The 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD goes Diesel
The new GMC Sierra 2500HD got a serious engine overhaul and added a new fuel type to make this truck more durable, accessible and efficient for all types of drivers. With an upscale interior and plenty of safety features, this truck does have it all. Take a look at some of our favorite details.
This truck has always been about options, thanks to all the available options: three cab styles, five wheelbases, two bed lengths, and three engines. The base models start at 6.0-liter gas or CNG V-8 engines, but the upgrade to the 6.6-liter turbodiesel with Allison transmission is truly worth the money. You’ll get a hood scoop that plays a role beyond vanity; it actually contributes to the intake for the diesel engine giving you more power when you need it. And you’ll discover plenty of towing and payload capacity – maximum payload is 4043 pounds, and maximum towing is up to 18,000 pounds.
But GMC didn’t spend all its time renovating under the hood; some serious thought went into the luxurious interior as well. Leather on the steering wheel and the seats is available heated and from the moment you sit down, you’ll notice the seats are plush enough to handle long-haul treks to and from the job site. And this is GMC’s quietest cabin yet with triple-seal doors to block road noise and keep the outside distractions outside. And never miss a beat on the job site with the available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, plenty of power outlets and charging stations, and 8-inch color touchscreen with connectivity to your smartphone maps navigation and weather information.
Your safety is a top priority for GMC, so the Sierra 2500HD is loaded with cutting-edge technology to assist the driver and actively prevent accidents before they happen. Discover the available Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alerts, and Safety Alert Driver Seat to help you feel like you have a second set of eyes on the road. And when you need an extra hand, the Front and Rear Park assist, and the Rear Vision Camera will make any job easier. Not to mention the standard six airbags and available OnStar subscription means you’re never alone when driving and help, for any reason, is just a button push away.
Fall in love with the aggressive styling, plush interior, and reassuring security that the GMC Sierra 2500HD can offer you. Check out our inventory now, then test drive this pick-up and take it home!
