The Sierra 3500HD is Tough!

The GMC Sierra 3500HD recently won the 2014 Ultimate Heavy Duty Challenge in the 1-ton diesel category! The title and the win were given to the Sierra by PickupTrucks.com, Cars.com, and Mrtruck.com which are all reputable truck experts in the auto industry. In order to receive top honors, the 3500HD had to outdo its tough competition, the Ford F350 and the Ram 3500.

The testers gave the Sierra 3500HD praise for not only its on-the-job work capabilities, but its interior comfort features for when you’re off the job. The car experts noted the Sierra’s tough and durable 6.6-liter Duramax Diesel engine, its towing capabilities, cruise control, and exhaust brake. The judges also liked the Sierra’s 8-inch screen for entertainment and navigation.

The Ram 3500 came in second place with its Cummins turbo-diesel engine and the Ford came in the third spot with its Powerstroke turbo-diesel engine. All trucks were put to multiple tests to see which one did the best under pressure. Some of the tests included hill climbs, dragway performance, braking capability, and max load trailering stability.

The Sierra experienced its fourth consecutive month of sales gains and its best May since 2007. The Sierra HD alone experienced a sales increase of one-third compared to April because of its reliability, dependability, and great towing capacity.

The Yukon has been smashing sales numbers with the introduction of the new model year. GMC’s full-size SUV experienced a whopping 138% retail sales growth year-over-year. The Yukon alone accounted for more than three-quarters of GMC’s total May retail sales.
