Powered by a 4.3-liter V-6 with optional V-8 engines, the Sierra delivers 195 horsepower and has an EPA-estimated 15/20 mpg city/highway. The Sierra 1500 is available in five different models, the WT, SL, SLE, SLT, and XFE, with the 2500 and 3500 offering three models including the WT, SLE, and SLT. Hybrid and Denali models are also available.
