What's New for 2015?

Like all GMC Sierra HD and Chevrolet Silverado HD models, the 2015 GMC Sierra HD Work Truck is redesigned for the latest model year. Updates include new styling, a revised interior and even a few welcome additions to the Sierra's sparse standard equipment list.

What We Like

Incredible capability; very practical; great for towing and hauling

What We Don't

Not much equipment; gas mileage could be better

Overview

The 2015 GMC Sierra HD is a heavy-duty, full-size pickup truck aimed at shoppers who need a vehicle that goes above and beyond the capabilities of a traditional light truck. Two versions are available: the Sierra 2500 HD and the even more capable Sierra 3500 HD, which touts some serious jobsite muscle.

From there, drivers can choose between four trims: a base-level model, also known as the Work Truck, along with the SLE, SLT and upscale Denali. This overview covers the base-level Sierra, which is aimed at commercial shoppers especially interested in a truck for dirty, heavy-duty and on-the-job chores.

We'll start with equipment, since that's the first thing most drivers will notice when they climb inside. Specifically, drivers will notice that there isn't much. The truck comes standard with only the basics, such as steel wheels, air conditioning, a rubber floor surface, power locks and cruise control. For 2015, we're happy to see that the truck has added a stereo with USB and iPod integration, though you'll have to pay extra if you want features such as a CD player, keyless entry or interior carpeting.

But there's a benefit to the lack of interior equipment: reasonable pricing. The base-level Sierra 2500 HD starts from just $34,400, which is a highly competitive figure for a heavy-duty truck. A base-level Sierra 3500 HD, meanwhile, starts from $35,500 with shipping.

Of course, those are only the base prices. From there, drivers can choose from three cab styles (regular cab, extended cab and crew cab), two bed lengths and two drivetrains (2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive). Those who pick the Sierra 3500 HD can even specify a "dually" setup with two rear wheels for additional capabilities. Shoppers can also choose between a standard 360-horsepower 6.0-liter V8 or a 6.6-liter turbodiesel with 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque for even bigger jobs.

While it may not offer the latest in luxury or equipment, the base-level Sierra HD Work Truck is tremendously capable. As such, it's a great truck for buyers who prioritize utility, power and jobsite abilities above all else.
