2014 Sierra V-8 Fuel Economy Tops Ford EcoBoost V-6

The 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 full-size pickup truck arrives at dealers this year with the best V-8 pickup fuel economy in the industry. Sierra’s new 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 uses direct injection, cylinder deactivation, and variable valve timing to achieve EPA estimates of 16 mpg city and 23 highway with two-wheel drive, or 16/22 with four-wheel drive. In addition to highway estimates that are 2 mpg higher than a comparable 2013 Ford V-8 pickup and 3 mpg higher than a Ram V-8, Sierra’s new V-8 fuel economy estimates also measure higher than those of the 2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost V-6.
