A turbo-four engine was great refreshment for the GM twin trucks. The company won’t stop – the 2025 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500 are getting new powertrains, our sources confirm. The focus is not so much on the performance, but on emissions. General Motors needs greener powerplants. That puts the question mark above the Duramax diesel setup. Superb capabilities could keep it in the lineup.
Some sources also mentioned the next-gen truck. That is not impossible. The current edition is from 2019 and Ford recently updated the F-150. General Motors wants to keep pace with its main rival. Soon after the redesign of the 2025 GMC Sierra 1500, heavy-duty models will be redesigned as well. The Sierra EV is confirmed, but the release date is not set yet. It won’t be a surprise if the electric pickup debuts as the 2025 YM.
The GM Authority is a great source for news from the company. They say the new generation of the truck is coming out with more efficient and cleaner engines. However, details are not provided. We can also read the GMC Yukon is being redesigned. The SUV is sharing the platform with a half-ton Sierra pickup. It could unveil some secrets if comes out sooner than the truck. But, the release dates will be close.
2025 GMC Sierra 1500 Specs
The look is important, but not as crucial as the specs. The company made a bold move with a 2.7-liter turbo-four engine. The powertrain is good for 310 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque and the maximum towing capacity is 9,500 pounds. A V8 can increase it to 11,200 lbs, or even 13,000 lbs if you pay extra to get a huge 6.2-liter displacement. A 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel is the best hauler. Its maximum towing capacity is 13,500 pounds. However, it can be discontinued. The company is not preparing a hybrid to replace an oil burner.
2025 GMC Sierra 1500 EV
The Sierra EV is coming out. Fans and enthusiasts believe it can be the 2025 YM. General Motors is not the only company working on such a pickup. Ford and Ram also confirmed half-ton electric trucks. So, GM needs to work fast, which is not a problem. Hummer EV is already out and Sierra will be just an upgrade.
When speaking about the best version, you need to pick a side – either you love off-road experience or luxury features. The 2025 GMC Sierra 1500 will offer the best from both worlds.
The new AT4X package upgrades the previous AT4. We heard truckers speaking about the Tundra TRD Pro and Ford Raptor as the best 4×4 configurations for pickups. Well, the Sierra is sometimes excluded from this elite company.
Also, you will find rumors about some luxury trucks and reasons why they won’t happen. The 2025 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate offers a unique experience for the premium price. There are no too many other configurations that can compete with it. The redesigned truck will also bring more features and accessories to this package, whose price will be above $90,000.
