Buyers of 2017 Sierra get more capability, same reliability

New GMC pickup truck overpowers new Nissan Titan

EDMONTON, Alberta, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The 2017 GMC Sierra available in the Don Wheaton showroom is more than ready to show a new crop of buyers why it's an industry leader. GMC's team of engineers and designers made very few changes to the 2017 model of the light-duty version of the Sierra. Most of the changes made to the truck have centered around making it more capable of doing more work as well as safer. Several trim grades of the new premium pickup truck are available at Don Wheaton. Potential customers are very much encouraged to contact the Edmonton-based dealership to schedule a test drive today.

As capable as the 2017 GMC Sierra is, the truck still must function as a mode of transportation and offer necessary convenience features to serve the driver. Making its debut for the new model year in the 2017 Sierra is the Teen Driver System. Parents can monitor several different metrics to ensure their young users of the vehicle are making good choices. The categories include maximum speed, distance traveled and if any of the active safety features have been activated.  

Even though the same options for engines and transmissions are available as were offered last year, the 2017 Sierra is going to a little more fuel efficient. The change comes thanks to new aero shutters which can help deflect air under the truck to help it cut through the air easier. 

Comparing the 2017 GMC Sierra vs. 2017 Nissan Titan is very interesting. First, the competing Nissan Titan has been vastly redesigned and improved for the new model year. Additionally, Nissan advocates will boast about how much more horsepower and torque their truck makes compared to a comparable power plant for the new Sierra. However, this isn't much more than bluster. Subtle changes made to the crew cab version of the 2017 Sierra allow it to pull up to 12,500 pounds when properly equipped. At best the 2017 Nissan Titan tops out around one and a half tons under this mark. Similarly, the 2017 Sierra can haul more material in its cargo bed by a pretty fair margin.
