Overview of the GMC Sierra 1500

Learn about the GMC Sierra 1500


The GMC Sierra 1500 is as sturdy and reliable as pickup trucks get. New models are geared out with the latest technology, and the six engine-transmission combinations on offer allow you to find the exact specifications to meet your needs.

The 1500 can tow up to 12,200 lbs and carry a payload of 2,140 lbs, meaning it can cope with all but the biggest hauling challenges. The downside to all that toughness is relatively high fuel consumption at around 11.8 L/100 km—but the Sierra 1500 gets the job done.
