ALG Presents Sierra HD and Silverado HD with 2020 Technology Innovation Award

ALG recently revealed the winners of its prestigious 2020 Innovation Awards. These awards go to vehicles that utilize impressive design elements, features and technologies. Both the GMC Sierra HD and the Chevrolet Silverado HD won the 2020 Technology Innovation Award.  

In its second year of presenting the Innovation Awards, ALG specifically recognized vehicles that performed well in design, convenience, powertrain and technology categories. Eric Lyman, Chief Industry Analyst at ALG, a subsidiary of TrueCar, said, “This year’s winners have set the bar high in their respective categories and have given consumers a reason to consider them when shopping for their next new vehicle.”

ALG was impressed by the towing technologies in the GMC Sierra HD and the Chevrolet Silverado HD, which led to the trucks’ award win. For the 2020 model year, both trucks offer up to 15 available camera views so that you can more easily take tight turns and hitch your trailer.

You can opt to have the Bed View, Hitch View and even the Transparent Trailer View, which can help you keep an eye on the traffic behind you. You can check out the different views conveniently using the available infotainment system.   

If you’re in the market for a capable truck with the latest technologies, consider the 2020 GMC Sierra HD or the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. You can take each model out for test drive at Curry Auto Center.

How the 2020 GMC Yukon and Acadia Differ

The 2020 GMC Yukon and Acadia are luxurious options for large families. The sizeable SUVS are both comfortable and sophisticated options, though there are some key differences that can help you select the model that can best suit your needs.

Interior features

The midsize Acadia can seat up to seven passengers in its cabin, while the full-size Yukon can hold up to nine passengers. In the Acadia, you can fold down the second and third rows to get 79 cubic feet of cargo volume. The Yukon offers more cargo volume behind the first row with 94.7 cubic feet of space.  

Both of these models have cozy cabins with standard amenities, like tri-zone automatic climate control and 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capabilities. However, the base trim of the Acadia comes standard with different technologies, such as Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, which are not available on the base trim of the Yukon.

Powertrain lineup

As the larger of the two vehicles, the Yukon offers more powerful powertrains, the most impressive being the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8, which delivers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The Acadia gives you three engine options so you are better able to find the right combination of power and efficiency for the SUV. Its most powerful engine is the 3.6-liter V6, which produces 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.

If you have a larger family in need of more space and power, the 2020 GMC Yukon is a great option. The 2020 GMC Acadia is ideal for families in need of less space and wanting more technologies. Check out both SUVs when you visit Curry Auto Center.
