2020 Chevy Silverado High Country Review: An $80K Truck That Still Manages to be a Good Deal

The Chevy Silverado High Country won’t come cheap, but when take the right perspective, this truck actually feels like a bargain.

That’s because, with a starting price at just above $66,000 in Canada, the Silverado High Country is the most affordable top-trim luxury truck from the Big Three, undercutting the Ram 1500 Limited by just under $10,000, while the Ford F-150 Limited starts at over $80,000 in Canada.

Granted, both the Ford and Ram come with more content right out of the box than the Silverado, but if buying a luxury pickup is your main goal, walking into the Chevy dealer could save you money.

Sitting inside the High Country might explain why the Silverado is cheaper, as it simply feels like it. Black plastic with bronze highlights doesn’t come off nearly as posh as Chevy was clearly hoping for, and the materials in this truck just don’t compare with those found in cross-town rivals Ram and Ford.

But if you can make it past the interior aesthetic, the Silverado offers some of the best technology in the segment along with the availability of one of the best diesel powertrains on the market right now. With the 3.0-liter Duramax diesel under the hood, the truck has loads of smooth torque delivered with minimal lag, and an impressive combined fuel economy rating of 27 mpg when the truck has just two-wheel drive.

The suite of cameras on the Silverado offers full views around the truck, helping to park and maneuver in tight spots.
