GMC’s Top Trucks and SUVs for 2020

SUVs and pickup trucks are some of the biggest, toughest vehicles on the road. While plenty of people choose these types of vehicles because they want comfort, space, and capability, even more choose them because they’re so hardworking. And if you’re searching for a tough vehicle that can handle it all, you need to check out GMC’s lineup of trucks and SUVs.

GMC is one of America’s automakers. And for many years, it’s been a favorite for those in need of trucks that can haul and tow and SUVs that can handle both commuting and off-roading.

But of course, some of GMC’s vehicles are even better than the rest. Here are the top trucks and SUVs you’ll want to consider from GMC’s 2020 vehicle lineup.

    The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 is a staple in the automaker’s lineup. It’s been a popular pickup for many years – and for the 2020 model year, the Sierra is relatively the same. GMC didn’t change much on the Sierra 1500, keeping the truck’s spacious seating and comfortable ride consistent.

    The 2020 Sierra 1500 saw just two significant changes, but they’re pretty unnoticeable.

    Additionally, the 2020 Sierra Heavy Duty has seen advances and updates in its capabilities. This bold, stylish truck is no slouch – especially when it comes to trailering.

    The GMC Canyon is a strong midsize truck that’s capable yet adaptable. It’s a great choice for drivers who want the functionality of a strong pickup and a vehicle that can perform around town. And that’s why GMC didn’t do much to the newest version of the Canyon.

    The bulk of the updates and changes for the 2020 Canyon involve the available packages and their features. GMC swapped some features and put them in different packages, so make sure to look at the list of available features when building your ideal Canyon truck. One of those cool new features is a remote-locking tailgate.

    Additionally, GMC removed a few options for the 2020 model year. The rear-wheel drive long-box model, all-wheel drive extended-cab All Terrain trim, and the leather All Terrain trim are no longer available.

  • MSRP: Starts at $28,400

    The 2020 GMC Terrain breathes new life into a longtime SUV. While past model years saw critics complain about limited features, few standard options, and no real perks for drivers, everything has changed. GMC listened to these complaints, and the 2020 Terrain is now packed with features just like its rivals.

    Some of the updates and newly included standard features on the Terrain are lane keeping assist, low-speed forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking. Additionally, drivers can choose to customize their SUV with even more upscale details and more safety – and entertainment – optional add-ons.

    Updates for 2020

    If you’ve been considering the GMC Acadia, there’s no better time to buy than this model year. For 2020, the Acadia underwent a total redesign, which means this SUV is new and better than ever. As a result of its makeover, the 2020 Acadia is now tougher and bolder than before. Its former 6-speed transmission has been updated to a 9-speed, and there’s a new optional turbocharged engine you can add on.

    Additionally, all levels of the Acadia have gotten significant upgrades in the interior. No matter the trim you choose, you’ll enjoy an updated navigation and entertainment system, which makes the ride better for drivers and passengers. There’s also a new trim to consider – the outdoor-oriented AT4. This trim can take a crossover SUV from basic to incredibly capable with additional features.

  • MSRP: Starts at $50,600

    Fuel Efficiency: 15 city, 22 highway

    Engine Options

    • 5.3L V8

    Updates for 2020

    If you’re looking for an SUV that combines the capability of a pickup truck with the comfort of a passenger car, the 2020 GMC Yukon could be your perfect fit. This sibling SUV of the Chevrolet Tahoe is built on a truck platform, which makes it heartier than most SUVs on the road. It’s large, powerful, and capable for all kinds of roads.

    And for the 2020 model year, the Yukon hasn’t seen many changes. It’s essentially unchanged, unless you opt for a higher trim level – and then you’ll see a few new features, particularly around driver assistance, added into the mix. The Yukon is still keeping its design and style from the 2015 model year, and the 2020 Yukon is just another addition to the SUV’s long legacy.
