And the winner of this grueling test of capabilities?
Of course, it helps that GMC engineers worked to ensure the truck will soon be providing customers with even more performance. Beginning in the fourth quarter of this year, the Professional Grade 2012 GMC Sierra 3500HD will showcase notable increases in:
Tow rating—a best-in-class 23,000 lbs.
Dually payload—a segment-leading 7,215 lbs. (gas model)
Conventional tow rating—18,000 lbs., representing an increase of 1,000 lbs.
“Customers choose full-size trucks for their capabilities,” said Rick Spina, vehicle line executive for GM’s full-size trucks. “So for 2012, we built on the foundation created in 2011, with engineering changes and additional validation designed to make the most capable heavy-duty pickup even better. Based on PickupTrucks.com’s test results, it looks like we got the job done.”
