Towing
ONOFF

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.



SAFETY

The 2018 Sierra 1500 pickup truck’s state-of-the-art available safety and driver-alert technologies help you better see and handle the unexpected.
