Default 2015 GMC Sierra Z71

I decided to trade the Fusion in on this bad boy here. It is a 2015 GMC Sierra Z71 off road package with the 5.3L V8. Good for something like 360hp and 390 ft-tq.

It is Sonoma Red in color with black cloth interior. It is a double cab with the 6 foot bed. With the ability to run on 4 cylinders down the highway should get a solid 20 ish mpg on highway trips.

It was the most loaded Sierra double cab on the lot. So that is nice.

I got to drive it off the showroom floor too. Only had 3 miles on it.

I like the color too, and this is put together way better than the Ford was.

As this was not a technical question post, I moved this to feature your new rig in the Your Ride: GM Pictures & Videos section.
Wow Nate, awesome truck! Now that is what I call "trading up" !!
The color is like candy apple red = beauty!
I would like to test drive it..so don't leave the keys in it, if I'm around !

Thanks for moving the post. I really like the color too. I ordered up a K&N CAI for it. That should help open it up a bit. I also opened up the adaptive exhaust valve. It is a dummy valve that helps keep the exhaust quiet, who wants that when there is a 5.3l V8 with 360hp under the hood.

The only difference I have noticed with the CAI is the throttle response is a bit quicker. The engine does make a nice deep growl now, which it did not make before. This truck really surprises people with how much power it has. I've been bad a done a few burnout in it already. It is just so easy to light 'em up.
