A red 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD, which is a model you can find when you search "GMC dealer near me," is parked on a grass lined road near Corsicana, TX.

If you are a truck enthusiast like us, then you appreciate the ruggedness, strength, dependability, and convenience that comes with owning a pickup truck. Whether you use it for work or for play, a truck is going to fit your lifestyle like the proverbial hand in a glove. It gives you the power to tow a commercial trailer with your equipment if you are working, a boat or trailer if you are on vacation, or your belongings if you are moving your home. The truck’s bed gives you room for cargo, whatever that may be. And the truck’s reliability and power will get you through whatever kind of terrain central Texas may throw at you. Your truck has got you covered no matter what. But sometimes you need a little extra power, and that is where a heavy-duty truck like a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD comes in. It has more room for your passengers and cargo, and more power to tow your heaviest trailers. And if you are looking for a “GMC dealer near me” through your search engine of choice, then you have come to the right place.

A Powerful Engine for a Powerful Truck

This monster produces up to 445 horsepower and an astounding 910 lb-ft of torque on an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission. The Turbo Diesel is an upgrade on the standard Sierra 2500HD.

Space is the Place for Your Passengers and Cargo in the GMC Sierra 2500HD

You will be amazed by how much space this truck provides to you and your passengers. If you decide to go with the regular cab with long bed, you and your two fellow front seat passengers will enjoy 43.11 inches of headroom, 44.53 inches of legroom, 66.06 inches of shoulder room, and 60.90 inches of hip room. If you need space for more than three passengers, then the double cab and crew cab should easily accommodate you. Front seat passengers in both have 43.03 inches of headroom, 44.53 inches of legroom, 66.02 inches of shoulder room, and 61.18 inches of hip room. The difference is seen in the rear seat, where the three passengers in the double cab will have 39.88 inches of headroom, 35.24 inches of legroom, 64.88 inches of shoulder room, and 60.24 inches of hip room, while the three passengers in the crew cab get 39.88 inches of headroom, 43.40 inches of legroom, 65.30 inches of shoulder room, and 60.24 inches of hip room.

We’ve all heard the joke about everything being bigger in Texas, maybe one time too many times. But that cliché definitely applies with respect to the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD. The wheelbase on these heavy-duty trucks ranges from 141.6 inches in the regular cab, to 149.4 inches in the double cab with the standard bed, to 158.9 inches in the crew cab with the standard bed, to 162.5 inches in the double cab with the long bed, all the way up to 172 inches in the crew cab with the long bed. As a result, this truck will give you all the space you need for your biggest loads. That is why the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD has been rated best-in-class for heavy-duty cargo bed volume.

The standard bed has 69.8 cubic feet of space for cargo, while the long bed gives you 83.5 cubic feet of space. Depending on which configuration and engine you choose, you can carry anywhere from 3553 pounds of cargo with the crew cab standard bed with Duramax Turbo Diesel, all the way up to 3792 pounds of cargo with the double cab with long bed and the 6.6-liter V8 gas engine. Whatever you plan to carry in the bed of your truck, the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD is clearly the truck for you.

Your Best Bet for Trailering

When you think of heavy-duty trucks, one feature that jumps out at you is the ability to tow heavy trailers. The 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD is no exception. The standard configuration gives you the ability to tow up to 14,500 pounds. Need more power? Then upgrade to the Duramax Turbo Diesel, which will boost your trailering ability to a maximum of 18,500 pounds. You can also achieve this by adding a fifth-wheel/gooseneck instead, depending on the configuration you choose. Whether it’s a travel trailer or a tractor, your GMC Sierra 2500HD will give you the power to tow it without any hassles.

Standard Safety Features for You and Your Crew

Whether you are traveling with friends and family or your crew of workers, General Motors has packed so many standard safety features into the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD to protect all of you during your journey. These safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes, a rear vision camera, six airbags, a hitch guidance system, LED daytime running lamps, a StabiliTrak electronic control system with traction control to help your truck handle all road and weather conditions, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

In addition, if you have an underage driver, you can let him or her drive this heavy-duty truck with peace of mind, courtesy of the standard Teen Driver system. This allows you to enable certain safety features, set a maximum speed for the truck, and limit the volume on the stereo system. Best of all, the Teen Driver system acts as your own hall monitor, providing you with a full post-trip report on your young driver’s travels, so you can make sure that he or she is behaving themselves while driving your GMC Sierra 2500HD.

Premium Entertainment is Standard with the GMC Infotainment System

All 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD trucks feature the excellent GMC Infotainment system as standard. This comes with a color touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for your phones, a 6-speaker AM/FM stereo system, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto depending on your smartphone’s operating system, and a USB port. The regular cab has a two-speaker audio system since there is no rear row of seats. An infotainment system like this one is usually a premium in heavy-duty trucks from other automakers, but General Motors has made this a standard feature and is now setting the standard for combining the fun of entertainment with the benefits of necessary information.
