There are four 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 engines, each with unique capabilities and bold power. What’s the difference between the four Sierra 1500 engines? Let’s find out!
The 2.7L turbo high-output four-cylinder engine boasts 20 percent more torque than the previous iteration of the 2.7L turbo engine. While this standard Sierra 1500 engine offers the lowest towing capacity at 9,400 pounds, it makes up for that with impressive horsepower and torque. The 2.7L turbo engine is the only engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Designed to provide a mid-range option, the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine offers excellent performance capabilities and can tow up to 11,200 pounds, a step up from the 2.7L towing capacity. The 5.3L V8 engine also introduces the ten-speed automatic transmission, which is standard throughout the rest of the Sierra 1500 engine lineup.
The new and improved 3.0L Duramax turbo diesel engine adds new steel pistons with a revised combustion bowl, retuned turbo compressor, new fuel injectors, and improved temperature control features. You’ll also notice that this engine has the best fuel economy of all the Sierra 1500 engines, thanks in large part to its diesel power. The 3.0L Duramax also boasts best-in-class diesel horsepower, best-in-class torque, and active thermal management.
Last but not least is the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine, which offers the best horsepower in the Sierra 1500 engine lineup, as well as dynamic fuel management. The dynamic fuel management system is engineered to calculate how much power you require and how many cylinders are required to produce it, and can deactivate cylinders when you don’t need them to increase fuel efficiency. Both the 6.2L V8 engine and 3.0L Duramax turbo diesel can tow up to 13,000 pounds, the maximum towing capacity for the Sierra 1500.
