The 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 is a worthy competitor among fresher rivals,
bolstered by a wide range of body styles, capable performance and a comfortable
Although the current-generation GMC Sierra 1500 pickup debuted just four years
ago, its more recently redesigned rivals have topped it in a few respects. But
this doesn't mean the GMC is as stale as month-old bread. Far from it,
actually. Thanks to its core strengths, the 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 remains one of
the top trucks in the light-duty, full-size pickup segment.
In terms of expected characteristics such as towing capacity and a wide range
of body style and trim level choices, the Sierra 1500 is right up there with
the competition. The Sierra provides a smooth, quiet ride and comfortable
seating, traits that make it ideal for long road trips. The GMC isn't without
faults, however. Compared to some of its competition (notably Dodge and
Toyota), the base "Work" trim's cabin looks rather dull. And while other brands
have stepped up the output of their base engines over the years, the Sierra's
V6 struggles to motivate such a large truck. Lastly, maneuverability is
hampered by a large turning radius.
Comparatively, the Ford F-150 has more innovative technology features
available, the Ram 1500 has a much nicer interior and smoother ride quality and
the Toyota Tundra is roomier in crew cab trim. Yet the 2012 GMC Sierra 1500
remains a solid choice in our book and deserves attention when cross-shopping
in this very competitive segment.
2012 GMC Sierra 1500 models:
The 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 is a half-ton full-size pickup that is offered in
standard cab, extended cab and crew cab body styles. Standard cabs and extended
cabs are available with either a standard 6-foot-6 bed or an 8-foot long bed.
Crew cabs only come with a short 5-foot-8 bed.
Regular cabs can be had in base Work or midlevel SLE trims, while the extended
and crew cabs are also available in the well-appointed SLT trim. An SL trim
slots in between the Work and SLE models, but is only available as a crew cab,
as is the range-topping Denali.
The Work trim comes with air-conditioning (for extended- and crew-cab
versions), a trip computer, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar
telematics, vinyl seat upholstery, a 40/20/40-split front bench seat and a
CD/MP3 stereo with an auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio. The SL adds
full power accessories, keyless entry, cruise control, satellite radio and
adjustable lumbar support for the driver.
The SLE trim adds seat upholstery in a more premium grade, a lockable
compartment with a power outlet built into the center cushion of the split
front seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a leather-wrapped steering
wheel. The premium SLT piles on chrome-clad alloy wheels, a premium interior
with a full center console and upgraded materials, a Bose audio system (with
iPod/USB input), leather seat upholstery, remote engine start, an exclusive
dash design with wood and metallic accents, 12-way power-adjustable/heated
front seats and rear audio controls.
Sierra Denali models trump the SLT with a unique powertrain, suspension tuning
emphasizing ride comfort, 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels, exterior styling
enhancements, a heated steering wheel and a turn-by-turn navigation feature for
Option availability varies with trim levels and body styles. It includes
several towing packages, the Z71 Off-Road package (skid plates and an off-road
suspension), special regional packages, the All-Terrain package (similar to the
Z71 but with special interior and exterior enhancements) and the XFE (extra
fuel economy) trim variant for the rear-wheel-drive 5.3-liter V8 crew cab. The
XFE features aerodynamic enhancements and lightweight aluminum components that
improve fuel economy.
Other options include 20- and 22-inch wheels, a rear back-up camera, upgraded
audio systems, Bluetooth, a navigation system with real-time traffic, a
rear-seat entertainment system, heated power-folding outside mirrors, a
sunroof, a power-sliding rear window, a cargo management system, rear park
sensors and ventilated front seats. An "EZ-Lift" tailgate is also offered and
requires only about half the effort to open and close compared to the standard
For 2012, the GMC Sierra 1500 receives only a few minor changes. Among them
are an updated navigation system (now hard-drive-based) and the inclusion of
trailer sway control as part of the stability control system.
Performance & mpg
The 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 is available with four different engine choices. In
the Work trim level, the Sierra is powered by a standard 4.3-liter V6 that
produces 195 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Buyers may upgrade to a
4.8-liter V8 that makes 302 hp and 305 lb-ft, or a 5.3-liter V8 that's good for
315 hp and 335 lb-ft. The SLE trims will have one of the
