Performance & Capability


Three engines are available on your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation. The 2.7L Turbo comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and powered forward by 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. A 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 upgraded gas engine is available, while a diesel variant in the form of the 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I6 exists at the top-level.

10-speed Automatic Transmission

The 10-speed automatic transmission is electronically controlled, with both overdrive and Driver Shift Control. For when you’re trailering, the Tow/Haul mode cuts down on shift cycling, delivering improved control and better cooling. The Powertrain Grade Braking utilizes both the engine and transmission to keep the Sierra at a steady speed when going downhill, helping to prevent excessive brake wear and to give you more control. Cruise Grade Braking will automatically downshift the Sierra Elevation should you exceed the set cruising speed by a certain margin.

Single-Speed Autotrac Transfer Case

As part of the Single-Speed Autotrac Transfer Case there’s 3 transfer case modes for you to get the most of your Sierra’s modes depending on your circumstances.

  • 2WD Hi Mode: Improves fuel efficiency through the disengaged transfer case and front driveline hardware.
  • 4WD Auto Mode: Allows for advantages of full-time active four wheel drive system.
  • 4WD Hi Mode: Keeps high pre-emptive torque for better traction compared to 4WD Auto.
  • Terrain Mode: Improves low-speed traction and off-road control.
