What You Will Like

The 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 lineup comprises a set of pickups aimed at a wide range of uses, from personal transportation to purpose-built tow rigs, farm or ranch haulers or off-road machines. With three cab styles, two bed lengths, three engines, 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive versions, and various trim levels from spartan to lavish, the Sierra lineup offers something for all.

Top-of-the-line Denali models remain the choice of more discerning truck shoppers, with luxurious interiors and the full set of features of a premium SUV. The Sierra is a quiet truck, thanks to a host of sound-deadening additions like triple-sealed doors and aerodynamic measures.

The Sierra's refined engines are strong yet fuel-efficient. GM boasts that models with the V6 have towing ratings of up to 7,600 pounds, which is hundreds of pounds more than a comparable Ford F-150 or Ram 1500. Also, the Sierra 1500 might have some of the lowest maintenance costs among pickups because of its 4-wheel disc brakes with Duralife rotors, which GM claims will last twice as long as conventional brake rotors.

What's New For 2016

The Sierra hasn't been completely redesigned for 2016, but it does get major upgrades for this year. Styling has been improved through a brand new grill and front fascia along with new taillights at the back. Beyond the exterior changes, the Sierra also gets a host of new electronic infotainment features including a brand new 7-inch touchscreen, increased connectivity and functionality for Apple devices and wireless phone charging. New options for 2016 include power articulating steps to help ingress and egress, a remote locking tailgate, a driver alert package and an 8-inch touchscreen.

Introduction

The GMC Sierra 1500 line of full-size pickups has been updated for 2016 with the latest technology and revised styling. Distinctive grilles and other visual cues better distinguish the 2016 Sierra models and trim levels from one another.

The GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado share chassis and most mechanicals, and much of what can be said about Sierra can be said of Silverado.

Ruggedly handsome, like a cowboy dressed for the big city, the GMC Sierra looks more conservative and slightly more upscale than does the Chevy Silverado. Sierra Denali models offer real-time damping, a 6.2-liter V6, and an 8-speed automatic.

Among the changes for 2016: revised styling in front, new grille designs, new headlights, LED foglights, new wheel designs. GM’s 8-speed automatic is available with the 5.3-liter V8. GMC IntelliLink has been updated with new screens, faster processors, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Wireless phone charging is available. A remote locking tailgate is available, as are power-articulating assist steps.

This third-generation Sierra was introduced as a 2014 model.

Getting in and out of a Sierra (or Silverado) somehow seems easier than with some of the other pickups, and loading equipment or sacks of feed in back seems to require a little less heave-ho. The Sierra rides easier and feels more carlike than do most of the others, though Ram rides very well, also.

The GMC Sierra is a comfortable truck. The dash is upright and formal, trimmed with soft-touch material and fitted with buttons and knobs that are easy to operate.

While other manufacturers downsized engines and used turbochargers and lightweight aluminum construction to gain fuel efficiency, GM stuck with larger displacement engines that use direct injection, continuously variable valves, and cylinder deactivation to achieve those goals. A choice of engines is available.

The 4.3-liter V6 is suitable for trucks mostly used for hauling and light towing. The 5.3-liter V8 is rated to tow trailers weighing 11,000 pounds. The 6.2-liter offers more torque and more towing power. Owners who regularly tow trailers weighing more than 10,000 pounds might want to consider a Sierra HD model, however, because stability and braking performance rather than power is often the limiting factor.

The V6 and 5.3-liter V8 come standard with a 6-speed automatic. An 8-speed automatic comes with Sierra Denali, Sierra SLT, and any with the 6.2-liter engine. Four-wheel drive is available.

Lineup

2016 GMC Sierra 1500 models come in Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab versions. Crew Cabs are available with 5-foot, 8-inch or 6-foot, 6-inch beds. Double Cabs have the 6-foot, 6-inch bed. Regular Cabs offer 6-foot, 6-inch or 8-foot beds.

Three engines are available: 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8, and 6.2-liter V8. Four-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are offered.

Sierra comes standard with vinyl upholstery, Sierra SLE upgrades to cloth. Sierra SLT is fitted with leather upholstery, Sierra Denali gets upgraded leather.

Walkaround

The Sierra styling is bold, squared off with muscular fender flares and hood bulges. The new grilles look better on some trim levels than others, some verge on garish, looking like a cheese grater. New LEDs surround the headlights for a signature look at night.

The tailgate is damped, so it doesn’t slam down when opened, a great feature, and a locking tailgate is available. A small step in the rear bumper makes it easy to look in the bed or pluck something out, a feature that came from the original Avalanche. LED lighting illuminates the bed.

The Sierra Denali Ultimate has running boards that pivot rearward for access to the bed, a useful feature.

Interior

The Sierra cabin is comfortable, whether equipped with front buckets or the bench, and there is a sense of quality. The cloth seats offer good support and comfort and the fabric is stain-resistant. Heating and ventilation are available, though ventilated seats don’t seem to offer as much support.

The steering wheel tilts and telescopes, manually on lower models, electrically on upper lines. Power-adjustable pedals are available. Dual gloveboxes are provided.

The upright dash is bold yet elegant in design with door sills that are relatively low. The instrument panel on lower-level models is more detailed than that of the Silverado, and the Denali gets a unique display. Controls and displays are illuminated in blue with red backlighting that goes nicely with red pointers. The touchscreens work easily, and the Sierra is available with all the latest technology, including 4G LTE for a powerful Wi-Fi hotspot.

Crew Cabs offer almost as much room in the rear seats as in the front, though headrests are best suited for smaller people. Most rear seats fold up for cargo or dogs. Double Cab rear seats are best for children.

Driving Impressions

These trucks are quiet underway, when the windows are up, quiet enough to hear the seat cooling fan, which is not loud.

The engines can use Regular unleaded gas. When only light throttle is needed while cruising, four of the eight cylinders, or two of the six, deactivate for improved fuel economy.

Sierra two-wheel-drive trucks with the 4.3-liter V6 are EPA-rated at 18/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. Ram with V6 is comparable.

The 5.3-liter V8 is rated 15/21 mpg with 8-speed automatic and four-wheel drive, matching the 6.2-liter V8’s 15/21 mpg.

Summary

A GMC Sierra 1500 makes for an excellent pickup, as do a Ram 1500 or Ford F-150. All of them seem to be ahead of Toyota and Nissan. Choosing among them is as much about personal preferences, loyalty and styling, as anything else. Examine all carefully or just go with your favorite, you can’t go wrong.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
