GMC Sierra HD Named Most Dependable Large Pickup
Sierra 1500, Yukon finish second in their segments
DETROIT – The GMC Sierra HD full-size pickup – including 2500HD ¾-ton and 3500HD 1-ton models – ranks highest in its segment, according to the 2013 J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study. The Sierra 1500 light-duty pickup and Yukon full-size SUV finished second in their respective segments.
J.D Power and Associates uses information gathered from owners of 3-year-old vehicles to rank overall dependability.
“The Sierra HD is the most powerful, most capable pickup GMC has ever built. Our engineers designed this truck to do the job well and to do it every day.” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. “We expect all of our vehicles to perform at the highest level every time a customer gets behind the wheel.”
Sierra HD is assembled at Flint Assembly in Flint, Mich., and Fort Wayne Assembly in Roanoke, Ind. The facilities employ 2,750 workers and 3,870 workers, respectively. Both have decades of experience producing GMC pickups.
GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, and is one of the industry's healthiest brands. Innovation and engineering excellence is built into all GMC vehicles and the brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. The 2014 Sierra half-ton pickup boasts all-new powertrains and design, and the Sierra Heavy Duty pickups are the most capable and powerful trucks ever built by GMC. Every retail GMC model, including Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs, is now available in Denali luxury trim.
