The 2020 GMC Sierra offers an available 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
“Offered in SLE and higher trims, the diesel is smooth and refined, with quick acceleration,” according to U.S. News & World Report Jim Travers.
When properly equipped, the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 can tow a maximum weight of 9,000 pounds, but that’s not all that impressed the editors at U.S. News & World Report.
“With a comfortable ride, spacious seats, and easy-to-use tech features, the GMC Sierra is an appealing choice among pickups,” Travers notes.
Completely redesigned for 2020, the GMC Sierra 2500/3500HD models also impressed the editors with their outstanding capability and strength as well as the features that make wielding heavy loads a more approachable task.

One of those cameras even lets drivers see behind their trailer.”
