The GMC 2500 has also always featured the latest in General Motors technology, from key information on such things as trailering, key driver assistance features to make driving your truck safe, and an infotainment system that is interactive and fun to use for everyone riding along with you.
At Rick Hendrick Buick GMC of Duluth, we offer a great inventory of new and used trucks, including the GMC Sierra 2500 HD, so you will have no trouble finding the vehicle that works best for you. It is this ability to find you the model, trim, and features that you desire that has worked to make us your used GMC 2500 truck dealer.
The GMC Sierra 2500 HD has staked out its place as one of the most versatile heavy-duty trucks available today. Sure, other trucks can also tow heavy trailers and haul large cargo loads like the GMC 2500 HD. But few can rival the GMC 2500 HD for its abilities on and off the road, as well as the attention to detail that you will find inside the roomy cab.
General Motors offers the GMC Sierra 2500 HD in a number of different trims, with two different engines and three different cab designs. Each driver gets a choice of a gas engine or a Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8. If you choose the conventional gas engine, you can carry heavier loads in your truck’s payload bed. Opting for the available Duramax Turbo-Diesel can help you tow some of your biggest trailers. You also get a choice of rear-wheel drive for better trailering capability or four-wheel drive for improved traction.
You can choose one of three cab styles on your GMC Sierra 2500 HD. The regular cab is great if you plan to use your truck for mainly commercial purposes. This provides a two-door cab with either a bench or bucket seats. This has less weight than either of the other two designs, allowing you to improve the towing and payload capability of your truck. The GMC Sierra 2500 HD also comes with two different four-door cabs with room for up to six passengers. The double cab is a solid choice for drivers who need room for extra passengers, while the crew cab is ideal for the family driver as it provides an incredible amount of legroom for passengers riding in the rear row of seats.
The GMC Sierra 2500 HD comes in a number of different great trim levels. Among these are the AT4 and the Denali. The AT4 model is off-road ready with specialized gear that can help you out when you’re out on the trail. If you love luxury, then the Denali trim is ideal for you, with a rugged exterior that gives way to a very stylish interior featuring perforated leather seating surfaces. Each of these models carries on a tradition that began at GMC over four decades ago with the introduction of the first Sierra truck models.
The name Sierra actually began life as a top trim level, not a vehicle itself. Back in the day, GMC used the name Sierra to let drivers know that they were getting the ultimate in performance and craft in their pickup trucks. The name proved so successful that GMC decided to call its new truck the Sierra when it was introduced in 1988. This included the GMC 2500 HD, a heavy-duty truck with a powerful V8 engine designed to give drivers an unmatched capability in their trucks. This first-generation GMC 2500 HD also proved the longest, running from 1988 to 2002, giving drivers over a decade of excellent pickup models.
The second generation of GMC 2500 HD trucks came out in 2003, at the same time that General Motors was giving its full-size Sierra 1500 a mid-generation facelift. With this new generation came a new opportunity for drivers to choose other engines for their heavy-duty trucks. GMC made the Sierra 2500 HD available with optional 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 and 8.1-liter V8 gas engines. While the larger V8 gas engine eventually fell victim to rising gas prices, the Turbo-Diesel was a major hit that has continued to be offered to the present day.
The 2007 model year signaled a time for a new generation of the GMC Sierra 2500 HD. This third-generation model was given a more pronounced and aggressive front grille while maintaining the truck’s exceptional towing and hauling capabilities. This is why General Motors left the truck largely unchanged for the next decade, offering the Sierra 2500 HD with a choice of a 6.0-liter V8 gas or FlexFuel engine or a 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel.
General Motors introduced the fourth generation GMC 2500 HD in time for the 2015 model year, increasing the aggressive looks pioneered in the prior generation’s model while adding slight adjustments to make the truck more aerodynamic. The two engines were carried over from the prior year with an experiment in CNG and LNG capabilities in an effort to improve fuel economy on the Sierra 2500 HD. While these were eventually dropped, the truck itself continued to be an industry leader among heavy-duty pickup models.
The current fifth generation GMC 2500 HD debuted in time for the 2020 model year, showing that the future is now for GMC trucks. This is the boldest-looking truck ever produced by GMC. One of the most pronounced changes is a grille design that is unlike any ever produced by this automaker. In addition, the GMC 2500 HD was given a new 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that outperforms any gas engine ever offered on this truck. In addition, the Turbo-Diesel was now paired with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission, improving performance over the prior models with their 6-speed automatic transmissions.
In all, drivers have been given five generations of powerful GMC 2500 HD trucks. Each one shows the versatility and power afforded by these heavy-duty pickups.
