2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Release Date

There are many medium sized pick-up trucks out there and most of them will offer you pretty much everything you need but their design might be lacking or their engines might not be on par with your demands. The 2015 GMC Sierra promises to solve all of these things by offering a great truck with enough options as stock that will make you choose it.

The current model is on the market just for a year, so the 2015 one will only offer minor improvements over the previous generation. Do not expect anything revolutionary and we will most likely get few small changes that are related to standard and optional equipment.

Firstly, being a Silverado 1500 based car you get pretty much all the running gear from it with a better suspension that is much more comfortable for its passengers. The base engine still remains a 4.3 liter V6 with 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. For an extra 2400$ you will be able to choose the 5.3 V8 with 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful engine in the entire lineup is the 6.2 liter Hemi derived engine that offers 420 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a diesel option for this car just yet even though its main competitors offer one for the time being. Also, because there is only one 6 speed automatic transmission might turn some people off especially because it isn’t one of the smoothest or fastest out there.

The front is imposing with big headlamps that have integrated Xenon for the low beams and optional LED for the daytime running lights. The tail lights as well as the most part of the back is shared with the 2015 Silverado while the front is completely different with another front grille that has chrome and black accents rather than full chrome.
