The 2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD was named first in the one-ton diesel category in the 2014 Ultimate Heavy Duty Challenge after going up against the likes of the Ford F-350 and Ram 3500.
The editors at Cars.com, PickupTrucks.com, and Mrtrucks.com put the 2015 Sierra at the top after extensive testing, which put all three trucks to the test. For the challenge, these trucks are all one-ton, 4X4 crew cab trucks equipped with their maximum-output turbo-diesel engines.
Thanks to its 6.6-liter V8 Duramax engine, the 2015 Sierra brings a maximum payload and trailering capacity of 6,308 lbs and 23,200 lbs to the table, respectively. It also integrates the diesel exhaust brake with the grade braking and cruise control, helping to make for a stress-free experience while hauling heavy cargo over long distances.
“The GMC, although the least expensive truck in our test, offered the smoothest and most comfortable ride over many uncomfortable road surfaces,” said the editors at PickupTrucks.com. “The Duramax turbo-diesel and Allison 1000 transmission deliver power fast off the line, providing monster amounts of torque to the rear wheels quickly and forcefully.”
So if you want a heavy work truck that’s actually affordable and the best in its class, you can check out the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD at Simi Valley Buick GMC!
