Battle of the Sierra 1500s: Which Model is the Perfect Fit for You?

With a variety of stellar new GMC models for sale, it can be difficult to decide which new truck is the right one for your needs. That’s why we’re here today to break down the different available options for one of the automaker’s top-selling new vehicles: the GMC Sierra light-duty truck. The new 2017 Sierra 1500 truck lineup includes four different ground-breaking variations–all of them are sporty and sophisticated but just one of them is the perfect fit for you.

The Sierra 1500 model comes in three available trim levels: Sierra, SLE, and SLT. This basic model comes standard with a 6.2-liter EcoTec2 V8 engine capable of generating 420 horsepower, making it a fantastic option for those who value extra power and towing capabilities. The Sierra 1500 also comes standard with a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, an enhanced Driver Alert Package complete with a whole suite of stand-out safety features, and an 8-inch diagonal GMC IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system. The Sierra 1500 starts at $28,405.

Next up is the Sierra Elevation, also known as the Sierra 1500’s slightly flashier cousin. The Elevation is available in two trim levels, Sierra and SLE, and is notable for its luxury features. The truck’s best-in-class components include 20-inch black or machined aluminum wheels, HID projector-beam headlamps, GMC signature LED lighting and LED fog lamps. The Elevation also comes with a 7-inch or 8-inch diagonal touchscreen equipped with the GMC IntelliLink infotainment system. The Elevation starts at $34,920.

If you’re looking for something that packs a bit more of a punch, the Sierra All Terrain is one of our most popular GMC Sierra 1500s for sale. The All Terrain comes with a range of incredible features including a Z71 off-road suspension featuring Rancho monotube shocks, an Eaton automatic locking rear differential, and an off-road inclinometer. Rest assured, this beast of a truck can’t be beaten on the open road. But the All Terrain isn’t just a no-nonsense rough rider–it also comes with its fair share of luxurious features, like leather-appointed front bucket seats, a Bose premium 7-speaker audio system, and a spray-on bed liner with GMC embossment. The All Terrain starts at $50,710.

Finally, the Sierra Denali is the truck to beat if you’re in the market for something truly exceptional. The Denali comes with the most powerful gas engine in its class: the 6.2-liter V8 engine. The Denali also comes with standard magnetic ride control (a unique feature that’s currently not offered by any competitor), available Tri-Mode power steps, LED headlamps and fog lamps, 22” aluminum wheels with premium paint and chrome inserts, and 12-way power, heated and ventilated, leather-appointed front seats. The Denali starts at $52,505.
