Finding affordable coverage for a GMC Sierra is fairly simple, but it depends on a lot of things such as the safety rating for your Sierra, your geographic location, and if you have a history of accidents. Florida drivers will pay on average $1,697 each year to insure their Sierra, but that is an approximation calculated using a 40-year-old single female driver with full physical damage coverage and $250 deductibles.
The problem with using this number is the good chance you are not 40 years old and maybe not even female, possibly married instead of single, and maybe you want higher deductibles. Just a minor difference in the factors used in pricing a policy can result in a big discrepancy in the cost of insurance.
Auto insurance is unique to each driver, so the only way to find affordable rates for your GMC is to compare as many rates as you can.
The trim level of your GMC will most likely have an effect on the insurance rate, so the cost to insure a Sierra SLE Regular Cab 2WD model will be $298 cheaper than the cost to insure the more well-appointed Sierra Denali Crew Cab 4WD model, as demonstrated by the prices below.

Price comparison of only insuring for liability
Reducing premiums for car insurance is important to the majority of vehicle owners, and a great way to save on the cost of insurance for a GMC Sierra is to only buy liability insurance. The diagram below illustrates the difference between insurance prices when comparing full coverage to liability only. The prices are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $100 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no other discounts are factored in.
If we average the cost for all age groups, comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy costs $3,102 per year over and above liability only. That is a large expense which might make you wonder if it’s a good idea to buy full coverage. There is no definitive formula of when to exclude physical damage insurance, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it could be time to drop full coverage.
