2014 GMC Sierra Release Date front three quarter 2014 GMC Sierra Release Date

The following is an explanation of 2014 GMC Sierra Redesign.

May said there is almost no other to 2014 GMC Sierra was redesigned from his predecessor 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado klonnya, but better than the Silverado knockoffs. Prior to their public unveiling in December, GM promised more differentiation between the two models for 2014. Now that we’ve seen them, we can say that statement is true, to an extent. But the 2014 Sierra is still clearly related to its predecessor 2012 GMC Sierra 1500, as well as its bowtie brother.

From some people, this looks sweet and previously came away from 2004-2006 Chevy Silverado-they are considered to be the ugliest truck ever made. And in the end, now that GM has redesigned the Interior, then get the correct results and looks perfect.

If you think you know what to expect from the interior of the GMC Sierra, 2014 Chris Hilts-creative interior design Manager, has a surprise for you. Hilts know what truck owners want, because she has had nine vehicles and eight of them are cars trucks. With the comfort, security, and space technology all play an important role in the interior of Sierra, maybe you don’t know what you expect. See and watch the video below to find out some of the premium materials and attention to every detail you will find the charming in the redesigned Sierra.

Interior

Take one look inside the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra and you’ll see clearly why this is the new standard in truck interiors. Designed to deliver style and substance, the Sierra’s interior brings comfort, refinement and convenience to a whole new level.

In addition to all-new design and technology, the 2014 Sierra boasts the longest list of standard features ever for a full-size GMC pickup. From connectivity solutions, to a standard tie-down system in the rear, to the segment’s only standard projector beam headlamps, many premium features are found on each and every all-new Sierra.

Then, here is the Performance of the 2014 GMC Sierra

Sierra‚ all-new EcoTec3 engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and are based on 50+ years of proven small-block performance. New technologies make each of those engines more powerful and more efficient than ever.

New EcoTec3 Engine

GMC Sierra’s engine portfolio is updated for 2014 with the goal of increased in power, torque and fuel efficiency across the board. There will be a 4.3L V-6, a 5.3L V-8 and a 6.2L V-8 offered, all from a shared EcoTec3 engine family. Each engine features standard direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management, which means they seamlessly switch to run on four cylinders during light-load driving to save fuel. Some observers may see the introduction of an all-new pushrod V-6 in this day and age as laughably retrograde or backwards, but GM saw some compelling reasons to stick with the tried-and-true OHV layout for the base engine, as opposed to adopting the 3.6-liter “high-feature” DOHC V-6 for truck duty.

In a further vote of confidence in its entry-level mill, the V-6 is available for the first time in a crew or extended-cab 4×4 configuration.

The base V-6 also shares its high 11:1 compression ratio with the new fifth-generation 5.3-liter V-8. The optional 6.2-liter V-8 gets a slightly higher 11.5:1 compression optimized for premium fuel. In percentage terms, we’re expecting the biggest gains for the V-6, since it was based on the generation-older original small-block architecture, rather than the newer LS1 (Gen III and IV) engines. We’re confidently predicting output levels in the ballpark of 280 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque for the V-6. Guesses for the 5.3 and 6.2 are a little more speculative, but we’re going with between 355-375 hp and 365-385 lb-ft for the 5.3, and 430-450 hp and around 450 lb-ft of torque on the 6.2.

Sierra owners expect outstanding power when trailering and hauling, and excellent efficiency when highway cruising or commuting to work. Sierra is engineered to meet these expectations. All three of Sierra’s engines feature three sophisticated technologies that work together to optimize power and efficiency:

  • Direct Injection injects gasoline directly into the combustion chamber of the cylinder and allows for the use of a higher compression ratio. This technology also improves torque, power and efficiency.
  • Active Fuel Management senses load and power demand, then activates or deactivates four of the engines eight cylinders (2 cylinders on V6) to meet driving conditions.
  • Variable Valve Timing allows for different valve timing at different engine RPM and operating conditions to maximize performance.

Safety

As for the salvation of the driver, the following are noteworthy:
The 2014 Sierra’s state-of-the-art safety and driver alert technologies provide peace of mind and help prepare you for the unexpected. Sierra’s advanced technologies pair intelligent engineering with driver-centric safety, using cameras or ultrasonic sensors to watch where you might not be looking. These available technologies include:

  • Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. Sierra is the first pickup to offer this technology, which lets you know when you are approaching another vehicle too quickly or when you‚ left your driving lane.

Safe & Connected: OnStar

Available on most Sierra models is a 6-month trial subscription to the OnStar4 Directions & Connections Plan. The plan includes:

  • Automatic Crash Response
  • Turn-by-turn Navigation
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Emergency Services Link
  • Remote Door Unlock
