Incredible Performance Features 

Besides the comprehensive range of high-performing engines, the new Sierra 1500 also embraces a wide suite of performance features that support the engine and the whole of the powertrain system to deliver unparalleled performance. Some of these performance features are:

These selectable traction modes allow you to quickly switch between different traction configurations to optimize traction, powertrain calibrations, and stability control system calibrations on road surfaces under different driving conditions. The available modes are:

  1. Normal
