Newest version of this popular heavy duty truck will come by the end of year, as 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD. It could sound strange to you that company already prepares some changes for this machine, although it is still pretty much very fresh. To remind you, current generation came as 2015 year model, and brought plenty of changes.
