Ways the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Turbo-Diesel Engine Is a Beast

GMC recently announced that the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 would include a brand-new powertrain configuration: a 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine. This new motor is fuel-efficient, ready for off-road adventures, and extremely capable.

Fuel Efficiency: One of the most surprising benefits of diesel engines is increased fuel efficiency, and the new Turbo-Diesel engine on the Sierra 1500 is proof. Thanks to the new engine, a high compression ratio, a variable geometry turbocharger, and Active Thermal Management technologies, the 2020 Sierra 1500 gets up to 30 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.*

Ready for Off-Roading: One of the best parts of truck ownership is the capability for off-road adventures. The Sierra’s all-new engine option delivers an impressive 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, which means you can enjoy plenty of power for navigating rocky terrain. The available Traction Select System can assist the new Duramax engine to provide peak off-road traction control.

Highly Capable: As with all variants of the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500, the 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel engine is built for power. The engine has the capability to tow up to 9,100 pounds and is rated to carry up to 1,830 pounds of payload.

If you tow frequently or needs to carry lots of equipment, you need a truck. If you have a busy family who likes the outdoors, you could also use a truck.

No matter the reason you want a truck, it is important that you choose the right truck for your needs. Here are a few pickup buying tips to get you started.

How Are You Going to Use the Truck?

If the truck is just going to be your family hauler, you probably won’t need the most powerful engine, largest truck bed, and most rugged features. However, you want to make sure you get a Crew Cab, so everyone has enough room.

If your truck will primarily be used for work, you want to make sure it has the right towing and handling capabilities.

What Options Do You Need?

An affordable truck can quickly become too expensive with the addition of attractive options and packages. While you might be tempted to add in all the bells and whistles, your checking account might not be too happy about that. Focus on the features you really need to make the truck work for you.
