The GMC Sierra 1500 is Sometimes Described as the Neglected Big Brother of the Chevy Silverado 1500

It’s no secret. The Chevy Silverado 1500 4X4 is the darling in the General Motors Truck lineup. The GMC Sierra 1500 4X4 is the twin that’s somewhat forgotten since Chevy took most of the GMC upgrades and put them on the Silverado 1500. The Sierra was born the same year as the Silverado. They both wore C/K model badges in 1960, and they were produced under those badges until 1999.

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.

The Sierra 1500 4X4 is an All-Around Favorite

The GMC 1500 4X4 has always been praised for its strong work ethic as well as its ability to be a luxury model. There's a no-frills level trim as well as an ultra-plush Denali trim that rivals any truck on the market in terms of performance and comfort.

Sierra 1500 4X4 trucks come with several engine choices, which range from the frugal 195 horsepower 4.3 litre V6 to the 403 horsepower 6.2 litre V8. The Sierra 1500 4X4 is built to be the big brother that has the longevity to withstand the wear and tear of commercial as well as family use.
