Since this is 2016, writing about models that are more than a full year away is always ungrateful, but every now and then there is a breath of relief such as the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel. This truck was given some well-deserved treatment and the mere facelift is far from being all.
In fact, the main focus on the Sierra has always been practicality, and if rumors hold true, this bad boy will not disappoint. With new materials and an updated appearance, it is expected to be ready to greet the world in no time at all.
It is unclear whether the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel will make an appearance during next year or not.
The second half of 2017 sounds about right, even though there is no way of knowing that. It is simply far too early to make accurate predictions regarding this particular model.
2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel Price
The price tag of the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel is still unknown, although this does not mean it will step outside of its usual price range.
Earlier models would go for roughly $54.000 for the base version and up to $65.000 for higher trims. Any additional equipment may impact the price.
Since this is a 2018 model we are talking about here, nothing is certain when it comes to appearance. Given that there are not even spy shots available at the moment, we can only guess at what the real deal is going to look like.
If the previous models are a hint, we are looking at a sturdy metal sheet grille as well as some strong LED lights. The front mask is going to receive a slight facelift, although nothing too fancy.
If the rumors about lighter materials for the chassis are true, then the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel is going to look and feel much lighter than it used to.
Interior of GMC Sierra 2500 HD
On the inside of the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel, practicality and versatility are most likely going to be the key words. Along with a number of gadgets and increased connectivity options, there is likely going to be a plethora of safety features meant to ensure you get exactly where you were headed, and in one piece, too.
As for the upholstery and cabin materials, there have been no strong leads, but considering the previous models, we shouldn’t hold our breath for something too fancy, unless we are ready to cough up the extra cash.
As for the source of strength for the upcoming 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel, there are plenty of rumors. However, only a handful of those actually talked about a diesel version and what they said was interesting.
We can expect something along the lines of a 6.6 L turbocharged diesel V8 engine (most likely Duramax) packing roughly 400 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque. As for the fuel consumption, there was little to go on, roughly 16 miles on a gallon mixed.
