To help you get more in every load, and get more done every day, the new Sierra HD has the
strongest frame we’ve ever built into an HD pickup. Crafted with high-strength alloy steel, and
fully boxed from front to rear, it is engineered for a maximum Gross Combined Weight Rating
(GCWR) of 29,200 lbs 1— the highest rating in its class.
The sturdy boxed frame also allowed through-rail mounting for the tubular
chassis cross-members. This mounting gives maximum support and resistance
to twisting on uneven road surfaces.

For the best strength-to-weight balance, the new Sierra HD frame is built up from three
individual sections. This design made it possible to optimize each section for its task, from
mounting the engine and transmission in the front section, to supporting the cab in the center
section, to providing a solid platform for a segment-leading maximum payload and efficient
fifth-wheel installation in the rear section. Together, these sections form a frame with almost
twice the resistance to bending as the previous model.

For maximum strength, the new Sierra HD frame features a hydroformed front frame section.
This metal-forming process preserves uniform steel thickness throughout. To create the fully
boxed frame rails, two C-channel sections are overlapped—essentially, welding a frame
inside a frame—to form a box that resists sagging and bending.
When properly equipped; includes weight of the vehicle and trailer combination, including the weight of the driver, passengers, fuel, optional
equipment and cargo in the vehicle and trailer. 2Maximum payload capacity includes weight of driver, passengers, optional equipment and cargo.
Capacities and weight ratings are dependent upon model, engine, transmission and GVWR combinations. See your GMC dealer for details.

Adding a plow to Sierra HD is easy. Ask your dealer for the available Snow Plow
Prep Package, and your truck will be prepared for most current hydraulic snow
plows. It upgrades the front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) to 6000 lbs3
on diesel-equipped models, while the torsion-bar front suspension allows you
to make seasonal ride-height adjustments in minutes, with a single wrench.

A diesel that starts easily in Arctic-like weather? It’s all in a cold day’s
work for the Duramax Diesel 6.6L V-8 Turbo. With an advanced DirectInjection (DI) fuel system, the Duramax injectors pressurize fuel up to
30,000 psi. That helps to turn cold, heavy diesel fuel into an ultra-fine
mist that burns quickly and easily, to give you fast starts, quieter operation
and lower emissions than the previous model.

To help reduce carbon dioxide emissions, the Duramax Diesel 6.6L V-8 Turbo
can run on B20 biodiesel, a mixture of 20 percent biodiesel produced from
domestic renewable resources, and 80 percent petroleum diesel.
Based on GM testing.

ABSOLUTE POWER IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
How you apply power is just as important as how much power you have. So, the
standard 6.0L Vortec VVT V-8 delivers torque and horsepower across a wide RPM range.
Matched with the Hydramatic 6L90-E, it gives the driver smooth and progressive
response for effortless driving, trailering or hauling.
I mpr o v ed l o w - speed resp o nse
The 6.0L Vortec VVT V-8 has a revised camshaft profile that gives you a deep reserve
of low-end torque. It’s most helpful in driving situations where you need to apply
power gently and progressively, such as trailering heavy objects, backing up to attach
a trailer or maneuvering in tight spaces.
ALL POWER AND NO COMPROMISE
Variable Valve Timing (VVT) changes when and how intake and exhaust valves open
and close. This changes engine performance from a smooth and quiet-idling dynamo
to a bold, aggressive, high-performance V-8 at full throttle. This helps to provide
you with ample reserve power at virtually every speed, so you can approach challenging
trailering or load-carrying situations with confidence.

the story begins at the end of the road.
The best way to appreciate the engineering that went into the new
Sierra HD suspension is when the road is at its worst, or when there
is no road at all. With a redesigned fully independent torsion-bar
front suspension on every model, and a completely revised rear
suspension, Sierra HD removes the compromise between ride
comfort and load capacity, so you can trailer or haul heavy loads
with a comfortable margin of control.
INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION
All Sierra HD models have a new Independent Front Suspension
(IFS), designed for the constant punishment of heavy-duty use.
Built extra-strong from extreme-duty components, it gives both a
smoother ride than conventional beam-axle suspensions and up
to a 6000 lb front axle GAWR1 that is unsurpassed by competitive
HD models.

Vibrations are the enemy

Sierra HD Extended

are cushioned at the

The more load your HD takes, the more its springs step up to the
challenge. New rear leaf springs are 3 inches wide —two-stage for
2500 models, and three-stage for 3500 models.
Capacities and weight ratings are dependent upon model, engine, transmission and GVWR combinations.

one case where more weight is a good thing.
The new Sierra HD is built with the power and capacity to give you significantly improved trailering capability. Virtually every aspect was rethought or
reinforced for heavy loads and high Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (GVWRs).
More important is the sense of control that comes from knowing GMC has
already anticipated your task and built accordingly.

We said HD, and we mean it. Sierra HD offers outstanding payload and

To help you choose the fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch that works best for
your needs, our engineers consulted with leading aftermarket hitch
manufacturers. Based on their input, we added new access holes to the
rear frame section to accept a wider variety of hitches. These holes also
help to preserve frame strength and save installation time.

Sierra HD’s braking system is much more than a pedal. It is a system of
control engineered to help keep you on your intended path, and maintain
your cool no matter how challenging the situation. Because, with a heavy
load behind you, you need to be ready for what’s ahead of you.
To get full braking force
as fast as possible in
urgent stops, all Sierra
HD SRW models feature
Intelligent Brake Assist.
If the system senses rapid
brake-pedal movement,
it automatically applies
full system pressure,
which can shorten
stopping distances.

a: “SMART” BRAKING POWER
E : s t a b ili t ra k
The new diesel exhaust brake is an innovative standard feature for Duramax
models. Unlike the traditional “on/off” diesel exhaust brakes, the driverselectable “smart” brake varies negative torque needed, based on the truck
load and grade. This helps reduce brake fade, extends brake life and gives
drivers plenty of confidence when hauling heavy loads downhill.
Standard on Sierra HD
SRW models, StabiliTrak
senses when your vehicle
is not adequately responding to your steering
inputs, then adjusts
engine speed and brake
pressure to any individual wheel to help
maintain traction and
steering control.

Automatic Grade Braking monitors vehicle speed, acceleration, engine
torque and brake pedal usage. Using this information, it detects when the
truck is on a downhill grade and the driver desires to slow the vehicle. Then
if necessary, the transmission downshifts to help hold the desired speed.

Always use safety belts and the correct restraint for your child’s age and size. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing
infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with a passenger air bag. See the Owner’s Manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information. 2Use only GM-approved tire and wheel
combinations. For approved tire and wheel combinations and other important information, go to gmaccessorieszone.com or see your dealer for details. 3When properly equipped; includes weight of vehicle, passengers,
cargo and equipment. 4Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution. 5Maximum payload capacity includes weight of driver, passengers, optional equipment and cargo. 6Maximum trailer
weight ratings are calculated assuming a base vehicle, except for any option(s) necessary to achieve the rating, plus driver. The weight of other optional equipment, passengers and cargo will reduce the
maximum trailer weight your vehicle can tow. See your GMC dealer for additional details. 7Capacities and weight ratings are dependent upon model, engine, transmission and GVWR combinations. See
your GMC dealer for details.

OnStar
OnStar is a core asset of your Sierra. Benefiting from more than a decade of innovative
development, it is both a highly advanced technology—fully integrated within the vehicle —
and a warm human service. Standard on most Sierra models are six months of the OnStar Directions
& Connections plan, including the convenience of Hands-Free Calling. It also includes Automatic
Crash Response (see page 19), Stolen Vehicle Assistance, link to Emergency Services, Roadside
Assistance, Remote Door Unlock, OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, Crisis Assist and Remote Horn and Lights.
OnStar services require vehicle electrical system (including battery), wireless service and GPS satellite
signals to be available and operating for features to function properly. OnStar acts as a link to existing emergency
service providers. Subscription Service Agreement required. Call 1-888-4ONSTAR (466-7827) or visit
onstar.com for OnStar’s Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy, coverage maps, details and system limitations.
Services vary with conditions.
Hands-Free Calling
OnStar Hands-Free Calling capability is built into your Sierra. It’s there when your cell phone is
unavailable, its battery is low, you can’t reach it easily or you left it home or in the office. Your HandsFree Calling system is the right choice whenever you need an easy way to make and receive calls—at the
touch of the phone icon on the rearview mirror or the steering-wheel-mounted controls shown on page 16.
Voice-activated dialing is convenient because you don’t have to dial when you are at the wheel. And
Hands-Free Calling is reliable because it’s specially designed for better reception and fewer dropped
calls in areas of limited cellular reception. You are invited to experience the benefits yourself with 30
Hands-Free Calling minutes—on OnStar—during the first two months you drive your Sierra, with no
strings attached.
OnStar turn-by-turn navigation
XM Radio
On all Sierra models except WT: XM Radio1 is standard with 3 trial months of service.
XM turns your drive on with commercial-free music channels from virtually every genre,
artist-dedicated channels, live performances and more. Tune in to live play-by-play from the biggest
sports, exclusive entertainment from top personalities, compelling talk, hilarious comedy, world-class
news, local traffic and weather and family-friendly programming. Everything worth listening to is now on XM.
Visit gm.xmradio.com for details.
XM NAVTraffic
Included with the available Touch-Screen Navigation System, XM NavTraffic2 enhances
Sierra’s GPS navigation system by showing real-time traffic data—while you’re driving.
Available in over 80 markets, XM NavTraffic displays construction, road closures and accidents so that you
can get to your destination faster, plus average traffic speed and estimated drive time in select markets.

Connections plan that adds innovative, easy-to-use Turn-by-Turn Navigation plus Information and
Convenience Services and Driving Directions. With Turn-by-Turn Navigation, you simply tell the OnStar
Advisor your intended destination, and directions will automatically be sent to your Sierra. If you drive
off-course, the system can reroute you to your intended destination. An automated voice then guides you
turn-by-turn until you arrive at your destination. Turn-by-Turn Navigation is further enhanced with eNAV,
allowing you to send MapQuest® directions directly to your vehicle. No need to print out directions; just
call them up with simple voice commands.
