GMC: What is SLE?
SLE stands for “Special Luxury Edition.” For drivers looking for a GMC truck that is one step above the base and SL models, the SLE if an excellent choice for drivers in search for a little more standard amenities in the exterior and interior features of their vehicle. The SLE is the introductory trim to the plethora of options that GMC provides their drivers and is a common choice for many truck buyers.
If you are considering the SLE trim in the GMC Canyon, 1500, 2500, or 3500 truck models, you can look forward to simple and easy to use functions for your everyday commute. Standard features for the SLE trim include items such as the 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen with IntelliLink, front bucket seats, and different styles of premium painted aluminum bright machined wheels. Keep in mind these options differ depending on your model choice for your truck. You also have the options to upgrade your SLE with packages such as the SLE Convenience, Driver Alert, SLE Chrome Appearance, and Nightfall Packages, which are designed to amp up your truck options for your necessary driving needs.
Differences Between SLE and SLT
There aren’t too many differences between the SLE and the SLT, however, depending on your daily commute or how often and how far you use your truck for trailering, you may want to consider one or the other for their engine options. For example, the GMC Sierra 1500 SLE comes standard with a 4.3 EcoTec3 V6 engine and has the availability for a 5.3-liter V8 engine. This is ideal for the daily commuter who wants the necessary power when they need it, but not for the routine use of hauling heavy payloads or trailering. For those who require more power will find it in the SLT trim which comes standard with the 5.3-liter V8, and also has the option for the 6.2-liter V8 engine. Also, there are more interior and exterior options such as heated front seats, moonroof, and availability for high-performance LED Headlamps in the SLT trim selection.
