The diesel celebrates its comeback – in American pickups
Press Inform US pickup with diesel engine: GMC Sierra 2021

For a long time, the Americans avoided diesel engines. In the meantime, more and more of the popular full-size pick-ups are being sold with the efficient self-fuel. The result is ideal – as the new luxury model of the GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 proves.
The United States is number one pick-up country. In no other country in the world – needed like new – sold more pick ups that are briefly only called trucks here. The big full-size trucks are particularly popular, of which the Ford F-150 has been listing American sales statistics with up to one million new registrations by anno for four decades. In second place as undisputed as number one is the Chevrolet Silverado, of which more than 600 per year.000 vehicles are sold.
GMC Silverado: with V8 or diesel
If the normal Silverado is too common, choose the better equipped sister model of the GMC Sierra. In addition to powerful six and eight-cylinder petrol engines, the new model now received a diesel engine for the first time. To date, they were only intended in the so-called heavy duty variants for commercial use in the 2500 and 3500 models.

Now that Ford F-150 and the RAM from Dodge have now made it clear and thus attract more and more buyers, General Motors’ noble pick-up can now be obtained with an efficient diesel, which the engine portfolio of six-cycles with 2.7 and 4.3 liters of displacement (310 and 285 hp) and a V8 petrol engine with 5.3 liter displacement and 355 hp supplemented.
Three-liter diesel with mega torque
The three-liter Commonrail diesel does 207 kW / 277 hp and a maximum torque of 623 Nm, which transmits its performance over a ten-speed automatic to both drive axes. The GMC Sierra AT4 is particularly popular as an all -wheel drive with the so -called crewcab, where five people can find space. Then the length of the American is already at an impressive 5.88 meters; The extended version is even 6.13 meters long.

The almost 280 hp do not listen much to a 2.2 ton all-wheel-pic-up and in fact the GMC Sierra cannot completely exceed its manageable displacement of three liters of displacement, but the torque makes the music, because the 623 nm are significantly beefier than the 518 Nm, which the V8 vacuum cleaner offers his driver. The inline six -cylinder diesel with a short breathing space hangs powerfully on the gas and pushes the white colossus powerfully. Not a big surprise for Europeans with the diesel history of the past decades, because the large SUVs and off-road vehicles with their six and eight-cylinder self-fuel services up to over 400 hp and 900 Nm. But the diesel has now disappeared from many series due to the continued electrification trend or have been significantly decimated. With the 91 -liter tank, however, longer distances of up to 900 kilometers are in it without nighting.

The tires do not allow more than 160 km/h
In such a full-size pick-up, the diesel engines show that they are the ideal solution, especially with large vehicle mass and corresponding payloads. Because the GMC Sierra AT4, as a twin brother of the Chevrolet Silverado, could not be moved with almost ten liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, but real consumption was barely above – including higher speeds, lots of city traffic and an open loading area, which without coverage Some of the air resistance and thus fuel costs. 160 km/h on the highway is no longer a problem – but the tunnel tires are no longer allowed. The new loading flap of the Sierra is a real show, because it can not only be opened from the cab at the push of a button, but also has a small subgrate for particularly long objects that reach the end of the vehicle.

In general, the GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 with its 277 hp six -cylinder diesel is not only ideally motorized, but despite stollen tires and impressive off -road capacity for everything.
Leisure trucks with lush dimensions
So there is not only all -wheel drive and a reduction that carries you through roughly, but also to different trailer programs and, if desired. Last but not least, the pick ups are the expression of a completely different leisure behavior in the United States. Quads, surfboards and motorcycles are often transported on the loading areas; Boats and larger leisure objects land on the equally lavish supporters.

The one is at least 54.300 US dollar GMC Sierra 1500 4WD Crew CAB AT4 inside anything but a commercial vehicle, but a real luxury model. The chassis tuning is remarkable despite the rustic construction and so the American cuts an excellent figure even on longer distances. Hard cross joints alone hit the interior painfully and provide a wobble program. With the double cabin there is also a lavish space for up to five people or stately luggage. Drivers and front passengers sit on air -conditioned leather armchairs and the number of gigantic cup holders could satisfy a soccer team. The foldable box under the center armrest or the rear seat bench is so large that several packages of Bud Light or entire beer boxes would be accommodated here.
To have head-up display now
Meanwhile, the driver looks at partly animated instruments that are likely to be a bit more modern. After all, there is an extremely informative head-up display with all the important driving information and the sensible packages Premium and technology are offered details such as an electrically open rear window, networked navigation, wireless charging, spacing vision and other shelves. The number of switches is impressive to the left and right of the steering wheel and the multifunctional screen with its diagonal of eight inches should be significantly larger for a new vehicle. For this, the operation works in an exemplary manner by touch or language.Not unusual for a full size, the individual driving levels of the ten -stage automatic transmission automatic gearbox are inserted via a mighty selection lever on the steering wheel wreath. However, this is the only thing you notice from the inconspicuous automatic, because it hardly noticeably works in the background without a trailer and inserts the driving levels without the driver’s intervention. He only intervenes in the action if he needs an additional motor brake, especially with a trailer or heavy load on the loading area, with a trailer or heavy load on the loading area.
