About GMC Sierra 3500 HD Regular Cab

Heavy-duty hauling and towing require a heavy-duty pickup, and the 2017 GMC Sierra HD is plenty capable of performing both, while also giving those inside a refined experience. A revamped Duramax diesel with 910 lb-ft of torque gives the Sierra HD serious bragging rights, and the new off-road All Terrain X model joins the lineup. More stylish than the Ford F-250 and slightly more upscale than its Chevy Silverado sibling, the Sierra Denali HD is for the person who may own the work site, but occasionally needs to get his or her hands dirty. Available in 2500 and 3500 models, the 2017 Sierra HD offers a 360-horsepower gasoline or 445-horsepower diesel V8, plus a wide range of cab, bed and interior configurations.

Pros: "Value, reliability, GMs customer service is top"

Cons: "Pedal vibration, center console hard to write on"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Ive owned a few other trucks prior to this 2016 Denali Dually Duramax. Dodge was horrible for quality and service. I traded in my 2008 Silverado Crew 6.0 gas for this Duramax and had not one issue with that Silverado. The only thing thus far is the stereo can be a little glitchy and sometimes the steering wheel buttons dont work, but after talking with the dealer they did say theyve had some issues with it and theyll reprogram it when I go in for my first service. Not worried about it at all, GM has been great in the past about fixing issues unlike Dodge and sometimes Ford. The other issue to keep this truck from getting a 10 rating across the board is the vibration from the pedal. Seems like this should be an easy fix for GM engineers. Id also like the option of having 4.10 gears. In hilly regions it helps to not have to push the pedal and let off as you drive so much with these 3.73 gears. Since this truck has the Gooseneck / 5th wheel hitch factory installed, Id like to have the camera to see the hitch since we hook the gooseneck up several times per week and it gets to be a real pain getting in and out trying to line up the ball you cant see. Lastly, I really wished theyd give us some real AT or off road type tires. These ATs they give as an option are really more like radials for on road. Im a farmer and will be using this truck in the fields and these are not a good off road tire. Id opt for a Reaper except towing my tractors and hay from one field to the farm would be too much for a 1/2 ton truck, so I opted for this 3500 but now need to spend additional money on better tires. Overall Id recommend this truck to others without a doubt."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"I love the body and interior of the truck but the transmission has given me lots of problems it shakes and the transmission feels like its going to fall at least 4 times a day when it shifts. I have been to the service department 3 times once they kept it for 2 months. I'm going to bring it back this week and I have not towed nothing yet. I'm a conservative drive. I paid 58k"

"Truck is stylish. Very quiet. Very little road noise. Pleasure to drive during the day. Has lots of nice features. HOWEVER, the headlights are absolutely terrible. Far too dim. Extremely hard to see on back roads. Wish I would a known this prior to purchase. Previous models have great LIGHTS. No excuse for this other other than poor engineering."
