FUEL ECONOMY

Sierra owners expect outstanding power when trailering and hauling, and excellent efficiency when highway cruising or commuting to work. The EcoTec3 engines deliver just that. These engines feature Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection, and Variable Valve Timing that work together to optimize power and fuel efficiency. No other pickup offers all of these technologies standard in any of their engines.

 

Interact with the features below to see firsthand how Active Fuel Management works.

ACTIVE FUEL MANAGEMENT

By sensing load and power demand, Active Fuel Management activates or deactivates four of the engine’s eight cylinders (two cylinders on V6) to meet driving conditions.

DIRECT INJECTION

Direct Injection delivers precise fuel distribution and fast, efficient combustion. Gasoline is injected directly into the combustion chamber of the cylinder, allowing for a higher compression ratio.

VARIABLE VALVE TIMING

For responsive driving and power on demand, this technology allows for different valve timing at different engine RPM and operating conditions to maximize performance.


ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES

The 2016 Sierra 1500’s state-of-the-art available safety and driver-alert technologies help you better see and handle the unexpected.
