It was built to take on the hardest jobs you can throw at it without sacrificing ride quality and interior comfort. With all of that, it is more spacious and comfortable than ever, significantly increasing passenger space and storage. Every inch matters in a half-ton truck’s bed; and Silverado’s new Durabed is longer, wider, and more functional than before. The Silverado bed also has innovative corner steps and side steps to easily access items in the deepest part of the bed near the cab. There is more leg room in crew cab models and its bed is the most spacious bed in its class. Silverado HD lets you tow the heavy loads with ease. It has a maximum towing capability of up to 18,510 lbs. The 2020 Silverado 2500HD is available in five main trim levels: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country.
