-vehicle Trailering App complete with trailer light test, trailer electrical diagnostics, trailer tire pressure and temperature monitoring, maintenance reminders and pre-departure checklist. Many of the in-vehicle Trailering App’s functions, including trailer profile creation and trailer light test, are also available with the myChevrolet mobile app, a feature that offers convenience when the owner is outside of the truck or trailer.
The 2020 Silverado HD goes on sale in mid-2019. There should be more details about the all-new 2020 Silverado HD — including images of Work Truck, Custom and LTZ trims— closer to launch. But you can see the top-of-the-line High Country trim at the Cleveland Auto Show today.
