GM announces 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon Editions

Article by Christian A., on September 13, 2014

For the 2015MY, the GMC Sierra will receive new Carbon Editions, for those who want to stand out and make a strong statement. The new Carbon Edition is based on the 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 and is offered in three different versions in order to suit you better.

Offered on both Serra SLE double- and crew cab models, the 2015 Sierra Carbon 22 Edition arrives with carbon fiber graphics on the hood and up the tailgate panel, black painted grille, body-coloured door handles and new mirror caps.

In addition, the Carbon 22 Edition includes 22-inch black alloy wheels, fog lamps, remote keyless start, Universal Home Remote, a 110-volt power outlet and dual-zone climate controls as well as four-inch black tubular side assist.

On the Sierra SLE double cab, the Carbon 20 Edition adds the same painted grille and carbon fiber appearance accents but receives 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

Moreover, the standard Sierra Carbon Edition is available on the standard Sierra 1500 double cab and gets the same cues available on the Carbon 22 and 20 Edition models. According to GM, the Carbon Edition receives a black painted grille, carbon fiber graphics, body-coloured trim, remote keyless entry and a 110-volt power outlet and light-emitting diode or LED, cargo box lightning.

As standard, the 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon Editions are available with 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 engine two- or four-wheel drive, as well as two- and four-wheel drive. The 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 engine produces 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, returning an EPA highway rating of up to 24 mph. As an option, GM offers the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8.

The 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon Edition is priced at $33,075, while the Carbon 20 Edition starts at $38,275. The 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon 22 Edition is priced at $42,270.

If you want one, you’d better know that GM dealers are already taking orders for the double-cab 2015 Sierra Carbon Edition models, while the Crew cab models will be available for order early next month. P.S. Pricing includes destination charge but excludes tax, title, license, dealer fees and optional equipment.

For the 2014 GMC Sierra, the engine range was updated with the objective of enhancing, across the board, the power, torque, and fuel efficiency. A 4.3-liter will be offered along with two V8 engines, a 5.3-liter version and the 6.2-liter variant. All of these are from a shared EcoTec3 engine family. Not only does each engine have standard direct injection, it even has continuously variable valve timing and the Active Fuel Management.

What this means is that the pickup can easily switch to running on four cylinders especially when light-load driving in order to save fuel. As a full-size pickup, the new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is the most refined, most advanced, and clearly the most powerful, in the 110-year history of the brand. Each of the three new EcoTec3 engines is housed in a new exterior. The cabin is fully updated and now come with the next-generation IntelliLink connectivity.

The new model also has other features that have been developed to appeal to even the discerning of truck owners. Aside from having a new design and fitted with technology, the 2014 Sierra has the longest list of standard features placed in a full-size GMC pickup. From the standard tie-down system in the vehicle’s rear end, to the connectivity solutions, and even the standard projector beam headlamps, the only one in its segment.

These are just a few of the many premium features included in all new Sierra models. GMC Marketing Vice-President Tony DiSalle shared that when this newest Sierra pickup was developed, the designers and engineers did not leave anything on the table.

He added that these trucks have the capability and the power that customers in today’s market expect. He said that it even has remarkable fuel efficiency and comes with a lot of purposeful and unexpected features that were made by always thinking about truck owners.

2015 Sierra Carbon Editions Add Sporty Looks, Substance

The 2015 GMC Sierra already offers an unparalleled blend of style and strength, but the new 2015 Sierra Carbon Edition, which will be available at dealers this fall, adds distinctive style to the mix.

“The beauty of the new Sierra lies in its strength and sophistication,” said Stuart Pierce, Sierra marketing manager. “But for customers wanting to stand out and make a strong statement, the Sierra Carbon Edition models are the answer.”

Based on the 2015 Sierra 1500 pickup, the 2015 Sierra Carbon Edition is offered in three different versions, allowing customers to hand-select the truck best suited to their lifestyle.

The striking Sierra Carbon 22 Edition, offered on both Sierra SLE double- and crew cab models, adds distinctive graphics that echo its name. Two carbon fiber appearance graphics emphasize strong forms in the Sierra’s hood, while another graphic dresses up the tailgate panel. Additional exterior touches include a black painted grille, along with body-colored door handles and mirror caps. The Carbon 22 Edition also incorporates four-inch black tubular side assist steps and unique 22-inch black alloy wheels. Carbon 22 Edition models also include fog lamps, remote keyless start, Universal Home Remote, a 110-volt power outlet and dual-zone climate controls.

The Carbon 20 Edition, offered only as a Sierra SLE double cab, incorporates the same painted grille and carbon fiber appearance accents as the Carbon Edition, and rides on distinctive 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

The standard Sierra Carbon Edition builds off the standard Sierra 1500 double cab model with many of the same cues used on the Carbon 22 and 20 Edition models. The Carbon Edition shares its black painted grille, carbon fiber graphics, and body-colored trim with other Carbon Edition variants, and also includes additional standard content including remote keyless entry, a 110-volt power outlet and light-emitting diode, or LED, cargo box lighting.

All 2015 Sierra Carbon Editions are available 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 Carbon Edition carries a suggested retail price of $33,075, while pricing for the Carbon 20 Edition and Carbon 22 Edition starts at $38,275 and $42,270, respectively. Dealers are accepting orders for double-cab 2015 Sierra Carbon Edition models. Crew cab models will be available to order in early October.
