2014 GMC Sierra Makes Special Debut in Detroit




The 2014 GMC Sierra made a special debut in Detroit, and so far truck enthusiasts are applauding the newest addition to GMC’s lineup.

2014 GMC Sierra gets 3 New Engines

The 2014 GMC Sierra will be offered with 3 engines, a 4.3 liter V6 and two V8s: a 5.3 and a 6.2 liter. The engines, dubbed EcoTec3, are expected to give significant boosts to horsepower, torque, and fuel efficiency.

Although GM has not yet released official performance data for the new engines, experts are the expecting the 6.2L V8 to exceed 400 horsepower.

The engines will be all aluminum and have the ability to automatically dial-down to four active cylinders. This will reduce fuel consumption when power demands are lower, such as cruising down the highway with little or no towing pull.

Take a look at the universal features of all three new engines:

  • High compression overhead valves
  • Direct fuel injection
  • Variable cam timing
  • Cylinder deactivation
  • Six speed transmission

“We believe these are the most technologically advanced engines ever offered in light-duty pickups, and they are 100% truck”, said GM’s small block chief engineer Jordan Lee.

GM North America President Mark Ruess also touted the 2014 GMC Sierra’s sophisticated capabilities: “These will be the most technologically advanced engines offered in any light-duty pickup,” he said, adding “these are the most refined, best-engineered pickups ever”.

The Sierra also received upgrades to the interior, with an improved center-stack and modernized panel instruments.
