Overview

What's New in the 2013 GMC Sierra 2500?

A bi-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) 6.0-liter V8 engine is now available on the 2500 HD Extended Cab. Powertrain grade braking on the 6.0-liter powertrain can now operate in normal mode. Previously, engine braking was only available when tow/haul mode was engaged.

Which Sierra 2500 is the Best?

With so many trims and configurations, it is impossible to say which model is the overall favorite. Much depends on your needs. If you're not a site manager or oil rig crew, and if you just need a big truck for towing a vacation or horse trailer, the Sierra HD Denali will most likely please you. Those looking for a workhorse should consider the 2500/3500 Work Truck, while those needing both a work station and a family hauler will likely find the 2500 SLE strikes a nice balance between features and price.

Competition

2013 GMC Sierra 2500 vs the competition

RAM 2500/3500 HD -- The RAM HD out-muscles and out-tows the Sierra, in some cases by as much as 7,000 pounds. The RAM's Hemi V8 offers more horsepower and torque than the Sierra, but the RAM's ride can be rough and its long-term resale figures are not as strong.

Ford F250/F350 -- Ford's heavy-duty trucks offer more horsepower and torque, more trim and cab options (such as the King Ranch and Platinum trims) and more sophisticated audio and infotainment systems (SYNC).
