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.

Production is Underway on 2013 GMC Sierra HD Bi-Fuel Pickup Truck

Vortec engineWhile the typical heavy duty truck driver may not have a lot in common with a hybrid car driver, we can all appreciate fewer trips to the gas station for fill ups. To help extend your miles on the road, GMC has begun production on the new 2013 Sierra 2500 HD bi-fuel pickup truck, a truck with an engine capable of running on gasoline or compressed natural gas.

The Sierra 2500 HD, along with its counterpart, the Silverado HD, features a Vortec 6.0-liter engine that can seamlessly switch between the gasoline and compressed natural gas system without affecting performance. With both fuel types combines, the Sierra HD is able to travel a range of 650 miles before the need to refuel arises.

“Customers are choosing our bi-fuel trucks because they provide the same high level of GM truck performance and versatility but can also help businesses control their fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprint,” said Ed Peper, General Motors U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales.

As is the case with the original Sierra pickup line, the Sierra 2500 HD bi-fuel pickup in available in a variety of configurations. Drivers can choose between standard and long-box, as well as have the choice of either two-or-four wheel drive in the extended cab models.
