Small pickups and half-ton trucks are great for routine jobs, but when the workload gets extreme you’re going to want the segment-leading capability of the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD in your corner. Redesigned for 2015, the Sierra HD lineup, on sale now here at Colonial Buick GMC in Watertown, Massachusetts, is even more capable with improved towing capacity; all-new, more comfortable and connected interior; more standard equipment; and bold, “Professional Grade” styling.
Strong, durable powertrains are at the heart of the capability built into the 2015 Sierra 3500HD (MSRP from $33,635). There’s a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 with FlexFuel capability that lays down 360 hp and 380 lb/ft of torque, and there’s also a version of this engine that can run on compressed natural gas (CNG). For the biggest jobs, choose the monstrous 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8 with its 397 hp and 765 lb/ft of torque, which is paired with a bulletproof six-speed Allison 1000 automatic transmission engineered for at least 200,000 miles of heavy-duty use without needing a major overhaul. The Duramax brings a segment-best conventional trailer tow rating of 19,600 pounds and a maximum fifth-wheel or gooseneck rating of 23,200 pounds.
GMC built the new Sierra 3500HD with a fully boxed frame, advanced vehicle control technologies and beefed-up front and rear suspensions to ensure it could not only tow and haul just about anything, but do so easily and dependably. With more than 150 possible build configurations––choices include single- and dual-axle styles, plus a variety of cab styles and bed lengths––the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD can be fitted to meet the needs of any job. Adding to their value, Sierra HD trucks come standard with the GMC Pro Grade Protection plan, which includes two years of scheduled maintenance, including diesel exhaust fluid, as well as a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty and a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
Its imposing new design and signature LED-trimmed headlamps make the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD impossible to miss. You can also kick things up a notch with the bolder styling and more luxurious interior appointments afforded by the Sierra Denali HD. Either way, the new Sierra 3500HD cabin is quieter and more refined, with premium materials, soft-touch surfaces and a greater attention to detail. For example, the seats in the Sierra HD feature dual-density foam designed to stay comfortable over long hours of use and look great for years. You can choose leather upholstery or new high-wear cloth that’s stain resistant and more durable. Stand-out features include LED cargo box lighting, standard CornerStep rear bumper, EZ Lift and Lower tailgate, standard upper tie-downs in the cargo bed and an available factory-installed spray-in bed liner. There’s also OnStar with 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi hot-spot.
The 2015 Sierra HD offers the luxury and cabin technology of a premium luxury sedan, not to mention enough towing and payload capacity to haul almost anything imaginable. It’s a popular combination, as GMC reports that one-third of its Sierra HD sales are Denali models.
In their review, Edmunds.com editors said, “Whether driven through city streets, on open highways or on twisty mountain roads, the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 does itself proud. We have to give it top marks for its civility.”
