The GMC 1500 is an American truck that was produced from 1973 to 1987 by General Motors. This vehicle was the first of its kind to have a full-sized body and a V8 engine, making it one of the most popular pickups in the United States. It came with a variety of options and configurations, allowing buyers to fit the truck to their needs.
The 1973 GMC 1500 was first introduced with two engine options: the 350 V8 and the 307 V6. Both engines could be mated to a three-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. The trucks had a standard 8ft bed with a tailgate and four-wheel drive was available as an option. The interior of the truck was roomy with plenty of head and legroom, and it was available in a number of trim levels including the Sierra, Custom and High Sierra.
As the years passed, the GMC 1500 underwent some major changes. In 1982, a new 5-liter V8 engine was offered, bringing more power and improved fuel economy. This engine was good for up to 220 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. In 1983, the truck was updated with a new grille, a larger front bumper, and a brushed aluminum insert in the tailgate. 1984 brought the new 4.3-liter V6 engine, with 140 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque.
In 1985, the GMC 1500 received another major overhaul. A new dash, updated headlights, and a redesigned grille were added, along with the new 305 cubic inch V6 engine. This engine was good for 160 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The interior was also redesigned for better comfort and convenience.
The final year for the GMC 1500 was 1987. This year brought the introduction of a 4.3-liter V6 engine, with 165 horsepower and 245 lb-ft of torque. This engine was the most powerful option at the time, making the truck a formidable choice for those who wanted power and performance.
The GMC 1500 was one of the best-selling pickups of its time. It was reliable, comfortable and powerful, making it a great choice for those looking for a full-size pickup. It's a testament to General Motors' commitment to build reliable vehicles that can stand the test of time.
