SIERRA THE NAME YOU CAN COUNT ON
There's only one full-size pickup that's engineered and built to Professional Grade specifications : GMC Sierra. Year in and year out, they perform capably and reliably in the toughest tests you put them through. That's due to the core strength of its three-piece modular frame and the durable power of its VortecTM engine lineup. It enables you to match your power to your specific demands – all the way up to a 403 hp 6.2L V8. Along the way, Sierra also sets the pace in fuel efficiency, with VortecTM V8 fuel consumption ratings that easily beat Ford F-150's V8. And you can build your Sierra your way, with a wide range of configurations, body styles, box lengths and trim levels. Count on it. The 2013 GMC Sierra 1500.
VORTECTM POWER TO SPARE
VortecTM engines are known both for their efficient power generation and their proven reliability. The name VortecTM refers to the vortex technology that swirls and tumbles incoming air and fuel for optimum power and response. The Sierra 1500 VortecTM engine lineup includes everything from a frugal 4.3L V6 to a 6.2L V8 that pumps out 403 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque.
ENGINE MANAGEMENT - THE KEY TO FUEL EFFICIENCY
The VortecTM 5.3L V8 features Active Fuel Management® that shuts down four of eight cylinders when power demands are low. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) adjusts valve open and close timing, delivering near-peak torque across the entire range of engine speeds. Sierra XFE achieves 13.7 L/100 km city and 9.1 L/100 km highway ratings. That's significantly better than the comparable Ford F-150 V8-powered pickup.
PART ELECTRIC, PART GAS, ALL PROFESSIONAL GRADE
The Two-Mode Hybrid System is the only hybrid powertrain technology available in the full-size pickup class. It can run on VortecTM V8 gasoline power alone, electric power alone, or a combination of the two. The system includes a 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System (ESS), an Electronically Variable Transmission (EVT) and regenerative braking. They help Sierra Hybrid achieve a city rating of 10.1 L/100 km - less than the Toyota Camry V6 and the Ford Fusion V6. Yet the Sierra Hybrid offers Professional Grade capability, with a maximum trailering capacity of 2,767 kg (6,100 lb).
