Chevrolet Silverado 2020
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: If you need to tow heavy things and $113,000-plus seems like a lot for a pick-up truck, even when it’s a premium offering, it’s sobering to consider that a local towing legend like the Land Cruiser 200 Series wagon in top-shelf Sahara trim costs $123,000. And the Toyota can’t match the Chevy’s 4.5-tonne tow rating, load volume or sheer in-ya-face presence. For the right buyer, who ‘just wants one’ in HSV speak, it will be money well spent.You can read the full review here.
This is what Mark Oastler liked most about this particular version of the Chevrolet SILVERADO: Fuel economy, 624Nm torque, Spacious rear seating
The Chevrolet SILVERADO 2020 comes in a Commercial and Ute and competes with similar models like the Ram 1500 in the Over $80k category category.
The 2020 Chevrolet SILVERADO carries a braked towing capacity of up to 5890 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Chevrolet Silverado 2020 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Chevrolet Silverado 2020 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Is the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2020 good for towing?
You raise an interesting point, Phil. A lot of people don’t understand that as you approach the towing limit of some vehicles, you also get very close to the legal Gross Combination Mass (GCM) which means you have virtually no payload left.
As for the torque of the 6.2-litre V8 engine, while it may not have quite the low-speed punch of a modern turbo-diesel, with 624Nm of torque, the engine is no lightweight, either. Frankly, it should do the job about as well as anything else out there. I’m not aware of a factory retune for the Silverado, but the engine is shared with plenty of GM and Holden product and there’s a whole industry in hotting those up. Surely somebody can offer you the tune-up you’re looking for. By the way, success on a boat ramp tends to be more about grip than torque.
