Maximizing Trailering, Payload, and performance in the 2016 Truck

There are trucks that perform and then there are trucks which go beyond the norm to deliver a level of power and performance not seen by other vehicles in its class. The heavy duty 2016 Sierra 3500 GMC Truck delivers such quality. Edmunds has stated that “the Sierra 3500HD is a comfortable truck that boasts strong performance, confident handling and impressive hauling and towing capabilities”. If you have not looked at a heavy duty truck in a while here are some of the key features that set the 2016 Sierra 3500 HD Truck apart from the rest.


The exterior of the 2016 Sierra 3500 HD has been designed with the working man and woman in mind. If looking at the front of the vehicle, the new headlight and grille offers a dominant feature for the vehicle. LED signature lighting is standard on all models, adding not only an aesthetic feature above the standard headlights, but also providing an increased driving experience by maximizing the visibility of the road.

When it came to the cargo and the design of the bed to the cabin of the truck, the engineers wanted to make a fluid design that was both functional and modern. Such features as the CornerStep rear bumper provides the owner with access to the box whether the tailgate is up or down. Available wheel arch moldings add to the design as well as well as the available spray on bed liner.


The Sierra 3500 HD is equipped with a 6.6L V8 Turbo engine. Utilizing the Duramax technology, the HD Truck has a direct injection technology to the design. This allow for the maximum amount of combustion to be used by the engine. The result is better fuel efficiency, higher horse power, and a competitive torque rating as compared to other trucks in its class. GMC’s Sierra 3500 HD is also the only truck within its class to offer a standard fully automatic differential system.

Powertrain and Towing

Heavy Duty trucks have a customer demand of being able to handle a tremendous amount of poundage in towing and in payload. The Sierra 3500 HD offers a competitive maximum fifth-wheel trailering capacity and conventional trailering. Available tools can also help to enhance the towing and driving experience including the Digital Steering Assist, Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, Trailer brake Control, and Rear Vision Camera System. Combined with the high payload capacity, the Sierra 3500 HD can handle about anything you want to haul.


While the power and performance as well as the exterior are impressive, the interior is where the driver is going to spend the majority of the time. It is for this reason that specific considerations have been given to the cabin design. GMC’s 2016 Sierra 3500 has increased the available rear seat legroom as well as re-envisioned the front driver and passenger space. Seating has been designed to cause less fatigue on the driver and passengers. Available heated and ventilated seats are available to further increase the comfort of those aboard.

This is available through the push button features on the steering wheel as well voice available voice activation features and the Intellilink system.
