2013 GMC Sierra HD

2013-gmc-sierra-hd

Just like the Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD, the GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD are heavy-duty variants of the full-size pickup and is designed to haul and tow more. And just like the Silverado HD, the Sierra HD can come with a Vortec 6.0-liter V8 engine that can seamlessly transition between standard gasoline and compressed natural gas, allowing it to have a range of more than 650 miles. For those worried about the reliability of the system, the American automaker offers a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty and a five-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and vehicle emissions warranty for its bi-fuel models.

  • FYI

    I think you have your pictures mixed up. The pictures are not matching up with the text. You have a picture of a Toyota Tundra when it says Cadillac Escalade. Just an FYI.

    Actually, it’s your headings that aren’t matching up.

    It should be fixed now. Thanks for letting us know.

    they are rated reliable because those trucks for the most part arnt used for actual WORK nearly as much as Ford and Dodge. Ford has, is and probably always will be the truck that is used FAR more by contractors and businesses to do actual Work. Jobs like pushing snow, pulling trailers, going off road in 4 wheel drive for the manufacturers intended purpose, hauling loads that in many cases are WAAAY too heavy for the truck according to the specs, that get done anywys….all done by trucks that arnt on this list. If you actually use your truck as a truck, it’s bound to break sooner than one that leads a life of suburbia and subdivision speedbumps……is just a fact.

    All the GM vehicles are literally the same truck.

    The Toyota Tundra has been used for government work around Hanford Nuclear reservation for over 5 years now and the only upgrade they do to the trucks are putting in a 45 gallon gas tank. They seem to be lower cost to maintain and work just as hard, if not harder than the fords. My work uses the Ford f150 and we have several problems with them. I think it’s about time that we use the Toyota’s as well.

    Zack, you ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!! As soon as I saw that they listed the Cadi Escalade first, I knew the article was rubbish. There is no way on planet Earth that the Escalade can haul an equivalent payload to my 2013 F-350 crew cab long bed… for one thing, it won’t fit in the bed of the Escalade, so how can anyone make an apples-to-apples comparison?!!!

    To be fair, they did say “reliable” not “useful” or “strong”… so I guess a Honda Ridgeline or an Audi TT pulling a trailer would beat out a F-350 or RAM 3500… I just wouldn’t want my local farmer or utility district to swap out their work truck!

    I guess the only thing the article’s author ever used a truck for was to pick up a roll of Scotch-Tape and a ream of copier paper at their local Staples.

    Guys, this is a “most reliable” chart, not a “best truck to work the farm” chart.

  • Sam

    This is more like a “SOCCER MOM’s Take on a reliable truck”. Whomever took the survey didn’t speak with REAL truck owners. I’ve owned Chevy and Ford trucks and the Fords have GM trucks beat hands down in drivability, power, longevity (which has been proven with the F series for over 30 years) and sales. People keep going back to the most reliable trucks on the market which are FORDS. I own a 2008 Honda Civic as a grocery getter and it’s worthless. The ride is horrible and it’s not that reliable. The MPG is nothing like was advertised. If you want a great truck,,,,buy a FORD. If you want a girlie truck,,,,,,,,,,buy a GM product, Toyota or Nissan. They do not hold up to real work. Period!

    Don’t compare a 1/2 ton to a 1 ton. GEE. Not even the same. Not even sure the Honda is a 1/2 ton
    Toys in the 1/2 ton range are good. But we have had issues with the drive line. When towing close to MAX. Diffs and axles are weak.

  • SumTingWongsc

    Point being said was the Ford f150′s my work uses only last about 70k miles before we replace them and there is a lot of maintenance costs. We are currently looking at dodge and Toyota for it future work vehicles because our contract is almost up. The tundra is my half ton choice. We drive our vehicles 24/7 to include holidays and weekends and Chevy’s tended to last to 50,000 and Ford to about 70,000. We’ll probably go to dodge for the price, but our neighbors at Hanford have been using the tundra’s and have been pleased so far.

    that’s why there are more f series Ford trucks on the road over 250,000 miles than any other truck…because chevy is more dependable.

    I wonder how much GM paid Autoguide to release this before the recall came out.
