CR Model Summary
The Sierra HD and its twin, the Chevrolet Silverado HD, are designed for heavy towing and hauling. The 6.0-liter V8 and 6.6-liter turbodiesel are both mated to a six-speed automatic, and are carry-overs on the 2015 redesign. There is also a natural gas (CNG) version of the 6.0-liter V8. GM said that the new cabs and interiors provide increased space and comfort, with extensive storage space. The new Sierra 2500HD has standard head-curtain and seat-mounted side air bags.
