GMC has a 112-year history of manufacturing some of the strongest trucks with the most advanced technologies and it’s making sure the 2016 GMC Sierra HD lineup lives up to that legacy.

New for the 2016 model lineup, the Sierra HD will feature Active Steering Assist power steering, which will be made available on some double cab and crew cab models. The Active Steering Assist technology includes electronic controls that will reportedly help the truck hold the road better and increase stability on the highway. This new technology will not be available for base models or regular cab.

The 2016 GMC Sierra HD lineup will also come with an available new Gooseneck/5th Wheel Trailering Prep Package that will allow the powerful truck to tow large loads as soon as it leaves the manufacturing plant. This package will be available in the first quarter for select models and will feature a frame-mounted hitch platform and tray that works in conjunction with the fifth-wheel hitch-mounting brackets or gooseneck ball hitch. This package will also include a trailer harness. Additionally, GMC dealers will also be offering a Gooseneck Completion Kit, complete with a specially measured ball hitch and two chain tie downs.

The 2016 Sierra HD lineup will also feature other new available technology, such as: GMC IntelliLink with a seven- or eight-inch touchscreen, HD radio, Apple CarPlay capability, Android Auto capability, standard high-intensity discharge projector-beam headlamps, available wireless phone charging, and available locking tailgate.

The pickup will be made available in a number of color options, including Cardinal Red, Crimson Red Tintcoat (double cab only), Mahogany Metallic (not available on All Terrain or Denali), and Deep Garnet Metallic (crew cab only).

The 2016 Sierra HD lineup will be available in regular, double cab, and crew cab models.

The truck will also come in four trim levels: The Sierra base model or 1SA trim, SLE, SLT, and Denali.
