2024 GMC Sierra 1500 Review: Prices, Specs, and Photos

The 2024 GMC Sierra is a full-size pickup truck, which we cover here in popular 1500 form. Shop it against the related Chevrolet Silverado, plus the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150. 

It might not fit in your garage, but the 2024 GMC Sierra is a strong choice otherwise thanks to its broad lineup and available in-cabin tech. It’s a 6.2 out of 10 on the TCC scale. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

GMC isn’t expected to make many changes for the 2024 model year.

The Sierra comes in three basic forms: regular, extended, and crew cab bodies, some of which are available with two different bed-length options. Most buyers opt for a crew cab. Regardless, each Sierra version is handsome if somewhat imposing thanks to a huge, tall grille surrounded by complex, clamp-shape headlights. Off-road versions are distinguished by a unique bumper design and red tow hooks, plus meaty tires. The dressy Denali looks sharp with its extra brightwork outside. 

Inside, GMC has two interior layouts: lower-end models have a simple dash that carries over from the last few years. Most versions have a fresh layout with a big 13.4-inch touchscreen, which uses nearly twice the real estate of the standard setup. 

Four engine choices start with a 310-hp turbo-4 that offers good power if not exactly amazing thrift. Available V-8s include naturally aspirated 5.3- and 6.2-liter units, while a costly but smooth 3.0-liter turbodiesel is also on offer. The base engine sends power to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission, while a somewhat clumsy 10-speed is included otherwise. 

The Sierra sticks with a conventional independent front and leaf-sprung rear suspension setup, which rides well enough—and even better with the adaptive dampers on the Denali. 

If you can find a trail wide enough, the Sierra can happily clamber down it even in its most basic form. The AT4X version features a 2-inch higher ride height and trick Multimatic dampers that soak up big bumps. 

The basic Pro version serves fleet buyers with decent comfort, while SLE and Elevation models are geared more toward non-commercial users. In crew cab form, all have great seats up front and a stretch-out back seat. Interior materials mostly impress—as they should for these prices, since a well-equipped mid-level model can easily top $60,000 with a few options. The widescreen fitted to all but the Pro version can be upgraded with trick Google Maps integration that works just like your home computer. 

Standard crash-avoidance tech includes the basics: automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors. Adaptive cruise control is optional, while higher-end trim levels can be outfitted with GMC’s impressive SuperCruise system for stints of true hands-off driving on thousands of miles of mapped highways. 

How much does the 2024 GMC Sierra cost?

Pull out your pocketbook. While a 2024 GMC Sierra Pro may cost less than $40,000 to start, adding options will hike the price substantially. Budget at least $55,000 for an SLE or Elevation with a few options. Denali trucks can easily reach toward $80,000.

Where is the 2024 GMC Sierra made?

Depending on the configuration, it can be built in Michigan, Indiana, or Mexico.
