With roots that reach back to the first Chevrolet pickup truck in 1918, the GMC Sierra is one of the yearly top performers in the pickup truck segment. Within the Sierra's lineup is the big-daddy of them all, the GMC Sierra 3500HD. Over the years, this work-prepped truck has become less utilitarian, and the all-new 2015 model is the best combination of work and pleasure to date.

What's New For 2015

For 2015, the Sierra 3500HD receives a redesign that puts it along the styling line of its little brother, the Sierra 1500. This redesign include all-new sheet metal and a refined interior.

Choosing Your Sierra 3500HD

Because of its roots as a work truck, the 2015 Sierra 3500HD is offered in a variety of body styles, and picking the right one for you is the first step in selecting your truck. The body options include a regular cab with an eight-foot bed; a double cab with an eight-foot bed; and a crew cab with a six-foot, six-inch or eight-foot bed. You also get to choose if dual rear wheels or single rear wheels are best for you -- the former is best for heavy hauling and the latter is easier to handle for day-to-day driving.

On top of the bed and cab configurations, the 2015 Sierra 3500HD has a range of drivetrains to choose from. The pickup comes standard with a 6-liter Vortec V8 that produces 300 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, rear-wheel drive, and a six-speed, Hydra-Matic 6L90 auto transmission. Available as options are four-wheel drive, a Duramax, turbo-diesel 6.6-liter V8 that produces 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque, and an Allison 1000 six-speed auto transmission.

With the body configuration and drivetrains in place, you get to choose the level of luxury you like from four trim levels:

Work Truck

The Work Truck trim level starts things off with a base price of $33,060, and gives you the bare necessities in a pickup truck. This trim comes standard with the 6-liter V8 engine, the trailering package, 18-inch steel wheels, black door handles, a chrome grille surround, a CornerStep rear bumper for easy entry into the bed, chrome bumpers, an AM/FM audio system with a 4.2-inch display, four speakers and USB ports, cruise control, power door locks, vinyl upholstery for easy cleaning, and manual air conditioning.

SLE

The SLE trim level brings the Sierra 3500HD to a level that is more acceptable for a daily driver instead of a work truck. This starts out at $38,780 and adds in body-color moldings and door handles, LED lights in the cargo box, tinted windows, the EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate, heated mirrors, 18-inch aluminum wheels, an AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM audio system with IntelliLink and six speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio control, power windows, keyless entry, cloth seating, and a rear-vision camera.

SLT

The SLT trim starts things off at $46,400 and adds even more options to satisfy the needs of families that will use the Sierra 3500HD as a day-to-day vehicle. It comes standard in the double cab configuration, and on top of the SLE it adds chrome door handles, fog lights, projector headlights with LED signatures, body-color moldings with chrome accents, a 110-volt power outlet, a six-speaker audio system with an eight-inch color touchscreen, Bluetooth audio streaming, Pandora Internet radio and voice control, dual-zone auto climate control, power-adjustable pedals, remote start, leather seating with heated front seats, and a Universal Home remote.

Denali

The Denali trim level pushes the GMC Sierra near the realm of luxury, and its $60,640 price tag indicates as much. It comes standard with premium features like daytime running lights, body-color CornerStep rear bumper, a body-color front bumper, rear wheelhouse liners, a Bose audio system with six speakers, AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM capabilities, 10-way power driver and passenger seats, heated and cooled front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

CarsDirect Tip

Choose the Sierra that best suits your needs and budget -- if you're purchasing near the top of the lineup, we recommend a fully-loaded SLT that is much more affordable than the Denali, and has nearly all of its features.
