2014 GMC Sierra First To Win Five Star Safety Rating

September 5, 2013

Way to go, GMC! As far as pickup trucks go, the 2014 GMC Sierra takes the cake on safety.

Never before has a pickup truck received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety. Never. Until now.

Just look at this beast! Not only does it look tough, it IS tough. As tough as they come.

2014 GMC Sierra

The Ford F150 and Ram have come close with four stars, but for the first time ever, a pickup truck has been deemed as safer than safe. And we know why!


Sierra’s advanced technologies pair intelligent engineering with driver-centric safety, using cameras or ultrasonic sensors to watch where you might not be looking. These available technologies include:

  • Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. Sierra is the first pickup to offer these technologies, which let you know when you are approaching another vehicle too quickly or when you’ve left your driving lane. Both provide visual alerts and allow you to choose from additional audible signals or seat vibrations.
  • With Lane Departure Warning, either the left or right side of the seat vibrates, depending on the direction of lane drift. Forward Collision Alert signals both sides of the seat to vibrate.


GMC Onstar

Available on most Sierra models is a 6-month trial subscription to the OnStar®4 Directions & Connections Plan. The plan includes:

  • Automatic Crash Response
  • Turn-by-Turn Navigation
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Emergency Services Link
  • Remote Door Unlock


Rear Assist GMC

The available Rear Vision Camera helps to provide clarity and peace of mind while maneuvering and parking your Sierra — even in the tightest of spots. It provides a view behind the vehicle, which is displayed in the radio screen.


A refined pickup needs to both work and play intelligently. They’ve engineered the 2014 Sierra with innovative features designed to keep you confidently in control. Standard features include:

  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Intelligent Brake Assist
  • Ultrasonic Front and Rear Park Assist
  • Driver Shift Control
