People turn to heavy-duty trucks for their immense towing capabilities, and this is one area in which the 2016 GMC Sierra 2500HD excels. A civilized ride quality is also part of the package, along with a generous array of technology features.
GMC’s Sierra 2500HD is a full-size heavy-duty pickup that seats up to six people, and it gives buyers a choice of three cab styles and two bed lengths. Both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available, and the Sierra 2500HD is sold in base, SLE, SLT and Denali trims.
For 2016, the Sierra 2500HD upgrades its infotainment system and adds xenon headlights as standard equipment on all models. Also, wireless phone charging and a remote locking tailgate are now available.
The 2016 GMC Sierra 2500HD’s sheet metal gives the truck a powerful, capable look. A chiseled hood and a bold vertical grille stand out at the front, while the side view shows off angular wheel arches. The Sierra 2500HD is available with either an 8-foot or 6.5-foot cargo bed, and it’s sold in regular-cab, double-cab and crew-cab body styles.
Base models are equipped with chrome front and rear bumpers, HID headlights, daytime running lights, cargo-area lamps, 17-inch wheels and a step that’s integrated into the rear bumper. The range of available equipment includes spray-on bedliner, body-colored front and rear bumpers, front fog lamps, a power sunroof, LED lighting for the cargo box, heated power-folding side mirrors and 18- or 20-inch wheels.
Echoing the design themes of the Sierra 2500HD’s striking grille, a prominent center stack dominates in the cabin. It creates a cockpit-style feel for the driver, since the instrument panel is set back in comparison. Regular-cab models can be configured to seat two or three passengers, while double-cab and crew-cab models can be configured seat five or six. Base models come with spartan cabins, but the interior of the top-trim Denali is plush and luxurious.
Base models are equipped with air conditioning, power door locks and a tilt-adjustable steering column. The list of available features includes a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, dual-zone automatic climate control, power windows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable pedals, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery and a 12-way power-adjustable front row.
