2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition Features — Dream In Black

The 2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition is a sporty version of the regular Sierra which will be released by the end of the year. Its monochromatic, very attractive appearance will certainly impress the public. The sport truck, based on the 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 double-cab truck, will have numerous features which will make it stand out from the conventional and ordinary design. The standard 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition is equipped with great technology and powered by a EcoTec3 V6 engine. The full-size truck will be available with a double cab only which is understandable knowing that the 2015 Sierra 1500 double-cab pickup truck was used as the base for this model. The price of the 2015 Elevation Edition isn’t known at the moment. The manufacturer said that pricing will be announced later, but having in mind that the release date of the truck is very near, we expect the pricing to be public very soon.

There’s also Bluetooth phone connectivity, but aside from the connectivity, the other Elevation’s features are also great.
