The best way to ensure success in most situations is to try and leave nothing to chance. And if you’re shopping for a new half-ton truck in Stanleytown, Danville, Rocky Mount, or Greensboro, you won’t be leaving anything to chance by checking out the sensational 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. The latest Sierra 1500 has all the usual towing and hauling stuff taken care of in the most capable of terms. However, the GMC is so much more than just a capable platform for towing and hauling, with features available that can put some luxury sedans and SUVs to shame.
If you like to have plenty of choices when you get around to configuring your next new pickup truck, you will certainly be satisfied with the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. The latest Sierra is available with Regular, Double, and Crew cabs, and you also have short, standard, and long bed options. Naturally, the GMC is available in rear-drive and four-wheel drive formats, but you’re only getting started when you’ve made those three big decisions of cab, bed, and drivetrain.
If you’ve decided on a rear-drive Sierra 1500, you can choose Pro, SLE, Elevation, and SLT trim levels. However, four-wheel drive opens you up to Pro, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, Denali, AT4X, and Denali Ultimate grades. And before considering superfluous issues like exterior colors, you must decide between four sensational engines.
Even though the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 can be awash with cutting-edge and upscale comfort, luxury, and high-tech features, towing and hauling are still the main focus. With four superb engines to choose from, the Sierra can handle any light task you ask of it. The first engine is the standard 2.7-liter turbo-four, an extremely contemporary option that puts out an impressive 310 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. The next run on the engine ladder is a more traditional 5.3-liter V-8, which provides the Sierra with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The gas engine many shoppers will aspire to is a mighty 6.2-liter V-8, and that’s because it develops 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque.
The quartet comes to a tempting conclusion with a 3.0-liter Duramax inline-six turbodiesel that you can choose as an option from the SLE trim upwards. It can’t match the gas 6.2 with its 305 horsepower, but the mammoth 495 lb.-ft. of torque it produces makes it an obvious choice if regular heavy towing applications are high on your agenda. And if the Sierra is up to what you have in mind, a correctly specified 2024 Sierra 1500 can be rated to tow up to 13,000 pounds.
It would be going down a rabbit hole to cover even half of the available features and configurations of the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. But to get an idea of just how incredible the specification can be, you only have to look at some of the headlines. It’s easy to see that the Denali Ultimate is the most advanced and luxurious pickup in its class, but there are many accolades for the Sierra to boast about across the lineup. The new model year brings two new wheel choices, new colours like Downpour chrome and Thunderstorm Grey, and a new name for the 2.7-liter inline-four engine: TurboMax. However, the most significant update saw the Duramax diesel engine become standard with the AT4X trim level.
The 2024 Sierra 1500 offers the most diesel horsepower and torque in its class, and that engine is available for any prim level above the entry-level Pro. With a combined 40 inches, the half-ton GMC also boasts more driver-focused digital displays than any rival. Crew Cabs have the front-row head and legroom in their class, and the Sierra offers more cargo bed volume than the competition. When you discover the GMC also offers more trailering-assist technology than any rival and the world’s first six-function multi-pro tailgate, why would you consider anything else?
The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full-size, light-duty pickup truck that has looked at the competition and decided it can do better.
