2020 Silverado HD, Blazer to Headline General Motors Displays in Chicago
Every General Motors brand will have a big display, but the new Silverado HD is sure to be the hottest GM product.
When the 2019 Chicago Auto Show opens to the general public on Saturday, February 9, the Chevrolet brand is going to be the brightest star from General Motors. Chevrolet is the only brand from GM that has a press conference planned and with this week’s online introduction to the all-new 2020 Silverado HD, we know that the next generation Chevy heavy duty trucks will be the big news from The General.
2020 Silverado HD Leads Chevy
While the Chevrolet brand will surely have at least one example of every car, truck and SUV nameplate on sale today in their Chicago display, the new Silverado HD will be the featured vehicle. The company offered up all of the details on the new heavy duty pickups ahead of the show, but the Windy City will serve as the location for the formal public debut of the newest GM workhorses.
We can expect to see the Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD well-represented in both 2019 and 2020 form. This will give show-goers a chance to look at the trucks that are on sale today alongside the next generation of those same models, while giving Ram and Ford owners a good look at the current and future competition.
In addition to the Silverado HD, another model which should draw big crowds is the new Chevrolet Blazer. The 2019 Chicago show will mark the first time that the new SUV has been on display in McCormick Place and after seeing how popular it was in Detroit, we expect it to draw crowds in Chi-Town as well.
Of course, the Silverado 1500 will be on display, along with the Camaro, the Corvette, the Colorado and all of the other models currently on sale right now at your local Chevy dealership. Also, the Chevy Dealers area will have some cars decorated in the color of the Chicago Blackhawks, as they do just about every year.
Buick, Cadillac and GMC
The Buick, Cadillac and GMC brands will all have their own dedicated displays at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, but none of them have press conferences scheduled. This likely means that those brands won’t have any major announcements, but attendees can check out the full lineup from all three brands.
The hottest items from these brands are the Cadillac XT6 and the new GMC Sierra HD. The Sierra debuted late last month, after the Detroit Auto Show, while the Caddy debuted in Detroit. With these models being so new, fans of those brands will likely be looking to check them out in person, especially with the wave of new heavy duty trucks this year.
