When you're shopping for a truck, there is a broad range of choices. But if you're considering a used truck, then you may find just what you're looking for in the 2012 GMC Sierra. Standing as a light-duty, full-size pickup, the 2012 Sierra offers several core strengths that meet the needs of truck owners. Here's a look at the Sierra's top strengths that continue to make it a must-have truck.


Fully-Loaded Trims 

One of the main strengths of the 2012 GMC Sierra is its five trim levels that are fully-loaded with all sorts of equipment and features. The Sierra can be fond in the Work, SL, SLE, SLT and Denali trims, standard, extended or crew cab body styles, and bed lengths of 6.6-foot, 5.8-foot or 8 foot. The Work trim is the ideal truck if you are looking for a simple and straight-forward truck that doesn't drown in fluff. It comes with a tilt-only steering wheel, cruise control, vinyl upholstery and 40/20/40-split front bench seat. Electronics are on the basic side, too, with CD/MP3 stereo, auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio.

Take one step up the Sierra's 2012 lineup and you'll get a few extra perks that are definitely worth your while, like full power accessories, keyless entry, and cruise control.

The most popular choice for many is the Sierra's mid-range trims – the SLE and SLT. These trims offer and excellent combo of basic and upscale content, like auto-dimming rearview mirror, premium upholstery, and leather-wrapped steering wheel. The SLT, however, does come with even more, such as:


  • Leather upholstery

  • Remote engine start

  • 12-way power-adjustable/heated fronts eats

  • Rear audio controls

  • Bose audio system with iPod/USB input

Top content can ultimately be found in the Sierra's top Denali trim, boasting a unique powertrain, comfort-oriented suspension tuning, 20” cast-aluminum wheels, exterior styling elements, heated steering wheel, and turn-by-turn navigation.
