2014 GMC Sierra 3500 Interior
As expected, the interior Work Truck does have a utilitarian part of the vinyl seats, rubber floor covering and very little in the way of creature comforts. The Isle offers more cabin invites with cloth seats and carpeting, but both models come standard with a three-man front bench requires a dash more trucklike. Choosing the bucket seats adds a dash fancier and center console via USB. The SLT and DENAL are the classiest of the bunch.
The front seats very comfortable, though some drivers may find it a bit awkward driving position for only a tilt steering wheel and the gas and brake pedals that are far apart to accommodate work boots. We’re also particularly fond of finicky little buttons on the center of the pile higher trims. Earlier crew features a fold-up seat and rear allow that some of the things waiting to be done in the cabin. We give a decent room for those seated in the back, although it still falls to the competitiveness of the majority of the size of the passenger space.
