2021 GMC Sierra | Trims, Features, Performance and Price in Wetaskiwin, AB
The GMC Sierra is a full-size truck which is up against some stiff competition in an increasingly crowded market. Does the latest 2021 model have what it takes to make an impact? Read our Sierra review to find out.
2021 GMC Sierra Trims
There's an almost bewildering number of trims available for the 2021 Sierra, with fully 24 different options to choose from. Luckily, the picture isn't quite as complicated as it first seems.
The various versions are mainly different combinations of the following features:
- Front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
- Five different engines, and three transmission options.
- Regular, Crew, or Double cab formats.
- Bed lengths of between 373cm and 398cm.
Higher trims offer several extra enhancements and comforts, but the basic choices come down to putting together your own combination of powertrain and body format.
Engines and Performance
There's plenty to choose from when it comes to Sierra engines. At the base level, there's a 4.3L V6 mill putting out 285 horsepower and 305lb-ft of torque, rising through various other options to a 6.2L V8 engine creating a highly useful 420hp and 460lb-ft of torque.
There's also a turbo diesel option available, which drops the ponies to 277hp but maintains that impressive 460lb-ft torque rating with a much lower fuel consumption.
And if all this wasn't enough powertrain choice, there are also three different automatic transmission options, with six, eight, or ten-speed boxes available.
Towing and Payload Capabilities
With such a large number of power and torque ratings available, the real-world capability of the Sierra spans a wide range. However, when properly equipped and configured, the truck can carry up to 1,016kg in payload, and haul another 5,534kg in trailer weight behind.
Interior and Technology
The first thing you'll notice about the Sierra cab is how spacious it feels, and also how the design is tailored toward everyday practicality and functionality rather than the gimmickry found on some other pickups.
But that's not to say the Sierra offers a spartan experience. There's a touchscreen infotainment system on every model in the range, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included as standard. Every 2021 Sierra also offers an integrated mobile Wi-Fi hotspot feature for full connectivity on the go.
Safety technology varies quite widely across the lineup, but available active assist features include:
- Forward collision warnings with emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings and lane keep assist.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
