Reviews Summary

Verdict: The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full-size pickup truck that can be configured as a basic work vehicle, an off-roader, or a luxurious long-distance cruiser. However, that can also be said of the rival Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and Toyota Tundra, as well as the GMC’s twin—the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. In order to stay competitive with its rivals, the Sierra 1500 offers a number of notable features that combine for a well-executed pickup.

Reviews Summary

Midsize trucks are having a moment. Rugged, off-road-ready lifestyle pickups and SUVs are all currently in vogue. In the past few years, we’ve seen redesigns for the Ford Ranger, the Nissan Frontier, and, long-awaited, the Toyota Tacoma. General Motors has joined the party with a redesigned GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado.

Smaller trucks' popularity has ebbed and flowed through the decades, but based on all of these redesigns, automakers are convinced that there are sales to be made. One way these trucks have evolved is by pivoting from downsized work vehicles offering weekend-warrior and lifestyle-off-roader versions, to focusing specifically on those weekend warrior and lifestyle shoppers.

Verdict: The Colorado has evolved from merely offering more content and upgraded versions to focusing on well-equipped, upgraded trims catering to recreation more than work.
