What You Want to Know about the Sierra's History
The history of the GMC Sierra closely follows that of the Chevy Silverado, as the Sierra is essentially the GMC variation of this pickup. The GMC Sierra saw significant reengineering for the 1999 model year, which is when it first got its current name. It was originally available as an extended or regular cab, with the crew cab arriving in 2005. The 1999 Sierra 1500 was available with a 4.3-liter V6, a 255-horsepower 4.8-liter V8, or a 270-horsepower 5.3-liter V8.
The Sierra 1500 C3 launched in 2001 as a high-end variation with Dynamic Brake Propositioning System, a unique appearance, and other high-quality features. This C3 became the Denali for 2002, which is also when the GMC Sierra began to offer Quadrasteer, a four-wheel steering system that didn't last long due to lack of interest and price. In 2007, the GMC Sierra got a new platform as well as an updated design and the choice of a 4.3-liter V6, 4.8-liter V8, and 5.3-liter V8.
