Power, strength and capability are three of the top selling points of a truck. One pickup that possesses all of these qualities is the 2017 GMC Sierra. While it just landed on the market, this truck is already impressing truck enthusiasts due to its list of upgrades and changes to an already impressive list of features. It has gained 18” off-road tires, cap-less fuel fill, and Android Auto smartphone apps. Or one of the best-looking and best-equipped full-size pickups on the market, the 2017 GMC Sierra is a top choice.

V8 engines for all trims

The GMC Sierra has been veering towards V8 engines for several years. Now, V8s power all trim levels of the Sierra's 2017 lineup. What does this mean? More power, strength and capability. Those trims that house the 5.3-liter V8 come paired to either a six-speed automatic or eight-speed automatic transmission, along with a tow/haul mode that consumers are very pleased with. With the eight-speed automatic, trailer towing is impressive at 11,100 pounds.

But, the 2017 Sierra can do even better. For consumers seeking the most in heavy-duty strength, the 6.2-liter V8 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission is the ultimate choice. This duo roars a hefty 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque and has a maximum towing capacity of 12,000 pounds.

Consumers are also pleased with the Sierra's exterior features that include:

  • Trailer hitching and wiring
  • Step running boards
  • 17-, 18- or 20-inch steel or alloy wheels

Consumers are kept safe in the 2017 GMC Sierra

No matter where you take the 2017 GMC Sierra, safety will follow. The Sierra comes with safety equipment, like four-wheel antilock brakes (ABC), traction and stability control, and front and rear airbags. Other notable items include automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, and turn-signal integrated mirrors. There are also safety warning systems like lane-departure and forward-collision warnings, automatic collision-mitigation braking, and safety-alert driver's seat. Consumers are also intrigued by the Sierra's teen driving mode that helps protect teen drivers (and their guardians) with things like audio-limiting and speed-limiting features.

The OnStar emergency telematics system is also favored by consumers due to its many features, like automatic crash notification, emergency assistance button, remote door unlocking, and stolen vehicle locator.

The Sierra Excels Off Road

As good as the 2017 GMC Sierra is on road, its just as worthy off road. This is especially true when consumers opt for the Z71 Off-Road package. This package equips the Sierra with off-road content, such as:

  • Auto-locking rear differential
  • Off-road shock absorbers
  • Underbody shielding
  • Spray-in bedliner
  • 22” wheels
  • All-terrain tires

The Sierra boasts premium content in the Denali trim

There are several trims that make up the GMC Sierra's 2017 lineup, but for those wanting a fully-loaded truck, the top Denali trim is the ideal choice. With it comes a wide range of premium items, including:

  • Power-adjustable pedals
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Driver memory driver settings
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Rearview camera
