Seven Trims to Choose From

The Sierra 1500 is a light-duty pickup truck available with a wide selection of cab sizes, boxes, and different engines for customized performance options. It’s a beautiful-looking truck that will turn more heads than others in its class. GMC offers seven different trims, from the no-frills Pro to the luxurious Denali Ultimate. So, if you’re going to buy a GMC Sierra 1500, which do you choose? We’ve highlighted some of the best features of each option below.

GMC Sierra 1500 Pro

The Pro comes with a 2.7L turbo high-output engine delivering 310 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque with the option to upgrade to the 5.3L V8 gas engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Other highlights include standard LED headlamps, taillamps, and daytime running lamps. Exterior style options include the Graphite Edition on the double cab and crew cab models. Average city/highway driving mileage is 19/22 mpg.

GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

The SLE comes standard with the same 2.7L turbo high-output engine and upgrade option for the 5.3L V8 gas engine. The difference is the SLE has the choice of an enhanced 3.0L Duramax® turbo-diesel engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. It also comes standard with a 13.4″ diagonal center touch screen and a 12.3″ diagonal driver info center. The mileage rating for city/highway is 24/29 mpg.

GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation

The Elevation trim is packed with the same engine power as the Pro and SLE with additional engine upgrade options that follow those of the SLE, which is the enhanced 3.0L Duramax® turbo-diesel engine with 10-speed automatic transmission. This is a more rugged truck with a cloth interior and a 40/20/40 bench seat. What sets the Elevation apart is the monochromatic exterior with black-gloss grille and the unique 20” wheels. The Elevation Premium Package with heated front leather-appointed bucket seats is also an option. The Elevation is recognized for its best-in-class crew cab front head and leg room. The mpg rating is 24/29.

GMC Sierra 1500 SLT

The SLT comes standard with the 5.3L V8 gas engine but offers the available 3.0L Duramax® turbo-diesel engine available with the other trims. But there’s another choice for those looking for a little more power, which is the 6.2L V8 gas engine with 10-speed automatic transmission. Additional details include the most trailering-assistance technology in its class, a 13.4″ diagonal center touch screen, and a 12.3″ diagonal driver info center. Options are available for 10-way power-adjustable front heated and ventilated bucket seats with perforated-leather appointments and 20″ polished aluminum wheels with technical gray painted accents. This is one of the roomiest cabs with a high-view seat angle. City/highway mpg rating is 24/29.

GMC Sierra 1500 AT4

With the enhanced 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engine or option for a 6.2L V8 gas engine with 10-speed automatic transmission, the AT4 is ready for action. The dash includes the center touch screen and driver info screen but has the option to add a 15” diagonal Head-Up display. This off-road Sierra is equipped with a 2-speed AutoTrac™ transfer case, automatic locking rear differential, and underbody skid plates. City/highway mpg rating is 21/23.

GMC Sierra 1500 Denali

The Denali is GMC’s luxury line and comes standard with the 5.3L V8 gas engine with available enhanced 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engine or the 6.2L V8 gas engine with 10-speed automatic transmission. The real difference is in some of the finer details, such as the authentic open-pore wood, patterned aluminum trim, and forge perforated-leather seating. An optional luxury add-on is the super cruise hands-free driver assistance technology. Mpg rating is 24/29 city/highway.

GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X

The AT4X is ready for extreme conditions with Sierra-first application of Multimatic™ DSSV spool-valve dampers and the only truck in its class with front and rear e-locking differentials. Drivers and passengers will stay comfortable no matter what terrain they hit with full-grain leather seating and a 12-speaker Bose premium series system. City and highway mpg ratings are 14/17.

GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate

Raise eyebrows with the Ultimate package that includes a signature Denali Vader chrome grille and exclusive 22″ seven-spoke ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels with bright chrome accents. The interior features an ultimate alpine umber finish, full-grain leather seating, authentic open-pore Paldao wood, and 16-way power front seats with massage. City/highway mpg rating is 22/27.
