The all-new 2020 GMC Sierra HD is coming to the dealerships later this year. After latest spy photos it is clear the whole Sierra HD’s lineup will get extensive exterior upgrades. The most significant changes will happen up front and the famous Denali trim will be available once again. This pickup truck will arrive in three different configurations and it will offer the same number of trim levels as before.
While the exterior slightly departs from the exterior of the current Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, mechanically, those two models are similar. The 2020 Sierra HD offers two V8 engines, gasoline, and a diesel. The new transmission is in the offer as well and it will be optional.
2020 GMC Sierra HD Includes Bolder Exterior
The forthcoming 2020 GMC Sierra HD will look similar to the current Chevy Silverado 2500 pickup truck. However, most of the styling cues are borrowed from the Sierra 1500 model. That includes bolder exterior features such as bumpers and the front grille. 20-inch wheels are also a carryover, along with the running boards.
Both 2500HD and 3500HD models will now offer more aluminum materials so the pickup will be lighter than before. Aerodynamics are better now and this heavy-duty lineup will wear more chrome details. The 2020 Sierra HD offers a MultiPro tailgate and CarbonPro box features. LED headlights are in the offer as well. Newest spy shots are showing new fog lights.
2020 GMC Sierra HD Interior Design
Most of the interior details are not available yet. However, we don’t expect any significant changes to happen. The 2020 GMC Sierra HD will deploy almost the same interior design as the Sierra 1500 pickup. However, it will offer more cabin space, which includes better legroom. Both light-duty and heavy-duty models will deploy the same use of upscale materials and we can say the comfort is above average for the segment. Denali trim will be available and it will offer nothing but the luxury.
This special variant comes with standard leather seats and plenty of premium features and systems. New Sierra HD will arrive in three different configurations. Regular cab models are offering room for three persons and crew cab model for four or six passengers.
2020 GMC Sierra HD Powertrain Options
The upcoming 2020 GMC Sierra HD comes with two powertrain choices. It means both gasoline and diesel engines will be in the offer. Mechanically, the same engine lineup can be found under the hood of the current Chevy Silverado 2500HD. A 6.6-liter V8 Duramax is a diesel unit that can produce 465 horses and 910 lb-ft of torque.
It is an improvement for the 2020 model and diesel unit can tow almost 25,000 pounds. A 6-speed automatic transmission is available. On the other hand, a gasoline 6.0-liter V8 returns 300 horsepower and 333 lb-ft of torque. As the latest rumors are suggesting, gasoline variant will obtain all-new 10-speed automatic Hydra-Matic transmission.
2020 GMC Sierra HD Price and Release Date
The price of the 2020 GMC Sierra HD will be slightly increased. This heavy-duty pickup will cost around $35,000 and upper trims will cost up to $50,000. Sierra HD Denali is priced at $60,000. The release date is not official yet but it will certainly happen later in 2019.
