I'm betting it's a factory test truck.

It's just been within the last week or two that automotive journalists attended a media first drive event near Bend, OR, so it seems impossible that trucks are for sale already.


Order banks opened in March and first deliveries were scheduled for last week. Check autotrader.com and you will see some already listed for sale. Some of the models like the duallies do have a later production start.

I hit a couple of dealers today.
N0 2020s around. Nothing on AutoTrader.com today either.


I did spec out a pending order for a 3500 Dually.
The paperwork states that the duallys are available to order 7/18-7/19


From what I have read the earliest possible delivery date was July 1. That was for crewcab standard bed only. My guess is there will only be a trickle of them for a while and finding one to see will not be easy. I did do a nationwide search on autotrader for a 2020 GMC 2500 and came up with 28 pages of listings. There are no pictures so my guess is none are on the ground. They do show the sticker price and GM has caught up with Ford and Ram in the pricing category. Many of them are north of $80K.

In watching one of the GM truck forums some of the guys who ordered early do have confirmation of their trucks being built, pending delivery or hung up in quality control. I'm not sure I would want to be one of the first.

The ones on order here are built and waiting for the transport West. I have ordered first year trucks (including an 01 Duramax 3500) and have not been bite with any real issues, nothing more than computer updates. This pickup has seen more R&D than probably anything since 01 as I understand it, given the new tranny and increase in GVW it would make sense. The L5P has not had any issues that I have heard or experienced so, I would not be concerned about buying a 2020.

The gas powered trucks have a fake hood scoop. The diesel powered trucks have a real hood scoop.
