The great pickup trucks from Don Davis GMC have always been associated with powerful, tough engines. But did you know that the 2016 GMC Sierra is also at the top of its game when it comes to money-saving fuel efficiency?
It’s true. The same GMC Sierra available at your local Lake Jackson GMC dealer is the clear winner when it comes to getting great gas mileage.
Fuel economy has become a serious consideration for truck shoppers in recent years, and GMC has not only noticed but also has done something about it. The results were amazing, and now the GMC Sierra 1500 sits atop the list of fuel-sipping full-size pickup trucks.
The EcoTec3 engine features fuel management with direct injection and variable valve timing that both generates and conserves power at any given time. In fact, its EcoTech engine allows the GMC Sierra to provide the best V8 fuel efficiency — up to 24 mpg* — of any full-size pickup on the market today.
Aerodynamics play a huge role in earning that efficiency — and as fate would have it Texas just so happens to be the location of General Motors’ state-of-the-art Aerodynamics Lab. The Aerodynamics Lab is a 750-foot-long wind tunnel with a 43-foot-diameter electric fan capable of generating the equivalent of 4,500 horsepower that can produce winds up to 139 mpg.
Subjecting the GMC Sierra to high speed winds, GM’s engineers were able to find ways to reduce drag on the vehicle, thereby increasing the fuel efficiency.
As a result, the latest GMC Sierra features revolutionary new air dams below the front bumper that redirect air away from the underbody and decrease drag on the truck. Drag slows your vehicle down and reduces fuel efficiency because it makes the engine work harder.
What all this means is that a GMC Sierra from your local Lake Jackson GMC dealer is no drag to drive.
