With improvements like these, the Sierra went from a solid choice to a shining must-have. To learn more about what makes the 2014 GMC Sierra such a winning pickup truck, continue reading.

 

Enjoyable Ride Quality

The GMC Sierra kept its boxy straight-forward aesthetic for 2014, but it did gain some enhancements that nicely added some modern flavor, and more importantly, an overall better ride. Updates included a massive new grille, revised bumpers and a more sculpted body. These improvements made the Sierra's overall structure stiffer and more durable – two qualities that upped its ability to keep occupants safe and protected. Due to notable improvements like these, overall ride and handling greatly increased, making the Sierra compliant and comfortable even on bumpy, rocky trails.

Another thing that happened to the 2014 Sierra is that it did away with reverse-opening rear doors, which were awkward and hard to get in and out of. They were replaced with traditional forward-hinged doors instead. Also aiding in easier access to the Sierra is the side steps and handholds it gained.

 

Commendable Power

There's nothing better than owning a truck that can tackle and conquer any job you throw at it. The 2014 GMC Sierra is one of these trucks. Need to tow a trailer? No problem!

When fitted with the 4.3-liter V6, you'll not only get better fuel economy, but also rather generous rates. With a six-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, this engine delivers 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. When properly equipped, this powertrain can tow up to 7,200 pounds.

The small amount you lose in fuel economy, you gain in power and strength with the 5.3-liter V8. Creating 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, this engine has a maximum tow rate of 11,200 pounds.

For the mightiest engine, the Sierra's 6.2-liter V8 is it as it can tow up to 12,000 pounds.

 

Lots of Variety

There's a lot of variety that comes with the 2014 GMC Sierra. How so? Well, you can find it in three body styles, three bed lengths and four trim levels. This means you will have an easy time finding a pickup truck that best suits your unique needs.

One trim level that offers a nice split between simplicity and luxury is the SLE. IT comes with power/heated mirrors, keyless entry, “E-Z” lift/lower tailgate and a great list of tech features. They include:

  • Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity

  • OnStar emergency telematics
