GMC Sierra 1500 Performance

There are four different engine choices for the new GMC Sierra 1500. One engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder with good horsepower and fuel economy. Other choices are a V6 turbodiesel and two V8s that ante up the horsepower and the torque. You also have your choice of two transmissions, an eight-speed automatic or a 10-speed automatic transmission, paired with both the turbodiesel and the larger V8 engines. Because of these powertrains, the GMC Sierra 1500 has powerful towing and hauling capabilities.

You can also opt for two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, depending upon your driving needs around Missoula and beyond.

GMC Sierra 1500 Design

The GMC Sierra 1500 has a crew cab configuration with four doors and four seats, a double cab that is an extended cab, and a regular cab that seats two. You can opt for a short, standard, or long bed. In addition, a tailgate innovation on the GMC Sierra 1500 includes an inner tailgate that can keep items on the bed when the tailgate is down, keep items larger than the tailgate from falling out, and even serve as a step into the bed area. There is also a carbon-fiber composite bed available that is lighter but more corrosion resistant as well as highly resistant to dents and scratches.

Safety Features

There is quite a bit of trailering safety available with the GMC Sierra 1500. Some of these features help make hitching and towing safer. There is also a blind-zone alert for your trailer's blind side when attempting to turn or change lanes while driving around Clinton and Butte.

The GMC Sierra 1500 also has a standard package of vehicle safety features that include:

  • Following distance indicator
  • Frontal collision alert
  • Front pedestrian braking
  • Rear camera system
  • Lane keeping assistance and lane departure warning

A hands-free driving option is also available that allows you to drive hands-free on certain stretches of highway. The Sierra will keep you a safe distance from the vehicle behind you and even take curves properly, using its cameras and GPS.
