Auto Critics Review the Incredible 2017 GMC Sierra 1500
Since the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 has hit our lot, customers have been amazed by its powerful performance and high-tech features. At Westridge Buick GMC, we are huge fans of the all-new Sierra 1500 and not surprised that popular auto critics are also impressed by this exceptional pickup truck. Here’s what some of them had to say about the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500:
“The 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 offers a strong combination of fuel economy and power.”
Powered by the base 6.2L V8 engine that can put out 420 hp and 460 Ib-ft of torque, the Sierra 1500 is capable of taking on any driving need. If you opt for the available 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine, you’ll enjoy the best fuel economy of any V8 engine in its class. In addition, features like Hill Start Assist and the Trailer Sway Control system make vehicle maneuvering and trailer transporting a breeze.
“… GMC’s half-ton Sierra 1500 is arguably among the best-looking and best-equipped of the bunch.”
The 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 sports a rugged look with a large grille design, angular wheel openings, and signature lighting that is sure to turn heads left and right. Once you step foot into its cabin, you’ll find a plethora of standard conveniences such as a large center console, locking under-seat storage, a wireless charging pad, and the IntelliLink Infotainment system with a color touchscreen.
The Car Connection
“Newly-available automatic emergency braking is a good step toward making the Sierra even safer.”
The brand new Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking system is included with the available Enhanced Driver Alert package on the Sierra 1500. It is designed to help avoid accidents at low speeds. If your Sierra 1500 is traveling at a low speed and it detects that a front-end collision is likely to occur, it will automatically apply the brakes if you have not already activated them.
Car and Driver
“The Sierra 1500 is a handsome machine, especially when decked out in the ultraluxurious Denali trim or the sinister-looking All Terrain X package.”
The Sierra 1500 All Terrain X package offers plenty of capability with its standard 5.3L V8 engine and four-wheel drive, a new stainless steel performance exhaust system, and an Eaton automatic locking rear differential.
If luxury is your priority, you can’t go wrong with the Denali trim, which truly has it all. The Denali is equipped with 20-inch wheels, exclusive Magnetic Ride Control dampers, unique interior details, all of the available driver assistance features, and so much more.
