The rollout of GMC’s next generation pickups continues with the addition of innovative features to the Sierra 1500 and mid-size Canyon as well as the launch of an all-new Sierra Heavy Duty.
The 2020 Sierra offers premium, segment-leading features with the addition of the 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine and the expansion of its carbon fiber bed and 10-speed automatic transmission. Sierra 2020 is the first full model year availability of the CarbonPro Edition with the carbon fiber bed, available on AT4 and Denali.
Other available tech additions include an upgraded ProGrade Trailering System that features a segment-leading 15 total available camera views, including a segment-first transparent trailer view (accessory equipment required). Adaptive Cruise Control – Camera is also added for 2020. The system features a single high-mounted camera behind the rearview mirror and can bring the Sierra to a complete stop.
All-New Sierra Heavy Duty
The all-new Sierra Heavy Duty — which commenced production earlier this summer — combines greater trailering capability with technologies designed to provide customers with added confidence while towing up to a class-leading 35,500 pounds on 3500 Regular Cab, long box, two-wheel-drive, DRW diesel models.
- Available Enhanced ProGrade Trailering system featuring class-leading available 15 camera views, including a segment-first transparent trailer view to virtually see through a trailer in tow (accessory equipment required). Also available on 2020 Sierra 1500.
- Available smart trailer integration, designed to integrate the iN∙Command Control System from ASA Electronics, provides the ability to monitor and control select functions of compatibly equipped trailers through the myGMC mobile app.
- Segment-first available 15-inch-diagonal head-up display offers useful trailering information, including vehicle speed, navigation information and an inclinometer display for the road grade.

The new Sierra Heavy Duty also marks the introduction of the first-ever Allison 10-speed automatic transmission mated to GM’s proven 6.6-liter Duramax turbo diesel.
For those looking to take refined capability off-road, GMC fortifies the new AT4 brand with an all-new Sierra AT4 Heavy Duty available for Crew Cab configurations as both a 2500 and 3500 single rear wheel offering. Additionally, the world’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate is available on all trims and standard on SLT, AT4 and Denali.
The 2020 GMC Canyon adds new features including a standard Tire Fill Alert that provides an audible, visual indication when tire pressure is added, as well as a new available remote locking tailgate.
The All Terrain trim expands package and feature availability by adding Driver Alert package, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. The addition of a Carbon Black Metallic exterior color choice rounds out Canyon’s model year updates.
