GMC has also claimed the EcoTec unit under the bonnet will ‘deliver the segment’s best V8 fuel economy’. The 5.3-litre unit delivers 350hp and 375lb ft, while the 6.2-litre unit throws out 420hp and 460lb ft of torque. Both are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
GMC will also be showcasing the new 2014 GMC Sierra Light Duty pick-up truck, a Double Cab version of which crankandpiston drove on its regional launch in Hatta. As well as a new EcoTec3 engine line-up, GMC is calling the new Sierra ‘the most powerful, most advanced and most refined pickup in the brand’s 111-year history’. Also expected to make an appearance are the high-end Denali trim versions of both the Terrain SUV and Arcadia crossovers.
