The Sierra 1500 SLT performed the best in head-to-head capability tests with a variety of objectives. These took place in Texas and were conducted by editors for PickupTrucks.com, Cars.com, and MrTruck.com.

The other trucks in the competition included the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and Toyota Tundra—all of which the 1500 SLT beat.

The Sierra offers a max trailer rating of 12,000 pounds, with an engine of 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft. Even with the powerful engine and towing ability, it still ranked first in fuel economy with a trailer.

Judges praised the Sierra for effortless performance with the most powerful gas engine. “This is a mild-mannered pickup that is ready to don its cape and do some heavy lifting, saving the day from a long list of work chores,” said Mark Williams, PickupTrucks.com editor.

GMC trucks are powerful vehicles, capable, and refined. Sierra Marketing Manager Stuart Pierce stated that the craftsmanship is bold styling so that the “the Sierra handles the toughest tasks in the utmost comfort.”
