Overview
The GMC Sierra 1500 raises the bar with capability comfort and premium features. The only thing suited for a hard-working professional is a professional-grade truck that’s as much of an over-achiever as you are. Choose from six trims starting with the Sierra and moving through the luxurious Denali. The heart of a pickup truck is its powertrain. From a turbocharged 2.7-liter inline four to a three-liter inline-six turbo-Diesel to a pair of naturally aspirated gas V-8s; six- eight- or ten-speed automatic transmission; and rear- or four-wheel drive there’s a Sierra 1500 that’s just right for you. The backbone of a pickup truck is its bed. Choose between a high-strength roll-formed steel box or a Carbon-Fiber Composite box—both sit on a fully boxed ladder frame. The available Six-Function MultiPro Tailgate makes hauling easier. The soul of a pickup truck is its cabin. The Sierra 1500 offers outstanding head and leg room Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and separate climate-control vents for the rear seats.
