Guest Post: GMC Sierra – Trucks with Brute Force
The General Motors Truck Company (GMC) has been making commercial vehicles of all types for a century. During their long history they have produced every type of heavy vehicle from fire engines and ambulances to motor homes and coaches and even manufactured over 600,000 trucks for the US military during the Second World War. All of this experience has gone into the design of their latest general purpose pickup the Sierra.
The large, durable design of the Sierra is powered by a 5.3 liter V8 that generates 355 hp with 383 lb-ft of torque that gives it a towing capacity of 11,500 pounds. The latest technology in direct fuel injection and variable valve timing make this one of the most efficient and economical engines, and because it is paired with a six speed automatic transmission the Sierra delivers that power where you want to use it. The fully independent suspension and features like traction control, hill descent assistance and variable assist rack, and pinion steering give the Sierra reliable handling even in the roughest conditions.
According to the GMC experts at our local GM showroom, Williamson GMC of Miami, the Sierra’s power is housed in a solidly designed body that uses high strength steel in a fully boxed frame to ensure that the Sierra is robust enough to be a quality work vehicle. Other design features like the large cargo box with corner step rear bumper that provides easy access even with the tail gate lowered make it a practical work horse. The comfort of the interior isn’t overlooked either with the use of durable soft touch materials, dual density seats that retain their shape for longer and ample leg room in the rear seats of the crew cab models. This is all backed by a 3 year/ 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and 100,000 mile warranty for the drive train so that you can be sure to get real value for money from your new GMC Sierra.
