Also, compared to its 1500 sibling, the HD model is nearly entirely different, as the two trucks have only their roofs in common. There's also more legroom in crew cab models compared to the previous generation, as well as a taller, more comfortable seating position.

There's an all-new Chevrolet Silverado HD coming next year, and you'll be able to see it coming from a mile away.

"We set out to make a statement with the 2020 Silverado HD and wanted to visually capture the power and capability of the truck", Brian Izard, lead exterior designer for Silverado HD, said of the newest model. For instance, that its exterior shares only a roof panel with the 1500 version of the pickup.

Chevrolet will fully reveal the 2020 Silverado HD come February 2019. Chevy has also devised a modern take on the "stepside" pickup style by embedding what it dubs a "Bedstep" in front of the HD's rear wheels for improved access to the box when there's a trailer attached.

"We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers", Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer on Silverado HD, said of the new model. Standard will be an all-new gasoline V-8 with direct injection mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the optional powertrain will be the turbo-diesel Duramax V-8 engine mated to a new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission.

As a result there'll be "significant increases" in towing and payload capacities, Chevrolet says, along with new features designed specifically for heavy-duty truck users.

This hasn't stop Chevy to give truck lovers an early Christmas gift by releasing a few details and several photos that show the heavy hauler in its full glory.

Built at the Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Mich., the new Silverado HD's design has a bold, sculpted form that follows its enhanced heavy-duty function, differentiating it from the light-duty Silverado.
