2017 GMC Sierra Standout Feature
One standout feature on the 2017 GMC Sierra is the available Bose Active Noise Cancellation System. Bose is widely understood to be the leader in this technology and it shows in the Sierra. Even without it, the truck is remarkably quiet. Aerodynamic mirrors, valved exhaust, triple door seals, and hydraulic body mounts are just a few of the design elements that have been implemented to make the 2017 model the quietest Sierra ever.
But there are a lot of great features on this year’s Sierra. Let’s run through the trim levels to get a better sense of the highlights.
