Overview

Just as GMC ramps up production of the all-new Sierra 1500, the existing body style continues into 2019 as the Sierra 1500 Limited. This truck is indeed limited in which body styles and options it offers. It features the double cab, standard-length bed, 5.3-liter V8 engine, and the latest technology in infotainment.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited is offered in far fewer features and configurations than in previous years as this current generation’s production winds down.

Choosing Your GMC Sierra 1500 Limited

The body configuration is limited to a single spec: a double cab and a 6.5-foot bed, each of which are the median of their selected groups. The same down-the-middle mentality is applied to the powertrain. A 5.3-liter V8 producing 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque rated for 9,400 pounds mated to a six-speed automatic transmission is the only setup available, eschewing the V6 and the larger V8.

Two-wheel drive is standard, though the four-wheel-drive system featuring a transfer case and additional protection underneath is available on both trims. It costs $4,000 more on base Sierra models and $3,400 on SLE models. When ordered with the base trim level, the system is operated by a floor-mounted shift lever; the higher trim gets a dash-mounted rotary knob and an automatic four-wheel-drive setting.

The 2WD setup is slightly more efficient than the 4WD model, achieving an EPA-estimated 15 miles per gallon city, 22 mpg highway, and 17 combined. The 4WD model gets up to 15/21/17 mpg (city/highway/combined).

There are two trim levels: the base Sierra and the SLE.

Base

The base Sierra 1500 Limited is priced from $36,595 (all prices include the $1,495 destination charge) and is equipped with chrome bumpers and grille surround, a 60/40-split cloth seat bench, vinyl flooring, and a trailering kit with hitch and connections. Beyond these traditional pickup truck traits, the Sierra also includes a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen that incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 3.5-inch digital display in the gauge cluster, high-intensity-discharge (HID) projector beams with LED signature lighting, and a torsion-bar assisted tailgate as standard equipment.

The Convenience Package ($835) brings keyless entry for the doors and tailgate, power and heated outside mirrors, a 110-volt AC power outlet, and LED cargo box lighting. The Essentials Package ($1,295) includes a tonneau cover, rubber floor mats, and chrome side steps, while the Protection Package ($385) adds all-weather floor mats and splash guards.

The Elevation Edition is also offered for $2,800. It includes the features of the Convenience Package and notably replaces the steel 17-inch wheels with black painted 20-inch aluminum wheels, adds OnStar, 4G WiFi, LED fog lights, and body-colored bumpers and trim pieces all around. This package limits the exterior color selection to four shades of black, blue, gray, and white. SiriusXM can be ordered separately but must be joined with OnStar and 4G WiFi for a total of $370.

SLE

The SLE trim starts at $41,795 and includes the features of the Convenience Package plus 17-inch bright aluminum wheels, an eight-inch display that includes SiriusXM and HD radio in addition to the smaller-sized unit’s tech, and a slightly larger gauge cluster display at 4.2 inches diagonally.

The SLE also gains access to unique packages such as the SLE Value Package ($1,880) that includes a 10-way power driver’s seat, remote start, tilting and telescoping steering wheel, an integrated trailer brake controller, fog lights, a rear-window defogger, and a dual-zone climate control system. A Black Pack ($3,225) brings 22-inch black painted wheels and black painted side steps. The Chrome Package ($3,295) adds 22-inch chrome wheels and chrome assist steps.

The Off-Road Suspension Package ($350), better known as Z71, requires 4WD and includes uprated shocks, additional undercarriage protection, a high-capacity air cleaner, Z71 emblems, and hill descent control. However, it also requires an upgrade in wheel size, of which there are many to choose from and can add up to $2,995 to the bottom line.

The Essentials Package and Protection Package are still available.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited carries on with its more traditional silhouette. The SLE trim equipped with the SLE Value Package and the Off-Road Suspension Package presents a very capable truck with the ideal modern feature list. Because it’s the final year of this generation, expect big price reductions.

A pickup for the more conservative buyer. When GMC released the completely redesigned 2019 Sierra 1500, it recognized there was a chance it would take a little getting used to from buyers, so it held onto the previous model year’s looks with the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited.

While the Sierra 1500 Limited may look different, slipping inside shows there's not much else separating them, as they have similar engine options, interior tech, advanced safety features, and more.

One engine option. While the all-new Sierra 1500 is offered with a choice between a 4.3-liter V6, a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, a 5.3-liter V8, a 6.2-liter V8, and (eventually) a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, the Sierra 1500 Limited only gets the tried-and-true 5.3-liter V8 engine.

This motor makes 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque and has a 9,400-pound towing capacity. The Ford F-150 maxes out at 12,000 pounds, the Toyota Tundra at 10,200 pounds, and the Nissan Titan at 9,740.

Its rugged nature owes a lot to its simpler suspension setup that lacks the coil spring system some of its rivals, like the F-150, have. This compromises ride quality for sturdiness, so there's a trade-off in comfort.

Points for technology. Pickup trucks are rarely beacons of technological advancement. The GMC Sierra 1500 Limited bucks this trend with its 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system in its range-topping SLE trim that packs standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration.

While the Ford F-150 matches this smartphone integration, the Toyota Tundra offers no smartphone integration. The only pickup that offers these systems in a more accessible manner is the Nissan Titan, which offers Apple CarPlay and Android auto as standard features.


GMC Sierra 1500 Limited

No safety features. The redesigned Sierra 1500 upped its game in the safety department. Front and rear park assist, lane change alert, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are available across the entire range in an extra-cost package, while automatic emergency breaking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning become available higher up the trim range.

Unfortunately, the Sierra 1500 Limited gets access to none of these active safety features, which puts them way behind rivals. The Tundra offers many of these as standard, while other competitors make them available in option packages.

Final thoughts. With simplistic looks, one engine option, and two trim levels, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited is a streamlined way to get into a pickup truck. With good amounts of technology and plenty of capability, the Sierra 1500 Limited is a solid buy.
