2024 GMC Sierra 1500 Review

The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 aims to be the ultra-premium pickup to beat, but it isn’t quite able to separate itself from the Ford and Ram offerings. The Yukon-inspired interior layout is a nice place to spend time, but isn’t quite as posh as the crosstown rivals. The truck’s shared underpinnings with the Silverado 1500 do bring some genuine capability however, with a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 lbs and maximum payload ratings of up to 2240 lbs. The 6.2-liter V-8 also remains one of our favorite truck engines.


  • Wide powertrain options list with diesel offering

  • Excellent payload and towing capacities

  • Expansive driver assist package as standard


  • Less refined than its rivals

  • Harsher ride than expected
