Often the question is why car companies produce the same vehicle under several different labels. Many will say that the said move “buried” the American auto industry, particularly General Motors in the 1980s years when the small label on the cover was the only way to discern Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick and Cadillac and. However, the commercial division GM, GMC, has always had a lot of success in the market, and now there is a new generation of Sierra, which shares its platform and most of the mechanics of the Chevrolet Silverado. Sierra is rightly called “pickup gentleman,” and for many years was one of the luxuries of such vehicles on the market, along with Ford F-150 Platinum and Ram 1500 Laramie. In 2014 GMC Sierra was given a completely new design that divides the lower line of the cousin from Chevrolet, and for the first time in the long history of this model mask, bumpers, fender and hood will not be shared with the Silverado. The same thing can not be said for the interior, which, with the exception of the GMC label, is identical to the Silverado, and this is especially true of the best equipped SLT model.

There is also a new generation 4.3L V6 engine, which has its origins back to the 1980s of years, and his power is now 285 hp and 413 Nm of torque.
