Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
The new-for-2019 Sierra 1500 remains in robust supply across the country. Crew Cab models are easiest to find and most likely to be discounted. On the other hand, locating a Regular Cab may take some patience. The line-topping Denali isn't usually discounted at all by dealers.
The old-style Sierra 1500 continues for 2019 with fewer trim choices as the Sierra 1500 Limited (covered in a separate entry).
The carryover 2020 Sierra 1500 started arriving at dealers last month. Supplies will firm up over the next few months. A carbon fiber bed is now available on Denali and AT4 models.
Current factory offers will remain in effect through October 31, 2019 and are available nationally unless otherwise noted.
Huge savings await:
GMC now offers 18% off the MSRP of 2019 Sierra SLE Double Cab and SLE Crew Cab models. For current GM customers, the discount increases to 20%. The discount on the 2019 SLT Crew is a straight 15%.
These offers translate into huge savings on a vehicle of this price.
As for the 2020 Sierra 1500, the Double Cab (with 2.7-liter engine) comes with a $4,500 rebate for all buyers. There's no cash offers on the other configurations this month.
Go newer on a lease:
As is sometimes the case during model transitions, lease offers on the 2020 Sierra are actually better than the 2019 offers.
You can now lease a 2020 SLE Double Cab 4x2 from $359 for 39 months (10,000 miles a year) with $3,279 due at signing. The effective monthly cost works out to $443, a very good value for a truck of this price.
0% APR+ cash:
Instead of the cash offers on a 2019 Sierra, you can get 0% financing for 72 months on the SLE Crew and SLT Crew. The deal comes with $1,500 bonus cash on the SLE only.
There are no APR promos yet on the 2020 Sierra 1500.
This ranks as an excellent deal based on our expert analysis of: vehicle price, length of lease term, amount due at signing, monthly payment, etc.
