The 2020 GMC Sierra HD debuted just last year, ushering the heavy-duty pickup offering into an all-new generation. In addition to a longer wheelbase, taller hood line, fresh styling, and greater towing capacity, the new Sierra HD is also replete with modern technology features, several of which are highlighted in the following 30-second video advertisement.
Among those features highlighted is the unique six-function MultiPro Tailgate, which can be configured to better the meet the needs of customers, be it through easier bed access, extra load length, or several other purposes.
There’s also an available Rear Camera Mirror, which makes hooking up a trailer a breeze. What’s more, the optional ProGrade Trailering System includes a variety of settings to make things even easier on the road, and includes an industry-first available Transparent Trailer View to see what’s directly behind whatever is hitched up.
Looking ahead, the GMC Sierra HD is offered with an Multicolor 15-inch Diagonal Head-Up Display that projects a plethora of information right onto the windscreen, providing easy viewing while on the move.
“Trailering is the most important consideration for Sierra Heavy Duty customers, and the new features and technologies in the 2020 Sierra HD make it easier than ever the hitch a trailer and tow it confidently,” said chief engineer for Heavy Duty Trucks, Jaclyn McQuaid, at the vehicle’s launch last year.
Under the hood, the latest GMC Sierra HD features the Duramax 6.6L turbodiesel L5P V8 engine, which is tuned to deliver an SAE-certified 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. The ‘eight connects to a new 10-speed Allison automatic transmission (which is actually not exactly an Allison) with close-ratio gearing that optimizes engine operation, no matter the load or terrain.
All told, the all-new GMC Sierra HD can tow more than 30,000 pounds.
