Unfortunately, GMC is as secretive as Chevrolet and has not released any additional information.
Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC, said, “The new and improved 2024 Sierra HD builds on an already winning foundation.” With the introduction of the Denali Ultimate trim and the truly off-road AT4X trim, this truck elevates the HD segment and further cements the dominance of GMC’s truck portfolio.” 6.6-liter Duramax V8 turbocharged diesel engine now available as an option trim is mated to an Allison 10-speed transmission, an upgrade that will interest most heavy-duty customers. From 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft, the engine now produces 470 horsepower and 975 lb-ft of torque, an increase from 445 horsepower. and 910 lb-ft. GMC claims the new engine has 25% more low-end grunt.

That’s an increase of £4,000 over the current model. When equipped with a gooseneck hitch and a V8 diesel engine, the 3500HD can tow up to 36,000 pounds.

Two-wheel models are available on the 3500HD. Plus, it’s mated to a brand new 10-speed transmission that should make trailering more enjoyable. The vehicle’s fuel consumption will increase due to the increased range of gear ratios. It still makes 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque.
Similar to Ford’s new F-Series Super Duty, GMC is also introducing a number of trailer assist technologies. Technology options here include transparent trailer display, trailer side blind spot warning, trailer adaptive cruise control and GCW warning. If the vehicle and trailer weigh more than the combined total weight of the vehicle, the trailer informs the driver.
