GMC reveals all-new 2014 Sierra pickup truck

GMC today released the first photos and information of its all-new 2014 Sierra 1500 full-size pickup.

The GM-owned carmaker describes the new Sierra as „the most powerful, most advanced and most refined truck in the brand’s 110-year history”. Just like Chevrolet’s new Silverado, the GMC Sierra benefits from three new EcoTec3 engines, revised steering, suspension and brakes and a fully updated cabin with available next-generation IntelliLink connectivity.

GMC says the 2014 Sierra boasts the longest list of standard features ever for a full-size GMC pickup, ranging from connectivity solutions and a standard tie-down system in the rear, to the segment’s only standard projector beam headlamps.

The engine range consists of three new EcoTec3 units: a 4.3-liter V-6, a 5.3-liter V-8 and a 6.2-liter V-8. All three offer more power, torque and fuel efficiency, although GMC hasn’t yet revealed specific details, as SAE-certified horsepower and torque ratings and EPA fuel economy estimates for the new Sierra are expected to be finalized early next year.

Each engine features standard direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management, automatically switching to run on four cylinders during light-load driving to save fuel. The 2014 GMC Sierra features four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife brake rotors, which feature a hardened and strengthened surface to reduce corrosion. GM says Duralife rotors are expected to last twice as long as conventional rotors and provide quieter braking with less vibration.

The 2014 Sierra also uses electric power steering instead of an engine-driven hydraulic pump, saving fuel and allowing „a more consistent, crisp steering feel and plenty of assist for parking maneuvers.”

On the inside, the 2014 Sierra has an upright instrument panel with a new cluster featuring six gauges and an available centrally located, 4.2-inch color Driver Information Center with vehicle status information, a trip computer, and other information, like radio and navigation. The cabin also has new soft-touch materials and available aluminum trim line.

Crew Cab customers, who represent more than 60 percent of retail Sierra customers, can choose between two bed lengths; in addition to the current 5-foot, 8-inch box, a new 6-foot, 6-inch box is available. Regular cabs continue to be available with the 6-foot, 6-inch or 8-foot box lengths, while the extended cab will come exclusively with a 6-foot, 6-inch box.
