When it comes to the GMC lineup, the Sierra 1500 is almost always front and center. The brand offers a host of pickup trucks and utility vehicles, but the Sierra is considered by many to be its bread and butter. The popular pickup truck has been around since the late ‘90s and now the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is available right here in Fort Scott, Kansas. Although the vehicle went through a mid-generation refresh last year, there are still plenty of updates this year to get excited about, plus plenty of long-standing features that make it an excellent choice in the full-size, light-duty pickup segment.
The truck’s available Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel engine enters its second generation as it has been refined and now offers 10% more horsepower and 7.6% more torque than its predecessor. There are three new exterior color options from which to choose, including Sterling Metallic, Volcanic Red Tintcoat and Deep Bronze Metallic. The Graphite Edition is now available on the Pro trim level, while new 22” seven-spoke ultra-bright machined wheels are now featured on the Sierra Denali Ultimate.
One final change for the 2023 model year includes the introduction of the incredible 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition. As if the AT4X wasn’t impressive enough, the new AEV Edition includes a host of unique updates that make it the most off-road-capable factory Sierra 1500 ever built. Unique features include steel bumpers with heavy duty recovery points and winch capability, five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates, 18” AEV Salta wheels, 33” Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires and much more.
There is plenty more to get excited about in the 2023 Sierra 1500 that isn’t new, from its impressive performance and capabilities, to the content available at the driver and passengers’ fingertips, to its selection of GMC Pro Safety driver-assistive safety features – which includes tech like Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking. One highlighted feature is the industry’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate, which delivers several different ways to access and utilize your truck’s bed.
