Powertrains and performance
Choose between two bold engines on the 2019 GMC Sierra 3500HD. This powerhouse comes standard with the Vortec® 6.0L V8, which puts out 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a heavy-duty six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. For even more muscle, choose the 6.6-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel V8 paired to an Allison® 1000 six-speed transmission. This dynamo delivers 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque — and the capability to tow up to 23,300 pounds. When you choose the Duramax® Diesel engine, you’ll also receive the Diesel Hood Scoop Induction System, which cools the engine to maximize horsepower — and lends a powerful look to the Sierra’s front end.
The Sierra 3500HD is more than a workhorse — it offers comfort and convenience alongside capability. At the base trim level, you’ll enjoy the practicality of its folding rear bench seats, easy-to-clean interior, and climate control system. Upgrade for luxuries like leather-appointed, climate-controlled front seats, a leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel and handy storage solutions. To give your Sierra 3500 HD a stylish interior touch, opt for the Spice Red accent stitching and soft-touch instrument panel with aluminum trim. Best yet, despite all of its power, the Sierra 3500 boasts a quiet interior, thanks to its triple-sealed doors, along with its hydraulic engine and body mounts that minimize road vibration.
Take control with the GMC Sierra 3500HD’s standard 7-inch diagonal touch-screen infotainment system and Bluetooth® phone capabilities. Upgrade to enjoy the convenience and security of OnStar®, GMC Connected Services, the theft-deterring unauthorized entry system and a built-in navigation system. Stay connected on the job when you choose upgrades like a wireless charging station, a 110-volt auxiliary power outlet and the in-vehicle 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot. You can even opt for a number of cutting-edge driver-assist systems, including Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
The GMC Sierra 3500HD is a versatile powerhouse. Whether you’re on the job site or hauling a trailer for your next great adventure, this dynamic truck has what it takes to get the job done right.
