So, as some of you may know, I placed an order for a new 2020 Silverado 2500HD High Country. The truck arrived last month, so I've had a little bit of time with it to share with you.
The ride is super. Very nimble truck and it absorbs bumps very well for a 2500. The steering is near effortless and the new 6.6 gas engine is quite strong and has a great sounds to it. The cameras on the truck have good pictures and the way it will switch from front to back camera depending on whether in reverse or drive at low speeds is a nice touch. The side step for the front of the bed is a great idea for this and most any other trucks produced today, since the bedsides are so tall.
I opted for the jet black/umber interior and that is a great combo. I've gotten many compliments on the color choice and on the interior as a whole. The upgrades are nice, the extra room in the rear as well as the console vents, electronic plug ins, and heated seats make for a great rear seating area. The front interior is laid out nicely, not as fancy or flashy as the Ram Limited, but it actually fits this truck perfectly, to me. The materials and fit and finish are very good also in my High Country. The new gen MyLink has worked well and is very responsive.
The LED headlights are very bright and the parking lights look nice at night and actually very good under full brightness when used as the DRLs. The truck doesn't have the power running boards that my F250 did, but the stock ones look good on this truck and don't make look like it's on the ground.
The fuel mileage seems pretty good, I've seen a 18.7 over 25 miles, 8.6 towing my 9500lb TT, and 11-12 in town. Only about 1300 miles on it so far, so don't have many examples of various types of driving and mileage.
Overall, I'm very happy with it and think that GM did a great job on these new HD trucks.
