2014 GMC Sierra
Following right on the tailgate of the all-new Chevrolet Silverado, comes an equally new 2014 GMC Sierra full-size pickup truck. As before, most of the mechanical bits and pieces are shared, but this time around GMC gets some more detailed trim work for the Sierra, helping it somehow look both more refined and more rugged.
Underhood is the same trio of all-new aluminum overhead valve engines, ranging from the 4.3-liter V6 to a 6.2-liter V8, with the volume 5.3-liter V8 in between.
Opt for the big-boy and you can tow up to 12,000 pounds, but the 5.3-liter does almost as well, pulling 11,500.
BRIAN ROBINSON: It’s amazing how much the capabilities of light-duty pickups have increased in just the last couple of years. For now, the GMC Sierra is at the top of the heap, but who knows for how long. If this keeps up we’ll have to come up with a new name, as light-duty just doesn’t cut it anymore.
JOHN DAVIS: But even with that, interior refinement is the new Sierra’s greatest conquest. Seats are more comfy and the cabin is very quiet. Safety gets a boost with a Driver Alert Seat that vibrates when danger is detected.
On sale now, the 2014 GMC Sierra starts just over $25,000. A full-up Denali version will arrive later this year.
