What's New for the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500?
The biggest headline for the 2020 Sierra 1500 is the addition of a new diesel engine to its menu of available powertrains. A 3.0-liter "Duramax" diesel straight-six engine is newly available, offering Colchester, VT drivers a ride that's efficient and powerful. It joins the already lengthy roster of available engines for this model, which also includes a V6 engine, a turbocharged four-cylinder option, and two fantastic V8 options for the upper trim levels.

2019 SIERRA 1500 DETAILS

NEW EXTERIOR DESIGN

NEW EXTERIOR DESIGN
The first thing longtime Sierra 1500 fans will notice about the 2019 model year’s design is the bolder front grille. But, stay a while and you'll notice several other elements. For example, the newly designed lighting scheme on the front and back, which features unique C-shaped headlights and taillights with LED light components.

Not quite as noticeable to the naked eye, but very noticeable the first time you fill up the gas tank, is the lighter overall weight of this truck. Using a combination of aluminum and steel in the construction, GMC has managed to shed more than 300 pounds off of the 2019 Sierra 1500 from last year's model. Combine that new, lighter design, with several new and updated engine options, and you get a more fuel efficient pickup truck that is wallet-friendly and fun to drive when commuting throughout Shelburne, VT or beyond.

NEW TRIM LEVEL

NEW TRIM LEVEL

While many of the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 trim levels will look familiar, there's one new addition that's sure to get a lot of attention here in the Colchester, VT and Essex, VT areas, especially if you enjoy taking your truck though the back roads and off the beaten path.

The all-new, 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 trim is styled similarly to the rest of the redesigned Sierra pack, but it features several unique styling elements, including body-colored accents around the front grille, vertical tow hooks, and glossy black trim around the windows and on the mirror caps.

But, where the new AT4 trim level really shines is in performance. The suspension for this exciting truck has been raised by two inches, it has four-wheel drive standard, and comes with a slew of sought-after features that make off-roading in this truck not only easy, but fun. Look for a locking rear differential, special skid plates, hill-descent control, and much more.

GROUND-BREAKING NEW FEATURES

As if all of these amazing updates aren't enough to get you here to test drive the 2019 Sierra 1500, GMC has also gone and added a few all-new, state-of-the-art features to this versatile truck.

The biggest headline by far for the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is the addition of the MultiPro Tailgate. Standard with the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT, Sierra 1500 AT4, and the top trim Sierra 1500 Denali, this unique feature has never been seen before on any pickup truck. The multi-purpose tailgate is configurable in six different ways through a series of special buttons and levers. It makes the entire truck bed easier to use, easier to load and unload, and easier to climb into.

Additionally, there's a new cargo box designed and constructed with carbon fiber, as well as a new suite of advanced trailering technologies to be on the lookout for. These new trailer-specific features include a new lamp to illuminate the tow hitch area, new hitch guidance with hitch view that incorporates guidelines and a rearview camera, a trailer tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and a special theft alert system, among other features.
