The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is available in six trim levels: base, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, and Denali. They are available in various cabin and bed configurations. The base is relatively thinly equipped, although there are a few options available. For the typical truck buyer, we recommend that buyers look at the SLE cut-off minimum, as it has features beyond what you want in a single truck. The version that finds the best balance between amenities and functionality is the SLT cut-off level, while the Elevation is a cosmetic package that is only available in a double cab configuration. Meanwhile, the AT4 offers an edge in off-road capabilities and the leading Denali packages on luxury-oriented features.
2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Features
Configurations are as follows: Regular taxis are offered with a standard bed, double cabins come only with the standard bed, and crew cabins are available with a standard bed or a short bed. Be aware that not all cut-off levels are available with all configurations. All taxi configurations are available with four-wheel drive.
The basic Sierra comes with a 4.3-liter V6, a six-speed automatic gearbox, 17-inch steel wheels, automatic xenon headlights, power locks, a locking tailgate, power windows, air air conditioning, cruise control, a reversing camera, a tiltable steering wheel, Bluetooth, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, USB connection, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration and a six-language sound system. The Sierra Convenience package adds a remote keyless entry, a tailgate rear door, heated mirrors, a 110-volt plug and an LED chest of drawers lighting. The Elevation trim includes those items plus special 20-inch black alloy wheels, LED fog lights and body-colored exterior. The SLE trim pad adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a cushioning tailgate, a leather wheel, and an 8-inch touchscreen upgrade.
2019 GMC offers a Driver Alert 1 package for SLE and higher trims. This includes driver assistance functions such as parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic warning. There is also the Driver Alert 2 package that further adds the crash warning, with automatic emergency brake and track maintenance. GMC gives the AT4 similar features to the SLT, but with a 2-inch sanding, standard four-wheel drive with a two-speed transmission, disk plates, Rancho shock absorbers, 18-inch tires with terrain tires, hill descent control, and a site-select traction control system.
At the top of the range is the Denali, which features most of the lower trim features and has all available driver assistance features. It also features a head screen, a rear camera mirror, exclusive adaptive suspension dampers, 20-inch wheels, and unique interior appointments. The MultiPro power aid steps are only available on the Denali.
2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Interior
The Sierra Denali is purposeful and without frills, and is designed for convenience. It is spacious and easy to get in and out. Shorter drivers should not hold the hood and the relationship between the steering wheel and the seat when the seat is lifted. Previous Sierra owners will feel right at home as there is not much innovation in the cabin. We like the switches and all the buttons are of good size. Strangely, the Traction Select button is unmarked, and most pushbuttons are just a little smaller than what we expect from a full-size pickup. The gripping handles and large door openings flash in and out even when parked in a quiet direction. Our Denali test truck had upstream side steps. Shorter drivers and passengers will love them, but larger drivers may find themselves on the road.
Both the seat and steering wheel have a wide range of adjustment, but the position of both places the driver in an awkward position. To lift the seat, pull your legs closer to the wheel. Higher drivers will not pay attention, but shorter drivers will struggle to balance visibility with ergonomics. The front main room, shoulder room, and legroom are plentiful; the cabin better-suited drivers. The rear seat of the crew-cab Sierra is absolutely massive and has significant legroom. Three full-sized adults can easily fit back shoulder to shoulder.
GM’s infotainment system has sharp graphics and responsive touchscreen buttons. The simple menu structure and quick command responses make it easy to use the system. It’s not a very large touchscreen, but it does the job. The premium sound system has excellent bass and mids but does not have sharp heights. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard. Our smartphones are connected to Bluetooth and quickly indexed our music. There are USB ports on the dash, in the center console and in the back seat. The drawer is in a convenient place and can hold big phones. Our truck has an automatic emergency brake, track maintenance, front and rear sensors, and blind spot monitoring with the rear cross-traffic warning. Everyone except the avenue system worked it satisfactorily, so we turned it off. Adaptive cruise control is remarkably unavailable.
