Updated 2016 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition Revealed in Texas

Following a visual refresh for the 2016 GMC Sierra — that also applied to its 2016 Chevrolet Silverado mechanical twin — the big truck’s option packages have a slightly new look, too. The 2016 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition makes its debut at the Texas State Fair this week, with updated styling and new interior technologies.

As on all models of the Sierra 1500, the 2016 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition wears a new front fascia with LED running lights and HID headlights. The Elevation Edition, offered only on double-cab trucks, adds 20-inch black wheels, as well as body-colored bumpers, door handles, mirror caps, moldings, and grille. GMC calls it a “street-smart stance” for the truck. As on other versions of the 2016 GMC Sierra, the interior now features a 7-inch infotainment screen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Elevation Edition also comes standard with black-painted tow hooks, heated mirrors, a remote-lockable tailgate, a six-speaker sound system, and a 110-volt power outlet. General Motors’ 8-speed automatic transmission becomes available on the truck’s 5.3-liter V-8 engine; it was previously offered only with the 6.2-liter mill.
