The Sierra was the first pickup truck that wasn’t based on an existing car design. It was actually a luxury styled workhorse that attracted a truck buyer that didn’t like the basic features of the Silverado. The Sierra was the only luxury truck on the market in those days. Ford and Dodge ignored that consumer so the Sierra developed a niche that the other trucks didn’t want to attract or at least that was the perception of the auto makers back then. That perception soon changed when off-shore trucks were introduced to the US truck market.
GMC was ahead of its time in those days. The Sierra was the vehicle of choice for consumers who wanted a weekend truck that had the amenities of a car, or for workmen who needed a truck that could hold up to strenuous tasks on a construction site. The optional 4WD drive Desert Fox package of 1978 included a roll bar, with lights, sporty wheels, and a front brush guard mounted on the bed.
