GMC Sierra XFE and GMC Sierra Hybrid: More Go, Less Gas
Columbia drivers still keep a leery eye on fuel prices, but need the capabilities of a full-size pickup. GMC offers two solutions for drivers seeking relief at the pump: the GMC Sierra Hybrid and GMC Sierra XFE.
GMC Sierra Hybrid employs a two-mode system, allowing the truck to operate at low speeds entirely on electric power stored in a 300-volt battery pack stored underneath the rear seats. When more power is needed for acceleration or heavy loads, Sierra Hybrid’s 6.0L Vortec V8 provides 332 horsepower for all the capabilities expected of a GMC Sierra. That same V8 is equipped with Active Fuel Management, which will shut off fuel to four of the eight cylinders when they aren’t needed to conserve gas even further. The net result is a 33% improvement in city fuel economy over the most efficient gas-only Sierra while still carrying a 1500-pound payload or towing up to 6,100 pounds.
GMC Sierra XFE offers improved aerodynamics, special low-rolling-resistance tires, an aluminum block 5.3L Vortec V8, aluminum lower control arms and spare wheel, an Eaton automatic locking differential, and a standard soft tonneau cover to attain an EPA-estimated 22 MPG highway and a 572-mile highway cruising range.

Sometimes, there aren’t any roads where you’re going. That’s why GMC created Sierra All-Terrain for Columbia, SC GMC Sierra shoppers.
