GMC Sierra Elevation Edition Returns For 2016

GMC will continue to offer the Elevation Edition for 2016 with the styling upgrades and other features new to the entire Sierra 1500 lineup.

These enhancements include revised front-end styling with new, high-intensity discharge projector-beam headlamps and GMC Signature LED lighting.

Available on Sierra double cab, the Elevation Edition brings a more sinister appearance thanks to body-color elements including moldings, door handles, mirror caps, surround and bumpers. The truck rolls on 20-inch black-painted aluminum wheels and features Elevation Edition badging.

Inside, the Sierra Elevation Edition features a new IntelliLink infotainment system with a 7-inch-diagonal screen incorporating CarPlay and Android Auto phone integration capability. In addition, OnStar 4G LTE and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot allow continuous connectivity for up to seven personal devices.

All Sierra Elevation Edition models are fitted as standard with remote keyless entry, remote locking tailgate, outside heated power-adjustable mirrors, a 110-volt AC power outlet, black recovery hooks and a six-speaker audio system, among other things.

Available features include all-terrain tires, a Rear Vision camera system, trailering equipment and XM Radio.

The 2016 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition is offered as standard with the 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 engine delivering 285hp and 305lb-ft (413Nm) of torque. An available 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 produces 355hp and offers up to 9,400 pounds (4,264 kg) of trailering capacity (2WD). Customers can choose two- or four-wheel drive – in both cases, the Eaton locking rear differential is standard.

The 2016 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition will go on sale in the first quarter of 2016.
