Interested in taking a ride now? Head to Gainesville Buick GMC near Ocala and test drive the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 today to test out the uncompromised power for yourself.
Leave No Adventure or Job Unfinished
There's plenty of power waiting for you behind the wheel of the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 with a base 2.7L Turbo motor. You'll have 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft torque to help you tow, haul, and enjoy epic drives. Plus, with EPA-estimated 23-highway mpg, you'll cruise around without constant stops to refuel—an impressive feat for a truck this capable.
For more motor options, you can also opt for an available and powerful 6.2L V8 with 420 horsepower and a 3.0L Turbo Diesel packing 460 lb-ft torque and EPA-estimated 30 highway mpg for one of the most efficient pickups on the road. Throw some fun into the mix as well with the available X32 off-road packing, packing off-road suspension, skid plates, a heavy-duty air filter, and much more to prevent you from getting stuck while also maneuvering around boulders with ease.
When it's time to get to work, the available ProGrade™ Trailering System offers an in-vehicle trailering app where you can view your trailer statuses like tire pressure and temperature monitoring. Connect to the Phone Companion App and myGMC Mobile App, and you'll have all your critical information you need on the go—even when you're not near your pickup.
Time to haul? You've got plenty of room with the best-in-class cargo bed volume ranging from 62.9 to 71.1 cubic feet depending on the body type you choose. Even better, the available and innovative GMC MultiPro™ Tailgate offers full utility with a hinged system, allowing you to step in closer for easy loading, create a workbench, craft a step into your bed, and enjoy an available integrated speaker with Bluetooth® Capability. What more could you need your truck's bed to do for you?
By comparison, the 2020 RAM 1500 offers fun and capable rides with its base 3.6L V6 eTorque motor. And with 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft torque, you'll have no problems moving down highways or towing a heavy load—but note that it's also five horsepower and 79 less lb-ft torque than you'll find in the GMC pickup—which you'll feel every time your foot hits the accelerator—giving the 2020 Sierra 1500 an edge.
Also, the RAM 1500 packs an available multifunction tailgate with split swing-away doors. It's great for loading in your cargo with ease, however, you won't find near the utility the MultiPro Tailgate packs.
When looking at the GMC Sierra 1500 vs Toyota Tundra, the Toyota truck only offers a 5.7L Aluminum iForce V8. It's a powerful engine, but you won't have a diesel option for gaining the monstrous fuel economy the GMC Sierra 1500's Turbo Diesel unleashes. Also, the bed is spacious for hauling supplies; however, the GMC MultiPro Tailgate still takes a win for packing massive utility.
When it comes to the drive, it's hard to surpass the power, utility, and fun of the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 packs with its motors and MultiPro Tailgate.
A Rugged Ride on the Luxurious Side
There's never a shortage of comfort when you ride in the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500. With a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel on all models, you'll always pack an upscale look. Take a ride in the Denali Trim, and you'll have authentic open-pore ash wood trims, genuine aluminum touches, and a heated steering wheel and seats to ensure every ride blends fine looks with premium comfort.
If that's not enough comfort, the segment-exclusive Continuous Damping Ride Control helps sound-proof your interior so that excess highway noises aren't an issue. Plus, with class-leading front-seat legroom of 43.03 inches on Crew Cab models (43.4 inches in the rear), your passengers can always kick back and enjoy the ride.
Connecting to the ride is not only easy—it's fun too when you opt for the available 8-inch GMC infotainment display. With standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you'll sync with your smartphone for instant access to your texts, playlists, podcasts, and much more—all hands-free. There's also available advanced navigation to find your way around, and an available trailering app on your screen with step-by-step pre-departure checklists so that you're always prepared.
For more cool tech, the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 also adds in the segment-first head-up display. You'll view everything from your speed to directions without ever needing to take your eyes off the road—instead, it's a cool projection on your windshield, always a glance away.
When you ride in the 2020 RAM 1500, you'll also find luxury touches like available heated seats and leather accents. For tech, you can also connect to the available Uconnect® infotainment with available features like navigation. However, there's not an option for a head-up display for quick access to all your driving information. Also, 40.9 inches of legroom in the front and 35.6 inches of rear legroom make for a comfortable ride, but it's also 2.4-/ 7.8 inches of less legroom in each respective row compared to the GMC pickup—and tall passengers will feel the difference when they sit in the backseat.
While driving the 2020 Toyota Tundra, you'll also notice upscale features like an available (not standard) leather steering wheel and available wood-grain-style insert. You can even drive with an available 8-inch touchscreen to connect to your tech. However, heated seats are only available in the front seat. Also, with 42.5/ 42.3 inches of legroom in CrewMax models, the GMC Sierra 1500 once again packs more space for all your passengers inside.
For this round, a refined interior mixed with massive amounts of legroom and class-leading tech help the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 come out on top.
Keeping Capability Fun AND Safe
The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 isn't just about getting the job done—it's also good at keeping you safe in the process with its available driver-assist features like Following Distance Indicator let you know your gap time (or headway) to cars ahead in seconds. If you approach the car ahead (or pedestrian) too closely where a fender bender seems likely, Automatic emergency Braking kicks in to help you mitigate, if not avoid, an accident.
Found the perfect parallel parking spot in Jacksonville? Front and Rear Park Assist give you distance alerts as you inch into space—helping you avoid any unwanted dents. For more help, an available HD Rear Vision Camera and HD Surround Vision cameras show you all angles of your truck so that no obstacle, cart, bicycle, or car remains unseen. You can even use the available segment-first Rear Camera Mirror for a wide digital look of everything behind you.
When it's time to hit the highways, Lane Change Alert with Side Zone Alert lets you know when a car is cruising in your blind zone—helping you avoid merging lanes at the wrong time. For more help, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure warning help you stay in line with alerts anytime you accidentally leave your lane. You can even opt for gentle steering inputs to help you remain centered at all times.
To ensure your attention is always grabbed, Safety Alert Seat is available for most safety features in your truck. When warnings activate, you'll feel seat vibrations so that no alert goes ignored.
When comparing the GMC Sierra 1500 vs RAM 1500, the RAM pickup also aims to keep you safe with available driver-assists like Lane Keep Assist, ParkSense® Front and Rear-Assist with Stop, and a Surround View Camera. However, without seat vibrations for alerts or features like the Following Distance Indicator and Rear Camera Mirror, the 2020 GMC Sierra comes out on top with more safety.
For adding safety to your ride, the 2020 Toyota Tundra packs Toyota Safety Sense™P with features like Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams. But again, the segment-first Rear Camera mirror goes a long way when it comes to keeping safe when you're in reverse.
