2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition priced from $34,865 in the US

Article by Christian A., on January 23, 2015

GM has just announced the pricing for the 2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition, a uniquely styled full-size truck that promises to combine a bold, monochromatic look with the latest connectivity technologies. For those interested in the 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition, they have to know that the 2WD model powered by the standard 4.3-liter V6 engine starts at $34,865, while the model using the same V6 engine and 4WD costs $38,795.

Meanwhile, models equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 petrol engine cost $35,960, while the 4WD version is available for $39,890.

Based on the Sierra 1500 double cab with 1SA trim, the Sierra Elevation Edition is available in four exterior colours and arrives with body-color exterior appointments as well as stylish 20-inch wheels painted in black, fog lamps as well as projector-beam headlamps with light-emitting diode (LED) signature lightning.

As standard, GMC offers the OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and a three-month/3GB trial, GMC IntelliLink with color display and Bluetooth wireless technology. Other highlights include body-color front and rear bumpers, bodyside moldings, door handles, grille surround and mirror caps, CornerStep rear bumper and a G80 locking rear differential.

Moreover, the Sierra Elevation offers an 110V power outlet, remote keyless entry, heated and power-adjustable outside mirrors, LED cargo box lightning, color-keyed carpeting, deep-tinted glass, as well as optional rear vision camera, trailering package and all-terrain tires.

As we said, the Sierra Elevation will be available with a choice of four exterior colors: Onyx Black, Quicksilver Metallic, Sonoma Red Metallic and Summit White. For those who don’t know, the standard 4.3-liter V6 engine produces 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, while the 5.3-liter V8 delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.

The 2014 Sierra will come with numerous optional active safety features, such as Forward Collision Alert, with a forward-facing camera that alerts the driver to an impending collision, and Lane Departure Warning, which employs the same camera to follow the truck's location relative to lane markers.

Popular Mechanics recently awarded this innovative camera feature as one of the "Top Ten Tech Breakthrough of 2012".

Along with Forward Collision Alert and Land Departure Warning is the brand’s first Driver Alert Seat, which produces vibrating pulses on the left, right, or both sides of the driver’s seat to warn of possible dangers, like a lane change with no signals or nearing another automobile too fast. GM’s research shows that the vibrating seat could point the driver’s attention more quickly and precisely to the site of a possible collision than an audible warning. Drivers can choose from alerts that sound alarms or vibrate.

Quieter, stronger, more aerodynamic

Silence isn’t only ensured by the cabin features. The 2014 Sierra has new streamlined measures that add to fuel economy and lessen wind noise. Improved mirrors that lower wind turbulence, inlaid triple-sealed doors, along with roof and tailgate designs all aid in moving air flow silently and smoothly over the Sierra. Extra sealing around the grille and headlamps and between the box and cab should also lessen drag for the new pickups, as well as new aerodynamically designed spats in front of the rear wheels.

The updated Sierra body and chassis designs should mean better ride and control, comfort and ability. The fully boxed frame comprises high-tensile steel and hydroforming, which creates more rigidity and sturdiness with lower weight. New cab frameworks integrate high-strength steel into the A-pillars, B-pillars, roof rails, and rocker panels, while even higher strength steel portions of the rocker panels give additional safeguards for offset crashes that are shallow.
