Article by Andrew Christian, on September 20, 2014

GMC is spoiling us with special edition of its trucks and after it unveiled the new Carbon Editions, the company released the Siera Elevation Edition. Set to go on sale later this year, the 2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition promises to offer a combination of style and connectivity features.

Based on the 2015 Sierra double-cab pickup, the 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition arrives with body-coloured grille surround and door handles, as well as new mirror caps, side moldings and front and rear bumpers featuring the same colour as the vehicle in order to give it a monochromatic appearance.

In addition, the Elevation features stylish headlamps with light-emitting diode, or LED, fog lamps and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels painted in black. As standard, the Sierra Elevation is offered with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, LED cargo box lightning and a 110-volt AC power outlet.

Connectivity is enhanced via the 4.2-inch Intellilink color touchscreen audio system and Bluetooth phone connectivity as well as with the 4G LTE Connectivity, providing an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices.

Offered with two- or four-wheel drive, the 2015 Sierra Elevation gets 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 petrol engine that produces 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. The engine returns 24 mpg according to EPA. Still, for those who want more, GMC offers the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 with 355 hp. Pricing was not announced yet, but it will be available at a later date.

Sierra Elevation Edition Raises Bar for Sport Trucks

GMC today introduced the 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition, a new entry to the sport pickup truck market. The Elevation Edition, which goes on sale later this year, offers a combination of style and content unavailable from competitors in the sport truck segment.

“Much in the same way the Sierra Denali and Sierra HD Denali models raised the standard for premium pickup trucks, the Sierra Elevation Edition will surprise and excite customers shopping for a sport pickup,” said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president, Buick and GMC. “With its striking looks, sophisticated connectivity features and legendary capability, the Elevation Edition raises the standard of what a sport pickup truck can be.”

Built on the strong foundation of the standard 2015 Sierra 1500 double-cab pickup, the 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition incorporates a body-colored grille surround, color-keyed door handles, mirror caps, side moldings and front and rear bumpers designed to give Elevation a sporty monochromatic appearance.

Elevation models also feature premium headlamps with distinctive light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting, fog lamps, and black-painted 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

All Sierra Elevation Edition models are equipped with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, a 110-volt AC power outlet, and LED cargo box lighting. Advanced connectivity is included with every Elevation Edition, as a 4.2-inch Intellilink color audio system and Bluetooth phone connectivity are standard. Elevation Edition models also feature OnStar with 4G LTE Connectivity, which provides an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices.

The 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition is offered with two- or four-wheel drive. A 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 engine is standard equipment, and delivers 285 horsepower, 305 lb-ft of torque, and EPA highway ratings up to 24 mpg. A 355-horsepower, 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is optional.

The 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition will be available at GMC dealerships by the end of 2014. Pricing for the Elevation Edition will be announced later.
