Powertrains that perform

Únder the hood of the Sierra 3500HD, a Vortec 6.0L gas V-8 wîth variable valve timing is matched wîth the Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission as the standard powertrain offering. This combination delivers excellent performance and efficiency, wîth an emphasis on low-rpm performance. It is rated at 322 horsepower (268 kW) and 380 lb.-ft. of torque (515 Nm).

The Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel and Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission powertrain combination is available on all 2500HD and 3500HD models. Highlights of the Duramax diesel include:
◾397 horsepower (296 kW) at 3,000 rpm
◾765 lb.-ft. of torque (1,037 Nm) at 1,600 rpm
◾High-pressure (30,000 psi/2,000 bar) Piezo-actuated fuel system for greater fuel efficiency, improved performance and reduced emissions
◾Exhaust brake system that enables controlled vehicle slowdown on downhill grades wîth minimal brake actuation
◾Selective catalytic reduction after-treatment system using diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) injection to provide the best overall diesel characteristics and performance – wîth a range of about 5,000 miles (8,000 km) between DEF refills
◾Combustion and after-treatment have been optimized to provide about 700 miles (1,125 km) between diesel particulate filter regenerations – a 75-percent improvement over the previous system and significant contributor to improved fuel efficiency, as the regeneration process requires additional fuel
◾B20 biodiesel capability for an alternative fueling option.

Benefits of the Allison 1000 include a driver shift control wîth tap up/tap down shifting, and a patented elevated idle mode cab warm-up feature. Also, the Tow/Haul mode reduces shift cycling for better control and improved cooling when towing or hauling heavy loads.

Chassis, suspension and drivetrain

Sierra 3500HD Chassis Cab models are based on the robust, professional grade design of the Sierra 3500HD pickups, including a fully boxed, hydroformed front frame. The rear frame section features a reinforced C-section design developed for easy adaptation of custom bodies.

The front suspension is a short-long arm/torsion bar design wîth forged steel upper control arms and precision-machined cast iron lower control arms. Four different torsion bar rates support four front gross axle weight ratings to help stabilize the range of trim heights of various models under load, while enhancing appearance, handling, durability, tire wear and alignment. The trim height is adjusted on each bar via a single bolt, easily allowing the height to be changed to account for the weight of a snow plow or other accessories

At the rear is a proven semi-elliptical 7+1 leaf spring suspension for the standard dual-rear-wheel axle. All models area available in 2WD and 4WD. Four-wheel disc brakes wîth anti-lock are standard.
