Following with other automakers, GMC has debuted their 2020 Sierra HD. The Sierra HD definitely went more conservative compared with their Chevy Silverado sibling. Using the 1500 model with a facelift, the Sierra has a redesigned front fascia. Comparatively, the Silverado grille seems almost excessive. The GMC has clean lines and a subtle presence.
The 6.6-liter turbocharged Duramax V8 produces 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with an Allison-branded heavy duty version of the GM 10-speed transmission. GMC has promised a gas option, but no information is available yet. The Sierra HD has standard steps on the bed side, a feature shared with the Silverado. For the Sierra HD only, a MultiPro tailgate with drop-out step is available. It’s standard on the mid-level SLT but an upgrade option on all trims. A trailer camera system with 15 possible viewpoints will be available. GM’s rear-view mirror screen will be standard.
For those interested in hitting the trails, the GMC Sierra HD will have an AT4 off-road trim package available. It’s styled with dark grilles and trim. The off-road package upgrades include skid plates, all-terrain tires, locking rear differential and recalibrated springs and shocks. There is no pricing on the GMC Sierra HD yet. Pricing and specifications will be available closer to the summer on-sale date.
