The 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD Opens the Tailgate With the Wave of a Key Fob

Over the years, GMC has continued to hone its reputation for producing one of the world's most reliable professional-grade, heavy duty pickups, and the GMC Sierra always has been among the automotive industry's most reliable work trucks.

This year, GMC has reached a new level of excellence with its 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD, a truck that offers top-of-the-line performance, enhanced towing capabilities, an adaptive transmission, more responsive brakes, advanced technology and a roomier, more user-friendly interior.

As if all that were not enough, the Sierra also is equipped with the world's first Six-Function GMC Multipro tailgate. We already know the Sierra is an ultimately dependable work truck. Now it's about to take its place as an excellent option for camping and tailgating at events including the upcoming Steeplechase of Charleston, a day of world-class horse racing, holiday shopping and delicious food provided by some of the Lowcountry's best restaurants - or maybe Clemson and South Carolina football games.

Or, of course, you can bring your own food and tailgate in your 2020 GMC Sierra, now available at Baker Buick GMC. The new Sierra takes outdoor cooking and eating to new heights with its Six-Function GMC Multipro tailgate. To begin with, it has the largest cargo box in its class, more tiedowns, bigger corner steps and better-than-ever lighting. But there's more:

  • The primary gate opens with the touch of a button or with the key fob.
  • The built-in load stop helps keep longer items secure in the bed of the truck.
  • The inner gate can be dropped down so you can get closer to the cargo box.
  • The gate converts to a step that can support 375 pounds.
  • The inner gate can be lowered to create a second tier of cargo with a load stop.
  • You can drop the load stop and provide an excellent work surface.

There's more to the 2020 GMC 2500HD, including three-quarter ton, one ton single rear wheel and one ton dual real wheel configurations. Sierra's available 6.6 liter Duramax turbo-diesel V8, with 445 horses and 910 pound-feet of torque, is both powerful and efficient. Meanwhile, the first Allison 10-speed automatic transmission available in a heavy duty pickup gives the engine the ability to operate at maximum efficiency, regardless of the load or the condition of the terrain.

In addition, the GMC Sierra 2500HD remains among the best heavy duty pickups in its class in the trailering and towing category, offering advanced features like the Prograde Trailering System to provide increased control of whatever you are pulling. All that power, however, doesn't compromise the comfort of your ride. Its independent front suspension gives you a smooth ride, whether or not you're trailering or towing. The GMC Sierra performs to perfection off the beaten path as well.

"GMC managed to take the most popular and dependable Sierra ever and make it even better," said AJ Geffert, General Manager of Baker Buick GMC. "The styling, ride quality and fit-and-finish of both the Sierra 1500 and 2500 are like night and day over the outgoing configuration."

The Sierra's designers didn't forget about the comfort of the driver and passengers. The 2020 model offers more headroom and legroom, and the crew cab models have almost 3 additional inches of rear-seat legroom, compared with previous models.

The 2020 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty has a personality of its own.
