The available advanced DuramaxTM diesel in the GMC Sierra 3500HD delivers 397 horsepower and 765 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful Sierra ever. The DuramaxTM diesel engine has a strong reputation and a proven track record with over 1 million sold since 2000.16


The enhanced Allison 1000 is strengthened to handle the higher torque capability of the 6.6L DuramaxTM engine, while also helping improve fuel efficiency and provide seamless assistance with the exhaust brake system.



For fast starts in cold weather, quiet operation and maximum efficiency, the Direct Injection system helps Sierra HD with the available DuramaxTM diesel engine start in as little as 3 seconds at -40ºC. It operates at nearly 206,843 kPa (30,000 psi) to turn heavy diesel fuel into a fine mist, delivering low emissions and great power.


This ferritic nitrocarburizing technology is a GM-exclusive patented process that hardens and strengthens brakes. Duralife protects against corrosion and can help double the life of the brakes.


Sierra 3500HD delivers a smooth ride with a fully independent coil-over-shock front suspension and 76.2 mm (3”) wide multistage rear leaf springs, which engage progressively as the load in the bed or on the hitch increases.


From strong, steady power to bold acceleration on the highway, the 6.0L V8 with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) is up to any task by:

  • Delivering power when needed and efficiency when less power is called for
  • Monitoring and opening and closing valves for near-peak levels of torque across the entire range of engine speeds

  • Delivers added traction in driving and wheel-slip situations
