2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

In the GM family, the Silverado 2500HD is the volume heavy-duty truck, while the GMC Sierra 2500HD generally has more refined interiors and more innovative, and expensive, features.

With high-end LTZ and High Country trims in the Chevy, that line is blurring.

While Chevy has grown accustomed to trailing Ford in the truck wars, there is a new second-place contender in Ram.

Trailing the pack is the Nissan Titan XD, though it won’t be offered with a Cummins turbodiesel for the 2020 model year.

While towing and payload supremacy might make marketing fodder, they’re all capable of towing about 35,000 pounds and carry more than 7,000 pounds.

The more practical consideration might be space.

Silverado and GMC boxes are a bit wider, and the bed steps are the best on the market.

Ford makes trailering the easiest, followed closely by the Silverado and GMC.

The Ram rides the smoothest but the Silverado is pretty close behind.
