The 2010 GMC Sierra has been announced and it is expected to come with the latest V8 turbo diesel engine, but the vehicle’s launch has been delayed due to the General Motor’s weak financial position. The new Sierra from the GMC falls under the category of large size pickup trucks. The 2010 Sierra model, which is yet to be released, is modified to a good extent, and few major changes are expected over the previous Sierra model.
The model is offered in three different styles – the crew cab, extended cab and the regular cab style. The pickup truck shares most of the design features from the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 model.
The extended cab model comes with their usual rear hinged back doors that do not open the doors independently. The regular cabs have the capacity to accommodate three passengers, while the crew and the extended cabs come with six seating capacity. The vehicle is offered with two different interior styles, the “”luxury inspired”” and the “”pure pickup”” style.
The engines that will be made available to the 2010 Sierra include 4.3 liter V6 that produces 195 horse power, 4.8 liter V8 that produces 295 horse power, 5.3 liter V8 that produces 315 horse power and the 6.2 liter V8 engine that produces 403 horse power.
The GMC Sierra 1500 Hybrid model comes with the 6.0 liter V8 engine that produces 332 horse power of throughout in tandem with an electric motor. The new Sierra will be able to make use of one or both power resources based on the needs. It will be offered in variable automatic transmissions, and its top towing capacity will be close to 6100 pounds.
