Heavy-duty GMCs arrive later this year
Chevrolet revealed the 2020 Silverado HD in December, and let’s just say not everyone was a fan of the new look, especially the gaping grille. Now, GMC has released a teaser for the new Sierra HD, and we’re not quite sure what to think.
From this teaser image, we know one thing’s for sure: It’s going to have a huge grille like its Chevrolet sibling. The truck pictured here is the Denali version, which explains why we’re seeing copious amounts of chrome. The headlights look sharp, but we’re not sure how they will look in conjunction with the element that separates them from the grille. We’ll reserve our final judgment until we see the truck in full.
Expect engine choices to mirror those on the new Silverado HD. GM hasn’t released full details, but we know it will receive a direct-injected engine. This unit, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, is rumored to be a Navistar-sourced 6.6-liter V-8 from MD Trucks. The other engine option will be a Duramax turbodiesel V-8 that delivers 910 lb-ft of torque. That engine will come paired to a 10-speed Allison automatic.
The 2020 GMC Sierra Denali HD will reach dealers in the second half of 2019. So we expect a full unveiling pretty soon.
