Vehicle Profile: 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD
With the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD, you don’t have to choose between upscale comfort and unbridled power. This heavy-duty truck has what it takes to haul 18,500 pounds, keep you comfortable with heated and ventilated seats and safeguard you with state-of-the-art driver-assist technology. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll find on the rugged 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD.
The strength you need to get the job done right
The 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD offers two beastly engine options. It comes standard with the 6.6-liter V8 gasoline mill. However, if you’re looking for even more power, you can opt for the 6.6-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel V8. Both come paired to the smooth-shifting Allison® 10-speed Automatic Transmission. The gasoline powertrain can put out 401 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque, while the diesel dynamo can deliver 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it’s got more than enough muscle to haul everything you need — when properly equipped, this monster can tow up to 18,500 pounds.
Everything about the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD is built for utility, but that doesn’t mean it sacrifices sharp design and handsome styling. Its bold Dual-Path Air Induction System helps to draw in cool air and maximize horsepower, while its new trailering mirrors improve your visibility while you tow. When you need to access to the best-in-class heavy-duty cargo bed, the convenient Side Bed Step gives it a leg up on the competition. You can also opt for the versatile GMC Multipro™ Tailgate, which boasts six different configurations. Use its versatile design to turn your tailgate into a bench or work surface, or simply to lengthen the truck bed.
While the Sierra 2500HD is a hardworking truck, you and your passengers will be able to kick back and relax in its spacious cabin. It’s got best-in-class crew cab front head- and legroom, along with a crystal-clear available Bose® Premium Sound System. For maximum luxury, choose the Denali model, which boasts heated and ventilated leather-appointed front seats, a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel and an available 15-inch Head-Up Display. The Sierra 2500HD also comes loaded with innovative driver-assist technologies, thanks to its suite of 15 cameras that let you see through the trailer that you’re towing. Just don’t let this truck’s opulence fool you — it has plenty of rugged, practical features alongside its premium amenities. For instance, its exclusive All-Weather Floor Liners help keep the cabin clean, while the rear seatback and available under-seat storage compartments let you hide your valuables from prying eyes.
