The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is about to arrive, and it will be a carryover model. This truck received a total refresh inside and out last year, and for 2023, we can expect some additional features through trims. The current Sierra was introduced in 2019 and is still a relatively new model.
However, the redesigned Ford F-150 and the upcoming Ram 1500 will definitively shake up the market, and GMC’s answer is to unveil the new Denali Ultimate and AT4X trims. Like before, the Sierra 1500 will continue to be available with a turbocharged 2.7-liter 4-cylinder, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-6, a 5.3-liter V8, and a 6.2-liter V8.
2023 GMC Sierra 1500 Design
The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 will get some mild exterior upgrades. This truck is still one of the most compact in the class, featuring the same attractive look. For 2023, the exterior will include a new grille and updated headlights. The grille design will vary depending on the trim level, and the headlights are slimmer and more expressive than before.
The new Sierra is available in Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab configurations. Regular Cab models offer a standard box or long box, while Double Cab models get a standard box only. The most favorite is a Crew Cab truck that comes with short box or standard box.
Inside, the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 has more benefits compared to its predecessor. Generally speaking, facelift has been made and the manufacturer added some new technology. For 2023, the dash has also been reconfigured, and it host an updated 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and 13.4-inch diagonal color touchscreen.
On top of that, the GMC Sierra 1500 is also available with a 15-inch head-up display (HUD). Anyway, there should also be more amenities available on upper trim. The Crew Cab model is still the best choice for families who need a pickup that offers an SUV-like cabin.
