For intense jobs and daily 10,000-pound hauls, the new GMC Sierra 3500HD is the truck for you. This heavy-duty truck provides some truly impressive performance with a beautifully bold body, plenty of high-tech features and premium comforts. With so much going for this truck, it can be hard to understand just what you're getting when you purchase a Sierra 3500HD, which is why our team at Nelson GMC is going to break down some of the major highlights of this truck for you.


As you would expect from a truck of this renown, Detroit Lakes drivers will have multiple powerful engines to choose from. The 6.6-liter V8 gas engine is standard, providing up to 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque. Alternatively, you can pick up a 6.6-liter Duramax® turbodiesel V8, which will provide you with up to 445 horsepower and an incredible 910 pound-feet of torque.

If you're looking for the highest towing capacity possible, you'll want the turbodiesel powertrain. The exact numbers will vary depending on if you choose to get a single or double rear wheel, as well as which cab and box you choose, but you can generally expect to manage up to 20,000 pounds of conventional towing. If you do any fifth-wheel or gooseneck towing, you can tow up to 32,000 and 36,000 pounds, respectively, with the right configuration. Plus, your payload capacity can easily reach well over 6,000 pounds.


Depending on your trim choice, you can get a simple, work-focused cabin, a rugged and durable interior or a luxurious home away from home. However, one thing that doesn't change is the spacious and comfortable seating. With the Crew Cab, taller passengers in the back won't be heard complaining about having too little legroom.

You can look forward to available amenities like leather-appointed seating, automatic climate control and power-adjustable seating. For infotainment, Fargo drivers can take advantage of the available Premium GMC Infotainment System, which provides Bluetooth® audio streaming, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, voice-activated technology, SiriusXM® and HD Radio™ through the multi-touch 8-inch touchscreen display.


The Sierra 3500HD gives off a striking look on the streets of Alexandria. You're sure to appreciate having standard LED headlamps, LED taillamps and LED Daytime Running Lamps. Plus, higher trims provide LED fog lamps and enhanced LED headlamps.

When you're pulling a trailer through Morris, you'll also appreciate having standard trailering mirrors, and the side bed step makes it easy to quickly grab the tool you need out of the bed of the truck.

Trim Levels

When you visit our Fergus Falls showroom, you'll have five trim levels to explore: the Pro, SLE, SLT, AT4 and Denali. With the Pro, SLE and SLT trims, you'll find highly-capable trucks with the features you need to get your work done smoothly and efficiently. The Sierra 3500HD AT4 is the truck to choose if you expect to be hauling equipment down rocky roads and over muddy rivers, as its specially designed to handle off-road trips around Wahpeton. The Denali, on the other hand, is designed to offer you some amazing luxuries without sacrificing the incredible power and capability that this truck is so well known for.
