2013 GMC Sierra 2500HD Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
The HD Sierra is designed for heavy towing and hauling, and rides stiffer than the Silverado 1500. The standard engine is a 6.0-liter V8. Our tested 397-hp, 6.6-liter turbodiesel produced a whopping 765 foot-pounds of torque and could haul close to a 2,500-pound payload. The diesel is punchy but noisy, and the Allison-made six-speed automatic is smooth.

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
