Would it be fair to say that truck buyers are less concerned with safety than car buyers? I would say emphatically, “No”. Truck buyers are just as concerned with safety as anyone else. GMC was well aware of this when they redesigned the 2014 Sierra and Sierra Denali 1500.
For the first time since the NTSA tightened its truck safety criteria in 2011 two trucks received a top rating. Both we GM vehicles. GMC Sierra models were one of them.
According to multiple news sources:
The GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali 1500 have been accorded the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score
Sierra offers fully boxed frames, extensive use of high-strength steel, and several segment-exclusive safety features are available, including forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and safety alert seat
Sierra set a benchmark for pickup truck safety by offering a full array of advanced features designed to protect occupants before, during and after a collision.
This was no small accomplishment. It took focus and commitment to the design and a passion to follow through with improving and already amazing truck. GMC did just this. However, overall safety certainly wasn’t the only improvement. The new 2014 GMC Sierras have added and extensive array of new details to both the performance of the truck as well as the interior appointments. You can see them all, and take a test drive right here at Freeman Grapevine.
