EcoTec3 Technology Improves Fuel Efficiency in GMC Trucks

The words Fuel Economy on a vehicle speedometer with a red needlIf you are looking to buy a new truck, fuel efficiency is likely high on your list of priorities when it comes to choosing the best truck.  You want something that will save you money at the pump without sacrificing the power and performance for all of the tough jobs that you most likely need a truck for in the first place right?  Well, the 2014 GMC Sierra is your key to getting the best of both worlds!  The new Sierra 4.3L V-6 is not only a leader in fuel economy in its segment, but it is also considered the leading truck overall.

How does the Sierra achieve this type of recognition?  Well, the driving force behind the trucks success is the EcoTec3 engine technology.  With this technology employed, the 2WD 4.3L V-6 Sierra is able to match the former leader, Ram HFE with a fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city, and with the 4×4 model, it is able to achieve 17mpg.  These ratings make the Sierra the best in fuel economy of any full-sized pickup on the market today.  The highway EPA ratings are even more impressive with a leading 24mpg for 2WD models and 22mpg for 4×4 Sierra trucks.  When you combine this impressive fuel economy with the fact that the GMC Sierra has the highest available payload rating equaling 2,108 pounds and the highest towing rating equaling 7,200 pounds, you will easily find that this most certainly is the best of both worlds.

“The 2014 Sierra offers capability, efficiency and refinement regardless of trim level or engine choice,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. “All of the technology that makes this our most efficient half-ton pickup ever comes standard for every customer.”

The main component that sets the GMC truck ahead of the competition is its EcoTec3 technology, which cannot be found in other trucks.  It is made up of a combination of direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing which makes it the leader in fuel economy and performance standards.  Contact your local Dominion Motors Thunder Bay GMC truck dealer today to test drive the new 2014 GMC Sierra.
