As we stare down the end of 2019, we thought it would be a good time to take a closer look at what 2020 has to offer. The Chevy Silverado has always been a top contender on the truck stage. Chevrolet is boasting that Silverado is bigger, stronger, and lighter than previous generations. Silverado is also offering more choices in terms of available options and features.

With all of these available options, we thought it would be helpful to highlight what Silverado comes with in terms of standard features. Knowing what standards to expect, as you shop for your next truck, may help you determine if the 2020 Silverado is the truck for you.

It’s important to point out before we dive into the standard features that the 2020 Chevy Silverado has a host of configurations to consider. With eight trim levels, three bed lengths, and a variety of engine sizes, you’re sure to find the ideal full-size pickup for your needs. Maybe you’re in the market for a basic model regular cab truck with vinyl seats. The Silverado Work Truck has you covered.

You may instead be more interested in the LTZ or High Country Silverado, with a newly optional Performance package, to boost the V8 to 435 horses. Regardless of how you plan to use or work your truck, Chevy makes it easy to build the perfect combination of amenities to get the job done. Choose your powertrain. Add in your preference of appearance or performance packages, and you’re all set!

Standard safety for all Silverado trucks

Chevy takes safety seriously. Some of the newest safety features come optional, as part of the Safety Package II (for High Country and LTZ), like forward collision warning, lane-keeping assist, and HD surround vision. However, each Silverado comes equipped with a wide range of standard features, as well. All Silverado truck configurations come with dual-stage front airbags for both driver and passenger.

Also, seat-mounted side-impact airbags and head-curtain, side-impact airbags are also standard. New Silverado owners can also expect the Passenger Sensing System, StabiliTrak electronic stability, and rollover mitigation. Chevy has included trailer sway, and hill-start assist as well.

Standard technology and infotainment

When it comes to infotainment and in-cab tech, Silverado has some pretty convenient standard features. All Silverado pickups come with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, formerly known as the MyLink system. Expect a 7-inch touch screen standard, with the option to upgrade to 8-inch screens at the higher trim levels. Enjoy large and easy-to-operate buttons and menu selections. Navigation is quick, and each Silverado comes with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration capabilities.

Standard driver assistance

In every Silverado configuration and trim level, Chevy has included a few standard driver assistance features. A rearview camera comes standard, making it ideal for backing up to a hitch. The General Motors’ Teen Driver system is also standard on all Silverado models.

This unique feature allows you to set speed limits and control maximum audio volume for additional drivers. It also works as a monitor for driving performance. Drivers can also expect automatic headlights, power windows, and locks as standards on all Silverado trucks.

An engine size for everyone

The Silverado Work Truck comes standard with a V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. However, Chevy makes it easy to choose from a variety of engine sizes to best accommodate the work and lifestyle you have. You can opt for a turbocharged four-cylinder, an inline six-cylinder turbodiesel, a 5.3-liter V8, or 6.2-liter V8. Pull or haul as much, or as little as you like with this powertrain variety.

Again, finding the perfect Chevy Silverado for you is going to be based on preference and intended use. If you’re hauling people, bed loads, or trailers, you’re sure to find the perfect combination. All that said, knowing what Silverado has to offer as standard features on all varieties, should help you narrow down your search.
