The new Sierra vehicle brings you all the characteristics one should expect from a light-duty truck and provides you with a bit more. It actually has much better fuel economy specs than it was anticipated. With its strong performance features that it exemplifies on the field, it also does well with hauling jobs as it has pretty decent towing capabilities. Interestingly, all of these performance rates are achieved without the use of a diesel engine nor a turbocharged one, and it also does not include aluminum in its design at all.

The GMC’s Sierra has already received an update which turned it into a much modern vehicle and it happen no more than a year ago with its previous design. This was the year that marked the overhauling of many truck based vehicle in the segment, with the Sierra and the Silverado receiving a similar treatment which brought you a pretty decent vehicle for the given price. This year they are using similar characteristics which are perhaps unique for the design offered in a crossover utility vehicle. It is something that you will not be able to see in the rivaling Toyota Tundra, the Ram 1500 nor the Ford F-150. Study the review to find out the latest upgrades made to the Sierra car.

Price and release date

2016 GMC Sierra Release date

As the announcement of the new 2016 model of the GMC Sierra is still fairly new, there are not much information released about its release date nor the price. The release date can be discerned in the distance and it may happen to be at the beginning of the year, while this is not still certain better to expect it somewhere at the middle. But GMC is still keeping us in the dark with the pricing of the vehicle. We will have to wait a bit longer to see the estimated price but we can assume that it is going to be fairly similar to the previous year model.

As we are working with some freshly announced information, there are still not all the data and specs released about the 2016 GMC Sierra. Based on the currently obtained photos and the scarce information that GMC has managed to release we can say that the redeeming is not going to be too grand but there are some features that are given. The vehicle is going to use the previous year remodeling and use it as a basis in order to formulate the next model year vehicle. As we have been able to see from some of the provided pictures, the Sierra retains much of its characteristics from the previous year’s model, but does well in enhancing the car with a multitude of innovative and modern additions.

What the GMC has initially announced is that the car receives a new front fascia for the new model year and each trim is going to be updated with a new grille design, so depending on the front part you will certainly be able to discern among the different trim levels that the car has. The bumper design has been changed for the base level vehicle as well and all of the trims receive the LED technology headlights. The taillights are designed in a C-shaped manner and also features LED technology and fog light settings. Anything else is virtually the same as before which is a good thing, as GMC has already done a stellar and more than a good job in updating the look of the car for the previous year. A few minor tweaks here and there was all that the car needed and it remains one of the more handsome cars in the segment beating even the Chevrolet trucks, particularity the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado.

The inside retains its professional look from the previous model. Perhaps the whole new design of the vehicle has a more corporate look than before and has a business like atmosphere to it, the inside uses this characteristic the most. The dash has this feel to it the most, as it is upright and business like all the way. It even has a very good and useful layout that make it much easier to use and control while driving. The added knobs and buttons that have been added make the use of the dash even better as the big design allows you to operate it with the gloved hands as well. Additionally, the materials used on the inside of the vehicle are as soft and comfortable as ever. The trademark red hue of the cabin is a very good addition to the car and really light up the interior of the truck.

As for the features within the vehicle is concerned, except to get the same ones as before with a small upgrade to the base level. The standard options that you have installed within the car are air conditioning, keyless entry, and an AM/FM radio with a 4.2-inch color display. The IntelliLink connectivity system is an option which is offered by choice and there are some other optional equipment parts that may also appear on the higher trims of the Sierra, like the full voice-command Bluetooth connectivity with Bluetooth audio streaming, a Pandora app, and available navigation, with an eight-inch reconfigurable touch screen. A special feature that only appears in the highest trims is the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

The GMC Sierra sticks with its larger displacement engines, like last year, instead of going diesel or turbocharged. They also manage to work well with the combination of cylinder deactivation, direct fuel injection, and continuously variable valve timing, The base engine choice is the 4.3-liter V-6 one which produces great towing capabilities for the car. But the 5.3-liter V-8 will ultimately be the fan favorite with an output of 355 horsepower and the ability to tow 11,000 pounds. The highest engine choice is the 6.2-liter V-8, producing 420 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. All of the trims come with a six-speed automatic transmission and with either a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.
