GMC Sierra Cold Air Intakes

Power up your pickup with an aftermarket GMC Sierra cold air intake. Cold air intakes are responsible for driving cool air into your engine to combine with fuel vapor during the combustion process. This is essential for your truck engine to generate power. When enough air gets into your engine, it operates effectively. By increasing the amount of air that's going to your engine, you can actually boost the performance of your truck and enhance the power significantly. We offer cold air intakes that are made to allow air to flow freely through your truck. By using one of these intakes over a stock intake, you'll boost your truck's power, and you can even improve the way it feels to step on the gas pedal of your Sierra. We've assembled an overview of Sierra cold air intakes and the technology behind it that you can use to learn more about these parts. Take the time to choose the right intake for your pickup, and you'll get more power and performance out of your ride as a result.

Best Cold Air Intake for GMC Sierra

The best GMC Sierra cold air intake for your pickup is the one that fits it properly and increases the power of your ride as much as possible. When you opt for an intake, you're likely focused on the performance gains more than anything else. That means you should get an intake that lets as much air get to your engine as possible. There are other considerations to make when choosing an intake, though. The color and the type of filter a cold air intake comes equipped with should help determine your decision as well. Choose the product that will fit your needs better than the other options do.


Choose a quality aftermarket cold air intake and improve your truck by:


  • increasing the air that flows into your engine
  • boosting power to your ride
  • improving the throttle feel
  • dressing up your truck's engine


The appearance of your cold air intake and the type of filter should help determine which product you choose as well. Look at the intakes that are the most attractive looking if you want to dress up your engine and you plan on adding additional parts (such as a new throttle body) and accessories to your engine as well. For instance, it makes sense to get a chrome intake if you are going to add other chrome accessories. Look at the type of filter the intake has and look at the price, how often it needs to be cleaned and how difficult it is to replace. Consider whether the filter is going to be something that you'll enjoy working with or if it's going to be a serious hassle to deal with. This should help determine which cold air intake makes sense to purchase for your Sierra.

Cold Air Intake Kits for GMC Sierra 1500

Our GMC Sierra cold air intakes are all matched to specific truck engines. If you get an intake meant for your truck's engine specifically, it will install easily and offer benefits. If you get a kit that isn't matched to your engine, it likely won't work at all or will take a lot of retrofitting to get it to install properly. Make sure you invest in the right GMC Sierra 1500 cold air intake kits for your ride so that they install well and perform as expected. If you spend the time to choose the right intake, you can see real performance gains as a result. To take your performance gains to the next level, you can invest in a more efficient exhaust system for your Sierra, and you can add a supercharger to your ride for even more impressive performance gains.
