GMC Sierra Classic 1500 Models and Sierra Classic 1500 History
At the same time as the all-new GMT900 platform-based GMC Sierra 1500 is introduced in 2007, half-ton truck customers were provided with the opportunity to buy the previously-offered GMT800 version of the pickup. Called the Sierra 1500 Classic, the truck could be acquired in three different bed box lengths as well as regular, extended and crew cab configuration for occupants. Various powertrain options existed for the 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 Classic ranging from rear-wheel drive V-6 to four-wheel drive V-8 powered models. The VortecMax Performance Package with a 345-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-8 engine was also available on the Sierra 1500 Classic capable of pulling up to 10,000 pounds. Along with the basic Sierra 1500, Classic versions of the Sierra 1500 Hybrid and Sierra Denali are also part of GMC's 2007 model year line-up. The GMC Sierra 1500 Classic model was discontinued after one year of availability.
