GMC is preparing some big changes for its Sierra 2500 pickup truck. The testing prototype has been spotted earlier together with the Silverado sibling of course. Today, however, we’ve seen something more exclusive of the kind. The camouflaged pickup truck appears to be the 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD. The vehicle has a few give away cues, so we know this is the topping trim.
The prototype of the 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD tries to hide unique 20-inch wheels and larger and bolder chrome grille, as well as squared-off running boards. The tweaks are particularly reserved for the topper. We are pretty sure that there’s more chrome beneath the camouflage, but let’s wait until the pickup truck loses some camo.
The new-gen Sierra Denali 2500 HD will like the rest of GM family utilize plenty of aluminum and steel in order to cut some weight. This will have a positive effect on both rigidity and fuel economy. The truck has not been spied inside this time, but we are pretty sure that there will be a plethora of expensive extras, such as real wood, perhaps some chrome or aluminum, as well as high-quality leather.
The “vanilla” option of the heavy-duty pickup truck will likely rely on the Duramax 6.6-liter V8 diesel and the 6.0-liter gasoline V8. The oil-burner will most likely be updated in order to deliver more power and torque. Thus, the 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD will be able to improve its hauling capabilities. Both options should be paired with a standard six-speed automatic transmission made for heavy-duty. Still, the potential buyers will be able to get the optional Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission or perhaps even the new Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission.
The amazing pickup truck will not be done this year. Instead, you can expect it early next year, either at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show or a bit later in Chicago.
