GMC Sierra 3500 Named Ultimate One-Ton Truck

It’s the ultimate question among truck-lovers: which truck is the best? Ask anyone with any kind of experience with trucks and you’ll get a pretty biased answer about their personal favorite truck.

But what happens when you objectively compare all of the one-ton trucks on the market to determine the ultimate champion? That’s exactly what PickupTruck.com set out to do.

They created a tough set of 19 tests and paired it with judged criteria to determine what we here at Crawford Buick GMC already knew: the GMC Sierra 3500 is the Ultimate One-Ton Truck.

The Sierra won the competition by a clear margin by having the smoothest and most comfortable ride and the best fuel economy, even when towing a 20,000 pound trailer from Las Vegas to Denver. However, the interior with its multimedia interface along with the 8-inch navigation screen pushed the Sierra over the edge to ensure the victory.

The Sierra managed to beat out all of its competitors even while being the least expensive truck in the competition.

Do you use your truck for work? Do you need to be able to haul some serious weight? If you answered “Yes” to either of these questions, we have just the truck for you! According to the new industry-wide SAE J2807 calculations, the Sierra has the ability to tow up to 12,000 lbs. This says a lot about the Sierra’s ability to tow. Before the new calculations were introduced, most trucks had a higher max tow rating. After the new calculations, most trucks lost some serious poundage. The Sierra 1500, however, was one of the only trucks that did not.

The 12,000 lb. rating is specifically for the double cab two-wheel drive, 6.2-liter V8 version of the Sierra 1500. It is also important to note that this engine is the most powerful available in the light-duty segment and offers an astounding 420-horsepower and 460-lb-ft of torque. It also features EcoTec3 technology making it more efficient while keeping up with performance needs.

GM Introduces 2015 GMC Sierra HD

2015 Sierra HD Last month, General Motors gave us a peak at the all-new 2015 GMC Sierra HD. These new heavy-duty trucks will be available early next year and include the 2500HD, 3500HD, and the luxurious Denali HD. These trucks offer many class-leading features.

Helping you get the job done is the highest payload capacity available in the segment: 7,374 pounds. This is paired with the highest conventional trailering rating of 19,600 pounds and fifth-wheel trailering capabilities of 23,200 pounds.

The GMC HD trucks are available with gasoline or Duramax diesel engines and a bi-fuel option that combines a compressed natural gas system with a gasoline engine.

Just because your truck is heavy-duty, that doesn’t mean you don’t want to be comfortable. Inside, you’ll find high-tech features and a comfortable interior. GM used larger rear doors and a revised cab body style to make it easier to get in and out of the truck. The back seat also gets 2 more inches of legroom.

Controls are easy-to-reach from the driver’s seat and located where you would expect. There are also more storage compartments and more outlets and plug-ins for your electronic devices. This is all in addition to the GMC IntelliLink infotainment system that comes with an 8-inch color touch screen.
