GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab is newly designed and gives no signs of slowing down. With seating for six, it offers space, performance, capacity and more in a lightweight full-size truck. Power is supplied via a buyer’s choice of engines from a 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-4-cylinder engine up to a 6.2-liter V8 whose cousin is found in the new C8 Corvette Stingray. These engines drive either the rear or 4-wheel drive systems with traction ranging from 7,900 to 11,800 pounds.
The base GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab with short gearbox starts at $ 37,940. It includes seating for six people, a 2.7-liter turbo inline-4-cylinder engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, 12-volt front and rear auxiliary electrical outlets, Bluetooth, 6-speaker audio and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (via subscription). It is well equipped, but the GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab is not good looking. If this is what you are looking for, read on.

6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine
Not many other vehicles can say that they share the same basic engine with the new Corvette Stingray C8. Men GMC Sierra Denali Crew Cab can. Unlike the Corvette with Active Fuel Management which shuts off specific cylinders, Sierra uses Dynamic Fuel Management to turn off any cylinder when it is not needed. When properly equipped with the 6.2-liter V8, the Sierra Denali can pull up to 9,200 pounds.
Denali Ultimate Package
This kit includes electric side steps, rear camera mirror, electric sunroof, adaptive cruise control, Driver Alert Package II and Sierra Technology Package with HD Surround Vision complete with two trailer camera accessories, bed camera, 15-inch head-up display and 8-inch driver information center.
Technology and Driver Alert II package
The technology package contains a wealth of electronics designed to make the owner’s life easier. They include the HD Surround Vision system with two Trailer View Camera Provisions and Rearview Camera Mirror. A multi-colored 15-inch head-up display keeps the driver’s attention ahead, while a bedside camera keeps an eye on the drawer. The Driver Alert II package provides lane keeping assistance with lane change warning, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, forward collision warning, distance indicator, adaptive cruise control, safety seat and automatic Intellibeam headlights.
GMC Sierra 1500 Denali towing and loading capacity
To take advantage of Denali’s towing capacity, the available GMC ProGrade Trailering System is required. It offers up to 15 camera views, including one that lets you see virtually through your trailer to see what’s behind it. Engine towing mirrors and available trailer apps for vehicles round out the range and can help this top-class Denali pull up to £ 9,200.
MultiPro Tailgate is a GM innovation that offers six-way versatility with steps, bed extensions, load stops and more. The primary tailgate is gently lowered by pressing a button in the cab or on the key fob. This primary tailgate has a load stop to prevent loads from slipping out. The easily accessible function allows you to get closer to reach further in bed. A full-width step can be opened, as well as a load stop for the inner gate. Finally, an inner door with work surface.
It also has a MultiPro Audio System from Kicker. This optional 100-watt external Bluetooth streaming speaker system with available lighting takes your music with you wherever you are.
