Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

Sharing much the same underpinnings with the Chevrolet Silverado HD pickup truck, the GMC Sierra HD provides truck buyers with a bit more style and luxury — especially in Denali trim. Its light-duty sibling, the 1500, was completely redesigned for 2014, but the heavy-duty 2500HD and 3500HD variants carry on. Updated versions are expected early in 2014 as 2015 models.
New for 2014
Gas trucks now have a standard 4.10 axle ratio; a 3.73 ratio is available. A spray-on bedliner is available and a bi-fuel version of the 2500HD crew cab can run on gasoline or compressed natural gas.
Exterior Highlights

  • Regular-cab or crew-cab body styles
  • Standard or long bed
  • Available dual rear wheels (3500HD)
  • Available Z71 Off-Road Package
  • 17-inch wheels; 18- or 20-inch wheels available
  • Front tow hooks
  • Available heated and power-adjustable camper side mirrors
  • Available power sunroof

Interior Highlights

  • Seats up to six people (crew cab)
  • Many storage spaces
  • Vinyl, cloth or leather upholstery
  • Front bench or bucket seats
  • Available Bluetooth connectivity
  • Available navigation system
  • Available power-adjustable pedals
  • Available power-sliding rear window
  • Available backseat entertainment system

Under the Hood

  • 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel V-8 makes 397 hp and 765 pounds-feet of torque
  • Both engines work with a ...

Love the truck. Unhappy with the manufacturer

by Nick from Marysville , Ohio on March 25, 2018

I bought the diesel brand new. I could smell antifreeze in the front after a week. The dealership could not find a problem. After 32000 miles I had a low coolant alarm. After 4 days and some help from ... Read full review

fowl like a locomotive

by retired & camping from Jacksonville, FL on August 12, 2014

We use our GMC Denali 2500 mostly for towing our 7,500 pound travel trailer. A big factor in high ratings is the diesel. With the tow/haul mode engaged, the mountains of north Georgia and the Smokies ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
