DIRECT INJECTION

For precise fuel distribution and fast, efficient combustion, all engines benefit from this technology. Gasoline is injected directly into the combustion chamber of the cylinder, allowing for a higher compression ratio.

VARIABLE VALVE TIMING

For responsive driving and bold power, this technology allows for different valve timing at different engine rpm and operating conditions to maximize performance.


ACTIVE FUEL MANAGEMENT

Active Fuel Management senses load and power demand, then activates or deactivates four of the engine's eight cylinders (two cylinders on V6) to meet driving conditions.


SAFETY

The 2016 Sierra's state-of-the-art available safety and driver-alert technologies provide peace of mind and help prepare you for the unexpected. Please note that safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for more important safety information.
