Whether you are barreling down the highway or towing heavy cargo, the 2018 GMC Sierra stands up to the task.

The 2018 GMC Sierra also has an updated interior that ensures a deviation from the norm: a luxurious look in a heavy-duty work truck. Available in the 2018 GMC Sierra is a 6.2L V8 Engine. It is notably the most powerful gasoline V8 engine in its class. It somehow still does all of this while remaining more fuel efficient than some other cars on the road.
The 2018 GMC Sierra has ample technology and safety features, so it’s a safe car for you or even your learning teens. If you hand the keys over to them, you can feel confident that they have heightened visibility and safety-features working to ensure their safety.
Max Towing Capacity
18 City / 24 Highway
The 2018 GMC Sierra power is what you would expect in a heavy-duty pickup. The optional 6.2-liter V-8 makes it class-leading with its 420 horsepower. It has a towing-capacity of up to 12,500 pounds when properly equipped and has an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2018 GMC Sierra has a single engine configuration. The 8-speed automatic transmission can tackle any kind of terrain. It shifts smoothly and remains in optimal gear, and it never flinches.
It provides the amount of punch needed for a pickup like the 2018 GMC Sierra. With its unique suspension calibration, it already comes with so much more added power. The Sierra is highly capable and endlessly configurable with a host of potent powertrain pairings. Whether you’re at a work site, off-roading, or cruising around town, there’s a Sierra for every situation.
The Sierra may not have received an extensive amount of changes for 2018, but that is part of its appeal. The biggest change, however, would have to be that the eAssist package is now available nationwide. It was once before very exclusive and only available on the west coast since 2016. GM calls this model a “mild hybrid,” since it uses a single electric motor. This means that even with a heightened towing capacity you can still be fuel-efficient.
And since it’s a 2018 GMC Sierra, it definitely has a spacious interior, usable cargo configurations, and technological equipment that does its best to aid in towing. This is what the towing package includes: a 10-way-adjustable power driver’s seat, a trailer hitch with wiring harness, an integrated garage-door opener, a remote vehicle starter, and for improved visibility, LED fog lamps.
The 2018 GMC Sierra has many select standard safety features. The makers of the Sierra obviously had the safety and security of both drivers and passengers in mind. Something important to note: your kids are going to love this vehicle, and you might be apprehensive about them driving it. But you shouldn’t be. General Motors’ Teen Driver allows parents to monitor speed and location of the truck. It can also mute the radio and make sure all of the truck’s occupants are buckled in tight.
The 2018 GMC Sierra has many technological updates as mentioned previously. Every Sierra has an infotainment system, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2018 GMC Sierra is just as advanced as all of its competitors, including the Ford F-150, and the Silverado, matching their technological capabilities down to the letter.
You can expect the following enhancements available with any 2018 GMC Sierra: a wireless charging pad, a 4G WiFi Hotspot, power outlets, an 8″ Diagonal GMC Infotainment System with Navigation, the all-important safety feature the Rear Seat Reminder and the MyGMC Mobile App.
The Stylish interior of the 2018 GMC Sierra is only further perfected when you add two of the most popular exterior colors: Deep Mahogany Metallic and Red Quartz Tintcoat. And if those aren’t your favorite, you might like the two new colors that are now available: Pepperdust and Dark Slate.
A stylish exterior and interior might not be the first thing you think of when you go out looking for a new pick up, but why not? The new 2018 models of any GMC vehicle comes standard with amazing features and every year these vehicles stand up to testing and receive updates to enhance them even further.
It’s safe to say the 2018 GMC Sierra received a fair number of cosmetic updates since 2017. Automatic shutters now sit behind the grille. They close to smooth airflow over the front end of the truck, to protect it. Isn’t that a neat feature?
It’s definitely an interesting addition to the overall stunning look of the grille and its part of what works to improve fuel economy on the highway. What’s better than that?
Even further, GMC added clever running boards to the flatbed, which is another great update. Something you might not have known you needed, now makes working in and out of your truck seamless. The running boards power out for easy entry into the cabin, no more high-stepping and risking injury! It also looks cool when it’s opening.
These running boards also motor rearward for quick access to the bed of the truck. It could be argued that this is the most important features of the truck. Despite exterior, interior and technology upgrades, all of these features aren’t nearly as necessary as having a huge flatbed, for all of your hauling and storage needs.
Overall this “professional-grade pickup” does what you would expect it to and more. Critics prefer the SLE crew cab with the short box. Even at such a low starting MSRP, this cab apparently provides the best all-around value.
