Close your eyes and think of what you want and need from a new light-duty pickup truck for the tasks you have in mind around Weyburn, Estevan, Carlyle, Radivlle, and Regina. Now open them and then take a look at the sensational 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. Whether your priority is towing, hauling, style, technology, connectivity, or value for money, the latest GMC Sierra 1500 has it covered and then some.
A book detailing every feature and configuration available for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 would make War and Peace look like a leaflet. If there’s a feature you can think of for a new pickup truck, you can find it somewhere in the Sierra 1500. The light-duty GMC is available in Pro, SLE, Elevation, and SLT trim levels in its rear-drive format. If a four-wheel drive truck is your preference, you can choose Pro, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, AT4X, Denali, and Denali Ultimate trim levels.
The Denali Ultimate is a truck in a class of its own. Standard features include the 6.2-litre V-8 engine, four-wheel drive, Denali Premium Suspension with Adaptive Ride Control, Electronic Transmission Range Selector, and 22-inch midnight-painted aluminum wheels with machining and bright chrome inserts. On the inside, you’ll find standard adaptive cruise control, a premium Bose sound system, front and rear park assist, HD Surround Vision, a head-up display, a rear camera mirror, full-grain leather upholstery, and much, much more.
As mentioned, the first test for any pickup truck is how capable it is for towing and hauling, and the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 scores big with all four available engines. The standard unit is a 2.7-litre turbo-four that develops an impressive 310 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. The second option is a more traditional 5.3-litre V-8 with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque to offer. You’ll have to go to the SLT trim level or higher to get the third and most potent gas-powered engine, a mighty 6.2-litre V-8 that brings 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque to the party.
Last but certainly not least is a 3.0-litre Duramax inline-six turbodiesel available as an option from the SLE trim and higher. This one develops 305 horsepower and 495 lb.-ft. of torque, you are making it an obvious choice for most regular severe towing applications. And if you want to know how serious, a correctly specified Sierra 1500 can now tow up to as much as 5,897 kg (13,000 pounds). As a significant revision to the 2024 Sierra 1500 lineup, the 305-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six Duramax diesel has now become the standard powertrain for the AT4X trim level.
Not too long ago, all a pickup truck needed was a cab, a bed, and decent towing and hauling capability. That doesn’t even get you to the starting line these days, as pickup trucks are no longer the sole preserve of the workplace. Perhaps more than any of its rivals, the 2024 GMC Sierra takes the style, luxury, versatility, flexibility, comfort, and capability of sedans, hatches, vans, and SUVs and incorporates that and more into a full-size light-duty pickup truck platform.
The Sierra 1500 is a fantastic pickup truck in its own right, but it’s also so much more besides. Nothing illustrates this better than its connectivity, an increasingly important factor for new vehicle shoppers in all segments and classes. The Sierra 1500 features intuitive technology, with over 40 combined inches of driver-focused digital displays, GMC Connected Services, and GMC Pro Safety to keep the driver and passengers genuinely connected at all times.
With its best-in-class diesel towing capacity and more cargo bed volume than any of its rivals, the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is a genuinely monumental light-duty pickup truck. But when you add the incredible roll-call of comfort, luxury, and high-tech features it offers, it’s hard to think of an application beyond a new Sierra 1500.
