No other heavy-duty truck matches the 2016 GMC Sierra HD lineup now available for sale across showrooms in the Middle East when it comes to offering capability with comfort, quietness and uniquely crafted interiors. Today, the GMC Sierra HD stands alone as the industry’s premium HD truck, building on a 114-year legacy of heavy-duty trucks with technologies and features that make leveraging its capabilities easier and more enjoyable.

The Denali series is the ultimate expression of GMC and the Sierra Denali HD is the ultimate expression of the Sierra HD range, offering distinctive styling and exclusive amenities that take the truck’s signature comfort and crafted interior environment to the highest level.

 

New for 2016, Active Steering Assist power steering on some double cab and crew cab models helps make hauling and trailering easier and more confident, with electronic controls that enhance road holding and stability on the highway regardless of whether the truck is loaded. It also offers greater responsiveness and an improved steering feel.

 

A new Gooseneck/5th Wheel Trailering Prep Package makes Sierra HD models ready to tow larger trailers right from the factory. It features a frame-mounted hitch platform and tray that accommodates a gooseneck ball hitch or fifth wheel hitch mounting brackets, and includes a cargo bed-mounted trailer harness. A new Gooseneck Completion Kit will also be available from GMC dealers, featuring a 2-5/16-inch ball hitch and two chain tie-downs.
