Stylish, Quiet and Capable
Essentially a buttoned-up Chevrolet Silverado, the Sierra caters to worksite managers and weekend warriors even more so than your everyday Chevy alternative. Like its corporate sibling, the Sierra boasts a stable of fuel-efficient engines and one of the best interiors in its segment. With the 2018 GMC Sierra, active aero shutters, capless fuel fill, the Teen Driver suite, a 6-speaker audio system with a 7-inch touch screen, and a rearview camera are standard.
Hear Yourself Think
General Motors paid close attention to keeping noise, vibration, and harshness out of the Sierra. Easily one of the quietest offerings in the segment, the Sierra has little trouble keeping road noise out thanks to a slew of sound-deadening materials that envelop the cabin. The recently refreshed interior also gives way to one of the nicest offerings currently available in a light-duty pickup, sitting second only to the Ram 1500. The Sierra Denali lineup has posh touches throughout the interior, and comes with Magnetic Ride Control suspension, making the cabin even more comfortable.
A few impressions from our full review: "At first glance, the Sierra is a tough, hard-working full-size pickup posting all the right numbers in the areas of payload, towing and horsepower. But, dig deeper and you’ll find a rather passenger-car-like interior with upper trims bordering on Cadillac-levels of comfort and amenities."

Some insights from KBB.com reader and Sierra owner Sinisterdeuce: "If you didnt see it in the rear view mirror you wouldnt know you were towing a boat. Just Awesome. Too big for my wife though even with adjustable foot pedals...but thats okay with me. Just terrible gas mileage but I dont care about that one bit. Every time I look at this truck I smile ear to ear." Read more consumer reviews of the GMC Sierra.
