The 2010 GMC Sierra lineup offers a dizzying array of bed styles, cabs, powertrains, trims, and features.
ConsumerGuide ranks the 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 and Hybrid "among the best large pickup trucks for refinement and available features." Cars.com notes there are "many choices" when it comes to the 2010 GMC Sierra 1500; available trims are Work, SL, SLE1, SLE2, SLT, and Denali. According to Kelley Blue Book, the "multiplicity of trim levels...allow you to fine-tune your Sierra."
For starters, the 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 comes in a plain work edition that carries a base price of $21,000, along with an AM/FM radio (and a radio-delete option); vinyl seats; roll-up windows; and manual door locks.
From there, luxury-truck fans can turn the Sierra into a $50,000 temple of torque with the big V-8 engine and features like Bluetooth; XM real-time traffic; DVD navigation; leather seating; power glass overhead and behind the head (the rear pickup window); and bling like big 22-inch wheels, special grilles, body-color trim, and bedliners. There's even an All-Terrain off-road package, with all sorts of tow hooks, skid plates, other protection, and rescue fittings.
The Sierra Hybrid is pricey at $39,000 base-it would be refreshing to see a Hybrid work truck below $30,000, but don't count on it-and can pass $50,000 when the upscale version is selected. Cars.com reports "standard amenities include automatic climate control, steering wheel audio controls and Bluetooth connectivity." It also can be outfitted with DVD navigation and a high-end audio system with XM NavTraffic. Automobile reports the "premium trim package adds leather trim, power front bucket seat adjusters, a center console, a Bose sound system with navigation, a hard bed cover, and several minor convenience items."
USB connectivity has been added to most Sierra audio systems for 2010.
The 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 stays true to its roots in the blue-collar world, but moves right up the features ladder in Denali and Hybrid versions.
