When one does something special, you can be sure the other will as well. Chevy just announced the Silverado Custom Sport edition, and last year Ram Truck rolled out their 1500 Black Express.
Now GMC’s 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition will be hitting dealer lots.
The Sierra Elevation Edition – a uniquely styled full-size truck that combines a bold, monochromatic look with the latest connectivity technologies – goes on sale this month and is based on the Sierra 1500 double cab with 1SA trim.
Pricing for the GMC 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition starts at $34,865 for a 2WD model equipped with the standard 4.3L V-6 and $38,795 for a 4.3L/4WD configuration.
Models with the available 5.3L V-8 start at $35,960 for 2WD and $39,890 for 4WD.
It’s offered in four exterior colors and features body-color exterior appointments, 20-inch black-painted wheels, fog lamps and projector-beam headlamps with light-emitting diode (LED) signature lighting.
Standard connectivity features include OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, with a three-month/3GB trial (whichever comes first), GMC IntelliLink with color display and Bluetooth wireless technology for select phones.
