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.

See how the GMC Sierra light duty pickup truck’s engine active fuel management works.


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 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.


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


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



  • Lane Keep Assist helps drivers avoid unintentional lane drifts by reading lane markings and gently guiding the vehicle back into its lane using light steering inputs. This feature can be disabled with a button press 
  • IntelliBeam technology automatically turns Sierra’s high-beam headlamps on and off according to surrounding traffic conditions 
  • Forward Collision Alert provides audible and visual signals if it appears that a collision may be imminent
  • Safety Alert Seat gently vibrates to provide drivers with a subtle alert 
  • Intelligent Brake Assist gives drivers a brief window to change from the brake pedal to the accelerator when on a hill
