Detroit-based GMC has updated its entire 2020 truck and SUV lineup with new styling cues, smarter technologies, and standard safety features.
GMC’s small SUV Terrain is updated for 2020 with GMC Pro Safety on all trim levels. GMC Pro Safety is an expanded standard safety package that includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, lane keep assistance with lane departure warning, following distance indicator, front pedestrian braking, and IntelliBeam headlamps.
Denali models include a new Denali Premium Package that combines the advanced safety package and comfort package to include adaptive cruise control – camera, ventilated driver and front passenger seats, and heated rear seats, among other premium features. The 2020 Terrain Denali also is differentiated from other models by a premium suspension that includes new internal valves to deliver a more refined ride, in addition to unique spring isolators that already contribute to reduced road noise compared to other Terrains.
The Terrain Black Edition, which adds 19-inch glass-black wheels and darkened details, has been renamed the Terrain Elevation Edition. It will continue to be offered with summit white, graphite gray metallic or ebony twilight metallic paint.
The Acadia’s fresh look for 2020 was announced earlier this year and goes on sale later this summer. It features a new design, standard advanced safety equipment, and technology advancements. Exterior design updates include a new grille, new front and rear facias, standard LED lighting, and signature GMC C-shape lighting as well as interior refinements. Lane change alert with side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, and rear park assist now are standard on all trims.
GMC also is introducing the first-ever Acadia AT4 with more aggressive exterior styling, darkened finishes and a new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine standard on SLT models.
A new nine-speed automatic transmission now is standard for the 2.0-liter, 2.5-liter and 3.6-liter engines, and ride and handling are enhanced with all-new suspension refinements. Additionally, the 2020 Acadia is the latest GMC with electronic precision shift replacing the conventional shifter.
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 additions include an upgraded ProGrade trailering system that features 15 available camera views, including a transparent trailer view (accessory equipment required). Adaptive cruise control – camera also is added for 2020. The system features a single high-mounted camera behind the rearview mirror and can bring the Sierra to a complete stop.
The all-new Sierra Heavy Duty — which started production earlier this summer — adds 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.
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 Canyon adds new features including a standard tire fill alert that provides an audible and visual indication when tire pressure is added, as well as a new available remote locking tailgate. The All Terrain trim package adds the driver alert package, forward collision alert and lane departure warning. The addition of carbon black metallic as an exterior color choice rounds out Canyon’s model year updates.
