Overview Information

The Sierra is GMC's full-sized truck, which aside from styling and package differences is nearly identical to the Chevrolet Silverado. The Sierra 1500 series encompasses a broad range of cab styles, bed lengths, powertrains, and towing capabilities. Trim levels range from the base models to the luxury Denali models. The midrange SLE and SLT models offer most of features truck buyers are looking for. The SLE equips cloth seats and the SLT has leather bucket seats.
