5 reasons to buy the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500

1. Ample engine options

Whether you're looking for a work truck for the farm, an off-roader that can hold its own on dirt tracks, or a truck to haul your camper, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 has an engine that will be fit for the job. The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 comes standard with a 285-hp 4.3L V6 engine. You can also choose from four additional available engines, ranging from a 310-hp 2.7L turbocharged four-cylinder to a 420-hp 6.2L V8.

2. Solid towing and hauling

If you're shopping for a truck, chances are you'll be hauling dirt, towing a boat, or doing some type of work that requires torque and engine might. The 2019 GMC Sierra is up for the challenge. With the base 4.2L V6 engine, the 2019 Sierra 1500 can tow up to an estimated 12,200 pounds with the crew cab when properly equipped.

The same V6 engine can haul up to an estimated 2,010 pounds when properly equipped, giving you plenty of strength to get the job done.

3. Huge bed capacity

The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 has a voluminous bed that will come in handy whether you're hauling hay, loading up bikes for a day on the trails, or packing camping equipment. There are three bed sizes: 5ft 8 in, 6ft 6in, or 8ft. Each length offers more cargo space than other vehicles of a similar length, thanks to higher walls and a more streamlined layout. Total bed cargo space ranges from 62.9 cu-ft to 89.1 cu-ft. Since the GMC comes standard with 12 cargo tie-downs, too, you'll have no problem securing even large loads.

4. Spacious interior

After a hard day at work, you might want to take your friends out to dinner or run the teens to soccer practice. The 2019 Sierra 1500 is up for that as long as you choose the Double Cab or Crew Cab layouts, which come standard with seating for six. The Double Cab comes with nearly 35in of rear leg room, while the Crew Cab has a downright generous 43.4in of rear leg room—plenty to stretch out after a tough day or accommodate rear-facing car seats for your younger passengers.

5. Straightforward tech

Great music or engaging podcasts can make a work day or long road trip pass in an instant. The 2019 GMC Sierra makes it easy to stay connected with a straightforward infotainment system. It also comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen, along with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, and Bluetooth® integration.
