The all-new 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 will arrive with numerous upgrades and changes. However, the number of changes are still not enough to call it a redesign. Recently, Chevy redesigned its Silverado model. Sierra HD is similar to the Silverado HD in every possible category. Silverado’s new face will have a huge impact on the upcoming Sierra model.

We can expect new optional features and additional design changes. There will be three different cab sized and four different trim levels. Sierra 3500 still falls behind Silverado in terms of payload and towing capacity. However, the price is affordable for the segment.
