Helps to ease the driver’s steering effort when maneuvering at low speeds, reduces the steering effort needed to return the heavy-duty truck to center and adapts to crowned road surfaces, reducing the need to correct steering over long stretches of uneven road.
Sierra has built a reputation for incredible performance, especially when it comes to diesel heavy-duty trucks. While the 2022 Sierra Heavy Duty offers powertrain advancements across the lineup, GMC’s legendary available Duramax® Diesel engine and 10-Speed Allison® Automatic Transmission continue to offer the ultimate in pulling power. The Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 engine delivers an impressive 445 hp and 910 lb.-ft. of torque. And with close gear spacing, the Allison® 10-Speed Automatic Transmission allows the engine to operate in an optimal range at all times with varying load and terrain conditions.
Engineers worked to make this already powerful engine perform more efficiently by optimizing its cooling capacity by way of a large radiator and fan, and improving the air induction system. The dual-path intake system draws dense, cool air through both the hood scoop and the larger grille to enhance its performance. And to help maintain optimal operating temperatures, Sierra Heavy Duty models equipped with the available Duramax Diesel feature an integrated engine after-run cooling function, which can continue to idle the engine after extended and exhaustive periods of use, allowing for proper cool-down of vital underhood components.
