2017 GMC Sierra Denali HD 2500 with Duramax diesel engine

Consumer Guide First Spin If you’re looking for obvious visual differences that separate the 2017 GMC Sierra HD Duramax from its 2016 predecessor, there is one main tip-off: a new hood scoop. That might not sound like much, but that scoop sits atop the ’17 Sierra HD’s biggest news: a revamped 6.6-liter Duramax V-8 diesel engine that cranks out class-leading horsepower.

1961 International Ad

The best evidence that many modern-day pickup-truck buyers don’t use their trucks as “real” trucks is bed length. For example, Crew Cab versions of the Chevrolet Silverado can be had with a 5.5-foot cargo box—a bed far too small to accommodate the traditional 4 X 8 sheet of plywood, much less a couch.

1987 Volkswagen Vanagon
