The pickup truck market is hotly contested, with mid-size, full-size, and heavy-duty trucks all vying for attention. That’s why distinctions like Truck Trend’s Pickup Truck of the Year are so important as potential pickup buyers determine which truck is right for them.
And for the year 2017, the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali claimed that title.
What was it that led to the Sierra 2500HD Denali’s victory? Apparently, a mix of qualitative and quantitative data, according to contributor Jered Korfhage. “With a long list of numbers-based wins and an equally impressive amount of subjective praise, there’s just no beating this GMC for our 2018 Pickup Truck of the Year title.”
As the top trim level (Denali), this specific model offers everything you could want from a massive heavy-duty pickup. On the one hand, you get pure power: maximum conventional trailering capacity of 13,000 pounds, maximum fifth-wheel/gooseneck rating of 15,400 pounds, and a maximum payload of 3,233 pounds.
On the other hand, it is packed with a number of sophisticated features, like smartphone compatibility, heated and ventilated perforated leather-appointed seating, premium trailering mirrors, and the CornerStep rear bumper.
You can test drive the new Sierra 2500HD currently at West Point Buick GMC.
