About GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab
If you like big and blocky, GMC's 2016 Sierra 1500 pickup truck's got your name written all over it. Sharing its mechanical foundations with the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC adds more styling and features to elevate the Sierra 1500 above the average full-size pickup. Although the Ford and Ram can be decked out with features that easily rival the Sierra, the same cannot be said for the Toyota Tundra or Nissan Titan. Of course, this description applies only to the upper SLT and Denali trims; the base work truck is just as pedestrian as its competitors' base models. What matters most to pickup buyers, however, is the ability to tow, haul and accelerate. To this end, the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 excels in every category.
