It appears like GMC will certainly be adding another variant to the lineup with a single cab 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty. The truck seems following the lavish path set by its little sister, the Denali 1500. Although there isn’t really much to see in the method of exterior trim items, our digital photographers did behold exactly what appeared to be the word “Denali” stitched on the truck’s leather headrests. Along with GMC’s recent high end march, it would certainly make sense for the brand to introduce a heavy duty vehicle for the wheel heeled hauler. Anticipated to make use of steel and also light weight aluminum construction, once more like the 1500, the Denali HD is expected to truck along thanks to a 6.0-liter V8 criterion. A 6.6-liter Duramax V8 is likewise anticipated to proceed as an option.
Redesign or Same Old Sierra?
Like the Sierra 1500, the brand-new 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty version looks to be more than just a Silverado with a brand-new face-lifting. Even through the camouflage, you could see it has a grille approximately the size of a regulation football area adorned in a sea of chrome. Both the front as well as rear fender have some considerable flares, but it’s difficult to tell if this is simply the covering. It’s challenging to tell if the vehicle has the brand-new MultiPro tailgate, yet anticipate that and the new CarbonPro carbon-fiber bed to bring their way over.
We have actually currently seen the dually variation of the Silverado. The Sierra 3500 should arrive alongside the various other HD variations. Anticipate a mix of aluminum and also steel bodywork, just like the light-duty versions. We expect a complete disclose at some point following year.
From exactly what we can see on this heavily-camouflaged model, the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty will certainly comply with the very same formula as the recently-revealed 2019 Sierra Denali 1500, with a substantial chrome grille, distinct wheels, as well as special interior functions and also tools. The tell-tale indication that we’re considering a Denali design is the stitched “Denali” inscription on the head rests.
Like the brand-new Sierra 1500, the 2020 GMC Sierra will certainly use a mixed-material building and construction including aluminum and steel. The CarbonPro box and MultiPro tailgate are also most likely to show up on the Heavy Duty 2500 and also 3500 versions.
The 6.6 L Duramax L5P diesel engine mated to the Allison 1000 Transmission is anticipated to carry over, yet something tells us that the base 6.0 L L96 Vortec V-8 gas engine (and its 6.0 L LC8 aeriform variant) will be changed by brand new devices.
