Need a new full-sized truck and don’t know which one to get? Our team at Bob Weaver Auto, in Pottsville, PA have put together a list of information on the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500, to help you in your decision. Starting at a mid-range price-point of $37,800 and with the ability to seat up to six people, you will want to take a closer look at this impressive truck.
With the available 6.2L V8, the Sierra produces up to 420 horsepower and 460 lb. ft. torque and has the capability to tow up to 12,100 lbs., with a max payload of 2,240 lbs. With all that power, I am sure you are wondering how much gas it is going to take to get such performance. Fortunately, this year, GMC has created the Dynamic Fuel Management system which enables the engine to operate in 17 different patterns between 2 and 8 cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power delivery and efficiency.
The GMC Sierra 1500 is not without an immense aptitude for all things on pavement or off. Traction Select System enables the driver to choose between several different modes that have been customized for an array of varying weather conditions. These modes include; Tour, Sport, Terrain (available on certain 4WD models), Snow (2WD models only), Tow/Haul, and Off-Road. If you want even more control, don’t worry, the Sierra has your back. With the StabiliTrak technology, your truck will do what it can to help apply a specific amount of braking pressure or a reduction in engine power to correct the vehicle’s slide.
If you are looking to amp up your off-roading adventures even more, then the available X31 Off-Road Package is exactly what you have been looking for! It includes Off-Road Suspension, 2-Speed Transfer Case, Hill Descent Control, Integrated Dual Exhaust, Skid Plates, Heavy-Duty Air Filter, and of course the “X31” Hard Badge to prove you’re as tough as you look.
What is a truck without the ability to tow? The Sierra 1500 has an available feature accessible through its infotainment system called the ProGrade Trailering functions. With this unique suite of functions, you will be able to do an array of things including performing a trailer light test by yourself with the touch of a button. Have several trailers? Then utilize the ProGrade Trailer Profile Capability to easily save and track trailer mileage, or get reminders for each trailer’s maintenance, along with an array of other functional and time saving convenience features. Speaking of trailers, GMC also recognizes how important they are to Sierra owners and have developed a feature in the ProGrade Trailering functions that triggers the truck’s alarm, flashing exterior lights, and sounding the horn, if the trailer is unhitched while the truck is parked and locked.
When it comes to trailering cameras, GMC has really outdone themselves. With the class-leading available 15 different camera views, this truck is built to make towing a cinch! One of the most innovative camera functions available is the industry’s first “Transparent Trailer” function. This incredible view allows the driver to virtually “see through” the trailer as if it weren’t even there. This unique ability sets a whole new bar for how effortless towing can become with the right technology in the right truck.
Owning a large truck has never been easier than with the Sierra 1500. Featuring a large CornerStep in the rear bumper, more cargo volume than any other competitor, high-strength roll-formed steel used to create a more durable bed floor, 12 total cargo tie-downs (each corner being rated for up to 500 lbs.), 120V electrical bed outlet, interior USB charging ports, and the world’s first available Six-Function MultiPro™ Tailgate designed to improve loading, unloading, and accessing the cargo box. Let’s not forget how frustrating it can be to have to switch your high-beams on and off as you meet oncoming traffic. With the Sierra, this worry can live in the past. The available IntelliBeam Headlamps do all the legwork for you and automatically switch back and forth as needed.
Comfort / Tech
Get ready to actually start enjoying your drive with the class-leading max Crew Cab front head- and leg room. Along with comfort, the Sierra has been engineered to help keep road noises out with GMC’s sound-absorbing technology. Lastly, what is a good drive without a good jam session! With the available Bose® Premium Sound System, you will never run out of some head-bobbing rhythms. You won’t even have to worry about being in range of a radio station to enjoy some sweet music. Simply use the Sierra’s Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay™ compatibility along with the available Wireless Charging Pad and you won’t ever have to worry about dead zones or running out of battery on your phone again.
With the power, towing capacity, technological advancements, comfort and convenience that the GMC Sierra 1500 offers, there is truly not a better truck out there. So, what are you waiting for?
