First Trucks to Receive 5-Star Safety Rating

The all-new 2014 GMC Sierra was designed for work. The all-new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is the most powerful, most advanced and most refined truck in GMC's history. General Motors has made it a tougher, stronger truck than ever before. With it's 5.3L V8 engine capable of producing 355 HP and 383 lb-ft of torque, the Sierra offers an available class-leading max trailering of 11,500 lbs. However, there is more to this truck than pure power. Not only is Sierra's cabin engineered with innovative tech savvy features, it is also super quiet. The 2014 Sierra rides with more quiet serenity than most family cars and large sedans. And now, the 2014 GMC Sierra is backed by a five-star government safety rating. The all-new 2014 GMC Sierra (along with the 2014 Chevy Silverado) are the first pickups to win a 5-star rating.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 are the first pickup trucks to receive the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.

The updated safety standards, which went into effect in 2011, are more strenuous than the previous NHTSA curriculum and involve collecting both more and more substantial data, reflecting the improved safety inherent in newer vehicles.

The rating, the highest possible score, marks the first time any pickups have achieved that feat since the regulatory agency updated its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year. The Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 pickups both received four-star ratings.

"Safety is as important to truck buyers as it is to car buyers," said Gay Kent, GM general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. "Silverado and Sierra set a benchmark for pickup truck safety by offering a full array of advanced features designed to protect occupants before, during and after a collision."

Silverado and Sierra offer fully boxed frames, extensive use of high-strength steel, and several segment-exclusive safety features are available, including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Safety Alert Seat.

All-in-all, the 2014 GMC Sierra provides everything you could want in a truck; power, convenience, technology, safety, and an all new look. The '14 Sierra is the perfect Oklahoma truck.
