For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features located on the upper trim levels could be put into the low trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL audio system along with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 GMC Sierra stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is straightforward to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2019 GMC Sierra has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
