Along with the new Chevrolet Silverado General Motors also unveils the new GMC Sierra. Underneath both trucks are pretty much identical, but the GMC has a different design, which we prefer. The Silverado is cool, but the Sierra looks kinda funkier!
Both GM trucks share the same engine lineup, which means the 2014 Sierra can be had with a 4.3 liter V6, a 5.3 liter V8 or a 6.2 liter V8 – with power and consumption numbers to be announced later.
New for the Sierra is an electric power steering, premium soft-touch materials, and a new instrument cluster on all models featuring six gauges with 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. It also gets a version of the MyLink infotainment system with an eight-inch color touchscreen.
The Sierra CrewCab model comes in two bed lengths; the current 5-foot, 8-inch box, and a new 6-foot, 6-inch. Regular cabs continue to be available with the 6-foot, 6-inch or 8-foot box lengths. You also get a couple of advanced safety features with this truck, including Forward Collision Alert, Land Departure Warning, and Driver Alert Seat, like the one in the Cadillac XTS.
2014 Sierra benefits form a new All-Terrai package, which includes the Z71 off-road suspension with monotube Rancho shocks, hill descent control, front recovery hooks, a transfer case shield and unique wheels and tires, along with an automatic locking rear differential that reacts in milliseconds in low-traction situations to improve safety and confidence on wet, snowy or muddy surfaces.
New GMC Sierra will be n display alongside the Silverado at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.
