2015 Sierra Beats Heavy Duty Challenge

2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD Newnan, GA 1GT422CGXFF110642

There’s no greater feeling in the world than knowing you drive the best truck out there. You climb into the cab and know you can tackle anything the day throws at you. You feel safe and secure and are eager to begin towing or hauling or whatever project you have. This is the same thrill you receive in the driver’s seat of the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 HD. This truck was awarded the overall winning title in the 1-ton diesel category of the 2014 Heavy Duty Challenge. Here’s why.

The 2015 Sierra 3500 was put up against its two main competitors, the Ford F350 and the Ram 3500. It’s engine, the 6.6L Duramax Diesel, excelled against the engines of the other two, the Powerstroke diesel and Cummins diesel, respectively. The judges at the event even commented on the inside of the Sierra saying how much they enjoyed the newly designed interior and infotainment display. This truck scored high in vehicle control while towing. Cruise control, diesel exhaust brakes and grade braking help to relieve stress for drivers who do a lot of long-distance hauling and towing.

One of the tests performed was to descend 7.2 miles down the Eisenhower Pass in Colorado, which has up to a 7 percent grade. During this test, they counted how many brake pedal depressions were used. While the Ford tested with one brake depression and the Ram with five, the Sierra blew them out of the water with no brake pedal depressions at all. This is incredible. It also won in several other categories as well including the 0-60 mph on the Milan dragway, fuel economy with a trailer, and the 60-0 mpg braking at Proving Ground. All of these tests have proved that the Sierra is the best truck in class on the market today. Every Sierra HD comes with a five-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, Pro Grade Protection, and a two-year or 24,000 mile standard scheduled maintenance.
