Chevy unveils redesigned 2020 Silverado HD

Eight months after teasing the new look, Chevrolet has unveiled its redesign of the Silverado HD.

“This is the all new Jeep Gladiator Rubicon,” Tim Kuniskis, head of Jeep, said when revealing one of four trim levels. “Whether buttoned up or opened up, what you have right here is the most capable midsize truck ever.”
