New 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 for Sale in Sudbury, ON

The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full-size light-duty pickup truck with all the power and capability you need to get the job done, but this is a truck that can also bring an extra element of style and presence that rivals find hard to match.

Although the styling of the Sierra stands out from the crowd for its imposing, upscale presence, the GMC is actually a little more conservative in this department than some of the more polarizing designs we’ve been seeing lately from other automakers. That means this is a truck with extraordinarily wide appeal, but it’s also every bit as much about substance as it is about style.

Six levels of distinction

The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 family offers buyers a choice of six different trim levels, which begin with the base Sierra and then go upwards through SLE, SLT, Elevation, AT4 grades before you then get to the sensationally opulent Denali range-topper.

Trim levels are just one step on the ladder for putting together the Sierra 1500 that’s perfect for your particular needs as you also have five engines, three transmissions, three bed and three cab options to choose from as well as a choice between rear and all-wheel-drive. Of course, that’s all before you then get to the exciting exterior colours options, interiors, wheels, optional extras, and a great selection of upgrade packages to build your perfect 2021 GMC Sierra 1500.

2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Powertrains

A Famous Five

You’re not dreaming; there really is a four-cylinder engine available for the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 these days, and it’s not the least powerful option or the base engine in the 2021 lineup. The standard powerplant is a 4.3-litre gas V-6 producing 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque, and then we get to that 2.7-litre four-cylinder that’s a step up in power and performance from the V-6 as it boasts 310 horsepower and a useful 348 lb.-ft. of torque.

Despite the excellence of modern small displacement engines like the Sierra’s turbo-four, many buyers still want a V-8 under the hood of their full-size pickup. The first of the V-8s available for the 2021 Sierra 1500 is a 5.3-litre engine that puts out 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque and comes mated to a very contemporary 10-speed automatic transmission.

If the 5.3-litre V-8 isn’t offering as much power as you need, a 6.2-litre V-8 is also available which then brings a seriously capable 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque to the party with that 10-speed automatic transmission. There’s a fifth engine option that comes in the form of a 3.0-litre inline-six turbodiesel, and some observers are keen to suggest this option is the most refined and quietest engine for the 2021 Sierra 1500 and it’s certainly the cheapest to run with a fuel economy rating of 8.3 L/100km on the highway.

No Room for Compromise

With the right specification and equipment, the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 is can tow up to a maximum of 5,534kg while the maximum payload offered by the Sierra 1500 is an impressive 970kg. Whatever you want your Sierra 1500 to do or however you want it to be kitted out, you can be pretty sure the perfect truck for your needs is here and waiting for you.

Even the base 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 comes standard with a full set of power features, air conditioning, Bluetooth, a single USB port, 17-inch wheels, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Base Sierra 1500 is probably designed primarily as a work truck for commercial applications, so the majority of retail shoppers looking for an all-round vehicle for commuting, family duties and outdoor adventures will probably start with an SLE or higher trim level.

The SLT could be seen by many as the best-value option as it comes standard with a bigger 8.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather upholstery, an incredibly useful multi-function tailgate that can open in six different ways and even a high-definition rearview camera. The SLT also allows buyers to upgrade further with a la carte features from the options list. These include items such as cooled front seats, satellite navigation, wireless smartphone charging, heated seats in the rear and towing and trailering packages, all without having to go for a higher trim level that might mean paying for some things you don’t necessarily want or need.

If the adventures you have planned for your truck include some serious off-roading, the new AT4 trim level is the way to go with its additional off-road equipment, capability and styling cues that leave you in no doubt about its rugged credentials. And of course, if what you’re looking for is the ultimate luxury pickup truck you really don’t have to look any further than the absolutely superb Denali.
