You can make your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 yours and yours alone for whatever your needs may be: daily diver? Done. Workhorse on a job site for towing and hauling? No problem. Towing weekend toys to the cottage and back? It can do that too. There’s no need the GMC Sierra 1500 can’t answer, and that’s mostly due to the fact that three “base” models are available to choose from on which you can build your ideal final product.
