2020 GMC Sierra Denali Redesign

The upcoming 2020 GMC Sierra Denali will be no different than a new generation Sienna truck. What makes it different is that it rides on a new platform. This new platform is made of lots of aluminum and high-quality steel. As a result, it weighs less than its predecessor and, at the same time, look bigger. How much weight does the upcoming Sierra Denali lose? According to the latest reports, the new generation truck will lose 400 lbs, at the very least. Let’s get to the details of the exterior and interior now.

Exterior Changes

As we mentioned earlier, the New GMC Sierra Denali will be lighter and larger than its predecessors. To accommodate the size increase, the exterior will be changed. What can of changes it will come with?

As far as we know, the new truck will ride on new 20-inch wheels. The front end of the truck will be made of chrome, especially its grille. From the spy shots, it appears that the grille is a bit larger than the current models, but we can say for sure for now. It is, after all, not the final version. The body design is nice. The headlights are new and brighter. Overall, the redesign makes the truck look and feel more majestic and luxurious.

What we currently know about the upcoming Sierra Denali mainly came from spy photos of the test mule. While we expect some redesigns for the 2020 GMC Sierra Denali, we don’t expect it to veer off far from its predecessors in terms of design. Especially since the 2019 model came with a new, profound design. So, we expect it to be more or less similar to the 2019 model, albeit there are likely to be redesigns, updates, and upgrades here and there.

The 2019 model is taller than the previous ones, giving it a more commanding presence. This is emphasized further with a sharp, chrome grille with a precise dimensional pattern. The 2020 model, on the other hand, will emphasize even further. Especially not only it is tall, but it is also larger than the 2019 model. Even better, it is at least 400 lbs lighter as well.

All in all, the upcoming 2020 GMC Sierra Denali will come with a design that represents the essence of GMC. Simultaneously, the upcoming Sierra Denali will also show a new expression of GMC signature cues.

Interior Updates

Now, what about the interior? We don’t know yet. Spy photos can only capture the exterior of the upcoming truck. The test mule is covered even then, so what we know is very limited regarding the upcoming truck.

That being the case, we can use the current model, the Previous GMC Sierra Denali, as a base for our speculation. After all, a total redesign isn’t likely to happen. If there are changes, they will not be in a drastic way.

How will the interior look like, then? The Sierra Denali lineup is known to have a refined and sophisticated interior. It is the best in its class to provide a comfortable, driver-centered environment using high-quality materials. We can see this on the 2019 model and its predecessors, and we will likely see this on the 2020 model.

So, expect the upcoming truck to have a higher seating position, premium seating, aluminum décor with a dark finish, authentic wood trim, and roomy interior, both for passengers and items.

Engine Performance

Since the Sierra Denali lineup is known for its capabilities, be it on the highway or off-road terrain, we can expect that powerful engines will power it. What kind of engines will be used under the hood?

Under the hood, the 2020 GMC Sierra Denali will be powered by either gasoline or diesel engines. The gasoline engine is a 6.0L V8 engine, while the diesel engine is a 6.6L V8 Duramax engine.

There are also options for the transmission gearbox: a six-speed auto heavy-duty transmission, an Allison 1000 six-speed auto transmission, and Hydra-Matic 10-speed auto transmission. The former is the standard transmission gearbox, while the latter two are both optional.

Also, there is good news for those who want the diesel engine: you can expect the Duramax diesel engine to be improved to generate more horsepower. More horsepower means more hauling abilities.

Safety Features

In terms of safety, what the 2020 GMC Sierra Denali will have the standard safety features. That’s right; it will come with the safety features that today’s car is required to have. As such, we expect the new Sierra Denali to have safety features such as a collision detection system, parking lane, airbags, and more.
