Welcome to Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta
The GMC Sierra lineup of trucks has always been a popular one with hard workers. The heavy-duty variants specifically are ready to tackle challenging jobs and endure the roughest of work sites. If you need the top capabilities available, it’s time to check out the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD. This powerful, heavy-duty, full-size pickup boasts excellent towing and payload capacities and is packed with features that make easier work out of hard jobs. Familiar competitors to this heavy-duty pickup include the Ford F-350, Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD, and the Ram 3500 HD. But we can promise you the GMC Sierra 3500 HD stands out from the crowd.
We have the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD and would love to show it to our customers who work in construction, agriculture, and other hands-on industries where only the most durable of trucks will do. In this overview, we’ll look at performance, like towing and payload capacities, job-site-ready features like the versatile tailgate, and technology that will make your drives and days run smoothly. Overall, the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD combines muscle with sophistication, and we’re excited to show it off.
Naturally, performance and utility are some of the first things customers ask about when they’re shopping for a heavy-duty pickup. We confidently show drivers with the most demanding requirements the GMC Sierra 3500 HD, knowing it will be up to the challenges they face.
Under the hood of this pickup, you’ll find a standard 6.6L V8 gas engine. However, drivers who need the maximum towing abilities of 36,000 lbs will want to upgrade to the 6.6L Duramax Turbo Diesel V8 engine. It will kick out 470 hp and 975 lb-ft of torque and is more than ready to handle tough jobs. The diesel engine also comes with a maximum payload capacity of up to 6,644 lbs. If you have to trailer and drag huge pieces of equipment or crates of materials, you’ll probably want to think seriously about a Diesel engine.
We particularly appreciate the generous number of trailer assistance technologies in this truck. Using its trailering powers means being in command of massive loads, and most drivers need some extra help in this department. The Hitch Guidance feature makes your towing life measurably less difficult. When you’re in reverse, it pairs up with your HD rearview camera and hitch view to display guidelines that help you properly line your hitch up with your trailer, usually on the first attempt.
With available skid plates, the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD is also ready for rougher environments where small rocks might kick up and hit your undercarriage. Thanks to standard all-terrain tires, you should be able to travel over dirt, mud, and similar unpaved surfaces with ease. However, if you need to visit more rugged off-road environments, check out the Silverado's dedicated off-road trim, the AT4. This will provide you with an off-road suspension with Twin-Tube Rancho Shocks that can absorb impact well and contribute to a softer ride on bumpy roads.
If you are constantly loading and unloading your truck bed, handling tasks back there, and treating it like your office-away-from-the-office, you’ll love the MultiPro Tailgate. It can be set to six super convenient positions to handle several needs. There’s a load stop position to keep long items in place, and an inner gate load stop to secure second-tier items. The inner gate can even fold down to allow easier access to the deeper parts of the bed. The inner gate can fold into a working surface, providing a place to go over blueprints and contracts on the go. It can even fold down into a full-width step, capable of supporting 375 lbs.
You might spend your days on unwelcoming job sites, but that can all melt away when you step inside the comfortable and well-designed cab of the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD.
Comfort begins in the driver’s seat. An available 10-way power driver seat with power lumbar support allows you to position your seat perfectly to prepare for long drives. Setting it to an ideal angle, height, and distance from the steering wheel can reduce muscle straining and body fatigue. There is even an available driver's seat memory function that will recall your preferred settings each time you turn on the ignition—even if someone else has taken your truck for a coffee run earlier in the day.
When you and a front-seat passenger are hopping in and out of the GMC Sierra 3500 HD, there are assist handles to help you up. There are available retractable assist steps that further enable easier entry into the cab. If you or your crew are dragging muddy work boots into the cab, consider springing for available rubberized-vinyl floor mats. They’re easy to wipe or spray down and will help preserve your truck’s interior.
Creating extra cargo space in the cab is easy, too, thanks to an available 40/20/40 split-bench front seat with under-seat storage. Put down just one section to create extra cargo space, or stow valuables in the under-seat storage. There is also an available 60/40 split-folding rear bench seat for even more interior cargo options. If you need to drive in and out of enclosed garages or gates on a regular basis, you might like the available Universal Home Remote. It’s a remote built into your Sierra, and can be programmed to open several garages, gates and similar entryways.
The exterior of the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD might be rugged, but its interior boasts sleek and modern technology that’s great for busy contractors and other professionals.
First, there’s the available 13.4-inch diagonal GMC Premium Infotainment System with Google built-in. This crisp and clear screen will make it easy to view turn-by-turn navigation, playlists, weather reports, and more. The Google built-in gives you access to this popular search engine’s products, like Google Maps, Google Assistant, and Google Play. Use a system you’re likely already comfortable with inside your Sierra 3500 HD. With Wi-Fi capability, the GMC Sierra 3500 HD also gives you and your crew the ability to answer work emails from the road. Thanks to available wireless charging, you can keep your smartphone powered up without making a mess in the driver’s center with USB cables.
Do you need music to get in the right headspace? Get your work crew in the zone for a long day of work by playing your favorite pump-up music on the available 12-speaker Bose premium sound system.
The 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 HD has excellent technology to keep you safe and improve your control over your truck and trailer. This includes the many camera angles, like Hitch View, Surround View, Transparent Trailer View, and Inside Trailer View. With this comprehensive look at what’s happening around your truck and trailer, you can monitor your surroundings and be a safer driver.
If you do plan on trailering often, we’d love to show you the in-vehicle trailering app. It boasts useful features like pre-departure checklists, maintenance reminders, mileage alerts, trailer electrical diagnostics, and trailer tire pressure monitoring. When you tow regularly, you have to monitor not just your pickup but whatever you’re dragging behind it, and the traffic around you. That’s why we love this app.
