To let you engage an extra measure of braking confidence on long grades, or in Tow/Haul mode, Sierra HD utilizes various technologies to ensure you stay at the desired speeds:

DURAMAX DIESEL 6.6L V8 TURBO
The advanced Duramax diesel in the Sierra 2500HD delivers 397 hp and 765 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful Sierra ever. Paired with the sophisticated Allison 1000 Series Transmission with overdrive, this powertrain also offers a maximum highway range of up to 680 miles on a single fill-up.
ALLISON 1000 SERIES TRANSMISSION
The enhanced Allison 1000 is strengthened to handle the higher torque capability of the 6.6L Duramax engine, while also helping improve fuel economy and provide seamless assistance with the exhaust brake system. Over 1.2 million have been sold. Plus, it’s produced by the same company that makes transmissions for military operations.
DIRECT INJECTION TECHNOLOGY
For faster starts in cold weather, quieter operation and maximum efficiency, the direct injection system helps Sierra 2500HD start in as little as 3.0 seconds at -40ºC and operates at nearly 30,000 psi to turn heavy diesel fuel into a fine mist, burning cleaner and faster with lower emissions and greater power than the previous model.
Sierra HD delivers a smoother ride with a fully independent coil-over-shock front suspension and 3-inch wide multistage rear leaf springs, which engage progressively as the load in the bed or on the hitch increases.
VARIABLE VALVE TIMING
For strong, steady power to bold acceleration on the highway, the 6.0L V8 with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) is up to any task by:
- Delivering power when needed and efficiency when less power is called for
- Monitoring and opening and closing valves for near peak levels of torque across the entire range of engine speeds
EATON AUTOMATIC LOCKING REAR DIFFERENTIAL
No other competitor in Sierra HD’s class offers a fully automatic locking rear differential for on or off-road use.
- Delivers added traction in driving and wheel-slip situations
