2023 Sierra 1500 Trims and MSRP

We expect there to be eight trims available in our showroom when the 2023 Sierra 1500 arrives: Pro, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, AT4X, Denali, and Denali Ultimate.

This selection offers you a huge choice of features. Still, you should keep in mind that not all cab and cargo bed configurations are available in each trim. It may be best to consider what configuration will suit you best before choosing your desired trim.


The base Pro trim has a starting MSRP of $35,400. Prices rise steadily through the trim lineup, with the range-topping Denali Ultimate starting at $81,900.


The AT4 trim is the one to go for if you plan to do a lot of off-roading. It includes a 2-inch suspension lift and hill descent control. The AT4X was an all-new trim for 2022.

Building on the AT4, the 2023 model adds the more powerful 6.2-liter V-8 engine, front and rear locking differentials, and ventilated and power-adjustable front seats.


The Denali was the top trim in the Sierra 1500 lineup, but GMC added the Denali Ultimate with the 2022 model.

The Denali Ultimate gets a signature chrome grille and 22-inch gloss black wheels. Inside the cabin, you can relax in full-grain leather seats and admire the wooden trim.

GMC Sierra Exterior Design

The Sierra 1500’s exterior is unmistakable, thanks to its bold, pronounced features. The premium quality of this truck is underscored with chrome accents on some of the higher trims, which are sure to get you noticed around town, at work, or at play.

You can also select from various color options to give your Sierra a unique twist and personal flair.

2023 Sierra Interior

The Sierra’s interior can be whatever you desire. Whether you need a functional design with upscale flashes for the job, all the luxury features in a family-friendly cabin, or a combination just for fun, the Sierra 1500 can make it happen.

You can choose from three cab options to suit your budget and lifestyle. The first is the Regular Cab, which offers seating for up to three people in one row. It’s the perfect choice if you plan to use the Sierra as a work truck. The Double Cab includes a rear row of seating, boosting the cab’s capacity to six. The rear seats give adults enough space to travel comfortably on short journeys.

The Crew Cab is your best option if you regularly carry adult passengers in the rear row. It provides 43 inches of legroom—plenty of space for your tall passengers to stretch out.

At the rear, you’ve also got three cargo bed options to choose from. The Regular Cab is paired with an 8-foot-long cargo box to give you maximum storage capacity. The shorter beds measure 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet 6 inches in length. You can pair either of these beds with the Double or Crew cabs.

2023 GMC Sierra Engine and Performance

The 2023 GMC Sierra will have a diverse engine lineup, allowing you to choose the one best suited to your lifestyle. The base engine is a 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-four that pumps out 310 horsepower. It’s a smart choice if you’ll be driving your truck mainly on city roads and doing some light towing and hauling.

If you need a more capable powertrain for work or to accelerate quicker on the highway, you may want to look at the 5.3-liter V-8 or the 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel option. The V-8 can put out 355 horsepower, while the diesel churns out 277 horsepower. You can go even higher with the massive 6.2-liter V-8, which cranks out 420 horsepower and will easily handle whatever you’re hauling in your cargo bed.

The diesel engine achieves the highest towing capacity for any diesel engine in a full-sized pickup at 13,000 pounds.

The Sierra’s fuel economy varies depending on the powertrain configuration you choose. This pickup delivers between 19 mpg and 23 mpg on city roads and between 26 mpg and 30 mpg on the highway. The only exception is the two off-road specialist trims, which have significantly lower fuel economy ratings but make up for that in style.

GMC Sierra Tech Features

The Sierra 1500 got some cool tech upgrades for the 2022 model year, giving you the option of accessing a 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment system and a 12-inch instrument display. This GMC pickup also features smartphone compatibility thanks to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth and USB ports.

You can upgrade to an impressive 12-speaker premium sound system and wireless device charging. Another handy option is the Wi-Fi hotspot, which can help you stay in touch with work colleagues, friends, or family wherever you happen to be.

GMC Sierra Safety

The Sierra 1500 can be equipped with a variety of innovative driver safety features, such as forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking. You can also get adaptive cruise control, which can adjust your speed on the highway, and includes lane departure warning.

GMC offers various safety features specifically designed for pickup drivers who do a lot of towing. A range of trailering technology helps you stay safe on the road when you’re hauling something behind. You can access up to 14 different camera views with GMC’s surround-view camera to keep track of where your trailer is when you’re reversing into position or maneuvering in a tight spot.
