gm-trucks

Following a recent 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for the 2014 Buick LaCrosse, General Motors has yet again scored another win (or two). GM trucks have officially taken the safety lead. The all-new 2014 GMC Sierra and the 2014 Chevy Silverado recently earned 5-Star Overall Vehicle Scores for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Both trucks scored big on their New Car Assessment Program.

All cab configurations for the Silverado and Sierra each have the highest possible Overall Vehicle Score under their belt, making them the first pickup trucks to win these safety scores since the requirements were made more difficult to achieve (in 2011). Regardless, we couldn’t be prouder of our GM trucks.

With the power you want to finish your toughest job comes safety features you need to stay secure in your truck. Just a few of the safety features you’ll find in the Silverado and Sierra include:

    • Lane Departure Warning
    • Steel frames throughout
    • Standard lap belt pretensioners
    • Four-wheel antilock disc brakes
    • Available OnStar services and capabilities
    • Six standard air bags with a 360-degree sensor system

If you’re looking for one of the most fuel-efficient pickup trucks out there, look no further than the 2014 GMC Sierra! With 24 miles per gallon and a standard 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 engine, this pickup cannot be beat. It is absolutely the class leader in fuel efficiency and style. And, to top it all off, the Sierra recently ranked highest among large light-duty pickups in the 2013 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.

EPA highway estimates for the 2014 GMC Sierra are strongly competitive with that of the Ram HFE. The Sierra offers 22 miles per gallon for 4×4 models and 24 miles per gallon for 2WD models. That’s among the best of any full-size pickup.

The strong EcoTec3 engine technology is what helps this truck achieve such efficiency. It is encompassed with direct fuel injection, variable valve timing, and Active Fuel Management technology all to help the truck save fuel while saving you big bucks at the pump. You can’t find that kind of advanced technology just anywhere. The Sierra also features 285 horsepower with 305 ft-lb. of torque. Find out more about the 2014 Sierra from GMC.
