GMC enhances Sierra 1500 for 2020
New cameras, conveniences and configurations for professional grade customers
GMC is taking premium to the next level with expanded availability for its carbon-fibre bed, 3.0-litre Duramax turbo-diesel and 10-speed automatic transmission, plus additional technology like Adaptive Cruise Control – Camera to elevate the ownership experience in the 2020 Sierra 1500.
The updates add to a robust portfolio of technologies that deliver an innovative and premium ownership experience.
The Sierra 1500’s updates include the following:
∙ Available Enhanced ProGrade Trailering features a segment-first transparent trailer view, originally introduced on the soon-to-launch 2020 Sierra HD, with a segment-leading 15 total available camera views.
∙ Available Adaptive Cruise Control – Camera.
∙ Elevation model now offered in Crew Cab configuration.
∙ First full model-year availability of the 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel and the CarbonPro Editions with the carbon fiber bed (both late 2019 model year additions).
∙ Available 3.0-litre Duramax turbo-diesel added to CarbonPro Edition propulsion options, previously offered only with 6.2-litre V8.
∙ 10-speed automatic transmission availability expands to 5.3-litre V8 models (SLT, AT4 and Denali models with 4WD).
∙ New trailer tow mirrors are available as a free-flow option.
∙ Eight-inch-diagonal infotainment system now capable of supporting SiriusXM.
The GMC Sierra already features an innovative suite of towing technologies that enable an exceptional light-duty towing experience.
The ProGrade Trailering System now features an available class-leading 15 unique camera views, including a segment-first transparent trailer view to help optimize the driver’s view around the truck and compatible trailers to provide added confidence when towing.
New for 2020, the available transparent trailer view uses the tailgate-mounted camera and an available accessory camera mounted on the rear of the trailer. The resulting display helps the driver to virtually see through the trailer4, benefiting drivers when navigating parking lots, merging into traffic and making tight turns.
New for 2020, the 10-speed automatic transmission is now offered with the 5.3-litre V-8 with Dynamic Fuel Management.
The 5.3-litre V8 and 10-speed automatic pairing will be standard on the Sierra Denali and Sierra AT4 and available on all four-wheel drive Sierras with the SLE trim level and above.
The 10-speed automatic has more gears for more ratios, giving Sierra refined performance and outstanding shift quality.
