Details & Specification 2023 GMC Sierra
The 2023 GMC Sierra belongs to the full-size pickup category, which is among the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. And, the Sierra 1500 is the redesigned variant of its mechanical twin, the Chevy Silverado. The pickup is available as a single cab, double cab, or four-door crew cab with beds ranging from 5.8-to-8.2 feet in length. It also has the highest towing capacity of 13,200 pounds. But, unfortunately, the interior doesn’t match the richer Ram 1500’s cabin in terms of quality of materials.
With an increased off-road capability, the 2023 Sierra 1500 has a new AT4X AEV Edition featuring equipment from American Expedition Vehicles. It is a dedicated dirt-purposed vehicle, with steel front and rear bumpers along with recovery points. The car also sports additional steel skid plates, that protect the underside of the front end, the transfer case, the fuel tank, and the rear differential. The AT4X AEV sits on gloss-black 18-inch AEV Salta wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires. The GMC pickup can now tow up to 13,200 pounds.
The controls are very easy to use and the material quality increases with trim levels. The SLE has a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel as standard. And moving on to the upper trims unlocks a heads-up display and power-adjustable steering. Also, there’s a class-exclusive carbon-fiber-cargo bed that is lighter and stronger than steel. The large screen has wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. Other features include built-in Google software, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, wireless phone charging, and additional power points.
