The GMC Sierra 1500 is one of the most potent pickups ever created, and even at the base trim, there is a ton of horsepower and torque to be had! That base engine is a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder with a stark 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. Optional is a 5.3-liter V8 that kicks out a highly effective 355 horses and 383 lb-ft of torque. If you decide on the SLE trim, you will be treated to a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine with 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. On the higher trims of the Sierra 1500, things get as robust as possible! Here, you will get a 6.2-liter V8 that pounds the pavement with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Drivers with the four-cylinder or 5.3-liter V8 will get a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission, while a ten-speed automatic is standard for the four-wheel-drive 5.3-liter V8 and diesel engine! Rear-wheel-drive comes standard on most trims of the Sierra, but four-wheel-drive is available to those who want a little more traction for off-roading or lousy weather!
