Major changes included:

The Sierra 1500 represented a complete overhaul of GMC's full-size pickup truck. While it maintained its ruggedness and capability off-road, the newest pickup was geared more towards regular on-road driving. The interior was improved to make the drive more comfortable, with plenty of cab space and storage.

The 1500 also got a lighter frame, better crash test ratings, and more powerful performance. The Vortec 4.3-liter V6 carried over from the old model, but there were also three new V8 options: a 4.8-liter V8 with 225 horsepower, a 5.3-liter V8 with 270 horsepower, and a 6.5-liter turbodiesel V8 with 215 horsepower.

Four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmissions were both available, along with available four-wheel drive. The pickup's bed was bolted into the frame to prevent theft.
