The 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD is about to arrive with a much more robust design. This claim has been confirmed by a recently reviled batch of new spy shots. As you probably know, the GMC Sierra HD family consists of the Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD. Both models were fully overhauled last year, and since then, the Sierra HD trucks have been selling like hot cakes.
According to the manufacturer, sales grow by 23.2 percent to 73,777 units during the 2020 calendar year. Overall, for 2023, the new model will receive some improvements in terms of styling. As a bonus, we’ve heard that GM will update the powertrain lineup for the 2023 GMC Sierra HD.
2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD Redesign
The next generation 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD will look more robust than the outgoing model. In general, this truck is one of the most unique looking on the market. GMC emblazoned grille dominates on the front end with bold red letters and prominent C-shaped LED strips.
However, by choosing the Denali treatment, you’ll get a more sporty appearance. This trim comes with a grille that hosts more chrome around, and it features roof-marker lights that are standard. The highlight on the offer is definitively a new built-in step behind the cab and on the rear bumper, allowing more accessible access to the bed.
First Look Inside
The forthcoming 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD truck is offering excellent legroom and headroom, especially in Crew Cab form. On the inside, it provides a roomy cabin that can fit up to five passengers comfortably. From the available information, the GMC Sierra 2500HD will arrive with updated technology, and it will housing much more standard equipment. All the Sierra HD trucks come with a sizeable head-up display (HUD) and with outstanding 8-inch infotainment touchscreen.
The Denali version is the most favorite option because it offers premium surfaces, contrast stitching, and dark aluminum trim. The off-road-focused AT4 is the next best-selling model that hosts aluminum finishes on the steering wheel, center stack, and sill plates. On top of that, the new AT4 includes Jet Black leather and headrests embroidered with a logo.
2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD Engine Specs
This mighty truck will be reportedly available with a two-engine choice. The base model should use the same proven direct-injected 6.6-liter gasoline V8 engine that makes 464 lb-ft of torque and 401 horsepower.
The next comes as optional and is more powerful thanks to a turbodiesel 6.6-liter V8 with a 910 lb-ft of torque. This engine should develop 445 horsepower, using a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) as the basic configuration. In addition, the manufacturer as well offers a 4-wheel drive (4WD) as an option or standard on the AT4 and Denali variants. We also expect the EV variant to join the lineup soon after. Towing Capacity is excellent, and a direct-injected 6.6-liter gasoline V8 can tow 18,500 pounds and carry 3,863 pounds. Nevertheless, with a more powerful diesel engine and a dual rear wheel configuration, the Sierra can tow up to 36,000 pounds.
Release Date and Price
The debut of the upcoming 2023 GMC Sierra 2500HD will be most likely to happen in the summertime. Reportedly, the entry-level truck with a rear drive and regular cab will start at $35,900.
Alongside, the GMC also offers all-wheel-drive upgrades that cost $2,800. The fully loaded range-topping variant can exceed the price of $80k. These prices are in line with other heavy-duty pickups from Ford and Ram.
