GMC does an outstanding job of giving its customers plenty of options. In the early 1900s, General Motors set out to deliver a car for every purse and purpose, and GMC has followed suit with best-selling trucks like the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. The Sierra 1500 is renowned for its immense capability, luxurious interior, and seemingly endless customization options. It’s the perfect recipe for a work partner ready to tackle every demand of the day.
The 2024 Sierra 1500 returns to the GMC lineup with a new title as the most luxurious and innovative truck in the full-size segment. America’s beloved truck manufacturer strikes an incredible balance between outfitting the Sierra 1500 with the necessities and adding far more, transforming it into an opulent chariot dedicated to keeping you comfortable, engaged, and safe anytime you’re in the driver’s seat. Most impressive is that this incredible combination doesn’t come at a premium, with the Sierra 1500 starting at $46,700 for the 2024 model year.[a]
As expected, GMC sweetens the Sierra 1500’s lineup with an expansive catalog of upgrades, add-ons, and trims that answer every driving, towing, style, and performance need. There’s undoubtedly a 2024 Sierra 1500 for everyone, whether you’re looking for a work truck like the Sierra 1500 Pro or a road warrior like the Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition that can manage your workweek and answer the call of adventure on the weekends. But what else can you expect from the Sierra 1500 in 2024? It’s time to find out.
GMC recognizes that drivers have different power, performance, and capability needs, which is why you see four potent engines in the 2024 Sierra 1500 lineup. The truck comes standard with a 2.7L TurboMax engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, which is ideal for entry-level models like the Sierra 1500 Pro. The combination produces 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque, making the truck agile and responsive. Moreover, it gives the truck its best payload rating of 2,240 lbs and a maximum trailering capacity of 9,400 lbs.
As you climb the Sierra lineup, GMC gives you a choice between a pair of V8 engines and the Duramax turbo-diesel, all paired with a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. The 5.3L V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management gives the Sierra 1500 a significant increase in performance, pushing it to an output of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine gives the truck an increased towing capacity of up to 11,200 lbs.
The 6.2L V8 engine is the most potent of the pair, churning out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. With this output, GMC only offers the 6.2L V8 with four-wheel drive, ensuring you can take full advantage of the Sierra 1500’s power. As far as capability, you can expect to tow heavier loads with a 13,000 lb trailering rating and enjoy a payload of 1,820 lbs.
The last option in the 2024 Sierra 1500’s powertrain lineup is the legendary Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel inline-six-cylinder engine. Offering best-in-class output, the Duramax roars to life and produces 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque. This translates to an incredible tow rating of 13,200 lbs and a maximum payload of 1,890 lbs. Most notably, the Duramax is the powertrain of choice for the Sierra 1500 AT4X and AT4X AEV Edition trims, with GMC also offering the 6.2L V8 as an option.
One of the greatest advantages of owning a truck like the 2024 Sierra 1500 is knowing GMC gives you all the necessary tools to make your job easier. These tools extend beyond a capable powertrain, which is a given with any Sierra 1500 engine. Instead, they include functional features that heighten your experience and transform the truck into an invaluable work partner.
The 2024 Sierra 1500 is outfitted with the revolutionary, industry-leading MultiPro tailgate and CarbonPro composite bed. The combination is incredible and recognizes the many demands drivers put on the truck bed and tailgate. GMC has designed two complementary tools to meet those demands, exceed our expectations, and make work more manageable. The MultiPro tailgate accomplishes this by offering six unique functions that make hauling and accessing your cargo easier than ever. These functions include load stops that keep longer items in place, a full-width step, and a work surface that folds down to give you easier access to the bed.
Beyond the MultiPro tailgate and CarbonPro composite bed, the Sierra 1500’s functional features move inside to help you confidently take advantage of its towing capacity. The 2024 Sierra 1500 offers a ProGrade Trailering System, which makes towing any sized load more manageable. The upgrade includes GMC’s entire suite of trailering technologies, from the In-Vehicle Trailering App to driver-assist tools like Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert and GCW Alert.
The In-Vehicle Trailering App is one of the first of its kind and lets you create five custom trailer profiles via the Sierra’s expansive center touchscreen display or the myGMC Mobile App on your smartphone. You can access pre-departure checklists, monitor trailer tire pressure, and check the trailer's lights with GMC’s automatic Trailer Light Sequence, eliminating the need for a spotter. You can also use tools like GCW Alert to ensure safe towing. This feature can help determine if the weight of the Sierra 1500 and accompanying trailer are within the truck’s towing abilities.
Work hard, play harder is a mantra the 2024 Sierra 1500 lives by. GMC designs the truck as the perfect work partner throughout the week and an epic adventurer on the weekends. You’ll see this adventurous spirit in trims like the AT4X and AT4X AEV Edition. These options build on the Sierra’s legendary capability but add off-road-oriented components that let you test that capability long after the pavement ends.
The Sierra 1500 AT4X sets the stage and rolls off GMC’s factory floor with a potent 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine that delivers 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque. Knowing the AT4X is destined to answer the call of the wild, GMC outfits the truck with Multimatic DSSV dampers and the segment’s first-ever front and rear electronic-locking differentials. The combination gives the AT4X an edge over its rivals. Still, GMC refuses to stop there and includes the trailering package and advanced technologies like Hitch Guidance, a 13.4-inch horizontal touchscreen display, and wireless smartphone integration with Google Built-In.
While the Sierra 1500 AT4X is incredibly tough, the Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition is tougher and showcases GMC’s partnership with American Expedition Vehicles. AEV is renowned for its high-quality, rugged parts, and the Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition gets the full treatment. The AEV model rolls off the production line with high-strength stamped steel bumpers at the front and rear, with integrated recovery points and room for a winch. The undercarriage is protected by five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates that give you the confidence to rock crawl and navigate more technical terrain.
You’ll find plenty of other exclusive details on the AT4X AEV Edition that differentiate it. For example, the truck features off-road rocker panel protectors and removable bolt-on steps that make ingress and egress easier when you aren’t on the trail. Gloss black door handles and a black tailgate decal add to the truck’s rugged aesthetic and complement its beefier, 18-inch Salta Wheels finished in gloss black with AEV’s signature recessed valves.
