The Sierra HD is a beastly heavy-duty full size truck. Available as a Sierra 2500HD or Sierra 3500HD trim, it offers strong engines, versatile interiors and boast worthy ride and handling. It is the more attractive option when searching for a heavy-duty truck.
Both the Sierra 2500 and 3500 are available with an option of two engines, the base engine is an iron block 6.0 liter V8 making 360 horsepower and 380 lb/ft of torque. A 6.6-liter iron block diesel is also available as an option, offering 365 horsepower and an outstanding 660 lb/ft of torque, the Sierra HD is so distinguished, it’s hard to miss. Car and Driver was quoted saying, “If I needed a brand-new pickup, I know to which company I’d be writing my check: General Motors.”
Most heavy-duty trucks are built to pull and haul and the Sierra HD is certainly no exception. The designers went above and beyond to give it more than enough capability to haul whatever has the privilege of being hooked up to its latch. The Sierra 3500 version can haul up to an astonishing 5,309 pounds- enough to haul the weight of an Asian Elephant! If you’re not planning on hauling an Asian Elephant anytime soon, the 2500 models can handle more than 3,900 pounds. If you are looking more for a towing package, a correctly configured Sierra 2500 or 3500 can tow up to 13,000 pounds!
With a slightly more upscale appearance, awesome hauling and towing capabilities, as well as some luxurious interior touches, the HD is one of the most eminent trucks manufactured by GMC.
