2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Gets Small Price Increase3
The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 has received small price increases across all trim levels and powertrain combinations.
Effective immediately, the base-level 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 and the SLT trim level will be $400 more expensive than they were previously. The Denali and AT4 trim levels, meanwhile, will receive price increases of $500 and $600, respectively. The Elevation gets a steep price increase of $900, while the SLE gets the biggest price increase of $1,000.
Just as with the recent price increases for the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500, these price increases will remain constant on trucks with rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive and no matter which engine/transmission configuration is chosen. The above price increases were calculated with the destination and freight charges included in the vehicle’s base price.
Pricing for the 2021 GMC Sierra previously started at $31,695 including destination for a Regular Cab Long Bed truck in base-level Sierra trim level with the 4.3L LV3 EcoTec3 V6 engine and rear-wheel-drive. The new pricing structure adds $400 to this price, so this same truck will now start at $32,095.
GM applied numerous changes and updates to the GMC Sierra 1500 for the 2021 model year, including new exterior colors. The new exterior colors on the 2021 GMC Sierra include Ebony Twilight Metallic, Cayenne Red Tintcoat, Hunter Metallic and Brownstone Metallic, which replace Deep Mahogany Metallic, Red Quartz Tintcoat, Smokey Quartz Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic.
The truck also gets new standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, improved towing technology features and an abundance of other package-related changes.
The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 is built at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana. The light-duty version of the Sierra will also be built at the GM Oshawa Assembly plant in southern Ontario starting in 2022 alongside the Silverado 1500. The Oshawa Assembly plant is currently undergoing renovations in order to build the two trucks.

Wireless Apple Car Play and Wireless Android Auto are only standard on the SLT, AT4, and Denali! They are available on the SLE and Elevation trim level when you elect to get the Preferred Package.
Price goes up at the same time they remove the 10 speed on most trims for a crappy and cheaper 8 speed.
Board members must be so proud.
As GM tries to keep up with demand for Crew Cab Models, they want to sneak in a Price Hike to go along with it, I guess this comes with the territory as if you go to the Grocery Store to see an unexpected price increase on your favorite box of cereal or even select cut steaks.
