Used 2015 GMC Sierra | Interent Auto Rent and Sales | Boise, ID

If you're in the market for a pickup truck, but aren't sure whether to opt for new or used, what about one that falls somewhere in between? Say hello to the 2015 GMC Sierra – a full-size pickup that's not too old, not too new, but just right. With its 2015 model year, the Sierra is only semi-used, won't break the bank with brand-new pricing, but is still fresh enough to feature all of the latest and great content. Sounds perfect, right? We think so! But there's much more to love about GMC's 2015 Sierra, so continue reading to learn all there is to know about this must-have truck.


Perks of 2015

2015 was a good year for the Sierra, seeing a number of changes, like an upgrade to the OnStar emergency telematics system and the addition of power-folding trailer-towing mirrors. Its top Denali trim also gained magnetic ride control suspension, and a spray-in bedliner. There was also the debut of a new powertrain – a 6.2-liter V8 paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which gave the Sierra the ultimate boost in awe-worthy power and strength.


Range of Power

As is typical for the full-size, light-duty pickup class, the 2015 Sierra offers a wide range for power. Though you may not get to build your Sierra as you would if you were buying it brand new, you will still be awarded no matter which powertrain you find under the hood. There are three possibilities – a 4.3-liter V6 (285 hp / 305 pound-feet of torque), a 5.3-liter V8 (355 hp / 383 pound-feet of torque), or a 6.2-liter V8 (420 hp / 460 pound-feet of torque). All come matched to a six-speed automatic transmission, except for the 6.2-liter V8, which may be paired to an eight-speed automatic.

Each powertrain is capable of meeting most truck owner's needs, especially the muscle-bound 6.2-liter V8, which is likely to handle more than enough. To prove this, here are some tow rates:

  • 4.3-liter V6 – 7,200 pounds

  • 5.3-liter V8 – 11, 200 pounds

  • 6.2-liter V8 – 12,000 pounds


Top Safety

Pickup trucks are known for their rugged and durable nature, and while this is expected in areas of hauling, towing and off-road fun, this is also true for the 2015 GMC Sierra in terms of safety. Whether on-road or off, the Sierra is designed to keep you and your passengers protected. Standard on all trim levels of the Sierra you'll find:


  • Antilock disc brakes

  • Traction and stability control with trailer sway control

  • Front and rear-seat side airbags

  • Side curtain airbags

  • OnStar emergency telematics with automatic crash notification, roadside assistance, remote door unlocking and stolen vehicle assist

Though optional in 2015, there is a good chance of finding the Sierra with a handful of advanced safety features and alerts, such as:

  • Rearview camera

  • Front and rear parking assistance

  • Lane-departure warning system

  • Forward-collision alert system


Fully-Loaded Trims

There's no doubt that one of the main reasons to buy a newer vehicle is because of the latest and greatest content it delivers. The 2015 Sierra may not be the newest kid on the block, but it does come with some exciting equipment and features none the less. You can find the 2015 Sierra in four trims – the base, SLE, SLT and Denali. Each provides a little something different so it's easy to find a trim that calls your name.

The Sierra's SLT, for example, provides a superior mix of basics and luxury items that are hard to turn down. It includes:

  • Remote starting

  • Power-folding mirrors

  • Power-adjustable pedals

  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control

  • Leather upholstery

  • Heated and powered front seats

  • Driver-seat memory settings
