2013 GMC Sierra

New For 2013

The Sierra adds Sonoma red metallic and heritage blue metallic paint as options on non-Denali models. The 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter models with the six-speed automatic gain automatic engine braking even when the truck is not in tow/haul mode.

Overview

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. There are no major mechanical changes for 2013, but the Sierra, a corporate sibling of the Chevrolet Silverado, 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). Buyers looking for better fuel economy can try the XFE (Xtra Fuel Economy) model that 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 offers 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 and heated steering wheel, a rearview camera, and numerous interior and exterior upgrades that turn this truck from a workhorse to a show horse.

Safety

StabiliTrak traction and stability control, which also features hill-start assist, rollover mitigation, and trailer-sway control, is standard. Front, side, and side curtain air bags are standard, as is ABS.

2014 GMC Sierra Front Three Quarters
The 2014 GMC Sierra full-size truck has debuted alongside the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, and we're sure the two designs have fueled the ongoing debate on whether the GMC truck is sufficiently differentiated from the Chevrolet. In a new video, GMC executive design director Ken Parkinson talks about the new Sierra inside and out, detailing why certain design details appear on the truck. Below that, we've also featured the official Silverado and Sierra debut video.
2013 Chevrolet Silverado Bi Fuel Rear
Natural gas has been getting a lot of attention lately as an alternative fuel that can reduce dependency on imported oil, but it's been natural gas' low price per gallon equivalent that's gotten the attention of a lot of fleets as well as retail customers. General Motors just increased the number of CNG models available on the market by two, with production of the bi-fuel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 HD kicking off in Fort Wayne, Indiana. GM claims a highest-in-class bi-fuel range of 650 miles for the trucks.

Summary
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado HD, Silverado LD, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Savana, Sierra HD, Sierra LD, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles, manufactured between November 7, 2012, through December 18, 2012, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect", and FMVSS No. 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention." The vehicles may have been built with a fractured park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly.
Consequences
As a result, the vehicle may shift from Park with the ignition key removed or the ignition key in the OFF position. The vehicle may also shift out of Park without application of the brake pedal while the key is off. Either of these scenarios may cause the vehicle to roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible vehicle crash and/or injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on January 21, 2013. Chevrolet owners may call 1-800-630-2438. Cadillac owners may call 1-866-982-2339. GMC owners may call 1-866-996-9463.
