In one of the bigger unveil events of the year, General Motor’s GMC premium truck and SUV brand has just revealed its new 2020 GMC Sierra HD. The heavy-duty, full-size pickup is touted as “the crown jewel of the GMC lineup” and the model that most lives up to the brand’s “Professional Grade” motto, so it’s important that they get it right with this new generation.Let’s cut right to the most important detail you need to know about the 2020 GMC Sierra HD: when properly equipped, it has an estimated towing capacity in excess of 30,000 pounds. If you could find a trailer big enough to carry an F-250 Super Duty, a Nissan Titan XD and the previous generation Sierra HD, this new 2020 Sierra HD could tow ’em all. That’s like two African elephants (or 3,000 cats) worth of mass; we’re talking serious pulling power. 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 first drive: Diesel power and upgraded tech GMC also brings its MultiPro tailgate from the smaller Sierra to the HD party. This soft-opening tailgate has a smaller tailgate nested within it that allows a total of six functions including full-open, half-open, easy access, step-up and extended loading modes. The bed also features box steps on all sides, 12 tie-down points and an available in-bed 120-volt outlet. Inside, the Sierra’s dashboard is home to the familiar GMC Infotainment System — a dark reskin of General Motors’ MyLink/IntelliLink software — featuring snappy navigation, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Like other Sierra and Silverado models, the Sierra HD will also feature available USB-A and USB-C ports, 120-volt outlets and available wireless charging to keep any devices onboard juiced up. Denali and AT4 GMC tells us that more than half of the Sierras it sells are the pricier, premium Denali trim level. So, the 2020 Sierra HD will step up its game to appeal to those buyers with premium leather seating, open-pore real wood trim and dark-finish aluminum details. New for 2020 is an off-road focused AT4 trim level that matches trail-busting capability with the Sierra HD’s heavy-duty capacities. The Sierra HD AT4 will feature an off-road suspension with Rancho Shocks, an Eaton locking rear differential, skid plates and, of course, bright red tow hooks. The rubber meets the dirt road at 18-inch wheels — or optional 20s — wrapped in Michelin all-terrain tires. The heavy-hauling 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD will hit the road later this year in premium Denali and new AT4 trim levels. GMC In addition to the hardware, the AT4 will also get a special off-road software setting for its Traction Select System with hill descent control and hill start assist features. The Sierra’s 15-inch head-up display gets augmented with an off-road inclinometer that shows how severely you’re ascending or descending at a glance and a standard surround-vision camera helps the driver spot the vehicle’s surroundings on tight trails. The 2020 Sierra HD goes on sale later this year in 2500HD and 3500HD dually and single rear wheel configurations. Pricing, packaging and more complete specifications will be announced later closer to launch.

Thanks to improved breathing and cooling, the Duramax is now good for 445 horsepower and a whopping 910 pound-feet of torque, which can be put to the road with better control thanks to the transmission’s close-spaced gear ratios. Towing, you may have guessed, is a big reason people consider heavy-duty pickups, so GMC has loaded the Sierra HD with a laundry list of trailering technologies and electronic traction and stability control acronyms and even integrations with the ProGrade Trailering System’s in-vehicle Trailering App. By stitching together multiple camera views, the 2020 GMC Sierra HD’s Transparent Trailer feature can see through a towed payload. GMC I’m most impressed, however, by the new camera-based trailering technologies. The Sierra HD boasts a ridiculous 15 selectable camera views and a class-first Rear Camera Mirror that allow the driver to get the best view of the road around the large pickup and its payload. None of those 15 views is more impressive than the “Transparent Trailer” mode that stitches together views from two tailgate cameras and an accessory remote camera mounted at the back of the trailer to make the trailer appear invisible when viewed through the dashboard display. It’s like your very own x-ray machine that lets you see through the trailer you’re towing.Easier to work and live with Aesthetically, the Sierra HD is looking pretty good, leading off with a grille and headlamp design that’s much less… divisive than its recently debuted cousin, the Chevrolet Silverado HD. The Sierra HD’s C-shaped LED light signature doesn’t differ too much from the standard-scale Sierra, but its grille is significantly beefier. That grille isn’t the only thing that’s larger. The 2020 Sierra HD is longer with a taller hoodline than the 2019 model, which gives it a more imposing look. However, GMC has designed the Sierra HD to be more approachable and easier to live with, thanks to details like a 1-inch lower bed height that makes for easier loading.

Photo by Arthur Rothstein/LOC/Creative CommonsWASHINGTON (RNS) — A Christian anti-hunger group has released a devotional guide to mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Va.“Lament and Hope: A Pan-African Devotional Guide” was produced by Bread for the World and is set to be dedicated at a prayer service at a Washington church on Thursday (Feb. 28), the last day of Black History Month.The free guide addresses past and current issues of unequal access to land, housing and education. It begins with verses from the Bible’s Book of Lamentations that speak of homelessness and affliction and conclude with a proclamation of the “steadfast love of the Lord.”The Rev. Angelique Walker-Smith speaks at a Religious Freedom Center class for black theological students on Jan. 8, 2019, at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. RNS photo by Adelle M. Banks“We are saying that the history of people of African identity has been a legacy of spiritual resistance,” said the Rev. Angelique Walker-Smith, editor of the guide. “There’s been that resistance against the evils of enslavement and all the things that accompanied that.”The devotional has been released at the start of a year in which many activities commemorating the arrival of the first African captives in Jamestown are planned, including some by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s 400 Years of African-American History Commission that was established by an act of Congress and signed into law by President Trump in early January.Walker-Smith, senior associate for Pan-African and Orthodox Church relations at Bread for the World, said a delegation of young adults from across Africa plans to represent her organization in August at events planned in Jamestown, where people from the modern-day southwest African country of Angola were brought 400 years ago.Bread for the World’s 2019 Pan-African Devotional Guide. Image courtesy of Bread for the WorldBread for the World’s guide was produced to help readers answer questions about how to move from lamentation to hope, drawing on the example of African people who were forced into slavery and protested it, she said.“That spiritual resistance is actually a source of hope and still is a source of hope,” Walker-Smith said.The guide will be promoted through partnerships with global, African and American networks of churches. It features monthly entries written by current and former leaders of the Angola Council of Churches, the United Theological College of the West Indies and the Ecumenical Poverty Initiative.The dedication service and the guide itself will encourage participants to contemplate disparities that remain across the globe and determine ways to advocate to eliminate them, Walker-Smith said.“At the end of the service, there will be a call to action to say you have a role in this narrative, you have an opportunity to be a part of this legacy,” she said. “What are you doing and how can you further this sense of hope?” Adelle M.
