The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is designed to be a functional pickup truck that won’t disappoint anyone. The vehicle would be offered as a double and single cab, or even the crew cab with four door layout with different ranges of length. Expect this one to be punchy and impressive as it goes along the way.
The Pros and Cons
There are several things to love about the Sierra 1500. With different cab models, you have the freedom and the flexibility to choose the one you like. Not to mention that it also comes with various engines too. The towing ability is quite impressive, and the new touchscreen technology is definitely nice.
However, don’t expect it to be as lavish (and fancy) as the RAM. Although the vehicle may be coming with self driving Super Cruise system, you can only get it if you buy the Denali trim, which means that you will have to reach deeper into your pockets.
In the end, Sierra 1500 is a functional and totally handy vehicle that can get you around easily and smoothly. Just don’t expect too much from the towing ability. Plus, you may find some of the rivals to have more attractive offers.
