GMC Sierra 2500 Mechanical Design

While towing capacity is often listed on its own, it comes as the result of many different parts all working together. It's the fine-tuned design and sheer power that gives the Sierra 2500 the strength that you need to get your trailer moving. Let's look under the hood and see what's powering your truck.

The standard 6.6L V8 engine packs a punch as soon as you start the ignition. It generates a walloping 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. This strength gives every Sierra 2500 loads of strength.

The added power of diesel fuel can give you more possibilities with your Sierra 2500. The available 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel motor unleashes an impressive 445 horsepower and staggering 910 lb-ft of torque. This massive powerhouse is sure to help you dominate whatever needs to get done.

Transmission plays a role in your towing ability as well. The standard 6-speed automatic transmission lets you get up to speed with ease, while the available Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission offers more function and adjustments to give you a steady ride. Similarly, available 2- and 4-wheel drive systems help transfer that energy to the road for a smooth drive.

How Much Can the GMC Sierra 2500 Tow?

There are plenty of different configurations for the Sierra 2500 that will suit whatever your needs may be. Towing capacity is largely determined by which of the two engines you have equipped in your model. Here's how these motors perform for your towing jobs:
