2012 GMC Sierra
2012 GMC Sierra
The GMC Sierra's combination of workhorse ability and handsome design has always made it something of a gentleman's choice for a pickup truck, and it's no different this year. There are no major mechanical or styling changes for 2012, but the Sierra is still a solid competitor in the full-size pickup segment. The Sierra's base powerplant is a 4.3-liter V-6, but it is also available with a selection of V-8 engines, all of which can run on E85 fuel (except for the Hybrid). Those looking for better fuel economy can try the XFE (Xtra Fuel Economy) model, which gets 22 mpg on the highway thanks to a variety of minor tweaks, or they can opt for the Hybrid model, which uses GM's two-mode hybrid system to get 20/23 mpg city/highway. The Sierra can seat anywhere from two to six passengers and offer up to 75 cubic feet of bed space, depending on cab-size and bed-length specifications. With the enhanced trailering package, the Sierra can tow just under 11,000 pounds. If you like to be coddled while you work, go for the top-level Sierra Denali, which has heated and cooled seats, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, a rearview camera system, and numerous interior and exterior upgrades that turn this truck from a workhorse to a show horse.
2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Front Three Quarter 1
The current-generation Chevrolet Silverado (and GMC Sierra) full-size pickups have been on the market since 2007, so it's unsurprising that General Motors has begun work on the next-generation trucks. Lucky for us, our spy photographer managed to catch copies of the both the Silverado 1500 and HD clad in camouflage out testing.
2013 GMC Sierra Heritage Edition Front View
GMC spent most of its first 100 years building workhorses of industry, military, and public transportation. How?s the brand celebrating its next 100 years? By building some gussied-up 2012 Sierra, Yukon, and Yukon XL models, of course. The new package is called the Heritage Edition, and as noted above, is only available on the brand?s full-size pickup and SUV models. Why those three? Simple: GMC says they're its longest-running nameplates (and their history grows longer yet when you consider the Yukon and Yukon XL were once known as the Jimmy and Suburban, respectively). Like many other anniversary-edition or centennial-grade models -- including those produced by the now-defunct Oldsmobile brand -- the Heritage Edition models primarily mix a few cosmetic tweaks with some additional content. Available only on the high-grade SLT trim level, the Heritage Edition treatment adds embroidered front floor mats and head rests, and exterior emblems sporting the original GMC script logo first applied in 1912. Buyers have three exterior paint colors to choose from: Onyx Black is available at no extra cost, but the new Heritage Blue runs an extra $195, while the sparkly White Diamond tri-coat carries a $995 premium. On Sierra 1500 models, the Heritage Edition also lumps in a sizable amount of optional equipment, including 20-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels; a rear-view camera; and a convenience package, which adds rear park assist, adjustable pedals, and an easy-lift tailgate. Yukon and Yukon XL models don't receive quite as much (the 20-inch rims, we're told, are optional), but they do receive the SLT-2 Equipment Package, which throws in 10-way power front seats with memory function, heated second-row seating with a power-fold function, a power liftgate, and heated side mirrors. How much do you have to pay to help celebrate GMC's history? That all depends on the model. Barring any paint options, the Heritage Edition option adds $2645 to a 2012 Sierra SLT pickup. Seeing as adding the 20-inch wheels, convenience package, and rear-view camera would normally increase the window sticker by $1995, that amounts to a $650 premium for some new emblems and embroidery. GMC notes the Heritage Edition package costs $1970 on the Yukon and Yukon XL 1/2-ton model, but costs $1820 on the 3/4-ton Yukon XL. Since the SLT-2 equipment group usually costs $1545 on 1/2-ton models and $1395 on the 3/4-ton truck, the Heritage Package is about $425 more expensive across the board. If tipping your hat to the Grabowsky brothers is worth the extra cash, look for all three Heritage Edition models to arrive at GMC dealers in short order. Source: GMC
2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Bi Fuel Front Three Quarter
Compressed natural gas (CNG) has long been popular with commercial feet owners, but the lack of a widespread refueling infrastructure in the U.S. poses some headaches. General Motors hopes a new bi-fuel option for the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks may help fill that void. This isn't General Motors' first full-size pickup that's capable of running on both CNG and gasoline (such a vehicle was offered in the late 1990s), but it is the first developed from the company's current GMT900 range of trucks. The bi-fuel option modifies the existing 6.0-liter V-8 engine so that it can run on CNG. According to GM, the transition from gasoline to CNG is seamless, and using both fuels allows a Silverado/ Sierra 2500 HD to have a total range of about 650 miles. Ordering a bi-fuel Silverado and Sierra is a lot like ordering any other full-size General Motors pickup, although some options are restricted. All Bi-fuel trucks will be extended cab models equipped with the 6.0-liter V-8 and a six-speed automatic transmission. Customers will be able to specify two- or four-wheel drive, 2500 or 3500 model range, and bed length. Seeing as the CNG tanks eat up a bit of cargo space within the bed, we'd recommend opting for the longer eight-foot bed. All 2013 bi-fuel Silverado and Sierra models will be built within GM's assembly plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but the addition of the CNG fueling system will be performed off-site by a tier-one supplier. Despite this, GM says the completed vehicle -- CNG system and all -- will be covered by the standard 3-year/36,000-mile warranty, along with its 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Source: GM
