The 2017 GMC Sierra HD is a strong contender among full-size heavy-duty pickup trucks, boasting capability and refinement in equal measure. Three cab and two bed configurations are available — plus a dual rear-wheel variant — in a wide variety of trim levels. Several option packages, stand-alone options and drivetrain choices are on offer. Then there is the lengthy accessories list, which includes many useful items that are available à la carte. As such, pricing spans a vast range. Deciding which GMC Sierra is right for you can be an intimidating task.
The 2017 GMC Sierra HD is available in Sierra, SLE, SLT and Denali trims. All Sierra HDs have a 6.0-liter gasoline V8 and offer a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 with a six-speed Allison transmission as a stand-alone option. The diesel option is pricey but has few rivals when it comes to doing the kind of work that users demand of heavy-duty pickups, and it's one we highly recommend. The base Sierra trim is fairly sparse when it comes to standard equipment, though all of the basic mechanical hardware is shared across all trims and several options are available.
In terms of basic livability, it's worth stepping up to the SLE trim level at a minimum, as it adds additional cabin storage, a backup camera, keyless entry, Bluetooth and under-seat storage plus access to several option packages. Those who want a dose of near-luxury appointments and additional style in their Sierra should check out the SLT trim. It adds 18-inch wheels, leather seat upholstery, dual-zone climate control, an integrated trailer brake controller, power-folding mirrors, heated front seats and access to additional option packages. At the top of the range is the Denali trim level, which is available only in a crew-cab configuration. It includes upgraded leather seats, revised cabin and exterior trim, 20-inch chrome wheels, a bundle of driver assistance features, a spray-in bedliner, parking alerts, a heated steering wheel and wireless phone charging.
Compared to the Chevrolet Silverado HD, the 2017 GMC Sierra HD is priced somewhat higher and is largely interchangeable save for some cosmetics and feature availability. Overall, there's little reason to pay more for the GMC-badged version of the GM pickup. In any case, diesel models in particular have historically enjoyed good residual value and we expect the trend to continue with the 2017 Sierra and Silverado, which are equipped with an even more capable version of the Duramax diesel engine. As always, Edmunds' truck-shopping tools are ready to help you find the 2017 GMC Sierra HD that's right for your needs.
