GMC's all-new 2020Sierra Heavy Duty will feature more room and amazing towing capabilities. “The all-new 2020 Sierra HD is the most capable heavy-duty truck that we’ve ever offered,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “For customers who demand a premium, innovative heavy-duty truck that supports their passions, the next-generation Sierra HD can pull like a pro.”

There is a lot of new and notable capabilities in the 2020 Sierra HD, so we are breaking down the key elements into bullet points.

Here are the 2020 Sierra HD general features. Trailering features come below:

A segment-exclusive available 15-inch-diagonal head-up display that offers useful trailering information, including vehicle speed, navigation information and an inclinometer display for the road grade.
An available segment-first Rear Camera Mirror.
MultiPro, the world’s first six-function tailgate, allows easier loading, unloading and bed access and is available on all trim levels.
A larger, commanding design that provides more room for cargo and occupants.
Best-in-class Crew Cab front headroom and legroom for the driver and other front-row occupants.
An all-new, segment-first, Allison 10-speed automatic transmission mated to the legendary 6.6L Duramax turbo diesel.

2020 Sierra HD Advantages Over Prior Model Include:

A longer wheelbase, a taller, more dominant hood line and taller overall height.
A larger grille and complementing functional hood scoop to feed an advanced cooling system for the Duramax turbo diesel. 
Class-leading heavy-duty cargo bed volume and corner tie-downs with a new, available 120-volt power outlet.
One-inch-lower bed lift-in height compared to the 2019 Sierra Heavy Duty, providing easier loading and fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailer hitching.
New, segment-exclusive cargo bed side steps on all box styles, located in front of the rear wheel openings, that complement integrated CornerSteps in the rear bumper to improve access to the cargo area.
World’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate available on all trim levels and standard on SLT, AT4 and Denali.

 

GMC’s Duramax turbo diesel and new 10-speed Allison automatic transmission pairing will offer superior towing confidence. GMC isn't providing exact specs today, but says that the 2020 Sierra HD will have capabilities well in excess of 30,000 pounds. This is the first HD segment 10-speed. The Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel engine develops an SAE-certified 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

An available smart trailer designed to integrate the iN∙Command control system from ASA Electronics provides the ability to monitor and control select functions of compatibly equipped trailers through the myGMC mobile app.

Auto Electric Park Brake to automatically apply the parking brake to help maintain truck position when hitching.
All-new Park Grade Hold Assist enhances hill hold by using braking effort at each wheel for an extended period of time.

Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control.
Trailer Sway Control.
Auto Grade Braking and Diesel Exhaust Braking.
Digital Variable Steering Assist that dynamically optimizes power steering according to driving scenarios, including trailering, and enables features like road pull compensation.

Wow they might as well not even produce the silverado hd imo. You have to be basically insane to take it over the gmc with how hideous the chevys front end looks.

I agree, for the first time ever I like GMC's front end way more than Chevy. They sure ruined that. I'm so glad I got mine in 2015.

Love my 2018, but can see why some might opt for the 2020.  GMC headed in the right direction!  Lots of smart and cool options. Good looking truck.

Funny, you think they will stop production because of you? 

Personally, I like the 1/2 GMC over the Chevy.  But on the HD class, the Chevy looks far better.  Looks like it means business.

Does that thing have it's own drone following it around to get all those camera angles?

I', sorry, but these are fuglier than sin! The new RAM trucks look a hell of a lot better and offer way more than anything GMC and Chevy are offering - and I currently own 2 Sierras.

After the issues with my 2016 gmc all terrain pickup I'll never buy another gmc or Chevy product.   Paint issues from the factory that they'r factory said wasn't from them and the dealership says isn't from them.   Then shocks going at 35000 miles along with airbag issues, backup sensor issues,  electric mirror issues and many more.   Your trucks are shit!!!

I have a '16 Denali dually. I hope they (2020) model fixes before its maiden release. The charging cell phone arm rest to actually be stronger and allow phones with cases that FIT the opening. Also those camper mirrors to be about 2 inches wider when open and have defrost. Fix camera issues that when reversing and pulling foward you have to re-enter your camera set up (yes I have the same cameras from Rostra). the overhead view is good for only 32 feet trailer and NO goose neck or 5ther!!! REALLY! Most serious dually users are over 32 feet. Why have all that GVWR if ur under 32 feet! Better get that distances expanded. Also that overhead view add a zoom while backing for the last 12 feet of the rear of the trailer for close objects... gas pumps, mail boxes... walls etc. 

I am on their email list and I await some of these answers. Also why no radio on the drop tail gate for the dually, we also do go events that could use it.

      I have a 2005 Sierra 1500 with a blown gt5/g80 and a 2004 Silverado 1500 parts truck with a gt4. Just wondering if everything would be the same if I were to swap them or not

      Just wanted to post on here, as I have seen no less than a thousand posts with questions about the 6L80E, specifically about the power threshold of a stock unit. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT Crew Cab Standard Bed stock 3.42 gears stock drive shaft stock 20" rims/tires 6.2L fully forged top/bottom end "Armageddon Twin Nagasaki's" (GT3582R's) e-boost 2 gauge Z06/LT4 fuel system 365lph in-tank Armageddon fuel pump QTP exhaust cut-outs and laid down 965rwhp/850 rwtq on a mustang dyno with 18psi on 116 race fuel (cut-outs open). I say all of this because the stock transmission detonated the 4-5-6 shaft (intermediate hub) near the splines. I took it to a "race shop" that said they would upgrade as much as they could; and was told at the time, there were limited aftermarket parts available for the 6L80E. This was mid 2018 with less than 10K miles on the truck and about 500 miles on the engine/turbo build and I discovered that was not entirely true. I drove the truck after their work,  with "spirited road driving" while the roads were wet no less. Long story short; they f'd me and I detonated the 4-5-6 stock intermediate shaft again within 100 miles and no traction at all. They apparently replaced all parts that were broken with stock parts! Moving on, I took my truck to a different shop and researched my a** off and found PATC Transmissions. I had a warm and fuzzy after speaking with them and ordered the Phoenix Level 4 Master Rebuild kit among a few other minor accoutrements and re-tuning of my TCM by Mike from Century Automotive. It is now APR 2019 and I am about 1 1/2 weeks away from having the my billet planetary gear mailed to me; for the new, more reputable shop in my area to install all of this PATC bada**ery. If anyone is truly interested, I will post new info once I put the new Phoenix Master Rebuild kit through the ringer with the full weight/horsepower/torque of my particular application...I hope this helps if there are some lost souls out there that may be headed down the same long. hard. road. of a "full send" like myself! Please post if you have questions/comments/concerns; as I have "been there done that and forgot the t-shirt" with the L86/6L80E so far.

      Got my SLT ceramic coated. The product is called QP-ON. Turned out pretty good! Debating getting 3m wrap on the front end. So expensive!

      Sold my 2015 Silverado a few weeks ago and bought a new GMC Sierra SLT with the z71 package and the 6.2L v8! 
      Had the camper shell moved over and sold the Silverado to my dad.
      It's been a great change so far. Nicer interior so my wife and daughter enjoy it. It's much quieter with the active noise cancellation, and the thing just SCOOTS! 

      My 5.3 that i had before was modded and would move pretty quick but this 6.2 just puts it TO SHAME.
      Installed an AFE Momentum GT Intake on it a few days ago and it's even better.
      Just cracked 1000 miles over the weekend and it's already better on gas mileage, ride quality and everything in between than the silverado was. 

      Very excited for the modifications to come. 
       
      Looking to add some fox coilovers to all 4 corners in the next week or so, which will level it out and lift the front end.
      Will then upgrade to 10 ply tires, probably a good bit taller than stock. (thinking about cooper at3 XLT's currently in probably 275/65R20 or 285/60R20)
      Then planning to put airbags on the back for towing. 

      Still undecided on exhaust setup, but will plan to do that and probably tune it in the future as well. 
       
      Anyways, heres a pic of the truck when i picked it up. i'll post some pics of the intake after installation as well.

      First post but following for a while now, I was wondering if anyone on her has done, or has seen a set of aftermarket Silverado headlights in a Sierra? I have a 2012 Sierra and I like the look of some of the Silverado headlights a lot better than the ones I have now, just want to change it up a bit and was wondering if anyone new if they we able to just be bolted in normally or if there was a conversion to make it possible?
