The 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full-size pickup that’s something of an oddity in the segment. The model boasts a higher standard of luxury, strength, and technology rarely found among trucks many consider to be all brawn and no brains. Starting at just $28,205, this masterpiece of a truck brings an air of sophistication to the open road. The wide, durable body, powerful engine line, and premium interior lift the new GMCSierra 1500 pickup to a higher level of luxury.
The Sierra 1500’s exterior brings a powerful stance accented by the wide grille. The angular wheel openings indicate an athletic air while the accent moldings and available chrome belt moldings provide a level of elegance rarely seen in the full-size truck segment. The bold grille brings an intimidating look few pickups can even dream of matching.
Despite its upscale look, the new GMC Sierra 1500 brings the power drivers want and the capability they need. This powerful truck boasts a 12,500 lb of maximum towing capacity when properly equipped. The smallest engine of the bunch, a 4.3-liter V6, boasts a maximum towing capacity of 7,600 lb when properly equipped. Every Sierra 1500 is designed to work hard.
Drivers have their choice of three available engines. The 6.2-liter V8 engine is the most powerful gasoline engine in its class with an impressive 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The available 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine brings best-in-class V8 fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 16 city/23 hwy mpg. The 4.3-liter V6 engine brings 285 hp and best-in-class V6 305 lb-ft of torque to the road.
A long list of luxurious features create a welcoming interior marked by the perforated and heated leather-appointed seats. Triple-door seals and reduced wind noise make the cabin as quiet as can be. Premium materials make up every surface, leaving drivers in a sense of wonder. The high-end design and ergonomic controls could even leave some forgetting their driving a truck altogether.
