The Ever-Capable GMC Sierra 1500
Year after year, the GMC Sierra continues to impress drivers as a durable and refined truck that’s an asset to any job. It has comprehensive engine options, hefty trailering capacity, and a plush interior so even in the toughest of tasks you’re in a comfortable vantage point. It’s no wonder that this tremendous tool ranked within the Top 20 Best Selling Vehicles of 2016 with more than 198 thousand units sold in the US.
This full-size truck has three cab configurations, three bed lengths, four trim levels, and five powertrain options to choose from. The base standard GMC Sierra 1500 is a two-door regular cab and a 6.5-foot bed with a 285-hp 4.3-liter V-6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. However, you could build this bad lad up to accommodate more people, add extra space in the box or make it super heavy-duty for trailering jobs. The Denali trim can earn 420-hp with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and the cab and bed that suits you best.
But this trucks isn’t all about just the job, GMC has added cutting-edge safety features that stand out in the segment. The Enhanced Driver Alert Package, which includes lane-keep assist, automatic headlights, front and rear parking sensors, forward-collision alert, and a Safety Alert Seat that vibrates if the vehicle senses a potential collision, ensures complete security on all sides of the vehicle. And if this vehicle is used by youngsters, then you can add the GM Teen Driver Technology option that helps create healthy habits in new drivers – for example, the radio stays muted until seatbelts for all passengers are buckled and offers visual and audible reminders when the vehicle travels faster than preset speeds.
