Despite their incredible and growing popularity with all types of new vehicle shoppers in Thornhill, North York, Markham, Richmond Hill, the Greater Toronto Area, and beyond, pickup trucks are unlike other vehicles. Although we want them to offer the latest and most innovative technology to make life easier, they also need to look how we expect a truck to look. If any truck is managing to blend a traditionally rugged truck aesthetic with the most advanced technology, it must be the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500.
It’s almost impossible to be all things to all people. But the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full-size light-duty pickup truck that comes pretty close. After an impressive redesign last year, the Sierra 1500 can be anything from a no-nonsense, hard-working friend of contractors to a luxury status symbol and anything in between.
The Sierra is every inch the classic, blocky, full-size truck that looks like it means business, and it does. Base models can look perfectly at home on the worksite, but high-end models wouldn’t look out of place pulling up outside a glamorous movie premiere. Of course, it can also be a superb family vehicle or specified to be a formidable off-roader. As long as you don’t need more than six seats, the 2024 Sierra 1500 can be a genuine alternative to almost any vehicle you want to mention. Updates for the 2024 Sierra include the 305-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six Duramax diesel now becoming the standard powertrain for the AT4X trim level. There are also a couple of new wheel options, new exterior colors such as Downpour metallic and Thunderstorm Gray, and the 2.7-litre inline-four engine has been rebadged as the TurboMax.
When correctly specified, the maximum towing capacity of the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is a seriously substantial 5,897 kg (13,000 pounds). If that’s all you want a truck for, that’s fine, and the Sierra is right up there with the best. However, the immense capability and versatility of the light-duty GMC mean there are few applications it can’t fulfill. There are three cabs, three bed sizes, four engine options, and up to eight trim levels to choose from. And that’s before you even think about colours, interiors, and the massive list of available options for tailoring the Sierra to your unique specification.
The entry-level version of the GMC Sierra 1500 is called the Pro, which still boasts a standard specification that’s anything but sparse. If you want a rear-drive truck, the other trim levels available are the SLE, Elevation, and SLT. However, if it’s a four-wheel drive model you want, you also have the AT4, AT4X, Denali, and Denali Ultimate trim levels available to you.
The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 presents shoppers with four engine options. The base engine is no longer a fleet-focused unit that retail shoppers are likely to overlook, as it’s a superb 2.7-litre turbo-four that brings 310 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque to the party. If a more traditional larger displacement engine is preferable, the second option is a 5.3-litre V-8 with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque that certainly fits the bill. Once you venture to the SLT trim level or higher, you’re at the point where the magnificent 6.2-litre V-8 becomes available with its 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque.
Although the final option, like last year, is a 3.0-litre Duramax inline-six turbodiesel available for every model from the SLE trim and higher, it’s a more powerful version than previously offered. This one develops 305 horsepower and 495 lb.-ft. of torque, which is 28 horsepower and 35 lb.-ft. more than its predecessor. Depending on your choice of engine, drivetrain, and trim level, the power goes to the rear or all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic or one of four different ten-speed autos.
The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 deserves and needs to be at the top of the list of models to consider for anyone shopping for a new full-size, light-duty pickup truck in 2024.
