GMC recently graced us with two special-edition variations of its Sierra 1500 full-size pickup truck, the Sierra Carbon and Sierra Elevation. These appearance packages offer potential Sierra customers more customization options and additional features previously not offered on the GMC full-sizer, but which one do you prefer?
Let’s start with the Sierra Carbon. The Carbon package, despite its name, adds no carbon fiber to the Sierra. Instead it sees the addition of two carbon-fiber looking stripes on the hood and tailgate along with a black-painted grille and body-matched door handles and mirror caps. There is also four-inch tubular side-assist steps, black 22-inch alloy wheels and fog lamps. Carbon-equipped Sierras add content such as remote keyless start, a Universal Home Remote, a 110-volt power outlet and dual-zone climate control, too.
The Sierra Elevation offers customers a body-colored front grille surround along with color-matched door handles, mirror caps, side moldings and front and rear bumpers. Elevation Sierras will also come with LED headlamps, fog lamps, and black-painted 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The pack adds some premium content too, such as remote keyless entry, power mirrors, a 110-volt AC power outlet and LED lighting for the cargo box.
Both Elevation and Carbon models are available with the base 4.3-liter V6 engine or the EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 in conjunction with a 2WD or 4WD system. The only difference between them is the custom equipment offered, so which one would you rather see in your garage, the Carbon or the Elevation? Vote and discuss below.
