It’s a very handsome design. This high-country model is the one that has a more traditional design since it uses the regular Chevy bowtie grille with thick chrome bars, Bronze accents between them, and the high-country branding under the right headlight. Surprisingly though the LTZ and every other trim below it now have the non-traditional grille which has Chevrolet spelled out across it.
As far as the headlights, both of the top two trends pretty much have the same design. With two separate housings and stacked LED headlights in the bottom and then finally along the bottom, both have LED fog lights housed inside either a chrome bumper on the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD LTZ, even a body-colored one on the hike up.
