General Motors debuted two light-duty models this year and the all-new Chevy Silverado 1500 came in front of the public eye first at the Detroit Auto Show while flashier, new-generation GMC Sierra 1500 waited for the debut a bit longer. Again, two models share a lot of the DNA but GMC distinguished the new model further with more aggressive and flashy styling and a few unique innovations. The half-ton Sierra returns the high-luxury Denali trim but also stands out with the carbon fiber cargo bed option and new versatile, MultiPro tailgate. The new off-road focused AT4 is also available.
The new-gen Sierra 1500 goes on sale with two V-8 engines initially while other options which should match the offerings of the twin Silverado 1500 will appear later. The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 will likely fill up the promised engine offer while there won’t be other major upgrades. After the revolutionary redesign, the model can’t offer much more and new color combinations and some reorganization in the equipment offer could change for the new model year.
