JD Power Names GMC Sierra HD Pickup Most Dependable Large Pickup

The GMC Sierra HD pickup truck – including 2500HD ¾-ton and 3500HD 1-ton models – ranks highest in its segment, according to the 2013 J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study. The Sierra 1500 light-duty pickup and Yukon full-size SUV finished second in their respective segments.

J.D Power and Associates uses information gathered from owners of three-year-old vehicles to rank overall dependability.

“The Sierra HD is the most powerful, most capable pickup GMC has ever built. Our engineers designed this truck to do the job well and to do it every day.” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. “We expect all of our vehicles to perform at the highest level every time a customer gets behind the wheel.”

Sierra HD is assembled at Flint Assembly in Flint, Mich., and Fort Wayne Assembly in Roanoke, Ind. The facilities employ 2,750 workers and 3,870 workers, respectively. Both have decades of experience producing GMC pickups.
