All of that would be fine and dandy if it were just another trim level, but in a fit of delusion—or marketing arrogance—GMC calls this a sport truck. Let me be clear: you can order the Elevation Edition with the Sierra's base, 285-hp 4.3-liter V6. Why do I care? Because GMC is better than this.
Remember the Syclone? That sucker was a supercar-stomping pickup that can still hold its own at the drag strip today.
This thing? It is the opposite in every conceivable way. What's worse, the General Motors parts bin contains everything GMC or Chevy needs to deliver a genuinely credible, pavement-pounding sport truck. We saw a hint of that in the Chevy Cheyenne concept:
Do and drop in one of the performance engines from GM's arsenal, and we're talking. But calling the Elevation Edition as a "sport truck"? That's not fooling anyone.
