2017 GMC Sierra 1500

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.

Sierra 1500 (Starting MSRP $30,745)

This is the base model of Sierra 1500. It includes a sturdy 4.3L, 285-hp EcoTec3. Unlike many base engine, the 4.3L includes Active Fuel Management which can automatically shut off half of the engine’s cylinders under light performance demands. The fuel saving benefit is obvious and allows the functional Sierra to double as a worthy city vehicle. Other key standard features include:

  • Chrome CornerStep rear bumper
  • 17” painted steel wheels

Sierra 1500 SLE (Starting MSRP $36,065)

Here are a few of the SLE trim’s highlights:

Most importantly, the SLE is more refined. You’ll get standard OnStar 4G LTE WiFi hotspot for connectivity on the go. And you’ll also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Remote Keyless Entry, and Bluetooth integration.

Sierra 1500 SLT (Starting MSRP $50,945)

Upgrading to the SLT trim includes the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft of torque. The engine delivers best-in-class fuel efficiency among gas V8s. SLT also brings 18-inch, polished aluminum wheels and the option of full LED headlamps.  The following SLT features are standard:

  • Leather-appointed heated front split bench
  • LED fog lamps and tail lamps
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control

The SLT can also be upgraded to include the 6.2L V8 EcoTec3 with eight-speed automatic transmission.

Sierra 1500 Denali (Starting MSRP $66,070)

The 2017 GMC Sierra Denali is the perfect realization of luxury and rugged performance. When you upgrade to Denali, you get GMC signature LED lighting and high-performance LED headlamps. The 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 is standard as well. Of course, you get a host of luxury features:

  • Heated and vented leather seats

  • 20” aluminum wheels

You’ll also get the very latest in safety technology:

The Sierra 1500 is one of the most versatile trucks on the market. It can be meaningfully customized to fit the demands of the driver. But, on each trim, elite, professional-grade performance remains constant.
