The 2015 GMC Sierra combines all-day comfort and convenience with the performance and utility you expect from a pickup. It also has plenty of passenger space, making it a solid choice for a used daily driver. The 2015 GMC Sierra is one of the best used full-size pickup trucks you can buy. It earns high safety and reliability ratings, an upscale and spacious interior, good engine power, and balanced driving dynamics.
The Sierra isn’t just a muscular hauler – it’s fun and comfortable to drive, too. Steering is responsive, and the ride quality is smooth over most surfaces.
In addition to serving as the rugged workhorses of farmers, construction companies and small business owners, modern light-duty pickups are commonly seen handling daily driver and family vehicle duties. As such, manufacturers have made an effort to make them more comfortable as well as more fuel-efficient in recent years. That was certainly true with GMC’s redesign of its Sierra 1500 pickup last year.
The SLE adds stainless steel finish wheels, deep-tint glass, an “E-Z” lift/lower tailgate, LED cargo box lighting, power/heated mirrors, keyless entry, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, adjustable driver lumbar support, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, OnStar telematics, a color driver information display and an upgraded IntelliLink audio system (with an 8-inch color display, a CD player and voice control functionality). Clambering into the bed is also eased via clever steps and handholds built into each rear corner.
Overall ride and handling dynamics are commendable, making this truck a fine choice if daily driving is a must. The 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 feels robust structurally, compliant and comfortable over broken pavement. The Sierra is also very quiet, with road noise snuffed out and only a whisper of wind noise at freeway speeds. The GMC is steady around turns, and its steering is well weighted. Off road, the Sierra exhibits confidence-inspiring composure while negotiating rutted trails and challenging grades.
