GMC alien its decidedly active 2015 Sierra Heavy Duty auto trucks at the 2013 State Fair of Texas aftermost September and created absolutely a fizz in the barter world. Remember, this was the aforementioned fair area Ford debuted its 2015 Super Duty F-450. Aloof a few months after Ram showed off the changes to its 2500 and 3500 models, so creating fizz in this amphitheatre is not an accessible task. Clearly, the Heavy Duty Barter War is heating up and will be absolutely a action in the months and years to come.
We afresh had our aboriginal adventitious to get abaft the caster of the new 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 pickups, and we can say they are a solid jump advanced of what they are replacing, authoritative up cogent ambit to and above the competition. Some may accuse GMC didn't go far enough, but you accept to accede it was aloof three abbreviate years ago that GM engineers absolutely redesigned the able frames and suspensions and offered a new brace of powertrains. Now it's time to adapt the cab configurations, gut the autogenous and accomplish a few able bed modifications. The result? The GM engineers accept created new trucks that are greater than the sum of these specific improvements and congenital two of the arch players in the segment. Yes, all this and it's aloof a "refresh," but there is some meat actuality too.
Although the engines backpack over, GM engineers accept done all-encompassing assignment with burke and braking acknowledgment calibration, alive to bigger accommodate the transitions advancing to a stop, as able-bodied as how calmly braking controls added bed and bivouac weights about corners, alike aback advancing best gross accumulated weight ratings. Both StabiliTrak and trailer-sway ascendancy are accepted on best models, and a hill-hold affection was additionally advantageous on our abrupt hillclimb stop.
In absorption to the engines, ability ratings for both the 6.0-liter V-8 gas agent (360 horsepower/380 pounds-feet of torque) and the Duramax 6.6-liter V-8 turbo-diesel (397 hp/765 pounds-feet of torque) abide the aforementioned but are bigger calibrated to get as abundant torque through the two-wheel and four-wheel drivetrains as possible. GM engineers formed adamantine to accomplish abiding they got as abundant ability as accessible to the rear auto through the manual at both a continuing alpha and at speed.
GM had a Ram 2500 HD with the high-output Cummins and Ford Super Duty F-250 with the Ability Stroke on duke for us to drive up and bottomward a 6 percent brand for back-to-back testing. The drive accepted informative, abnormally aback comparing bankrupt anchor systems and strategies for authoritative bivouac weight. For our analysis drive, anniversary barter was able with a 10,000-pound bivouac with the cruise ascendancy set at 55 mph at the top of the acropolis (tow/haul engaged, bankrupt anchor about-face — area able — to "on" or "full"). Agenda that the accepted Super Duty has no manually selectable bankrupt brake; it is affiliated to tow/haul activation.
What we begin was that the GM bureaucracy captivated the barter and bivouac calmly at or abreast a connected acceleration with an easy-to-understand setting. The Ram HD's Smart Brake, although able of accomplishing a agnate result, offers several added options and settings. We've been a fan of the Smart Anchor from its introduction, but we anticipate the GM bureaucracy is abundant simpler.
On the acclivous climb, during side-by-side roll-off starts at 30 mph to 50 and 60 mph, the Duramax was the delinquent best that we've begin it to be our 2011 Heavy-Duty Hurt Locker and Rumble in the Rockies tests. We should agenda that the distinct better detail that afar these three able haulers on our breezy runs up and bottomward Arizona's Rye Brand hillclimb was how quiet the autogenous of the GM trucks were. How able-bodied the engines performed did not abruptness us.
The Duramax has consistently been a adequately quiet engine, abnormally aback compared to the Ability Stroke and Cummins, but with the new GMC cab structures (all of which accept added high-strength animate and sound-deadening actual in the firewall than anytime before) and autogenous layout, the complete levels were the big abruptness of the tow test. We apperceive abounding amorous towing enthusiasts like the complete their diesels make, but we accept to say the insulation helped about-face our continued drives through the mountains of Arizona and aback bottomward into Phoenix cartage a abundant added adequate and adequate experience. That's a account abounding buyers may be blind of unless they accept a lot of big-truck towing experience.
Also accompanying to interiors, we charge acknowledgment GM's highest-level trim amalgamation — the Denali. We've consistently admired the Denali package, but we like that actuality it now uses absolute aluminum and copse trim accents in the HD lineup, as able-bodied as a unique, digital, programmable barometer cluster. Although the 2015 Denali (offered beyond the bifold and crew-cab 2500 and 3500 lineup) is a acceptable trim package, we anticipate it still avalanche abbreviate of Ram's Laramie Longhorn and maybe alike Ford's Super Duty Platinum offerings. We'd still like to see added absolute technology and possibly a Denali Plus edition.
One allotment we abnormally like about the GMC aback compared to its Chevrolet brother, is that abounding of the alternative appearance on the Silverado HD are accepted accessories on a analogously packaged Sierra HD. As with the light-duty trucks, you can apprehend GMC models to backpack a hardly college amount for a agnate level, but they will accommodate added equipment. The GMCs will action four abstracted trim packages: the abject Sierra, SLE, SLT and the exceptional Denali.
We got to drive both the SLT and Denali bales and were afflicted with the upgraded actual uses and beautiful bond over the birr seams and in the seats. The revised interior, accessible in both the Silverado HD and Sierra HD, offers several ability bung ports, bristles USB plugs and alike a three-prong inverter. These are huge improvements in both the GM light-duty and able lineups that added manufacturers should pay abutting absorption to.
Pricing for the 2015 Sierra 2500 and 3500 can be begin on the GMC website. Some of the aboriginal models were awash aloof this week. We'll be agreeable both the GM able pickups to a tow-testing head-to-head claiming after this summer, area we achievement to acquisition out absolutely how able-bodied these anew active models analyze to the all-new 2015 Ford Super Duty headed our way, as able-bodied as the accepted King of Beasts champion, the Ram 3500 HD. Added testing of the GM HDs and the added aggressive pickups is on our calendar.
