New pick-ups in showrooms across region
GMC has launched its new 2015 Sierra HD lineup, with models including the Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD and the Sierra Denali HD. The line-up advances a 111-year legacy of professional heavy-duty trucks.
The vehicles have proven powertrains, with quiet, comfortable pickup interiors, and a number of pickup-first technologies and cargo box innovations.
The trucks are equipped with a 6.0L Vortec V8 engine pushing out an impressive 360hp and 515Nm of torque.
Trim levels include a Sierra base model, as well as SLE, SLT and Denali. The Sierra Denali HD is offered solelu as a crew cab, matching do-it-all capability with a package of design and upscale interior amenities.
The Sierra HDs’ new styling and an all-new, more comfortable and technology-infused interior are carried forward from the all-new 2014 Sierra Light Duty pickups, including new double cab and revised crew cab body styles.
Features include larger rear doors on each, along with new seat designs, and an additional two inches of additional legroom on crew cabs.
The new interior is also designed to help drivers and passengers, whether they’re on the job or on a weekend getaway, with easier-to-reach, more intuitively located controls, more storage compartments, more plug-ins for electronic devices and next-generation GMC IntelliLink – with an eight-inch-diagonal color touch screen.
Regular, double cab and crew cab models are offered across the lineup. 2500HD and 3500HD regular cab models are matched with an 8’ box, while 2500HD double cab and crew cab models are available with 6’6” or 8’ boxes. Sierra 3500HD double cab is offered exclusively with the 8’ box, while 3500HD crew cabs are available with the 6’6” and 8’ boxes. Dual-rear-wheel configurations are also available on 3500HD.
The powertrains contribute to the new Sierra HDs’ greater payload and towing ratings than previous models, including the segment’s highest payload – 3,345 kilograms – and the highest conventional trailering rating – 8,890 kilograms. The maximum fifth-wheel/gooseneck trailering rating increases to 10,523 kilograms.
