Refined muscle. Those two words describe the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck, which promises to make a good accounting of itself during a day’s work in the Back 40 or a night on the town.
The Sierra is a full-sized truck with three engine options and multiple body and bed designs. Our test truck, an SLT Crew Cab, accommodated a driver and four passengers, and featured a 5-foot, 8-inch bed. One rainy Saturday, we laid out tarps in the bed – not that we really needed to, since the truck's bed had a rugged spray-on bed-liner – and picked up an impressive load of firewood. The Sierra seemed made for the job.
