The new generation of GMC Sierra is here! It’s got updated tech, a new interior layout, increased performance, and more towing capacity. The 2020 Sierra 2500 is shaping up to be one of the best trucks available in 2020.
Let’s dive in and see why this truck is a game-changer.
The 2020 Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty comes with a choice between two engines. There is the standard 6.6L naturally-aspirated V8 that puts out 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. We have a feeling, however, that many people will opt for the workhorse 6.6L Duramax V8 turbodiesel. This monster produces 445 horsepower and a ridiculous 910 lb-ft of torque. The diesel is paired with a silky smooth 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Duramax Turbodiesel is rated to pull up to 18,500 lbs, letting you pull just about anything short of a semi-trailer. The Sierra also has a gooseneck/5th-wheel towing package for those who need it. We adored the 15 available cameras that help with towing. For instance, when you flip on your turn signal, the infotainment screen will show the rear-facing camera feed on that same side, so you can see the full length of whatever you’re pulling. These 15 cameras work together to create an “invisible trailer” feature which lets you see what’s behind as if you weren’t pulling anything. This is all controlled through the integrated trailering app provided in every Sierra 2500HD model.
The Sierra 2500HD has many options when it comes to cabins, boxes, and trims. Configurations include regular cab/long bed, double cab/standard bed, double cab/long bed, crew cab/standard bed, and crew cab/long bed. The regular cabin gets the Sierra and SLE trims. The double cab gets the Sierra, SLE, and SLT trims. The crew cab gets access to the Sierra, SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali trims, the latter two of which are only available on the 4x4 drivetrain configuration.
