Comparing the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 to the 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 HD

The numerical naming system of the GMC Sierra pickup truck is the easiest way to distinguish one model from the other. To be more exact, the GMC Sierra 1500 is built for light-duty work while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD is built for heavy-duty work. In other words, what makes these two options different are the components they wield inside. Their powertrains are as follows:

2017 GMC Sierra 1500

 

The standard powertrain on the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 is comprised of a 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 and a 6-Speed Automatic Transmission system. The result is a source of 305 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque, which effectively translates to a stunning maximum payload of 1,960 pounds and conventional trailering of 6,000 pounds. These figures alone should be enough to impress most. Yet the new Sierra 1500 is also available with two other engines for drivers who long for more power still. These include a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 that generates up to 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque as well as a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 that generates up to 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. As you can imagine, these two advanced engines increase capability exponentially.

2017 GMC Sierra 2500 HD

 

The standard powertrain on the 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 HD is more impressive still. Energy is provided by a Vortec® 6.0L Variable Valve Timing V8 FSI that pumps out a whopping 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. This firepower, when paired with the Allison® 1000 6-Speed Automatic Transmission, offers a maximum payload of 3,534 pounds and conventional trailering of 14,500 pounds. And if these figures still do not satisfy you, perhaps the available Turbocharged Diesel V8 engine will with its 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque that supplies a monstrous amount of capability.
