If you thought the 2019 Chevy Silverado looked radical, just take a look at its just-unveiled Heavy Duty brother, the 2020 Silverado HD. The grille looks like it's the size of a sidewalk heating grate (though more attractive, of course). The full-sized pickup doesn't just get a totally different fascia, the whole truck looks different. This is the first time we've seen this much styling differences between the two trucks.
