 Pros The GMC Sierra 2500HD Truck has proven itself as a heavy duty performer on and off the road thanks to its maximum payload capability and in terms of packed power (in horsepower). Compared with other pickup trucks in its segment, this pickup scores high with a maximum payload of 3704 lb while the rest of its competitors only averages 3352.16 lb. In terms of hp production, this pickup generates 360 horses while the segment average is 335.04 hp;

 Pros This can also serves as a reliable partner when it comes to towing needs. Compared to other heavy duty trucks in the market, the maximum towing capacity is something to look forward to since this can average 17800 lb;

 Pros Availability of the Duramax engine which is its strongest point. This is the engine that generates 397 horsepower and 765 pound feet of torque, making this truck the most powerful heavy duty GMC truck there is;

 Pros Comes with the now popular GMC warranty that covers a 5-year and 100000 mile warranty. This only means one thing- the GMC Sierra 2500HD Truck means business on the road on different road conditions. Drivers and owners can also rely on the Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation.

 Cons The GMC Sierra 2500HD Truck is primed for heavy towing and hauling and not known for excellent ride comfort and handling. In fact some drivers thought that the ride is stiff. Though the comfort level is not that bad, still for this price range something is lacking when it comes to handling and ride comfort;

 Cons The interior is average thanks to the addition of leather seating with the 12-way power adjustment and topped with power adjustable pedals. But the use of average-looking interior plastics leaves much to be desired, at this level.
