Review Summary:

The is a segment leader, and for good reason.

Pros

* Perfect balance between a style statement and utility truck.

Cons

* Quite daunting to drive due to its sheer size.
* Limited room for rear seat passengers.

Looks

Monstrous – in one word. Right from the GMC signature front grille to its upright stance, the 2015 GMC Sierra pickup truck easily conveys its powerful personality. Somewhat simplistic character lines, pronounced shoulders and touch of matt chrome to its skin brings refinement to its appearance – beast in a tuxedo. Its a case of evolution of familiar design for the new GMC pickup truck.

Feels
Friendly is the word. Despite its humongous size, the 2015 GMC Sierra is reasonably friendly inside. American love for cup holders is blatantly visible in the cabin. Steering mounted gear stick and clearly placed control button for are easy to access. Use of durable materials, that do not feel cheap, is a definite point scorer. Multiple USB ports, memory card reader and even a 230volt 3 pin socket is built into the dashboard. Clean and functional, in a nut shell, is what the new interiors are about. As you climb up the spec ladder, leather seats, wood and aluminium trims become available.

Engineering
The all new 2015 GMC Sierra is the first pickup truck to be tested and receive a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA. Triple seals on its door frames reduces noise levels in the cabin. Twin tube shocks in the front and coil springs in the back are optimised for a comfortable ride as well as load carrying. Four wheel disc brakes with longer life and shorter stopping distance than the previous generation model, forward collision alert and lane departure warning systems are provided to make the experience of driving the new GMC Sierra fun and safe.
