Last week, Chevrolet announced the University of Texas Edition for the 2015 Chevy Silverado. This week, it’s time for the Silverado’s sibling truck, the 2015 GMC Sierra, to take the spotlight. In honor of that notion, General Motors today announced the 2015 Sierra Carbon Edition, which is meant to add some flair to the already distinctive pickup.
