If you need a pickup truck that can pull daunting loads, look to the 2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD. The Sierra 2500HD also impresses with its robust payload capability and reasonably smooth ride quality.
The 2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD is a full-size heavy-duty truck that can be configured to seat up to six passengers, and it’s available with gas and diesel powertrains. Two cargo-bed sizes and two cab styles are offered. Buyers can choose from base, SLE, SLT and Denali trim levels, and both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are offered.
For 2019, GMC has discontinued the Sierra 2500HD’s regular-cab body style. Also, the short-bed double-cab model has been dropped from the lineup.
Like many trucks, the 2019 Sierra 2500HD has a blocky, solid-looking exterior design. Its broad grille and squarish headlights inspire confidence, and its level beltline and squared-off wheel wells give it a capable, dependable look. Two body styles are offered: Double Cab (extended cab) and crew cab. Buyers can choose between a 6-foot-6-inch short bed and an 8-foot long bed.
With the base work truck, the list of standard features includes chrome front and rear bumpers, a capless fuel-fill system, black exterior door handles, daytime running lights, xenon projector-beam headlights, 17-inch wheels and an EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate that makes it simpler to load items into the cargo bed.
Optional equipment includes spray-on bed liner, an underbody shield, body-colored front and rear bumpers, chrome or body-colored exterior door handles, front fog lights, LED cargo-box lighting, chrome or body-colored bodyside molding, 18- or 20-inch wheels and heated power-adjustable side mirrors with an auto-dimming capability.
The Sierra 2500HD comes with a comfortable and reasonably attractive interior. Both extended-cab and crew-cab models can be configured to seat five or six passengers. With either body style, there’s enough room to easily accommodate taller passengers.
Standard equipment includes air conditioning, power door locks and a tilt-only steering column. Optional equipment includes power windows, a power sunroof, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, leather seating, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, power-adjustable pedals and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
GMC’s Sierra 2500HD offers the prodigious power shoppers expect from a heavy-duty pickup, and it teams this with handling that’s relatively smooth and agreeable. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is available.
Two engines are offered. The first is a 6.0-liter V8 good for 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. There’s also a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8, and it provides 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. Each of these engines is governed by its own six-speed automatic transmission.
The Sierra 2500HD can handle a payload of up to 3,233 pounds, and it’s capable of towing up to 15,400 pounds. Since the EPA doesn’t calculate fuel economy ratings for heavy-duty trucks, no mileage estimates are available.
The Sierra 2500HD is available with a respectable range of tech amenities. Base models come with a 7-inch touchscreen, an infotainment system, USB ports, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, an auxiliary audio input jack, Pandora internet radio, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, voice recognition, a rearview camera, a six-speaker sound system and a Teen Driver feature that allows parents to set parameters for young drivers.
Options include wireless device charging, a lane-departure warning system, forward collision alert, front and rear parking sensors, an 8-inch touchscreen, HD and satellite radio, a CD/MP3 player, a premium Bose stereo, a rear-seat DVD/Blu-Ray player, navigation and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

by Melissa on December 19, 2019
Best truck we have ever owned
"We absolutely love this truck! It has many features that we enjoy and is a very comfortable truck to ride in with lots of space! We have had other trucks in the past, but this is the best one hands down."
The custom stitching in the leather seats.
Love the white frost pearl color and the three step tiered hood.
Rides better than any other truck and is super comfortable.
PLENTY of space for everyone!
Well worth the money spent. This is something we should have purchased years ago.
