While the black truck in the photos appears to be Emperor Palpatine’s pickup of choice to pick up young and vulnerable Jedi knights, you’ll be pleased to know that the 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation Edition is offered in more than one body color, saving it from the confusion of being referred to as the 2015 Sierra Carbon Edition, which is something different.
All-in-all, the 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition incorporates a body-colored grille surround, color-keyed door handles, mirror caps, side moldings and front and rear bumpers. This gives it a more monochromatic appearance a la Sierra Denali, but without the extra chrome. Elevation Edition models also feature premium LED headlamps, fog lamps, and black-painted 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
Content-wise, all 2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition models will come with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, a 110-volt AC power outlet, and LED cargo box lighting. The 2015 Sierra Elevation will also come with OnStar 4G LTE, and a 4.2-inch Intellilink color touchscreen infotainment system and Bluetooth phone connectivity as standard equipment. So far, the Elevation edition truck will launch with the 285 hp 4.3L V6 or optional 355 hp5.3L V8 EcoTec3 engines.
The 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition will be available at GMC dealerships by the end of 2014, with pricing to come at a later date.
