Car of the Week - June 18, 2001

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 HD

This beefy American half-ton truck now comes with a truly heavyweight engine. We're talking the V8 VORTEC 6000 creating 325 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and a decisive 370 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm. Anything under 8,700 pounds is easily towable.


The roomy interior features six-way power seats for the driver and front passenger, a memory system for two preset seat positions, articulating headrests, and inboard armrests. The Sierra HD also has an airbag deactivation switch for the front passenger seat.


Behind the wheel you'll find un-truck-like firm handling, luxery, and comfort. You will also find very truck-like ride characteristics, fuel consumption. This is one seriously versatile and comfortable truck.
