The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 introduces several important updates and changes compared to the preceding 2022 model year, and now, interested fans and potential customers can spec the pickup as they see fit via the official online configurator at GMC’s website.
As GM Authority exclusively covered in August, pricing for the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 has increased across the trim level range as compared to the preceding 2022 model year, with starting MSRPs rising between $900 and $1,900, depending on the trim level selected.
As such, the least-expensive 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 on offer, specifically the Sierra Pro in the Regular Cab / Standard Box body configuration with rear-wheel drive and the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, is now priced at $40,020. Meanwhile, the most-expensive 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 on offer, specifically the Denali Ultimate in a Crew Cab / Short Box body configuration with four-wheel drive and the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, is now priced at $83,695. Note that prices include a destination freight charge (DFC) of $1,795.
Arriving later in the model year, the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 also introduces the new AT4X AEV Edition, which elevates the light-duty pickup with even more off-roading goodness thanks to development input from American Expedition Vehicles. Standout upgrades include new stamped steel bumpers, skid plates, unique 18-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, and more. Looking ahead, the “regular” 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X (or rather, non-AEV Edition AT4X models) will equip several components from the AT4X AEV Edition as standard, including the bumpers, skid plates, grille, and tires.
Under the hood, the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is available with four engine options, including the turbo 2.7 I4 L3B and atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engines already mentioned, as well as the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine. Critically, the latest 2023 model also introduces the new 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine as a replacement for the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel engine offered previously.
