We already know that production of the 2014 GMC Sierra is well underway, and we already know the power output and torque rating for the engine, but there is more about this new pickup truck than power – yes we know this is a strange thing to say, but times have changed.

There are to be three cab sizes for the 2014 GMC Sierra, all of which will come with different bed lengths as well. One of which will be the Sierra Regular Cab, which has recently been in the wind tunnel for a photo opportunity as part of the new marketing campaign in the hope off showing off its improved aerodynamics.

It’s clear to see that the 2014 GMC Sierra improvements concentrate on fuel efficiency and quietness. Firstly the Regular Cab Z71 has a sharp design thanks to all the work done in the wind tunnel, and even though the bed is 6.5-feet in length, the fuel efficiency figures are far greater than the previous model. However, some of this can be attributed to the new engine as well.

To help reduce the noise, GMC has cut down on the amount of vibration and harshness from the previous Sierra, so the cab will be a much better place to be for the 2014 model.

Thanks to all that hard work in the wind tunnel I cannot help notice how much better looking the 2014 GMC Sierra is when compared to the new Silverado, but it’s a tough choice up against the 2014 RAM.
