2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel, Redesign, Towing Capacity, & Specs. The all-new 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD will hit the dealerships later this year. The famous truck will gain various refreshments, but mostly on the inside. However, the exterior design will also introduce a couple of minor tweaks. Sierra HD is an impressive lineup of heavy-duty trucks. Unlike Ford’s or Ram’s lineup, Sierra puts more focus on luxury.
Of course, performances are great but not as good as some other established models in the segment. Overall, Sierra 2500 looks very modern and handsome. The interior is full and very premium of high-tech amenities. Sierra 2500HD might be the answer you are looking for if you are looking for luxury.
Power, Towing Capacity
The forthcoming 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD will once again introduce two engine options. The standard 6.6-liter V8 gasoline engine develops 400 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission comes as standard, just like the rear-wheel-drive system. A 6.6-liter V8 Duramax diesel is an optional powertrain.
Diesel is capable of producing 445 hp and up to 910 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, diesel comes with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission. When using a gasoline engine, all-wheel-drive is optional and Sierra 2500HD can tow up to 18,500 pounds. On the other hand, diesel output provides 35,000 pounds of towing capacity.
2023 Sierra 2500HD Gets Minor Facelift
The upcoming 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD will introduce minor exterior improvements. For a start, this truck comes with a premium design and a very recognizable appearance. The front fascia is dominated by a familiar emblazoned grille and prominent scoops. Sierra 2500HD offers standard LED c-shaped headlights and updated daytime running lights.
All trim levels are looking premium, but the range-topping Denali trim is the most luxurious one. Sierra 2500HD Denali offers more chrome details, larger wheels, power-operated features, and various high-gloss black accents. As for the changes, we expect to see slightly larger exterior features and bolder bumpers. Besides that, the truck’s appearance remains intact.
Premium Interior Continues With the Updates
What separates the 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD from the rest of the segment is its impressive interior design. Some manufacturers are focused on the performances or wild exterior design. Sierra is known for its premium interior design. Base trim level offers a standard 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, built-in navigation, and premium Bose sound system.
Upper trim levels are available with the rear-seat entertainment system, leather upholstery, larger displays, and additional safety aids. The infotainment system will be updated and we expect to see even more driver-assistance. The highlight of the 2023 Sierra could be the brand-new Super Cruise system. However, this is not official yet.
2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD Release Date, Price
In terms of price, the new 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD will now cost around $38,000. On the other hand, the range-topping Sierra Denali trim will cost around $60,000. Denali is the most luxurious trim you can get and it is probably the best model in the segment. GMC will launch its new heavy-duty lineup later this year, in the third quarter of 2021.
