Overview

What's New in the 2016 GMC Sierra 2500?

After a full redesign last year, the Sierra 2500HD makes only minor changes for 2016, including a new wireless device charging system, HD Radio and a revised IntelliLink infotainment system. 

Which Sierra 2500 is the Best?

Because the Sierra 2500HD is offered in so many trim levels and configurations, it's impossible to recommend one that stands above all others. Instead, we think you should choose the pickup that best suits your needs whether it's a high-end Denali model for shoppers who want luxury, or a base-level Sierra equipped with the 6.6-liter turbodiesel engine for drivers who want a no-frills work truck that will tirelessly deliver excellent performance on the job site. Find a GMC Sierra 2500HD for sale

 

How Much Does a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 Cost?

The GMC Sierra HD comes in a wide variety of trim levels and body styles. In addition to choosing an engine, drivers can pick between regular cab, extended cab and crew cab. Drivers can also choose from regular or long beds and 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. Shoppers with major truck needs can even add dually wheels for excess payload capacity.

As for trim levels, the Sierra starts with a base model simply called the Sierra ($34,700). It's mainly designed for no-frills use on the jobsite, and it includes few features beyond an AM/FM stereo with a 4.2-inch display screen, vinyl seating and air conditioning. Base-level Sierra models don't even include keyless entry or power mirrors as standard equipment.

Next up is the Sierra SLE ($40,000), which adds all the creature comforts not found on the base model. Such items include power accessories, a backup camera, tinted glass and alloy wheels, along with GMC's IntelliLink infotainment system, a CD player, a satellite radio and OnStar.

Above the SLE is the upscale SLT ($47,100), which offers dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery with heated front seats, a backup camera, larger wheels, an automatic locking rear differential, power-folding mirrors, chrome interior and exterior trim and fog lights.

Topping the range is the pricey Sierra Denali ($55,800), which adds luxury carlike features ranging from cooled seats to a heated steering wheel, a navigation system and a Bose sound system. Denali models also come with special trim and extra chrome to set them apart from other Sierra models.

In terms of options, the Sierra 2500HD offers quite a few. In addition to the 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine, Sierra buyers can also opt for a heavy-duty trailer package, 4-wheel drive, power adjustable pedals, wireless device charging and rear park assist. The Sierra also offers high-tech safety gadgets that range from a forward-collision alert system to a lane-departure warning system that vibrates the driver's seat when the pickup drifts from its lane.

Competition

2016 GMC Sierra 2500 vs the competition

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD -- The Silverado 2500HD is mechanically identical to the Sierra. Although the Chevy doesn't offer the upscale Denali trim, you might be able to get a better deal on the Silverado than the Sierra. We suggest checking out both models.

2016 RAM 2500HD -- The heavy-duty RAM boasts some unique features, such as self-leveling suspension and a manual transmission. There's also no denying that its 6.7-liter engine is among the best in the business. However, the Sierra offers far more equipment than the RAM and a newer cabin.

2016 Ford F-250 -- The F-250 may be ready for a redesign, but it still boasts excellent capabilities and some of the best deals currently available in the heavy-duty pickup market.
