If you want a truck with advanced safety features and proven crash test scores, choosing a used 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 is a no-brainer.
Thankfully, OnStar is included in every configuration of this truck. Should an accident occur and you’re unable to contact emergency services, this system will do it for you. Even if it’s a less serious problem like locking your keys inside the car, GMC can open the vehicle remotely no matter where you are.
KBB.com lauds the Sierra’s optional Driver-Alert Seat. This safety feature works through the forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems to notify you whenever you’re approaching potential danger. For example, if you’re drifting too far right, the same side of the driver’s chair will vibrate. That way, in the heat of the moment you don’t have to wonder what you’re doing wrong.
Not surprisingly, the Sierra received top marks from both the government and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The first awarded the 2015 model a perfect five-star overall rating, while the latter gave it the best possible score for its moderate-overlap frontal offset crash test.
