What is New in 2017 for The GMC Sierra 1500

There are some differences in the 2017 model over last year's GMC Sierra 1500, but overall, its styling and capable performance have remained intact. GMC is discontinuing some colors, such as Light Steel Gray Metallic, Mahogany Metallic, and Iridium Metallic. This year they will introduce Pepperdust Metallic and Dark Slate Metallic instead. Compared to last year, 2017 will see the Sierra 1500 have changes to some specific packages and trims. Low speed mitigation has been added to the Enhanced Driver Alert Package for increased safety. With the SLE model you can get an Elevation Edition, but the All Terrain Package has been discontinued. When you opt for the SLT Crew Cap Premium Plus Package, you can expect an 8-inch IntelliLink system with Android Auto and a trailer brake controller.

You can expect a capless fuel fill system across all models unless you opt out of the pickup box. Exterior updates include improved traction with all-season Blackwell tires. You can access the truck bed easily with the addition of tri-mode power steps that include rearward articulation. The cab is easier to step in with the running side board that is foot activated. These new additions combine seamlessly to bring you a pickup that is comfortable and capable.


A Look Back with the GMC Sierra 1500

Quality pickup trucks have been rolling off the GMC line since as early as 1918. When the Sierra first came on the market, it was introduced as a trim, instead of a model, in 1988. For a ten-year period, the Sierra trims were known by a designation of capability such as 1500, 2500, and 3500. The roots of the model we recognize today started in 1999, when the Sierra entered the market under its own name, with new engines and a redesign. 345-horsepower and 255-horsepower V8 engines were among these initial models. The Quadrasteer entered the market in 2003 with a turning radius that led the class, only for it to be discontinued in 2006. By the end of 2006, the Sierra was beginning to look distinctly like today's models. For the following years, the engines increased in power while the trim options expanded to offer even more features, developing into the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 on the market today.
