Offered in a wide variety of bed and cab sizes, the 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full size pickup whose brawny and solid styling match its powerful engine offerings and innovative features built with towing and hauling in mind.
The Sierra's choice of engines ranges from a 195 horsepower 4.3 liter V6, up to a newly available 403 horsepower 6.2-liter V8. 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive platforms receive power through a new 6-speed automatic transmission with V8 engines. The V6 gets GMC's 4-speed automatic.
Fuel economy on the Sierra ranges from 12 miles per gallon city with the largest V8, to 20 miles per gallon highway with the V6.
While the Sierra's power plants can pull massive loads, it is the integrated brake controller that safely puts them to rest. For those towing heavy loads, the brake controller syncs trailer braking to the truck's braking and is adjustable for load sizes.
Base MSRP for the 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 is $18,575(19,375). A full loaded 4 wheel drive quad cab will cost around $50,000. All Sierra's come with GM's generous 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
With a powerful array of engine choices and innovative features, the 2009 GMC Sierra is a highly capable full size truck that's great for the job site or escaping to the mountains for the weekend.
