For 2017, the GMC Sierra 1500 pickup gains standard Teen Driver, active aero-shutters and capless fuel fill. New options include tri-mode power steps, while low-speed forward automatic braking is added to the Sierra’s Enhanced Driver Alert package.
The 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 receives some major front-end styling revisions, as well as the addition of an 8-speed automatic on SLT and Denali models with the 5.3-liter engine. Other new options include lane-keep assist, power-articulating-assist steps and two new audio systems featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
About GMC Sierra 1500 Double Cab
If you prefer your full-size pickups upright and rugged, as opposed to slickly styled and fad-laden, the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup should be pleasing to your eye. While it shares most of its mechanical underpinnings with the Chevy Silverado 1500, the Sierra brings a bit more upscale styling and features to the mix, not to mention the unrivaled Denali trim with its standard 6.2-liter V8. You can find similar features and style in a decked-out Ram 1500 or Ford F-150, but at the base level, the Sierra is pretty much on par with all of its rivals. Regardless, the GMC Sierra 1500 for 2017 has the muscle to excel in the categories that matter most to pickup buyers, namely payload, towing and horsepower.
