2017 Sierra HD – Last year, GMC gave some updates on the exterior and interior to its Sierra truck family. This year, we can expect the arrival of new Sierra for the 2017 model year with a mid-cycle refresh.
GMC Sierra family consists of various models with their own specification. For starters, you should know that the HD is an initial for “Heavy Duty.” This alone will make you think about its powerful ability in assisting you to complete your job.
There are two trims of pickup truck in Sierra HD lineup. These trucks all have a professional grade and they are Sierra 2500HD and Sierra 3500HD. A Sierra Denali HD is the range topping model for each trim. We’d like to remind you that we’ve had a coverage on GMC Denali last month that you can read here.
2017 Sierra HD Update
Some observers expect that the update will comprise reengineering, where a new platform is implemented to achieve a firmer truck with improved durability. The powertrain might be reengineered and some equipment will be rearranged.
2017 Sierra HD Exterior Design
We believe you’re agree that its exterior design reflects its strength and capability. The front part has a large, angular grille that are flanked by squared headlights. The GMC insignia embossed in bold, capital letters on the grille, mud protector, squared fog lights, squared bumper and fenders, and large wheels make this vehicle even more masculine. Viewed from any angle, this truck won’t fail to give us its manly, powerful impression. You can choose the cab you like: regular, double, or crew cab.
