Immediately apparent is a big, bold, chrome grille with the Chevrolet script appearing in a cutout relief that lets the mesh of the grille show through. The chrome center line of that grille cuts through what may be dual lighting elements, LEDs at the top and more traditional reflector units below. A seriously massive hood scoop sits atop a power bulge that may or may not be necessary to cover what’s likely an upgraded Duramax diesel engine, but either way, it’s an in-your-face design element with its chromed-out leading edge.
This early sneak peek gives us a look at the next-gen Silverado HD in Z71 trim, which means there may be more than one fascia planned. At least in this trim level, there doesn’t appear to be a golden Bowtie leading the way. Although we haven’t gotten a look at the rear, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Chevrolet name stamped into the tailgate, either.
Chevy says that on-road testing is about to commence for its next generation of HD pickups (which is kinda funny since we’ve already seen spy photos of the trucks out in the wild). Expect a whole heck of a lot more detail to filter out in the coming months, including engine specifications and the all-important tow and payload ratings. In the meantime, feel free to dissect the teaser image up above.
