2016 GMC SIERRA HD: The 2016 GMC Sierra 2500HD, 3500HD and Denali HD models are on display at the 108th annual Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 13-21, 2016. For this year, the Sierra HD 2500HD and 3500 HD lineups includes regular, double cab and crew cab models with 6-ft 6-in and 8-ft box lengths. A Vortec 6.0-liter gas V-8 with variable valve timing is matched with the Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission as the standard powertrain across the Sierra HD model range. This combination is engineered to deliver 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque for all pickup models, and 322hp and 380 lb-ft in 3500HD for chassis cab models. The available 6.0L engine is a bi-fuel setup that enables it to run on compressed natural gas or gasoline. Then there is the mighty Duramax 6.6L diesel that generates 397hp and 765 lb-ft of torque, and comes linked with an Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. Depending on powertrain setup, the '16 Sierra HD has a trailering rating of 14,500-lbs., up to 23,200-lbs with the dual-rear wheel fifth-wheel setup. A new Gooseneck/5th Wheel Trailering Prep Package is offered and makes Sierra HD models ready right from the factory to tow larger trailers. Trim levels include a Sierra Base, as well as SLE, SLT and Denali. The all-new interior is designed to help drivers and passengers with easier-to-reach, more intuitively located controls, more storage compartments, more plug-ins for electronic devices and the latest-generation GMC IntelliLink infotainment system - with an eight-inch-diagonal color touch screen. A rear-vision camera system is standard on SLE, SLT and Denali to give the driver a view of items behind the vehicle. It can also assist with lining up in front of a trailer. Available features for 2016 include wireless phone charging, remote locking tailgate, high-intensity discharge projector-beam headlamps and LED lighting. Buyers have their choice of paint colors, including Crimson Red tintcoat (double cab only), Cardinal Red, Deep Garnet metallic (crew cab only) and Mahogany metallic.
