2018 GMC Sierra Trim Levels and Features

While you think that 2018 GMC Sierra only focuses on power, you should know that it also comes with a long list of safety and luxury features.

Other trim levels that you can choose are the base, SLT, SLE, and Denali. All of these trim levels are available in various bed and cab configurations. While the base model is equipped with some nice features, but it is always better if you choose the SLE which has more features. Another choice is the SLT which strikes the balance between functionalities and amenities. However, for those who want it all, then the top trim level which is the Denali would be a great choice.

The base model comes with some features such as automatic xenon headlamps, 17-inch steel wheels, a six-speed automatic transmission, and power windows.
