Stripes, Badging And Wheels Is All You Get

Silverado 1500 Rally Edition

Along with the debut of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss Midnight Edition at the 2019 State Fair of Texas came the arrival of the 2020 Silverado 1500 Rally Edition. And it gives something for the street truck enthusiast to get mildly excited about. ‘Mildly’ because, let’s face it, this is purely an appearance package here. But that’s enough more most people, and definitely enough of a consumer interest around a truck like this for Chevrolet to offer one.

The 2020 Silverado 1500 Rally Edition is an additional package offered on Custom and RST trim trucks. Perfect for street corner talking, the Rally Edition includes a body-colored grille, black Rally stripes on the hood and tailgate, plus black tailgate lettering, black badging, black Bowties, black exhaust tips and black assist steps.

2020 Silverado 1500 Rally Editions in Custom guise feature 20-inch black-painted wheels and a 2.7L Turbo 4-cylinder under the hood paired with an 8-speed gearbox. The RST Rally Edition offers even bigger 22-inch black-painted wheels and offers you the gamut of powertrain options: 2.7L Turbo plus an 8-speed, 5.3L V8 and the same 8-speed automatic or the flagship 6.2L V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission.

The new 2020 Silverado 1500 Rally Edition and the Silverado 1500 Midnight Edition will be available for order next month and should arrive at dealerships sometime before Thanksgiving.

Also new for the 2020 model year Silverado 1500 is the addition of the robust 6.2L L87 V8 engine to the Silverado Trail Boss and Silverado RST trim levels, while the 5.3L L84 V8 gets the 10-speed automatic transmission. Customers that opt for the bigger V8 can also select the Performance Upgrade Package, which adds a performance air intake and cat-back performance exhaust system, raising output to 435 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque.

Customers looking to tow their trinkets and toys around the town will be happy to hear that the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 RST with the 6.2L L87 V8 is SAE-rated to pull a class-leading 13,400 lbs.

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also introduces the 3.0L Duramax LM2 inline-six diesel engine with 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, with a fuel economy rating of up to 33 mpg on the highway and a 9,300 pounds tow rating. Pricing for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Duramax starts at $44,540.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R.
