2013 GMC Sierra 3500HD Interior
As expected, the Work Truck interior has the most utilitarian system with vinyl seats, rubber floor covering and the very little in the way of creature comforts. The Isle gives the cabin more inviting with cloth seats and carpeting, but both models come standard with three passenger front bench requires a dash more trucklike. Choosing bucket seats will add a center console with storage. The 2013 GMC Sierra 3500HD SLT and Denali are the classiest of the bunch, with interior similar to that of the 2013 GMC Yukon Suv.
Front seats are quite comfortable, though some drivers may find the situation a bit awkward because of the tilt-only steering wheel and gas and brake pedals that are far apart to accommodate work boots drive. We’re not particularly fond of small and fiddly buttons on the center stack in the higher models of color. Extended CAB seats at the rear of the acceptable in terms of comfort, and the cab crew certainly roomier, while the crew cab trucks from Ford and Ram to give a bit roomier rear housing.
