The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Is More Expensive Than Before

Author: |

The GMC Sierra is one of the best light-duty trucks ever designed, but unfortunately, the 2021 model is a bit pricey. The base trim is $400 more expensive than the previous ones, according to GM Authority.

But this was just about the base trim. The customers who are willing to buy the Denali or the AT4 off-roar trim, should think about adding $500 and $600 to their budget. The Elevation trim costs $900 more and the SLE trim is $1,000 costlier.

Why, you ask? Well, apparently GM believes that its product is worthy since it’s one of the best light-duty trucks of the market and is a rival to Chevrolet Silverado 1500. We agree with it. On the other hand, the 2021 model has changed for good and every good change comes at a price. The new features include wireless smartphone connectivity for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The towing features have also been upgraded. We also get to have the optional packages and new colors.

The colors include Ebony Twilight Metallic, Hunter Metallic, Brownstone Metallic, and Cayenne Red Tintcoat replace Deep Mahogany Metallic, Smokey Quartz Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, and Red Quartz Tintcoat. The most expensive one is the White Frost Tricoat, adding another $1,095 to the price.


The base engine the Sierra 1500 is equipped with produces 285 hp and 413 Nm of torque. The 2.7-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is more powerful but not as strong as the 5.3-liter V8 which makes 355 hp and 512 Nm of torque. There is also a Duramax inline-six turbo diesel offered which generates 624 Nm of torque.
