Performance Highlights

4.3L EcoTec3 V6

The standard 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine gets up to 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, direct injection, and variable valve timing.

5.3L EcoTec3 V8

Upgrade to the available 5.3L V8 and experience jaw-dropping 355 hp and the flexibility of optional FlexFuel capability.

6.2L EcoTec3 V8

Considered the most powerful gasoline V8 in its class, the 6.2L teams with the Hydra-Matic 8-speed automatic transmission to offer unprecedented power.

Eaton® Locker

The Sierra is the only truck in its class that offers Eaton® fully automatic locking rear differentials. It locks to turn both rear wheels in unison for added traction when slippage is detected.

Rugged Durability Enhances Performance

The GMC Sierra 1500 couldn’t out-perform other trucks in its class if it weren’t surrounded by quality materials. GMC uses an extensive amount of galvanized sheet metal which minimizes corrosion and protects the Sierra’s frame from degrading. Roll-formed, high-grade steel that’s stronger, lighter, and more durable makes up the Sierra’s bed. The available spray-on bedliner provides a permanent non-skid protective layer.

The Sierra has an array of hauling and trailering features like Tow/Haul mode, which raises transmission upshift points so there’s sufficient power when towing a payload, and trailer sway control keeps both your truck and your trailer heading in the same direction. The hill start assist feature automatically detects when the Sierra is on a 5% grade or more and holds the brakes momentarily while you switch to the accelerator.
