For the 2013 model year, the Sierra 2500HD is effectively a carryover from the 2012 model year, save for a few minor changes. Two minor changes to the 2500HD line are the addition of two new colors – Sonoma Red Metallic and Heritage Blue Metallic – and the addition of powertrain grade braking in normal transmission mode. The biggest changeup for the 2013 model year is the introduction of an optional 6.0-liter engine that runs on both gasoline and compressed natural gas.Read more »
The Denali trim level takes the utilitarian 2500HD pickup and makes it a luxury vehicle with all sorts of premium features. On the outside, the Denali trim level adds in premium twin-tube shocks and a front stabilizer bar, body-color front and rear bumper, and rear wheelhouse liner. Inside the cabin, the Denali trim adds in: rearview camera, heated and cooled front seats, six-disc CD changer, adjustable pedals, perforated-leather seating, heated and color-keyed steering wheel, ultrasonic parking assist, and Universal Home Remote.
The SLE trim level is a little more passenger friendly than the Work Truck trim level, as it adds in the basic amenities ant driver would expect of a personal truck. On the outside, the SLE carries over the Work Truck’s trimmings, but adds in: 17-inch machined aluminum wheels, body-colored moldings, chrome grille, power heated mirrors and tinted windows. The extra features continue into the interior, as the SLE trim level adds in: CD/MP3/SiriusXM capabilities, carpeting with vinyl floor mats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, OnStar with six free months of service, power door locks and window, premium cloth seating and visor-mounted vanity mirrors.
The SLT trim level continues on the pattern of building onto the previous trim level, as it takes the standard features found in the SLE trim and adds in some extra luxury and muscle. On the outside, the SLT trim adds in automatic locking rear differential, heavy-duty trailering package, trailer-brake controller, 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, fog lights, remote vehicle starter and body-colored mirrors. Inside the cabin, the SLT trim adds in: two-zone automatic climate control, seven-speaker Bose audio system with CD/MP3/USB/SiriusXM, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity, power front seats and auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather seats.
