5 bad-boy work trucks for heavy hauling

2014 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali
2014 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali
  • Price: $55,465
  • GVWR: 10,000 pounds
  • Max. payload: 2,871 pounds
  • Max. towing: 16,500 pounds

There's no question that GMC bred the Sierra 2500HD Denali for owners who are as likely to drive their big, honkin' pickup to the country club for cocktails as they are pulling their Airstream trailer to the lake. Think of it as a tuxedo-clad heavy-duty truck.

It shares its Duramax turbo-diesel V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, getting the same 397 horsepower and 765 foot-pounds of torque. Despite its civilized manners, it still can do a full day's work with plenty of hauling and pulling capability.

Its cabin is roomy and comfortable.

Upping the passenger amenities considerably, it comes with heated/cooled front leather seating, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a Bose-infused audio system with iPod connectivity and satellite radio. Bluetooth connectivity is also standard. Options include a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation system and rear-view back-up camera.
